CTT hears from Richard Corline, the CEO of Light-X creator of the Oral X, a device that has been designed to improve the oral health of patients suffering from gum disease and sensitive teeth from the comfort of their home.
The Oral X is a mouth tray that can be used remotely from the sofa, your bedroom, or where ever you might wish. When connected to the controller (which is rechargeable) it emits ‘blue’ light.
This blue light fights against gum disease by destroying the harmful bacteria which lives in your mouth - this, in turn, enables the good bacteria to thrive.
Oral X offers its users a safe, non-invasive, drug-free solution for the treatment of bad breath, sensitive teeth, and gum disease.
How long should I use the Oral X to see results?
It is suggested to use the device on a daily basis for a minimum of 5 minutes, the device has a timer which you can set for 5, 10, or 15 minutes.
Can anybody use the Oral X?
There are not any contraindications that we know of for using blue light therapy with this device for oral care.
How much is an Oral X device?
The Oral X will currently cost under £100. This includes a 12-month warranty.
How did solving oral health problems by using blue light therapy come about?
Like many scientific breakthroughs, the discovery of the effect of blue light in the oral cavity came by accident.
Scientists at Harvard Medical School were researching the effects of blue light on various teeth whitening chemicals in the mouth. To their surprise, they found the light was destroying harmful bacteria, but leaving helpful bacteria intact.
Is there scientific evidence to these claims?
The results of the Harvard discovery have been published in numerous scientific journals. These include The New Scientist, Harvard Magazine, NCBI, and also Dentistry (USA).
Could Oral X replace the toothbrush?
No, although we believe that the Oral X will become a significant device to improve oral health, it will not replace brushing our teeth or flossing.
WTOC, a Fox TV station in the USA quoted: ‘There’s no way to tell how long it will take the scientists to develop a device for use in the home. They estimate it will be just a few years. And then it’ll start appearing in bathrooms across America – right next to the battery-operated toothbrushes and mouthwash.’
We bring you, Oral X, today. The first company to harness blue light in an oral device for personal home use.
