Ultrasonic treatment is an effective way to easily remove plaque, tartar, and calculus from the gumline. It can reach farther than a traditional hand scraper to clear harmful deposits. When using ultrasonic instruments, there is no physical pressure on the tooth, so patients with periodontal disease and/or loose teeth can receive an ultrasonic cleaning without worrying about loosing your teeth. Ultrasonic treatment has also been shown to reduce the likelihood of gingivitis and other harmful gum diseases. It is an effective and efficient way to maintain good oral health.
