SECTION 3: Warnings
It is the responsibility of the Dental Healthcare
Professional to determine the appropriate uses of this
product and to understand the health of each patient,
the dental procedures being undertaken, and industry
and governmental agency recommendations,
requirements, and regulations for safe practice of
Persons fitted with cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators
and other active implanted medical devices, have been
cautioned that some types of electronic equipment
might interfere with the operation of the device.
Although no instance of interference has ever been
reported to DENTSPLY, we recommend that the
handpiece and cables be kept 6 to 9 inches (15 to 23
cm) away from any device and their leads during use.
There are a variety of pacemakers and other medically
implanted devices on the market. Clinicians should
contact the device manufacturer or the patient's
physician for specific recommendations. This unit
complies with IEC 60601 Medical Device Standards.
Failure to follow the recommendations for environmental
operating conditions, including input water temperature,
could result in injury to patients or users.
The use of High Volume Saliva Evacuation to reduce
the quantity of aerosols released during treatment is
highly recommended.
Do not direct the air polishing stream at soft tissue or
into the sulcus. Tissue emphysema has been reportedly
caused when the air/water/powder stream was directed
at the soft tissue or into the sulcus.
Where asepsis is required or deemed appropriate in
the best professional judgment of the Dental Healthcare
Professional, this product should not be used.
During boil-water advisories, this product should not
be operated as an open water system (e.g. connected
to a public water system). A Dental Healthcare
Professional should disconnect the system from the
central water source. The Cavitron DualSelect system
can be attached to this unit and operated as a closed
system until the advisory is cancelled. When the
advisory is cancelled, flush all incoming waterlines
from the public water system (e.g. faucets, waterlines
and dental equipment) in accordance with the
manufacturer's instructions for a minimum of 5 minutes.
Prior to beginning treatment, patients should rinse with
an antimicrobial such as Chlorhexidine Gluconate 0.12%.
Rinsing with an antimicrobial reduces the chance of
infection and reduces the number of microorganisms
released in the form of aerosols during treatment.
