Why should you do your professional dental hygiene
Prevention is better than treating.
This sentence can be applied to any aspect of the human health, for oral health as well. That is why, good hygiene is important. With proper hygiene and regular dental check – ups, we can prevent carries. Toothbrushing and flossing is not enough in many cases, that is why controls every six months at dental office, are crucial. Depending on patients needs, we perform scaling and / or sand blasting with fluoridation.
During hygiene, a dentist or a dental hygienist cleans the teeth surfaces, especially those, which patient skips.
The procedures are:
A procedure which removes tartar from teeth by the use of ultrasounds.
Cleaning of stains and plaque from the teeth, which discolor because of dark drinks (coffee or tea), foods or smoking.
Proper dental hygiene and oral health
In case of rare dental check – ups and professional hygiene, calculus and plague accumulates, what makes teeth look unaesthetic and dark. Moreover tartar puts the pressure on gums, generates periodontal problems – loss of the bone and exposition of the roots. Neglected hygiene is a trigger for the gingival inflammation, what results in wobbling teeth and even their loss.
Poor oral hygiene also leads to carries and cavities, which should be treated with a filling, or in sever cases, root canal treatment is needed.
