What’s the best thing about your regular checkup and cleaning? Walking out of our office with your mouth feeling squeaky clean! It feels that way because our dental hygienists really love what they do, and we use dental scalers that are state-of-the-art for removing plaque above and below the gum line and preventing gingivitis.
We have two different types of scalers that we can use. One is a sonic scaler, a hand-held tool that releases jets of water that whisk away debris and light plaque. If you have more severe, hardened plaque, we can use a Cavitron or Piezo ultrasonic scaler. It works the same as our sonic scaler, but the water pulses are much faster to break down hard calculus deposits on your teeth. Using ultrasonic scalers also helps us treat any gum disease you may have.
