The problem

Periodontal treatments with graft operations are complicated and physically stressful. The furcation proves to be a weak point: it has only limited access and is difficult to clean.

 

The solution

The KaVo SONICflex rootplaner tips for easy processing of even remote or narrow furcation regions. Eases the physically stressful periodontal treatment with graft operation for the dentist and patient:
 
  • Differently angled tips with working ends of different sizes: singly angled bud for cleaning smooth surfaces and the contra-angle bud for furcation cleaning.

The KaVo SONICflex rootplaner tips open up completely new possibilities in mechanical conditioning of root surfaces, especially in inaccessible furcation areas.

 

Treatment of molars with furcation infection

diagramm_1 SONICflex rootplaner


The time outlay for processing molars with furcation infection, during flap surgery with manual instruments (H) and with the diamond-coated air scaler attachments (DS).

The three diamond-coated SONICflex rootplaner tips (no.s. 24, 25 and 26) with the smaller buttons are designed for treating the furcation.

 

diagramm_2 SONICflex rootplaner


This graphic shows the horizontal, clinical attachment gain on molars with furcation infection that were processed during flap surgery, either with manual instruments (H), or with diamond-coated SONICflex rootplaner tips (DS).
It can be clearly seen that half a year after operation on the teeth processed with DS, a significantly greater attachment gain was produced that could not be maintained over two years, as the corresponding instruments were not available for the recall.

KaVo SONICflex rootplaner tips

  • Effective processing of smooth surfaces and furcations (distal access also possible)
  • Assurance of success during periodontal surgery
  • Reduced muscle-fatigue in fingers
  • Supply of sterile, saline solution possible
  • Excellent rinsing of debris, gentle action, thanks to excellent visibility and cooling


KaVo SONICflex rootplaner - Variety developed to a fine point.

Inserting the SONICflex rootplaner 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.
