Engineering Perfection – Simple Elegance Rules

January 20, 2011 Leave a comment



Deceptively advanced technology – simple – portable – reusable – effective.

When we set out to design this new technology we took every aspect of this procedure into account.  We wanted to increase the ease and safety of every extraction in the world, so that finally, dentists would experience  minimized risk in every extraction they perform – forever.

Simply put the Root Tip Remover is a permanent solution to an old nagging problem.  Evidence of this can be found from these important facts with no marketing hyperbole:

  1. The RTR causes less trauma to the area than most root remover systems.
  2. No need to  remove excess bone (essential to reconstruction)
  3. It is a simple easy ergonomic  procedure that supplants technologies costing fifty times as much as the RTR while the RTR out-performs even the most sophisticated removal kits.
  4. If a root tip breaks off, it takes minutes not hours to remove it
  5. Its small size allows for nimble navigation and clear view of the root tip for quick and easy removal.
  6. It moves through decay to anchor into solid tooth structure for root tip removal

Elegance Design Form and Function

Proven Results:
1.   Root Tip Remover is clinically proven to remove residual root tips with less trauma to the patient’s jawbone.
2.   Healing time is decreased due to reduced bone removal and trauma.
3.   Avular bone remains in tact so the ridge is preserved
4.   Less trauma to to the area gives better healing time for implant placement.
5.   Badly decayed teeth that are decayed below the gum line will be able to be removed with ease.
6.   The Root Tip Remover is a dynamic tool to remove residual root tips.

Conclusions: by Kat Johnson

Every dentist has had the experience of removing a tooth and feeling the root tip fracture off and remain in the socket. You feel that dread come over you and you know your going to be here a while, possibly hours. You request your schedule to be cleared or moved to a later time, effecting your production for the day over a $300.00 + extraction. You reach for the bulky instruments and elevators you have on your tray and know that they are just to big to get between the bone and the tooth to get enough leverage to loosen the root tip from the periodontal ligament.  You may need to remove additional bone and cause more trauma to the area, extending the healing time and the discomfort the patient will experience after this appointment. The next several hours there is a lot of force and tension, not to mention what your patient is experiencing during this procedure. With all of this you still might not be able to get that root tip out!  You might have to leave the root tip and hope an infection does not set in.

Now you have another option! An option that will revolutionize your extraction procedures. You will be able to perform these procedures with out the fear of digging out root tips. The Root Tip Remover will remove these broken off pieces with ease! With its specially designed surgical cutting screw you are able to rotate it right down into the root canal and as it anchors into the dentin it will allow you enough strength and leverage to pull out the root tip with ease! Root tips will be removed in minutes, not hours. Your production goals will be increased because you will be able to keep those difficult extractions in house instead of referring them out to an oral surgeon.

Biography and history for the InventDent founder Kat Johnson

The Colors of Perfection

Kat Johnson invented the Root Tip Remover in 2007.   She had been consulting dental practices for years and became dissatisfied with some of the patient outcomes she witnessed during routine extractions.   “I listened to the dentists as they described the pain of sending waiting rooms full of patients home in order to extend a procedure to remove a difficult root tip after it broke off during a routine extraction.  Worse yet was the humiliation of calling in an oral surgeon to handle a dangerous medical extraction of a broken root tip in order to preserve easily damaged nerve and soft tissues.”

Kat Johnson is an authority.  She works with dental practices through her position at The Richardson Group.   Before then she worked as a dental office consultant she was a dental assistant where she gained inside and experience that has brought her to a point where she now helps hundreds of dentists, their staffs and practice managers  to refine and correct problems in order to make their practices enjoyable and more efficient.

“It is lonely at the top.  But I love my work”  Kat jests when asked how she keeps up with so many different practices?”  She answers “I love it.”  I love my clients, I enjoy inventing new ways for them to service patients and make more money by offering excellence and raising the bar higher than they ever thought possible.  “And I love inventing new dental instruments. ”

Kat says: “When I invented the Root Tip Remover I had bee a dental assistant for a few years.  It was just a dream at the time.  My dentist would struggle and sweat (and sometimes swear) over jawbone surgery that was simply chasing after a root tip that was hard to remove.  Sometimes the patient would be sent out for extensive surgery just to get the root tip.   It did not seem necessary, so I set out to fix the situation.”  That was the beginning of Inventdent and the remarkable instrument, the Root Tip Remover.

Kat goes on to describe how she founded InventDent.   “So I founded InventDent, retained a manufacturer, sent them the specifications and had a prototype manufactured, had it tested by several dentist friends who absolutely loved the Root Tip Remover.  So I had a few more made and the rest is history.  Now dentists all over the world especially in developing countries are finding this little instrument to be one of the most useful instruments on their tray.”
