What is Ultrasonic Scaling?
Ultrasonic scaling is one of the most effective procedures for treating periodontal disease.
An ultrasonic scaler consists of a wand with a small scaling tip that produces a soft ultrasonic vibration. The small quick vibrations, in combination with a gentle water flow, thoroughly remove tartar, while decreasing the number of distractive bacteria below the gum line.
Removing tartar and bacteria are crucial to controlling periodontal disease.
