Diagnostic device for ultrasound measurements of mucoperiosteal flap thickness.
SDE-101 “FT” (Flap Thickness) device was designed for mucoperiosteal flap thickness measuring in stomatological implantology application, yet it may be successfully applied by other stomatologists if it is needed to know patient’s mucoperiosteal flap thickness.
Palpation and sounding do not provide exact data on mucoperiosteal flap thickness.
The device also provides information on mucoperiosteal flap ductility, which is essential when substantiating tooth replacement, treatment with application of implants or without it. Information on mucoperiosteal flap thickness and ductility under removable prosthesis help to define the term of its replacement and select appropriate dental product.
Information on mucoperiosteal flap thickness map and topography enables correct decision-making during transplantation, augmentation or operation. In some cases it is also the reason to apply physiotherapeutic procedures, such as gum automassage, hydromassage of oral cavity, d'arsonvalization prior to surgical intervention. Analysis of mucoperiosteal flap thickness and its map dynamics enables more effective prediction of stomatological and somatic diseases’ treatment results.
The device is equipped with convenient transducer for measurements, transducer holder, PC attachment and convenient programme interface.
Transducer holder and attachment may be mechanically or magnetically fixed in any convenient place.
