Proclaim develops a 3D-printed mouthpiece for oral hygiene

The company Proclaim has introduced the Custom-Jet Oral Health System. According to the manufacturer, the system removes potentially life-threatening bacteria from the mouth, along with plaque, food and other debris. The mouthpiece is customized using 3D printing.

According to Proclaim, the system is particularly effective against the bacterium P. gingivalis, which is found in almost every mouth and can cause various systemic diseases. Oral care is essential for overall health, as poor oral hygiene is linked to conditions such as heart disease, brain disease and digestive problems.

“If you could improve your oral health in just seconds a day, why wouldn’t you? Proper oral health has whole body systemic implications. Most people underestimate the gravity of untreated oral bacteria. Not only are oral bacteria a key contributor to gum disease, but there are direct links to serious, debilitating systemic diseases and chronic illnesses impacting the heart, brain, and digestive system. This link of oral health to overall systemic health remains unappreciated. Proclaim finally offers a custom, convenient and consistent solution,” said Jonathan Nicozisis, DMD, MS, an orthodontist of Princeton, NJ.

The heart of the system is an individual, 3D-printed mouthpiece that contains up to 60 patented water jets. These are positioned in such a way that they clean all teeth and gum lines simultaneously. Clinical studies have shown that the Proclaim system is up to 13 times more effective than conventional dental floss.

Dr. Nicozisis adds, “Getting to the root cause of these problems by eliminating harmful bacteria at the entrypoint of the body – the mouth – Proclaim’s latest innovation has the potential to improve the health of millions and become the new standard of at-home care with personalization and prevention at its core.”

“By using the latest in digital scanning, 3D printing and advanced fluid dynamics to personalize and automate the cleaning process, we can help rid your mouth of harmful bacteria better than anything else while also making at-home routines easier, faster and more enjoyable,” said Heberto Calves, CEO of Proclaim Health.

An independent study conducted by an American Dental Association-certified research facility showed a significant reduction in symptoms of gum disease in participants who used the system for 30 days.

The Proclaim Custom-Jet Oral Health System is now available for $899 on the Proclaim Health website, with customers eligible for a $100 discount for a limited time. Once ordered, a quick and easy intraoral scan is performed at a Proclaim partner dentist, which is used to create the custom mouthpiece. Orders are delivered on an ongoing basis.
