“The Dental pod keeps aligners and retainers very clean, it is better than just using standard retainer cleaning tablets. Plus patients and I love the sleek aesthetic design, they've proved very popular.”
The Dental pod uses high-frequency dynamic 42,000 hz ultrasonic waves to vibrate the solution and produce millions of nano-scale bubbles.
These bubbles rapidly expand and collapse, releasing a large amount of energy, continuously scouring and smashing the grime, bacteria and plaque while being non abrasive to your dental appliance.
This action, called ‘cavitation’ occurs on average 4000 times per second, so all surfaces and gaps are continuously cleaned leading to a short but thorough cleaning cycle and a wonderful clean appliance.
The precise frequency required to produce the optimal level of cavitation depends on the amount of water in the device and the size/material of the oral appliance. Fortunately the Dental pod has a built in dynamic feedback feature that will analyse the contents and adjust to the optimal frequency for ultrasonic cavitation cleaning.
The Dental pod also includes an industry leading heat regulation system that will prevent the ultrasonic inducer from heating the water above 37 degrees celsius, this is the equivalent to the temperature of a human mouth which is what all oral appliances are designed for.
