In recent years, cosmetic dental procedures have experienced exponential growth, and people seek invasive alternatives to traditional dental work to achieve the look they are after. One treatment that hit the market by storm is clear plastic aligners. As a result of wearing the aligners for up to 22 hours of the day, it's essential to clean them properly to maintain the discreet aesthetic look and preserve excellent oral health.

Dental Pod offers a precise and effortless solution - ultrasonic cleaning for all dental appliances.

Over time, oral appliances can harbour bacteria and plaque, which contributes to bad breath and dental hygiene, and gives the appearance of a discoloured and cloudy aligner. There are many ways to clean oral appliances, such as brushing them with a toothbrush or rinsing them in a solution; however, none compare to ultrasonic waves' advanced, clinical-grade cleaning.

Zima Dental has engineered the Dental Pod to use 42,000 Hz high-frequency sound waves. The sound waves create a vibration producing millions of nano-scale bubbles; this action, called 'cavitation', occurs on average 4,000 times per second, eliminating harmful bacteria and plaque build-up, even in the smallest crevices, with no abrasion.

Ultrasound is a cleaning method used and trusted in dental practices for decades; Dental Pod allows users to utilise this technology from the comfort of their own home in just five minutes.
