Gelato wins back-to-back prophy paste of the year award

The Dental Advisor-PP Award '13-14Cherry Hill, N.J. – Keystone Industries has done it yet again! Gelato Prophy Paste has been named the top prophy paste for the second year in the row, making it the top choice of dental professionals across the world.

Gelato received its first distinction of Top Prophy Paste of the year in 2013. Now it’s only reaffirmed by the same distinction for 2014.

In 2013, the paste received a 91% clinical rating. Forty percent of consultants found Gelato Prophy Paste better than other prophy pastes they had used, and 43% found it to be equivalent. Sixty-three percent of consultants would switch to Gelato Prophy Paste, and 80% would recommend it.

Reviewer comments included “easy to rinse” and patients “liked the flavor variety.” One tester said it “does not feel gritty in the mouth.” These qualities truly reflect what dental professionals and patients look for in a prophy paste.

Prophy Box with cups

Gelato Prophy Paste has been the choice by dental professionals for the last two years.

This review is significant to show that Gelato continues to be the best option out on the market for two years running. It also reaffirms Keystone’s accomplishments of providing high quality, American-made dental products.

Gelato Prophylaxis Paste provides smooth, pliable and splatter-free application. The 1.23% fluoride ion Gelato paste is perfect for high-luster polishing and stain removal, but it remains gentle enough on the enamel with minimal enamel loss.

Gelato paste comes in boxes of 200 individual disposable cups for convenient use. The disposable cups also eliminate cross contamination and include a prophy ring for ease of application on the patient’s teeth. For more options, the paste comes in 12-ounce jars (exports only).

The paste is available in four different grits (fine, medium, course, and x-course) for various stain removal needs. Typically, hygienists use the fine grit for routine use and the medium grit gives a little more stain removal power. The coarse pastes are required for removing moderate to heavy stains. No matter the job, Gelato Prophy Paste provides exactly what dental professionals need.

Keystone Industries continues to put forward the largest assortment of great-tasting Gelato flavors such as Piña Colada, and Orange Sherbet. The paste line also has Mint, Cherry, Bubble Gum and Raspberry flavors for a plethora of flavor options to satisfy picky clients. The individual cups are clearly labeled for quick retrieval and application.

Overall, Keystone is proud of this highly regarded review from a group of reputable dental professionals. As a company that strives to create the best quality products at the best price, Keystone is proud to say Gelato Prophy Paste has hit that mark.

Is saving a tooth better than dental implant?

Modern dentistry has many ways to save a diseased tooth but some patients just want the damaged tooth out and a dental implant in its place. Which is the better choice?pulp

People lose teeth primarily because of gum disease, severe decay or accidents. Treatments for all have greatly improved throughout the years.

Gum disease used to be hard to control and gum disease surgery was painful and recovery slow. Today, lasers make short work of periodontal surgery, if it is even needed. New genetic testing allows dentists to pinpoint treatments, including topical antibiotics, that were unheard of several years ago. Teeth that were once destined to be lost can now be saved and long term prognosis for these teeth is good according to research.
