In order to maintain an average hygiene of the oral cavity, professional teeth cleaning is recommended twice a year. It should also be performed prior to any surgical interventions of the oral cavity in order to reduce the risk of infections.
Professional cleaning is the first step of periodontal therapy.
In special conditions such as pregnancy, patients with diabetes, patients on immunosuppressive therapy, in cases of difficult hygiene (i.e. compression for lack of space, motor or psychic reasons), and for patients on orthodontic therapy, it should be performed more often.
In our clinic, the professional cleaning is performed according to the highest EU standards and includes:
- Instruction, motivation and correction of the oral cavity hygiene
- Removal of hard and soft deposits on teeth (with “sound” instruments, manual instruments, sandblasting)
- Polishing and fluoride treatment
Usually, it is conducted without anesthesia. For sensitive teeth, however, it is possible to anesthetize sensible areas.
