BOSTON, MA (PRWEB) FEBRUARY 23, 2017
Armor Dental, a privately held dental device company that is dedicated to modernizing patient care at home and improving outcomes, announced that Mouth•Mate®, world’s first patented dental healing aid to improve hygiene at home following dental procedures is now being distributed by Henry Schein Dental, ACE Surgical and additional distributors in the near future. Cherie Le Penske, CEO, will be demonstrating Mouth•Mate at the Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting taking place from February 23rd- 25th 2017 at McCormick Place West in Chicago, IL.
“We are very excited to be distributing Mouth•Mate with both ACE Surgical and Henry Schein Dental, who support our mission of improving oral health for all dental patients and modernizing their recovery at home,” said Cherie Le Penske, CEO of Armor Dental Corporation. “After recently completing a 600 In-Office patient trial, Chicago Midwinter provides us with a tremendous platform to showcase Mouth•Mate’s proven ability to substantially enhance patient comfort and hygiene at home following a variety of dental procedures. Our launch with ACE Surgical and Henry Schein Dental underpin a comprehensive distributor launch plan that we plan to announce in 2017.”
What is Mouth•Mate?
Armor Dental is introducing a new approach and concept to clinicians to enhance recovery and improve hygiene at home after dental procedures. Mouth•Mate has been specifically designed to decrease complications and improve healing and protects dental wounds, chronic mouth sores (such as Lichen Planus, Aphthous Ulcers), and even painful sores from cancer treatments. It is the ideal healing aid for implants, bone grafting, soft tissue grafting and teeth extractions. The oral care product can also help retract the inner cheek to help make brushing easier in hard to reach places, and improve a patient’s hygiene program at home. Patients can also begin using Mouth•Mate immediately if they have gum disease, notice a sore developing, or have had an orthodontic procedure. Patients use Mouth•Mate as they heal because it is designed specifically to eliminate pain and direct contact with the toothbrush during brushing.
During a recent in-office trial, data demonstrated that patients often felt nervous to brush near an oral wound the first couple of days following surgery and found using Mouth•Mate on the third day improved comfort and healing. Mouth•Mate is available now through ACE Surgical, Henry Schein Dental and additional distributors in the near future.
- Design and length of handle = comfortable and provides greater access.
- Contoured handle = prevents slipping.
- Bendable and customizable making it a perfect fit for every patient.
- Secure and soft tip = provides security and protection comfortably over the wound.
4 Tips for Many Uses
Mouth•Mate comes in four different soft tips that have been designed specifically to assist cleaning by protecting oral wounds caused by the most frequent dental procedures.
- Protect oral wounds and reduce pain during brushing, which can help reduce infections and promote healing.
- Heal faster at home and help patients get back to their normal routine.
- Brush better without pain while not disrupting the surgical area.
- Decrease post-procedure complications and rising costs of unplanned follow-up visits.
- Improve patient experience at home and take the fear away as they recover.
- Give patients confidence and security so they can easily follow their home instructions.

February 3, 2017 — Armor Dental has launched a patented dental healing aid device for patients.
The product, the Mouth•Mate, allows a patient who has had oral surgery and other dental procedures to brush their teeth without disturbing the surgical site.
The patient holds the device, designed with a handle shaped like a manual toothbrush, with one hand as they brush their teeth. The product comes with four adjustable tips of different sizes and shapes that are used to cover or retract the oral wound area.

Mouth•Mate is a home-care instrument for patients who have undergone many different types of dental surgical procedures. The shaft resembles a toothbrush, and, in fact, is used in conjunction with a toothbrush. Patients recovering from procedures ranging from implant placements to grafts will either avoid the treated area during due to pain, or will risk negatively influencing the intent of the surgery.
The Mouth Mate shaft is tipped with four different shapes to help the patient protect an area while brushing. Although the patient is using both hands to both brush and protect an area with Mouth Mate, the patient does not need to be ambidextrous. The Mouth•Mate is simply held over the sensitive area during home-based care.
A U-shaped tip was developed for implants, bone grafts, and extractions. An oval tip protects the treated area after soft tissue graft, crown lengthenings, and biopsies. A circular tip was designed for protecting areas after wisdom tooth extractions, apicoectomies, and frenectomies.
While hygienists can work closely with orthodontists, oral surgeons, and dentists in recommending Mouth•Mate for post-op home care routines, Mouth•Mate also can help oral care compliance during the appearance of canker sores, orthodontic sores, and other oral lesions.

BOSTON, Mass., USA: The 2017 Yankee Dental Congress was held Jan 25 to 29, and dental professionals gathered from throughout the Northeast to partake in a wide array of cutting-edge educational opportunities and to view the latest products and technology. On the exhibit hall floor, more than 450 companies and organizations were on hand, offering everything needed to run a successful practice.
Among the many exhibitors was Armor Dental, a privately held dental device company that recently launched Mouth-Mate, described as “the world’s first patented dental healing aid to improve oral health at home.” According to Armor Dental, Mouth-Mate enhances patient care following oral surgeries, periodontal procedures and cosmetic dental procedures including implants, bone grafts, soft tissue grafting, tooth extractions, laser procedures and orthodontics.
Katherine Haltom, DMD, and Larry Joyce, DMD, were on hand in the exhibit hall to demonstrate Mouth-Mate. Also, Cherie Le Penske, CEO, presented Mouth-Mate at RDH’s New Product Panel Event.
“The success of every patient’s dental procedure is highly dependent upon compliance and good oral hygiene during the recovery period at home but clinicians cannot follow their patients home to make sure they are doing what they are told,” Haltom said, in a press release issued by Armor Dental before the meeting.
“Mouth-Mate allows the dentist to extend their excellent care from the office into the patient’s home, which will improve biofilm management and oral health for patients,” the company said.
Many other product demonstrations and educational opportunities were being offered in the exhibit hall.
