5th SEPA – DENTAID Symposium: the dentist and the dental hygienist, a single team

SEPA_DENTAID_041_edited

Once again DENTAID and the Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration (SEPA) joined forces to carry out this symposium, which has become a leading scientific meeting for oral health professionals.

This Symposium focused on updating dentists and hygienists on news relating to periodontal and peri-implant diseases, as well as the best ways to prevent these diseases, how to treat them and how to keep them under control or prevent their recurrence.

The Symposium was given by doctors of dental medicine, experts in the field, including Dr Silvia Roldán, who explained that 11.2% of the world population is affected by severe periodontitis and that over 12 million Spaniards suffer from periodontal disease. Dr Elena Figuero made special emphasis to the principal systemic diseases related to periodontitis: diabetes, cardiovascular disease and adverse effects during pregnancy are some of the ones most strongly backed by science.

According to Dr Andrés Pascual, more than 74% of patients do not know what peri-implant disease is, and therefore education constitutes the frontline of a preventive approach. Along these lines, both Dr María Rioboo and Dr Ana Carrillo stressed the importance of investing time in education for patient health, and they mentioned a more preventive stance in which patients assume responsibility and participate, which was something upon which all speakers of this Symposium agreed.

Dr Gerardo Gómez chose to highlight the importance of the oral health team and its role in promoting health. The key is to team up for general health, marking prevention as the first and essential step: brushing your teeth at least twice a day and getting regular check-ups at the dentist.

In addition, DENTAID took the opportunity to launch a solidarity action backed by VITIS hygienists (www.higienistasvitis.com). The initiative entailed involving the participants to donate a toothbrush to the organization Odontología Solidaria (Solidary Dentistry) by pressing a button at any of the official counters. Without a doubt, thanks to the involvement of the professionals, it was a success, and more than 4,800 brushes were donated!

Journalists and bloggers discover the new VITIS sonic electric brushes

imgThe sonic technology of the VITIS sonic brushes was the focus at the VITIS presentation to the media of their latest launch. Over 55 journalists and bloggers were able to see the new VITIS sonic first hand during a press conference held in Madrid.

VITIS Product Manager Marta de Múller and DENTAID’s Medical Advisor Xavier Calvo highlighted the main features of the new electric brushes as well as the benefits they contribute to daily oral hygiene.

All about the VITIS sonic

DENTAID presents VITIS sonic S10 and S20, two electric brushes that achieve the maximum effectiveness in the removal of bacterial plaque, thanks to their dual-action sonic technology and to the exclusive design of their heads, which protect teeth and gums. Sonic brushing adds a fluid dynamics action to the conventional mechanical cleaning action, helping to break up bacterial colonies and, in turn, inhibiting their growth and development.

VITIS sonic has a small, diamond-shaped head which allows it to reach areas of difficult access and to avoid injury thanks to its rounded end. Its high-quality Tynex® filaments coupled with the hydrodynamic action of sonic technology manage to reach the most complicated and hidden areas of the mouth, such as the interproximal regions and gingival margin. Likewise, lateral vibration of the filaments is carried out at a speed of between 31,000 and 40,000 movements per minute, which besides its mechanical action, manages to exert a hydrodynamic action which optimizes the removal of biofilm throughout the oral cavity.

  • Mechanical Action: The filaments vibrate at a high frequency (sonic vibration) on the surface of the tooth, thereby achieving effective removal of the oral biofilm, or bacterial plaque.
  • Hydrodynamic action: The high speed at which the filaments vibrate generates acoustic waves that produce tiny air bubbles that propagate through the saliva throughout the oral cavity, obtaining greater disruption of the oral biofilm. These oxygen-rich bubbles reach the subgingival areas and difficult to reach spaces, such as those between the teeth or below the gum line. These subgingival areas are where anaerobic bacteria dwell; their growth is inhibited when they come into contact with the oxygen bubbles formed by the movement of the brush.

The brush’s protective cap protects filaments from external contact while allowing air to flow through its perforations for fast drying.

Plus, thanks to its long-lasting battery (which has a run time of over one month), and to its comfortable grip (with anti-slip grooves), VITIS sonic is a practical and functional brush that covers all oral needs.

Sonic technology and its unique head are the main features that distinguish VITIS sonic from other electric brushes. The majority of electric brushes that are currently on the market base their cleaning mechanism on rotational technology which completes mechanical movements at a speed of 5,600 to 8,800 oscillations per minute, compared to the 40,000 achieved by VITIS sonic.

Perfect brushing with sonic technology.

Oral health can have an impact on overall health, so it is necessary to be aware of just how important daily oral hygiene is. It is essential that the toothbrush used allows us to maintain a correct level of cleaning and facilitate this task.

Thanks to its diamond-shaped head and sonic technology, VITIS sonic helps improve the outcomes of traditional brushing without the need for varying techniques while improving interdental hygiene. In addition, it helps with compliance of recommended brushing time thanks to its quadrant timer. Every 30 seconds the brush signals when it’s time to move on to the next quadrant by pausing briefly, to ensure fulfilment of recommended brushing time.

“Brushing should be performed for a minimum of 2 minutes, although some people need to spend more time, as is the case of periodontal patients. All you have to do is press the power button again and continue cleaning”, says Dr. Xavier Calvo, Periodontist, Dentist and Medical Advisor at DENTAID. “For those with special needs, VITIS sonic offers extra comfort and enhanced brushing effectiveness” the Doctor points out.

SEPA and DENTAID, together for quality continuing education

Metodologia1The Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration (SEPA) and DENTAID recently renewed its deep-rooted Continuing Education Agreement. This partnership allows for training and updating dentists and dental hygienists year after year on periodontology-related topics, dental implants, oral hygiene as well as dental coaching and managing a dental practice.

The training sessions, which are usually in person, are held in different Spanish cities throughout the year. This training plan aims to improve the care and service dental professionals offer their patients, by improving their knowledge and enhancing their skills in dentistry.

The recent signing of this agreement reaffirms the common interest of both entities to continue backing quality training for all dentistry professionals.

DENTAID at Oralth BCN dental and oral health forum

TwitterDENTAID participates in the latest Oralth BCN. Dentists and hygienists who visited the DENTAID booth were able to try the new VITIS sonic in the ​​product testing area. Selecting the type of brush head they preferred, medium or gingival, and devoting just 2 minutes, they were able to see the benefits of the new electric brush’s sonic technology.

The importance of interproximal cleaning was another concept highlighted by DENTAID, linked to the VITIS range of floss and tapes, Interprox brushes and Waterpik irrigators and coinciding with the launch of the latest model Waterpik WP-02 cordless express.
