X-Rays Cleaning & Sealants

Digital Radiography

Digital radiography reduces your radiation exposure by 90% compared to the traditional films! Digital X-Rays allow you to get necessary care without unnecessary radiation. X-Rays play an invaluable role in the diagnosis of dental problems. However, many people are concerned about the exposure to x-ray radiation. Computerized Digital Radiography (CDR) eliminates these worries because it requires less radiation than conventional film x-rays.


Ultrasonic Scaling

There are many benefits of Ultrasonic Scaling including:

  • Increased efficiency of calculus removal
  • Less need for hand scaling of stubborn deposits
  • More comfortable access to the root surfaces, thanks to the small tip.
Ultrasonic scaling removes calculus and reduces the number of harmful bacteria below the gum line. It is an important tool in the prevention and treatment of periodontal disease.


Sealants

The term “dental sealant” or “tooth sealant” refers to a plastic resin that is bonded to the chewing surface of tooth as a means of helping to prevent tooth decay (“cavities”) Although sealants are often performed on children, they are beneficial to a patient of any age that would like to prevent tooth decay. These are checked and maintained at your regular six month check-up appointments.
