What is an ultrasonic dental cleaning?
When you visit us at T.F. Chen DDS, we may recommend an ultrasonic dental cleaning in Glendale, California. An ultrasonic dental cleaning is a dental treatment during which we remove tartar (calculus) at a faster, more efficient rate without any uncomfortable metal scraping. Dr. Chen and Dr. Chen, our experienced dentists, use a tool called an ultrasonic scaler, which sends ultrasonic vibrations through your teeth to blast tartar away from the teeth. The ultrasonic scaler does this with no sounds or physical vibrations, so your visit will still be enjoyable and comfortable. An ultrasonic dental cleaning is faster than a regular scaling and root planing treatment because it removes all of the tartar from the teeth at the same time, rather than requiring our dentists to clean each tooth one by one.

Do I need an ultrasonic dental cleaning?
We may recommend an ultrasonic dental cleaning to prevent the progression of periodontal disease (gum disease) by removing plaque and tartar from the teeth. An ultrasonic dental cleaning is also powerful enough to reduce the appearance of stains on your teeth, giving you a whiter smile!
