Patient controlled – therefore produces many advantages.

  1. Reduces anxiety by removing the fear of choking or gagging because of too much saliva and fluids building up in patient’s mouth.
  2. Reduces Dentist or Dental Assistants’ need to worry about patients choking or gagging (see above).
  3. Frees up time for Dentist and Assistant to concentrate on procedure.

Specific uses.

  1. Under rubber dam – use in same quadrant as procedure being done.
  2. One hole dam – can be used without moisture leakage.
  3. Without rubber dam – provides moisture control and horizontal space to work in. Keeps tongue and cheek retracted.
  4. Triple trays – placed vertically in the opposing side into buccal pouch.
  5. Surgery – can be implant, periodontal or surgical tooth removal. Surgery can be done with Sippressor and one hole dam.
  6. Impressions – alginate impressions can be placed freely in mouth to remove patient’s saliva.
  7. Fluoride tray application – placed to remove patient’s saliva.
  8. Class V restorations – to keep buccal surface dry adjacent to restoration.
  9. In office tooth whitening – patient controls the saliva build up. Makes procedure much more comfortable
  10. Heavy salivators – y-adaptor enables use of both sides of the mouth.
  11. Sealants – keeps dry field.
  12. Composites on the lingual of mandibular molars, for example a broken cusp can keep a dry field either with or without rubber dam, if rubber dam is used it eliminates moisture coming up.
  13. Bite block - dentists that use a bite block can use a straight Sippressor with the bite block. Can also be used with y-adaptor to use Sippressor on working side where procedure being done with a bite block on opposing side.
  14. In-office whitening - remove oral fluids while whitening agent is being applied.
  15. Checking and adjusting occlusion on a restoration while the Sippressor is still in place.


  1. Enables hands free scaling with ultrasonic (Cavitron) or hand scaling.
  2. Therefore allows proper ergonomics for hygienist, reducing body strain and pain.
  3. When doing polishing eliminates the spinning wheel of saliva and prophy paste.
  4. Is patient controlled so can be left off at times and turned on when required.
  5. Being patient controlled allows the hygienist to focus on their work and not on fluids building up in patient’s mouth.
  6. The work becomes much more efficient.
  7. The Sippressor is more comfortable for patients than a saliva ejector because it is soft (not rigid) and is fixed in placement in the mouth.
  8. The patient does not have to hold the saliva ejector.
  9. The Hygenist does not have to hold the saliva ejector.
  10. Can be moved around the mouth to the quadrant that created the most efficient removal of aerosols.
  11. Used when using fluoride trays.


Eliminates Assistant needing to go in and out of the mouth frequently with the saliva ejector. Gives moisture control responsibility to the patient allowing Dentist and Assistant to focus on work. Is comfortable and fixed in position so it doesn’t get caught up on cheek or floor of mouth. Puts moisture control at the site of aerosol or can be moved to any position that is helpful (such as retromolar area where saliva pools).

Enables patient to become part of the procedure and take control of their own oral fluids. By doing this it reduces any associated anxiety and fears of choking.
