The atraumatic extraction system that greatly reduces extraction time and saves bone!

The iM3 Vet-tome® is a major advancement in tooth extraction.
The patented Vet-Tome is an automated periotome with foot pedal operation that offers precise tooth extraction with minimal or no alveolar bone loss and less trauma. The electric Vet-Tome uses ultra-thin (flexible) stainless steel tips/blades coupled with the mechanical in and out action generated by the handpiece to cut the periodontal ligament. The mechanical action and thin flexible blade allows easy insertion into the periodontal ligament (PDL) space and alveolus (tooth socket) coupled with the side to side movement by the operator cuts the PDL. Unlike other Luxator periotomes suitable for human teeth the Vet-Tome tips are fine and flexible allowing easy insertion into the PDL whilst the tip follows the curve of the canine tooth root. 

  • Ultra-thin tips allow easy insertion into the periodontal ligament space on all canine & feline teeth.
  • The flexible tips bend (unlike rigid tips) and follow the curve of the root, the tip (40mm long) will reach the apex of most canine teeth, making it ideal for canine extraction.
  • The mechanical in and out action of the tip generated by the electric handpiece advances the tip into the PDL reducing the physical work normally associated with extractions.
  • The non-twisting action of the Vet-Tome results in minimal tissue damage (see video below) compared to units that reciprocate or use gentle vibration. The Vet-Tome tip does not generate heat.
  • 10 adjustable power settings and different sized veterinary specific tips for small cats to large dogs, even Lions.
  • The Vet-Tome operates independently from your air driven dental unit allowing both units to function at the same time, increasing overall dental efficiencies.
  • Educational extraction videos performed by Dr Anthony Caiafa BVSc BDSc MANZCVS are supplied with the system.
  • Satisfaction guaranteed or your money back - manufactured by iM3.

Supplied with 2 standard flat and 2 heavy Stainless steel replaceable tips.

"The Vet-Tome gives you the ability to perform a truly minimally invasive extraction, which means more rapid socket healing and less pain for the pet. In my humble opinion, the Vet-Tome will be a game changer for the veterinary profession".
Anthony Caiafa BVSc BDSc MANZCVS

" Our Vet-Tome arrived yesterday and we had occasion to use it across two of our four dental surgeries today. Both occasions unexpectedly. It is an absolute revolution. In under 60 minutes I extracted over 20 teeth including 4 canines without gingival flaps or osseous burring using the most conservative of settings and no experience of the device. I am certain that in one case it saved me over an hour of awkward mandibular flap creation and burring to remove two lower canines with roots extending all the way to Hades. No extraneous gingival trauma, easy closures and a patient freed from awful dental trauma. 
Today, with the Vet-Tome, I had one of the most satisfying professional experiences of my career!
Thank you

2 ½ months ago we upgraded our dental equipment and bought the CR7 iM3 dental radiograph hand unit and the iM3 Vet-Tome. I don’t know how we used to do dentals without the x/ray guidance. The system is user friendly and in less than 10 minutes we now have full mouth x/rays on every patient. The Vet-Tome has just made dental extractions, easier for us. I recently had the “pleasure” of extracting two fractured canine teeth (an upper and a lower) at gum level, in a young staffy after a storm. Normally I would have raised a gum flap burred bone, and then broken into a sweat, trying not to break the jaw in the process. Instead I fired up the Vet-Tome. I tackled the upper canine first, and with the instructional video playing on the iPhone beside me, at “rookie pace”, I gradually learnt how to use the Vet-Tome as I went. The first tooth root took 27 minutes. There is a technique but it is easy, and by the lower canine I had my confidence. 4 ½ minutes later, I had removed the lower canine root with no fuss. I have since used it to remove 109, 209 also with ease. Best investment we have made. Dr. Melanie Irvine BVSc (Hons) Nicklin Way Veterinary Surgery

I have used the vet tome on two dogs and it worked very well. One was a young Shih Tzu with 8 retained deciduous teeth, 4 of these being canines. I removed the first upper deciduous canine tooth painstakingly slowly as I didn't want it to fracture, so I decided to use the vet tome on the remaining retained canines. I used the low setting of 2, and did not use it on the surface next to the erupted permanent tooth. It sped up the procedure significantly and I didn't fracture any roots. So that worked well. I also used the vet tome on a Miniature Schnauzer that needed two lower canine teeth removed. I didn't need to make a gingival flap and removed the first tooth in about 15 minutes. My colleague removed the second lower canine in 25 minutes burring away only minimal alveolar bone. I am very happy with the vet tome so far and I am looking forward to using it on more cases in the future.

The Vet-Tome turned up this week and I got to pull it out today for a slab fracture of the upper carnassial PM4 in a 35kg Chow chow. With absolute L-plate learner speed and due caution, the entire extraction took 12 minutes. I felt in complete control the whole time, zero sweating, and my nurses tell me my language remained civil the entire time. There is no doubt the trauma to surrounding tissue was substantially less than I would normally create. Dr Caiafa predicts this will be a game changer for the profession- It certainly is for me!

Today, I used the Vet-Tome for the first time on a 6 month old 4kg PoodleX with two retained upper deciduous canine teeth. Both teeth were complete with no resorption of the roots. Total time per tooth from gum incision to removal of the tooth - 4 & 1/2 minutes per tooth - I used setting 2 and went very carefully, and with practice will become more competent and confident. The key benefits are intra-operative time saving for the patient and surgeon and the reduction in trauma to the patient. I would recommend this machine to every practice owner. Greg Mahon B.Vet.

I got to use the Vet-Tome for the first time last week. I was extracting a lower canine in a Staffy dog. This tooth is the nemesis for most practitioners. Normally, to extract this tooth, I would raise flaps on both the lateral and medial sides of the tooth. I would also remove bone on both sides of the tooth, and then with the use of luxators and elevators and a fair amount of force, I would extract the tooth with the fear of fracturing the lower jaw in the back of my mind. The dog would then be left with a hole accompanied by bone loss from the surgical extraction and the flap would then be sutured over this cavernous wound. I figured that hopefully in the future, something would arrive that would take away the fear, the sweat and sometimes the tears that has been associated with difficult extractions. The future has arrived! The Vet-Tome is basically a mechanical periotome with power settings from 1-10, that follows and cuts the periodontal ligament. It can be used 360 degrees around the tooth. When using the Vet-Tome, you normally should not need to remove alveolar bone, but the Vet-Tome creates a space around the tooth and will thus loosen the tooth. In my hands, I then use elevators to elevate the tooth out of the socket, finally allowing for extraction forceps to finish the job. The extraction site wound that is left is much smaller than in a surgical extraction. The Vet-Tome gives you the ability to perform a truly minimally invasive extraction, which means more rapid socket healing and less pain for the pet. In my humble opinion, the Vet-Tome will be a game changer for the veterinary profession. Anthony Caiafa BVSc BDSc MANZCVS 10.02.2018
