SEPA

 

The SEPA oral health and periodontology meeting, which took place in the Seville Exhibition and Convention Centre, welcomed over 5,000 dentistry professionals, who were able to discover DENTAID’s latest oral health innovations.

Perio·Aid, the oral antiseptic indicated for the treatment, maintenance and control of periodontal and peri-implant diseases, announced to SEPA that, as of May, it will present its all-new Perio·Aid 0.20 Bioadhesive Gel in dental clinics. The new VITIS children’s range, for all stages of growth, also stirred interest among the attendees who were provided with a private cosmos to learn about the unique features of each of the seven products that make up the range. Also displayed were VITIS sonic electric toothbrushes, Waterpik water flossers and the VITIS gingival and Perio·Aid product lines.

In parallel, DENTAID, in its commitment to science and scientific research, sponsored different scientific conferences by renowned doctors including Jan Derks and Giovanni Salvi, in ​​their lectures on the clinical management of peri-implant pathologies, Dr Patricia Solano, on comprehensive dental hygiene in paediatric dentistry and Dr Francisco José Enrile on new technologies for basic periodontal treatment.

Meanwhile, with the aim of increasing social awareness of the importance of dental hygiene and the implications of gingival health on overall health, the “Caring for your gums” dental check-up campaign took place in the Santa Justa station of Seville over the three days of the meeting. After the check-up, a VITIS gingival dental kit was given out for home prevention.

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!

Autor: Dentaid Inside

Dental professionals gathered in Malaga for the Annual Meeting of the Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration. Over three intense days of conferences, world-renowned experts in the field of Periodontology shared their knowledge and brought participants up-to-date on issues related to the field of dentistry.

Within the established scientific program, DENTAID sponsored lectures addressed to dentists, focused on the Systemic and psychosocial effects of periodontal treatment, by Dr. Filippo Graziani and Update on the home treatment of dentinal hypersensitivity, by Dr. Gil Loscos.

As for lectures directed to dental hygienists, Managing xerostomia in the dental clinic, by Dr. Xavier Calvo and The latest developments in oral hygiene by brushing with sonic technology, delivered by Dr. Gerardo Gómez, were the two core topics addressed by DENTAID.

Dentists and hygienists learn the benefits of the sonic technology offered by 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.

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.
