This technology allows us to use a hand-piece that sprays small sand-like, particles at the decayed area. It works great when removing stains and small areas of decay – minimizing tooth structure removal.
Many people also appreciate this high-tech treatment because often no anesthesia is required and there is no drill sound.
In the past, the only way to remove tarter from above and below the gum line was by scraping with a hand instrument. With the Cavitron Ultrasonic Cleaner, our hygienists are able to gently, and comfortably remove tarter with high frequency sound waves. The Cavitron Ultrasonic cleaner is a safe, effective and painless alternative to traditional cleaning methods. The Cavitron vibrates at the speed of sound so you hardly feel any movement. This makes even a deep cleaning a more pleasant experience.
