Over 5% of the global health budget is spent every year treating the effects of dental caries. The cost to the global economy is measured in hundreds of billions of dollars. With life expectancy increasing around the globe, there is an increasing need to provide cost effective preventative medical solutions that enable people to stay fit and healthy throughout their life. Ensuring that everyone has their own strong natural teeth throughout their lifetime is a key enabler in that vision, and it is something we are proud that our treatment can be a part of.
A part of that vision is to make it easier for all people to participate in regular dental check-ups. We want to take away all the fear and stress that many people feel about a dental check-up. It has been reported that in many countries over one third of the general population do not go to the dentist regularly because of their fear of the dentist’s drill, its noise and the resulting anxiety they experience. We believe we have a solution that invites all people to the dental surgery, that will cause no stress beforehand, and no lingering pain after treatment. This can have a major impact on dental attendances, simultaneously lowering overall expenditure for government and re-imbursers by enabling earlier stage detection and treatments and avoiding the pain and cost associated with later stage caries.
