Oral hygiene

Oral hygiene is an integral part of modern dentistry. A hygienist or a doctor will remove tooth plague and dental calculus that causes inflammation of the gums, parodontitis and tooth decay (caries). They will also remove the pigmentation that often appears on your teeth.

The hygienist and the doctor will examine you and propose a plan of your individual treatment. They will carefully remove the dental plaque and the dental calculus. Your teeth will be perfectly clean with the help of Airflow. They will have no pigmentation and will be absolutely smooth. The airflow with dental soda removes the remains of food and pigments that are left on the teeth from tea, red wine or coffee.

Dental hygiene is appropriate for all age groups and is not paid by the insurance company. Even when the patient has no teeth problems, it is recommended to visit the hygienist’s office at least once or twice a year.

Oral hygiene includes:

  • Tartar removal (ultrasound, hand instruments)
  • Elimination of pigmentation (depuration or Airflow)
  • Treatment of sensitive tooth necks, if it is necessary
  • Teeth fluoridation
  • Tips on oral hygiene, developing manual skills, choosing the right hygiene products with the possibility of purchasing them at the clinic

How to brush your teeth properly?

You have to do this at least twice a day: in the morning and in the evening. You should brush your teeth before eating. This is due to the fact that a pH in dental plaque drops sharply after eating. Dental plaque has a expressed acidic environment and demineralizes the enamel. The proper toothbrush should be soft, have many bristles and its basis should be flat (we recommend Curaprox). We recommend Oral-B toothpaste. You should put a brush on your teeth besides gums and move in circular movements towards molars. You clean teeth both from a grinding surface and from an internal lingual surface. Attention! You do not press on the brush, but clean softly. Once a day we clean the interdental spaces with interdental brushes. We also use dental floss where the usual brush does not get. It is also necessary to stick to the time limit provided for brushing teeth, as improper performance often leads to reduced efficiency.

Is oral hygiene painful?

This manipulation is painless. Still, it is not very pleasant. It usually depends on the extent and size of tartar. A hygienist can anesthetize the gums with a special anesthesia.

How long does oral hygiene last?

It usually depends on the condition of the teeth and other tissues in the mouth. However, it usually lasts 45-65 minutes.

Do you explain the basics of tooth brushing?

Of course. We’ll figure out how to brush and floss correctly at the first check-up. We’ll also pick up some hygiene items.

Does hygiene make teeth white or only whitening can help?

The purpose of oral hygiene is to remove plaque and stains from the teeth. If the pigment is in enamel, then there is a necessity to perform professional or homemade tooth whitening.
