FOR DENTISTS AND DENTAL HYGIENISTS
scaling and surface cleaning
To encourage patients to take up the Lyre-JetŪ rapidly, dental surgeons
are advised to adopt the following procedure to eliminate all interproximal
Stage 1 - Ultrasound
Suggested equipment : Siemens or similar ultrasound probe No. 3
or 4. Areas to be treated: supragingival, juxtagingival and intrasulcular
vestibular, lingual, mesial and distal surfaces.
Stage 2 - Curette
Suggested equipment: LM Dental "Micro Sickle" syntette curette or
equivalent. Areas to be treated: as for stage 1.
Stage 3 - Bicarbonate air-polisher
Suggested equipment: Airflow S1 EMS or equivalent. Areas to be treated:
as for stage 1.
Stage 4 - Stripping
This stage completes scaling of the most inaccessible areas, particularly
immediately below the points of contact where the instruments used
in stages 1 and 2 are ineffective.
Suggested equipment : Extra-fine grain-size diamond strips such
as GC New Metal Strips, grain size 1,000 (yellow) width 2.6 mm,
length 133 mm, thickness 50 microns. Areas to be treated: under
the contact points and on mesial and distal surfaces, including
Daily use of the Lyre-JetŪ will ensure that treated interproximal
spaces remain smooth and clean.
