Cleaning Tools

Some of our in office tools that help assist in dental cleaning.

Cavitron

A cavitron is a dental tool that uses high frequency sound waves to clean teeth. These high frequency sound waves vibrate tartar and dirt off your teeth. Water then flushes away the bacteria and plaque that build up on your teeth.

Diode Laser

The Diode Laser is a great tool for shaping the gums and removing bacteria from the periodontal pocket, the space between the gums and tooth. Dental cleanings performed with diode laser therapy significantly improve the success of healing the gums.

Inflammation, bleeding, pocket depths, and the amount of bacteria are all greatly reduced as opposed to just scaling and polishing the teeth alone. Best of all, laser therapy has been shown to improve circulation and increase the components that speed healing, referred to as Biostimulation. With any oral procedure or surgery, Biostimulation reduces pain and swelling and can help your mouth recover more quickly.

Diagnodent

The Diagnodent is the latest in cavity detection. The Diagnodent can detect even the smallest cavities that even the trained eye of your dentist can miss, even while using magnification loupes!

The earlier the cavity can be detected, the sooner it can be removed and chances are, there will be minor, if any, pain involved.

Micro Ultrasonic Scaling

We provide our patients with the luxury of Ultrasonic Scaling. It is more comfortable for patients and allows for the scaling process to be completed faster than having to 'scrape' tooth surfaces like the conventional scaling process.

Distilled Water

We use distilled water rather than tap water to help safeguard against germs and contamination.

Sterilization

We use a powerful autoclave to sterilize equipment and dental instruments. This helps to safeguard against germs and contamination.
