Septodont launches Dentapen electronic syringe for dental anesthesia

Nov. 27, 2018
Septodont has introduced the Dentapen electronic syringe for dental anesthesia.

Anesthesia is a first and essential step for most dental procedures. But dentists face a variety of issues when using a traditional syringe, such as adhering to the recommended injection time (1 milliliter in 1 minute); variations in pressure, which can damage tissue and cause discomfort to the patient; and keeping the quality of injections consistent throughout the day. The Dentapen electronic syringe from Septodont is designed to help reduce these challenges.

Like most electronic syringes, the Dentapen monitors the injection with a constant flow at the right pace. This gives the dentist the opportunity to focus more on needle insertion, leading to better control of the injection and a reduction in pain for the patient. For instance, the manufacturer reports that, during a study done on 50 dentists who received a palatal injection, 96% preferred injections from an electronic syringe compared to a manual syringe, and their pain perception was reduced by a factor of two.

The Dentapen is a self-contained, cordless, intuitive device that matches dentists’ habits. It does not have a console, foot pads, tubing, or proprietary disposables. It can be held in two different ways: by the wings, like a manual syringe, or like a pen, for a precise injection during special procedures. And dentists can use any local anesthetic cartridge and their favorite dental needle. Patients find the small, modern look to be less threatening and more reassuring, helping them to relax.
