In the management of periodontal disease, one of the most powerful technologies available is the
dental ultrasonic scaler
. Like the rest of dentistry, the technology continues to improve. Ultrasonic scalers are used to remove calculus (tartar) rapidly from the tooth surface. The levage feature of the ultrasonic scaler helps to remove and clean out any debri from under the gumline helping to ensure the most healing of the gum tissue.
