Why the professional cleaning is important?

Yes! Everyone has it.

Smaller or larger. Black, brown, or yellow. The gums might be bleeding or not because of it, but anyone can have it. We have a few lucky patients who need scaling every three years, but it’s required annually for the majority. However, some are genetically susceptible to periodontal diseases and inflammation, and they need a professional scaling by the dental hygienist for half a year.

Calculus or tartar is a form of hardened dental plaque caused by the minerals of saliva. Tartar forms a rough and hardened surface that provides an ideal surface for further plaque formation. Certain habits, smoking, nutrition problems, bad oral hygiene can speed up the process. The calculus is firmly attached to the tooth, and it cant be removed with a simple toothbrush and can only be adequately removed by a specialist ( Dentist, Dental hygienist). Calculus formation is most abundant on the upper posterior teeth' buccal (cheek) surfaces and the lower front teeth' lingual (tongue) surfaces. These areas experience high salivary flow because of their proximity to salivary glands.

Unfortunately, if they are not removed professionally, they may have more severe consequences, not just foul odor and discolored teeth. Periodontitis is a common disease; just like caries, almost 100% of people are affected to some extent.

Calculus causes gingival inflammation, the first sign of which is bleeding of the gum, and the subsequent process will cause the tight gum to swell and recess. Unfortunately, the gum recession is irreversible, and the last stage is the loss of teeth.

Nowdays we have modern tools available for scaling (calculus removal). The most well-known is the ultrasonic depurator, which we also use in our clinic. The ultrasonic depurator does not damage the enamel of the tooth. These scalers work with vibration, and they spray cool water, and due to the vibration speed, the plaque and calculus will be dislodged. The procedure can be performed with or without anesthesia—some more information. Periodontitis increases the risk of diabetes, heart and circulation problems, and miscarriage. Does it sound scary? Ask our dentists and dental hygienists.

Az ultrahangos kezelést követően a fogfelszíneket egy speciális “homokfúvóval” un. airflow-val simára polírozzuk. A sima felszínek csökkentik a lepedék megtapadásának lehetőségét. Rendszeres fogmosással a tiszta, fogkőmentes felszín hosszú időn át megőrizhető. A fogkőeltávolítást követően a fognyaki részek érzékennyé válhatnak átmenetileg, melyet érzékenységet speciális fogkrémek használatával gyorsan meg lehet szüntetni.
