What is Stryker Sonopet?
Ultrasonic Aspirator System. The Sonopet iQ Ultrasonic Aspirator not only delivers the power and control you need to fragment, emulsify and aspirate soft tissue and bone, but is also equipped with on-demand customizable features and RFID-enabled intelligence to help optimize your performance.
How does an ultrasonic aspirator work?
Ultrasonic Aspirators (UA) utilize ultrasonic frequency vibrations generated by a piezoelectric element in the handpiece to remove tissue. Continuous irrigation emulsifies dissected particles, and simultaneous aspiration removes fragments and liquid resulting in a comparatively clean surgical field.
What does cavitron mean?
A Cavitron is a high frequency sound wave tooth used by our hygienists to clean teeth. The ultrasonic sound waves vibrate the dirt, tarter, and plaque off teeth. Although it kills pathogens which may cause periodontal disease, is doesn’t remove all the calculus.
Can ultrasonic scaling damage gums?
There has been a rise in recent years of ultrasonic scalers available through a simple click of a button, but users should be wary that improper use of these tools can potentially lead to gum damage, gum recession, and infection.
Is LigaSure bipolar?
LigaSure (bipolar vessel sealing) technology is a radiofrequency-driven bipolar electrosurgical device. A tissue-based feedback program is used to regulate the dose of energy administered, which is appropriate for bulk tissue or vessel density, and the aim is to limit the heat generated in the target tissue.
Are ultrasonic plaque removers safe?
Unlike manual teeth scalers, ultrasonic teeth scalers leave less damage on the enamel, making it a safer tooth cleaning option even for the elderly or people with weaker teeth. This means that ultrasonic teeth cleaning is completely safe.
Are electric toothbrushes safe for pacemakers?
Other appliances that contain a magnet include handheld hairdryers, older shavers with an electrical cord, large stereo speakers, electric toothbrushes and base chargers of ultrasonic toothbrushes. If you do use any of these, keep them 16cm (6in) away from your pacemaker.
