The Cavitron is an ultrasonic scaler, which helps to gently break up calcified plaque deposits (tartar) and flush away plaque and bacteria from under the gum line. This great piece of technology uses a stack of magnets to vibrate a rounded metal tip faster than the speed of sound. This vibration disrupts bacterial colonies to clean the teeth. Then, the flow of water not only cools the tip (that fast vibration can generate a lot of heat without water!), but it also flushes away those bacteria and any other debris from below the gums and between the teeth.

Ultrasonic scalers are beneficial for many reasons. First of all, because they do not use a sharp edge, they are gentler on the gums as well as the enamel of the teeth. In this way, they generally provide a more comfortable cleaning. The instrument also introduces oxygen below the gums, which helps to kill the bacteria which live there and improve the health of the tissue. The Cavitron also makes for a much faster cleaning, which is something we can all appreciate.

    Our family has been going to Giebenhain Dental for the past 25 years. The entire staff at Giebenhain Dental is extremely friendly and professional and they sure make you feel at home. Dr. Giebenhain is very knowledgeable and detail oriented. The office is very nice and comfortable and the view from the dental chair is very peaceful. I’ve had the opportunity of having both hygienists clean my teeth and they understand my sensitivity in a couple of areas and are very careful not to make me flinch. If you are looking for a dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Giebenhain and his wonderful staff.

    My husband and I have been long-time patients and continue to love Giebenhain Dental even though we could go somewhere closer to our house. We love it because of the family atmosphere! Everyone is very professional, but also very personable and friendly. You always feel welcome from the minute you walk through the door.

    Giebenhain Dental is a great choice for working families. Accommodating office hours, helpful appointment reminders and efficient care are just some of the benefits of dental care at Giebenhain Dental. The staff is friendly and professional and I love the "up north" feel of the office reception area. I highly recommend Giebenhain Dental.

    Our family of five has been going to Giebenhain Dental for nearly 15 years -- Dr. John is the only dentist our girls have ever had. We enjoy the personal yet professional atmosphere during every one of our visits. The entire staff makes our family feel welcome and it's clear they truly care about our health and happiness. We always leave with a smile -- a cleaner, healthier smile! We wouldn't go anywhere else!
