There's a new dental product that is designed to quickly and easily assist denture wearers with the unpleasant tasks of removing and cleaning their dentures and its associated adhesive.
Developed by Brian Williams of Decatur Illinois, the 3-in-1 Dental Tool, as it's called, is about the same length as a disposable razor and could be a potential replacement for commercial denture adhesives which some dental health experts say can cause zinc poisoning.
Williams inspiration for developing the tools was actually his own experience with dentures, in particular when he first got them and found it almost impossible to remove them. In addition, trying to remove the adhesive loose from the dentures made him gag.
"I was issued directions and a sample of the Fixodent," he said. "I started thinking: I can't do this every single day of my life. It wasn't working."
This tool comes in two versions, one each for the retail market and one for the medical supply market, and is particularly and useful for those who have to remove dentures from other people, such as medical personnel in nursing homes who generally have to do this with their hands. With a patient suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's, for example, medical personnel risk getting bitten by the patient, something which this tool eliminates.
The 3-in-1 Dental Tool is sold by his company Here to Help Products Inc., a name he chose because the reason he invents is to help others. "I just want to assist people," Williams said. "It's all in the name. We're here to help, and all the products we will make will be biodegradable and as earth-friendly as possible."
The fact that Williams device makes cleaning dentures easier doesn't hurt, either.
