If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by your teeth cleaning experience Dentistry by Design. We’re proud to use the ultrasonic teeth cleaning device, Piezo, in Pacific Palisades. This equipment provides deep teeth cleaning with little pain or discomfort. Bi-annual professional teeth cleaning is essential for good oral health and reduces the risk of several serious diseases. With the Piezo, you receive superior cleaning results.
What you should know about deep teeth cleaning
The Piezo device helps remove plaque and tartar with the aid of high-frequency sound waves. Once the waves reach your teeth, they break up the hard deposits of plaque and tartar, and the attached water spray washes the deposits away. Our dental hygienists then polish your teeth for an exceptionally clean and bright smile. The manual process is often uncomfortable for patients when hygienists scrape their teeth. The Piezo tool allows them to complete the job more thoroughly and efficiently.
What is plaque and tartar?
To appreciate the effectiveness of ultrasonic teeth cleaning, it’s helpful to understand plaque and tartar.
Plaque is a thin, sticky film on your teeth. Bacteria is present in plaque that eats away at tooth enamel, which can cause cavities and can lead to inflammation and gum disease if not taken care of properly.
Tartar is what develops when plaque remains on your teeth for a long time. It hardens and can cause a variety of periodontal problems. Because of this, you need to have plaque and tartar removed by a dentist during a deep cleaning procedure. Without this intervention, you run a higher risk of requiring tooth extraction or other major dental procedures in the future.
