Can cavitron tips go in the ultrasonic?

Can cavitron tips go in the ultrasonic?

Cavitron® inserts are to be used with magnetostrictive ultrasonic scalers to perform: All general supra and subgingival scaling applications. Periodontal debridement for all types of periodontal diseases.

Can ultrasonic scaling damage teeth?

Conclusions: The results of this study suggest that ultrasonic scaling can cause further damage to teeth with enamel cracks, early caries and resin restorations. Therefore, accurate identification of tooth conditions and calculus before the initiation of ultrasonic scaling is necessary to minimize damage.

How long does a cavitron tip last?

Inserts will last approximately 8-15 months depending on the type of tip and hours used. Periodically check Inserts for wear with the Cavitron™ Insert Efficiency Indicator. Are your Cavitron™ inserts worn?

Why are my cavitron tips bending?

When using a worn tip, generally more pressure is applied or generator power is increased to compensate for the efficiency loss—often leading to patient discomfort and increasing the possibility of tip bending/breakage. Measure tip wear on a weekly basis and replace inserts as they wear and lose efficiency.

What does a cavitron do?

During a dental wellness visit, the Cavitron uses a steady flow of water to wash away the debris that it has loosened from your teeth. The water also helps flush away loose bacteria that have made themselves at home in the pockets between your teeth and gums.

Can you use cavitron with pacemaker?

Magnetostrictive (Cavitron®) instruments may affect unipolar pacemakers, thus contraindicating their use. If the use of a magnetostrictive ultrasonic is prohibited, a sonic or piezoelectric instrument may be used as an adjunct to hand debridement.

Does a cavitron hurt?

Additionally, the patient said that when I use the Cavitron, it does not hurt at all, but when the other hygienist uses it, it is extremely painful. I use my Cavitron on low power with a steady, warm water drip which cuts down on sensitivity.

Is manual scaling better than ultrasonic?

Manual scalers are as effective as ultrasonic ones for clearing plaque and tartar from easy-to-reach areas of the teeth. In fact, the ease with which manuals scalers can be picked up and used as needed can make these tools better suited to removing minor accumulations of plaque.
