HELPie

HELPie is a disposable product that facilitates dental work and saves time for dentists and dental hygienists. The product’s excellence is based on three functional features:

  1. A flexible bite block which keeps the patient’s mouth open without feeling unpleasant.
  2. The tongue cone. The tongue is directed away from the work area, without restricting its movement, as the tongue remains free to move within the cone. The cone also keeps the floor of mouth clear from the work area.
  3. Powerful one-hole suction. The location of suction can be adjusted according to the situation.

HELPie automatically adjusts to fit the patient’s mouth.

HELPie is also suitable for x-ray imaging without creating contrast.

HELPie is quick to use as it requires no assembly, except for the attachment of the dedicated adapter hose which is included with the product.

 

The benefits of HELPie:

HELPie allows dentists and dental hygienists to work alone as the patient’s mouth is kept open during the whole operation and the patient’s tongue remains clear from the working area, providing good access and visibility inside the patient’s mouth.

Constant suction removes saliva and water from the mouth.

The patient’s need for swallowing is reduced, thus making the operation more comfortable for the patient.

The bite block does not restrict swallowing, due to the flex feature which has been found to be very pleasant by the patients.

The flat surface at the front of the bite block provides finger support while working with patients.

Dentists are able to see more patients, as using the HELPie saves a significant amount of time. User experiences have shown that dentists have gained time savings of up to ten minutes per patient, allowing for efficient time management in registering patients, for example. This also means that the patient has to spend less time in the dentist’s chair.

HELPie is a disposable product and thus our customers can also save on equipment service costs as the product requires no service. The product can be disposed of through waste-to-energy methods.

HELPie also improves work ergonomics and provides benefits for almost all dentist and dental hygienist procedures.

dr The two principal requirements for surgery but in my opinion in all the branches of dentistry, are Visibility and Assistance. The three factors needed for adequate Visibility are Access, Light and Field free of excess fluids. HELPie aid in each of them, creating a good access in the mouth, removing one of the main obstacles that is the tongue, and providing adequate working place since the mouth can remain open easily. Furthermore, the facilitating suction access, moved away from the operator, HELPs to create good illuminated and free of fluids field. The assistant is also happy since has a free hand (otherwise busy to keep the tongue away) to HELP with other operations. I have used several other mouth-openers during my carrier but HELPie in my opinion is the easiest, with repeatable utility and function so far. A big HELP in my practice. Would highly recommend it to every dentist, with no difference in their experience and qualification.
