What are Ultrasonic Cleanings?

The old way of scraping the teeth clean definitely has its drawbacks. Not only can this method damage your teeth, but it’s often more uncomfortable for patients who already have anxiety over visiting the office. We offer high-quality ultrasonic cleaning that uses a vibrating scaler to remove hardened plaque and stains. This device helps to clear away tartar in no time, resulting in cleaner and brighter teeth.

Why are Ultrasonic Cleanings needed?

Ultrasonic cleanings are necessary to keep your teeth clean and healthy. When plaque is able to harden on the teeth, it forms into a chalky substance known as tartar or calculus. When this occurs, it’s nearly impossible to brush the substance away on your own. An ultrasonic cleaning can whisk away this tartar to reveal a brighter and healthier smile underneath.

Who's a candidate for Ultrasonic Cleanings?

Every patient coming into our office for a cleaning is a good candidate for ultrasonic cleaning. Many of our patients find that ultrasonic cleaning is easier and more comfortable while they sit and have it done. Others find that their teeth look and feel cleaner. You should be having a cleaning done every six months. It’s never too early to get your children in for their first cleaning, and it’s never too late to take control of your oral health. 

What happens during an Ultrasonic Cleaning?

You will come into our office and be seated comfortably by the hygienist. The hygienist begins by examining your teeth and making note of any problems or changes. The ultrasonic scaler is then used to quickly clean the teeth and remove tartar and heavy build-up. The process is quicker and easier when compared to traditionally scraping the teeth. Once the cleaning is finished, your teeth will be polished to a high shine and flossed carefully to remove inter-dental plaque. Ultrasonic cleanings are easier, quicker and less frightening than traditional cleanings.

This was my first time seeing Dr. Galligan - was super appreciative that she took care of the issue with my filling on the same day it was discovered even though it was the end of the day. I know she didn't have to do that. Super happy with this dentist.
