Ultrasonic Dental Scaler > 20,000 Hertz
Electric Ultrasonic Dental Scalers, referred to by many as cavitrons were born out of necessity. The need to quickly and safely remove the toughest calculus and stain has driven the technology to new heights. Most are now aware that "Sonic Wave Technology" is a major advancement in cleaning where tough stains are involved.
Ultrasonic Dental Scaler - Cavitron
The word "cavitron" is actually a registered trademark of Dentsply, the crowned king of electric ultrasonic dental scalers. Dentsply was so prolific in its development of the technology that the name cavitron became synonymous with ultrasonic dental scaler. You might say that Cavitron is to ultrasonic dental scaler as Coke is to carbonated beverage.
Fights Periodontal Disease
In the management of periodontal disease, one of the most powerful technologies available is the ultrasonic dental scaler. At 25,000 cycles per second (25 kHz) or higher, the ultrasonic tip vibration creates cavitation bubbles in the fluid. When these bubbles contact a surface, they collapse and release energy. Studies have shown that the energy created by the collapsing bubbles of the ultrasonic spray itself is lethal to some pathogens implicated in periodontal disease.
Provide Antimicrobial Therapy
This technology continues to improve, as does all dental technology, because modern practices demand the very best in quality and efficiency. Options for irrigation expand your choices for antimicrobial therapy, and powerful boost modes help to remove the toughest materials at (drum roll please) the speed of sound.
Ultrasonic Dental Scaler Tips or Inserts
Unique ultrasonic scaler tip, or if you prefer, ultrasonic scaler insert designs ad functionality to the unit, and make access easier to efficiently get the job done. Endodontic tips or inserts may also be available for use on units with the capability to switch to endodontic modes. With this addition, Cavitron type ultrasonic dental scalers are becoming an irreplaceable piece of equipment in the treatment room.
