The Cavitron® Ultrasonic Scaler is a dental hygiene tool that uses high frequency sound waves to disinfect and clean teeth. The state of the art instrument has proven to be a very successful tool in removing tartar from both above and below the gumline. Instead of scaling the teeth with bulky hand scalers, the Cavitron® Ultrasonic Scaler uses oscillating sound waves to gently vibrate the tartar away from your teeth. It is so gentle that it can even be used for deep cleaning and gum therapy without the need for anesthesia. It is a safe effective and painless alternative to traditional cleaning methods.
