Babies have a natural need to suck from birth, as it gives them a feeling of security and calms them in stressful moments. About 66% of all tooth misplacements are caused by sucking. Next to the open sucking bite, the cross bite and the overbite, tongue dysfunction can also occur.

In close collaboration with leading dentists, Dentistar has succeeded in developing a new kind of pacifier in accordance with current scientific findings.

Professor Stefan Zimmer, Chair for Restorative and Preventive Dentistry at the University of Witten/Herdecke, has carried out research in a two-level long-term study with his team, on how different pacifiers affect the emergence of an 'open bite'. The result show that the Dentistar pacifier leads to almost no open bites in comparison with other common pacifier types. At the same time, the pacifier was recognized by the Swiss non-profit dental institution Toothfriendly International.

The Dentistar pacifier's unique patent design is a s follows: The distance between the upper and lower incisors is reduced, thanks to the dental-step. This lowers the risk of an open bite. The pressure on jaws and teeth is decreased by up to 90%. All these steps can prevent jaw deformation.
