So Septodont has developed the Ultra Safety Plus which will address this problem fully.
The company says it is ‘passionate about supporting the safe and ethical practice of dentistry’ with needle stick injuries one of the biggest safety concerns faced by dental professionals.
Indicated for the routine administration of local anaesthetics, the Ultra Safety Plus is available in either a sterile, single use, aspirating syringe system (Ultra Safety Plus 50/50) or with a black reusable handle with each box of 100 needles of (Ultra Safety Plus), both equipped with a needle stick injury prevention device.
The pre-fitted needles also incorporate a bevel indicator to assist in orientating the bevel to the bone as well as a transparent barrel to allow visualisation of aspiration.
