Flush out bacteria caught below the gum line.
Our office is equipped with ultrasonic tooth cleaning technology to accompany scaling and root planing. This equipment is basically a scaler with a special tip that vibrates at a high rate and flushes out bacteria below the gum with water. As the tip glides over the tooth surface it is very effective at removing hard buildup and calcium deposits. It will smooth out bumps and divots in the surface to prevent buildup.
