A Leamington dentist claims to have invented a brush that can cure chronic gum disease in under a week; Dr Hani Mostafa, of Dentistry at the Gallery in Leicester Street, coordinated an independent study into his Gumsaver Gumbrush at the International Sharm El Sheikh Hospital in Egypt. The research involved treating patients with periodontal disease using the new tool, and the results were startling.
Dr Mostafa has spent five years developing the product and even he was surprised by how effective the brush was, when combined with antibacterial mouthwash. He told The Warwick Courier ‘I had no idea that in combining my product and Corsodyl Gel, a freely available gum health medicine from chemists, that the disease could be essentially eradicated within 90 hours. It depends on focus by the patient and support from their dentist.’
Gum disease is a very common problem and it is estimated that around 90% of the adult population in the UK will suffer with it at some stage. The Gumsaver is currently helping around 500 patients at Dr Mostafa’s surgery who suffer with gum disease and he is happy for other dentists to benefit from his invention, he said ‘I would also welcome any dental health professional to contact me at Dentistry at the Gallery if they would like to know how it was done.’
