Ultrasonic Cleaning

Rinse Away Dead Tissue and Debris From Healthy Gums

To insure good oral health our office offers ultrasonic tooth cleaning technology to accompany dental oral hygiene cleaning, scaling and root planing (debridement). This equipment is basically a tooth scaler with a special tip that provides water vibrated at a high rate to flush out bacteria below the gum line. It rinses away dead tissue and debris from healthy gums. The tip glides over the tooth surface and is much more effective at removing hard buildup and calcium deposits than hand scaling alone can accomplish. It smoothes out bumps and divots on the tooth surface which create an environment that prevents calculus/tartar buildup.
