Healing discomfort and scar formation are minimal. Post operative photograph showing PFM crown with right lower premolar. It is a half-wave current that has a dehydrating effect on the tissue with the greatest amount of lateral heat production.

They are designed in various forms according to the function for which they are going to be utilized. These features enable the safe use of the bipolar mode on tissues with other vital structures in the vicinity.

Bipolar ES devices have two electrodes on the cutting tip. Components of a dental implant How to put continuous sling suture? History The initial application of electricity in dentistry and medicine started with the application of spark gap generators Hyfrecators in 1 and cautery units in 2.

Therefore, it is not possible to know whether some of the delayed wound healing was reported was the results of the operators’ not having an optimal control of the factors involved in ES or whether ES is actually as damaging as it has been portrayed.
