HOW OLD IS YOUR DENTAL HEADREST PILLOW?

HOW OLD IS YOUR DENTAL HEADREST PILLOW?

How old is your dental headrest pillow?
 
If you can’t recall, it’s probably time to replace. The average life-cycle of a typical memory foam dental cushion seems to range around 3 to 5 years.
 
A dental headrest with better-wear characteristics? Choose MediPosture brand and follow these tips:
 
1.  CLEANING SOLUTIONS: For maximum dental headrest life, choose an infection-control solution that is ammonium-based. Alcohol-based solutions tend to shorten the life-cycle of dental cushions by “drying” out the cover.
 
2.   MEMORY FOAM DENSITY: Choose a quality dental headrest that features a higher-density memory foam. Denser memory foam has a greater resistance to breaking-down from repeated use. Look for memory foams that are rated with a 5-pound or 6-pound density.
 
3.    FIXTURE STRAPS: Consider a dental headrest that allows for repeated and infinite adjustment to the dental chair. Avoid a fixed length back strap, it will over-stretch with repeated use. 
 
Consider switching to MediPosture dental headrests if your older dental headrest needs replacing. MediPosture uses higher-specification materials and professional features that help contribute to a longer-lasting dental headrest. Try one and see the quality difference!
