Multi-Axis Spiral Suction FAQ

PRODUCT QUESTIONS

Does the Multi-Axis Spiral Suction meet the ADA's recommendation for HVE tips for aerosol reduction during COVID-19? Does the Multi-Axis Spiral Suction meet the ADA's recommendation for HVE tips for aerosol reduction during COVID-19?
  • The ADA recommended that high volume evacuation devices be an 8mm large bore device with 100 cubic ft/min capacity. Our tip exceeds these qualifications. The problem with the generalized recommendation by the ADA is that with a “traditional" HVE tip, once the end of the tip is occluded (such as when the tip grabs the tongue or cheek) it reduces the ability to suction aerosols to 0 (zero) as the tip can no longer draw in any aerosols or fluid. This phenomenon can be seen clearly in videos on our website at https://www.masssuction.com/pages/videos. The multiple apertures (holes) on the side of our suction tip actually results in increased suction compared to “traditional” HVE tips as all the holes are drawing in aerosols. Additionally, there is no way for all the holes to be closed off at once, so our tip will always provide aerosol reduction even if the end of the tip is occluded.

How is this different from a traditional HVE suction tip with a bunch of holes just poked in it? How is this different from a traditional HVE suction tip with a bunch of holes just poked in it?
  • The diameter of the holes, the spiral pattern, number of holes, distances between holes, location of holes on the tube, angle of the barrel wall, and length of the suction tip are all precisely calculated and tested to give the best result. It is the combination of all these features that result in the superior performance of the Multi-Axis Spiral Suction HVE dental suction tip. All these features (as well as numerous other features) have been awarded a U.S. Patent due to them all being necessary to achieve the performance that you will find with the Multi-Axis Spiral Suction HVE dental suction tip.
Is your product patented? Is your product patented?

Patent applications were initially submitted on September 6, 2012 and patents were pending with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office until January 3, 2017. During the patent pending process the design was protected from any variations that may arise that happen to fall under the pending patents claims. The design of the Multi-Axis Spiral Suction HVE dental suction tip resulted in the creation of new mold manufacturing technology never before used in mold creations. Multiple U.S. patents are pending on the manufacturing process as well. Patent requests have also been extended to numerous international countries and will be subject to their respective patent laws. A U.S. Patent was granted on January 3, 2017 for the unique features of the Multi-Axis Spiral Suction. Patent Number 9,532,857.
