Prevention of teeth/mouth modifications are an important part of our work. It is obvious for everybody, that it is much simpler, gentler, and cheaper to do conservative treatment instead of restorative treatments. Is your gum bleeding while the brushing? Have you ever realised that the problem can be solved?
People above 35 lose more teeth because of periodontal diseases than because of tooth decay. These processes start with gingival bleeding easy for the patient to notice. For this reason we pay extra attention to preservation of the health of gum, to the tissues containing the teeth. We start this process by a thorough examination, than comes a precise cleaning of the teeth, and continues with calculus removal. Calculus removal takes longer than a few minutes at our clinic: after ultrasonic scaling follows manual smoothing and the process is finished with polishing by sand-blaster.To give adequate information on this and to improve the oral hygiene of the patient also helps prevention. We can disclose dental plaque (film) so as the patient can see it and so we help the patient in keeping clean the hidden areas as well. In case of returning patients we check the results of our instructions and provide even more motivation. An important part of prevention in adulthood, –besides improving personal oral care –, are the regular check-ups and professional clinical cleansing. At the semi-annual check-ups, even the smallest, initial, not yet problematic caries can be found, which in this initial state, can be maintained by using of simple protective dental creme (not toothpaste), and so drilling can be avoided.
