High-speed handpieces, ultrasonic scalers, air polishers and air/water syringes produce potentially infectious droplets, splatter and aerosols. It is recommended that dentists should utilize a multi-layered approach in order to minimize the risk of cross-contamination in a dental setting. Using high-volume evacuation (HVE) instead of standard saliva ejectors is an important component to reduce the amount of aerosol. Several studies published show that utilizing HVE can reduce the amount of aerosol by 90%-98%.1
The Purevac® HVE System is designed to provide oral high-volume evacuation, visualization, illumination, and retraction during dental procedures. It consists of the HVE Mirror Tip which is a high-volume evacuation tip with built-in dental mirror This enables a one-handed approach to evacuate the patient’s oral cavity of aerosols, splatter, fluid, and debris, while also providing visibility and illumination to the treatment area. An HVE Hose Adapter is available and consists of a flexible and lightweight HVE hose connected to a 360-degree swivel for the HVE Mirror Tip.
If you have any questions or would like to try a sample, please do not hesitate to contact your Dentsply Sirona sales representative.
