Procter & Gamble Invents Device For Cleaning Oral Care Products And Tools

June 8, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
Procter & Gamble Co. received a patent for an electrical device designed to clean oral care devices, including mouth guards, artificial teeth and removable braces, retainers, and anti-snoring mouthpieces. Invented by company scientists Mario Elmen Tremblay, Alan David Willey, Luisa Navarro Cerda, and Alexander Doll, the device is likely to be marketed by P&G's Oral-B division. Powered by a wall outlet or ordinary batteries, the device includes an electrical current supply and an electrolytic cell to generate chlorine dioxide gas. According to P&G, there is a need for the device because of the problem of residue buildup on dental appliances, such as dentures, orthodontic bridges, and retainers.
