Dental professionals use ultrasonic cleaners in their practice to effectively clean and disinfect oral appliances, dental instruments, and equipment.

The high-frequency sound waves generated in the cleaning solution create microscopic bubbles that implode and create a scrubbing action, effectively removing contaminants, debris, and microorganisms from surfaces, even in tiny crevices and hard-to-reach areas.

Oral appliances cleaned using ultrasonic cleaners include removable orthodontic appliances, dentures, night guards, and removable prosthetics, among others.

In a dental practice, ultrasonic cleaners are typically operated by dental assistants or dental hygienists, who are responsible for the proper sterilisation and maintenance of dental instruments and appliances.

The Dental pod is a ultrasonic cleaner designed for home use, allowing individuals to clean their oral appliances with the same technology employed by dental professionals. It offers the same efficacy in cleaning and disinfecting oral appliances, such as retainers, mouthguards, and night guards.

The main advantage of using a Dental pod is the convenience and ease of maintaining oral hygiene for appliances, ensuring they are consistently free from bacteria, plaque, and debris.
