Improve Safety and Comfort for Your Pediatric Patients

By Therese Vannier, RDA/OMSA February 6, 2018

Isolite technology is becoming the gold standard for pediatric patients because of its safety, efficiency, ease of use, and the increased patient and parental comfort it provides. As the range of capabilities for this isolation device expands, savvy dentists are catching on.pediatric patients

Greater patient compliance

Using Isolite instead of a rubber dam eliminates much of the discomfort and psychological anxiety experienced by patients. It also helps procedures go faster, making it easier for kids to sit still throughout. According to a study conducted by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, the use of Isolite is associated with 48 percent less chair time and 69 percent greater patient satisfaction.

Better risk management

Unlike cotton roll isolation, the Isolite provides risk management and protects the patient from foreign body ingestion and aspiration so clinicians can be more relaxed and efficient during maxillary and lingual frenotomies, frenectomies, operculectomies, exposure of teeth for ortho, gingival contouring, gingivectomies, removal of mucosal lesions, and biopsies. The Isolite is also handy for sealants, indirect and direct pulp capping, and pulpotomies.

Clinician recommended

The best demonstration of Isolite’s benefits is how it’s been embraced by the clinicians who’ve used it. According to a survey published in the UT Health Science Center, more than 90 percent of the dentists surveyed would recommend Isolite to colleagues.
