POH - Personal Oral Hygiene # 1 [Toothbrush]
EVERYTHING YOU NEED IN A TOOTHBRUSH, AND NOTHING YOU DON'T!
HERE IS WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT POH TOOTHBRUSHES
POH toothbrushes are unique because in manufacturing, POH carefully rounds and polishes the very tip of each bristle to make it smooth. Unpolished nylon bristles will cause soft tissue damage and even abrasion of enamel.
Nylon is tough stuff. If the bristles on a toothbrush are not end rounded and polished, it is possible that they can do damage. That is why we take extra care to polish the tips. You can look at your current toothbrush, see for yourself if they are polished or not.
A NOTE ON THE OVERALL SIZE OF POH TOOTHBRUSHES
The commercial market toothbrushes available today are typically longer, wider & heavier than POH toothbrushes. POH relies on Dr. Bass' research that this type of toothbrush imparts too much leverage (possibly damaging the delicate gum tissue) & limits the dexterity required for effective cleaning of the teeth using the Bass Method of personal oral hygiene.
-The size, shape and mass of our handles is optimized for gentle & precise control.
-The length & diameter of our bristles are designed to be effective in cleaning the gingival crevice & the pits & fissures of a tooth.
-The POH toothbrush is designed for fingertip control & sensitivity.
