TheraStom and OxiStom

Forward Science, a Houston-based and locally operated MedTech company, has launched a new line of professional use rinses, TheraStom and OxiStom.

Forward Science’s flagship product, OralID, was introduced in March 2013 and has since revolutionized the way clinicians screen for early-stage oral cancer, according to the company. After the successful launch of OralID, the Forward Science team made it their mission to create high-quality, cost-effective products to clinicians and patients in the dental industry.

Since 2013, Forward Science has released a number of therapeutic options, diagnostic kits and even stepped into the creation of hand sanitizers during the COVID-19 pandemic to serve the needs of their dental partners. This line of professional rinses was the direct result of feedback from Forward Science customers who needed proven products that had the ability to generate revenue as well.

“We are always striving for ways to better serve the needs of our partners in the dental community, whether that be through life-changing technology for oral cancer screening, hand sanitizer during a pandemic or creating this line of rinses,” said Forward Science CEO Robert Whitman. “TheraStom and OxiStom are two products that fill a need for our dental partners, proving protection for your patients and revenue for your practice. We are eager to get this product out and thrilled to hear the response from these trusted clinicians.”

According to the company, TheraStom is an antigingivitis, antiplaque daily oral therapeutic rinse that also helps control halitosis-causing VSCs. TheraStom is a unique blend of CPC (Cetylpyridinium Chloride), zinc, xylitol and essential oils while containing no alcohol, dyes or artificial flavoring.

OxiStom is an oral wound cleansing rinse that helps cleanse and promote healing of oral wounds, according to the company. OxiStom is a hydrogen peroxide rinse with added benefits of xylitol and essential oils, while also containing no alcohol, dyes or artificial flavoring.

Both of these rinses are “professional use only,” intended for dentists to offer products to patients that are not available at traditional retail.

“We are proud to release these two rinses to our partners in the dental community. They are safe, effective and trusted rinse options for patients,” says Forward Science Chief Scientific Officer Brian Pikkula. Forward Science’s goal of continuing to move science forward persisted through the pandemic, with the R&D team working tirelessly for over a year to launch our professional product line, he said.

“TheraStom and OxiStom are a result of our R&D team’s tireless efforts. We are eager to launch this new product line and continue to support our practices and patients with the goal of oral health,” Pikkula said.
