Unlike other ultrasonic tooth scalers that use a “jack hammer” approach to tooth scaling,
the 42-12 adopts a more gentle technique with its revolutionary rotational tip movement,
and ultrasonic removal of the plaque and calculus.
42-12 Ultrasonic Scaler
Scalers and Micromotors
The 42-12 rapidly removes heavy calculus deposits from all
tooth surfaces and is safe to use in periodontal pockets up
to 13 mm deep.
The 42-12 achieves a highly polished finish on the tooth
with less enamel damage by using an exceptionally high
ultrasonic frequency of 42,000 Hz, coupled with an extremely
low amplitude of the titanium scaler tip’s circular movement
of 0.02 mm.
Power is permanently set at a high 42,000 Hz frequency
(cycles) yet is safe to use in periodontal pockets up to 13 mm
deep. No other veterinary ultrasonic scaler can do this safely
because they produce too much heat.
Lightweight handpiece with finger on/off control right where
you need it, eliminating need for a foot control.
The rotational tip movement and high ultrasonic frequency
create a fine coolant mist which is adjustable.
Rapidly removes plaque and calculus from all tooth surfaces,
while using a lighter touch on the enamel than required of

Tip Wear Guide
Use the 42-12 Ultrasonic Scaler Tip Wear Guide to check
whether your ultrasonic scaler tip needs to be replaced.
1. Tip wear will significantly reduce scaler performance as
it will alter the ultrasonic frequency.
2. The ferrite rod must be tight – a loose or broken rod
will cause poor or no vibration.
3. A correctly functioning tip used on a power setting of
3-4 lights will produce a coolant mist around the tip.
