Ultrasonic Cleaning San Rafael, CA

Rise away infection and debris from healthy gums.

Ultrasonic CleaningIn addition to hand scaling and root planing, the experienced dentists at North Bay Dental can use a non-surgical technology to tackle bacteria build-up and gum disease: ultrasonic cleaning. This is a gentle, dental deep cleaning that loosens hard plaque and calcium deposits around your teeth and gums. It’s also an affordable periodontal disease treatment for improving your overall oral health.

To insure good oral health our office offers ultrasonic tooth cleaning technology to accompany dental oral hygiene cleaning, scaling and root debridement. This equipment is basically a tooth scaler with a special tip that provides water vibrated at a high rate to flush out bacteria below the gum line. It rinses away infection and debris from healthy gums. The tip glides over the tooth surface and is much more effective at removing hard buildup and calcium deposits than hand scaling alone can accomplish. It smoothes out bumps and divots on the tooth surface which create an environment that prevents calculus/tartar buildup.
