Professional cleaning and Prophylaxis

 

Good oral hygiene is very important, not only for your teeth but for general health as well. It is important to note that the infections of the oral cavity such as periodontal disease or chronic periapical osteitis (granuloma) can be the cause of various other diseases (arthritis, cardiac or cerebral insult, renal disease or dermatologic disease).
The goal of dentistry is not only to treat but also to work preventively and educate our patients. Consequently we gladly devote and dedicate our time to dental hygiene and prophylaxis.
Comfortable and painless removal of soft and hard dental plaque is done with Sonicflex tips and air polished with a Prophyflex tip. We protect the teeth by fluoridising and sealing. Good hygiene is the basis of health and beauty.

Advice on dental hygiene

How often should I brush my teeth?

According to the American Dental Association it is enough to brush your teeth twice a day. Choose your tooth brush carefully, it should not be too large so that it can reach everywhere. Rather choose a medium hard or a soft brush than a hard one. Brush the surfaces of your teeth thoroughly using circular motions.

 

How often should I floss?

Use dental floss at least once a day. There are many different types of dental floss. Choose a product that suits you best. Even if your teeth are really close together, thin, waxed dental floss can pass through the narrowest of gaps. You can use very practical interdental brushes which can reach even the most inaccessible areas between the teeth.

Should I use mouth rinse?

The role of mouth rinse is primarily to reduce bacterial plaque. Along with mechanic brushing, the effect of chlorhexidin, which is the active ingredient of the rinse, slows down the development of the bacterial biofilm. There are many pleasant products of different concentrations to choose from. It is best to consult your dentist for the mouthwash choices that are best for you.
