While watching this video, notice that the arm remains naturally and relaxed attached to the body during the whole working session. There is no need at all to harmfully upraise the arm like when using the traditional aspirator tip. The hand using the ErgoFinger® can be supported by resting on different points of the patient’s head, providing a sense of calm throughout the treatment.
Additionally, there is no need to disconnect the ErgoFinger® from the finger for example to collect another instrument, where this action with the traditional tip would instead require to reach out for the suction holder in order to release the tip to free your hand for the other instrument.
Using the ErgoFinger® eliminates the need to crowd the patient’s mouth with cotton wool rolls, chin pads or other suction devices, making the treatment more comfortable for the patient. The ErgoFinger® and the fingers of the dental care professional are sufficient in the patient’s mouth, creating the required working space and visibility by moving the mucous membranes away gently with the free fingers.
The ErgoFinger® suction tip is made of a non-toxic, soft and flexible material that feels comfortable in and around the patient’s mouth. Smooth edges allow for safe use around sensitive mucous membranes.
