Piezo Ultrasonic Scaler

Ultrawave piezoelectric ultrasonic device offers an intuitive design and Reflex technology that will give you and your patients a level of superior performance and gentle comfort other ultrasonic devices simply can’t. Scaling, endo, perio, and restorative procedures are now easier than ever, thanks to new advancements in piezoelectric technology. The Ultrawave device's Color-Coding System and wide variety of tips makes instrument management simple and efficient.

  • Piezo’s linear motion provides easier, more comfortable, and more efficient scaling
  • Reflex technology allows automatic frequency adjustments creating a high precision application
  • Lightweight and ergonomic handpiece reduces physical stress caused by repetitive movements
  • The unique Color-Coding System matches tips to the ideal power setting
  • Wide range of amplitudes (power) for multiple clinical procedures
  • Less water needed than other devices, increasing patient comfort
  • Connects directly with your in-office water supply for constant flow
  • Compact design of unit makes it portable and easy to fit on a counter or treatment tray

Technical Details

Reflex Autotuning System

The Ultrawave device’s automatic frequency adjustment is 28 kHz–36 kHz, so the tip is always tuned into the right vibration frequency. The push-pull response gently controls the amplitude of the tip vibration, so treatments are performed with smooth and comfortable vibrations. The Ultrawave device uses an intelligent, real-time power adjuster to keep power just right according to the resistance met by the tip.

Color-Coding System

​​​Ultrawave piezoelectric unit offers exceptional ease of use through the Color-Coding System. Matching the right tip to the right power is simple and reliable. The colors green, blue, yellow, and orange allow tips to be used with the most efficient corresponding power setting on the control dial of the devices.

Variety of Procedures

Scaling & Restoration
Supragingival and subgingival tips are ideal for standard scaling. Ball-diamond tips are ideal for preparing small proximal cavities.

Perio tips allow for a full-mouth periodontal debridement by crisscrossing root surfaces using low lateral pressure and amplitude.

Endodontics & Apical Surgery
These tips are specially designed for challenging applications during root canal treatments, including removal of calcification and retreatment.

Post Removal
The ETPR tip is the ideal tool for loosening posts.


Before You Begin Using Ultrawave Piezo Ultrasonic Scaler

See Instructions for Use for complete instructions, warnings, and precautions.

Step 1

​Before beginning any procedure, check to ensure the water is a slow but constant flow.

Based on the type of procedure you’re about to perform, select the corresponding tip and power setting. NOTE: A tip can be used with the matching color of its power level or lower. Do not match a tip with a power level higher than its corresponding color.

Step 2

Using the appropriate wrench, securely attach the tip to the handpiece. Adjust the water so that a light spray or slow paced drops of water is expressed from the tip. Water will need to be adjusted to fit the procedure and the specific tip used for that procedure.

Step 3

​After the procedure, if any solution other than water was used during the process, it is imperative to completely flush the unit and handpiece with clean water for two minutes.
