We recently received the DryShield (Dryshield) isolation system. What makes this product unique? It is an all in one system! Firstly, it has an attachment that connects to your high-volume suction line. Secondly, the mouthpieces are a combination of high-volume suction, saliva ejector, tongue shield and airway protection. Finally, it contains a bite block to keep the patient open while isolating.
What were the thoughts of Dental Advisor’s Initial Insights Team?
- There are a multitude of options for sizes, both disposable and autoclavable.
- It is important to read instructions on installing the device to the HVE for the first time.
- Having a sizing tool that is autoclavable would be nice so mouthpieces are not wasted trying different sizes.
Look for more information about this product in an upcoming issue of Dental Advisor!
