Common Causes of Ultrasonic Scaling:

  • Build-up of plaque and tartar on the teeth
  • Stains from tobacco, coffee, or certain foods
  • Poor oral hygiene practices
  • Genetic predisposition to dental issues
  • Dental conditions like periodontitis or gingivitis

How Does Ultrasonic Scaling work

Ultrasonic scaling involves using a hand-held device that emits ultrasonic vibrations. These vibrations create shock waves, breaking down and dislodging plaque, tartar, and stains from the teeth. Water irrigation helps flush away the debris, leaving the teeth and gums clean and refreshed.


  • Removal of plaque and tartar deposits
  • Stain removal from the tooth surfaces
  • Gum pocket disinfection
  • Removal of bacterial biofilm
  • Smoothing of tooth surfaces for easier cleaning

During the course of having laser hair removal sessions, we will only allow you to shave or trim your hair. This is because waxing and plucking will pull the hair out of the root meaning the laser will be less effective at your next session.
