The Vector® principle – the benchmark in the business of painless treatment
Vector®: Powerful with ultrasound
Over 20 years ago, DÜRR DENTAL developed its unique vibration deflection and set new standards in the field of painless, minimally invasive periodontitis treatment with the Vector® System. The ultrasonic energy is diverted to the place where it is needed in a linear direction and instruments move parallel to the surface of the root. This enables vibration-free operation and can be incorporated into a clinically efficient and minimally invasive treatment plan.
Conducted through the ring
The Vector® principle skilfully reshapes ultrasonic oscillations into a linear up-and-down motion. The core element is a resonance ring, which is briefly deformed by high frequency stimulation and then returns to its starting position. With this ultra-rapid change of shape, the resonance ring reshapes the ultrasonic oscillations through 90° into a linear movement of the instrument. This means that instruments move axially in parallel to the tooth surface, eliminating the unwanted vibrations that otherwise occur while working.
The Vector® system – a synergy of design and function
I have been working with Vector® for over 15 years. Treatment outcomes are much better than with standard periodontal treatment. Long-term follow-ups back this up too.
