Installation and Service Manual
Please read carefully and completely before operating unit.
Please read carefully and completely before operating unit.
Introduction
Cavitron® BOBCAT® Pro Ultrasonic Scaler
DENTSPLY® Professional is an ISO13485 certified company. All products are CE registered. The Cavitron®
BOBCAT® Pro Ultrasonic Scaler is classified by
Underwriters Laboratories Inc. with respect to electric shock,
fire, mechanical hazards only in accordance with UL 60601-1
and Can/CSA C22.2 NO. 601.1 assigned control #13VA.
The Cavitron BOBCAT Pro Ultrasonic Scaler meets the
EMC standards of EN 60601-1-2:2001 and FCC Part 18
that includes limits for radiated and conducted emissions,
as well as requirements for immunity to electrostatic discharge, surges, power interruptions and electromagnetic
interference.
Technical Support
There are no serviceable parts in this device. Refer all
service to a qualified service repair facility. For technical support and repair assistance in the U.S., call Cavitron
CareTM at 1-800-989-8826 or 717-767-8502 Monday
through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. (Eastern Time). For
other areas,
contact your local DENTSPLY representative.
Supplies & Replacement Parts
The Ultrasonic Scaler operates by converting ordinary AC
house current into high frequency current. The ultrasonic
system consists of two parts: an insert and the electronic
system. The system incorporates a closed loop for automatic
tuning (operating frequency is adjusted to be at resonance for
each insert). The Cavitron BOBCAT Pro Ultrasonic Scaler
produces 25,000 microscopically small strokes per second
at the insert’s working tip. This combined with acoustic
effects of the coolant water, produces a synergistic action
that literally "powers away" the heaviest calculus deposits
while providing operator and patient comfort.
To order supplies or replacement parts in the U.S., contact
your local DENTSPLY Distributor or call 1-800-989-8826
or 717-767-8502 Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to 5:00
P.M. (Eastern Time). For other areas, contact your local
DENTSPLY representative.
Caution: U.S. Federal Law restricts this device to sale by or
on the order of a Dentist.

Section 1: Indications
1.1 Ultrasonic Procedures
• All general supra and subgingival scaling applications.
• Periodontal debridement for all types of periodontal diseases.
• Endodontic procedures.
Section 2: Contraindications and Warnings
2.1 Contraindications
2.2 Warnings
• Ultrasonic Scalers should not be used for restorative
dental procedures involving the condensation of
amalgam.
• For optimum performance use only inserts
manufactured by DENTSPLY Professional.
• Persons fitted with cardiac pacemakers, defibrillators
and other active implanted medical devices, have been
cautioned that some types of electronic equipment might
interfere with the operation of the device. Although no
instance of interference has ever been reported to
DENTSPLY, we recommend that the handpiece and
cables be kept at least 6 to 9 inches (15 to 23 cm) away
from any device and their leads during use.
• There are a variety of pacemakers and other medically
implanted devices on the market. Clinicians should
contact the device manufacturer or the patient’s
physician for detailed information about the device.
Section 3: Precautions
3.1 Precautions for All Systems
3.2 Precautions for Ultrasonic Prophylaxis
Procedures
• Do not place the ultrasonic scaler on or next to a
radiator or other heat source. Excessive heat may
damage the ultrasonic scaler’s electronics. Place the
ultrasonic scaler where air is free to circulate on all sides
and beneath it. Do not cover vents on rear panel.
• The ultrasonic scaler is portable, but must be handled
with care when moving.
• Equipment flushing and dental water supply system
maintenance are strongly recommended. See Section 9:
System Care.
• Close the water shut-off valve in the dental water
supply system every night before leaving the office.
• The use of an in-line water filter is recommended.
• Never operate the ultrasonic scaler without water
flowing through the handpiece.
• Grounding reliability can only be achieved when the
equipment is connected to an equivalent receptacle
marked “Hospital Only” or “Hospital Grade”.
• Like a toothbrush, ultrasonic inserts "wear" with use.
Inserts with just 2 mm of wear lose about 50% of their
scaling efficiency. In general it is recommended that
ultrasonic inserts be discarded and replaced after 90
days, under normal use, to maintain optimal efficiency
and avoid breakage. A DENTSPLY Insert Efficiency
Indicator is enclosed for your use.
• If excessive wear is noted, or the insert has been
bent, reshaped or otherwise damaged, discard the
insert immediately.
• Ultrasonic insert tips that have been bent, damaged,
or reshaped are susceptible to in-use breakage and should
be discarded and replaced immediately.
• Retract the lips, cheeks and tongue to prevent contact
with the insert tip whenever it is placed in the
patient’s mouth.

