The Use of Ultrasonic Instrumentats in the Dental Practice
Journal of Pharmaceutical Research International,
The ultrasonic instrumentation in dentistry has been used since the middle of the last century. Improved visualization, ease of operation and precise cutting ability have allowed ultrasonic instruments to be widely used in dentistry. The study considers the possibilities of using ultrasound instruments in various fields of dentistry.
Advantages of ultrasonic instruments include conservative preparation of the cavity, less painful caries removal procedure and minimal noise generation. All these improvements are presented in clinical cases. In addition, the gentle effect on soft tissues is a characteristic feature of ultrasonic devices when applied to operative or orthopedic dentistry during the preparation of the cavity.
Although some issues, such as high-frequency noise, interference to cardiac pacemakers, and low cutting efficiency compared to conventional high-speed or low-speed air-turbine tools, still need to be considered, the results of previous research show that ultrasound tools have an extremely high potential to become a convenient and effective tool for various dental procedures deserve future development.
