Evaluation of Ultrasound as a Means to Remove Streptococcus mutans Biofilm
An in-vitro study was to evaluate the ability of Ultreo’s combined sonic and ultrasound processes to remove S. mutans biofilm. Ultreo was shown to remove significantly more S. mutans from HA discs without bristle contact than other power brushes.

Efficacy of Ultreo in Dental Plaque Removal
An in-vivo study to evaluate the plaque removal efficacy of Ultreo after 1 and 2 minutes of brushing. Ultreo was shown to remove up to 95% of plaque from hard-to-reach interproximal areas during the first minute of brushing.

Efficacy and Safety of Ultreo in a Population with Mild to Moderate Gingivitis
An in-vivo study to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Ultreo over a 30-day period in a population with mild to moderate gingivitis. Ultreo was shown to reduce gingivitis in 30 days.

Assessing the Ability of Ultreo to Remove Extrinsic Surface Stain from the Teeth
An in-vivo study to assess the ability of Ultreo to reduce extrinsic stains on the surface of teeth after 2 and 4 weeks of use. Ultreo effectively reduced extrinsic stain from baseline after 2 and 4 weeks of use.

Comparison of the Ultreo to a Manual Toothbrush and Floss in Ability to Remove
Dental Plaque
An in-vivo pilot study to evaluate interproximal plaque removal efficacy and overall safety of Ultreo compared to a manual toothbrush and floss. Ultreo without the use of dental floss tended to maintain lower interproximal plaque scores over time than the manual toothbrush with floss.

Case Study – Evaluation of Probing Depth and Bleeding in an In-Office Setting
A case study to investigate safety, probing depths and bleeding on probing after using Ultreo over a three-month period in an in-office setting. In sites with an initial probing depth of 4mm or greater, an average 21% reduction in probing depth and an average 73% reduction in bleeding were observed during this 12-week case study.

Toothbrush-Induced In Vitro Wear of Class V Restorative Materials
An in-vitro study to compare Ultreo to two controls after a simulated 1-year typical brushing period with respect to wear/damage to the natural tooth surfaces, cements and restorative materials, and loss/damage to marginal integrity or cement in Class V fillings prepared at the cemento-enamel junction. Ultreo was found to be safe on natural tooth surfaces and restorative materials.

Evaluation of the Safety of Sonic and Ultrasound Processes
An in-vitro study to evaluate the safety of Ultreo’s sonic and ultrasound processes using in vitro models of soft tissue. The sonic and ultrasound processes as found in Ultreo exhibited no adverse effects compared to controls.

Evaluation of Orthodontic Bracket and Crown Retention after Extended Brushing
An in-vitro study to compare the Ultreo to two controls (a manual and a power toothbrush) after a simulated 2-year typical brushing period with respect to retention force of orthodontic brackets and crowns.None of the treatments was found to significantly affect the retention force of orthodontic brackets or crowns.
