PDT releases the Slade Blade

Article

The Slade Blade reportedly allows for more efficient removal of granulation tissue in post-extraction sockets

Paradise Dental Technologies (PDT, Inc.) has released its newest innovation in post-extraction surgical instruments, the Slade Blade. Designed with periodontist Scott Froum, DDS, the Slade Blade reportedly allows for more efficient removal of granulation tissue in post-extraction sockets thanks to a unique serrated edge and high-quality steel blade.

"I created these instruments based on the need I observed from my own clinical experiences," Dr. Froum says. "Basic sentiment was there was a lack of instruments that efficiently removed granulation tissue post-extraction from extraction sockets."

Thorough removal of cystic infected tissue to leave a clean socket is crucial when preparing to place an implant. PDT's line of Slade Blades is said to give periodontists a more precise blade that's sized more accurately for sockets. This reportedly allows for cleaner extractions and more effective implant placements.

In addition to high-quality, 404A steel, the Slade Blade is engineered to use PDT's unique heat treatment and cryogenic process to create a tougher, more durable blade. The lightweight resin handle reportedly not only reduces weight, but its raised, diamond-patterned knurling is said to allow for a more secure, ergonomic grip when wearing gloves.

The Slade Blade joins PDT's full line of extraction, tissue-grafting, bone grafting and implant placement instruments introduced in 2016.

Scott Froum is a board-certified periodontist who received his bachelor's degree from Amherst College in Amherst, Mass., with a major in biology. He received his DDS from the State University of New York Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine where he graduated with honors. He continued his dental training in the post graduate periodontal department at the State University of New York Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine and received his periodontal certificate. He currently is a clinical assistant professor at the State University of New York Stony Brook School of Dental Medicine in the department of periodontics. He is chief editor of the online journal Perio-Implant Advisory, and he is on the editorial board for the Academy of Osseointegration Newsletter. He maintains a private practice in New York City.
