Is chronic pain ruining your day?

August 23, 2015

You’re not alone-almost two thirds of dentists retire early because of neck and lower back pain, and scores of others throw in the towel due to chronic shoulder, upper back, hand, arm, and leg pain.

The proprietary-technology ultra-soft brushes are for patients with gum disease or sensitive gums.

O'Nano Oral Solutions released its advanced technology toothbrushes at the California Dental Association "CDA Presents" event in San Francisco. The new ultra-soft toothbrushes are for patients with gum disease or sensitive gums. 

"The design of the nylon toothbrush has remained virtually unchanged for more than 70 years," said Cindy Yu, president of O'Nano Solutions. "Our vision is to reinvent past toothbrush designs using advanced technology and materials to bring a better toothbrush to the world. Because gum disease is epidemic, we wanted to focus our first designs on care for this population."

Proprietary technology reportedly allows O'Nano to design and form each individual bristle to its exact specifications, opening up new possibilities for future toothbrushes to make an even bigger contribution to maintaining oral health.

"When you can design each individual bristle to your specifications, it opens up so many possibilities for the future," said Company Founder Jason Zhu, Phd. "Can we improve plaque removal and protect gums and teeth with different bristle shapes, textures and materials Can we design the bristles to deliver antimicrobials during brushing? There are so many possibilities that open up when you move beyond the nylon bristle."

During CDA 2015, O'Nano demonstrated its ultra-soft toothbrushes for patients who need special care, including patients with sensitive gums, periodontal patients, post-surgical or post-implant patients, prosthodontic patients, immunocompromised patients, orthodontic patients and seniors.
