Vumblr: World's First Vacuum-Controlled Gum Therapy

$58,602

478


You massage all your body to relieve your fatigue, but what about gums? Now, relax your gums that protect your teeth. 

Gum care is as important as tooth brushing. Catch both of them with additional teeth whitening.

Vumblr is world’s first Vacuum Gum Stimulator that massages entire gums at once with teeth cleaning and whitening effect. 

Vumblr Features:

  • Vacuum Control Technology 
  • Ergonomic Mouthpiece 
  • Foam toothpaste with Hydroxyapatite  

Don't worry about choking or gagging, the mouthpiece is made with soft silicone for medical use. 

Gingivitis and periodontal disease, which are the second most common disease after cold, can be prevented sufficiently through simple gum massage. 

Gum massages provide a couple of benefits that make gum disease treatment more effective.

Massaging your oral soft tissue increases blood flow to the area, allowing that tissue to repair itself more effectively. As a result, your gums will be less susceptible to the harmful effects of gingivitis and periodontitis.


Periodontal disease (periodontitis) has long been known as the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. But the damage isn’t confined to the mouth. Gum disease has also been associated with an increased risk of serious degenerative diseases.

Over the years, people with perio-dontal disease have been found to be at higher risk for cardiovascular dis-ease, diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, pregnancy complications, and dementia. 

Moreover, the association probably works both ways. For example, diabetes research has determined that successfully treating periodontitis reduces the severity of diabetes and vice versa. 


In recognition of its potentials from the experts, Vumblr is confirmed to participate in following international exhibitions. Take the opportunity to purchase products recognized by many dentists for the first time. We’re ready to meet interested buyers from all over the world and let more people know about our products.



Vumblr creates painless vacuum pressure inside the mouth using a mouthpiece with over 300 bristles to clean, whiten, and massage your teeth and gums.

You control the vacuum pressure simply with your finger. Just cover and open the air release hole to expand and contract the mouthpiece as desired for a squeaky clean mouth!



Normal Gum Stimulator VS "Vumblr"

There are 30 inter-dental spaces, which are spaces in between the teeth of upper and lower dental arch, and these spaces are critical part to gum health. 

As the mouthpiece contracts, Vumblr mouthpiece has a same effect as using 30 gum stimulators at the same time. As the number of contraction increases, the effect increases 30 times. 

Moreover, the mouthpiece not only massages the inter-dental spaces but also massages the entire gums.



Watch the power of the Vumblr in action!

1. One Size Fits All!

One size fit mouthpieceVumblr has a stretchable structure for stronger expansion and contraction.

You can choose the size of the mouthpieces if you back us with Family for 2 or Family for 4.  Vumblr basic includes one mouthpiece for Adult.


2. Flexible Structure for Dynamic Movement 

The mouthpiece delivers an invigorating and evenly distributed massage, increasing blood circulation which is essential for gum health. 

A thin wing structure is added to the mouthpiece to stick to the Mucogingival Junction to form vacuum pressure.


3. Specialized Cleaning Bristles 

The Vumblr brush was designed to increase the friction of the brush as much as possible and as a result scrubs the surface of the teeth to remove food debris and dental plaque. 



4. Convenient Mouthpiece Storage 

Clean, protective storage for your mouthpiece where ever you take your Vumblr. 

It can be crumpled into a smaller space thanks to its thin and elastic structure.

Vumblr's proprietary foam toothpaste is infused with nano-sized cleaning particles, natural ingredients including Hydroxyapatite.  

1) Teeth cleaning - Nano-sized micro foam particles help specially designed brushes to clean the teeth. 

2) Gum Care -  Sterilization and anti-inflammatory function of natural plant material (Cnidium officinale Makino & mugwort) helps improve gum health. 

3) Teeth Whitening -  Since Hydroxyapatite , which has proven whitening effect, is included, if used continuously, it can whiten teeth without tooth hypersensitivity.  

For the perfect vacuum control and to avoid pain in the gums while vacuum pressure is established, the mouthpiece is designed to take the Mucogingival Junction into consideration and applies Neutral Zone Theory which is used in dental clinics to produce dentures and braces. 

Neutral Zone is that area where the forces of tongue pressing outward are neutralized by the forces of the cheeks and lips pressing inward.

To avoid pain in the gums while vacuum pressure is established, the mouthpiece is designed by considering the anatomic structure, the Mucogingival Junction. 


 Vumblr provides state-of-the-art teeth cleaning and gum massage effects based on AWARD-WINNING vacuum control technology.   

 A dentist with 20 years experience, Dr. Hyun found that many patients remove plaque poorly because they lack adequate manual dexterity to manipulate the toothbrush. He also found that patients suffering from systemic complications such as aspiration pneumonia or dental disease due to poor oral hygiene have higher death rates. He was determined to find a solution to this problem. So in 2014, he worked together with enthusiastic engineers and developed an oral care device that automatically cleans teeth and massages gum with an application of vacuum pressure.


Academic Activities

After completion of the final prototype, and in various academic presentations, our team was recognized by experts and dentists for the effectiveness of the Vumblr Oral Care Device.

Over the past 3 years, we have upgraded through 8 prototypes, researching, testing and refining the functionality and performance of this innovative oral care system. 


Our R&D team has spent years developing and perfecting Vumblr, finding the best materials and formulas to optimize the oral care experience. We're so confident in our products we back it with a 1-year warranty.  

We promise to deliver within four months of our campaign completion. We are confident in our team, our product, and our manufacturing schedule.

We understand that some of you may be concerned because of the non-delivery history of companies and products that have come before us on Kickstarter. Also after receiving the products, many have been disappointed by the quality of the product.
