KFOR (AP) — The Oral Health Associations Association of America says it is urging KForce, maker of oral health products, to remove products that can cause cancer.
The association’s board of directors issued a statement Friday saying the association has received more than 200 complaints about dental health devices and products.
The products include oral fluid implants, dental caries solutions, mouthguards and other products.
It says it has no information about whether or not any of the devices are safe or effective.KForce said in a statement that it will review all products with the association’s stamp of approval.KFOR spokesman Dan Wierzbicki says the association believes the devices have not been shown to reduce cancer risk.
Wierzbicksi says KForce and the dental health association are in communication and that KForce will consider its position in due time.
