Los Angeles, California, 2018-Mar-26 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — Bristl combines proven science of light therapy with sonic vibration to improve oral care. The company also offers a subscription service to replace brush heads, so having the best oral health is also convenient.

Available on Kickstarter on Monday, March 26th at 9am (PST)

The combination of Bristl’s features, convenience, and style make for true market disruption:

Gum Health
Visible Red light (620–750 nm in wavelength) has been clinically proven to heal gum tissue and prevent inflammation. The same technology is often used in skincare; Bristl is bringing it to the everyday tooth brushing routine.

Kill Bacteria
Visible blue light (450–495 nm in wavelength) has been clinically proven to kill and prevent oral bacteria that causes gingivitis and other gum disease. This safe and natural blue light is proven to be effective, and Bristl is proud to bring it to market.

Get Rid of Plaque
Bristl has three sonic vibration modes: regular, gentle, and off. Sonic vibration is recommended by dentists as it has the highest cleaning ability without damaging gums. The brush head is also particularly designed to reach in crack and crevices while letting light pass through the bristles.

A Few Stats
According to a study published in the Journal of Periodontology and Implant Science (Vol. 44: pp. 280-287), Bristl’s technology (even with only red light) was effective in achieving the following:

  • 86% reduction in bacteria that causes destruction of tooth supporting tissue
  • 117% improvement in PPD (Periodontal Pocket Depth) which indicates gum health
  • 80% improvement in CAL (Clinical Attachment Level) which is another metric for gum health

Why Us?
The Bristl Science team consists of a group of innovators and scientists looking to use advanced technology to improve everyday lives. While we of course wish to build a successful business, we are doing so responsibly; Bristl has committed to donating a percentage of every sale to America’s Toothfairy to provide underserved children with dental care. Whether a customer or an underserved child, we’re on a mission to maximize oral health everywhere.

This is just the beginning. The Bristl Science team will work tirelessly to innovate and build products that improve lives, maximize health, and promote good. The Bristl light therapy toothbrush is just the first step toward a healthier future.

UK Based Teeth Whitening Clinic, Smile Tech, Welcomes the New UK Law that Means Only Dentists can Perform Teeth Whitening Treatments

Following calls by the General Dental Council (GDT) to change the law and dental regulations to stop non-dentists carrying out teeth whitening treatments, those changes have been put in place and the law come into force in a move that has been applauded by the British Dental Health Foundation and the UK’s leading cosmetic teeth whitening clinic, Smile Tech.

A spokesperson for Smile Tech, which is one of the largest cosmetic teeth whitening providers in the UK and operate in shopping centres says, “We employ dentists to provide high quality, professional, safe treatments and an affordable price to the customer and that is why we have over 20,000 happy customers on our books to date.” They add, “We have always felt strongly about and fought those providers who have ignored the health and safety risks and given the professional teeth whitening clinics a bad name.”

Before this law change came into place, the regulations regarding tooth whitening procedures were a bit of a grey area. The 1984 Dentists Act came at a time before teeth whitening was a common practice, with the Act stating that “only dentists can perform dental procedures.” As teeth whitening is often seen as a cosmetic process as opposed to a dental process, non-dentists and non-dental professionals were able to carry out the treatment.

“There was often a lot of bad press towards teeth whitening clinics and providers that operated from shopping centres because there was very little control over who could or couldn’t carry out this procedure.” Smile Tech’s spokesperson explains, “We really suffered from this, as even though we have always used fully trained dentists, our Smile Tech premises are within shopping centres so we were bundled into this ‘unsafe’ category – which Smile Tech really isn’t!”

Smile Tech are now hoping that with local treading standards officers and the General Dental Council taking action to close down and prosecute any premises continuing to let non-dentists and non-dental care professionals carry out teeth whitening treatments, their customers and prospects can rest assured that they are safe in Smile Tech’s professional hands.

“Every single one of our clients have to go through a full and thorough consultation with our dentist before they undergo their teeth whitening treatment. Each year we turn away hundreds of people who, following their consultation, have been found to be unsuitable for the procedure.” Says the spokesperson for Smile Tech. They continue, “During the treatment’s set-up, we go to great lengths prior to applying the whitening gel to completely and totally isolate the teeth to ensure that the gel will not come into contact with the client’s gum. We also use a destaining agent and a de-sensitiser to give our clients the safest and most comfortable experience, whilst of course still achieving a great result.”

XpresSmile’s New Name is ExpresShine: New Brand Reflects Expansion Into National and Global Markets

XpresSmile has announced it has a new name: ExpresShine. The new name is the result of explosive growth into new markets, both national and global.

