Dr Mark's HyGenie satisfies updated Therapeutic Guidelines for denture hygiene and storage

As published in the December 2019 Therapeutic Guidelines (TG) Version 3, page 275: Dental Professionals should advise their patients to "regularly clean their dentures with warm water, mild soap and a soft bristled brush, twice a day, to remove food particles and plaque".

Every dental professional in Australia and New Zealand knows that already.

However, those guidelines also changed its recommendation for storing dentures, now advising patients to "store their dentures in a dry environment overnight after cleaning them. Allowing the cleaned denture to dry out at night is more effective for reducing yeast colonisation and plaque accumulation, compared with both denture cleansers and water" is states.

Developed in Australia by Dr Mark Wotherspoon, Dr Mark's HyGenie® is the perfect denture care solution that perfectly aligns with this recommendation.

Dr Mark's HyGenie and DentalFresh® are world firsts. An all-in-one system designed and manufactured for one purpose: cleaning, storing and protecting all types of removable dental appliances. Every aspect of the new Dr Mark's HyGenie system embraces the latest Therapeutic Guidelines for denture hygiene. The company believes you should too.

As a committed dental professional, you do your job by fitting your patients with perfect dental appliances, and you quietly know, despite your best explanations and efforts, the majority of those patients will not follow your cleaning and care guidance. Dr Mark's can help with that.

By recommending, including or adding Dr Mark's HyGenie, you simplify your job and make it easier for your patients to do their job at home. Easy to explain and quick to demonstrate, Dr Mark's HyGenie helps ensure your patient's dental appliance is well cared for at home, satisfies the latest Australian TG recommendations for optimal hygiene and storage and, ultimately does what you intended it to do.

Dr Mark's HyGenie launched in Australia online in November with a web shop dedicated exclusively to Dental Professionals. The company is set to launch in New Zealand in similar fashion in early 2020.
