During certain procedures, Dr. Ibrahim and Dr. Gin have to isolate the area they’re working on, keeping it visible and dry. At some orthodontic offices, they’ll have you bite on a rubber dental dam while an assistant works the suction device. This leads to an achy jaw and a flurry of hands that makes it hard for the orthodontist to see. Not at Innovative Orthodontic Centers! We use DryShield™, a hands-free, all-in-one device that has a flexible, comfortable mouthpiece, a bite block, suction to remove water and saliva, a tongue shield and an oral pathway protector. Your Naperville orthodontist can work quickly and you can get the care you need a whole lot more comfortably.
An Exceptional Fit
DryShield has a soft, silicone mouthpiece that comes in different sizes and contours to your mouth. That matching bite block provides a place for you to rest your jaw so your orthodontist can see clearly and you won’t have any aching after the procedure.
Hands-Free, Super Suction
With strong, continuous, hands-free suction and passageways in the mouthpiece, the device removes water and saliva. The assistant is able to multitask, making procedures streamlined and reducing chair time.
The device features a cheek retractor too. It keeps cheeks out of the way so they’re safe from injury and Dr. Gin and Dr. Ibrahim have maximum visibility.
DryShield boasts a tongue and oral pathway protector. These innovative features protect you from accidental injury and stop debris or particles from entering your airway.
