Dental hygiene in our office :
Dental hygiene mainly deals with the prevention and conservative treatment of the most common diseases of oral tissues in adults and children.
These include gingivitis, periodontitis and tooth decay. Dental hygiene also deals with dental erosion, tooth sensitivity, bad breath, grinding of teeth (bruxism, bruxmania), aesthetic aspects of teeth (whitening, polishing of fillings), etc.
A dental hygienist instructs clients to take proper and effective care in order to prevent problems and maintain functional teeth throughout their lives.
For long-term positive treatment results, the client should follow the recommendations of a dental hygienist.
The most common problems that dental hygiene deals with:
The main symptom of gum inflammation is bleeding. Furthermore swelling occurs, the gums may or may not be sensitive, which is the main reason why many people do not solve this problem at all and let it go to the point where we are talking about periodontitis.
Gingivitis is caused by the presence of dental plaque, which is not sufficiently removed by brushing teeth at home.
„Stone“ is formed from unremoved dental plaque, which hardens due to minerals in saliva.
It contains a large number of bacteria that cause damage to the gums and bone.
Periodontal disease of all the tissues that surround the teeth.
In periodontitis, these tissues (including bone) are damaged, which can lead to tooth loss (loss of teeth).
Only 5% of periodontal diseases are genetic (inherited).
The remaining 95% of periodontal disease cases are due to poor oral hygiene and can be stopped by improving it.
- dental caries
Dental caries results from long-term exposure of the tooth to acids produced by plaque bacteria. If you brush your teeth thoroughly at least once and use interdental brushes and dental floss, tooth decay has no chance to appear.
Good hygiene habits will save you a lot of time, pain and money.
Odor from the mouth can have many causes, but it is usually a local problem - the cause is in the oral cavity such as untreated tooth decay, periodontitis, non-cleaning of the interdental spaces, plaque on the tongue. It may also be manifestations of general illness, gastrointestinal disorders or inflammation in the airway.
The basis for suppressing halitosis is good oral hygiene and healthy lifestyle.
- teeth whitening
The colour of the teeth is given mainly by the thickness and mineralization of the enamel. The thinner the enamel, the more yellowish the teeth. The colour of the teeth may also be changed by pigments from smoking, coffee, tea, etc. External tooth pigmentation can be removed by polishing or airpolishing.
The pigments inside the tooth structure, they can only be removed by bleaching.
We offer so-called home teeth whitening, which consists in the application of trays containing a bleaching gel with a low peroxide content, which will gradually whiten your teeth. The change is gradual, gentle and painless. Bleaching does not damage dental tissue. The peroxide breaks up the pigment molecules and thus causes color change.
The application time is 2 hours every day for 7-14 days depending on the shade you want to achieve. Prior to bleaching, the client must have the teeth completely treated and should have an excellent level of oral hygiene for the best and long-term result.
Initial visit to dental hygiene
During the first visit, it is necessary to perform an overall examination of the oral cavity and to take a medical history (in the form of a questionnaire), which contains all important information about diseases, allergies or medication of the client.
On the basis of the examination the treatment is suggested and the causes of the problem are explained. The treatment is very gentle to minimize any discomfort. However, if the client requires anesthesia of the gums, it is possible to apply both surface and local anesthesia. After treatment, dental hygiene aids are recommended.
The initial visit should be followed by a follow-up visit to assess the condition of the treated tissues and the client's oral hygiene habits.
Dental hygiene in children
Since childhood, children must be encouraged to take proper care of the oral cavity. If they know how to brush their teeth and why, they will avoid unpleasant dental experiences in the future.
We use special disclosing agent to show the kids where their teeth are clean and where the plaque remains. The plaque is then removed by polishing and the teeth are coated with a calcium-containing care cream. In children with fixed braces, plaque is removed by airpolishing with the finest powder. The treatment is not unpleasant. Children can watch the whole procedure in the mirror.
Dental hygiene in clients with fixed braces
If you have a fixed braces, it´s definitely not an obstacle for dental hygiene treatment.
It is necessary for people with braces to avoid problems with gums and dental caries. Poor oral hygiene could be the reason for stopping orthodontic treatment. For plaque removal, we use the airpolishing method, which makes it possible to clean hard-to-reach areas.
