The Luxury of Ultrasonics at Dr. John M. Cherry, Jr., DMD
What Are Ultrasonics?
Ultrasonics are instruments that use sonic energy to clean debris, remove posts, and apicoectomies. These instruments have smaller tips that allow us to clean away tartar from around and between teeth and beneath the gumline with greater precision, giving patients better results.
How Do Ultrasonics Work?
Just as “ultraviolet” means electromagnetic waves that are beyond the range of human vision, “ultrasonic” means sound waves that have a frequency too high for us to hear. Our ultrasonic tools vibrate at these high frequencies, which makes them highly effective at performing critical tasks in the confined spaces around a tooth.
