Ultrasonic Scaler

Our ultrasonic scaling technology at Lake Country Dental is designed to ensure the comfort of dental patients and professionals.  The main action of power scalers is mechanical; the high vibrational energy crushes and removes calculus. Other actions include: creating shockwaves that disrupt bacterial cells, or using turbulence to disrupt biofims, and irrigation — the therapeutic washing and flushing of the periodontal pocket and root surface with cooling water. Both power and hand scaling techniques require an experienced clinician with good tactile sensitivity (sense of touch) to remove deposits effectively and to promote healing.
