At Country Park Dental Practice we can use an isolation mouthpiece to make treatment as comfortable as possible. It is especially beneficial for patients who struggle to keep their mouth open during treatment or who do not like the feel of water building up in the throat. We trail products ourselves to ensure they are comfortable for the patient before using them.
Other benefits include –
1) Tongue and cheek retraction and protection: Constructed from an elastomeric material that is softer than gingival tissue, the Isolite® Mouthpiece shields the tongue and cheek, providing an added measure of protection from injury by handpiece or other dental instruments.
2) Airway protection: The airway is protected, preventing inadvertent foreign body aspiration.
3) Visible airway: The clear mouthpiece provides visibility to the airway for better patient monitoring.
