Three methods of cutting oral soft tissue in dentistry are scalpel, electrosurgery ES and laser.

The applications for the filtered waveform include the following, Biopsy procedure: The bad odor of tissue burning is present if high-volume suction is not used. How to put internal bevel incision? Buy Now For International Users: They found that elevtrosurgery activated loop electrode generated more energy during surgery than a needle electrode.

Electrosurgery in periodontics: a literature review.

References available in the hard copy of the website. Healing discomfort and scar formation are minimal. The cost for electrosurgery unit is high. According to Krejci et al.

Excision of gingival tissue extending into carious lesion Patient presented with caries on right lower canine 43 and premolar They are designed in various forms according to the function for which they are going to be utilized.

The applications of the partially rectified waveform include the following:. In the bipolar mode, both electrodes are applied concurrently and the current travels from the active electrode through the limited intervening tissue directly to the dispersive electrode. Pre-operative picture shows fracture of teeth and gingival overgrowth.


Components of a dental implant How to put continuous sling suture? Soft tissue planing can be done. Desensitizing dentin and cementum from cervical erosion. Oscillation creates friction and is one means of converting electrical energy to thermal energy in tissue.

Electrosurgery in periodontal therapy –

Pefiodontics cutting can be accomplished by the bipolar mode, it is much more inefficient and restrictive in application. J Am Dent Assoc. Electrosurgical therapeutic objectives pertinent to restorative dentistry include cutting, which is principle use of ES, and coagulation. They demonstrated that periodontiics cooling interval of 15 seconds was necessary to properly dissipate the heat between successive entries into the same area of the tissue with a loop electrode 7.

The wound with electrosurgery showed more inflammation and tissue destruction.

A biometric and histological evaluation. A comparison of laser with ES reveals significant overlap of potential uses and effectiveness. Active electrodes are used for doing tissue cutting or coagulation. However, dentists also know that there are desirable aspects of using a electrosurgey for soft-tissue cutting, including ease of use, low cost and relatively fast and uneventful healing. Therefore, it is not used for coagulation in close proximity to the bone or when performing osseous surgery.

Following is the brief description of periodotnics properties and clinical application of different waveforms. The quality of the wave and lateral heat production are related to each other.

The histological effects of electrosurgery vary depending on the power output 9 and frequency 10 of the electrosurgery unit, the waveform selected 11 and the size electeosurgery shape of the active electrode The following formula is applicable to the amount of lateral heat production. Left central incisor 21 was missing.

The ES equipment, if used for such procedures, minimizes bleeding and most patients experience very little post-operative pain after the procedure. This process describes the events in electrosection and fulguration.

Path of the current The path that the current takes from the active to the dispersive electrode in the monopolar mode is beyond the control of the operator since the current will independently find the least resistant path, which is not necessarily the shortest path. Removal of tissue, exposing gingival margin during crown lengthening. Excision of gingival tissue extending into fractured area of the tooth Patient presented with fracture of right 11 and left central incisor 21 with gingival overgrowth present interproximally distal to 21 [ Figure 8 ].
