October is a big month for us all: dedicated to breast cancer awareness, dental hygiene

It’s a busy month of awareness all-around for the dental industry. Not only is the American Dental Hygiene Association running a month-long campaign for National Dental Hygiene Month (NDHM) to raise public awareness for good oral health, but October is also the month dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness as well, where you’ll see pink colors decked out everywhere to show support (including our own website).

On the AHDA’s website, there is an individual event page for everything related to NDHM. They’ve partnered with the W.M. Wrigley Company for the fifth consecutive year, focusing mainly on the four components of oral hygiene and ways to improve public awareness about bettering oral health. There is a “selfie” based contest being conducted as well as posters available to be downloaded to put online or in your office on the ADHA website. Below, you can watch a video announcement from ADHA President Kelli Swanson Jaecks on sponsoring the NDHM month and things to come.

As we all know through various companies and organizations support and promotion, October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The majority of people today have been affected by this horrible disease in some shape or form, which is why the spread of awareness and support is vital in helping fight back to find a cure. At Keystone Industries, the past couple of years we’ve sold pink breast cancer awareness-themed Pro-Form mouthguards with portions of the proceeds going towards breast cancer research. Athletes and dentists from all over have been thrilled with the performance and protection of these mouthguards, so showing this kind of support with it going to a good cause does indeed help out. This year, we took it up a notch, and made our whole website pink in support, too.

We've updated our website for the month of October in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Both of these calls for awareness this month are for good causes, and beneficiary to everyone inside and outside of the dental industry. Be sure to spread the word of the meaning of this month positively with friends on social media so we can help spread it even more! Oral health and breast cancer affects everyone’s lives, and it’s up to us to help make a change.

Essential For Your Dental Lab: Versacryl Lab Kit

CHERRY HILL, N.J. – Proven to set itself apart from being a regular “soft reline” in the denture market, Versacryl is an efficient and top-of-the-line product that you need for your lab. When it is warmed, it lays against the ridge with no rebound. This then becomes comparable to a memory foam mattress, as Versacryl reduces bounce and still forms to the shape. When it is all said and done, you are left with a comfortable, suctioned fit that will long a very long time.

There are several unique features Versacryl carries along with it, which in-turn gives you an excellent application. With Versacryle and the lab kit, you will get a strong bond to a hard, acrylic base, in a natural pink or clear color that lasts the industry standard of 12-16 months. A few features the Versacryl Lab Kit include:

  • Ability to be extended into an undercut, such as mechanically retaining a denture
  • Can be used to produce repeatable thermo-relines
  • Ability to retain overdentures on implants
  • Can create special wings to stabilize lower dentures
Keystone's Versacryl Lab Kit, pictured above, is an essential kit for all dental labs.

Some more advantages and special features Versacryl carries that competition can’t match include:

  • The rigidity of Versacryl controlled by varying proportion of the Softener and Hardener. This allows for an infinite range of consistencies, from very soft while heated to as hard as denture base.
  • Following polymerization, Versacryl remains thermo-elastic which allows it to be heat-softened in water for adaptation to softer tissues and teeth over and over again.
  • Versacryl’s unique memory means it automatically return to its original shape when heated.
  • Versacryl will chemically bond itself to any other acrylic product, either Heat Cure or Self Cure.
  • The product is a nice pink color that blends well with the denture base.
  • Because of the versatile properties of Versacryl, inventory doesn’t sit on the shelf waiting for the next reline.
  • Superb technical support can offer technique tips and help.
  • The material has a slow rebound shape after deformation and keep denture in contact with tissue while chewing.
  • Versacryl can completely replace those ugly metal hooks on partial dentures.
  • It creates adjustable relines.
  • It solves the problems involved with stabilizing loose lower dentures.
  • Versacryl is great for many other applications dental and non-dental!
