Ultrasonic scalers are a type of dental tool that is used to quickly and effectively remove calculus from the tooth surface. The tip of the scaler vibrates in the ultrasonic range of 20 to 45 kHz, allowing it to break down hardened deposits on the tooth without causing any damage. This means that patients spend less time in the chair and reduces fatigue for the dentist. The ultrasonic scaler can also quickly remove persistent stains and tartar, which is why it is so popular. The tip of the tool moves so fast that it needs to be cooled with a constant flow of liquid, a process known as washing.
The scraping tips used in magnetostrictive units are called inserts, which describes how they fit into the handle. Magnetostrictive inserts are made up of a series of nickel alloy strips stacked on top of each other and attached to an embedding tip by a transducer. Magnetostrictive inserts come in two configurations: 30K or 25K. Most automatically adjusted machines use inserts shorter than 30K, while some units accept inserts of 25K or 30K. The dental scaler tip is an essential tool for dentists and hygienists as it helps them to quickly and effectively remove calculus, tartar, and stains from teeth. It is important to note that the tip must be cooled with a constant flow of liquid in order to prevent damage to the teeth.
Additionally, magnetostrictive inserts come in two configurations: 30K or 25K, with most automatically adjusted machines using inserts shorter than 30K. Using a dental scaler tip can help reduce patient time in the chair and reduce fatigue for the dentist. It is important to choose the right type of tip for your needs as this will ensure that you get the best results. Additionally, it is important to ensure that you use the correct technique when using a dental scaler tip in order to avoid any damage to the teeth.
