Aspirating dental syringe is a tool used to extract the dental debris from teeth. The device is known as aspirating syringe and is used in various dental practices to remove the dental debris. There are various types of aspirating syringe available in the market. There are some of them which have specific features that help in the proper aspiration of the dental debris.
Prior art devices for aspirating syringes
A prior art device for aspirating dental syringaes may include a protective case for the needle that slides over the distal end of the syringe body and engages detents on the body. This prevents the needle from being contaminated or disposed of improperly. This device may be single-use or reusable and may be used with any medication.
Aspirating syringes have been plagued by problems with needles. Prior art devices for aspirating dental syringes include devices such as a hood for concealing the needle and a sleeve adapter that applies pressure to gum tissue without exposing the needle.
An aspiration apparatus for dental practice generally comprises a continuously running fan assembly with a valve or conduit that communicates with the atmosphere to provide continuous air intake. The mouthpiece, which usually comprises a cuspidor cup, is connected to the pipeline system via a valve or conduit.
Features of Osung syringe
The Osung dental aspirating sуringe is a high-pressure syringe that is made of medical-grade stainless steel. This material increases the instrument’s durability and makes it a worthy investment. It also has a 1.8cc shift and a harpoon tip for delivering local anesthesia. This device can anesthetize a single dental root for 30 to one hour. Moreover, it comes with a wide range of oral care tools.
The syringe comes in two versions: the Standard and Petite. The Petite is suitable for small hands because it features a smaller thumb ring and a shorter plunger. The Standard syringe features a larger thumb ring and a longer plunger. Both are made of stainless steel and surgical grade aluminium, and neither of them is designed with removable parts. Both are compatible with 1.7 or 1.8-ml dental cartridges.
Aspirating syringes are used for a variety of purposes, ranging from injecting fluids to extracting biological materials. They are a must-have for dental practitioners and can improve the patient experience.
Plunger design for attaching harpoon to syringe
The present invention relates to a plunger design for attaching a harpoon to a dental syringe. The plunger has a carpule-like seal and a proximal end that is disposed proximal to the syringe. The harpoon has a sharp point and is preferably made of stainless steel.
A traditional dental syringe’s plunger design has a tendency to pull the harpoon out of the stopper while performing an aspiration procedure, which is unsafe and wasteful. The new plunger design, which is patented by Myron R. Levenson, DDS, addresses this issue by positively separating the harpoon from the stopper after each retraction. It also offers the benefits of being autoclavable and compatible with all standard anesthetics.
The plunger design for attaching a harpoon to a dental syringe incorporates a rectangular cross-section with locking fingers on either side. The locking fingers have notches 12 to make orientation easy.
