Insight by Product

Amongst all, the oscillatory market segment held the largest share in the global market for periodontal scalers and curettes in 2020, these are power-driven scalers, as high vibrational energy is produced in the oscillation generator, which is then driven to the tip of the scaler. These are air-to-turbine units that run at extremely low frequencies between 3000 to 8000 cycles/second.

Ultrasonic scalers are powered by generators that transform energy into ultrasonic waves and a tip acceleration of between 20,000 and 40,000 cycles per second. These scalers are commonly used by dental practitioners as they tend to be highly effective in tearing down calculus formation over scalers. Mechanical scalers are the dental instruments used to manually extract stones from developmental and blood grooves in teeth.
