To determine the effectiveness of Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion® in reducing plaque and the clinical signs of inflammation as compared to Sonicare® DiamondClean.
This is a randomized, controlled, parallel clinical trial. Thirty five subjects who met the criteria were enrolled into each group. One group used Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion®, brushing for two minutes and flossing for one minute, and one group used Sonicare® DiamondClean electric toothbrush with DiamondClean Brush Head. Gum Health was measured using bleeding on probing (BOP) and the Modified Gingival Index (MGI) at baseline, two weeks, and four weeks. Plaque was evaluated by the Rustogi Modified Navy Plaque Index (RMNPI). Scores were measured at baseline, two weeks, and four weeks. All subjects were provided written and verbal instructions.
Both Sonic-Fusion® and Sonicare®DiamondClean showed a significant reduction in BOP and MGI from baseline to four weeks (p<0.001). The Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion® group was significantly more effective than Sonicare® DiamondClean for all clinical parameters, improving BPO by 38%, MGI by 38%, and RMNPI by 36%.
This study demonstrates that the Waterpik® Sonic-Fusion® is significantly more effective than Sonicare® DiamondClean for improving oral health.
