Oral hygiene

Today fortunately we live in health conscious society and oral health and hygiene is as important. The most important daily oral hygiene routine is using different kinds of toothpastes at home and this is our own personal responsibility however in some cases this is not enough, in many cases professional oral hygiene is recommended- on average a dentist would recommend it 1-4times a year. Regular professional oral hygiene provides permanent protection against tooth decay and periodontitis. These diseases are caused by bacteria, which "settle" on the surface of the tooth and gingival sulcus. They convert sugar and other carbohydrates into acids and damage tooth’s structure. Long-term effects are widely known – tooth cavities and gum diseases which, in advanced stages, can become the reason of tooth loss. Professional oral hygiene is performed using a combination of Air-flow system and ultrasonic scaler.

Air-flow perfectly removes soft and hard dental plaque from the tooth surface, fissures, pits and interdental spaces. Dental hygiene is performed using special powder in combination with water and compressed air flow which is safe both for tooth surface and gums. It effectively removes dental plaque which accumulated because of smoking, black tea, coffee and other staining foods consumption. Therefore teeth appear brighter after the procedure.

Ultrasound is used to remove supragingival and subgingival calculus, as well as inflammatory granulations, microorganisms and their toxins from gingival pockets. Such professional dental hygiene is essential to maintain healthy periodontal tissues and/or to stop disease progression. Gingival pockets are sterilized by laser.

Professional oral hygiene is carried out by trained specialist – dental hygienist. His/her task is to take care of the gums and surrounding tissues health, to teach patients correct individual oral hygiene, to familiarize in general with oral hygiene and its importance.
