Got Vibes? Optimize the Debride:In this new age of Periodontal Debridement, the use of ultrasonic instruments as the standard of care is not only accepted, but also expected. The mechanisms of ultrasonic debridement are influenced by both operational and technique variables. With an understanding of how these variables influence the efficacy and efficiency of deposit removal, the clinician can modify the variables properly in order to optimize the debridement procedure.
