RANCHO MIRAGE, CA, January 16, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Weldental LLC, an innovative provider of oral health products, announced the issue by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office on August 8, 2017 of a new patent covering the company's WELTIP water flosser delivery system.
The new patent, US 9,365,616, on an invention by Weldental's collaborators, Ron Welch and Dave Roberts, is entitled "WATER FLOSSER TIP HAVING A CONTAINER FOR TREATMENT TABLETS".
WELTIP is designed to deliver Xylitol rich toothpaste to the gum pockets at a safe, gentle pressure level. Other water flossing systems use high pressure methods in an attempt to dislodge plaque. With the addition of Xylitol and other natural ingredients to the water flow, plaque bacteria is minimized.
About Gum Disease
A diet with excess sugar consumption has led to 85% of adults have gum disease in the US. The main cause is a harmful bacteria, Streptococcus Mutans, that thrives on sugar. Xylitol is a naturally occuring sweetner that is almost identical to sugar, except it is missing one carbon molecule. When Xylitol is introduced to this harmful bacteria it absorbs it but is unable to metabolize it and starves. There are numerous studies proving the benefits of adding Xylitol to your oral health regime.
Addressing this bacteria is easy on the surface of your teeth and gums. Up to now there has not been a method to deliver Xylitol safely into your gum pockets, where this harmful bacteria thrive. WELTIP when used with 60% Xylitol WELTAB toothpaste tablets accomplishes this is. Compliance is greater than string flossing as users enjoy the ease and six flavors of WELTABs that are available.
