hygienists — who are they and why go to them

27 March 2020, 00:15

No mat­ter how care­ful­ly we take care of our teeth at home, it is impos­si­ble to clean them com­plete­ly. And this has its con­se­quences: dark­en­ing and tar­nish­ing of the enam­el, inflam­ma­tion of the gums, bad breath from the mouth and even being over­weight (at least, accord­ing to Japan­ese doc­tors: the bac­te­ria that accu­mu­late in the mouth cause obe­si­ty). So reg­u­lar and pro­fes­sion­al teeth clean­ing is indis­pens­able.

oral hygiene - brushing teeth

We asked den­tists from a mod­ern pri­vate den­tal clin­ic about prices for hygien­ic clean­ing of teeth, how to choose your doc­tor and make an appoint­ment. Porce­lain in Kyiv. We will talk about indi­ca­tions and con­traindi­ca­tions, types and results of this pro­ce­dure below.

Who needs a dental cleaning

Above, we decid­ed that a com­pre­hen­sive teeth clean­ing will not be super­flu­ous for any­one, but it is espe­cial­ly nec­es­sary:

  • before pro­fes­sion­al whiten­ing;
  • before installing fill­ings, implants and oth­er pro­ce­dures;
  • in the pres­ence of den­tal plaque;
  • with inflam­ma­tion of the gums;
  • to remove tar­tar;
  • before and after removal of braces.

Hygiene pro­ce­dures in the den­tal office reduce the risk of caries, gum reces­sion, and peri­odon­tal dis­ease. After a vis­it to the clin­ic, the teeth bright­en by 1–2 tones, the enam­el becomes smooth and shiny.

Types of cleaning: what to choose — ultrasound or laser

Teeth clean­ing in Kyiv is car­ried out using ultra­sound or laser. Both meth­ods are non-con­tact, pain­less and effec­tive, the pro­ce­dure lasts from 20 to 40 min­utes. In the first case, clean­ing is per­formed using a sound wave, which destroys the struc­ture of hard den­tal deposits and elim­i­nates tar­tar even in sub­gin­gi­val pock­ets. Ultra­sound is con­traindi­cat­ed in patients under 18 years of age, with chron­ic asth­ma and bron­chi­tis, hepati­tis, HIV, tuber­cu­lo­sis, car­diac arrhyth­mia.

Oral hygiene with a laser is a point effect on prob­lem areas. The beam destroys the water mol­e­cules in the tar­tar and they just fall off. At the same time, the enam­el does not suf­fer in any way, because its struc­ture is much stronger. But you will be for­bid­den to brush your teeth with a laser in any den­tistry if you have the con­traindi­ca­tions list­ed above, as well as while wear­ing braces, preg­nan­cy and lac­ta­tion.

The patient can inde­pen­dent­ly decide on the pro­ce­dure, based only on its cost. The final choice should be made by a pro­fes­sion­al after a per­son­al exam­i­na­tion and based on the indi­vid­ual tes­ti­mo­ny of the client.
