A professional dental cleaning procedure is understood as one of the stages of oral hygiene. It should be noted that the toothbrush, as well as other special devices used at home, are unfortunately not enough to thoroughly clean the interdental spaces, as well as the subgingival area from plaque. Regular visits to the dental clinic can help prevent the development of tooth decay and other diseases.

Preparing for the procedure

Initially, a mandatory examination of the oral cavity is carried out using modern diagnostic equipment. It should be said that a medical specialist determines the condition of the teeth and gums, and also measures the depth of periodontal pockets using computer probes. If necessary, a medical specialist can also show the patient the presence of problem areas using a special video camera.

Removal of tartar and plaque

Tartar is understood as hard plaque, which can be removed with an ultrasonic scaler. Note that our medical clinic uses modern equipment that cannot damage the enamel, and also does not cause discomfort. If necessary, at this stage of professional cleaning, vector therapy is performed, which makes it possible to remove subgingival plaque, as well as to prevent a disease such as periodontitis. To ensure effective cleaning of interdental spaces, as well as the surface of the tooth from plaque, a method such as Air-Flow is used. Note that a directed stream of a special aerosol, which has the smallest particles of calcium bicarbonate in the composition, allows you to clean the enamel as carefully as possible. The procedure is completely painless.

At the final stage, the surface of each of the teeth is polished with a fine abrasive paste and then covered with fluoride varnish. This solution allows you to reduce the level of sensitivity of the tooth enamel, as well as provide protection against caries.

How often should you perform a professional dental cleaning procedure

In order to prevent the occurrence of various dental diseases, professional teeth cleaning should be performed every six months. In the period between visits to the dentist, it is imperative to follow the recommendations of the dentist regarding oral hygiene at home. Before you start using floss, an electric toothbrush or an irrigator, it is important to consult with a dental clinic specialist.
