Paper Abstract

Aim of study: the possible effects on dental postsurgical management using small and not invasive devices: RecoveryRx or ActiPatch producted by Bioelectronics company (USA)

Materials and methods: review of literature using searching engines Keywords: PEMFs, postsurgical treatment, pain, wound healing, RecoveryRx, ActiPatch

Results: Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields have been used extensively for decades for many conditions and medical disciplines. Imperceptible cell dysfunction that is not corrected early can lead to disease. Fine-tuning can be done daily in only minutes, using pulsed electromagnetic fields (PEMFs). In addition, when there is a known imbalance (when symptoms are present) or there is a known disease or condition, PEMF treatments, used either alone or along with other therapies, can often help cells rebalance dysfunction faster. It is seen in literature that RecoveryRX and ActiPatch improve the cell metabolism, rebalance the membrane potential difference, improve the circulation and the oxigenation of the tissues, acceleration of osteogenesis, acceleration repair of soft tissues, reduce pain.

Conclusion: the RecoveryRX and ActiPatch devices could improve the postsurgical healing reducing the patient discomfort.
