What should take into account when choosing ultrasonic scaler

A) Headpiece
The headpiece is a fundamental element in the ultrasonic scaler dental because it is essential that it is compatible with the tips that will be used. As we already know, these components work directly in the patient's mouth, so it is also important that they are self-cleaning at a temperature of 135ºC to allow for proper disinfection. Two other relevant aspects related to handpieces are their frequency and amplitude.

B) Ultrasonic tips
Ultrasonic tips, also known as inserts, are paired with each ultrasonic device, so generally each manufacturer produces and recommends their own tips. The DTE brand however has released some ultrasonic equipment compatible with tips from other manufacturers such as Satelec, the world leader in ultrasonic equipment. Nevertheless, we must take into account that when selecting one specific brand from the market, we will automatically be choosing tips from that same manufacturer. Therefore it is vital that we inform ourselves of the prices and features (size, material etc.) that a brand has to offer before purchasing our ultrasonic device.

Division of ultrasonic devices
Integrated in the dental chair. When we buy this type of ultrasonic equipment we must be aware that it is going to be integrated into the dental chair forever.

Independent without water tank. This type of ultrasonic equipment always needs to be connected to a water source whether it is the water supply from the dental chair or an external tank. Just like the devices integrated in the dental unit, these aren’t suitable for performing treatments that require other liquids than water.

Ultrasonic Scaler with Water Bottle. These devices can function in a totally autonomous way as they have a built in tank, they do not need to be connected to a water source. Thanks to this the device can be easily transported from one place to another, and they are also suitable for periodontics treatments. For this we recommend that you take a look at this scaler from the DTE brand which works independently and contains a kit with 8 tips and a stainless steel case.

What is it important to consider when selecting a dental unit?

Choosing the right dental chair is important for you to avoid any work-related pain. A desirable chair should aid in a neutral posture of the spine, shoulder, and wrist, support proper body mechanics, and limited excessive reaching. A common problem experienced is difficulty in gaining close proximity to the oral cavity without excessive forward leaning. This can cause dysfunction, shoulder pain or back pain to the dentist.

In addition to the supply systems required for the proper functioning of the dental unit, there are three important elements to consider:
Space requirement: the area available for the installation of a dental unit will determine the number of elements as well as the configuration (compact or not) of the system.

Applications: the care given can vary and cover a range of odontology specializations such as endodontics, periodontics, implantology, etc. There are some units specifically designed for orthodontics, for example. It is important to keep this in mind, especially for the configuration of instrument holders.

Mobility: you might need your dental unit to be portable. There are portable dental turbine unit that fit in a suitcase weighing about ten kilos. They can be equipped with an integrated air compressor for the operation of compressed air handpieces for example. These units are ideal for specific missions or mobile dental clinics.

In all, the discerning buyer would discover that the dental chair of great quality most times has the clientele in mind. It offers the buyers great opportunity for longetivity, productivity, effectiveness, safety and an improved work environment for the professionals and their patients.
