Alpharetta GA Dentist That Uses Numbing Nasal Spray

Part of choosing a good dentist is making sure the practice has adopted the latest dental technology. Today’s cutting-edge dental equipment is not reserved for restorative or cosmetic procedures. There is advanced technology that can enhance your preventative dental care as well.

Ultrasonic cleaning or ultrasonic scaling can improve your professional dental cleaning experience in more ways than one. It is a tool that works by sending ultrasonic vibrations along your gum line and teeth, which blasts away dental tartar, or calculus. Tartar, or hardened plaque, cannot be removed by your routine brushing and flossing at home. The ultrasonic scaler produces sound waves that actually break apart these stubborn calculus deposits. For a more streamlined process, this tool also allows water to flow from the tip so that debris is washed away wash and the device does not overheat.

This thorough cleaning along the gum line, also known as scaling and root planing, was done by handheld metal instruments in the past. It is not uncommon for a dentist to use both traditional methods and ultrasonic technology to give your teeth and gums the best cleaning possible.

The top three benefits to choosing a dentist who offers ultrasonic cleaning includes the following:

  • More Comfortable: There is no metal scraping involved or other abrasive sounds and feelings
  • More Efficient: Ultrasonic cleaning requires less time than other scaling methods
  • More Effective: This advanced dental system is highly effective for cleaning plaque underneath the gum line, which can both prevent and treat gum disease. It can also reduce the appearance of tooth stains.

Taking advantage of the latest in dental technology means a more comfortable and rewarding experience, whether you are just in for a routine cleaning or a more complex dental procedure. Patients with gum disease or problems with excess plaque buildup should ask their dentist about ultrasonic scaling.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
