  • Mouth-Mate
    Mouth-Mate improves hygiene for any patient by helping the patient retract anywhere in the mouth while they brush. This 2 handed brushing technique improves visibility, access and focus for patients....

  • Mouth-Mate is a novel approach to brushing as it is a two handed technique where the patient holds Mouth-Mate as a retractor while the patient brushes. Mouth-Mate is the first patented toothbrush aid that provides easier access, comfort, visibility and most important additional focus on hygiene. We did a 700 patient study on this technique and had a 92% compliance. Patients benefitting from our retraction and brushing technique include oral surgeries (implant, wisdom teeth, etc.), periodontal procedures, orthodontics, pediatric (moms brushing and retracting young children), Lichen Planus/Pathology, elder care (care givers retracting while brushing their patient), special needs, and cancer patients going through treatment who have sores, etc. The technique works well for a  consumer brushing and retracting on their own AND anyone brushing another individual (i.e. care givers, elder care, special needs, young children). Sherri Lukes, Susan Wingrove and others have highlighted our new technique. We originally designed Mouth-Mate as a protection technique a couple years ago and after further research and field feedback, we have evolved the concept to mainly focus on retraction, brushing and improving the connect into the home for dental offices. This is what we are talking about at UOR… Motive the patients to take an active part in their hygiene and the missing element is access in the mouth. Mouth-Mate allows the patient to stop guessing if she/he is reaching areas in the mouth and see what they are doing. Be more accountable, which obviously helps the dental team.

  • Scan-Mate
    Scan-Mate is the first non-reflective and autoclavable retraction instrument that has a unique bendable handle and soft tip that is ideal for any procedure....

  • Scan-Mate is the first non-reflective retraction instrument with a unique bendable handle and comfortable tip, which makes retraction more easier for clinician and more comfortable for patient. Autoclavable 60 cycles. Scan-Mate can be used for scanning, surgeries, any procedures. See below, Dr. Richard Martin using it for his scanning and Dr. Jim Stein using Scan-Mate for his guided surgeries.  Offices are having Scan-Mate as their retraction tool in their rooms as a nice option compared to the mirror or Minnesota retractor as you will find it very gentle on the tissue. Offices are placing Scan-Mate in their rooms, surgical kits, hygiene kits as it is a comfortable instrument for retraction. We want to position Scan-Mate in this sense since we are already seeing offices use the instrument for many procedures in addition to scanning.

    • Replaced once per month as you will notice the unique bendable handle will eventually weaken. If used twice per day similar to a mirror, this turns out to be .30 cents per patient over a month since it is reusable instrument. It is recommended to be replaced once per month.
    • Patented bendable handle with soft tip improving retraction for the 2nd molars to the front lips area and other challenging areas — tissue issues in lower distal, retracting the tongue, etc. Keep in mind that Scan-Mate can be used with Optragate if an office is already using this device as the tongue still needs retracting and tissue can be an issue with Optragate in some patients.
    • Ideal for any retraction needs in your office. It is the perfect instrument for the hygienist and dental team.
