What is an Ionic Toothbrush?
Plaque is often reserved for removal by the dentist, but you can now use an ionic toothbrush at home which can break the ionic bond between teeth and plaque, leaving teeth less prone to decay and gum disease. When you brush, the ionic toothbrush reverses the polarity and makes the teeth let go of plaque, similar to removing a magnet.
Here's how it works: 'opposite polarity' removes plaque from teeth by breaking the ionic bond between teeth and plaque. A 2003 study conducted by Cochrane Oral Health Group found that, "Brushes that worked with a rotation oscillation action removed more plaque and reduced gingivitis more effectively than manual toothbrushes in the short and long term".
Why you should swap to an ionic toothbrush?
Plaque (tons of invisible germs) attaches to the teeth via an electrostatic bond and friction and simply brushing alone can't break this bond. Dr Tung's Ionic Toothbrush has been clinically proven to remove up to 48% more plaque than a manual toothbrush. This is significantly more than the Cochrane Study shows for the best power brush!
Your effective teeth-cleaning regime
You can do so much for the health of your teeth and mouth than simply brushing twice a day. Begin by cleaning your tongue with your tongue cleaner, then brush your teeth normally. Oil pulling, the practice of swishing and 'chewing' oil to clean and detoxify comes next (some prefer to do it before brushing), then floss. You'll definitely notice the difference with smoother and more defined feeling and looking teeth.
Here's what to use for ultimate dental hygiene:
Dr Tung's Ionic Toothbrush
Dr Tung's Ionic Toothbrush has harnessed dental principles to create an ionic toothbrush to minimise plaque and improve gingivitis. This toothbrush is activated by placing your wet thumb onto the metal spot. Brush as normal to enjoy super clean smile! The brush power source lasts approximately two years, and doesn't require charging or batteries, which makes it so environmentally friendly. The heads only need to be replaced every three to four months.
Dr Tung's Oil Pulling Concentrate
Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurveda practice which is praised for improving your overall oral health. The Dr Tung's Oil Pulling Concentrate formula is made from 24 herbs and botanicals in a Sesame Seed Oil base. Integrated into your teeth-cleaning routine, it can strengthen the gums and improve oral health, lessening mouth dryness and detoxifying and conditioning the mouth.
