What is an ORAL-X system?

Does oral care light therapy work?

People susceptible to gum disease, bad breath, or tooth infection can benefit significantly from Blue light therapy. At least 16 clinical and scientific studies show that BLUE light kills harmful bacteria.


Why BLUE light?


Blue light targets the strains of bacteria that can lead to gum tissue deterioration, tooth decay, and bad breath. It also can travel easily through enamel - gently breaking up stains even under the surface of your teeth.



How often should I use the ORAL-X?


Daily use of 10-minute sessions is recommended. Studies have shown that exposure to blue light kills bacteria within 15 to 60 seconds, thus promoting gum healing.


What wavelength is the ORAL-X Blue light?


  • The ORAL-X-BLU has 42 medical-grade LEDs with a BLUE light frequency of 480 to 520nm. Science shows that wavelengths of 440nm to 550nm are the most effective for destroying harmful oral bacteria and reducing the causes of bad breath.
