Surgical suction tips, also known as surgical aspirator tips or high-volume evacuation (HVE) tips, are dental instruments used to remove fluids, debris, and other materials from the oral cavity during dental procedures.


Surgical Suction Tip

Surgical suction tip is made with smooth edges for maximum patient comfort. The surgical tip is molded at a 30 degree angle and fits 11 mm suction holders. This item is also autoclavable up to 135° C or may be disposed after single use. Available in 1/16″, 1/8″ or 1/4″ diameters

Surgical suction tips, also known as surgical aspirator tips or high-volume evacuation (HVE) tips, are dental instruments used to remove fluids, debris, and other materials from the oral cavity during dental procedures. These tips are a crucial component of the dental suction system, providing efficient suction to maintain a clear working area for dental professionals. Here’s how surgical suction tips are commonly used within dental settings:

  1. High-Volume Evacuation (HVE): Surgical suction tips are designed for high-volume evacuation, allowing for the rapid and effective removal of large volumes of fluids and debris from the oral cavity. This is particularly important during procedures where a significant amount of saliva, blood, or water is produced.

  2. Clearing the Operating Field: Dental procedures, especially surgical and restorative ones, require a clear and dry operating field. Surgical suction tips aid in achieving this by quickly and efficiently removing fluids, providing better visibility for dental professionals.

  3. Enhanced Visibility: By removing fluids and maintaining a dry environment, surgical suction tips contribute to enhanced visibility for dental professionals. This is crucial for precision during procedures such as extractions, crown preparations, and other treatments.

  4. Preventing Aspiration: Surgical suction tips help prevent the unintentional inhalation or swallowing of fluids and debris by the patient. This is a safety measure to ensure that patients do not aspirate materials during dental procedures.

  5. Comfort for the Patient: Efficient suction with surgical tips contributes to the overall comfort of the patient by preventing the accumulation of saliva and other fluids in the mouth. This is particularly relevant during longer or more complex dental treatments.

  6. Versatility: Surgical suction tips come in various shapes and sizes to accommodate different areas of the oral cavity and specific dental procedures. The tips may have a straight or angled design to access various regions within the mouth.

  7. Disposable or Sterilisable: Surgical suction tips are available in both disposable and sterilisable (autoclavable) versions. Disposable tips are discarded after each use to prevent cross-contamination, while sterilisable tips can be autoclaved for reuse in accordance with infection control protocols.

  8. Ergonomic Design: Many surgical suction tips feature an ergonomic design to enhance ease of use and handling by dental professionals. The tips may have textured surfaces or flexible materials for improved control during aspiration.

  9. Attachment to HVE System: Surgical suction tips are connected to the high-volume suction system in the dental unit. Dental professionals can control the suction power to tailor it to the specific needs of each procedure.

  10. Routine Maintenance: Dental teams routinely perform maintenance on the suction system, including cleaning and disinfecting or replacing surgical suction tips. This ensures optimal functionality, infection control, and patient safety.

Surgical suction tips are essential tools in dental settings, contributing to the efficiency and safety of various dental procedures. Their effective use helps create a more controlled and comfortable environment for both dental professionals and patients.
