The Reasons Behind Getting Dental X-Rays

Getting x-rays at the dentist may not be your favorite thing, but this insightful infographic from DentAbout.com helps outline the importance behind them. Although both intraoral and extraoral x-rays show the teeth, their focuses differ from the general health of your teeth (intraoral) to your jaw and skull (extraoral). Nonetheless, these x-rays allow for the dentist to do their job and check for decay, cavities, and disease that aren’t visible to the naked eye.

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.

Keystone Industries partakes in a very special “Jay Day”

IMG_1307
Cherry Hill, N.J. – Keystone Industries took part in a very special day in rural Pennsylvania. “Jay Day,” a day in which Dr. Robert Silverman, DMD, provides free dental services to the locally uninsured.

In memory of Dr. Silverman’s son, Jason, Silverman Dental Associates delivered free dental care all day long. “Jay Day” is a big thank you to the community for the unselfish support given to the Silverman family during Jason’s hard-fought battle with leukemia and eventual passing.

Residents of Lebanon County, Pa., who were in need of a helping hand, were treated on a first come first served basis (no scheduled appointments). And the staff provided each patient a choice of one of the following services: exam & cleaning, filling, and/or emergency treatment.

Keystone Industries helped this special event by donating Keystone dental items that were vital to servicing the people throughout the day. Keystone Industries looks forward to continue in endeavors such as Jay Day and helping communities across the country to receive the dental care they need.

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

Gelato adds fresh new look for 2014

Cherry Hill, N.J. – Keystone Industries’s Gelato Prophy Paste has had quite the success the last few years. After receiving back-to-back Top Prophy Paste awards – for 2013 and 2014 – it’s finally time for Gelato Prophy Paste to get a facelift.

Prophy Paste Box_mockupWith that being said, Gelato Prophy Paste will open this year with new packaging. The new design still displays the colorful and flavorful attributes of Gelato Prophy Paste, but in an updated and fresh look.

Keystone’s paste is renowned for its splatter-free formula, but also it’s great flavor and flavor options.

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.

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.

So with the new year, comes a new look for Keystone Industries’s Gelato Prophy Paste while still providing the same great paste dentists, hygienists and patients have learned to love.
