Prophylaxis

You have tartar or plaque. You don’t quite know why there is so much fuss about it – after all, it doesn’t hurt, it doesn’t bother you, the teeth stick together better … Until you can see it when you smile, why touch it? Some more holes will surely start to form… In addition, the dentist recommends that you clean your teeth in the office once every six months … What is the use of this toothbrush that you brush your teeth with every day (are you sure?)?

Tartar is a calcified biofilm, composed of living bacteria that have fused together to form a hard coating on the teeth, using the minerals found in saliva.

Unfortunately, tartar is an easy way to cause gingivitis, which turns into periodontitis (of the tissues surrounding the tooth, including the bones). The substances that produce in a state of chronic inflammation cause the bones to shrink, cause the gums to loosen and bleed, which end up loosening and eventually loss of teeth. In addition, tartar creates an ideal environment for the development of caries between the teeth – the most difficult to detect and heal. That is why we direct our patients to regular tooth cleaning at the dental hygienist’s office.

During hygienisation, not only will all the spaces around the teeth be cleaned, but also polished, which will slow down the deposition of new tartar and protect the tooth with a fluoride (or hydroxyapatite) agent. The hygienist will select the right tools (electric toothbrush heads, interdental brushes, rinses) that are best for your daily oral hygiene, based on your individual problems. It will also be an opportunity to ask any questions about how to properly care for your teeth.
