Compares to EMS® Piezon Master 700®
The Woodpecker PT Master 5 is the most interesting periodontal treatment device on the market today.
Cavitron®-style (magnetostrictive) scalers are underpowered for calculus removal and can cause sensitivity when used on exposed dentin. The can also damage implants.
Now you can have effective plaque and calculus removal with minimal discomfort. This incredible piezo ultrasonic scaler will turn your patients into advocates, promoters, and loyal followers of your practice.
It includes the P90 thermoplastic polymer scaler tip for cleaning implants and abutments.
If you are still using 1970’s era Cavitron ®-style magnetostrictive technology for scaling, you are missing out on all these advantages of an evolved Piezo Ultrasonic Scaler:
Advantages of Woodpecker PT Master 5 Piezo Ultrasonic Scaling Technology:
Piezo scalers require less water to control heat. The are more comfortable for patients with breathing conditions such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
The piezo scalers can also be used on all patients with pacemakers, whereas magnetostrictive (Cavitron ®-style) scalers may not.
Metal stacks on magnetostrictive inserts can be easily bent, which could impair vibration and overall function. This is not an issue for the PT Master 5 piezo scaler.
The Woodpecker PT Master 5 piezo handpiece is also wider and therefore more ergonomically designed than the thinner magnetostrictive Cavitron®-style handpiece.
Since the entire handpiece does not vibrate, there is greater tactile sensitivity with the piezo scaler.
Patients are more comfortable with the piezo scaler due to the milder vibrations and decreased water output compared to Cavitron®-style scalers.
LED lighting allows you to see how you are adapting the instrument tip to the tooth.
Woodpecker PT Master 5 Piezo scaling tips are made of titanium and are very durable. Cavitron ®-style tips are fragile and expensive with long metal strips that can easily bend and lose their effectiveness.
The whole piezo scaling handpiece is detachable and can be sterilized so it is more hygienic than a Cavitron®-style scaler.
Piezo scaler allows of the use of medicated solutions like Chlorhexidine for additional patient benefit and additional billable procedures.
Cavitron®-style scalers can cause a rougher surface than a piezoelectric instrument with more tooth surface damage. Piezo scalers uses a low mechanical impact force and will not damage tooth surfaces.
If given the choice, patients prefer the piezoelectric power scaler over the magnetostrictive (Cavitron®-style) scaler.
Features Of the Woodpecker PT Master 5 Piezo Ultrasonic Scaler:
The precision piezo ultrasonic generator and flexible titanium scaling tips can perform all functions from gross debridement to definitive root planing and eliminate the need for hand scaling during hygiene.
Piezoelectric scaling technology uses a very small vibrating amplitude for maximum patient comfort and improves recall compliance.
The PT 5 features a superior design with a lightweight detachable handpiece and LED light for dramatically improved operator visibility.
The lightweight handpiece reduces muscle strain and effective scaling can be performed with very little pressure and minimizes operator fatigue.
Choice of distilled water or medicated rinse for irrigation in a simple and self contained single bottle design.
Tough, durable, and economical titanium tips when compared to fragile high cost magnetostrictive (Cavitron®-style) tips
Uses a light lateral pressure so that patients can literally sleep through their maintenance appointment.
The scaling tip operate with a unique circular vibration that disperses the impact force and increases patient comfort.
Here is how the Woodpecker PT Master 5 can help you upgrade your hygiene practice:
Consistent Hygiene Revenue is Key to Practice Growth.
Most dental practices report a high revenue from periodontal maintenance procedures, but the details of this crucial preventative treatment are often overlooked. Hygienists are left to struggle with antiquated, defective or inefficient scaling units and scaling tips that are literally “bent out of shape.” The high cost of replacing fragile magnetostrictive (Cavitron®-style) tips have made it challenging to maintain a highly effective periodontal treatment device in most dental clinics, until now!
Patients desire effective maintenance and will refer others for this treatment.
Periodontal systemic links between periodontal disease and heart and other conditions are frequently featured in the media and have kept the public interest in obtaining periodontal treatment at at a very high level. Patients do notice the difference between a thorough cleaning with cutting edge technology and simply “going through the motions” with a defective device. A thorough debridement creates grateful patients that will be sure to refer others. It is a sure way to gain treatment acceptance and helps insure that your patients make and keep their maintenance appointments and become advocates, promoters and loyal followers of your practice.
More comfortable scaling ensures patient compliance.
It can be hard for patients to comply with a three month maintenance program, which includes taking time off work, driving to your office, and parking four times a year, and they are far more likely to accept your recommended maintenance schedule if you don’t hurt them! Piezoelectric scaling technology uses a very small vibrating amplitude for maximum patient comfort and improves recall compliance. It reduces the need for anesthesia for most patients, is effective for all adults, not just periodontal patients, and uses a light lateral pressure so that patients can literally sleep through their maintenance appointment.
Superior design with a lightweight detachable handpiece and LED light.
Woodpecker Piezo handpieces feature LED light for dramatically improved operator visibility. It reduces the risk of accidental injury and increases precision and safety in scaling. The detachable handpieces can also be autoclaved to prevent cross infection.
Eliminates the need for tedious and uncomfortable hand scaling and does not injure cementum.
The precision piezo ultrasonic generator and flexible titanium scaling tips can perform all functions from gross debridement to definitive root planing and eliminate the need for hand scaling during hygiene appointments. Piezo ultrasonic scaling increases efficiency and productivity and reduces the risk of injury to cementum and periodontal ligament fibers when compared to hand scaling. The lightweight handpiece reduces muscle strain and effective scaling can be performed with very little pressure (less than 4 grams!) which reduces operator fatigue. The scaling tip operate with a unique circular vibration that disperses the impact force and increases patient comfort.
Closed fluid delivery system can deliver therapeutic fluids and enhances infection control.
PT Master 5 Piezo Scaler offers the choice of distilled water or medicated rinse for irrigation in a simple and self contained single bottle design. This closed fluid delivery system reduces the risk of biofilm contamination from a potentially contaminated public water supply. The use of a medicated solution can enhance practice production from additional subgingival irrigation billable services.
Low operating costs and consistent efficiency:
Magnetostrictive (Cavitron®-style) tips are quickly worn out, broken or bent in real world use and replacement tips are absurdly expensive. This high cost of replacement often results in worn or malfunctioning tips being used and many patients are left with residual plaque and calculus due to ineffective scaling. PT Master 5 Piezo Ultrasonic Scaler features tough, durable, and economical titanium tips when compared to fragile high cost magnetostrictive tips and this ensures you will always deliver highly effective scaling performance to your patients.
