Brushing your teeth with tooth paste and using dental floss between the teeth at least twice a day is fundamental in the daily dental maintenance. To remove dental plaque or other persistent stains building up on your teeth, a professional cleaning is essential. With regular dental cleaning, the risk of oral diseases, such as periodontitis and caries, is essentially reduced.
At our dental clinic TandCity we will give you a thorough and professional cleaning adapted to your own specific needs. Some people are more exposed to the risk of getting mouth diseases than others, e.g. diabetics and smokers. Our main aim is always to provide the exact treatment needed for the individual. If desired, the treatment recommended can be made with a sedative.
A regular professional dental hygienist treatment consists of:
- A clinic control and information, incl a short periodontal check
- Aesthetic cleaning
- Deep cleaning if required
- Oral hygiene instructions and advice for a correct dental care
- If needed, recommendation of specific products
What is Periodontitis?
The early stage of gum disease, also called gingivitis, is an inflammation of the gum tissue, caused by bacteria in the gum. The most common sign of the inflammation is that the gums bleed easily, when you brush your teeth or use dental floss.
If the inflammation spreads deeper into the tissue, it can cause bone loss and potential tooth loss. If not treated, whole teeth can be lost.
Usually Periodontitis is caused by unsufficient oral hygiene, but it can also be caused by other factors, such as e.g. smoking, genetics, specific bacteria and diabetes.
If you want to avoid or prevent the risk of getting periodontitis, it is essential that you maintain a good oral hygiene, visit the dentist regularly and if possible stop smoking.
With a professional dental cleaning, you will not only save time and money. You will also get a healthy beautiful smile.
