Dental hygiene, or, When 2 minutes a day is not enough
Standard, daily tooth brushing is very important to prevent various dental diseases; often, however, we are unable (or incapable) of providing our teeth with the care they truly deserve. Unsuitable brushing or a poorly chosen tootbrush or toothpaste can even be harmful to our teeth.
Dental hygiene is a highly effective solution for a beautiful and healthy smile, which is increasingly recommended as prevention as well as part of the treatment by all responsible dentists. At Perfect Smile® Clinic we offer professional dental hygiene as part of the orthodontic treatment with fixed braces, or as a single procedure which you too can undergo!
3 x why dental hygiene
1. No more dental caries
Through regular care we are able to reduce the risk of dental caries to a minimum. Thanks to professional instruments, a dental hygienist is able to clean your teeth in places which a regular toothbrush will never reach.
Dental hygiene easily helps prevent various gum diseases, reduces gum bleeding and, in extreme cases, it can prevent tooth loss as a result of advanced periodontosis.
Using special techniques, we will remove all dental plaque as well as sedentary dental tartar, for which regular cleaning is not enough. Our dental hygienist will get rid of unwanted dental pigmentation and of unpleasant halitosis (bad breath).
What happens during a treatment?
A full Perfect Smile® dental hygiene treatment consists of two visits of a total 2.5 hours. After each procedure it is necessary to observe the so-called white diet for at least 3 hours, during which the cleansed tooth surface should not come into contact with any teeth-colouring substance (most commonly red wine, curry spice, coffee, smoking). This is the only way to ensure maximum effect.
1st visit – 1.5 hours of care
At your initial visit to the dental hygienist's office, you will first be examined for your so-called special index, which determines the health of your gums, as well as the overall state of oral hygiene. Should the hygienist recognize any of the possible diseases, s/he will first explain to you the causes behind it, and then suggest further proceedings.
During the actual treatment, dental plaque and tartar (which usually prevents gum renewal) are removed first. The time needed to remove the tartar varies: sometimes multiple visits are needed. Finally, the hygienist will clean and polish your teeth thoroughly.
2nd and following visits – 1 hour of care
During your next visits we will check up on the current state of hygiene and clean the remaining tartar, polish your teeth and, if needed, sand them using our AIRFLOW® appliance. This procedure is only possible for patients who do not suffer from gingivitis.
Your following visits will consist of checking your dental hygiene and evaluating problems that may have emerged since your last visit.
AIRFLOW® – whiter teeth within minutes
Dental hygiene also includes special sanding using the AIRFLOW® appliance, which instantly removes unwanted pigmentation from the tooth surface, and restores natural whiteness. Pigment stains are not only aesthetically disturbing: they also provide fertile ground for the sedimentation of tartar. They appear especially due to high consumption of red wine, curry, coffee and, of course, as a result of smoking. Regular cleaning is usually only partly successful in preventing repeating occurences of these pigmentations.
AIRFLOW® is highly effective in removing even the tiniest pigmentations using sodium bicarbonate or glycin, which is applied on the teeth in the form of microgranulated powder using a stream of water and air. AIRFLOW®-based sanding neutralizes the oral cavity's acid environment, which prevents the formation of bacteria and the accompanying dental caries. Unlike chemical teeth whitening, AIRFLOW® sanding is completely natural, it does not burden the oral cavity, and at the same time it is a much more economical way of achieving a beautiful smile.
