They may also be used supragingivally to remove light calculus deposits
Periodontal pockets (deeper than 2mm) should be cleaned with hand instruments (A curette) rather than power scalers.
How to use

The toe is placed against the tooth surface with the flat face at 90 degrees so that the sharp edge contacts.
Repeat overlapping stokes are used.
