Oh, that feeling of freshly cleaned teeth! You can’t stop smiling, looking at yourself in the rearview mirror as you drive home, and running your tongue over those smooth, polished pearly whites. But dental cleanings aren’t just designed to make your teeth look and feel great. They are also crucial for the protection of your teeth, gums, and body against harmful bacteria. You see, no matter how well you brush and floss, bacteria can build up in the form of plaque and tartar, especially in areas that are hard to reach with a toothbrush and around the base of the gums. It takes a professional touch, experience, and tools to remove it all. If bacterial films are left on the teeth and gums, it can lead to periodontal disease, tooth decay, and loss, as well as staining and bad breath.
We use the advanced technology of ultrasonic scaling to gently but efficiently remove all plaque and tartar. Patients find it much more comfortable than traditional planing and scaling, and we love the fact that the sound waves are so effective at removing every last bit of biofilm.
If you want a smile that is so much more than clean, call us about ultrasonic hygiene appointments now.
