The Isolation Block is a patented product designed by a dentist to isolate teeth and maintain a dry working field on the maxillary and mandibular arches.
It attaches easily to the low-volume evacuator. Features include the combination of a bite block, lip retractor, and tongue shield that suctions continuously.
The block can be used for a range of procedures such as veneers, crowns, composites, bonding orthodontic brackets, sealants and chair side bleaching. It comes in three sizes with the single lip retractor and two sizes in the double lip retractor.
The blocks are fully autoclavable and last for approximately 50 uses.
The Isolaton Block can be purchased through a dental supplier.
