WhiteHill Life Sciences Announces Patent Filing: “Stannous Fluoride Sugar Alcohol Solid Solutions”
STAFFORD, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 20, 2018--Ronald Butler, MBA, CEO, announces another patent filing with inventors Dr. Dale Brown, PhD, CTO, and Dr. Ira Hill, PhD, Founder and Chairman.
The patent application relates to: A composition of stannous fluoride, flavorants and oral coating agents that stabilize and deliver efficacious and pleasantly tasting ingredients, improving patient compliance.
“This is the second patent filing within the last 90 days from the WhiteHill team and is targeted for the dental practitioner seeking a solution to the problem of off-putting tastes from stannous fluoride discouraging patients from continuing its use,” said Ron Butler, CEO. “We have a very productive R & D team that has assigned 59 patents to WhiteHill since its founding in 1986.”
Dr. Hill comments, “If an oral care solution goes unused (non-compliant) by the patient, it is of no value. The problem with most extant stannous fluoride formulations is that they taste of green persimmons, zinc and aluminum chlorides, and other salts. The art of this patent is that its advanced hedonics eliminates the excuse of ‘bad tastes’ that often leads to non-compliance.
“This unique, surprisingly more stable, formulation of stannous fluoride, which does not resort to de-activating ingredients for control of negative taste and feel, is exceptionally effective for the treatment of various oral sores like aphis ulcers and yeast infections such as thrush and the terrible oral pain resulting from AIDS.”
Dr. Brown adds, “Dental professionals will appreciate xylitol’s helpful oral care benefits and the long-recognized benefits of pure stannous fluoride on healthy gums and teeth, and all these combined with the pleasant, refreshing taste of the Hydralief™ product line and see the benefits of daily patient compliance.”
WhiteHill launched the patent pending Hydralief™ oral care product line in August and is planning the launch of this professional oral care line this fall.
