Dental hygiene is more than professional teeth cleaning that will restore your beautiful smile. By means of a perfect removal of plaque and tartar and an instruction on the proper technique of teeth cleaning and choice of suitable oral hygiene aids, and with your collaboration, the dental hygienist will help you keep your teeth and gums healthy and nice and prolong the lifetime of your fillings and prostheses. However, the future of your teeth and gums will always be in your hands; in your thorough cleaning!
What happens when you visit a dental hygienist
The dental hygienist performs a complex examination to evaluate the state of your gums. She cleans your teeth by an ultrasonic scaler, removes discolouration by a special paste or an air flow machine (a sandblasting machine for the removal of plaque, discolouration and teeth polishing even in hard-to-reach areas). Then she shows you and instructs you on how to take care of your teeth properly and recommends dental aids suitable specifically for you.
Why is it necessary to repeat the visit
Cleaning one’s teeth properly is not an easy task. Due to insufficient oral hygiene, tartar forms very quickly. That is why it may be necessary to visit your dental hygienist several times to keep your teeth and gums in an ideal state.
