Professional teeth cleaning is a necessary stage of oral cavity hygiene. Toothbrushes and other special tools used at home, unfortunately, aren`t enough to thoroughly clean interdental space and subgingival area from the bacterial plaque. Regular visits to the hygienist can prevent the development of caries, periodontitis and other gum diseases.
Preparation for professional teeth cleaning
First, a mandatory inspection of the oral cavity is carried out using modern diagnostic equipment. In such a way the doctor determines the condition of teeth and gums and performs the measurement of the depth of periodontal recess with the help of computer probes. If needed a doctor can show the patient problem areas using a special camera.
Bacterial plaque and calculus removing
Calculus is a solid accretion for the removal of which an ultrasound scaler is used. In Avanto clinics, we use modern equipment that doesn’t damage enamel or cause discomfort. If necessary, at this stage of professional cleaning, Vector-therapy is also carried out to remove subgingival plaque and prevent periodontitis.
Air-Flow method is used for the effective cleaning of the interdental space and tooth surface from pigment and plaque. A directed jet of a special aerosol with the smallest particles of calcium bicarbonate in its composition gently cleans the enamel. The procedure is completely painless.
At the final stage, the surface of each tooth is polished with an abrasive paste and then coated with a fluorine varnish. This helps to reduce the sensitivity of the enamel and protects against caries.
How often do you need to do a professional teeth cleaning?
In order to prevent various dental diseases, professional teeth cleaning is performed each 4-6 months. In the period between visits to the dentist, be sure to follow the doctor’s recommendations regarding oral hygiene at home and use those tools and treatment he recommended you. Before starting to use floss, electrical toothbrush or irrigators be sure to consult your dentist first.
