iM3 Small Animal Dental Equipment A major advancement in tooth extraction brought to you by iM3! Vet-Tome iM3 Small Animal Dental Equipment Vet-Tome® iM3 is excited to launch the new 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. VET-TOME BENEFITS 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 must have for any veterinary clinic preforming routine extractions. The atraumatic extraction system that greatly reduces extraction time and saves bone! I love my Vet-Tome! My extractions are more elegant and less stressful. With the aid of a thin blade the Vet-Tome cuts the periodontal ligament allowing me to get most teeth out with minimal trauma.” Jean Battig, DVM, DAVDC Animal Dental Clinic NW Advanced Dentistry & Oral Surgery www.animaldentalclinicnw.com The Vet-Tome improves the tooth removal process f &FfWG2BFV"FVG2'&fFrw&VFW"6G&GW&rWG&7F2FRfWBFR2WFFV@W&FRFBffW'2WG&VVǒ&V66RFFWG&7FvF֖"fV"&R72FR7W&vW'2gFVfW726FRWW&V6W0&VGV6VBB7vVƖrF2G&6FW2FW72FP7VBWG&7FrFVWFBf7FW"&V6fW'FRf"FP&WfVFB67W&RbFRfVW27F&R&WV&VBgFW"WG&7F( W72G&VFFRFV@( 7VVG2WFR&6VGW&P( VƖ֖FR"&VGV6RFRVV@F&VfR'V66&P( w2v&FvFW"76W0( 7WG2F2f"WF'2@vvVBVWfF'0( FV7&V6W2BfFwVPc#fWBFRWG&7F77FV6Bc#c#fWBFR7FF&BfBF( 2cR63vrc#6WFRvF"7FF&BB"Vg22F2c#"fWBFRVgF( 2c R6CpFRfWBFRVgF2F6W"B6ƖvFǒvW"FFP7FF&BFc#FW6vVBF&R&R&'W7BBFW&Vf&R7@vW"FRF6GfFvRbFRVgF2BFW2B&VB@7W'fRB6VBǒ&RW6VB7G&vBFF&G2c# FRfWBFR7FF&BfBF2F&FRFW6vVBFfp&VBB7W'fRFRFF&BB7WBFRW&FFƖvVB
