Prevention in dentistry plays a very important role. It prevents caries and periodontal diseases of the oral cavity. It allows the elimination of unpleasant odor from the mouth and reduces discoloration from coffee, cigarettes, tea, etc. We provide patients with a full range of professionally conducted preventive treatments using modern and proven methods. We adapt the treatment plan to each patient individually.
In the field of prophylaxis, we offer:
- scaling, i.e. removal of tartar
- teeth varnishing / fluoridation
- oral hygiene instruction
- sealing teeth
The above activities are also an introduction to teeth whitening. Oral hygiene guarantees a whiter smile and keeps the teeth in perfect condition.
Oral hygiene training
Instruction includes detailed information on proper oral hygiene. After the examination, the hygienist selects the appropriate tooth brushing technique individually. It varies depending on the patient’s needs, the condition of his teeth and periodontium. Remember that toothbrush and toothpaste are not everything! It is very important to clean the interdental spaces with dental floss or interdental brushes. Tongue washing is an extremely important point in oral hygiene. For this purpose, scrapers are used to remove deposits and plaque from the tongue.
Prophylactic dental treatments:
is a procedure based on the removal of tartar. The accumulation of plaque is very harmful to the health of the oral cavity and the entire body. Scaling is performed using ultrasonic devices. To prevent plaque build-up, tooth surfaces are polished using brushes, pastes or rubber bands. This ensures a pleasant feeling of smoothness.
is a procedure to remove sediment and discoloration. It is often a supplement to scaling, as it cleans the interdental spaces very well. So, such gaps where no other tool or brush can reach. Each sandblasting ends with polishing of all cleaned tooth surfaces.
is the application of a special fluorine varnish to the surfaces of all teeth with a high fluoride content. The procedure is performed both in children (deciduous and permanent teeth) and adults. Varnishing strengthens the teeth and makes them more resistant to decay. It is mainly used in the prevention of caries and tooth hypersensitivity.
It covers the mucous membranes and is associated with an extensive loss of gingival tissues and bones in the interdental spaces.
Treating a recession begins with eliminating the factors that contribute to damage to the necks of the teeth. First, remove the tartar and deposits that lie on the teeth. A patient suffering from a recession should be taught the appropriate method of brushing teeth and caring for oral hygiene. It is also very important to change the toothbrush to one that will damage the gums as little as possible.
Gum reconstruction method
Treating gingival recessions involves repairing the gum tissue that has been lost. For this purpose, a surgical procedure classified as so-called should be performed. Periosurgery (mucogingival surgery), which consists in rebuilding atrophic gums The exact method of gingival reconstruction and treatment of gingival recession is selected individually for each patient after a thorough interview and medical consultation. The procedure is performed in a dentist’s office under local anesthesia.
Controlled regeneration method
The treatments performed to treat gingival recessions include, among others, transplant of tissue taken from the palate or moving a flap of mucosa from the recession area. Another approach may be to use a controlled regeneration method. This method consists in supplementing the bone defect – the type of supplementation is selected by the doctor adequately to the patient’s health condition.
