Family relaxing after Ultrasonic Teeth Cleaning in Puyallup WA

Our dental lifestyle plans include cleanings every six months. Have you ever wondered why? In-depth dental cleanings are one of the simplest preventive measures to add confidence and sparkle to your smile.

This is where our professionals step in: we perform a simple, ultrasonic scaling procedure using small instruments to remove the hard plaque trapped beneath the gums.

Ultrasonic scalers act primarily to remove plaque and stains from tooth surfaces in areas that normal brushing and flossing can’t reach. A substantial buildup of tartar creates an environment ripe for gum disease, and cleaning these areas can act to prevent gingivitis, tooth decay, and loss of enamel from teeth.

These routine cleanings are key to your continued oral health. If you are due for your dental appointment in Puyallup, WA, call 253.200.5427 today. The team at Smith & Wetterhus Dentistry looks forward to serving again you soon.
