Dental whitening is a major medical procedure that involves using a high-powered, high-tech toothbrush and brushing the toothbrush in a controlled way.
While the procedure has gained popularity over the past few decades, the effectiveness of the process has been questioned by researchers.
This is where a new study from the University of Utah and the University at Buffalo suggests that using a less invasive procedure may actually be safer.
The researchers compared the effectiveness and safety of a tooth whitening technique that involves brushing the teeth in a closed manner and a procedure that requires using a brush and a spoon to clean the tooth.
They found that the former method had lower rates of tooth decay and tooth decay-related complications than the latter method.
The study was published online today in the Journal of the American Dental Association.
The authors said they were surprised by the results, but were excited about the potential for further research into the effectiveness, safety, and effectiveness of this type of treatment.
“It was really interesting to find out that brushing with a brush is actually safer,” said Dr. Brian Loeffler, the study’s lead author and a dentist at the University College of London.
“The toothbrush was probably better at the end of the day.
It was a little bit better at helping people keep their teeth clean, but that didn’t mean that the teeth were completely clean.”
The researchers found that toothbrushes with a toothbrush can also be more effective in removing plaque, the hard, sticky material that builds up on the tooth’s surface and can prevent tooth decay.
But the researchers also found that using the toothbrush alone did not reduce the incidence of tooth loss.
“What we found was that we’re able to prevent loss of teeth without a tooth brush,” said Loeefler.
“We were able to remove a lot of plaque by using a toothbrushing technique that uses a brush to help clean teeth.
That’s really cool.”
Dr. Mark A. Buss, a dentist in New York who has been involved in the research for a number of years, said the findings are exciting.
“If you have some dental disease and you’re not getting any help from your dentist, then it’s really important that you have a dental treatment that is as safe as possible,” he said.
“I would not recommend using a low-tech method that doesn’t use a high dose of medication.”
Buss added that tooth whiteners may be the most promising dental treatment because of the high levels of salivary cholesterol in them, which can be toxic to the liver.
He said the researchers are currently testing the tooth whitener on other patients to see how effective it is in preventing plaque formation.
“There’s been a lot less interest in tooth whitings, and there’s a lot more interest in the dental health of patients, but it’s still a very important area of research,” he added.
“I think this study is really exciting, because we have been using a lot higher-tech tools for years and years and we haven’t found any evidence of significant benefit.”
