Isolite Systems to Debut New Small DV Mouthpiece at Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting

New Mouthpiece Provides Another Size Option for Dentists Working with the Company's Award-Winning Dental Isolation Technology

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – February 16, 2011 – Isolite Systems, maker of the award-winning Isolite™ and Isodry dental isolation systems, will launch a new Small Deep Vestibule mouthpiece size for the systems at the Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting in Chicago, February 24 - 26, 2011.

Both dental isolation systems hold the patient's mouth open, keep the tongue out of the working field, and guard the patient's airway -- all while continuously evacuating saliva and excess moisture. Working with Isolite Systems' dental isolation technology allows dental professionals to perform procedures more efficiently with greater control over the oral environment.

The super-soft Isolite mouthpiece used with the Isolite and Isodry systems makes for a more comfortable experience for the patient allowing the patient to rest their jaw on a soft bite block versus having to hold it open for the entire dental procedure. With the tongue comfortably retracted by the Isolite mouthpiece, it is kept safely away from the dental procedure and the dental drill, so as to avoid unintentional injury of the tongue. Additionally, the Isolite mouthpiece shields the patient's airway as an added measure of safety to prevent inadvertent aspiration of a foreign body such as a broken or extracted tooth, crown, or implant.

With the addition of the new Small DV (Deep Vestibule) mouthpiece to its product line-up, Isolite Systems now makes available six distinct super-soft mouthpieces which are designed to fit patients varying in size – from small children to large adults.

The new size was developed for patients that need a small bite-block but have a relatively deeper vestibule compared to other small-mouthed people. For these patient types the new shape and design of the Small DV mouthpiece allows for an even more complete tongue retraction and better fit in a patient’s mouth. Its expanded cheek shield shape provides improved suction that goes deeper into the vestibule. The new design features a more stable bite block and provides additional suction capacity behind the bite block itself, assuring saliva does not pool behind the mouthpiece.

The new Small DV mouthpiece was developed based on customer feedback. "We know that one size mouthpiece does not fit all patients. Isolite previously introduced the Medium DV mouthpiece to provide a better fit for adult patients with deeper vestibules. We had such a positive response to the Medium DV, that we wanted to bring those same advantages to our smaller-sized patients," said Dr. Thomas Hirsch, Isolite Systems co-founder and Director of Clinical Relations.

"The new Small DV mouthpiece is an excellent addition to the Isolite mouthpiece line," said Lawrence A. Kotlow, DDS, PC, a board certified specialist in pediatric dentistry, "It gives me more options for mouthpieces and that helps me provide better patient care."

The Small DV mouthpiece will be demonstrated along with the company's award-winning Isolite and Isodry dental isolation systems beginning February 24, 2011 at the Chicago Dental Society’s Midwinter Meeting at McCormick Place. Isolite Systems will exhibit at Booth #443. For more information about Isolite Systems and its products, including a video tour and clinical videos, please visit or call 800-560-6066.
