Professional dental hygiene is at present an
important element in the comprehensive treatment of diseases of the
periodontal tissue and is an inseparable part of treatment for all
dental diseases. Oral hygiene is the professional cleaning of teeth
through the removal of dental tartar, including tartar deposits above
and below the gum line, and smoothing the surface of dental roots.
the mechanism of deposits forming on teeth deserves special
The process begins with the depositing of organic matter on the
surface of the tooth, which forms a coating that bacteria and their
products are attached to. The result is the formation of a solid base
for tooth deposits.
The creation of a gingival covering creates the conditions for the
formation of gingival deposits, which support inflammatory processes
in the tissues surrounding the teeth.
This dental plaque is calcified over time and transformed into
tartar. Tartar, in turn, serves as a “refuge” for bacteria; it
protects them from mechanical and chemical influences, thus creating
favourable conditions for their reproduction and growth.
processes eventually lead to periodontitis, an inflammatory disease
of the tooth’s fixation system. Periodontitis causes destructive
changes in bone tissue and can lead to subsequent tooth loss. Many
contemporary scientists have shown that the main cause of
periodontitis is dental plaque, which contains a large number of
oral hygiene should be done every 6 months. In the case of
orthodontic treatment, implants, prostheses or periodontitis, dental
hygiene once every 3 months is recommended.
oral hygiene runs in several stages.
is removed using ultrasonic instruments and specially adapted
scalers. This process does not harm the tooth enamel and is
pain-free. When ultrasonic cleaning and the removal of tartar under
the gum line is necessary, DENTALCENTER may also use an operating
microscope for better visualization and improved services.
teeth are polished using special nozzles (brushes, rubber heads) and
different polishing pastes, so that the surface of the tooth is
smooth and no new deposits are formed on it for as long as possible.
At the end of the procedure, we smear the teeth with fluoride to
strengthen the enamel and reduce their sensitivity.
DENTALCENTER, we devote special attention to teaching hygiene, where
we select individual oral hygiene products to use at home and teach
the proper teeth-cleaning technique.
