We also use ultrasonic cleaning at Iocca Family Dentistry because we feel it is an excellent way to clean teeth and keep them healthy. Rather than manually scaling your teeth, we use a device that vibrates at an extremely high frequency for effective and delicate cleaning of your teeth. The pulsating movements cause plaque and tartar to fall off your teeth and then we rinse them away with a water tip directly attached to the scaler.
Our ultrasonic cleaning device also helps to eliminate tartar and a hard, calcified type of tartar called calculus. Before ultrasonic cleaning became mainstream, dentists had to scrape plaque and tartar manually. This sometimes resulted in damage to the patient’s tooth enamel.
Ultrasonic cleaning is the most effective way to treat gum disease
If you already have gum disease, ultrasonic cleaning reaches plaque and calculus deposits beneath the gum line in a way that hand scraping cannot achieve. We also prefer this method because it doesn’t put any physical pressure on the teeth. This is important for people who have gingivitis because they’re already prone to loosened teeth and don’t need to worry about having a tooth accidentally dislodged at the dentist.
Patients who have put off dental cleanings will be happy to know that they’re now easy and painless.
