Corporate hype: This situation is likely a comment made from a sales rep visiting a dental office. The game here is...Sales rep from company "A" buys the hygenist's lunch and teaches them how to put down company "B." This unfortunately is the corporation trying to market products through professionals. I am often disappointed that there is rarely science to base any of these claims.

Sonicare Toothbrush: The latest study demonstrates that long-term use of Sonicare toothbrush improves periodontal health in adult periodontitis and it's very addictive. To form a habit use Sonicare toothbrush three times a day for tree weeks. Take care.
