HOW ORALUCENT WORKS

Why use red and blue light in a toothbrush?

There are numerous scientific studies showing that certain wavelengths of visible blue light are effective at accelerating whitening as well as reducing the pathogenic bacteria associated with common dental problems. Red light has been shown to increase circulation, reduce inflammation, and promote healing in the body. Therapeutic light delivered through a toothbrush head is able to travel into tight spaces, between teeth and even under the gum line, delivering more benefits than traditional toothbrushes. See our technology page for more details.
