Ultrasonic Scalers

Dentist in Livonia, MI

Ultrasonic scalers are instruments that destroy bacteria (also known as biofilm) and tartar (or calculus) from above and below the gumline by using sound waves, vibration and water. Biofilm and calculus cause inflammation and bleeding which lead to periodontal disease, so removal is crucial to your oral health as well as your overall health.  Dr. Todaro recently invested in the best ultrasonic scalers available.  She upgraded our ultrasonic scalers because Dr. Terri, Dr. Cindy and our hygienists care about your health and giving you an excellent hygiene experience.  These new ultrasonics are able to be manually adjusted by each hygienist to make your appointment enjoyable.  The tips that we use were designed by a periodontist to reach into the deepest periodontal pockets while still being comfortable and acheiving optimal results.  Using ultrasonics is not only more thorough than hand scaling, but is faster overall and less polishing is needed because it also removes stain, and that protects your enamel.
