In order to combat the epidemic that is periodontal disease, Dr. Gruber set forth to create a toothbrush for receding gums, which lead to the invention of the PeriClean, a specialized toothbrush for gum recession.
The PeriClean is the first redesign of the conventional toothbrush in approximately 80 years, and is the first toothbrush for gum recession. In noting that nylon bristles on traditional toothbrushes was the primary cause for receding gums in many of his patients, he decided to replace the nylon bristles with high-tech rubber bristles. The revolutionary and patented design of the PeriClean toothbrush safely whisks plaque and other debris from the teeth without causing damage to the gums. The PeriClean toothbrush has proven to be effective for countless patients, stopping gum recession in its tracks and helping to curtail the development of periodontal disease.
