New NatureZone™ Ozone Chamber Kills Deadly Bacteria Found On Mouth Guards and all Oral Appliances!

Date: 9/24/09

Brain-Pad, Inc. boasts, its revolutionary NatureZone™ device, sanitizes mouth guards and dental appliances of 99.9% of known infectious bacteria including MRSA, STREP and Salmonella 

CONSHOHOCKEN, PA. - Seeking to address the recent studies indicating that all orally inserted appliances are harbors for deadly bacteria, known as bio-pathogens, Brain-Pad, Inc. unveils its new Ozone/UV chamber, NatureZone™.
This revolutionary sanitizing device kills the most deadly of germs and viruses that naturally grow on oral appliances, including bio-pathogens like the potentially life threatening strains of MRSA, STREP, Salmonella and C-Diff.
"Recent studies have identified our oral appliances as breeding grounds for these dangerous bacteria.  Athletes, coaches, dentist, dental laboratories and parents must be aware of these invisible infectious bugs, and be educated on how to best prevent an unexpected bout with one's health, " says Joseph Manzo, President of Brain-Pad, Inc.
These deadly bio-pathogens are common in hospitals but now have been spreading through:

  • Schools
  • Playing Fields
  • Locker Rooms
  • Military Bases
  • Nursing Homes 
  • Dental Offices and Dental Laboratories. 

Manzo explains that with push button activation, The NatureZone™ is flooded with UV light and natural disinfecting 03 Ozone ions that permeate and saturate the entire compartment and the most porous of contents. Bacteria can’t hide from Ozone so the ions grab and sanitize 99.9% of known bio-pathogens - in just three minutes.  The NatureZone™ is also a natural deodorizer.
Staph infections have been spreading through schools nationwide, according to health and education officials. Just last year, a school district in Bedford, VA had to shut down 21 schools because a 17-year-old student died after being diagnosed with MRSA.
With deadly bio-pathogens now proven to be lurking in these areas, it is critical to assure that they are killed before having the opportunity to enter the blood stream. With the jagged edges of a used oral appliance, one simple laceration in the mouth could allow for dissemination in the blood stream.     Combat Disease Transmission By Mouth Guard Wear   Life threatening infections/inflammatory diseases can be transmitted by the large number of molds, bacteria and yeasts found living in mouth guards, according to a case study done by Thomas Glass, DDS, PhD, published by the Academy of General Dentistry, in an issue of General Dentistry. See video: http://wbztv.com/seenon/dirty.mouth.guards.2.695283.html

This study published two case studies, both detailing the clinical history of two junior high football players - one had cellulitis of the leg after a non-break injury and one had acute exercise induced asthma with uncontrollable symptoms.   In both cases, the athletes wore mouth guards that were contaminated with the microorganisms that were considered to be the reason for their illness.
"The two cases presented in this article strongly implicate disease transmission by mouth guard wear," Glass reported.
Often tossed in a bag with germ-laden clothing and equipment, mouth guards are often not cleaned properly, if at all. 
Glass further explained that they had not yet found an acceptable decontamination method for these mouth guards because mouth guards, like night guards and dentures, are very porous. 
"While mouth guards appear solid, they are very porous, like a sponge, and with use, microorganisms invade these porosities," said Glass.
Washing or boiling the mouth guard isn't enough to get rid of all of the bacteria; the study concluded and further implicated that mouth guards may need to be single-use appliances. 
Until now.
Independent testing confirms that Brain-Pad’s product, The NatureZone™ sanitizes any oral appliance by creating millions of ozone ions that grab and neutralize 99.9% of these known bio-pathogens in only three minutes.   Other UV only products on the market may taut similar findings, but the NatureZone™ also combines the natural sanitizing and deodorizing properties of ozone that surround and permeate through the porosity of oral appliances.   According to Ozone International LLC, ozone: Kills bacteria 3100 times faster than chlorine or bleach Is chemical-free and produces no dangerous by-products Is the most powerful microbiological control agent available Virtually eliminates need for chemical usage Has full FDA approval for direct food contact

Most European and many American cities purify their municipal drinking water by bubbling ozone through it to kill all of the bacteria and viruses, etc. Since humans are 66% water, the same principals would apply.  Ozone can be infused through your body liquids to sterilize and purify them. 
Organisms killed by ozone have become familiar household names: STREP, Salmonella, Listeria, MRSA, C-Diff, Hepatitis A, Rotavirus and HIV.  Yes, HIV.  The NatureZone™
Independent studies have proven that The Disinfector™ is the fastest, easiest and natural way to combat deadly bio-pathogens. Other details:
