At Docklands Dental Studio, we strive to improve patient’ experience and comfort during treatment. We recently incorporated Isolite system in our practice to facilitate isolation in the mouth, increase patient’s comfort, and increase the quality of work.
The following is an excerpt from www.isolitesystems.com
The key to the technology is the Isolation Mouthpiece. Isolite’s proprietary and patented Mouthpiece has been specifically designed and engineered around the anatomy and morphology of the mouth to accommodate every patient, from children to the elderly. It is constructed out of a polymeric material that is softer than gingival tissue for patient comfort, and it has excellent optical qualities. Its safety advantages and ease of use will improve efficiency, results, and patient satisfaction.
When the Isolation Mouthpiece is put in place, the patient’s cheek and tongue are automatically retracted and protected, resulting in an immediate decrease in the risk of patient injury. The Mouthpiece obturates the entrance to the throat, minimizing the chance of debris aspiration. This makes the patient more comfortable and provides the additional benefit of being able to monitor the patient’s airway. The Mouthpiece’s thick construction provides an extra layer of protection from dental instruments and controls the patient’s tongue. The patient can comfortably rest their jaw thanks to the built-in bite block, and you have free access to both the upper and lower quadrants. And because the Mouthpiece is single-use, patient cross-contamination is eliminated. In addition, the Mouthpiece has bilateral, 360° evacuation to keep the field dry and reduce humidity.
When sized correctly, patients experience increased comfort. It gives patients a place to rest their jaw and hence no longer need to worry about their tongue or cheek being injured resulting feeling more relaxed.
