“At-Home Care for Subjects With Periodontitis”
The effect of use of powered toothbrushing in patients exhibiting periodontal inflammation has been observed repeatedly in clinical studies conducted over a 20+ year period. Whether these subjects also had periodontitis, or not, was not a collected data metric as it was outside the scope of the Investigation. This study, therefore, will specifically include and document that a subject exhibits periodontitis upon study entry, and measure the ensuing response following professional treatment of scaling and root planning, followed by home use of the assigned study products (powered or manual toothbrushing).
