Pilot Lite Case Study - Expert Oral Therapy at Home

Pilot Lite has harnessed a pioneering, disruptive and patented hydrodynamic technology from one of the leading global Corporates in Oral Care to develop an advanced water flosser that is twice as effective at removing plaque.

The challenge

Good oral care that goes beyond daily brushing and flossing is especially important for people with weakened immune systems or those with braces, gum disease, dental implants and sensitive teeth - yet quality options are limited. These people are equally concerned with the health of their mouth, teeth and gums as affects the way they talk, eat and present themselves to the world. But oral health is also essential to overall health; poor oral hygiene can increase the risk of other health problems including heart disease and diabetes.

Globally, dental hygiene has improved as a result of better personal care and improved toothpastes. However, despite these advances​, the prevalence of gum disease around the world remains significant - nearly half of the UK and US population has periodontitis.

Practicing good oral health by brushing twice a day, flossing and using mouthwash daily helps avoid tooth decay and gum disease.


The solution

Pilot Lite developed Smilestrong to deliver next-generation teeth cleaning and dental stain removal to consumers of all ages. The advanced oral therapy system goes beyond brushing and flossing and provides expert oral care at home that is more effective than any other commercially available devices.

The Smilestrong hydrodynamic cleaning technology directs micronized water particles and flavored cleaning fluids with fluoride at the teeth and gums through a patented nozzle design.  With a gentle burst water and air, the advanced water flosser removes plaque, biofilm, debris and surface stains in between and on the surface of teeth. And because it emits a much lower surface pressure and significantly less water than competing water flossers, Smilestrong is also pain-free and significantly less messy.

With its ergonomic design, Smilestrong is easy to use, allowing even the most difficult and sensitive areas to be gently and effectively cleaned. Smilestrong therapeutic mouthwash boosts can be added to the water flosser to treat specific dental conditions, delivering a balanced oral therapy that is recommended by dental professionals for people with braces, implants, gum disease and sensitive teeth. Combined with the mouthwash boost, the Smilestrong oral therapy system removes twice as much plaque as other devices on the market and will be available online from 2021.
