The Micro-motor polisher makes up an essential part of the scaling program. Polishing (with prophy paste and prophy cups) smooths the tooth surface and helps prevent plaque building up again too rapidly after scaling (scaling leaves the tooth surface rough). The micro-motor is a low speed, high torque motor, with variable speeds from 300 to 30,000 RPM. Lower speeds up to 2,500 RPM are used for polishing, while higher speeds are used for cutting.
