A Dental pod is an ultrasonic denture cleaner.
An ultrasonic cleaner is a vibrating water bath.
The Dental pod uses high-frequency 42,000 Hz ultrasonic waves to vibrate a cleaning solution and produce millions of nano-scale bubbles.
The intense vibrations and millions of bubbles deep clean your dentures at a microscopic level.
Studies using microscopes to look at dentures have found that traditional methods, such as brushing, fail to remove most microorganisms and debris.
Debris and microorganisms are found in the rough surfaces of your dentures which are hard to clean with traditional methods.
The Dental pod is able to deep clean these hard-to-reach areas of your dentures.
The continued use of an ultrasonic cleaner with your dentures does not cause significant damage over time. Any wear that takes place is minor and randomly distributed across your dentures. If concerned about wear, we’d suggest cleaning your dentures individually, to reduce any potential rubbing.
Elevated temperatures can distort denture plastics.A study that looked at the effects of water temperature on soft denture linings (silicone-based, both permanent and temporary) found that water above 175F caused discoloration and surface roughness.
For the Dental pod, you only need room-temperature water to clean your dentures. As a result, you should expect no damage.
Ultrasonic cleaners generate high-frequency vibrations. Vibrations clean your dentures in two ways:
The liquid is forced against the surface of your dentures when vibrating, deep cleaning the appliance.
Tiny bubbles formed by the intense vibration of the cleaner rapidly expand and collapse, releasing a large amount of energy, continuously scouring and smashing the grime, bacteria and plaque while being non-abrasive to your dentures.
In the Dental pod, the 2nd action (called ‘cavitation’) occurs on average 4000 times per second. All surfaces and gaps of your dentures are continuously cleaned in a short but thorough cleaning cycle.
There are only 4 simple steps to clean your dentures with an ultrasonic cleaner:
Fill the Dental pod with room temperature water and plug it into a wall socket.
Drop in a sterilizing tablet to increase the cleaning effect.
Drop your dentures into the water in the Dental pod.
Your dentures must be fully submerged in the liquid to receive the full effects of ultrasonic cleaning.
Studies have shown that 5 minutes is the perfect amount of time to leave your dentures in the cleaner.
Your dentures will now be sparkling clean!
Research has found that ultrasonic denture cleaners provided better results than traditional cleaning methods including brushing and soaking with a chemical solution.
Ultrasonic and chemical cleaning are very different.
Your denture can benefit from performing both types of cleaning.
Studies have shown that using an ultrasonic cleaner with hydrogen peroxide is more effective than brushing your dentures.
With the Dental pod, we recommend using our sterilizing tablets instead of peroxides.
Studies have shown that hydrogen peroxide is a highly reactive substance which can damage oral soft tissues and hard tissues when used incorrectly. Additionally, there is some evidence that peroxides can damage ultrasonic cleaner components.
