Cooling Treatment

Hilotherm® is a specialized cooling treatment system now offered at Praxis & Klinik for in-patient and out-patient procedures. The Hilotherm cooling system maintains precise temperatures, controlled by the patient for optimal comfort, between 5°C and 40°C — for recovery after a dental or surgery procedure, the ideal temperature for cooling treatment is between 15°C and 21°C.

Cooling with Hilotherm after surgery or other extensive procedure, can optimize natural healing and reduce or prevent swelling.

Unlike traditional cold compress or ice pack treatments, the Hilotherm® device can maintain temperatures at precise levels for extended periods of time, providing maximuim benefits. The treatment is well tolerated by all patients and it is not associated with hyperameia or changes in sensation and proprioception.

Combining the Hilotherm treatment with Dexamethasone offers a complete approach to combating post-surgery swelling, bruises, and discomfort. The Hilotherm® system helps support and enhance natural healing for an overall easier recovery after your dental surgery or procedure.

The Hilotherm® treatment is available as a take-home option as well, for patients who wish to continue the specialized cooling treatment for 2-3 days after a procedure. Contact our experienced dental specialists today for more information on Hilotherm® and other options for customizing treatment and optimizing results.
