It is reported that the Slade blade can remove the granulation tissue in the posterior alveolus more effectively
Paradise Dental Technology (PDT, Inc.) has released the latest innovations in Slade Blade, a post-extraction surgical instrument. According to reports, the Slade Blade and the periodontal disease specialist Scott Froum and DDS jointly designed a unique zigzag edge and a high-quality steel blade to remove the granulation tissue in the socket after removal.
"I created these dental instruments based on my own observed clinical needs," Dr. Froum said. "The basic point is that there is a lack of instruments that can effectively remove granulation tissue after extraction."
When the Slade blade is ready to place the implant, it is critical that the cystic tissue be completely removed to leave a clean cannula. The PDT Slade blade series is said to provide periodontal physicians with a more precise blade size for more accurate positioning of the socket. According to reports, this allows cleaner extraction and more effective implantation sites.
In addition to the high-quality 404A steel, Slade blades are also designed to use PDT's unique heat treatment and cryogenic process to make stronger, more durable blades. According to reports, lightweight resin handles not only reduce weight, but its raised diamond-shaped knurls provide a safer, more ergonomic grip when wearing gloves.
Slade blades join PDT's 2016 full range of extraction, tissue grafting, bone grafting and implant placement dental equipments.
