INFOGRAPHIC: Preventing Periodontal Disease

In the infographic below, provided by Serenity Dental Clinic, prevention for periodontal disease is outlined nicely with graphic. The disease, which nearly 65-million American adults suffer from (47.2% of those above 30-years old, according to the CDC), is the result of infections and inflammation of the gums and bones that support the teeth.

Some warnings of the disease may include consistently bad breath, bleeding gums, loose teeth, and/or painful chewing. However, these symptoms can easily be avoided if you brush and floss your teeth regularly and visit the dentist annually, as indicated below.

FOR THE DENTISTS: This infographic can play a major role in your office, just by making patients aware of the disease. Many suffer, yet many are unaware. Feel free to share across your social media feeds or print it out for your office.

The All-Star Lineup Every Dental Professional Needs For Mouthguard Season

The time has come for athletes far and wide across the country, as the season is finally upon us – outdoor sports season. This is also meaningful to those off the courts and fields, such as dental professionals – it’s mouthguard season!

We here at Keystone Industries take pride in offering high-quality, custom-fit mouthguards that lead the market in saving teeth and money all at once. Since 1967, Pro-Form has been a role player in the oral protection community, giving teams and athletes around the world affordable equipment and materials.

Our Pro-Form materials are used from the highest levels of professional sports all the way through youth leagues, and offer the highest level of protection, retention, and comfort possible. On top of all this, athletes are also able to speak and breathe easier than most types of mouthguards on the market.

Take a look at some of these alarming statistical findings, just to show how important this level of protection is for athletes in any and all sports:

  • 5 MILLION teeth are lost every year in sports activities (Source)
  • 34% of sports injuries involve the face (Source)
  • Dental injuries can cost more than 20X the preventative costs of a custom-fit Pro-Form mouthguard (Source)
  • 200,000 injuries prevented annually by mouthguards (Source)

Now that you know how important this piece of protection is, let’s get into how the process is made simple for you. Below are two embedded videos from our YouTube channel that demonstrate the vacuum forming process and how to customize the mouthguard. Both processes can be done in either a dentist office or a dental lab.

In this first video, see how our vacuum former is able to make a custom-fit mouthguard out of one of our laminates:

In the second video, watch the tutorial of our centri-fuse kit, which easily puts custom logos, numbers, and letters onto an already-formed mouthguard:

Role players like these are vital in the process. But now you may be asking about what star players we have readily available to actually protect the teeth.

There are 200+ color and style laminates available in square or round. Your custom experience is endless, but can start with these popular choices in styles:

Dual-Color

Tri-Color

Don’t forget of the most innovative way to select a mouthguard in the dental industry! If you have an iOS device with a camera, be sure to download the Keystone Industries app to try on a virtual mouthguard for yourself!

Choose between any color and style we offer, and see how it looks in your mouth inside the app. This is an excellent selling point for a patient in the chair of your office, and can increase sales with no effort at all. You won’t see an app like this in any app store!

There’s a lot more from where these come from, so checking out the Pro-Form section of our website would be best to find exactly what you’re looking for in thickness, style, color, shape, etc. and even clear and black straps, which are required in most youth sports leagues. There are many videos on our YouTube channel and in our Learning Center, as well as our most up-to-date pamphlets and brochures in our Catalog section available for your download.
