Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) November 09, 2015
Bite Tech Inc., a privately held oral health company, announced today it has been awarded the ADA Seal of Acceptance for its CustMbite MVP mouthguards, making it the first athletic mouthguard to receive the Seal. The ADA’s Council of Scientific Affairs (CSA) said it awarded the Seal based on the finding that the product is an effective sports mouthguard that helps protect teeth from impact trauma, when used as directed.
The CustMbite MVP mouthguard, made by Bite Tech Inc., earned the ADA Seal by providing the council with data supporting the safety of the mouthguard material, and the results from a series of laboratory tests. “Awarding the Seal to an athletic mouthguard expands the Seal Program to new and emerging areas, which we need to do in order to provide more options for dentists and dental patients,” said ADA Council on Scientific Affairs chair Dr. Tom Hart, who is also the director of the ADA Foundation Dr. Anthony Volpe Research Center. “This will allow ADA experts to support new products that benefit the American public.” To earn the Seal, a company must also submit ingredient lists for review and approval and provide evidence that manufacturing and laboratory facilities meet ADA guidelines and ADA-developed dental standards.
This innovative mouthguard was co-created by Dr. Monroe Elkin, a New Jersey pharmacist and dentist, and Dr. Manese Rabeony, an Associate Professor of Polymer Chemistry at Rutgers University. “As a dentist, the ADA Seal tells consumers you can purchase this product and have confidence that you’re buying a safe, quality product. The Seal is the gold standard for safety and efficacy,” said Dr. Elkin.
“The CustMbite MVP mouthguard is used by thousands of athletes and in hundreds of university athletic programs across the United States. We are excited to partner with the ADA and proud to be a part of this significant achievement in athletic mouthguards,” said Jeff Padovan, Bite Tech’s CEO.
