Top Industry Innovation Award for 2023 Recognizes the Dental Pain Eraser’s Pioneering Pain-Free Orthodontic Approach
ORLANDO, Fla., September 15, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Sakowitz Smiles Orthodontics is taking a revolutionary step in the world of orthodontic care by incorporating cutting-edge technology known as the Dental Pain Eraser. This innovation is poised to transform the orthodontic treatment experience, making it more comfortable and virtually pain-free for patients.
In the realm of healthcare, orthodontists and dentofacial orthopedists often serve as the first professionals to introduce younger patients to real, lasting physical discomfort. However, Sakowitz Smiles Orthodontics believes that this should not be the defining image of orthodontic care for children and adults alike.
“We are committed to creating positive memories for our patients,” says Dr. Scott Sakowitz, founder and lead orthodontist at Sakowitz Smiles Orthodontics. “We understand that orthodontic treatment can be challenging, especially for children. Our goal is to ensure that the pain associated with orthodontic procedures becomes a thing of the past.”
“The Dental Pain Eraser is a groundbreaking technology that allows us to provide immediate relief from soft tissue pain and general orthodontic discomfort. Applying this remarkable device for just 10-15 seconds along the root surface can dramatically reduce the discomfort experienced during orthodontic visits. From wire activations to separator placements to aligner adjustments, every step of the journey now feels significantly more comfortable.”
“The relief is real, and it’s transformative,” adds Dr. Sakowitz. “The Dental Pain Eraser isn’t just remarkably effective; it’s possibly the fastest, easiest, and only drug-free method for reducing soft tissue pain in the orthodontic arena.”
In a recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, 84% of the subjects who used the Dental Pain Eraser experienced pain relief in less than 2 minutes. An astonishing 44 out of 45 subjects reported experiencing orthodontic pain relief, often lasting for at least 48 hours.
The American Association of Orthodontists recognized the significant impact of the Dental Pain Eraser by awarding it the top industry innovation award for 2023. This prestigious accolade underscores the device’s effectiveness in making orthodontic treatment more comfortable and pain-free.
The introduction of the Dental Pain Eraser at Sakowitz Smiles Orthodontics signifies their commitment to delivering the highest level of care to their patients. It is a significant step toward making orthodontic treatment a more comfortable and pain-free experience.

The Impact of Semaglutide on Cosmetic Procedures: An Insight into Emerging Trends
HOUSTON, September 15, 2023 (Newswire.com)
Over the last few years, the landscape of plastic surgery has seen remarkable changes. Dr. Robert Kratschmer, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Houston, sheds light on how the popularization of the drug Semaglutide is affecting patient choices in cosmetic procedures.
“Two years ago, liposuction and fat transfer were the procedures that dominated patient interest,” says Dr. Kratschmer. “While they remain popular, the rise of Semaglutide for weight management has led to a notable increase in other procedures, like panniculectomy, thigh lift, arm lift, and neck lift surgeries.”
Semaglutide, originally developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, has been growing in prominence for its off-label use in weight management. This has had ripple effects in the plastic surgery community.
Dr. Kratschmer explains, “Semaglutide has offered a non-surgical option for weight loss, which is changing the kinds of procedures people are seeking. Many of my patients have successfully used it for weight loss, but are then left with excess skin that they want to address. As a result, we’re seeing a considerable uptick in surgeries designed to remove excess skin and contour the body.”
This shift is significant, not only for prospective patients but also for the medical community at large. The rising interest in these procedures suggests that people are becoming increasingly conscious of comprehensive body transformations that focus on both weight loss and body contouring.
“Every medical advancement impacts patient choices,” Dr. Kratschmer says. “As physicians, we must adapt and continue to offer the best care based on emerging trends and technologies. It’s an exciting time in the field of plastic surgery, and I’m eager to see how this evolves in the years to come.”
For those considering plastic surgery, Dr. Kratschmer advises consultations to discuss individual needs and options. “Patient care is always our utmost priority. Our consultations aim to guide patients through the variety of choices now available, so they can make informed decisions that align with their goals,” he concludes.
