“The DryShield makes dentistry easier not only for myself, but also for my patients and assistants. I use the DryShield on procedures including fillings, crowns, and bridges. It saves a lot of time with patients that tend to move their tongues often, and we find that it works great on kids! It makes dental procedures more efficient and helps keep the patients comfortable. It is also convenient that the mouthpieces are autoclavable!”
“I have been a supporter of isolation devices like DryShield from the beginning. Now that DryShield created a mouthpiece that can be sterilized, I use it all day to complete procedures like hygiene, composites, extractions, implant placement, and crowns. The mouthpiece is amazing; it sterilizes and keeps its crystal clear appearance. The quality and quantity of my dental services have only increased, yet my stress and frustration with isolation has vanished. It takes 4-handed dentistry to 6- or 8-handed dentistry comparatively.”
“Thank you so much for bringing this wonderful product into our practice. I use it for crowns and filling procedures. I also have my hygienist using it for sealants. I’ve only used it a few times, but it looks fine after the autoclave. For now, I am placing the mouthpiece, but I am training my assistants to do so in the future. The material feels comfortable and it is very easy to install.”
“DryShield is a really great product! It frees up my assistant’s hands for suctioning so we can complete a procedure much faster. I like the fact that it is autoclavable. Also, because it blocks the tongue and pharynx well, I’m no longer worried all the time of anything dropping down the throat. In terms of isolation, if a correct mouthpiece size is selected, it provides better isolation than rubber dam. For instance, I don’t have to worry about saliva leakage from the unsealed sides of the clamp. Overall, I recommend this product to my dental friends. It has high acceptance rate for even the pediatric patients, especially those who hate the mouth prop.”
“My experience with DryShield has been nothing but positive. I am a pediatric dentist and have found it to be very helpful in increasing patient comfort and safety. I have also noticed a dramatic increase in the speed at which I am able to complete procedures as I no longer have to fight with “strong, curious tongues” or explain the “raincoat and tooth ring”. We use it for sealants and all restorative procedures. It was extremely quick to set up and the staff finds it very easy to clean and autoclave. The assistants love it, the patients and parents love it and I love it too. It has been a great addition to the practice.”
I am a pediatric dentist that has been using DryShield for about 7 months. DryShield is an intuitive and easy to use system. Since using DryShield, my chair time is much more efficient and my procedures are delivered with a high quality due to the near perfect isolation. Furthermore, the system is friendly to all my pediatric patients. The materials used in the system are soft, and without any question, easy to place in the oral cavity. My chair-side assistants have mastered the placement of the DryShield mouthpiece. Definitively, DryShield is a great isolation system in my pediatric practice!
We are a clinic that treats developmentally disabled clients. Our patients range from high functioning Downs patients to profoundly affected autistic patients. Achieving a dry field for restorative care can be a tremendous challenge. We find DryShield to be a significant help for many cases. Yes, some of our patients’ gag reflex is too pronounced to use it; but for most, DryShield protects our patients from the tastes and water spray that triggers their gag reflex. Also, DryShield controls our patient’s tongue and keeps it away from the bur. And, we get a dry field for placing our restoration. Finally, since the mouthpieces are autoclavable, it does not cost us anything if our patient cannot tolerate it. We are loving this product.
“DryShield is a wonderful product which provides isolation, comfort, and more importantly, believe it or not, safety. Particularly during procedures we routinely perform, such as CEREC, we can perform both the prep as well as the full intraoral scan without having to remove DryShield. As far as safety during removal of amalgam fillings, if we are unable to place rubber dam, DryShield will protect the patient from swallowing mercury/amalgam dust or large particles, as these usually are hard to catch despite the best suctioning techniques. Moreover, the one day I did not use DryShield while working on a lower molar, a patient with a small mouth swallowed, which of course in a split second moved her tongue directly into the bur’s path, causing a cut. This would not have happened if I had DryShield. Today DryShield is my first choice for isolation before I start work.”
