SONICflex paro

KaVo SONICflex paro (periodontics): Rounded and incredibly fine angled tips for gentle pocket cleaning in closed periodontal therapy

Minimally invasive periodontic therapy

  • Effective cleaning of pockets, up to a depth of 9 mm
  • Protection of collagenous soft tissue and root surfaces from injuries
  • Improved bacterial control

Systematic periodontal therapy is broken down into several phases.

Due to bacterial recolonisation of pockets, secondary periodontal therapy ("recall appointment"), is one of the most important aspects of treatment.

Rounded and incredibly fine angled tips for gentle pocket cleaning in closed periodontal therapy

The problem

Complete removal of subgingival plaque is essential for the success of periodontal treatments. However, conventional instruments do not reach all bacteria management areas. This is frequently unsatisfactory.

 

The solution

The KaVo SONICflex paro tips (0571 0371) for minimally invasive cleaning of the periodontal pockets. The gentle and efficient treatment ensures a favourable prognosis for restoration of an inflammation-free periodontal region. With these tips, teeth are preserved for longer:

  • Rounded, extended tips: straight, angled to the left, angled to the right.

Only two instrument tips are required for thorough treatment of all the teeth: a tip with a left-deflected (No. 61) and right-deflected (No. 62) working end.

In addition, the straight universal tip (No. 60) is available.

No time-consuming instrument exchanges between a multitude of different tips is required with the KaVo SONICflex system.

 

 

Advantages in application of SONICflex paro

  • Area of application in primary and secondary periodontal therapy
  • Major reduction in workload for dentist and dental hygienist, with powered instruments
  • Reduced investment in capital equipment, plus tried, tested and trusted mechanical components in handpiece
  • Completely rounded tips, for efficient removal of plaque and calculus in pockets, with probe depths of over 9 mm
  • Thorough cleaning even of inaccessible areas, such as furcations, thanks to fine tips
  • Only two tips required to reach all subgingival areas
  • External cooling fluid can be supplied if required, however no need to separately buy rinsing or abrasive media
  • Simple and economic extension to the instrument range with the SONICflex root planer tips, for use in periodontal therapy.

KaVo SONICflex paro tips

  • Protection of the collagenous soft tissue and the root surface, from injuries
  • Effective cleansing in pockets up to 9 mm deep
  • Improved bacterial control
  • Effective removal of subgingival plaque and calculus around implants

  • Excellent access even to poorly accessible areas, through ultra fine tips
  • Straight tips for the anterior tooth region and on lateral surfaces, angled tips in the molar region and in the interdental space
  • Efficient removal of deposits: Simple and effective removal of pathogenic plaque and endotoxins from periodontal pockets up to 9 mm deep
  • Effective against bacteria: Through uniform transmission of the sound frequency, their cell structure is destroyed
  • Protection of the tissue: Tip movements at sound frequency do not affect adjacent collagenous soft tissue and the root surface
  • Periodontal bacteria: These are washed out with a constant amount of cooling water ( spray water or sterile saline solution or drug-containing liquids). Detached plaque is reliably removed and deposition of further plaque with periodontal bacteria is reduced
  • Disinfection: Drug-containing liquids may be introduced
  • Accelerated healing process and substantial improvement in the soft tissue attachment
  • High success rate in treatment of periodontitis by the closed method.

 

Inserting the SONICflex paro tips

The respective working end is screwed into the SONICflex handpiece using the torque wrench enclosed in the delivery, until it snaps in place audibly.

The tip is now securely attached to the handpiece.

If the SONICflex handpiece is to remain on the treatment centre with tip attached, it is recommended to leave the torque wrench in place such that the working end poses no risk of injury.
