Visiting the dentist is an important practice to maintain your oral health. The best way to prevent complications, and avoid serious treatments, is to detect the problem in time and trust a qualified professional. A professional dental cleaning at the dentist’s office is one of the most effective methods of saving a beautiful smile.
A common misconception is that dental hygiene brushing is only necessary for people who smoke or who are excessive coffee drinkers. That’s not exactly true. Oral hygiene is an important step in achieving a healthy smile. Tartar and plaque buildup are considered common, even with proper, thorough daily oral hygiene. Using gentle toothpastes and brushes as well as flossing, is not a guarantee that your teeth are completely clean.
The oral cavity is one of your body’s main protective barriers to health. What begins as an oral disease may progress to more serious health problems if not properly cared for. Typically, patients go to the dentist when they are already in unbearable pain. But this is not right. Regular consultations help to make an early diagnosis, saving patients from discomfort and wasting money.
Plaque (a film of bacteria that forms on the teeth) is the main cause of periodontal (gum) disease. Bacteria that are not removed cause the formation of periodontal “pockets”, areas of separation between the teeth and the surrounding gums. The plaque solidifies and forms a hard deposit – tartar.
Removing plaque and tartar deposits is the goal of regular dental cleaning by a professional dental hygienist. The removal of hard dental plaque is called “scaling.” The procedure is carried out using hand scalers or a new technology: ultrasonic scalers.
Professional tooth cleaning is intended only to prevent tartar and tooth loss, and it is absolutely safe. Of course, it is necessary to know the limits of everything. Este-line Clinic specialists recommend visiting a dentist-hygienist at least once every six months. We use only certified equipment, which guarantees that the teeth cleaning will be painless.
It is not possible to be 100% sure which cleaning method is the best. It is only a specialist, after taking a look at the condition of your teeth and gums, who can tell you which cleaning is best for you. However, one thing that ultrasound instruments succeed at is the removal of deposits from deep pockets. The tips of these tools are small, allowing them to reach areas where hand tools can’t reach at all.
Moreover, the coolant sprayed by ultrasonic scalers aids in the removal of accumulated plaque and tartar. At the same time, Air Flow injects oxygen bubbles into these deeper pockets, which disrupts the oxygen-hating bacteria.
We recommend preventive dental check-ups at least a few times a year to identify the most common oral problems. You should develop good and healthy habits. It is time to forget your fear of dentists. At Este-line Clinic, we employ qualified professionals with a wealth of experience, knowledge, and dental practice. Be sure that they will do all necessary to protect the health of your gums and teeth.
Most people have a stereotype that visiting the dentist is painful. Yes, the oral cavity is quite sensitive, and dental procedures are sometimes not the most pleasant thing to do. But the benefits of regular visits to the dentist far exceed the fear.
Those are the four main reasons why professional dental cleaning is important:
Patients can have X-rays taken at the dentist’s office during dental cleanings to check the condition of the teeth, roots and jaw for problems that cannot be seen during an oral exam. X-rays show the position of the teeth and can help determine if braces are needed, as well as show if there are any infections, cysts or tumors.
Plaque is removed during tooth brushing. If this plaque is left behind, it may harden even more and lead to tooth decay. Plaque buildup can also cause gum disease, allowing bacteria to infect the gums around and below the gum line.
Bad breath is often caused by dental problems or plaque that builds up in your teeth.
Untreated gum infections and tooth decay can lead to tooth loss, but the problems don’t end there. Oral diseases that allow bacteria to multiply can contribute to other diseases.
Gum disease potentially increases the risk of heart disease because bacteria in the gums cause the arteries to narrow. Endocarditis, among them, is an infection that affects the inner lining of the heart. It is usually caused by bacteria that spread with blood flow from another part of the body, such as the gums.
There is no one better than a qualified specialist who can detect any health problem at an early stage and give individualized advice. In addition, early detection will allow the dentist to perform simple and less invasive treatments, which will improve the quality of care for the patient in the dentist’s office.
Whatever your age, it is important to have regular dental cleanings at your family dentist, in addition to brushing and flossing.
Professional oral hygiene takes from 60 to 120 minutes. Este-line offers the best prices for professional teeth cleaning.
Oral care after a professional cleaning is the same as after whitening. Within seven days after a complex dental cleaning, it is necessary to:
Brush your teeth with a tooth-strengthening toothpaste, a soft-bristled toothbrush, and a mouthwash lotion.
Basic tartar removal at the dentist’s office will keep your smile white and healthy without the need for more aggressive treatments.
