Yes, everything is still on track, and we were able to gather all delivery dates for all countries you have pre-ordered from! Please have a look at the following chart for specific delivery dates:


As we have told you in a previous update, we are in constant exchange with FDA, the U.S. Federal Food and Drug Administration, to ensure compliance with all applicable laws and regulations. Earlier this year, we’ve asked them to tell us what laws and regulations apply to our innovative product, as new products often don’t fall under pre-existing categories of law. Since then, we worked closely together, in order to achieve our goal of producing a device, that complies with all regulations and requirements. Several days ago we got our final statement and start-signal from the FDA, which means that we can move forward with timely US deliveries as previously anticipated and communicated.

Many patients took part in our dental studies, which took place on 3 different dates with a minimum interval of 24 hours. The tests were performed and evaluated by independent dentists. Amabrush was tested simultaneously with two different institutions and two different sets of patients.  

The TQHPI (Turesky modified Quigley Hein Plaque Index) which we used as the method determines how much plaque was present on the teeth - the lower the value, the less plaque on the teeth.

Test Procedure

We compared the Amabrush with a manual toothbrush in the first studies. This is the common way to evaluate toothbrushes. The next step will be to compare Amabrush with other power and electric toothbrushes.

1.) 24 hours before the test, participants were not allowed to brush their teeth. For the plaque test, the patients chewed plaque disclosing tablets so that the dentist could then determine the initial plaque values (tablet is used to make plaque visible).

2.) Patients had to brush their teeth with a regular manual toothbrush for at least two minutes. The remaining plaque values were determined afterwards.

3.) The same process was repeated for the second appointment one week later, but this time with using the Amabrush instead of the manual toothbrush. Teeth were cleaned for just 10 seconds and the dentist determined the plaque values again.

Results

The plaque index decreased statistically significant and there was no statistically significant difference between Amabrush (with 10 seconds brushing time) compared to a regular manual toothbrush.

These results make us truly proud and show us that hard work, clever engineering and patience pays off for all of us. We hope that you also like those results, which we would have never reached without your support, help, and feedback!

Our next goal is to publish those studies on our channels and on professional journals, as well as redoing those studies with comparisons between Amabrush and electric toothbrushes.

Thank you again for reading our updates and your participation. We really enjoy all your comments, feedback and support, and are always endeavored to answer all your requests in a timely manner!  

Best, Your Amabrush Team :)

      Her in Germany I received the basic set today and I hope I will get the rest soon.

      It is well packaged, but it would be better to avoid this plastic molded parts.

      A first test showed that there is some cleaning effect, but far from being equal to a regular electric tooth brush like Philips Sonic Care.

    4. John Desilets on

      Any update on the shipping? It looks like it was supposed to have started about 8 weeks ago, but I haven't heard any updates. When should we expect to hear something?

    5. Cathrine Levan on

      I have not received my Amabrush.... It says it would be delivered to Canada in October. Please let me know when I can expect you to deliver as you promised.

      Sorry dear Amabrush to bother you. You received more than EUR 3.000.000,00 by Kickstarter members. They believed in you and your project (like me) and its really sad to see/read that you lied directly.. You wrote "Yeah delivery started" thats a Lie... Nobody received ans packages at all.... 2 weeks later... Its really sad that you show no respect to your coustomers.... Thats a really bad beginning for your busniess...

      How hard is it to just give an update. Most people would have been happy just to know what’s going on.
      Hope the products better than the communication because so far this company sucks.

      Delivery has started (earliest orders first).
      In the following weeks, we will provide exact delivery times.
      If you pre-order now, you will still benefit from our EXCLUSIVE PRE-ORDER PRICE.

      So just need to wait the email with the shipping track code. I'm from Chile, you understand my delivery started yesterday, but still waiting the email.

      Another unhappy customer. I can relate to any delay's, when you are notified. This update says that the DELIVERY date is september 25th, but a day later we got : No Amabrush, No tracking number, No information at all. Please do not let us in the dark!

      Amabrush, making plaque... eh money disappear since 2017

      Just a few days to wait until the regular update and the latest excuse why it hasn't been shipped.

      Anyone here still believes they will receive anything?

      I have kissed my money goodbye for sure.

    28. Daniel van der Aar on

      @Kevin & Christopher, this what they said in the update before this one so i expect tommorow any communication from the transport company

      Shipping Information
      Shipping will start on September 25th.
      Backers in the EU will be the first to receive their unit. Depending on your location, the delivery time is between 2-5 days. Shipping to the US will take longer since we’re waiting for a confirmation from the FDA. We expect to get the confirmation in August and - if everything goes according to plan - we will start delivering to the US in calendar week 42. More

      I'm confused. I received no tracking number as of today, yet it should be delivered tomorrow.
      Welp, let's just hope they did not send out tracking numbers at all.

      @Marlon Brown You are incredibly wrong, the Otobrush is literally a plastic knockoff that used old Amabrush designs and even pictures from their kickstarter page. The otobrush is garbage and so is your comment.

      Had almost given up on this product ever eventuating so was delighted to not only receive an email reply within minutes, but more importantly, a delivery date scheduled in a weeks time here in Australia. Not about to hold me breathe but signs of the excitement returning that existed many moons ago when first pledged!! C'mon Amabrush :)
      Any clarification on Otobrush and the seemingly uncanny resemblance?...

    35. Erik H on

      Delivery date; surely you mean shipping date right? Or else it should be delivered next week, and I don't see that happening. Even shipping date is not something I would believe, if it even ships at all.

      Otobrush IS the same product with the same accessories. I think “amabrush” will not deliver and we will just have to eat this product. No more backing from me. Unfortunately after you are burned you learn.

      Why would you use a specific date on all except one region and not state a ‘week commencing’ or 2nd week of a month or more specific?

      I am really excited to recieve this product! You guys have had to jump more hurdles than anticipated. Thanks for all your info! I really hope I can get the same clean in 10 sec as 3 mins with a manual. As a dental hygienist, I'm so curious on how well it works for me. If good, I would love to become an advocate and sell this protect. We will see how it goes! I can see it being super key for people with dexterity issues. Thank you for pushing forward.

      Hello,
      Just noticing that New Zealand isn’t shown on the delivery map, is it safe to say this will be around the same time as Australia? I ordered mine from here close to a year ago. Thanks.
