  3. 3. Dental Product Innovations <ul><li>CompuDent ™ </li></ul><ul><li>Is Milestone’s proprietary, patented computer-controlled local anesthetic delivery system </li></ul><ul><li>Delivers anesthetic solution at a precise and consistent rate below a patient’s pain threshold </li></ul><ul><li>Has been heralded as a revolutionary device, considered one of the major advances in dentistry of the Twentieth Century </li></ul>
  4. 4. Dental Product Innovations <ul><li>The Wand ® & SafetyWand ® </li></ul><ul><li>Precision Needle Control: </li></ul><ul><li>Ergonomically designed, patented handpiece enables all traditional and newer injections, such as AMSA, P-ASA and STA-Intraligamentary (PDL), to be easier to deliver and more comfortable. </li></ul><ul><li>Pen-like grasp allows unsurpassed tactile control. Enables the use of a bi-directional rotation during injection, preventing needle deflection that occurs with a traditional syringe. </li></ul><ul><li>A straighter path for more accurate injections, fewer missed blocks, and more rapid onset of anesthesia. </li></ul>
  5. 5. What if you could… <ul><li>Avoid the Mandibular Block injection. </li></ul><ul><li>Increase productivity. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Reducing injection time to 1 or 2 minutes*, with immediate onset of profound anesthesia - dental procedures can begin immediately. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Enhance predictability and injection accuracy. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Dynamic Pressure Sensing (DPS) technology allows continuous, real-time auditory and visual feedback during STA injections. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Have unsurpassed tactile control. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Via ergonomically designed, feather-weight handpiece replacing the palm-thumb grip of the 150 old hypodermic syringe. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Increase Patient Comfort </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A more comfortable injection with no collateral numbing of cheek, lip and tongue </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>*Using 4% Articaine Hydrochloride 1:200,000 local anesthetic solution. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1 minute injection for single rooted tooth, 2 minute injection for multi-rooted tooth. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Now You Can… <ul><li>Avoid the Block by incorporating the STA-System into your practice. </li></ul><ul><li>One or two minute injection with immediate onset of profound anesthesia. </li></ul><ul><li>A precise tool in your hand allows you to consistently and accurately delivery single tooth anesthesia every time. </li></ul><ul><li>Eliminates the collateral numbing of cheek, lip and tongue. </li></ul>
  7. 7. What If you could… <ul><li>Not have to wait 8 to 12 minutes to find out if your syringe missed the Block. </li></ul><ul><li>Use the Intraligamentary (PDL) injection as your primary and only injection and have it last as long as the Block. </li></ul><ul><li>Obtain profound anesthesia instantly and painlessly. </li></ul><ul><li>Perform dentistry on the mandibular right and left (bi-lateral) during the same visit without the Block. </li></ul><ul><li>Convert your most difficult patient within your practice into your most pleasant patient using a magic wand in your armentarium. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Now You Can… <ul><li>Replace 150-year old hypodermic syringe technology </li></ul>
