SymplBrush was designed to eliminate the most common cause of dental decay, injury, and gum disease; user error. By harnessing the equivalent of twenty toothbrushes working simultaneously, SymplBrush delivers a safe, clinically proven, and effective clean each and every time you use it. Our patented "Living Hinge" bristle design allows SymplBrush to be the first effective, safe, full-arch toothbrush as proven by the Forsyth Institute, an affiliate of The Harvard Dental School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The SymplBrush's stretch-fit design accommodates a variety of mouth sizes while delivering 5-7mm of bristle movement and up to 900 strokes per minute. This mechanical design allows the bristles to contact each tooth surface for 5-10 seconds when used in the 30-second guided mode, as opposed to just 1.5 seconds when using traditional toothbrushes as directed for two minutes.
The American Dental Association reports that on average, people spend only ~45 seconds brushing their teeth. If used for two minutes, with the proper angle, and pressure, there is substantial clinical evidence that both manual and electric toothbrushes are highly effective. Despite this understanding, and generations of dentists recommending two minutes, twice daily for brushing, the ADA research shows most people are not in compliance. SymplBrush was therefore developed to address the greatest cause of dental decay, injury, and gum disease: user error. By guiding the user through a programmed, thirty-second mode, SymplBrush provides an effective clean well within the forty-five seconds we know most people are willing to spend brushing. A self-directed manual mode allows users more control of the length of brushing time, if desired (not necessary).
First-in-Class: Engineered to be Effective
Oral care is all about the disruption of the sticky, bacterial-laden plaque that forms on tooth surfaces. To destroy plaque, toothbrush bristles need to physically interact with it. A useful analogy is a soap bubble floating through the air; if you're gentle, you can catch it in your hand, but blunt force will burst the bubble immediately. Previous attempts at mouthpiece toothbrushes have failed because they focused on the vibration of silicone bristles to destroy plaque. As in the above analogy, these failed devices merely shake the plaque; they do not create the force needed to disrupt the plaque. With its novel design, SymplBrush creates 5-7mm of movement of nylon bristles designed to deliver just enough force to destroy plaque, without injuring your teeth or gums.
Clinical Data: Astonishing Results
The Forsyth Institute conducted a six-week clinical study in which SymplBrush users were measured against a control group of manual toothbrush users. SymplBrush users were 137% better at reducing gingivitis when used twice daily for one minute when compared to the control group. This finding is further supported by immunological tests that measured a 70% greater reduction in inflammatory markers present in patients with gum disease, compared to manual brush users.
Dr. Hatice Hasturk, DDS, Ph.D., the lead investigator of the study, observed that while manual toothbrush users removed plaque sufficiently to improve gingivitis, they injure their gum tissue each time they brush, making improvements in gingivitis likely to be only short-term. In contrast, SymplBrush’s gentle movement allows the gum tissue time to heal and long-term inflammation to decrease as it doesn’t traumatize the tissue.
Most toothpastes are designed to foam up and stay on a toothbrush for two minutes. SymplPaste was designed using NASAdeveloped nanotechnology to foam up and rinse off quickly while remineralizing your teeth from the inside out. Designed to be SLS, Fluoride free, Vegan, and 100% organic, it's possibly the cleanest toothpaste on earth.
Why SymplBrush Works
People are born with 32 teeth. With three surfaces per tooth, plus an extra surface for the back of your last molars, that's a total of 100 surfaces you need to clean when brushing. If you brush for 45 seconds like the average person, each surface only has contact with your toothbrush for 0.5 seconds! With its unique stretch fit design, SymplBrush allows approximately 10 seconds of tooth-bristle contact. That's 20x longer!
After hundreds of years of incremental design improvements to the toothbrush, SymplBrush safely and effectively introduces automated technology to remove user error and variability from oral care. Just as the the self-driving automobile will revolutionize the way we drive, SymplBrush will revolutionize home oral care.
