Porter Instrument Silhouette Nasal Mask for Predictable Nitrous Oxide Analgesia

The Silhouette Nasal Mask is the first truly innovative new product for nitrous oxide use in decades. Nothing like it exists! Imagine a nasal hood that does not obstruct access to the oral cavity. Imagine a nasal hood that is so lightweight that the patient barely notices it. Imagine a nasal hood that delivers and scavenges nitrous oxide more efficiently than any other nasal hood. Imagine a nasal hood that provides predictable results for the dentist and a pleasant experience for the patient. The imagination is over – the Porter Silhouette will revolutionize how nitrous oxide is used in the dental practice.

The Silhouette Nasal Mask is a single-patient-use disposable nasal mask and circuit. Featuring four size options (Pediatric, Small, Medium and Large), the Silhouette is designed with the lowest possible profile, making it easier for you to work around. In addition to the innovative shape and design, Silhouette has an adhesive strip for the bridge of the nose. This virtually eliminates gas flowing into the patient’s eyes and more effectively scavenges the exhaled gas – addressing the concern of healthcare provider safety.

Silhouette also allows for the most efficient administration of nitrous oxide – creating a more predictable analgesic experience for each patient. Dentists may find that they can actually “use less gas,” as the potential for the patient to inhale ambient air is diminished when using the Silhouette Nasal Mask.

As a single-use disposable product (both the mask and 36” tubing), set-up and room turnover times can be improved, as well as less time needed for infection control protocols.

Dentists can now benefit from using nitrous oxide and oxygen in the practice – and work more efficiently with the new Porter Silhouette Nasal Mask.

One thought on “Porter Instrument Silhouette Nasal Mask for Predictable Nitrous Oxide Analgesia

  1. I do not like the new mask. I have used the old mask for many dental procedures and it was great even through a root canal. The new mask was used on me just recently and I hate it. I asked the dentist to turn it up a couple of times and it seems as though I barely felt relaxed plus I experienced pain with the I got filling. I never had pain with the old mask for any procedures, some extensive. I want my old mask back. I am a high anxiety patient and need all the help I can get. Thank you
