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.
