“Open a little wider, please.”

“Try to relax your tongue.”

“I will need to have you open a wider.”

“Can I please get a little more suction?”

“Try to keep your tongue on the other side of your mouth.”

“Please try to stay open.”

“Suction, please…”

Sound familiar? You’re not alone. Achieving good isolation while trying to keep your patient comfortable can be a daunting task. A patient that has a hard time keeping their mouth open, constantly needs to close and swallow, or has a tongue that is impossible to wrangle, can easily cause you to run behind schedule. Running behind schedule then adds to your stress level and creates poor patient perception. 

Zirc Dental Products has a solution! Introducing Mr. Thirsty One-Step® ­- this latex-free device provides you with the efficiency of hands-free isolation. It comes completely pre-assembled, has a built-in bite block, and connects directly to your existing HVE valve. When Mr. Thirsty One-Step® is positioned in the mouth, it retracts the tongue, protects the airway, and keeps the cheek out of harm’s way.

Mr. Thirsty One-Step® comes in two color-coded sizes for easy identification: purple is pedo/small and blue is medium/large. If needed, it can be easily customized by simply trimming any part of the device with a scissors. There is no need to waste time with tedious cleaning processes because Mr. Thirsty One-Step® is fully disposable and eliminates the risk of cross contamination.

Whether the hygienist is using Mr. Thirsty One-Step® for sealants or ultra-sonic scaling, or the dentist is using it for a restorative procedure, they will find that patient chair-time will be reduced by as much as 29%!   Mr. Thirsty One-Step® is here to eliminate the stress of wrestling tongues and trying to keep the field dry long enough to complete the job. The dentist can also start a procedure while the dental assistant is completing other tasks or seeing a patient in another treatment room. Now you’ve not only saved time, but increased revenue too!

If you are tired of sounding like a broken record by repeatedly coaching your patients to open and relax, try Mr. Thirsty One-Step®. Right now, you can save $10 on a trial kit or buy three packs of 25 and get one free! Offer is valid until 4/30/2020.
