Satelec Piezo scaler too loud on patients posterior molars?

I have many patients jump from the chair when I’m using my satelec on their maxillary posterior molars and claim they have never experienced this before even though the other hygienist uses the satelec on every single patient. Am I doing something wrong? Or is this a common complaint?

I have not used that particular unit, however, you might want to check the power level (turn it down?) and pressure/force (use less force?) you are using. Sorry I cannot be of more help on this one!

I worked in an office that had these units, and I found the same thing to be true, even with only the slightest amount of pressure. I was the only hygienist, but the doctor would also do cleanings sometimes. I noticed that he kept his on a much lower setting than mine, but I always felt like it didn’t perform well at lower settings. And it seemed liked they needed frequent repair. Not a huge fan.
