Scalers and Micromotors
The Ultrasonic difference - Amplitude, Frequency and Tip Motion.
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 (0.02mm 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.
Not all ultrasonic scalers
are the same!
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.
