A plus for every treatment

Heidelberg, January 18, 2017 – Microbrush® presents new reflective parotid patches that protect teeth effectively from moisture during dental treatment. Reflective DryTips® are an ideal supplement to saliva ejectors and cotton rolls because the extremely absorbent pulp pads are placed on the inside of the cheek directly in front of the largest parotid gland, keeping the area dry for the required period of time.

The pads are coated on one side with silvery foil, which is aligned to the row of teeth. This results in significantly more brightness and a better view, which is advantageous when using the microscope for example.

Draining is necessary for many measures, such as fillings, impressions, caries therapy and orthodontics. The flat dry tips require little space and thus simplify the procedure in the oral cavity. They adhere well to the mucous membrane and are so elastic that they adapt to the facial expressions. They stay in place, store the liquid without releasing it and are easily removed with water spray.

Reflective DryTips® are available in two different sizes and obtainable in the dental trade. A video with instructions for using the products can be found at http://microbrush.eu/products/moisture-control/dry-tips-2/
