New Clinical Trial Shows PeriClean Ultra Soft Toothbrush Can Reduce the Risk of Gum Recession

Researchers from the College of Dental Medicine at Western University of Health Sciences recently published the results of a year-long study comparing the efficacy of the PeriClean Ultra Soft Toothbrush against a traditional soft nylon-bristle toothbrush. After 12 months of evaluating subjects with gingival recession, ranging in age from 18 to 80, the researchers concluded the PeriClean Ultra Soft Toothbrush did reduce the risk of gum recession.

Among the findings:

  • Nylon bristles (whether soft, medium or hard), found in most traditional toothbrushes, produced the most gingival damage.
  • Subjects who used the PeriClean had “much less” toothbrush damage than those using traditional nylon-bristle toothbrushes.
  • Traditional nylon-bristle toothbrushes are more likely to damage and abrade gum tissue and contribute to connective tissue loss that leads to gum recession.
  • A bristle-less brush is more suitable in preventing additional gum recession in patients with a history of aggressive tooth brushing.
