piezoelectric ultrasonic device

pi·e·zo·e·lec·tric ul·tra·son·ic de·vice

(pē-ā'zō-ĕ-lek'trik ŭl'tră-son'ik dĕ-vīs')
An electronically powered tool that uses the rapid energy vibrations of a powered instrument tip to fracture calculus from the tooth surface and clean the environment of a periodontal pocket. This device consists of a portable electronic generator, a handpiece, and instrument inserts. The instrument tip of a piezoelectric instrument vibrates at 24,000-34,000 cycles per second.
