Acteon Periodontal Biofilm Disruption Tips
F01001 No TK1-1S: Sort Probe.
Graduated every 3mm, the TK1-1S tip is recommended for examining shallow and medium pockets (< 4mm) and for the maintenance of simple cases.
F01004 No. TK1-1L: Long Probe.
Recommended for examination and maintenance of medium to deep pockets (> 4mm). It is diagnosis aid during the4 debridement and irrigation of pockets.
The TK1 Probe tips are used without pressure following the contour of the pockets and skimming over the root surface.
F02162 No. TK2-1L: Molar and premolar sectors, left-oriented.
Recommended for the maintenance of moderate to deep pockets and furcations. Equivalent to the Nabers probe.
F02161 No. TK2-1R: Molar and premolar sectors, right-oriented.
Complimentary to the TK2-1L, this tip is recommended for the maintenance of moderate to deep pockets and furcations. Equivalent to the Nabers probe.
Preserve Teeth With Perfect Ultrasonic Vibrations and Steel Tip Quality
Acteon® equipment technologies and tips responds to practitioners clinical expertise.
The ultrasonic micro-oscillations transmitted from the handpiece to the tip generate perfectly linear movement. Therefore the tip undergoes to-and-fro movements in the axis of the handpiece.
The active area of each tip is located on the distal 2-3mm. This working section may be applied on the surface to be treated, moving progressively from the crown to the root.
The linear movement of the tip can be used in various ways which are also complimentary:
Sweeping: indicated for scaling and disrupting the biofilm.
The tip must be applied tangentially on the part to be treated, and used over its entire active section.
Hammering: used to fragment large tartar deposits and remove cements.
The tip must be positioned facing the element to be detached, and used without pressure on its point.
The unmatched performance of Newtron® technology paves the way for more precise, faster and painless procedures.
The frequency (number of oscillations per second) of each tip adjusts in real time:
- Better tactile sense
- No power loss
- Soft tissue preservation
The amplitude (tip movement) is perfectly controlled and constant:
- Very regular sweeping effect
- Gentle vibrations giving a pain-free treatment
The power required is instantly adjusted depending on the resistance encountered by the tip:
- No pressure necessary
- Decrease fatigue for the practitioner
- Greater efficiency
The ultrasonic vibrations also cause a biological effect called cavitation, which has interesting benefits.
When a liquid is exposed to ultrasonic vibrations, the acoustic wave induces quite large pressure changes to create small bubbles of vapor called cavitation.
These bubbles are extremely unstable and burst violently, leading to the fragmentation and removal of the deposits.
In addition cavitation creates micro-bubbles of oxygen which have a cleansing, disinfectant effect.
