AIM Powered or manual toothbrushes are daily-used instrument in the Western area for the control and removal of bacterial biofilm. Among powered-toothbrushes, sonic technology has shown to produce fluid turbulent activity that might assist in plaque removal; however, limited knowledge is available in-vivo. The objectives of this study were to compare the plaque removal efficacy of two different toothbrushes in a population not familiar with sonic technology, and to collect and analyse data… Expand

A 3 months clinical evaluation comparing two professional bleaching systems of 25% and 40% hydrogen peroxide and extended treatment outcome using a power versus a manual toothbrush
TLDR
The outcomes confirm the bleaching efficacy advantage of a lower H2 O2 dose-LED accelerated professional tooth bleaching system, compared to a higher-dose H2O2 approach and provide evidence that both professional products are safe for use. Expand
Exploring Mechanisms of Biofilm Removal
TLDR
These studies demonstrate that test agent desiccant effect alone causes some disruption of dental biofilm, and additional dynamic rinsing is needed to achieve complete removal of dentalBiofilm. Expand

TLDR
No definitive conclusions can be stated regarding the superiority of one mode of powered toothbrush over any other due to the dearth of trials assessing the same mode of action, but further trials of good quality are required to establish if any mode ofaction has superiority over the other modes of action for powered toothbrushes.
