ULTRASONIC SCALER - Vista dental Products

The piezo Pilot offers unprecedented power in a quiet, compact, lightweight design, and its innovative features and state-of-the-art circuitry give the user the widest range of amplitude settings for high-end performance. It has a greater power range than average. Its low range is great for normal endodontic applications and its midrange for perio and hygiene, but the exceptional feature is its upper range. It was tested with piezo surgical tips and found to have enough power to do both endodontic and implants. The Pilot is available in 6 colors with matching autoclavable handpiece sleeves and includes a set of 4 ultrasonic hygiene tips or endodontic tips.
