Efficient, Precise Tissue Management
Simplifying and improving the treatment outcomes of the procedures performed every day in your dental office, the Sensimatic® 700SE cuts faster than a diode laser and produces less bleeding and better visibility¹ of the treatment site than a scalpel.

While devices with frequencies above 100 kHz (.1 MHz) can be used for electrosurgical procedures, the Sensimatic® 700SE uses a high radiofrequency (1.4 – 1.7 MHz) to cut and coagulate soft tissue. When used with the appropriate electrode, the advantage of operating at this high frequency is reduced collateral tissue trauma and damage during cutting.

In addition to operating at a high radiofrequency, the Sensimatic 700SE’s low-impedance circuitry continually measures the impedance in the tissue at the active electrode (where the tissue contacts the cutting electrode) and adjusts the power as needed to enable stable, consistent passage of the electrode through the soft tissue as cutting depth varies. With a combined 30 customizable settings, (3 for Modes: CUT, CUT/COAG and COAG and 10 for Power), and 7 unique electrodes, you will be able to treat virtually any clinical situation that comes your way.

Advantages of Electrosurgery Over a Diode Laser
  • Thin wire electrodes can be adjusted to meet clinical contour needs.
  • The side of the electrode wire can cut in addition to the tip (Only the tip is an active cutting surface for a diode laser).
  • Procedures are completed in a fraction of the time it takes to perform the same procedure with a diode laser.
  • A wider, more versatile range of cutting tips.
  • Lower initial device cost.

What is Monopolar?
Because of its versatility and clinical effectiveness, monopolar is the most commonly used electrosurgical modality used throughout healthcare. The monopolar Sensimatic generates three different high frequency waveforms. Each has differing surgical characteristics, which cause different histological effects on soft tissue.
  • RF Mode No. 1 – “CUT MODE” (cutting with least coagulation): A filtered, unmodulated current for cutting with the least amount of coagulation. Suited for closed wound surgery where incisions will be sutured.
  • RF Mode No. 2 – “CUT/COAG MODE” (cutting with balanced coagulation): A fully rectified, modulated, undamped current for cutting with coagulation when control of bleeding is desired. It is the most widely employed current in dentistry and is suited for cutting procedures where incisions will not be sutured.
  • RF Mode No. 3 – “COAG MODE” (full coagulation without cutting): A partially-rectified current for coagulation without cutting. This waveform has been found most effective for precise pin-point surface coagulation with minimal tissue destruction.

Recently, Parkell made changes to the Sensimatic 700SE Electrosurgery unit in order to meet new international regulation standards. These changes are minor and deal primarily with cosmetic changes. The functionality of the Sensimatic 700SE has not changed. Some of the noticeable differences on the updated units are as follows:
  • The front panel LED lights are different colors and the labeling is a bit different.
  • The connectors for the handpiece and indifferent plate are now “touch-proof”.
  • The instructions for use have been updated to reference these changes and to include power output information.

So how does all of this affect you?
Please be aware that if you need to order replacement or additional parts and accessories for your Sensimatic 700SE, specifically an Indifferent Plate or a Handpiece, the newer, updated accessories WILL NOT FIT an original Sensimatic 700SE. We will still stock the original Indifferent Plate & Red cable (D601) and Handpiece (D633) for the original Sensimatic 700SE. Also, the updated Sensimatic 700SE (110 volt) units have serial numbers beginning with 90000. Any 110 volt units (for USA) that have serial numbers below 90000 are of the original style.
For customers whom have Sensimatic 700SE 230 volt units, the updated units begin with serial numbers 80000. If you have any questions or concerns when ordering parts for your Sensimatic 700SE units, contact Parkell.
