Minimised stress thanks to pinpointed single-tooth anaesthesia
Unlike nerve block and infiltration anaesthesia, intraligamentary anaesthesia (ILA) achieves an immediate and complete anaesthetising of the single tooth by injecting the local anaesthetic directly into the periodontal ligament of the tooth that is to be anaesthetised. The pain of injection is minimised and the cardiovascular system is not subjected to unnecessary stress.
The injection is performed using an ILA needle with a particularly short bevel, inserted into the desmodontal space at an angle between 10° and 30°. Syringes (e.g. Citoject) developed specifically for intraligamentary anaesthesia make it possible to overcome the interstitial resistance in the dense desmodontal tissue.
For each root of the tooth being treated, only 0.2 ml of anaesthetic is administered very slowly (for at least 20 seconds). The anaesthetic quickly spreads intraosseously throughout the fenestrations of the lamina cribriformis and reaches the pulp in about 30 seconds (Smith and Walton, 1983; Tagger et al., 1994). The anaesthetic takes effect almost immediately and lasts for an average of 30 minutes (Kaufman et al., 1984).
Adapted to meet key market standards, SOPIRA gives you complete syringe sets in various designs. Select the appropriate set from our different models or select from the following accessories to create your preferred design.
|Citoject head pieces||Citoject plastic sleeve||Citoject plunger||Citoject hand pieces|
Head pieces with threads for needles. Deliverable in
two sizes for 1.8ml and 2.2.ml anaesthetic glass cartridges.
The head pieces are available with straight or angled attachments.
The attachment that is angled at 30° matches the optimal insertion angle for ILA.
|The plastic sleeve prevents the glass cartridge from bursting under high pressure and is available for 1.8ml and 2.2 ml glass cartridges.||
Matching plungers are available as sharp or flat, depending on
which type of glass cartridges are used
(with an asymmetrical plunger and aspiration holes or with a flat plunger).
Available in two sizes for 1.8ml and 2.2.ml anaesthetic
Both head pieces and hand pieces are made from stainless steel and
