Finnish health technology group Koite Health will participate in the upcoming third edition of the Igienista Dentale 3.0 (Dental Hygienist 3.0) congress on March 4, 2023, in Rome, Italy. The now sold-out congress will return to the prestigious venue of the Tor Vergata University in Rome after a break since 2020 due to the COVID pandemic.
The Igienista Dentale 3.0 event is focused primarily on dental hygiene professionals. The congress comes only shortly before Germany's IDS Cologne event where Koite Health will also showcase its Lumoral-method – an innovative technology designed to enhance oral home care for the prevention and treatment of gum diseases and dental caries.
– Our goal is to increase the visibility of the Lumoral brand and identify potential commercial partners, says Koite Health's Chief Commercial Officer Tero Pasanen.
– Italy is an important market for Lumoral. We aim to expand to some of the largest nations in the European Union as fast as possible. This way we can offer our European customers access to better oral hygiene. Through our expansion we seek to give patients who suffer from periodontitis a chance to stop the progression of the disease and to help tackle the ever-growing problem of peri-implantitis, Pasanen adds.
Lumoral will be represented at the Italian event by Italian dental hygienist professional Gianfranco Panzironi.
Panzironi has written a scientific paper titled "Home photodynamic therapy as a means of prevention for biofilm control" that explores the role of dental plaque in causing oral problems and the benefits of Lumoral in prevention of oral problems.
– Prevention is the pillar against oral diseases and compliance with correct oral hygiene techniques is essential to preserve the normal microbiome and maintain the health of the oral cavity. Among the new technologies that allow the patient to control the biofilm comfortably and effectively, a device for the home application of antibacterial photodynamic therapy stands out.
Lumoral is a cutting-edge medical device that is designed to improve oral hygiene and significantly improve oral health. Lumoral offers anti-inflammatory treatment for various groups of patients – even those with difficult-to-treat oral conditions such as severe gum disease, and periodontitis. Lumoral is scientifically proven to be the best available home care treatment for periodontal patients and implant maintenance.
IDS 2023 will be organised from 14 to 18 of March in Messe Cologne. Koite Health recently signed a distribution agreement with white cross GmbH, a German distribution and training company specializing in oral health prevention. Following the agreement white cross will focus its marketing efforts on over 55.000 dentistry professionals in the German market to promote the use of Lumoral.
