RELATED TOPICS: Stabident compared with Intraligamentary Injections
The results of Stabident are more predictable. Intraligamentary injections can be very much a hit-and-miss affair depending on needle bevel orientation and the density of the periodontal ligament.
Stabident injections are less likely to result in postoperative pain. Post operative pain is a common occurrence with intraligamentary injections.
With intraligamentary injections it is necessary, by definition, to rupture the gingival crevice – that most delicate of dental structures. This is not the case with Stabident injections.
With Stabident injections there is no risk of external root resorption. Such a risk does exist with intraligamentary injections.
Safety of Stabident injections.
1. The surface area of a Stabident perforation is about 1/500th the surface area of an extraction socket.
2. Unlike an extraction socket the perforation from Stabident is covered with attached gingiva – a natural ‘Band Aid’.
3. 15% of all nucleated cells in calcellous bone are lymphocytes – an excellent defence mechanism.
It will be clear therefore that a Stabident injection is a safe and predictable procedure.