“XpresSmile has long been synonymous with brighter smiles and whiter teeth, but with more and more people looking for solutions to improve their appearance it made sense to offer our services to a broader audience,” said Kelly Lanspa, President of ExpresShine. “We have looked at areas that lack quality choices for teeth whitening and decided to make our products available to these markets. In addition, our new name is also much easier for people to remember.”

ExpresShine is the leading teeth-whitening vendor for Dentists, Salons, and Spas. ExpresShine offers only Dental grade products that are FDA approved. ExpresShine is experiencing explosive growth in the Dental markets and Salons and teeth whitening spas. ExpresShine is also consistently recognized by dental professional for our FDA approved materials and high quality. ExpresShine continues XpresSmile’s commitment to quality and customers service and will be introducing new products and services to support our customers and prospects. Please come visit ExpresShine and read our reviews on Facebook, if you are an XpresSmile customer, please come to ExpresShine’s Facebook page and post your reviews there to help us update our page and let others hear about your experience.

ExpresShine is committed to Quality. ExpresShine only uses FDA approved vendors and supplies, made in the USA. ExpresShine is also now international and is growing world-wide; we are looking for new representatives interested in carrying our teeth whitening business and line of products. ExpresShine has a proven record of excellent customer service and training programs for customers.

ExpresShine teeth whitening kits come in glamorous, individually packaged kits that can be easily displayed in storefronts. Our whitening kits are superior to others on the market because the ingredients are concentrated. The gels are made fresh in California at a FDA certified dental lab. Hydrogen Peroxide gels are not easy to make and cheaper gels will break down and separate quickly. Making H202 gel is like crafting a fine wine. It takes the highest concentration of H202 (so the gel won’t separate), a balanced PH, and water base for strong yet gentle whitening. In fact, it took our lab 7 months to create gels that have a shelf life of 18 months- the highest of any H202 gel on the market. Carbamide has this shelf life, but it doesn’t whiten as well. Each kit includes a bib, teeth wipe, transparent, form fitting mouth tray or paint-on brush tip and cheek retractor and 12% or 16% hydrogen peroxide gel that is made in the USA in an FDA registered, CE certified dental alb. The kit also includes rubber gloves and vitamin E swabs to reduce gum sensitivity. The syringes and gels are made exclusively for ExpresShine and include photo activator and the rubber plunger is removed so there is no chance for gel contamination from corroded rubber.

Dr. Dominic O’Hooley To Be Featured In Upcoming Television Series

The Dental Clinic director, Dr. Dominic O’Hooley, has been announced as the featured celebrity dentist on the upcoming miniseries, Lorraine Kelly’s Big Slim: The Chawner Challenge.

Airing in January 2010, the new 6-part series follows two-time X Factor reject Emma Chawner and her family as they try to slim down.

Emma Chawner first caught the nation’s attention when she appeared on the X Factor in 2007 in a meringue dress, singing Celine Dion’s My Heart Will Go On. The 19-year old was rejected for both her look and voice by judge Simon Cowell.

Chawner returned two years later with her sister Samantha, 21, only to be rejected again.

Beyond her multiple appearances on the X Factor, Chawner and her family have also gained publicity for other reasons – weighing in at a combined total of 83 stones, the unemployed family has been claiming £22,500 in benefits, according to The Daily Mail.

The upcoming TV series, filmed over a period of five months, tracks the family as they undergo the ultimate makeover. From a diet and fitness regime, to close work with nutritionists, health and fitness experts, and life coaches, the entire programme is designed to provide the family with the opportunity to really change their lifestyle and outlook.

“We’ve designed a format that allows them to meet some of the best experts in the country to give them an opportunity to really change the way they live and how they feel about themselves, whilst providing some excellent entertainment in the process,” Paul Stead, executive producer for Daisybeck Productions, said, in an interview with Broadcast.

One of these experts appearing in the series is dentist Dr. O’Hooley who treated both Emma and her mother, Audrey, at The Dental Clinic in Leeds.

O’Hooley commented on the significance of dental treatments in such all-encompassing makeovers.

“A great smile can go a long way in providing someone with a real sense of confidence,” O’Hooley said. “It can affect the way that you feel about yourself, as well as the way that others perceive and respond to you.”

Though O’Hooley declined comment as to exactly what treatments Emma and Audrey received, he noted that he was happy to contribute to their makeovers.

“I think both Emma and Audrey are very happy with their new smiles, and I was glad to be able to provide them with something that can really contribute to their transformations,” he said.

The Dental Clinic is the largest private provider of dental services in the UK, offering services ranging from general dentistry, to teeth whitening and cosmetic dentistry.
