About oral hygiene

The course of professional oral hygiene includes training in the rules of hygiene, and the selection of individual products that are optimal for each patient.

  • If your child learns to brush his teeth correctly from childhood, this will be the key to the health of his teeth and gums, his dazzling smile at any age, his self-confidence, and, consequently, his success in life.
  • Many people have brown plaque on their teeth from tea, coffee, and smoking. On the formed plaque, salts from saliva are deposited, to which microbes from the oral cavity are attached. This forms tartar.
  • In tartar and plaque, pathological microorganisms multiply at tremendous speed, causing first inflammation of the gums, and then inflammation of the ligaments of the teeth and bone tissue around the teeth.
  • First gingivitis develops, the first sign of which is bleeding of the gums, and then periodontitis, in which the teeth begin to loosen. If urgent measures are not taken, the development of periodontitis will lead to tooth loss.
  • The development of gingivitis and periodontitis is affected by ecology, living conditions, nutrition, and the general condition of the body. Moreover, the hereditary factor matters only in 2% of cases.
  • The frequency of deposits of tartar and plaque depends on the viscosity and composition of saliva, on the presence of bad habits (in particular, smoking)
  • The frequency of deposits of tartar and plaque also depends on the condition of the bite (crowding of the teeth), the quality of the toothbrush, and the frequency of individual hygiene.
  • The frequency of deposits of tartar and plaque also depends on the correct movement of the toothbrush during brushing (not the time devoted to personal hygiene, as is commonly believed among the people, but the correct movement of the toothbrush).
  • Naturally, diseases such as hypertension, urolithiasis, diabetes mellitus, and liver diseases also affect the frequency of deposits of deposits and stones.
  • Dense stained plaque and tartar cannot be completely removed with independent daily brushing. Therefore, it is necessary to regularly carry out hygiene procedures in a dental office.
  • For a visual demonstration to the patient and for a more thorough indication of the presence of plaque, the hygienist paints the teeth with a special liquid. In this case, clean teeth are not stained.
  • When staining teeth with a special liquid to indicate plaque, “fresh” plaque is painted in pink, and “old” for more than a day – in purple. And the patient himself can see those areas that need more thorough professional oral hygiene.
  • Caries and periodontal disease develop only in conditions of insufficient oral hygiene.
  • Prevention of caries and periodontal disease is regular professional hygiene. To remove tartar is as necessary as to treat tooth decay.
