ORAL HYGIENE

PURE PLEASURE

ORAL HYGIENE

Preventive dentistry is a field of dentistry that deals with the prevention of oral health problems.

 

Preventive measures primarily include regular dental examinations, as well as other procedures, including cosmetic dentistry, which are provided by our Dental Hygiene Office.

 

Preventive dentistry is a rapidly developing field. The Dental Hygiene Office was established at Face-Clinic several years ago in order to prevent oral health problems.

 

Remember, if you take good care of your teeth
when they are healthy, you may enjoy them all your life.

SCALING

Scaling can be a preventive measure or a stand-alone treatment. It involves removing the hard dental deposit (tartar) from the teeth.

 

Tartar removal is performed with an ultrasonic scaler. The device’s tip touches the surface of dental deposit and vibrates at a very high frequency, blasting tartar away.

 

Ultrasonic scaling should be applied once or twice a year. Upon dental examination, the dentist will tell you whether you need this procedure.

 

Regular and correctly performed tartar removal procedures prevent gum recession and exposed tooth necks, and, even more importantly, significantly reduce the risk of periodontitis and teeth loss.

SANDBLASTING

Sandblasting is among the simplest basic dental procedures. It helps to quickly restore the original whiteness and brightness of your teeth.

 

In this procedure, the enamel surface is cleaned of the deposits caused by tea, coffee, cigarettes or any other staining substances. Discoloration that has built up over months or years cannot be removed by the patient single-handedly by applying popular oral hygiene products.

 

The frequency of this procedure depends on the patient’s lifestyle and oral hygiene. As a standard, it should be performed once a year.

 

In this procedure, the enamel surface is cleaned with a fine powder applied at high pressure.

 

After sandblasting, it is recommended to apply fluoride varnish in order to strengthen the enamel.

DENTAL SEALANTS

FOR CHILDREN

This procedure involves filling anatomical pits and fissures in teeth with a special coating (sealant). For several years this has been a standard preventive procedure applied to premolars and molars.

 

Due to their structure, pits and fissures on the chewing surfaces of the teeth are quite difficult to clean from food residue. Even with a very good oral hygiene, it may be impossible to remove all the plaque because pits and fissures are at some points narrower than toothbrush bristles.

 

To ensure the effectiveness of the sealing procedure, it should be performed within six months after the eruption of permanent teeth. The teeth to be sealed should be healthy, free from any carious lesions.

DENTAL VARNISH

In this procedure, a fluoride varnish is applied to the teeth in order to strengthen tooth enamel and increase its resistance to caries. This is one of the most effective ways of preventing the development of caries in both children and adults.

 

The varnish is applied directly to enamel surface and it hardens rapidly, firmly adhering to the teeth. It remains in contact with the enamel long enough to gradually release fluoride ions which are then incorporated into the surface of teeth.

 

The frequency of this procedure depends on the patient’s proneness to caries. On average, it should be performed every six months in adults and 3-4 times a year in children.

 

Fluoride varnish is particularly recommended in the following cases:

 

- high risk of caries in children

- incipient caries (carious spots)

- wearing orthodontic appliances

- exposed tooth necks

- mouth dryness caused by certain medications or diseases

- radiation therapy for head or neck.
