PERSONAL ORAL HYGIENE
The benefits of professional oral hygiene
Professional oral hygiene is one of the most important procedures in preventative care, helping to keep the whole mouth healthy and free of diseases.
Toxins, bacteria and acids negatively affect the teeth and gums, resulting in tooth decay, inflammation, bad breath and bleeding gums. A visit to the hygienist will prevent these diseases from taking hold.
The treatment is pain-free and is performed in the clinic by your hygienist, who is specialising in the maintenance of oral health.
It is recommended to visit your hygienist regularly to prevent possible complications. The preventative measures taken in time can help avoid significant dental treatment costs.
Using special instruments and an ultrasonic scaler, the accumulated tar and plaque are safely removed. Pearls (Calcium Carbonate) and smeliasrove are effective for eliminating tobacco, tea, coffee and wine stains.

Fluoride is an essential micronutrient that plays a role in the prevention of tooth decay. During fluoride application process, the lacquer applied to the tooth forms a film that lasts for about 12 hours – allowing the fluorine ions to absorb into the enamel thus making it stronger.
Dental fluoridation is recommended for:
- Patients who frequently develop caries
- Patients suffering from teeth sensitivity
- Children with active caries or sensitive teeth
- Children developing permanent teeth. The enamel of a new permanent tooth is still relatively immature and porous – while fluoride is an essential part of the development of strong and healthy teeth.
The procedure is simple and pain free :
Teeth are cleaned with a professional paste to remove plaque that inhibits fluoride from absorbing deep into the tooth enamel. A fluoride varnish is then applied, allowing a few minutes for it to be absorbed into the teeth. Following the application, the mouth should be rinsed. Food is to be avoided for about 1-2 hours, while dairy products are not to be consumed throughout the entire day.
For lasting effect, this procedure should be repeated periodically every 3-4 months!
