About this project
Once in a lifetime, a product is invented that is such a simple solution to such a complex problem.
I've been a dentist for over 40 years, and research can tell you that everyone has a build up of smelly germs BETWEEN their teeth that can cause gum disease, bad breath and can even lead to tooth loss and an increased risk of heart attacks, diabetes, and other horrible diseases.
Periotwist is a reusable anti-bacterial inter-dental cleaner that not only cleans but also can medicate the most neglected yet most important space in your mouth – between your teeth!
Twist it out
World Class Design
Gently insert the PerioTwist between your teeth. Then push/pull or Twist!
Forget floss and wire brushes that tear, scratch or break
There's a reason your dentist keeps telling you to floss - it's important! But there's also a reason no one ever does it!
Flossing is often difficult, time-consuming and occasionally painful. Alternatives like wires and brushes break, scratch and damage your teeth, and often result in expensive dental work. PerioTwist is designed to fit between all your teeth – no matter how large or small the space, or how large or small your hands are. Use it anytime, anywhere and in less time that the alternatives.
How it works - Just like a "Turbo Toothpick"
Research has conclusively established that the inter-dental area is the area of the mouth that is the most prone to gum disease, cavities, and bad breath. and yet this area is the most neglected because most current cleaning devices are ineffective, difficult to use, and have many other disadvantages causing non-compliance.
PerioTwist is super simple to use. Just insert it between your teeth and twist or push/pull it and let the magic of its design take care of the rest. Alternatively, you could also dip it into any paste (like toothpaste, liquid or gel for addition benefits) and twist it clockwise as you withdraw it leaving toothpaste or other medicaments to keep on treating.
Why We're Here
We need your support to get as many advance orders as possible to keep the cost of PerioTwist (and your dental bills) low.

Risks and challenges
We feel we've derisked our crowdfunding campaign to the best of our ability. We've tested and sourced the very best local manufacturers. PerioTwist has been vetted by numerous dental professionals and tested on hundreds of individuals.
While there are competitors on the market, PerioTwist is patent protected and is the only inter-dental cleaner that can be twisted and push/pulled, thereby providing the best cleaning experience.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
