We are currently implementing new technology in our hygiene department. The state-of-the-art devices gently remove plaque and tartar and can deliver antibacterial solutions (0.12% Chlorhexidine Gluconate Oral Rinse) and fluoride (2.0% Neutral Sodium Fluoride Office Rinse). They can also deliver these medicaments in warm irrigation that increases the efficacy of both.
With the increase in evidence of the correlation of periodontal disease and systemic diseases such as coronary artery disease and diabetes, we are not just trying to save teeth but address potential overall health risks. We are also offering a new oral cancer screening technology called ViziLite® Plus.
The Pro-Select Platinum® is the only system available that combines scaling with heated subgingival irrigation.
What is it? How does it work?
In addition to being a superb piezo ultrasonic scaling solution, the Pro-Select Platinum® is the only system available that combines scaling with heated subgingival irrigation. Pro-Select Platinum® plays a crucial role for dental professionals in Soft Tissue Management®
Designed for Comfort
The unique features and benefits of the Pro-Select Platinum® system promote greater comfort (patient and dentist), support hygiene efficiency, expand infection control … The latest generation Pro-Select® scaler features Advanced Comfort Technology™, which delivers:
- High-speed linear tip motion

- Reduces the need for anesthesia for most patients
bility to deliver desensitizing agents during use
- Heated, subgingival irrigation, a soothing therapy after scaling and root planing billable therapy
- Effective for use on all adults – not just periodontal patients
- Safe for patients with pacemakers
- Lightweight, ergonomic hand piece designed to reduce muscle strain
- Feather-like touch: less pressure to effectively scale – from gross debridement to fine finishing
- Flexible, lightweight cord
- LED hand piece light: dramatically improves the clinician’s field of vision with high output, no heat LED technology
- Closed, multi-fluid system offers choice of using distilled water, chlorhexidine and fluoride in a simple, three medicament bottle design
- Innovative foot pedal design for hands-free control of key system functions
- Virtually eliminates the need for high pressure hand scaling during hygiene appointments
Hygiene Efficiency …
The Pro-Select Platinum® precision piezo ultrasonic generator delivers the fastest linear tip speed available (45,000 cycles/second) and is up to 80 percent faster than other ultrasonic scaling devices. The automatic tip speed adjustment maintains the tip speed even when clinical loads are encountered, and it allows the system to deliver more scaling per unit of time and increases efficiency.
Only Pro-Select Platinum® offers single tip technology with titanium tips shaped like a dental probe that offers 360 degrees of usable scaling surfaces. Hence, it allows the clinician to perform gross debridement to definitive root planing in one step, without changing tips, and improves access. it virtually eliminates the need for hand scaling during hygiene appointments!
