pod Standard Scaler

Please log in to order

Scalers are used for cleaning debris from the crown of teeth. The pod veterinary dental standard scaler has a straight blade at one end and a curved sickle blade at the other end. The straight blade is ideal for removing deposits from the buccal and lingual faces of the crown, while the curved sickle blade is designed for interproximal spaces and overlapping areas with tight spaces.



There is a degree of skill and understanding required for the successful use of a scaler. Position the scaler so that 1/3rd of the blade is positioned under the deposit. Adjust position so that the blade is at an angle of approximately 85 degrees to the tooth surface. Apply lateral pressure and firmly pull the instrument upwards to dislodge deposits. The dual bladed sides allow the instrument to be used on both mesial and distal aspects of the tooth, but care must be taken not to damage soft tissue.


Remember that pod Instruments will recycle your old instruments. When you send us your old dental or surgical instruments the stainless steel is recycled and used to make the handles of brand new pod veterinary dental instruments. Help us by acting responsibly to care for our environment.
