About Lighted Saliva Sidekick by Ascentcare Dental Products
One of the many Bite Buddy mouth prop attachments, the sterilizable Lighted Saliva Sidekick illuminates the mouth while securely holding a standard disposable saliva ejector tube. This attachment adds intraoral lighting to your hands-free saliva ejector tube holder, all while maintaining a low profile and enabling optimal physical and visual access.
Features of the Lighted Saliva Sidekick include:
- Unobstructed. The U-Shaped Bite Buddy mouth prop with the low-profile lighted attachment gives you total visual and physical access to the work area.
- Innovative. Exclusive mounting rail and magnetic coupling system allow for simple and quick attachment and retrieval of the Saliva Sidekick without the need to remove the mouth prop from your patient’s mouth.
- Sterilizable. The Saliva Sidekick was designed, engineered and made to withstand repeated sterilization using industry standard cold sterilization methods.
- Versatile. Available in left and right orientation and attaches to all three sizes of the Bite Buddy mouth prop (small, medium and large).
- Illuminated. Transform the Bite Buddy into the brightest mouth prop on the market, emitting over 50,000 LUX with a color temperature of 6,000K. High, medium and low light settings.
Attached to the unique Bite Buddy mouth prop, the Lighted Saliva Sidekick provides intense illumination of the entire mouth without interfering with access. The U-shaped mouth prop design and low-profile saliva ejector tube holder leave an open visual and physical work area. Side access and visibility are not compromised while using this system. The saliva ejector tube is ideally placed to eliminate liquids from pooling. It’s innovative design angles the tube to exit the mouth without rubbing against the patient’s teeth or interfering with your work area.
Designed with antimicrobial medical grade polycarbonate, the Lighted Saliva Sidekick is sterilizable and reusable, without the fear of cross-contamination. Simply remove and dispose of the suction tip and follow cold sterilization procedures for reuse.
The Lighted Saliva Sidekick is available in left and right orientation to meet illumination needs in all areas of the mouth. It attaches easily to all three sizes of the Bite Buddy mouth prop.
Powered by the HyperLUX light engine, the Lighted Saliva Sidekick produces 30,000 LUX at the highest setting. The light engine toggles between three settings: high, medium and low to give you just the right amount of visibility you desire. A cool “daylight” color temperature that does not set UV glues or sealants emits from the light engine. The entire system including the light engine is portable and ideal for moving from one exam room to another and great for use in mobile dentistry. Using fiber optics to intraorally illuminate your patient’s mouth while precisely placing and securing a saliva ejector tube, your suction and illumination needs are met with this hands-free attachment.
NOTE: The Bite Buddy mouth prop and HyperLUX light engine are needed to use this attachment piece and are sold separately.
