In this blog post the Westways Dental Blog would like to announce that we use a tote pump in our practice. Not only do we use this piece of equipment in the performance of our duties but we do so proudly. It is true that other dental offices have no use for such a piece of equipment because when used as it was designed to use there really is no practical application for a dental office. However, when used in certain “off label” modalities it can and is used by our office in various medical, dental procedures. Allow us to explain.
DENTAL APPLICATIONS FOR A DRUM PUMP
Pumps can be used in various ways for the purpose of proper dental hygiene. For example, the human mouth is full of saliva and other fluids that from time to time require extraction from said mouth. Pumps of all kinds can be used for this purpose. Sometimes, when working in a patient’s mouth an abundance of saliva builds up and requires extraction. This is exactly the point in time when a pump can be used to proper effect. Once the fluid in the form of saliva has been properly extracted from the patient’s mouth through the agency of the pump, the dental health professional is then in a good position to perform whatever procedure he or she intends to perform on the patient.
As the reader can already appreciate, a pump can be an effective tool for proper dental hygiene. Moreover, a dental health professional can make great use of a pump in the performance of his or her professional dental health procedures. As such, once the pump has been put into proper use, the dental health professional can then become a much more efficient dental health professional thus improving the experience for the patient.
