Struggling with oral health symptoms? You’re not alone.

We know because we’ve been there. Dealing with oral disease has left us feeling frustrated, self-conscious, embarrassed, and lost. We’ve turned from doctor to doctor trying to find a diagnosis and solution, so we created a better way.

Bristle takes the guesswork out of oral health

Specific bacteria in your mouth release byproducts that cause bad breath, gum inflammation, and more. We measure the levels of these bacteria, give you a full report, and provide one-on-one coaching with one of our oral health experts to review your results.

Fix oral conditions for good with personalized recommendations

By identifying the root cause of your symptoms and understanding your experience and preferences, we'll figure out which products, diet, and hygiene routines will work best for you.
DENTAL CARE IS JUST ONE SMALL PART OF A HEALTHY MOUTH

Cavities and gum disease are the most common diseases on the planet - and largely preventable.

We only see a dentist a few times per year. Only 50% of US adults regularly go!

Oral disease is diagnosed based on the presence and severity of symptoms

Late-stage detection requires invasive and expensive procedures like cavity fillings and root canals
