The blue screened suction tip was great for rinsing restorations prior to cementation. While holding the restoration in my hand.

Safe-Vac®

Prevent Time Consuming Blockages And Loss Of Certain Dental Restorative Components

Description

Safe-Vac® is non-latex single disposable HVE suction tip that incorporates an internal screen to prevent time consuming blockages and loss of certain dental restorative components and aides in many dental procedures. Safe-Vac has a soft tip that prevents tissue trauma while maintaining the traditional HVE style. Suctions come in two styles Screened Blue tip and Standard Green Tip.

Conclusion

The CPS evaluation team consisting of 20 offices and 600 suctions performed, the Safe-Vac received a 4 diamond score from CPS Team of Evaluators. When asked to rate this suctions performance to other HVE tips almost all said it was equally good and much softer on patient’s tissue. When asked about the noise almost all felt the suction with the vent was a little bit louder, but felt it was worth the notice to capture parts and pieces of amalgam and old crowns. When asked what they were using now almost all said Patterson or Schein brands. When asked what they liked best about the suctions the responses were almost all the same. Each evaluator liked the softness of the tip on both and internal screen allowed removal of larger items without clogging the trap, The standard green suction tip with the softer end was great for patient comfort during use. One clinician commented, “The blue screened suction tip was great for rinsing restorations prior to cementation. While holding the restoration in my hand”. When asked what they liked least about the Safe-Vac all said they would like a non-vented version that would cut down on some of the noise. When asked if the patient said anything about the suctions three patients did notice the difference in the ends and said it was so much better than other suctions used before.
