    I have been reading your reviews on the Isolite, and recently I have been trying to give it a chance!! It was your enthusiasm for this product that really pushed me to try it. I am a RDH in a small practice (one doc, one assistant, one front desk, and me!), so I don’t have a hygeine assistant. Isolite works GREAT when I am doing sealants on the kiddos with an over-active saliva factory! My only problem seems to be when I use it for SRP appts. Do you have any recommendations for reaching the distals of second or third molars with an ultrasonic instrument? I seem to keep hitting the Isolite clear back there and I don’t have enough room to fit a mirrow and my USI tip. Have you tried this? Have your hygienists tried it? Any suggestions? How do you fit your handpiece back there??

    Thanks so much!!

      Hi Shannon,

      Yeah… in certain circumstances, it gets tight back there around 2nd molars. I’ve also run into that issue when I try to turn my high-speed sideways to reduce the occlusal for a crown prep. I can’t think of any suggestion other than removing the Isolite for those rare circumstances. So far, I have been able to sort of muscle my way around back there.

    Sounds good. Thanks for the input. I love not have to stop every 5 seconds to suction!!
