Ultrasonic scalers are tools used by dental professionals when cleaning your teeth– and one would think that the power of cleaning lies in some chemical or something, but apparently the presence of tiny bubbles is telling of the impact of the cleaning!
Cavitation is the formation of bubbles, and according to an article published in Medical News Today, it is shown “that removal of plaque biofilm is increased when cavitation is increased.”
The end goal? Advancing the technology of the ultrasonic to the point of an effective and (nearly) pain-free cleaning!
