The iM3 Vet-tome is a major advancement in tooth extraction. The 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 replaceable ultra-thin stainless steel tips/blades coupled with the mechanical in and out action generated by the handpiece to cut the periodontal ligament, similar to a Luxator (hand instrument). The mechanical action and thin flexible blade allows easy insertion into the periodontal ligament (PDL) and alveolus (tooth socket) coupled with the side to side movement by the operator cutting the PDL. Supplied with 2 standard flat and 2 heavy Stainless steel tips. See the Vet-Tome in use, click on "Videos" below.

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
