What is the Piezoelectric scaler?
The Piezoelectric scaler is one of our advanced dental tools. We use the Piezoelectric scaler for scaling and root planing, which are deep cleaning methods recommended for treating periodontal disease (gum disease). The Piezoelectric scaler uses a pulsing voltage applied to ceramic crystals, which fly and move the tip in a reciprocating pattern. This system causes the tissues of the mouth to heat, and we use water to cool them. The tip of the Piezoelectric scaler has special edges that are exceptionally good for use in removing tartar (hardened plaque, also known as dental calculus). This specialized tip also helps our talented dentists and dental team to remove deposits of bacteria, plaque, and tartar at a faster rate than other devices and instruments. Dr. Chen and Dr. Chen are pleased to utilize the Piezoelectric scaler in Glendale, California, to provide you with high-quality dental care that is more efficient and comfortable.
