iM3 Vet-Tome® atraumatic extraction system

iM3 has launched Vet-Tome, an automated periotome with foot pedal operation that offers precise tooth extraction with minimal or no alveolar bone loss and less trauma. The electric Vet-Tome uses replaceable ultra-thin stainless steel tips/blades coupled with the mechanical in-and-out action generated by the handpiece to cut the periodontal ligament similar to a Luxator (hand instrument). The mechanical action and thin flexible blade allows easy insertion into the periodontal ligament (PDL) and alveolus (tooth socket) coupled with the side to side movement by the operator cutting the PDL. The Vet-Tome will not work for periodontal ligaments that are mineralized, i.e. it won’t go through mineral/bone, but it does an excellent job on the canine teeth (and others) which can be very hard, especially lower cat canine teeth which can lead to jaw fracture. Choosing the right tooth to use the Vet-Tome on is important as it’s not for every tooth and it’s not a replacement for good extraction technique and flap preparation, but certainly a welcome addition to any veterinary clinic preforming routine extractions.
