Burlington, MA, August 23, 2010 – Keystone Dental, an oral healthcare company focused on restoring smiles, today announced that DynaMatrix™ Extracellular Membrane, the company’s soft tissue regeneration product, will be featured on an upcoming episode of Health Heroes on the Discovery Channel.
The episode will focus on innovative products in oral health, and will highlight DynaMatrix as an alternative to using a soft tissue graft taken from the roof of the patient’s mouth to preserve teeth by treating gum recession. The DynaMatrix episode of the Discovery Channel’s Health Heroes will first air on August 26th at 7AM EST/PST.
“The benefits of using DynaMatrix as an alternative to tissue taken from the patient are that the clinician can perform the procedure more quickly, there is less pain, bleeding and swelling for the patient, and the material is recognized by the body as natural tissue which leads to predictable clinical outcomes,” said John Russo, DDS, who is featured in the segment.
“We are very excited about the patient benefits of DynaMatrix, and are thrilled that the Discovery Channel has selected this product for Health Heroes,” said Daniel Levangie, President and CEO of Keystone Dental. “It highlights Keystone Dental’s commitment to bringing innovative solutions to the dental space.”
