Using Dental Products to Make Masks

One of the most stressful parts of this pandemic, is trying to find the appropriate gear to protect ourselves with, when we get back into the office.

We have been told that the N95 masks are the gold standard of mouth and nose protection.

But as everyone knows, these masks have been very difficult to come by.

Dentists have had a ton of time to figure out how to protect ourselves.

For years, the dental profession has been working with scanners and with cad cam technology (3D printing).

One of the most important parts of these N95 masks has been the tight fit around the face. It should create a tight seal. The experts recommend “the peppermint test.”

You could have peppermint in the room and if the mask is properly fitted, you should not be able to smell the peppermint.

I have one N95 mask that I wear whenever I leave the house. I can say with confidence that my mask is not that well fitted. I am still able to smell intense smells.

One of my friends has come up with a pretty ingenious design, a custom fitted frame. One that fits the face intimately. This is how he does it…

He takes a facial scan of the person’s face with an iPhone10 or higher. Then he sends that file to his 3D printer and designs a custom fitted frame. This fitted frame is placed over a level 3 surgical mask, which are easier to find, and fastened tightly to the face.

This will create a tight seal and help protect our health care workers.

If you would like to get one of these frames made, please message me and I’ll put you in contact with the labs that are designing these frames.

I love how America is coming together to figure out great solutions.

Floss like a madman!Emilio “Mask Hookup” Couret

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
