We offer removal of tooth stone and tartar, as well as Airflow Cleaning.
If you choose to clean your teeth with our dental hygienist, you will remove plaque and tartar. The hygienist will also be able to remove some of the discoloration that you can get from, for example, coffee, tea, wine and nicotine.
Why is it important to clean your teeth?
Dental cleanings are important for maintaining good oral hygiene and healthy teeth. Cleaning also prevents bacterial accumulation in your mouth and dental disease. When you undergo a regular tooth cleaning with our dental hygienist, bacteria will not get stuck and form plaque.
What can happen if I do not get dental cleansing?
If plaque accumulates on your teeth, it can develop into inflammation of the gums, the palate and the teeth. The cleaning also prevents gum disease such as gingivitis, periodontitis and caries.
How does the treatment happen?
Our dental hygienist will carefully examine your teeth before the plaque removal. High-pressure water and ultrasound have for the most part replaced the mechanical instruments used in the past, and made tooth cleaning a more enjoyable experience. The treatment ends with a thorough polishing of all your teeth, and you go home with a clean and fresh mouth.
What can I do to maintain good oral hygiene myself?
You can make sure you have a good oral hygiene by brushing your teeth at least twice a day and using toothpicks and floss regularly.
You can even prevent plaque and tartar formation this way:
- Meals: Avoid snacks as well as sour and sugary foods.
- Brush your teeth frequently: Thoroughly brush your teeth, preferably after each meal. Use toothpicks and floss frequently.
- Dental cleaning: Get tooth cleaning from our dental hygienist at least once a year.
How often should I get dental cleansing?
The need for tooth cleaning by hygienist depends on your tooth position. Also, it plays a big role how careful you are with oral hygiene. Some patients would like to have cleaning 3-4 times a year. Others think it is enough once a year. Our dental hygienist will be able to give you a recommendation on how often your teeth need dental cleaning.
