Abstract

Purpose: Recently, a new power toothbrush has been marketed with a design that fundamentally differs from other marketed power toothbrushes, in that it incorporates a round oscillating head, in conjunction with fixed bristles. The objective of this study was to compare the plaque removal efficacy of a control manual toothbrush (Colgate Navigator) to this experimental power toothbrush (Crest SpinBrush) following a single use. Materials and Methods: This study was a randomized, controlled, exarniner-blind, 4-period crossover design which examined plaque removal with the two toothbrushes following a single use in 40 completed subjects. Plaque was scored before and after brushing using the Turesky Modification of the Quigley-Hein Index. Results: Baseline plaque scores were 1.77 for both the experimental toothbrush and control toothbrush treatment groups. With respect to all surfaces examined, the experimental toothbrush delivered an adjusted (via analysis of covariance) mean difference between baseline and post-brushing plaque scores of 0.48 while the control toothbrush delivered an adjusted mean difference of 0.35. The experimental toothbrush removed, on average, 37.6% more plaque than the control toothbrush. These results were statistically significant (P < 0.001). With respect to buccal surfaces, the experimental toothbrush delivered an adjusted mean difference between baseline and post-brushing plaquescores of 0.54 while the control toothbrush delivered an adjusted mean difference of 0.42. This represents 27.8% more plaque removal with the experimental toothbrush compared to the control toothbrush. These results were also statistically significant (P= 0.001). Results on lingual surfaces also demonstrated statistically significantly (P < 0.001) greater plaque removal for the experimental toothbrush with an average of 53.4% more plaque removal.
