Isolite Systems to debut new product at 2010 Chicago Midwinter Meeting

Company expands product line with the IsodryTi dental isolation system

SANTA BARBARA, Calif.--Isolite Systems, maker of dental isolation technology, will debut the IsodryTi Feb. 25-27, 2010. at the Chicago Dental Society's Midwinter Meeting in Chicago, Ill.

The new product was assessed while conducting market research on the company's original Isolite dryfield illuminator dental isolation system. The original Isolite provides five levels of intra-oral illumination, retracts the patient's tongue and cheek, protects the throat, and keeps the mouth gently propped open with continuous suctioning of the dental patient.

With the tongue out of the way and a bright, dry field in which to work, dental procedures are completed an estimated 20 to 30% faster with less stress for the dental professional and improved comfort for the dental patient. The new product, IsodryTi, is exactly like the Isolite, but without the internal oral lighting.

"After conducting market research, we found that there is a segment of dental practitioners who, after years of practicing dentistry, prefer to work only with external lighting, so we created the IsodryTi, which has all of the same retraction, protection, mouth-propping, and ongoing aspiration of the original Isolite, but without the advanced intra-oral illumination of our premier product," said Jim Hirsch, president and product designer.

With no computer circuitry or advanced lighting technology, the IsodryTi has a lower manufacturing cost and the resulting price may make the company's dental isolation benefits more affordable to some dental practices.

"We have found many dental practices wanting to have our isolation technology installed in every operatory of their practice, but they don't necessarily need the intraoral illumination feature in every room," added Sandra Hirsch, general manager.

"Or, we have clinics and teaching facilities with capital budget constraints, and the lower price point of IsodryTi will help them bring state-of-the art isolation to more operatories allowing them to serve more patients," Hirsch added.

As with the original Isolite, the IsodryTi utilizes the patented Isoflex mouthpiece. The shape and softness of the mouthpiece is key to the system's dental isolation.

The latex-free mouthpiece allows fluids and debris to be aspirated from deep within the oral cavity. Built-in tongue, cheek and throat shield protect the patient from injury and provide an added measure of assurance that the airway is better protected from possible dental debris. Single-use Isolite mouthpieces are available in five sizes to fit patients from small child to large adult.

The IsodryTI was made available for sale Feb. 16, 2010. It will be demonstrated along with the Isolite dryfield illuminator at the 2010 Chicago Dental Society's Midwinter Meeting at the McCormick Place West. Isolite Systems will exhibit at Booth #3245.
