Ultrasonics are instruments that use sonic energy to clean debris, remove posts, and prepare roots for root canals and apicoectomies. These instruments have smaller tips that allow us to complete root canal treatment and microsurgery with greater precision, giving patients better results.
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.
Our use of ultrasonic instruments at The McHenry Dentist is just one of the many ways we ensure that our patients get the best possible endodontic treatment. Give us a call at (815) 363-0103 or send us an email if you have any questions about the equipment we use or if you would like to set up an appointment.
