OrthoGum CEOs, William Paini and Amy Carpenter, will donate $1.00 for every pack of Active gum purchased for a month towards COVID-19 relief funds.
To help those in need during the COVID-19 crisis, OrthoGum, makers of Active, an orthodontic chewing gum, has announced that it will be donating $1.00 for every pack of Active gum purchased for a month towards COVID-19 relief funds.
According to the company, Active gum kills the bacteria on clear aligners or braces, decreasing the patient’s risk for cavities. OrthoGum also says that Active decreases pain when changing to new aligners and helps improve patient tracking. The product is also designed to help patients maintain fresh breath, and can be useful until regular dental cleaning appointments are able to resume.
Active by OrthoGum was founded in 2017 by William Paini and Amy Carpenter in Denver, Colorado. They wanted to create solutions for patients in orthodontic therapy, and sought to address complaints from patients about bad breath, ill-fitting aligners, pain, higher risk of cavities, and smelly aligners.
