Standard HVE tips are effective and comfortable to use, but can sometimes cause discomfort to the patient. The hard plastic can create pressure in sensitive areas of the gums. Safe-Vac is an HVE tip that has a rigid but cushioned end, designed to cause less discomfort. It comes in two varieties: Standard or Screened. The Standard Safe-Vac is similar to normal HVE tips, with the addition of the soft green end. The Screened Safe-Vac comes with a small screen just inside the opening to catch debris such as fillings or tooth fragments.
- I really like the idea of using the screened HVE tip during certain procedures to catch debris.
- It genuinely feels softer in my mouth and doesn’t poke at all.
- Looking forward to having cleaner traps!
