Dentistar

The first and only tooth-friendly pacifier worldwide – made in Germany, designed by a dentist.

 

Babies have an inborn, natural reflex, which satisfied, gives your child a feeling of safety and comfort. In order for you to allow your child the use of a pacifier with confidence, we have developed the Dentistar – the toothfriendly pacifier with “dental-step”.

Because healthy teeth and a healthy jaw are the best preconditions for your child’s beautiful smile later on.

What sets the Dentistar pacifier apart is the wholly new shape of the teat. It has an extra-flat shaft, an integrated dental-step, allows more room for your baby’s tongue and reduces the pressure on jaw and teeth up to 90%. So it offers maximum comfort for your baby.

This has been established by an independent long-term clinical study by the University of Witten/Herdecke in Germany, and the Swiss non-profit organisation “Aktion Zahnfreundlich e.V.” which has awarded the Dentistar pacifier as the worldwide first “toothfriendly” pacifier.

 

Scientific background

About 66% of all tooth misplacements are caused by sucking. As well as the open sucking bite, the cross bite and the overbite, tongue dysfunction can also occur. The clarity of your child's speech can be considerably affected by this as a result.

In close collaboration with leading dentists, we have now succeeded in developing a new kind of pacifier in accordance with current scientific findings.

Long-term study by the University of Witten/Herdecke

Three years of objective research

In the three year-long study, newborns were examined to see whether they had developed a so-called 'frontal open bite' through the use of pacifiers. The results for the young test subjects who were given an ordinary pacifiers were astounding; an open bite was confirmed in 38% of the small children.

Professor Stefan Zimmer, Chair for Restorative and Preventive Dentistry at the University of Witten/Herdecke, carried out research in a two-level long-term study with his team, about how different pacifiers affect the emergence of an 'open bite'.

At the beginning of the study, the babies were divided into three research groups: Group N (ordinary pacifier), Group D (Dentistar pacifier) and a control group C (no pacifier).

The result shows that the Dentistar pacifier leads to almost no open bites, compared to other common pacifier types, so that it can be recommended for children up to 16 months. The continual study also proved that the Dentistar pacifier can also be recommended on an unlimited basis to small children up to 27 months
