STAMFORD, United States –The American Dental Association (ADA) has awarded its ADA Seal of Acceptance to Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 Plaque Control, an innovation from the power toothbrush brand most often recommended by U.S. Dental Professionals.
The ADA Council on Scientific Affairs’ acceptance of Philips Sonicare ProtectiveClean 4100 Plaque Control is based on its finding that the power toothbrush is safe and has shown efficacy in removing plaque and helping to prevent and reduce gingivitis, when used as directed.
To earn the Seal of Acceptance, the manufacturer, Philips Personal Health, was subjected to ADA laboratory tests and had to meet ADA and American National Standards Institute- approved dental standards. The company also submitted studies proving clinical safety and efficacy. Philips Sonicare Protective Clean 4100 Plaque Control Toothbrush was submitted for consideration as it is a contemporary innovation within the Sonicare portfolio.
“The ADA’s validation demonstrates the level of care that Philips Sonicare power toothbrushes provide,” said Alexander Harris, Senior Marketing Director, Philips Oral Healthcare. “We feel that the ADA Seal formalizes the relationship between the two clinically- dedicated oral healthcare organizations and are we proud to have received this honor.”
