I first start with the blue dentsply cavitron insert focused spray with the triple bend and go around everywhere dependent on each pocket depth. Then use gracey’s, sometimes files etc…hand scale and root plan everywhere. Then finish up with green dentsply cavitron inserts Left and Right Slimline Focused Spray and basically fine scale everywhere. Then I floss, irrigate with chx and go over perio home care instructions and reappoint back in 6-8 weeks for 4910 Re-eval probing depths and retreat any areas not responding well and decide if the pt needs to come back in 3 or 4 month 4910/Perio Maintenance continued care intervals.

Don’t know if you want instrument technique or general apt flow tips. I start with a cavitron, then switch to gracey’s go back to cavitron. Your explorer is your best friend, check & recheck until no calc left. Make sure your pt is comfortable, its too hard to do the job correctly if your pt not completely comfortable. Sometimes all it takes is oraquix other times you’ll have to fully numb them. Use your x-rays also. Hope this helps!
