Dental Cleaning are Crucial

It’s important to attend regular dental cleanings as part of an effective oral hygiene regimen. Brushing and flossing go a long way to remove food particles and acids from teeth to prevent dental decay and ward off gum disease. But, brushing and flossing alone isn’t enough. Professional dental cleanings are necessary to remove the hardened calculus deposits that accumulate on teeth over time. Left alone, these deposits can wreak havoc on teeth and gums by causing dental decay and disease. They may even contribute to the development of whole-body health conditions, including heart disease, stroke, osteoporosis, dementia, low-birth weight, and more.

Cavitron Comes Through!

Traditionally, a metal tool is used to scrape away calculus from teeth and under the gum line. This method can be uncomfortable for some patients, as well as time consuming. Cavitron ultrasonic dental cleaning uses sound waves to break up calculus deposits and water to whisk the particles away, resulting in fast, comfortable, more efficient dental cleanings.

Take Charge of Your Smile

Ultrasonic dental cleanings can be a good choice for patients who want a healthy smile but who don’t like the sounds and sensations of traditional cleanings. Patients with pacemakers may not be good candidates for ultrasonic cleaning, due to the use of sound waves, so let Dr. Cheloha know if you have a pacemaker implanted.

Call Monument Smiles today to schedule a visit with Dr. Cheloha and find out if ultrasonic dental cleaning is the right choice for you.
