Periodontal debridement

Non-surgical periodontal treatment, accessible to generalists and specialists, aims at eliminating the microbial biofilm, etiologic agent of gingivitis and periodontitis.

SATELEC® has developed specially designed micro-tips for more efficient mechanical treatments in accordance with the most recent research findings.

H3 tip: "Anterior teeth".

  • Ideal tip to begin with, for the treatment of anterior teeth.
  • The guiding edge is used parallel to the pocket.


Ref: F00114JPEG

H4L tip: "Premolars and molars". 

  • First tip in the sequence. Left angled.
  • Recommended for the treatment of all surfaces and furcations:
    • Mandibular: The lingual and mesial surfaces of sector 3, then the buccal and distal surfaces of sector 4. Pivoted at 43.
    • Maxillary: The buccal and distal surfaces of sector 1, then the palatal and mesial surfaces of sector 2. Pivoted at 13.

H4R tip: "Premolars and molars"

  • Second tip in the whole-mouth sequence. Right angled.
  • Follows the H4L tip in the treatment sequence. Recommended for the treatment of all surfaces and furcations:
    • Mandibular: Buccal and distal surfaces of sector 3, then lingual and mesial surfaces of sector 4. Pivoted at 43.
    • Maxillary: The buccal and distal surfaces of sector 1, then the palatal and mesial surfaces of sector 2. Pivoted at 13.

Clinical applications 

These micro-tips make it possible to perform a full-mouth periodontal debridement treatment. All the inserts have a similar profile of a universal curette.

The distale surface of the last segment of every tip has an angle of 90° with regard to the handle. The extremity of the mini-inserts is in ¼ of circle to avoid any traumatism or cut. The 2 active edges serve as guide to eliminate the calculations and the deposits without risk of damaging the fibers of the connective tissue. 

The micro-tips operate in the opposite direction to manual curettes (ie. using a push stroke without scraping). They should be moved from the sulcular opening towards the bottom of the
pocket without excessive lateral pressure (0.3 to 0.5N).
The calculus is removed by methodically crisscrossing all root surfaces, while the biofilm is mechanically disrupted and eliminated by irrigation. Residual deposits are removed from pockets and cementum surfaces are decontaminated by the bacteriostatic effect of micro-cavitation.

Tip equivalents

  • H3: Anterior teeth and premolars. Replaces manual curettes nos. 1–2, 3–4, and 5–6.
  • H4L and H4R: Premolars and molars. Replace manual curettes nos. 7–8, 9–10, 11–12, and 13–14.
