Mr Terry, what topics will you be covering in your presentation?
I’ll be going over a number of topics related to the correct use of piezoelectric ultrasonic scalers. I will explain the rationale behind piezoelectric use in scaling and debridement, helping webinar participants to understand the clinical benefits it brings. The characteristics of the piezoelectric ultrasonic scaler—including tip motion, cavitation, acoustic streaming and irrigation—will be covered, and I’ll discuss and explain what contra-indications for its use exist.
What can dental professionals gain from watching the webinar?
They can gain a number of things. When using a piezoelectric scaler, it’s important that operators know how to correctly position both themselves and the patient in an ergonomic fashion, in order to help avoid long-term repetitive strain injuries. This will be discussed in the webinar, as will the correct tip placement of an EMS PIEZON scaler for both supra- and subgingival use in a pain-free manner.
Editorial note: The 1-hour webinar, titled “Is there a right way and wrong way to use PIEZON ultrasonics?”, will be presented live on Thursday, 23 April, at 12 p.m. CEST. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions about the topic, as well as earn a continuing education credit by answering a questionnaire after the lecture. Registration on the Swiss Dental Academy Online is free of charge.
