What is an ultrasonic scaler?

Ultrasonic scalers are advanced tools used for cleaning your mouth. They enable our dentist to remove plaque and calculus quickly and effectively, and they are especially useful in providing cleanings for patients with periodontal disease.

What are the benefits to using an ultrasonic scaler?

Ultrasonic scalers help our dentist to clean your mouth and provide treatments more effectively and completely. Other benefits of this technology include:

  • A more comfortable treatment experience
  • A more effective removal of tartar and plaque
  • The spray tip on the device, which allows us to clean debris and administer water or antibacterial agents as we work
  • The removal of surface stains for a whiter shine
  • A faster overall treatment
  • A treatment that is gentle on your gums and tooth structure

How does an ultrasonic scaler work?

Ultrasonic scalers work using vibration. This high vibrational energy knocks plaque and tartar off your teeth quickly, effectively and most importantly, without the scraping of metal tools against your teeth. The tips of ultrasonic scalers are also very small and can easily access areas where a manual tool cannot effectively clean.
