Why hygienist love working with the PT3 piezo ultrasonic scaler:
Beautiful black and white look with a touch panel you can use even with wet gloves.
Easy to change the water with internal and external water options: Can use Chlorhexidine, Hydrogen peroxide and Sodium Hypochlorite.
Tips are made of titanium, which is strong but flexible to avoid damage to tooth structure. Other scalers’ tips are made of stainless steel. PT3 tips are more economical $95 compared to $155 for other piezo scalers.
The flexible titanium tips are softer than tooth cementum, to prevent damaging root cementum which can cause sensitive teeth.
PT3 won’t damage cementum or enamel like other brands’ scalers so it preserves more of patients’ teeth and will not cause cervical erosion.
The tip moves with a unique 360 degree elliptical vibration, which is better for disrupting the plaque biofilm. It scales and polishes at the same time. Other piezo scalers only have linear vibration.
Built in LED light has a soft diffuser to avoid bright dazzling light hitting the operator’s eyes, for more long term operator comfort.
Comes ready for clinical action with 2 handpieces, 10 tips, 2 torque wrenches, two stainless steel sterilzation trays,
