The Painless Vibrating Retractor from Practicon helps reduce the pain of needle injections while simultaneously retracting cheeks.

This improves access and increases visibility. Useful for any quadrant, its high-frequency vibrations effectively mask the needle pinch and discomfort due to the Gate Control Theory, whereas nerve endings sense vibration sensations first.

The detachable retractor is steam autoclavable, and the lightweight, non-slip handle may be surface disinfected or covered with a sheath.
