Parkell’s New Digitest 3 Pulp Vitality Tester Helps Dentists Diagnose Issues During Patients Return to the Operatory
Posted on April 19, 2021
Parkell, a recognized global leader in dental materials and equipment manufacturing for over 70 years, is proud to introduce the new Digitest® 3 Pulp Vitality Tester.
When percussion, ice, heat and radiographs are not enough, electric stimulation may be the diagnostic tool dentists need for determining the cause of the patient’s discomfort. The Digitest 3 electrically stimulates the tooth to test for vitality. Comparing the response to the stimulus of the suspected tooth with a known healthy tooth’s response can help dentists hone in on the source of the patient’s pain.
As quarantine restrictions ease and patients return to the operatory to have long overdue needs addressed, it has never been more important for clinicians to have every diagnostic tool at their disposal.
“When a patient presents with nonspecific discomfort, sometimes diagnosing the source of their pain is straightforward, but when it’s not, having the Digitest 3 in my diagnostic toolbox can be the gamechanger that takes an inconclusive diagnosis and turns it into a conclusive one,” says Michael Karter, DDS*.
With the ability to offer the additional diagnostic test of electric stimulation, dentists are discovering they can more easily diagnose and treat problematic teeth that otherwise might have to forgo treatment until a later date, when the problem escalates with more severe symptoms.
The ergonomically designed Digitest 3 has an intuitive single button control and can easily be programmed to accommodate every dentists’ personal settings preference. The four autoclavable probes promote easy access to all tooth surfaces.
