Plasma Torch Toothbrush a New Insight in Fear Free Dentisry

Santosh Kumar Ch et al. J Clin Diagn Res.

Abstract

Dental treatment is considered painful either because of fear or anxiety. Even though fear and anxiety could be managed; the needle pricks and the heat generated with drills are both painful and destructive to the tissues of the tooth. A new technology which can reduce the pain and destruction of the dental tissues will be of huge value. Plasma torch toothbrush fits into such criteria and when developed fully, will be able to apply for many of the dental procedures for increasing the efficiency.
