Ultrasonic Dental Cleanings

Ultrasonic dental cleanings are a modern, efficient way to maintain your oral health. At Keene Family Dentistry, we strive to provide the most comfortable and effective treatments for our patients, and ultrasonic cleanings are a key part of this commitment.

When you visit our office for a routine cleaning, our dentists and hygienists will use advanced ultrasonic scalers to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth. Plaque, a soft, sticky film of bacteria, can harden into tartar if not removed within 24 hours. Tartar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease, and it cannot be removed by regular brushing and flossing. This is where our ultrasonic scalers come in.

Ultrasonic scalers use high-frequency vibrations to break down plaque and tartar, making the cleaning process quicker and more comfortable compared to traditional methods. The device works by emitting ultrasonic vibrations through a small tip that gently touches your teeth. You may feel a slight vibration during the process, but it is generally painless and does not require any numbing anesthetic.

Our team will use the ultrasonic scaler during your regular cleaning appointments. This advanced tool allows us to clean your teeth more thoroughly and efficiently, helping to keep your smile healthy and bright. By removing the built-up plaque and tartar, we can prevent cavities, gum disease and other dental issues, ensuring that your oral health remains in top condition.

In addition to improving your experience, ultrasonic scalers also make the cleaning process easier for our hygienists. The tool’s efficiency reduces the time you spend in the chair and enhances the overall quality of the cleaning.

We recommend that you visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. Regular cleanings are essential for maintaining good oral health and catching any potential issues early.
