Severe ocd. I was washing my cum stained underwear with hot shower and saw hot shower steam or water vapour. Is that water vapour clean? Thanks

What is the difference between ultrasonic dental cleaner and dental scaling during professional dental cleaning ? Which one is better ?
Cavitation / scaling: The ultrasonic cleaner uses a high frequency vibrating tip, irrigated with water, to break apart encrusted calculus and kill bacterial cells by bursting their cell walls with the kinetic energy. Scaling removes the same calculus by scraping it off, and planning the root surface to a glass-like finish. What is better for you depends on accumulations and periodontal status.
