Thank you docklock, Penguin and Tracy E for your quick replies.

It seems sonic scaling is o.k. I would ask my team but cannot get through to them on phone , always busy. I think maybe I will stick to hand scaling by my dentist as he is left handed and apparantly its awkward for him with the lead.

NHS so busy all the time its difficult to speak to anyone let alone ask for a letter to be sent but appreciate your replies. Its all so new at the moment and I am finding it difficult to understand all the terminology. You all seem so clued up as to what is happening and how it all works with your pacemakers. Best wishes  Y

If you contact Medtronic by email or via their website they may have a factsheet for dentists that they can send you. Your dentist may accept this as it is directly from the manufacturer and it explains which equipment can be used.

You know you're wired when...

You have a maintenance schedule just like your car.

Just because you have a device doesn't mean you are damaged goods and can't do anything worthwhile and have to lie down and die. In fact, you're better and stronger. You're bionic!
