WHY THIS SYSTEM WORKS
Most people have billions of bacteria living in their mouths that are capable of attacking the teeth, gums, and supporting alveolar bone. These microscopic organisms are difficult for most people to eliminate with conventional brushing, flossing and rinsing for two key reasons: they are cloaked in protective slime and they thrive in hard to reach places. Because approximately 80% of tooth decay, gingivitis, and periodontal disease begin between the teeth, where currently available toothbrushes cannot reach and few people are able to use dental floss effectively, if at all, a better oral care system is necessary. The Whillock Oral Care System electric brush has strategically sized, shaped, and spaced bristle clusters that rotate and reciprocate independently. In addition to reaching easy to reach tooth surfaces, this bristle action drives bristle filament tips into areas that conventional toothbrushes, both manual and electric do not reach. The clusters of long narrow bristles and clusters of short wide bristles clean as a team: the short soft bristles reach the vestibular tooth surfaces and into the gingival sulcus while the long filaments enter between teeth, into concave surfaces and inflamed pockets. The individual bristle tufts each rotate in a reciprocating motion enabling the bristle filament tips to enter the gingival sulcus while following the complex gingival contours.

The strategic spacing of the bristle clusters allows each cluster to do its unique cleansing task most importantly disrupting the biofilm while delivering chemotherapeutic agents into sites where they can much more effectively destroy the bacteria. The ease and simplicity of this system consists of holding a chemotherapeutic agent in the mouth while using this brush to clean all surfaces of the teeth as well as between teeth and gums. In so doing, the protective slime is fragmented and removed and chemotherapeutic agents are propelled into the areas where they destroy bacteria most effectively.

This system dramatically enhances the effectiveness of antimicrobial agents such as mouthwashes because the bristles physically disrupt the slime that protects the bacteria. (See misconceptions/falsehoods section of website.) This system is the culmination of years of clinical practice, research, and experimentation with the wide variety of available toothbrushes and flossing aids, as well as toothpastes, mouthwashes, and antimicrobial agents. The Whillock Targeted Oral Care System – using its patented brush to deploy chemotherapeutic agents – is a new paradigm and a scientifically verified advancement in dental care.
