Cool Tool The rational
Tool useful to reduce local pain and inflammation during injection
Results showed that when physical methods (cryotherapy) was applied in the injection site, the subject's perception of pain was significantly less. 1,2
The mechanisms by which cryotherapy might elevate pain threshold include an antinociceptive effect on the gate control system, a decrease in nerve conduction, reduction, in muscle spasms, and prevention of oedema after injury.3
The new Cool Tool® developed by Silfradent® is designed considering the principles of cryotherapy.
