Dental Tribune Canada Edition No.1, 2016

. . A14 INDUSTRY Dental Tribune Canada Edition | March 2016 By Isolite Systems Staff Dental isolation is one of the most common and ongoing challenges in dentistry. The mouth is a difficult environment in which to work. It is wet and dark, the tongue is in the way, and there is the added humid- ity of breath, which all make dent- istry more difficult. Proper dental isolation and mois- ture control are two often over- looked factors that can affect the longevity of dental work — espe- cially with today’s advanced tech- niques and materials. Leading dental isolation methods have long been the rubber dam — or manual suction and retraction with the aid of cotton rolls and dry angles. Both of these methods are time and labor intensive, and not particu- larly pleasant for the patient. Enter Isolite Systems. Its dental isolation systems de- liver an isolated, humidity- and moisture-free work- ing field as dry as the rubber dam but with significant advantages, including better visibility, greater access, improved patient safety and a leap forward in comfort. Plus, it allows dentists to work in two quadrants at a time. The key to the technology is the “Isolation Mouth- piece.” Compatible with Isolite’s full line of products, the mouthpiece is the heart of the system. It is specific- ally designed and engineered around the anatomy and morphology of the mouth to accommodate every pa- tient, from children to the elderly. The single-use Isolation Mouthpieces are now avail- able in six sizes and position in seconds to provide complete, comfortable tongue and cheek retraction while also shielding the airway to prevent inadvertent foreign body aspiration. Constructed out of a polymeric material that is soft- er than gingival tissue, the mouthpieces provide sig- nificant safety advantages, and their ease-of-use can boost your practice’s efficiency, results and patient satisfaction. Isolite Systems provides three state-of-the-art product solutions for every practice, every operatory: Isolite, illuminated dental isolation system; Isodry, a non-illuminated dental isolation; and the new Iso- vac, dental isola- tion adapter. Using the Isola- tion Mouthpieces, all three dental iso- lation products iso- late upper and lower quadrants simultaneously while providing continuous hands-free suction. This allows a positive experience where the patient no longer has the sensation of drowning in saliva/water during a procedure, and the practitioner can precisely con- trol the amount of suction/humidity in the patient’s mouth. Isolite Systems’ dental isolation is recommended for the majority of dental procedures where oral control and dental isolation in the working field is desired. It has been favorably reviewed by leading independent evaluators and is recommended for procedures where good isolation is critical to quality dental outcomes.

For use with all of VOCO’s composites (Grandio, GrandioSO, x-tra fil) and VOCO’s new nano-ORMOCER Admira Fusion, the new ISO-pak comes as an air- tight, individually sealed foil that includes the prod- From VOCO: Infection and climate-control packaging uct name, expiration date, shade, cure time, storage information and lot number imprinted on each indi- vidual unit. The ISO-pak will maximize the infection-control efforts of each office, saving the offices time and money by making the disinfection of each single- unit-dose capsule obsolete. An added ISO-pak benefit is humidity control. All encapsulated composites and ORMOCERS on the mar- ket have the tendency to get stickier with increased levels of humidity or stiffer in low humidity levels. The new ISO-pak is an air-tight packaging solution that will provide the clinician the same consistency of VOCO restoratives for each use whether they are located in the dry winter arctic air of Canada or in the Air-tight, individually sealed foil saves time and money VOCO’S ISO-pak is designed to maximize the infection-control efforts of each office, saving the offices time and money by making the disinfection of each single-unit-dose capsule obsolete.
