GIBBSTOWN, N.J. – Announced at the turn of the new year were The Dental Advisor’s annual Product Awards, one of the most respected awards presenters in the dental industry for their evidence-based clinical and laboratory research.
At the top of the Prophy Paste category was once again Gelato Prophy Paste, marking 2016 as the fourth consecutive year Gelato has won Top Prophy Paste amongst dental professionals.
Gelato, produced from the New Jersey-based manufacturer Keystone Industries, was evaluated by 35 professional consultants in 2500 different uses. At the end of the study, Gelato Prophy Paste received a 91% clinical rating. Sixty-three percent of consultants said they would switch to using Gelato Prophy Paste, while 80% said they would recommend it.
Consultants open-ended commented on the paste included such phrases as, “does not splatter”, “easy to rinse”, and “cups are color-coded and easy to open”.
Keystone’s paste joins elite company as one of very few products to win four years consecutively (2013, 2014, 2015, and now 2016), but has done so because of their celebrated splatter-free, 1.23% fluoride ion application. Gelato is tough enough for high-luster polishing and stain removal, and remains gentle enough on the enamel with minimal enamel loss.
The paste comes in boxes of 200 individual disposable cups for convenient use. The disposable cups also eliminate cross contamination and include a prophy ring for ease of application on the patient’s teeth. For more options, the paste is also available in 6 ounce (exports only) and 12 ounce jars.
Available in four different grits (fine, medium, coarse, and x-course), Gelato will take care of your various stain removal needs. Typically, hygienists use the fine grit for routine use and the medium grit gives a little more stain removal power. The coarse paste is required for removing moderate to heavy stains. No matter the job, Gelato Prophy Paste provides exactly what dental professionals need.
Keystone Industries continues to put forward the largest assortment of great-tasting Gelato flavors such as Pina Colada, and Orange Sherbet. The paste line also has Mint, Cherry, Bubble Gum and Raspberry flavors for a plethora of flavor options to satisfy picky clients. The individual cups are clearly labeled for quick retrieval and application.
Overall, Keystone is proud of this highly regarded review from The Dental Advisor. As a company that strives to create the best quality products at the best price, Keystone is proud to say Gelato Prophy Paste has hit the mark with quality and price.
Statistics and feedback are what gave Gelato such a high rating and awards four years running now, but it also speaks wonders for the high-quality work Keystone Industries puts into their American-made dental products. Across the board, dentists and lab technicians alike, give Gelato and the various amounts of other products great feedback.
