We are committed to providing our patients with the highest standard of dental care using the latest advancements in technology. That’s why we are proud to offer ultrasonic cleaning as part of our comprehensive dental services.

What is Ultrasonic Cleaning?

Ultrasonic cleaning is a state-of-the-art dental hygiene procedure that utilizes ultrasonic vibrations to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from the teeth and gums. This advanced technique offers several benefits over traditional scaling and polishing methods, including improved efficiency, precision, and patient comfort.

How Does It Work?

During an ultrasonic cleaning procedure, our skilled dental hygienists use a handheld device called an ultrasonic scaler to deliver high-frequency vibrations to the teeth and gum tissues. These vibrations create tiny bubbles in the water or cleaning solution, which implode upon contact with the tooth surface, effectively dislodging and removing stubborn plaque and tartar deposits.

Benefits of Ultrasonic Cleaning

  • Efficiency: Ultrasonic cleaning is highly efficient at removing plaque and tartar buildup, even in hard-to-reach areas such as below the gumline and between teeth.
  • Gentleness: Unlike traditional scaling methods, which rely on manual scraping, ultrasonic cleaning is gentle on the teeth and gums, minimizing discomfort and reducing the risk of tissue damage.
  • Precision: The ultrasonic scaler allows for precise control over the cleaning process, ensuring thorough removal of plaque and tartar while minimizing disruption to healthy tooth structure.
  • Reduced Treatment Time: Due to its efficiency and effectiveness, ultrasonic cleaning typically requires less time to complete compared to traditional scaling and polishing methods, allowing for a quicker and more streamlined dental hygiene appointment.
