First Appointment

    The Dentist or Dental Hygienist will analyze your periodontal (gum) disease during your initial appointment. The Calibrated Periodontal Probe is used for this examination. It measures the depth of space between your gum and tooth – it is called a pocket. Along with it, it is monitoring the gums possibly bleeding after the contact with the Probe and the presence of the Tartar. This examination evaluates not only the real condition of your gums and periodontal disease, but also the level of your mouth hygiene. The individual curative and preventive plan of care is scheduled based on the results of this examination. The aim of this plan is to heal the inflammation in your gums and to slow down, or stop the progress of your Paradontosis.

Professional Teeth Cleaning – Dental Hygiene

    We remove dental plaque from the teeth’s surface during the brushing. The dental plaque is consisting of soft food leftovers and microorganisms. Its consistency is sticky, covering coherently the surface of tooth crowns. It is formed constantly; the bacterial existence in it supports the cavity and gingivitis. If we want to protect our teeth against these harmful effects we must learn their correct mechanical removal.  If your gums do not bleed, the Dental Hygienist will provide cleaning of dental plaque and the cavity above the gums by a dental instrument or ultra-sound.  Along with it all the unfavorable surface chromatoses will be removed by a rubber cup or Air-powder polishing (Air-flow). At the end of the examination the Dental Hygienist will guide you through the correct teeth cleaning technique and all the necessary tools for it. A regular appointment is once every six months and lasts about 60 minutes.

If your gums are inflamed, bleeding, or the pockets are deeper than 3 or more mms it is an infliction of Paradontosis (expertly called Periodontitis). Together with it loosening of teeth and exposed teeth necks can be present. The dental plaque and tartar cumulate in the deep pockets in this phase. It is not possible to remove them only by home care. The dental plaque remains hidden deep in the pocket, supports its further deepening and deterioration of teeth loosening. The care, related to this phase, consists on removing dental plaque and tartar from deep pockets and polishing the surface of affected roots. This procedure is more time consuming, it is carried out gradually and usually takes a few one hour appointments.
