New Oral Care Device Helps Sensitive Teeth & Receding Gums
Gum recession and tooth sensitivity is a common condition - Age, hormones, gum disease, teeth grinding or overly aggressive brushing habits, are just a few of many reasons why the gums can recede over time!
Light therapy to the rescue! It is widely used to improve the condition skin, control acne breakouts and reduce pain. Now it can be used to heal gum tissues and reverse sensitive teeth
What Is Light Therapy?
LIGHT THERAPY (otherwise known as LLLT or Photo Biomodulation (PBM)) is a proven technology that has been in use by professionals for over 50 years to relieve pain, heal wounds, fight infections, rejuvenate aging skin, and treat acne. The therapy works by delivering precise doses of low-level light at specific wavelengths to improve blood flow, increase circulation, encourage cellular turnover and repair damaged tissue.
Light Therapy And Oral Care
Over time, the gums can recede or pull away from the teeth, leaving the vulnerable nerve area exposed. When this area is no longer protected by the gums and is exposed to hot and cold temperatures, it can become extremely sensitive. In some cases, gingivitus (a mild form of gum disease) can contribute to gum can become inflamed and red due to bacterial infection. This is where the gum tissue starts receding upward and away from the tooth, creating pockets where harmful bacteria can build up and cause infection and uncomfortable tooth sensitivity.
The ability of light at specific wavelengths to treat pain and repair damaged tissue in the body makes it effective in treating gum recession, sore, swollen or infected gum tissue and tooth sensitivity.
What Is The ORAL “X” 3 Care Home Light Therapy System?
This innovative device uses blue light to help reverse tooth sensitivity and improve gum health.
This new and affordable do-it-yourself option is now available to those seeking a home remedy for sensitive teeth and receding gums
Shaped like a small mouth guard, the device features 16 blue light emitting diodes designed to improve the health of your gums and teeth in as little as 5 minutes per day. The device uses cold light LED technology alongside high intensity blue light between 480-520nm through specially coated optical lenses to separate harmful UV light and infrared rays. per day. The device fits comfortably within the mouth where the healing LEDs bathe the upper and lower gums and teeth in stimulating, deep healing medical-grade light to kill bacteria, reduce redness, reverse tooth sensitivity. The Oral “X” 3 comes with a rechargeable, cold light controller with an exclusive cold light chip to maintain a constant current output voltage. The 2000mAh Li-battery provides long running time and the type-c port makes charging more convenient.
The ORAL “X” 3 Oral Care Light Therapy System is comprised of two parts including an interchangeable mouth tray which is the piece that contains the blue LEDs, and the oral care control device. The mouth tray attaches to the control device via a small cable connector. To charge the device, the mouth tray is separated from the control device and plugged into the provided power supply. The controller takes about 2-3 hours to fully charge and will last for about 50 minute The mouth tray is cleaned by running it under warm water and letting it air dry. For gum health, the device should be used for a minimum of 5 minutes per day.
1) Reduces Tooth Sensitivity
The area below your tooth enamel (dentin) is in a constant state of regeneration and can take time to repair itself. The Blue light wavelengths help decrease tooth sensitivity by speeding up this natural reparative process.
2) Prevents Gum Recession
Otherwise known as "gingivitis", an overgrowth of bad bacteria within the mouth can cause inflammation resulting in red, swollen gum tissue that has the tendency to bleed quite easily. The key to preventing the onset of gum recession is to prevent infections from occurring in the first place. Blue light in the 630 nm to 830 nm range has been proven to kill the oral bacteria that causes gum infections and cavities.
3) Kills Gum and Tooth Disease Causing Bacteria
Blue light at specific wavelengths can also help attack and kill oral bacteria responsible for the onset of gum disease. This combined treatment helps reduce harmful bacteria, increases good bacteria and maintains a clean and balanced oral environment which reduces the occurrence of infections. Because light therapy is a natural, non-invasive remedy, it is no longer necessary to use harsh chemicals or compounds to eliminate the bad bacteria in your mouth and maintain proper dental hygiene.
4) Freshens Breath
Light therapy is also a great remedy for eliminating bad breath. Blue light promotes fresher breath by killing nasty odor causing bacteria within the mouth
