TORONTO — Silk’n, a manufacturer of medical aesthetics technology for home-use, is bringing a new technology to at-home oral hygiene. First unveiled at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, ToothWave is a toothbrush that uses Radio Frequency (RF) energy. ToothWave purports to reduce tartar (calculus), prevents, and reduces gingivitis, reduces stains and improves discolouration.
Silk’n also developed an Intense Pulse Light (IPL) at-home hair removal device that permanently eradicates unwanted hair for both men and women. The company has also developed skin care technology solutions incorporating Infrared Heat, LED Red Light, and Blue Light technologies for home use.
ToothWave utilizes DentalRF® technology, a mild Radiofrequency wave of charged molecules that surrounds the surface of each tooth, providing effective oral hygiene that will not damage the enamel or gums. These charged molecules loosen the bonds between the surface of the tooth and the tartar and stains, allowing for easy removal.
“ToothWave is raising the bar for oral hygiene by reducing tartar,” says Michael Bank, President, Home Skinovations, North America. “It is the first toothbrush to utilize DentalRF®, a revolutionary technology.”
ToothWave’s RF energy streams between two electrodes, bouncing back and forth over a silicon barrier, eliminating the need for vigorous brushing. RF energy has been used in surgical and aesthetic medical applications for several decades. DentalRF® Technology is patent protected in the US, China, Europe, Japan, and Russia and is pending in several other countries including Canada.
