Professional tooth cleaning prevents tooth decay, plaque and periodontitis by removing bacterial plaque, discoloration, plaque or tartar. This prevents inflammation of the mouth and helps to keep teeth and gums healthy.
Regular prophylaxis twice a year is the best way to clean teeth thoroughly, even in places that cannot be reached when brushing with a toothbrush.
In principle, this preventive dental hygiene measure applies to everyone. The earlier oral hygiene is carried out, the lower are later dental problems. The more often, the better.
The prophylaxis has other positive side effects, such as avoiding bad breath and bleeding gums, prolonging the life of white teeth, preventing gingivitis, promoting the prolongation of the life of dental fillings and restorations. The fight against bad breath, caused by a high number of bacteria and plaque in the oral cavity in interdental spaces or gum pockets, is also the goal of professional tooth cleaning.
The process of oral hygiene includes the most precise cleaning of tooth surfaces, interdental spaces and gum pockets, followed by polishing to prevent the formation of new plaque. Before this, the dentist examines the oral cavity to determine the dental situation and then uses a powder-water jet to remove plaque and discolouration. Then dental floss and the ultrasound device are used for further cleaning. The treatment is not painful and takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the condition of the teeth. After the dental hygiene treatment, the patient should wait 1 hour to eat and drink.
To ensure that the effect of professional cleaning lasts as long as possible, patients should also use dental floss and interdental brushes when cleaning their own teeth. A healthy diet and the avoidance of smoking and coffee consumption contribute significantly to your well-kept appearance with beautiful, healthy teeth.
