Acteon NEWTRON Periosoft Piezo-Electric Ultrasonic tips can be used safely on crowns. The Periosoft tips are made of a plastic alloy to perform an implant and prosthesis maintenance without scratching or damaging the surfaces. In Implant maintenance, the use of Periosoft tips prevents the retention of bacterial deposits and reduces the risk of periimplantitis. On ceramic prosthesis and veneers, those tips remove biofilm and loosely adhering deposits while preserving prosthetic surfaces. The Periosoft tips are also ideal for scaling procedures on patients with brackets. The new material of Periosoft tips makes them more efficient and resistant, however, they must be used at a very low power setting and with as little lateral pressure as possible.
Indications for Use
Implant and prosthesis maintenance:
- PH1 Plastic Implant Maintenance Tips. Plastic micro-tip for implants and ceramique crowns maintenance in anterior teeth. Eliminate biofilm and loosely adhering deposits without scratching the surface of the prosthesis. Polishing of the sulcus and grooves of natural teeth.
- PH2L Left and PH2R Right Plastic Implant Maintenance Tips. Plastic micro-tip, left-angled, for implants and ceramique crowns maintenance in posterior teeth. Maxillary: vestibular and distal surfaces of sector 2, pivote at 13 then palatal and mesial surfaces of sector 1. Mandibular: lingual and mesial surfaces of sector 3, pivote at 43 then vestibular and distal surfaces of sector 4.
For use with Acteon NEWTRON Ultrasonic Generators.
Periosoft tips available in 4-packs and different types:

Q: How do I change (or place) the tip?
A: The tip threads onto the end of the autoclavable handpiece (AHP). The tip-enclosing wrench provided prevents you from having to touch the actual tip. You orient the slot in the wrench around the base of the tip, press the wrench into place, and turn the tip counter-clockwise to loosen the tip. The tip should always either be applied on the AHP or inside the wrench. First, hand tighten a tip to the handpiece. Then align the hole of the wrench to the flat sides of the tip and press down. The wrench will lock into place. Now unscrew the wrench and the tip remains inside, helping prevent the loss of tips or injuring hands and fingers. Hand tightening only needs to be done the first time using the device or acquiring new tips and wrenches. The tip should remain in the wrench unless it’s in use. The torque wrenches have a special design that will prevent over-tightening of the tip on the AHP. When the tip is tight on the AHP, continue to force the wrench in a clockwise motion until you hear an audible “click”. You will then know the tip is sufficiently tight on the AHP. DO NOT DO THIS WITH THE FLAT COLOUR-CODED WRENCHES.
Q: Can I sharpen these tips?
A: No. These tips are not to be altered in any way. Sharpening these tips will negatively affect the tip’s ability to vibrate properly.
Q: How long do the tips last?
A: Most users experience at least 6 – 9 months of use prior to having to replace a tip due to its wear. ACTEON offers the widest variety of NEWTRON tip designs and manufactures the thinnest perio tips on the market. ACTEON was the first company to develop tips with an internal coolant spray, diamond coated tips and pure titanium tips for implant maintenance. ACTEON manufactures NEWTRON tips for all applications including:
- subgingival scaling
- root planing
- implant maintenance
- biofilm disruption
- cavity preparation
- margin preparation
- condensing of composites
- endodontic retreatment
- post and crown removal
- apical surgery
