Scaling is a conventional non-surgical procedure that removes and eliminates plaque and calculus. This is important since plaque and calculus incubate bacteria that release toxins, which cause inflammation to the gum and surrounding bone. The process of scaling also reduces the chances of infection of the periodontium resulting in less swelling and bleeding.
Ultrasonic scalers were first introduced in 1955 for cleaning calculus off teeth. Their usage has steadily increased over the last three decades, becoming widely used for removing plaque and calculus. Ultrasonic scalers work by way of vibrational energy, as the scaler tip oscillates at high frequency to help to break apart the tough mineralized calculus. The tip also sprays a jet of water that aids in flushing away debris and helps in keeping the tooth cool. Although there is debate about ultrasonic scalers being an acceptable alternative to hand cleaning instruments, the common practice is for hygienists to use the ultrasonic first, followed by a more detailed cleaning with hand instruments.
Over the forecast period, growth in the market for ultrasonic scalers will be strong. A growing emphasis on preventative care and the expansion in the number of dental hygienists is a strong factor driving growth in this area. The adoption of ultrasonic scaling by hygienists is an important advancement in preventative care and this trend is expected to continue. Technological advancements such as piezoelectric technology and fiber-optic illumination have also had a positive impact on replacement sales in this segment, further driving market value.
Continued growth in the popularity of ultrasonic scaling among dental hygienists will have an ongoing positive impact on growth in this segment.
