Many people are afraid of the dentist and it often becomes worse if a tooth has to be extracted – because of both the painful procedure, and the swelling and pain that can last for days later. HELMUT ZEPF MEDIZINTECHNIK GmbH has introduced an advanced tool, the BenexExtractor, which removes the tooth along the root axis.  The BenexExtractor’s gentle upward movement greatly reduces the extraction damage and thus makes the process far less painful. The BenexExtractor was first presented in 2005 at the world’s largest dental fair, and has since then become well known among experts in aesthetic dentistry and implantology.
