Micro-serrated for simple and efficient separation of the periodontal ligament. Coated with titanium for greater hardness and longer service life.
The new, flexible periotomes by Laschal® offer a new dimension to the function and safety of severing the periodontal ligament in preparation for extraction. Made of flexibly resilient stainless steel, serrated, and engineered with varying positions of “stress relief,” two distinct sets of periotomes are offered. The MSP-1F and MSP-2F have ranges of motion of 6+ degrees, and the MSP-1XXF and MSP-2XXF have ranges of motion of 10+ degrees. Both sets are highly resistant to spontaneous fracture and provide different features and benefits. The MSP-1F and MSP-2F provide the stiffness needed in situations that require strength, while the MSP-1XXF and MSP-2XXF provide the flexibility necessary to follow root surface curvatures during operation and even help to locate the most efficient path of insertion.
See the new periotomes at the AAP annual meeting, Booth No. 2006, and at the Pikos Symposium.
