Major gingivitis research in Europe reveals a grim fact: brushing your teeth is not enough – Finnish innovation treats and prevents periodontitis efficiently

Author(s): Dental News

The newly published breakthrough study shows that eliminating the bacteria contained in dental plaque should be as vital a part of dental hygiene as brushing your teeth and flossing.  

HELSINKI, Finland (November 4, 2022) Europe’s largest periodontitis study is currently being carried out at Finland’s Metropolia University of Applied Sciences. The interim results of the three-year study indicate that using the Lumoral device created by Finnish health tech company Koite Health reduces gingivitis and improves dental hygiene significantly. Lumoral utilizes an efficient antibacterial method developed by Finnish researchers that eliminates disease-causing bacteria from dental plaque.  

Periodontitis, a chronic infection caused by bacteria, is a disease that affects as many as 70% of people in Western countries. Periodontitis is the sixth most common disease in the world that can also lead to other conditions such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Because bacteria in the plaque cause 95 per cent of dental diseases, regularly eliminating dental plaque improves dental hygiene. It also prevents and treats dental and gum diseases. 

Brushing and flossing isn’t enough – more than half of the participants achieved healthy gums after only three months of antibacterial treatment  

The peer-reviewed study covering the three-month results (n=59) is now published in a special edition of Dentistry Journal. It shows that 54 percent of participants who used Lumoral were healed from gingivitis based on the BOP (Bleeding on Probing) index – this represents 2.5 times more than in the control group that didn’t use the device. In the control group, only 22 percent of participants had healthy gums after the three-month study period. 
The participants using Lumoral had a significantly lower amount of plaque build-up, whereas the control group still had the same amount of plaque left in their mouth.  

”You can only remove half of the plaque by brushing your teeth – it’s no wonder cavities and gingivitis are among the most common diseases in the world. If we want to improve the results of dental care treatments....READ MORE
