Big words make it appear as a scary procedure, but ultrasonic oral prophylaxis is a routine procedure of cleaning the mouth, specifically your teeth, for prevention of diseases and we recommend our patients to get it done biannually.
Needless to explain, Plaque is formed naturally in your mouth. But if not removed from your teeth and around the gums within 48 hrs, it hardens into calculus and continues to attract more plaque which cannot be cleaned by brushing or flossing and requires special dental tools and procedures. Left untreated or uncleaned, this calculus can cause cavities and gum infections.
Ultrasonic oral prophylaxis, is a procedure in which an ultrasonic device known as ultrasonic scalers, helps in the process of deep cleaning. This process of deep cleaning is known as scaling and root planing also called oral prophylaxis. Hence, the name. The ultrasonic scaler comes with tips of different shapes and sizes for better approach. They are specially designed to loosen deposits and stains and detach them from tooth surface by using ultrasonic vibrations in conjunction with water mist.
It is a simple procedure that can keep your teeth healthy and disease free. We at Al Sawai encourage you to get your routine cleaning and check ups done on time to avoid unnecessary hassle later. You can book an appointment or visit us directly at our hospital for a consult.
