Dental hygiene is an integral part of modern dentistry. Regular dental hygiene will prevent gingivitis, periodontitis, tooth decay and other diseases.
How does dental hygiene work?
Dental hygiene is always performed by a trained dental hygienist.
The visit proceeds as follows:
• Evaluation of the condition of the gums and the level of hygiene, the amount of plaque, stone, and pigmentation;
• Communication of the hygiene plan;
• Removal of stone and coatings using the most modern ultrasound and hand tools;
• Air-flow or sandblasting, which is used to clean pigmentation (from coffee, tea and cigarettes), as well as teeth polishing and plaque removal;
• Fluoride gel application;
• Practicing of proper cleaning, selection of a suitable size of interdental brushes, consultation of recommended aids for oral care.
Part of dental hygiene is also nutritional counseling in the health of the oral cavity. The dental hygienist will be happy to answer all your questions. They work closely with the dentist, actively participating in improving the patient's oral health. Without good dental hygiene, the dentist cannot perform certain procedures and treatments.
Among other things, the dental hygienist performs teeth whitening, bonding of dental jewelry, treatment of sensitive teeth, deep scaling or deep removal of tartar (possibly also under local anesthesia).
Who is dental hygiene suitable for?
Dental hygiene is suitable for everyone, regardless of age and condition of the teeth.
