What are Cavitron ultrasonic scalers?

Cavitron ultrasonic scalers are dynamic cleaning tools that can keep you comfortable while delivering efficient results. Plaque builds up on your teeth every time you eat and drink, and if the the plaque is not removed quickly enough, it can harden into tartar (calculus), which must be removed by a dental professional before it damages the teeth further. At Peak Dental Care, we use the Cavitron ultrasonic scaler to remove hardened plaque and tartar from the surfaces of your teeth. The ultrasonic scaler is powerful but should not cause you any pain or discomfort; no numbing anesthetic is needed for the ultrasonic scaling process.

Our dentist uses the Cavitron ultrasonic scaler in Centennial, Colorado, for routine cleanings and periodontal maintenance. Plaque and tartar need to be removed in order to prevent decay and gum disease from marring your smile. In addition to making your cleaning quicker and easier, the scaler can also make your dental experience more comfortable and relaxing.
