Revolutionary Antibacterial Technology

KOITE® technology is an effective solution against bacteria for long term use.

It is safe, effective and there is no antibiotic resistance formation.

KOITE® technology is widely adoptable in health care! First target area for KOITE® treatment is in oral care.

Key facts about oral health provided by WHO
Oral health is a cornerstone of good health.
Most of the oral diseases are caused by bacteria.
Over 60-90% of school-age children and nearly 100% of adults have or have had dental decay.
74% of adults suffer from gingivitis, and 21% have deep gum pockets.
Around the world, the occurrence of severe periodontitis (gum disease) is 11.2 %, which has remained at the same level since 1990.
Peri-implant mucositis
Peri-implant mucositis occurs in 43% of patients after surgery. And, more severe peri-implantitis occurs in 22% of patients post-surgery.

Biofilm bacterial control is extremely challenging

The challenge is that in a biofilm, what is called an "exopolysaccharide matrix scaffold" protects microbes from external damage. Almost all antibacterial treatments are ineffective.
Resistance formation
Use of antibiotics is impractical due to resistance formation. Even mouth rinses show a cross-resistance formation against the Cholistin antibiotic.
Continuous use
Continuous use of the gold standard antiseptic Chlorhexidine causes dental discoloring, taste change and a reduced immune response.
Preserve normal flora
Maintaining normal bacterial flora is important for health. Disruption in the flora increases the risk of illness. Eliminate bacteria only at tooth level and let normal flora flourish.

Introducing Lumoral®: A proprietary antibacterial prophylaxis

  • Kills harmful bacteria. Significantly more effective than mechanical cleansing alone.
  • No resistance formation. Whitening effect instead of staining.
  • For continuous use with sustaining efficacy.

Enhance good dental hygiene using powerful KOITE® method

KOITE ® uses a Photodynamic Therapy based method where specific wavelengths of light activate a photosensitizer. In the presence of oxygen, this creates a reaction that kills harmful bacteria. Our photosensitizer adheres to dental plaque and the method is extremely effective against the most harmful Streptococcus species on the surface of teeth. It also reduces colonies of bacterial species known to cause periodontitis (gum disease), the most common cause of tooth loss among adults. Because the action is localized to teeth only, normal flora is preserved in other parts of the mouth.

I greatly believe in the potential of the new prophylactic device to combat against oral infections. Even greater potential of the device is in the prevention of the secondary diseases arising from the compromised oral health"

Heikki Alapulli

Koite Health provides a great opening to support pediatric dental hygiene. Sustaining oral bacterial diversity while reducing plaque bacteria is very appealing"
