Crystalmark offers an attractive, three color patient education brochure that has been specifically designed to convey the basic elements and attributes of air abrasion to dental patients. It features simple diagrams and accompanying text that explains how and why the dental office implements the air abrasion technology in both diagnostic and restorative applications.
The text explains air abrasion's function in diagnosis of occult pit and fissure decay and the multiple advantages of this treatment modality over conventional high speed "drill" dentistry.
Many dental practices will buy 500, 1,000, or 2,000 for the waiting room, as a promotional mailer, or as a handout for teaching children about painless dentistry in schools or health fairs. This is a tremendous tool for promoting your practice in your community by publicizing painless dentistry.
Patient Education Video:
One of the best ways to get your message across to your patients is by way of a videotape. Dr. Jim Caine has produced a wonderfully entertaining and informative patient education videotape designed to give your patients the salient features of air abrasion. The videotape covers diagnostic as well as treatment aspects of air abrasion, emphasizing the benefits it provides. It demonstrates how air abrasion functions and why it is such a wonderful diagnostic adjunct in the dental office.
The videotape features simple to understand diagrams together with actual photographs of hidden pit and fissure decay in several molars. Cross sections of the teeth demonstrates how traditional explorer probing of the pits and fissures would not have diagnosed the existent decay process. The tape is professionally narrated and flows very well. It is by far the most efficient method of getting your air abrasion mission statement across to your patients.
