Digitest 3 Pulp Vitality Tester


Parkell Digitest 3 Pulp Vitality Tester

Parkell Digitest 3
A Pulp Vitality Tester

Combining accuracy, patient comfort, ergonomics and reliability
 
 
The trick when testing pulp vitality is to trigger a response from a vital tooth without hurting the patient. Many pulp testers go from “no reaction” to a jolt of pain in one step.
 
 
The new Parkell Digitest 3 avoids patient discomfort in two ways: Instead of a constant current, the Digitest 3 stimulus consists of an oscillating pulse. We like to refer to it as the “gentle pulse” because a vital tooth feels the stimulus at a level well below the pain threshold. The Digitest 3 also increases the stimulus gradually, without sudden jumps that can trigger an “ouch” response.
How it Works
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 to an identical stimulus can help you hone in on the source of the patient’s pain.

With the ability to offer the additional diagnostic test of electric stimulation using the Digitest3, dentists worldwide are routinely diagnosing and treating problematic teeth that otherwise might have to forgo treatment until a later date, when the problem more clearly presents itself.

Long (B)
Precision Labial (C)
Precision Lingual (D)
These styles should allow you to test just about any tooth a patient presents with.

Automatic one-button operation
Intuitive interface for ease of use
Light-weight design for optimal ergonomics and easy handling
Ideal ramp-up times to generate precise patient response with maximum comfort
Upgraded micro-processor performs a self-test assuring proper function every time


The NEW Digitest® 3 Pulp Vitality Tester is a hand-held, battery-powered diagnostic device that identifies a living tooth by stimulating it with a weak electric current. The unique Digitest 3 stimulus is designed to reliably trigger a patient response in a vital tooth with minimal discomfort.

When the start button is pressed, the device’s microprocessor produces a gentle, pulsed waveform that automatically increases in strength, repeating several times per second. This progressive stimulus produces a pulpal response well below the patient’s pain threshold. The result is an accurate reading you can rely on, while keeping the patient comfortable.The same button that powers up the device, allows the user to program the unit’s rate of stimulus. In addition, the microprocessor performs a self-test every time the unit is turned on to assure that the entire electronic system is functioning properly.

Frequently Asked Questions About the Digitest 3 Pulp Vitality Tester

Q. Can I use the Digitest 3 on a patient with a cardiac pacemaker, defibrillator or insulin pump ?
A. This device is contraindicated for use on a patient, OR BY AN OPERATOR, wearing any intra-corporeal devices, such as cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators, insulin pumps, etc.
 


Q. Is it safe to use the Digitest 3 device if a patient is being administered nitrous oxide?
A. The Digitest 3 cannot be used in the presence of flammable or explosive gases. The use of dental nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia is not advisable because you would not get an accurate response. To accurately diagnose the condition of the tooth, pulp testing must be performed on a patient who has not received local anesthesia or gas analgesia.

Q. Will attachments from other pulp testers work with the Digitest 3?
A. The use of accessories other than those specified, or provided by Parkell, Inc. will result in improper operation. Do not use.

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.
