When the plaque film that collects on teeth hardens over time, it becomes tartar or calculus. This calcified material cannot be removed with a toothbrush, and if left on the teeth, it can extend under the gum line, infecting it and causing gum disease. When a dentist or dental hygienist cleans teeth, they will scale away tartar from their surface. At our practice, we use ultrasonic scalers as the latest equipment in the dental field for removing calculus.
This scaler uses ultrasonic vibrations, or sound waves, which crush and remove tartar from teeth. Our device can clean under the gum line with this tool, and it uses water to wash away debris and keep the area cool. When calculus is removed from teeth, your gums have a chance to heal from gum disease. Our dentist can improve your gum and tooth health when you visit him for state-of-the-art ultrasonic dental equipment.
