Best cavitron tip for cleaning under lower lingual retainers?

Another hygienist and I are trying to select a cavitron tip that will be good to help clean underneath permanent lower lingual retainers. Any suggestions are great appreciated!!

I use a purple slim line cavitron tip. It’s pretty thin at the tip so I am able to adapt it around the retainer without damaging the gingiva. I still have to go over it with a scaler and floss afterwards of course but the slim line removes most of the calculus for me.

Left and right focused spray works well as does any slimline insert.
