If you browse social media enough, you’ll come across some quality accounts and information that will amaze you, no matter what peaks your interest. Here at Keystone Industries, we take in pride in our Twitter presence with current customers, potential clients, and anyone else interested in the dental industry.

With that being said, we’ve recently connected with The Mouthpiece Guy, who creates top-quality mouthguards for his clients out of our resin sheets. These clients range from boxers to UFC fighters, but they all have one thing in common: they take some nasty hits to the face. “With power comes great responsibility”, and that’s where these mouthguards come into play.

Our mouthguard resin sheets are soft and ideal for maximum energy absorption, which adds to the quality protection these fighters need while competing. On top of getting the oral protection job done, the users love the comfort, feel, and look to these mouthpieces as well, as you can hear from video testimonies on The Mouthpiece Guy’s website.

It’s an all around win-win situation for The Mouthpiece Guy, his clients, and Keystone Industries. Check out some photos of the products below, and view them all on our Facebook page!

Gelato Prophy Paste 3-Peats as Top Prophy Paste for 2015

Screen Shot 2015-01-13 at 4.52.47 PMGIBBSTOWN, N.J. – It’s a 3-Peat for Keystone Industries and their highly reputed Gelato Prophy Paste. For the third consecutive year, Gelato has taken home The Dental Advisor’s award for Top Prophy Paste, making it once again the top choice for dental professionals.

This prophy paste was evaluated by 35 consultants in over 2500 uses, and ended the testing with a 91% clinical rating.

Other than the numbers speaking for themselves, there are plenty of great reviews that helped The Dental Advisor solidify Gelato as their choice for the top prophy paste. Comments such as “Does not splatter”, “Easy to rinse”, and “Cups are color-coded and easy to open” for why Gelato has such a highly regarded reputation.

Gelato is now a 3-Peat winner of the Top Prophy Paste Award (2013, 2014, 2015).

Gelato Prophy 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.

The 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 6 ounce (exports only) and 12 ounce jars.

Available in four different grits (fine, medium, coarse, and x-course), Gelato will take care of your 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 paste is 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 Pina 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 The Dental Advisor. 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 the mark with quality and price.

Statistics and feedback are what gave Gelato such a high rating and awards three years running now, but it also speaks wonders for the high-quality work Keystone Industries puts into their American-made dental products. Across the board, dentists and lab technicians alike, give Gelato and the various amounts of other products great feedback.

With the new acquisitions of Bosworth and Enamelite coming onto the table in 2014, expect the high ratings to keep pouring in for Keystone.

For more information on Gelato Prophylaxis Paste or any Keystone product, contact Keystone Industries toll-free at 1 (800) 333-3131 or fax (856) 663-0381.

Where did the toothbrush come from?

Keystone Industries recently posted several blogs about toothbrushes. But where did they come from? How did they originate? When did they become mainstream? Well, the history of the toothbrush is quite interesting…

A recent New York Times article explained the history of the toothbrush. The toothbrush is now a staple in nearly anyone’s hygiene repertoire. Is it one of the greatest inventions? Well, that can be argued, especially if you like keeping your teeth clean.

Imagine brushing your teeth with this.

Imagine brushing your teeth with this.

The toothbrush can be tracked nearly 5,000 years ago when people used softened ends of sticks to clean teeth. But the actual toothbrush originated in China around the time of the Middle Ages. During this time, people started cleaning their teeth with animal bristles.

Still, though, people preferred wiping their teeth down with a rag. And as late as the 1920s, people did not brush their teeth regularly. The bristles were tough and easily tore up mouths. So the toothbrush wasn’t mainstream until the 1940 when synthetics came into play.

Plastics enabled more mouth-friendly toothbrushes. After that, toothbrushes started to skyrocket. Now we have hundreds of styles, shapes and brands of toothbrushes. Open up a medicine cabinet and you’re sure to find a toothbrush. And now there are even eclectic toothbrushes. Quite an evolution from just a frayed stick!
