Simplifying and improving the treatment outcomes of procedures performed every day in the dental office
While devices with frequencies above 100 kHz (.1 MHz) can be used for electrosurgical procedures, the Sensimatic® 700SE uses a high radiofrequency (1.4 – 1.7 MHz) to cut and coagulate soft tissue. When used with the appropriate electrode, the advantage of operating at this high frequency is reduced collateral tissue trauma and damage during cutting.
Why Use the Sensimatic 700SE?
Dentists are not the only healthcare providers who routinely perform surgical procedures using electrosurgery. Medical specialists in the fields of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Otorhinolaryngology, Dermatology and Veterinary medicine, to name a few, all routinely reach for the electrosurgical handpiece each day.
When it comes to dentistry, the following procedures are routinely performed with the Sensimatic 700SE every day:
• Access to subgingival caries
• Removal of inflamed marginal tissue prior to crown cementation
• Bleeding control and coagulation
• Troughing for crown impressions
• Pericoronal flap excision
• Edentulous ridge recontouring and tissue trimming
• Sculpting tissue for acceptance of an ovait pontic
• Excision of hyperplastic and hypertrophic tissue
• Esthetic tissue recontouring
• Exposing teeth for orthodontic eruption
• Periodontal flap surgery
• Controlling localized bleeding
• Tissue biopsy
• Crown lengthening

Advantages of Electrosurgery Over a Diode Laser
• Thin wire electrodes can be adjusted to meet clinical contour needs
• The side of the electrode wire can cut in addition to the tip (Only the tip is an active cutting surface for a diode laser)
• Procedures are completed in a fraction of the time it takes to perform the same procedure with a diode laser.
• A wider, more versatile range of cutting tips
• Lower initial device cost
