High Volume Evacuators
Maximize the Removal of Dental Aerosols
Different dental procedures require varying tools, just as a contractor would not hammer a screw in when building a home—it might do a similar job, but it is nowhere as effective. The same applies to the comparison between high-volume evacuation (HVE) and saliva ejectors. Saliva ejectors tend to be used during routine and straightforward procedures where fluid needs to be removed from the patient’s mouth. Whereas HVEs are necessary during more extensive dental work because of their ability to reduce aerosol production by 90-98%.1 Understanding the appropriate and proper use of both tools is vital.
