THE DENTAL ADVISOR awards recognize quality products and equipment, taking into account clinical and evidence-based research to honor the best products. SOVA Night Guard was chosen as the category winner for the second consecutive year.
"With hundreds of products to review each year, the task to pick the best of the best is not simple. Our editorial board spends weeks debating, discussing, and voting on products that fit our criteria for innovation, quality and excellence in each category," – said Dr. Sabiha Bunek, Dental Advisor's Editor-in-Chief in the 2017 Dental Award Products press release.
Designed in Saline, MI by Akervall Technologies Inc., SOVA is the thinnest, most comfortable over the counter (OTC) night grinding guard on the market. SOVA offers an immediate solution for dental patients who present with acute pain from teeth grinding.
"We were able to find a niche in the dental market as a temporary therapeutic device for palliative treatment of dental pain,"- said Sassa Akervall, CEO of Akervall Technologies, makers of SOVA Night Guard. "We are proud, for the second year in a row, to have SOVA Night Guard recognized by the Dental Advisor as the product category leader. This recognition further solidifies SOVA's reputation in the marketplace and expands the innovation and benefits of SOVA Night Guards to a wider group of dental professionals and online consumers."
ABOUT SOVA NIGHT GUARDS
SOVA Night Guards are built on the combination of polymer science and impact absorption engineering. The polymer is a hard, non-compressible thermoplastic material with unique properties: soft and pliable when placed in water warmed to 140 F, it fits snuggly around teeth, hardening in minutes. The material dissipates impact forces from teeth grinding through the surface of the guard and away from the teeth. The guard is thinner than any other mouth guard, enabling wearers to drink and speak during use; the guard's chemical memory allows up to 20 re-molds for adjustments to changing teeth or to improve comfort.
SOVA Night Guards are manufactured by Akervall Technologies Inc. (ATI), headquartered in Saline, MI. ATI is comprised of a management core, manufacturing facility and R&D division, where a dedicated team of world-renowned scientists works tirelessly to invent new technologies in mouth protection. The company was awarded the NSF Grant and the Advanced Technologies Grant at Accelerate Michigan Competition and named one of Michigan's Top 50 companies to Watch in 2014.
