Welcome to our first post!
Welcome to our first blog post!
At PhotoDynamic Inc we’ve spent a lot of time perfecting our flagship product, the oral hygiene medical device PhytoLight®. This device is now approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada. We’ve completed two clinical studies conducted by the Harvard University-affiliated Forsyth Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts. More about our phenomenal results will be shared in a later post!
The logical subject for this post is: What is it and how does it work?
What is it?
The PhytoLight System is an oral hygiene product that incorporates two parts: (1) PhytoLight oral hygiene device and, (2) PhytoLight daily cleansing dental foam.
How does it work?
The bioactive dental foam was specially formulated to be used with the PhytoLight device. It is a unique, safe product and contains gentle food-grade ingredients. The foam contains a patented bioactive plant extract called PhytoQuin® (we’ll tell you more about that later, it’s a fascinating story!) that is activated with blue light (465 nm) and once activated, starts a cascade of reactive oxygen species (ROS, you’ve probably heard of them!) that do incredible things in the mouth. These ROS target some of the nastiest bacteria in the oral cavity and disrupt the biofilm on the teeth and gums. Our research has verified that our treatment not only kills many oral bacterial species, including Streptococcus mutans, but also prevents regrowth, while leaving the healthy oral microbiome intact.
Why use it?
The question is why wouldn’t you use this incredible revolutionary product? The dental community has been recommending the same advice for decades: brush and floss. The problem: many of us are high plaque formers, wear braces, or have other oral health issues like gingivitis. The mainstream advice of brushing & flossing just doesn’t cut the mustard! According to the recent CDC report on oral health, nearly half (46%) of all adults aged 30 years or older show signs of gum disease, the leading cause of tooth loss.

More and more we are becoming aware of the link between the oral microbiome and systematic illnesses like diabetes, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, respiratory infections, and cognitive decline. We will take a deep dive into this in a future blog post!
Have a minute?
Our PhytoLight regime takes one minute. Let me say that again: ONE MINUTE. There is no other product on the market that can do that!
Thanks for reading and we can’t wait to share more information with you!
