Ensure the Safety and Comfort of Your Patients

DryShield isolation systems provide protection from harmful aerosols while saving time and money.

Figure 1. DryShield is an all-in-one isolation system.

The DryShield system combines the tasks of a high-suction evacuator, saliva ejector, bite block, tongue shield, and oral pathway protector. Made of soft, flexible material, it conforms to a patient’s mouth, making for a more comfortable procedure. It’s so easy to use that dental hygienists can reduce patient stress and chair time during procedures such as scaling and root planing (SRP) and air polishing.

While greatly reducing the emission of harmful aerosols, DryShield also lowers the amount of time spent on procedures by up to 40%, allowing you more opportunity to educate your patients.

Why DryShield?

Replacing your current isolation system with DryShield provides a variety of benefits, including:

  • Enabling completion of procedures 25% to 40% faster*
  • Drastically reducing harmful aerosols
  • Maintaining a dry field
  • Preventing aspiration of foreign objects
  • Protecting patients’ soft tissue
  • Improving visibility during procedures, allowing for two-quadrant dentistry
  • Allowing for optimal ergonomics
  • Saving your office up to 82% in consumables costs when compared to similar products*
