Ultrasonics

The Luxury of Ultrasonics at Hummelgard & Dolenz Family Dentistry

What Are Ultrasonics?

Ultrasonics are instruments that use sonic energy to remove plaque and tartar. These instruments have smaller tips that allow Dr. Hummelgard and Dr. Dolenz to complete treatment 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 inside and around a tooth.
