POH is celebrating 60 years of helping people clean,
and keep, their teeth!
POHtoothbrushes conform to the specifications of C. C. Bass, M.D., the father of Preventive Dentistry, and not some marketing company.
POH bristles are pure nylon, carefully end rounded and polished to prevent damage to your delicate gum tissue. Our bristles come in a variety of configurations, you are sure to find one for enjoy using. POH is always changing our colors, and the polymer we use is easily recycled (after snipping off the bristle end) in the #5 bin. The cost of our toothbrushes is very low, compared to the commercial over the counter toothbrush sold all over. Soft, gentle and effective, the bristles are 7 thousandths of an inch in diameter, to enable them to get in to the hardest to reach places. We also have a SuperSoft™ with bristles 5 thousandths of an inch, for the tenderest of mouths.
POH toothbrushes have been used by Preventive Dentist's around the world for over six decades. If they trust them, you know your family can!
POH toothbrush handles are size optimized for 98%+ of the human race, and use less polymer, unlike the the huge, bulky toothbrush handles the over the counter mass market toothbrushes of today. This helps to lower our post-use environmental footprint. Buying a toothbrush, because of the handle, is like buying perfume because of the bottle.
POH puts your hard earned money in to the bristles instead!
POH dental floss, also as specified by Dr Bass, is the gold standard of all dental flosses. Our floss is a multifilament type of floss, made up of many indivdual strands of tiny nylon filaments, which slip readily into the tightest of spaces, and especially under your gumline, where it really counts.
POH floss is pure nylon, not PTFE. Our floss will not shed forever chemicals in your mouth.
POH floss, when used properly, will actually get your teeth squeaky clean, thus ensuring a health mouth, and prevents gum disease when you floss every night.
POH floss comes in NoWax™ or LiteWax™, depending on your preference. We offer three thicknesses, 420 our thinnest, 490, the original, and 630 denier, our thickest floss. Denier is a term of art in the engineered yarn science, and refer to the size of the individual filaments. Each filament is less than half of 1 thousandth of an inch thick.
POH is proud to inform you that our dental floss containers are designed to be refillable, further lessening our post-use environmental footprint!
POH floss is priced at a cost that can't be beat, especially the refills!
Our favorite story about our floss is that NASA chose it to go along with the astronauts, on their trip to the Moon!
Because you can't get a toothache in outer space!
Seriously, it was chosen by the flight medicine team as part of an experiment to study the germs to see if any bad things happened to them, similar to a canary in a coal mine. The short life cycle of the bacteria would show if any genetic or physical changes occured to the bacteria. Nobody had been in space when it was chosen. The NASA scientists would get the soiled floss samples back to their lab and see if any changes happened.
Our founder, Robert G Jones, DDS, was VERY proud of that!
