Having Jaw Surgery or Wisdom Teeth Removed? Cool Jaw To The Rescue!


After jaw surgery or oral surgery, you often need to apply ice packs to your face on a regular basis for several days to help reduce swelling. This is especially true after wisdom teeth are removed. These handy, well-constructed face wraps do the trick. Cool Jaw Wraps are made of stretchy satin spandex material that is very soft to the touch. A special built-in pocket on each side holds an ice pack, so that you can ice both sides of your face while remaining hands-free.

The split top and tailored chin ensure a comfortable, slip-free fit, no matter the length of your hair. Two velcro closures at the top ensure a secure fit and offer a custom amount of compression to help reduce pain and swelling. The ice packs are large enough to cover the entire cheek area. The gel packs are reusable and the face wrap is machine washable.

The Cool Jaw wrap comes with 4 clear gel packs, which stay frozen and cold for about an hour when worn on your face. Keep 2 on your face, and 2 in the freezer, to ensure that one pair is always frozen and ready to use.

Why struggle with holding a ice pack to your face when you can have the convenience of Cool Jaw Wraps? Take a closer look at: http://www.dentakit.com/cooljaw.html

Capsule Case: The Perfect Place to Store Your Invisalign Aligners or Clear Retainers


Have you been looking for the perfect case to store your Invisalign clear aligner trays, or clear retainers? Well look no further! Capsule is a new concept in retainer care that makes it easier for you to wear your clear aligners.

Capsule is a storage case that doubles as an oral hygiene kit. It's divided into compartments: one for your aligners, and one for a travel-sized tube of toothpaste and travel toothbrush. Your aligner or clear retainer is held in place in its compartment by the friction of two silicone rails on the bottom of the case -- ensuring that your aligner won't slip and rattle around when the case is closed. (Toothpaste and toothbrush are included in the Capsule; clear aligner or retainer are not included -- they would be your own). The hinge opens flat, allowing you to place the Capsule case on any surface and ensure an hygienic area for your dental routine.

Great for travel, or to keep in your desk, backpack, briefcase, or purse! Check it out at: http://www.dentakit.com/caclalcakit.html

Braces Pain? Put a Jacket on Your Brackets! Great for Wrestlers, too!

At DentaKit.com we carry several lip protectors which cover your braces, and we're really excited about this new one: Bracket Jacket. It's the first boil-and-bite braces guard that is custom-formed just for your teeth. And better yet, it allows for tooth movement, so you won't have to worry about it messing up your treatment.



It covers both the front and back of your teeth and prevents discomfort caused by sharp brackets and wires. Great for lingual braces (on the back of the teeth)! This clear guard allows teeth to move, and leaves space to wear rubber bands.

It's really easy to custom fit the guard, and full instructions are included with the product, as well as the manufacturer's 800 phone number to call for assistance or questions.

Just heat the Bracket Jacket in hot water and press each tray to the teeth with braces to fit over and around the hardware. During daily wear, just peel Bracket Jacket off and then press it on to fit back into place.

When it's formed, the Bracket Jacket becomes relatively clear, like a clear aligner. You can occasionally eat with the Bracket Jacket in place, but it is not recommended on an everyday basis. You can wear Bracket Jacket for light contact sports (such as wrestling) as a mouth guard (it covers all biting surfaces; however, it does not protect from concussion). It's a great device to wear to protect your mouth when you sleep. And yes, it will work for lingual (behind the teeth) braces, with extra patience when forming the device.

Each package includes two trays (one for the top teeth and one for the bottom teeth) and full instructions. Bracket Jacket is manufactured from FDA-approved soft EVA material, and is free of BPA, phthalates, and latex. Buy two packages and save one for later if your teeth move months from now!

Lost or Broken Retainer? Don't Panic, Get Stay Tray!

We've all been there at one time or another: at the worst possible moment, your retainer (or your child's retainer) gets lost or broken. A new retainer can cost hundreds of dollars and take a week or two to get made at your dentist. What can you do in the mean time to protect your orthodontic investment?  Easy....just get Stay Tray!

Stay Tray is a temporary replacement retainer that you mold at home in hot water (thermoformed "boil and bite" technology). It uses a patented "two tray system" to help you form the tray properly in just minutes. After forming, you can trim the retainer with scissors for a totally comfortable fit.

The Stay Tray makes a white colored retainer, which is suitable to wear at home or overnight. The rigid white EVA material holds your teeth securely in their existing position while you wait for the new retainer to come from your dentist or orthodontist. It is not meant to wear for months on end as a new retainer; it is meant as a temporary replacement so that your teeth don't move while you wait for your dentist to make a new retainer for you.

Stray Tray comes with full instructions and an 800 phone number to call the manufacturer for advice or questions.

This product is made in the US by a high-quality dental company. It's a good idea to have one of these on hand, especially if your kids are wearing retainers. You never know when a retainer might get lost or broken. Check out Stay Tray at: http://www.dentakit.com/staytray.html

Floss Your Teeth In the Shower with ShowerBreeze

If you have braces, or just a complicated oral hygiene program, flossing can become a real inconvenience. Some people have found that it's more convenient to just do it in the shower every day. Fortunately, the good people at Oral Breeze have made that possible with their ShowerBreeze product.

ShowerBreeze works like a Waterpick®-type appliance, but attaches directly to your bathroom shower head! No more bulky noisy appliances to clutter up your countertop! Great for busy adults and kids! And unlike traditional countertop irrigators, this product is very quiet -- nobody else in your house will hear you using it!

The ShowerBreeze is easy to install. First, unscrew your shower head. Then attach the included adapter. Screw your shower head into the adapter. That's it! View the video to see the installation in action.

ShowerBreeze is a terrific product for people with braces, because it dislodges food particles quickly and easily, helping you to keep your teeth cleaner. It's also great for people with periodontal pockets or gum disease, because it gets under the gumline to help fight bacteria that causes periodontitus and gingivitus.

The ShowerBreeze is made to last, with valves constructed of chrome-plated brass. It comes with all hardware and detailed instructions, two tips (one yellow and one green), and a tip holder for your bathroom. Replacement tips are available. All of the OralBreeze products are made by Americans in a Veteran Owned and Operated Company.

Bracees - The New Braces Cover That's Better Than Dental Wax



Tired of putting on and taking off dental wax from your braces day after day? Then you might want to try this innovative new product. Bracees is a soft cover which fits over individual brackets, and stays on until you take it off. Created by a dentist, these stylish little covers simply slip over individual brackets. They can be worn when eating, drinking, and sleeping.

Bracees come in plain clear (for adults or anyone who just wants a plain bracket cover), or cute colors and designs for kids. Even the rubbery container that they come is cool!

This is one of the most useful and interesting new products we've seen for braces in a long time. Most braces covers tend to cover all of your teeth. Bracees is the first product we've seen that covers individual orthodontic brackets, so you can put them where they will help you the most.

Kids will love this product even if they don't use it for mouth sores -- as a fashion statement with different colors and graphics, such as hearts, musical notes, peace signs, dogs, and cats.  This product is definitely a win-win, and worth checking out!
