Ultrasonic cleaning instruments enhance your cleanings by sending vibrations and a flow of water to gently wash away debris from your teeth. Not only does this get plaque off of your teeth, but it significantly removes the arduous task of the traditional scraping it off tooth by tooth. Your teeth become clean rapidly and normally will not require any anesthesia.
People who suffer from substantial tooth decay, as well as patients who have periodontal disease (plaque that surrounds the gums and bone tissue), benefit most from the use of this method of preventing tooth loss or further decay. The procedure is also beneficial in root planning and in removing stains from the tooth’s surface.
