Stratford, CT – During power instrumentation dental procedures, not only can it be difficult to effectively clear the field of fluid and debris, there also exists a risk of aerosol contamination. Palmero Healthcare, the leader in dental safety eyewear and a HuFriedyGroup subsidiary, has launched an innovative new device to solve this common issue.
The Palmero HVESolo™ (Ref# 1808S) is a disposable evacuation tip uniquely designed for clinicians performing power instrumentation (air polishing/ultrasonic) procedures without an assistant. During power instrumentation procedures, bacteria and viruses can spread rapidly through splatter and aerosols, with dental providers being exposed to tens of thousands of bacteria per cubic meter.
The use of an HVE (high-volume evacuator) has been shown to reduce the contamination arising from the operative site by more than 90% , minimizing the risk of cross-contamination and protecting clinicians from infection caused by exposure to blood, saliva and respiratory droplets.
In addition to protecting patients and clinicians from infection, the Palmero HVESolo ™ makes evacuation more effective and more comfortable. The lightweight design and short (2.5”) length allow clinicians to easily and comfortably guide evacuation along with powered instrumentation throughout the mouth, using their non-dominant hand. Moreover, the proper venting, wide scoop tip and rounded edges maximize suction and improve visibility while enhancing patient comfort. Compatible with all high-volume evacuation lines, the Palmero HVESolo™ is a convenient, comfortable, and efficient device to improve the safety and effectiveness of dental procedures.