“We purchased DryShield in September 2015 instead of other isolation systems. Not only did it cost much less but it worked as good or better. We use it on almost every operative procedure, crown preps, crown cementation, and sealants. Sealants are unbelievably easy and FAST. I can actually etch upper and lower at the same time on many cases with no cotton rolls and not worry about contamination. However, I think where it has the biggest benefit is bonding our CEREC crowns. The bonding protocol is very specific and must be kept extremely dry. DryShield eases that stress tremendously. Sterilization has been a piece of cake. I love getting so many uses out of a mouthpiece. Lastly, speaking as a doctor who used another isolation system for many years in the military, the suction on DryShield is much stronger and patients report it to be more comfortable. I can say I am 10-20% faster using DryShield.” A great experience so far. We will be a long time user. Thank you!
We love the DryShield.It is particularly useful during surgical procedures that require extensive irrigation. We have integrated DryShield into our practice to enhance safety and efficacy during procedures such as bone grafting, Dental alveolar surgery such as extraction or tori, and wisdom tooth extractions under sedation anesthesia. The device provides stabilized mandible position and an open field for surgery, while greatly enhancing airway protection and the suction of surgical fluids. A typical example is using DryShield during a sinus lift bone graft procedure.
My patients and I have enjoyed and benefited from using the DryShield. Being able to isolate the quadrant in which we are working, provide the necessary suction and holding the tongue out of the way. DryShield has made our treatment easier and better. DryShield is a great product at a great price! I HIGHLY recommend it for dentists, hygienists, and assistants!
As a traveling Registered Dental Hygienist, DryShield is my favorite piece of equipment to bring to dental offices. I love that it’s portable and can easily attach to many different units. I use DryShield the most during quadrant scaling and root planing procedures. DryShield benefits myself as a clinician and the patient by increasing comfort and efficiency. On average, I’ve noticed that DryShield allows me to perform procedures 50% faster due to it’s ability to suction, remove excess water, and keep the mouth open all at once. I love how the mouthpieces are also easily autoclavable, which makes the product cost efficient. DryShield is an amazing product and reduces fatigue which makes my job easier!
DryShield has been a huge bonus to the office I work at. It has cut down the time almost in half for our operative visits.I work at the pediatric dentist office and the kids say it is a lot more comfortable then the rubber dam isolation we used to use. It catches all the water so the kids don’t feel like they are choking with all the water. I love that I can custom fit each DryShield for each patient. I even have some 3-year olds who are great with it! We use it for just about everything… fillings, stainless steal crowns, nu smile crowns, sealants, ultrasonic scaling and air polishing! I love it for air polishing because everything just gets sucked up right away. It used to take me 17-20 mins to do 4 sealants and now it only takes me 10 and I don’t even need an assistant passing things to me. It keeps the tooth completely dry. After I am done with it I just wash it off in the sink and drop it in the ultrasonic and then autoclave it. Even our general anesthesia cases have been going faster. We are able to work on 2 quadrants at a time instead of just one while the child is asleep. This has saved our patients’ parents lots of money since anesthesia cases are not cheap. This product has made everyone’s life better, from the dentist to the assistants.
There are many options for suction but I like DryShield the BEST. All the single-use options add up in cost… I love that I can sterilize DryShield! They have a few sizes that work and from an ergonomic standpoint, they make my job easier
Our office just love the DryShield system. We use DryShield on preps. Since we scan our preps, it helps to keep the mouth dry while scanning. Overall, it’s the best thing to use to keep the mouth dry.
“Hello my name is Crystal. I’m a Dental Assistant who uses DryShield on a daily basis. DryShield really helps me throughout my day. It’s very easy to use! I’m so amazed at how simple it is to clean and sterilize. I work with small children and sometimes it can be a bit challenging; but using DryShield helps me give great service at a fast pace to my patients. Not only is it good for children, but adults as well. DryShield mostly helps my doctor and I during oral sedation, fillings, extractions and sealants. DryShield is overall a great tool to have; every dental office should own one!”
