Smaller tip motion (movement) means less enamel damage.
iM3 42-12 Ultrasonic Scaler (42,000 cycles)
Unlike the other scalers mentioned above, the iM3 42-12 Ultrasonic Scaler is unique because it uses high ultrasonic frequency, not the physical scraping
of the tooth, to remove plaque and calculus. The 42-12 tip is round and rotates in a circular motion (0.02 mm diameter) causing little or no enamel
damage. The tip has no sharp sides like the Piezo or Cavitron style scaler. The 42-12 scaling tip is made from titanium and is fitted with a ferrite rod (not
metal). The tip generates little or no heat and can be safely used subgingivally up to 13 mm.
The big advantages of the 42-12 is the speed at which a prophylaxis can be performed and the ability to be used safely subgingivally. Many users report
that scaling time is reduced by half when compared to previous scalers used.
