During your cleaning, your dental hygienist will use a Sonic Scaler. This powerful, yet gentle device uses state-of-the-art ultrasonic wave technology to clean teeth, instead of all those metal tools from the past. Do you know why your teeth feel so amazing after a cleaning with us? Because when you’ve completed your dental hygiene cleaning, we’ve already:
- Removed all of the plaque from in and around all of your teeth. This is the sticky substance that likes to sit on teeth causing decay, bad breath, and issues with your gums.
- Removed calculus and tartar. This is simply plaque that’s hardened over time.
- Polished your teeth to ensure they’re stain-free and smooth.
Dental hygiene is an extremely important part of keeping your teeth and gums healthy enough to last a lifetime. It’s also one of the best ways to keep your smile free from bacteria-causing debris.
