I am Dr. Salvatore DeRicco – a dentist, orthodontist, award-winning toothbrush inventor, and successful entrepreneur. And I have invented THE WUNDERBRUSH FOR GUMS™, which is the first brush engineered specifically for gums, and which was inspired by the estimated 90% of adults and teenagers who have gum disease – either gingivitis or periodontitis, and the many life-threatening and life-shortening diseases, which are known to be linked to gum disease.
While THE WUNDERBRUSH FOR GUMS™ was conceived of one year before the COVID-19 pandemic, the discovered link between gum disease and more severe effects of COVID-19 infection further inspired and expedited the need to produce it.
The most recent research – indicating that COVID-19 is NINE TIMES more fatal – in victims with gum disease, than in those without gum disease, validated our efforts:
I truly appreciate your considering THE WUNDERBRUSH FOR GUMS™, and I hope that you can support this brush by either purchasing one and/or sharing the website with your loved ones, friends, and colleagues, who may benefit from THE WUNDERBRUSH FOR GUMS™ – even if just to improve their breath, for when you have to meet with them!
THE WUNDERBRUSH FOR GUMS™ is 75 YEARS OVERDUE!
The need to brush not only at, but under our gumlines was determined in the 1940’s – 75 YEARS GO – shortly after World War II – by Charles C. Bass, M.D., and YES, he was not a dentist, but a physician, who had gum disease, and who wanted to avoid having to have his teeth extracted, as was done, routinely, for gum disease. And, while he developed both a toothbrush and a technique for us to attempt to brush both at and under our gumlines – “The Bass Technique™”, he refused to distribute it to anyone – including dentists, who he did not personally instruct in its method of use – perhaps due to its complexity of use. And nobody has developed a more predictably effective, efficient, and user-friendly brush – for gums, since then, which is why the incidence of gum disease is STILL outrageously high – at 90% of all adults and teens!…
BAD BREATH? Check your gums.
…Recognizing this cavernous void, in proper daily oral hygiene, I – as a Dental Specialist and an Award-Winning toothbrush inventor, have picked up where Dr. Bass left off, by establishing “The PERFECTED Bass Technique™”, (a.k.a. “The SIMPLIFIED Bass Technique™”), by simplifying and foolproofing your ability to brush at and under your gumlines, especially because we have learned – much more recently, that gum disease not only results in the obvious problems, including:
– BAD BREATH (often due to gum disease)
– GUM RECESSION (the underlying bone degenerates and is lost and the gums follow)
– TOOTH and IMPLANT LOSS (when too much supporting bone is lost and mobility ensues)…
Gum disease provides a gateway into our bloodstreams for pathological bacteria.
…but even more importantly, and due to gum disease being a chronic inflammatory infection, which enables pathologic oral bacteria to enter our bloodstreams, gum disease is also linked to the following Life-Shortening Diseases and Life-Threatening Diseases:
– Heart disease
– Liver, Lung, and Kidney Diseases
– Pregnancy Diseases
– Alzheimer’s Disease
– COVID-19 coronavirus infection (increased severity*)
