HELPie

HELPie is a disposable product that facilitates dental work and saves time for dentists and dental hygienists. The product’s excellence is based on three functional features:

  • A flexible bite block which keeps the patient’s mouth open without feeling unpleasant.
  • The tongue cone. The tongue is directed away from the work area, without restricting its movement, as the tongue remains free to move within the cone. The cone also keeps the floor of mouth clear from the work area.
  • Powerful one-hole suction. The location of suction can be adjusted according to the situation.

HELPie allows dentists and dental hygienists to work alone as the patient’s mouth is kept open during the whole operation and the patient’s tongue remains clear from the working area, providing good access and visibility inside the patient’s mouth.

Constant suction removes saliva and water from the mouth. The patient’s need for swallowing is reduced, thus making the operation more comfortable for the patient.

The bite block does not restrict swallowing, due to the flex feature which has been found to be very pleasant by the patients.

User experiences have shown that dentists have gained time savings of up to ten minutes per patient, allowing for efficient time management in registering patients, for example.

HELPie is a disposable product and thus our customers can also save on equipment service costs as the product requires no service. The product can be disposed of through waste-to-energy methods.

HELPie also improves work ergonomics and provides benefits for almost all dentist and dental hygienist procedures.

I have over 30 years of experience as general dental practitioner: I make fillings, protetics,dental extractions, treating gingival illnesses and malocclusions. I also treat patients with dental phobia under anaesthesia or sedation. My goal is a satisfied patient that comes back for treatment year after year. First patient treated at my own reception back in 1985 is still a regular.

I have used HELPie-biteblocks for my patients since November 2015. I use them mostly during longer sessions to ease jaw fatigue. I use HELPie also with patiets having problems keeping their mouth open for even shorter times. HELPie, due to its elasticity, allows patient to swallow during treatments, which gives more comfort to the patient. Even the most restless tongue finds its place in the tongue cone keeping away from the working area, hence easing the work of the dentist and dental nurse. I have noticed that HELPie relaxes patients with tendency to muscle tension, even so much that the relaxing effect stays even after HELPie is removed from the patient´s mouth. My dental nurse is glad that she does not have to use the power saliva suction in patient´s mouth nearly as often as without HELPie.
