SONIC TECHNOLOGY FOR EFFECTIVE BRUSHING

Solutions

02 Feb 2017

DENTAID, an expert oral health laboratory and market leader for hand-held brushes sold in pharmacies under the VITIS® brand, presents the all new VITIS® sonic, the next generation state-of-the-art electric toothbrush with two models: the S10 and the S20.

FEATURES

The new VITIS® sonic range combines the distinctive characteristics of VITIS® manual toothbrushes, together with innovative sonic technology, obtaining a superior quality brush.

VITIS® brushes have always been distinguished by their diamond-shaped head with high quality Tynex® filaments. VITIS® sonic retains these features in an access size (small) head for easily reaching to the rear of the mouth. It is also available in two filament strengths: medium, for normal brushing, and gingival, with soft filaments for more gentle brushing.

The handle of both models is ergonomic and has an anti-slip grip and a quadrant timer. Every 30 seconds, the brush stops momentarily to indicate that it is necessary to move on to the next quadrant, and after two minutes, it stops completely to indicate that the recommended minimum brushing time (2 minutes, 30 seconds per quadrant) has been completed, which helps improve usersbrushing performance.

The main difference between the two models lies in the brushing modes. The S10 model offers a brushing mode that has a filament vibration of 31,000 strokes per minute. As for the model S20, there are three modes of brushing available: normal, with 31,000 strokes per minute, for effective brushing while caring for teeth and gums; precision, where the filaments vibrate at 40,000 strokes per minute, obtaining greater accuracy for deep-clean brushing, and massage, where vibration varies between 31,000 and 40,000 strokes per minute, for better cleaning of the gingival margin.

The S20 also has a light indicating the battery level of the brush, while the S10 has a charging indicator light. The battery is long-lasting and a single charge can last for several weeks.

EFFICACY

The effectiveness of the VITIS® sonic brush has been evaluated in a dentist-controlled efficacy test conducted on people who normally use a manual brush.

At the end of the study, it was clear that gingival inflammation had dropped by 58% after 10 days of use and by 69% after 21 days.

Regarding plaque index, a reduction of 20 percentage points was observed after 10 days and of 24 percentage points after 21 days, meaning a reduction in the plaque index of 39% compared to the initial situation for both the full mouth and for the interproximal areas.

Furthermore, a study was carried out on 535 users over at least one month, validating the suitability of VITIS® sonic brushes in terms of design, usability and results after brushing, with the following outcomes:

  • 90% consider that the VITIS® sonic brush is gentle on the gums.
  • 96% perceive it as a quality brush.
  • 89% of users say results are visible.
  • 9 out of 10 users who tried the brush recommend it.

In short, besides being considered an optimal brush by the users, the VITIS® sonic brush has been observed to enhance gingival health and improve plaque index in as little as 10 days.
