Do not underestimate dental hygiene, it can save your teeth!

The most pressing problem across the entire world are the consequences of gingivitis - inflammation of the gums. Almost all Czech adults who do not regularly visit a dental hygienist suffer from this condition. Gingivitis is caused by poor oral hygiene. Its symptoms are inconspicuous at first and include, for example, increased bleeding of the gums during oral hygiene.

However, untreated gingivitis may progress to a more serious phase in which the gums and bones teeth are set into gradually recede. This condition is known as periodontitis. Periodontitis may cause loosening of the teeth, the creation of gaps or even free rotation of a tooth around is axis. In this stage, a tooth is just a single step away from falling out completely.

Three basic professional teeth cleaning methods are used at our clinic

1. Removal of tartar with ultrasound

Tartar is created from dental plaque. If not removed in time, it can damage the adjacent gum. This leads to gums that are sensitive, swollen and painful to the touch.


2. Air-flow

A very gentle method for cleaning the surface of teeth using water, air and microparticles of soda or calcium. This method can temporarily rid your teeth of discolouration and plaque.


3. Fluoridation

This method prevents the loss of calcium from tooth enamel, medically known as demineralisation. This is the most common cause for sensitivity of tooth necks to external stimuli, in particular temperature changes and the consumption of hot or cold substances. The supplied fluorides strengthen the enamel and protect it from bacteria and acids. Fluoridation with minerals is also used for the effective prevention of cavities in children.
