Cardiac pacemakers are vital devices for people with heart problems as they help maintain a healthy heart rhythm.


Dental Equipment That Can Interfere with Pacemaker

Some dental equipment can affect the activity of a cardiac pacemaker.

The use of electrosurgical equipment may cause interference with the normal operation of pacemakers. Therefore, it is suggested to avoid its use.
