CAVITRON® Ultrasonic Teeth Cleaning
The Cavitron ultrasonic cleaner is a state-of-the-art instrument for removing tartar from both above and below the gum line. Instead of cleaning your teeth with bulky and sharp metal hand tools, the Cavitron has a blunt tip and uses oscillating sound waves to gently vibrate the tartar away from your teeth. The Cavitron unit is so gentle that it can even be used to administer a deep cleaning many times without the need for anesthetic. It vibrates at the speed of sound, you will hardly feel the procedure at all. No more of that metal scraping feeling and sound!
