Pursuing the Perfect Smile


When it comes to oral care, it’s not enough to simply brush and floss. Every so often, the tartar that sticks to teeth over time needs to be removed with an effective instrument. For that, many dentists rely on the Cavitron ultrasonic cleaner – a tool that has consistently proven itself effective in removing tartar from above and below the gum line. This gives the patient a thorough, all-around cleaning resulting in a healthier mouth. Patients love that there is no longer any need for heavy and uncomfortable metal hand scalers!

The Cavitron ultrasonic cleaner works by utilizing oscillating sound waves that gently vibrate the tartar off teeth, without pain or discomfort. In fact, it’s so gentle that dentists can use it to administer deep cleaning and gum therapy several times with no anesthetic required.

Patients can rest assured that having their teeth scaled with the Cavitron ultrasonic unit is a safe, effective, pain-free option used as a complement to regular six-month cleanings at the dentist. Because the Cavitron vibrates at the speed of sound, you don’t even feel the movement!

Scaling is a type of periodontal therapy, which essentially involves the removal of dental plaque that can cause gum disease. Thanks to an excellent track record of quality and performance, Cavitron continues to be the dental industry leader, with products that enhance the patient experience.