Section 4: Infection Control
4.1 Infection Control Information Reference Booklet
For your convenience, an Infection Control Information
reference booklet has been included with your Cavitron
BOBCAT Pro Ultrasonic Scaler. Additional booklets can
be obtained by calling Customer Service at 1-800-989-8826
or 1-717-767-8502 Monday through Friday, 8:00 A.M. to
5:00 P.M. (Eastern Time). For other areas, contact your local
DENTSPLY
representative.
devices, the combination of water and ultrasonic
vibration from your Cavitron BOBCAT Pro Ultrasonic
Scaler will create aerosols. With proper technique,
much of the aerosol dispersion can be effectively
controlled and minimized. Please carefully follow the
procedural guidelines in this manual regarding the use
of your ultrasonic scaler.
• A 0.12% chlorhexidine pre-rinse (ORISTM) is
recommended prior to starting any dental procedure.
4.2 General Infection Control Recommendations
• As with all dental procedures, the use of universal
precautions (i.e., wearing a face mask, eyewear or face
shield, gloves and protective gown) is recommended.
• For maximal operator and patient safety, carefully
follow the Infection Control Information procedures
detailed in the booklet accompanying your ultrasonic
scaler.
• As with high-speed handpieces and other dental
4.3 Water Supply Recommendations
It is highly recommended that all dental water supply systems
conform to applicable CDC (Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention) and ADA (American Dental Association)
standards, and that all recommendations be followed in terms
of flushing, chemical flushing, and general infection control
procedures. See Sections 5.2 and 9.

5.1 General Information
5.3 Electrical Requirements
If the installation of your Cavitron BOBCAT Pro Ultrasonic
Scaler is performed by someone other than trained
DENTSPLY Distributor personnel or DENTSPLY Service
Technicians, care should be taken to observe the following
requirements and recommendations.
Refer to Section 11: Specifications.
5.2 Water Line Requirements
• The System’s water supply line is factory installed.
Do not disconnect it from the ultrasonic scaler.
• Incoming water supply line pressure to the ultrasonic
scaler must be 25 psi (172 kPa) minimum to 60 psi
(414 kPa) maximum. If your dental water system’s
supply line pressure is above 60 psi, install a water
pressure regulator on the water supply line to your
Cavitron BOBCAT Pro Ultrasonic Scaler.
• A manual shut-off valve on the dental water system
supply line should be used so that the water can be
completely shut-off when the office is unoccupied.
• A filter in the dental water system supply line is
recommended so that any particles in the water supply
will be trapped before reaching the ultrasonic scaler.
• After the above installations are completed on the

Section 8: Techniques for Use
8.1 Patient Positioning
• For optimal access to both the upper and lower arches,
the backrest of the chair should be adjusted to a 45˚
degree angle. This assures patient comfort and
clinician visibility.
• Hold the empty handpiece in an upright position over a
sink or drain. Activate the Foot Control until water exits.
• Lubricate the rubber o-ring on the insert with water
before placing it into the handpiece. Fully seat insert
with a gentle push-twist motion. DO NOT FORCE.
• Activate the System. Hold the handpiece over a sink or
drain. (Check spray to verify fluid is reaching the working
end of the insert tip). Adjust the Water Control knob
to ensure adequate flow. Greater flow settings provide
cooler irrigant.
• In general, it is suggested that a "feather-light touch" be
used for ultrasonic scaling. The motion of the activated
tip and acoustic effects of the water, in most cases, is
adequate to remove even the most tenacious calculus.
• Periodically check the Cavitron Ultrasonic Insert for
wear with the Cavitron Insert Efficiency Indicator.
• The use of a saliva ejector or High Volume Evacuator
(HVE) is recommended during all procedures.
• Set the ultrasonic scaler’s Power Control knob to the
lowest effective power setting for the application and the
selected insert.
8.3 Patient Comfort Considerations
• Have the patient turn his/her head to the right or left.
Also position chin up or down depending upon the
quadrant and surface being treated. Evacuate irrigant
using either a saliva ejector or High Volume Evacuator
(HVE).
Reasons for sensitivity
• Incorrect tip placement. The point should never be
directed toward tooth root surfaces.
• Not keeping tip in motion on tooth. Do not allow the
insert to remain in a static position on any one area of
the tooth. Change the insert’s path of motion.
• Applying excessive pressure. Use a very light grasp
and pressure, with a soft tissue fulcrum whenever
possible, especially on exposed cementum.
• If sensitivity persists, decrease power setting and/or
move from the sensitive tooth to another and then return.
8.2 Performing Ultrasonic Scaling Procedures
• Note: Refer to the Infection Control Information
Booklet supplied with your system for general
procedures to be followed at the beginning of each day
and between patients.
• The edges of Cavitron® Ultrasonic Inserts are intentionally rounded so there is little danger of tissue laceration with proper ultrasonic scaling technique. Whenever
the insert tip is placed in the patient’s mouth, the lips,
cheek and tongue should be retracted to prevent
accidental contact with the activated tip.
