DryDent® Sublingual - 2nd best innovation at the Clinical Innovations Conference.

May, 2016

We are happy to announce that Directa’s new product DryDent Sublingual received the Highly Commended Status as 2nd best innovation at the UK’s prestigious Clinical Innovations Conference on May 21st, 2016.

DryDent Sublingual, a unique product that collects and controls the saliva produced by the sublingual glands as well as by the submandibular glands. Dry Dent Sublingual's super-absorbent qualities provide a dry oral enviroment during a variety of procedures, while its smooth, soft material design reduces uncomfortable swallowing reflexes. Salivia ejoctors can be placed over the product, minimizing uncomfortable suctions of soft tissue.

 

 

 

 

DryDent® - For optimal moisture control

February, 2016

Directa launches the new DryDent line of products, the first saliva absorbers featuring both optimal moisture control AND great comfort. DryDent takes moisture control to the next level. Soft, comfortable and highly efficient DryDent Parotid and DryDent Sublingual enhance saliva absorption and substitute cotton rolls with thin but highly absorbent pads with soft edges. Ideal every time you need a dryer working environment. The first and only absorbent designed to collect saliva under the tongue, DryDent Sublingual also enhances patient’s comfort when using saliva ejectors and x ray holders. Both models come in two sizes, small and large for optimal anatomic adaptation.

A dry oral environment is extremely important for a variety of treatments like impression taking, cementation, orthodontic and filling procedures etc. Using the new super absorbent DryDent Parotid and DryDent Sublingual together with ordinary saliva ejectors significantly improves moisture control procedures and secures high quality dentistry. 

DryDent Parotid is a saliva absorbent placed directly against the parotid saliva glands where the ducts open. Saliva is optimally absorbed giving the best possibilities for a successful treatment. DryDent Parotid contains no binders and has very soft edges that cause no harm to the oral mucosa. Patients report a feeling of a silky smooth surface. On the lingual side, the saliva absorber protects the operation field from moisture. This double function is a result of the new super absorbent material and the unique foam production method.

Dry Dent Parotid keeps its shape facilitating an open operation field throughout a longer time.Many ducts from the salivary glands open sublingually, resulting in a difficult moisture situation. To facilitate sublingual moisture control Directa designed DryDent Sublingual, a totally new and unique product, the first absorbent pad designed for optimal and comfortable collection of all saliva produced by the sublingual glands as well as the submandibular glands.

DryDent Sublingual does not only perform the perfect saliva control, it also improves comfort for the patient. A saliva ejector placed above this saliva absorber minimizes pain, noise and has a soothing effect due to reduced swallowing reflexes. DryDent Sublingual is very appreciated by patients and kind to the oral mucosa. The absorbent material is weaved through a new method that gives a feeling of a silky smooth surface. 75% of the dental teams interviewed in Västra Götaland region, Sweden answered ”yes” to the question whether a DryDent Sublingual placed under the saliva ejector simplifies their work.  

 

 

 

A PRO does it all.

- 2015

Directa’s new Prophy Paste PRO is increasingly gaining popularity among dental professionals worldwide. On healthy patients without heavy discolorations, ProphyPaste PRO will both remove stains and polish for a smooth tooth surface as its grains degrade from coarse to fine. Moreover the paste has unique remineralizing and desensitizing features. SEM images taken within a new study from Karolinska University showed that ProphyPaste PRO was the only paste to show relevant differences in particle size after use, implying that you only need one prophy paste such as ProphyPaste PRO’s that transitions from cleansing to polishing.
