SRP sequence

What sequence do you usually use with SRP? Wondering favorite instrument routine/techniques. Do you start with Ultrasonic, and or with files? And do you use soft scale? Thanks!

Never have used soft scale. This question has been asked before and you need to research this site. I have responded my sequence before and there is great information on previous questions. It depends on what I will use dependent upon PD, calculus amount, furcations etc… Normal run of the mill S/RP I use triple bend focus spray then hand instruments ie: gracys 13/14, 15/16, 17/18 etc. then I use left and right focus spray inserts at the end.

I usually start with hand instruments, most often rigids, inorder to get an idea of the kind of calculus that is sub g and how the tissues feel. I agree that you will find your sequence. I alternate a fair bit. Always ending with a cavi of all areas worked on.

This is from Dentsply website. I’ve never used this product. Usually the ultrasonic or piezo will work just fine. The product could be pretty pricy.

Soft Scale Gel is used to remove calculus. Soft Scale breaks the bond between calulas and the tooth surface. Compatible with dental restorative materials and will not harm enamel, dentin or cementum.
