dental scaler

A dental scaler is an instrument used to remove plaque and calculus from the surfaces of teeth during professional cleanings.

Dental scalers can be classified according to their mode of action:

  • Manual scalers, which are hand instruments held like pens to clean the teeth. These include Sickle Scalers, Anterior Jacquette and Posterior Jacquette scalers.
  • Ultrasonic scalers, which are powered devices that use tips that move at an ultrasonic frequency ranging from 20-45 Khz to clean.

Major manufacturers of manual scalers include Maillfare and Martin. Ultrasonic scaler manufacturers include Dentamerica, Satellec, and TPC.
