The solution: Purevac® HVE                                                   


  • The high-volume tip removes 90 percent more aerosols during ultrasonic scaling compared to a low-volume saliva ejector1, thus creating a safer environment

  • The kink-resistant hose is 69 percent lighter and 130 percent more flexible than a standard HVE hose, optimizing ergonomics

  • The Purevac HVE features a 360-degree swivel, making it easier to maneuver        

  • The fog-free mirror provides greater visibility and illumination to the treatment area

  • Procedures are more efficient with two tools in one hand. No switching back and forth between the HVE and a mirror. This contributes to safer conditions
