Dental Hygienic Treatment
Oral hygiene is the most important for keeping the health of the teeth. Oral hygienic treatments at home (that is basically, tooth-brushing, but maybe the use of dental floss, oral shower, etc.) are at least as important factors of oral hygiene, as professional hygiene.
When talking about oral hygiene at the surgery, primarily the removal of calculus should be thought of. Calculus is actually remainder of food, or so-called plaque. Plaque sticks to the teeth, and then attracts minerals and so they become harder and harder, and finally they may even form a uniform layer on a tooth. Plaque typically sticks to the tooth near the gums and at places where the tooth-brush and the self-cleaning mechanisms of the mouth cannot reach.
A result of the calculus is gingivitis, which causes only bleeding at first, but in an advanced state even drastic changes are observed: the teeth simply start to absorb.
In order to prevent this, frequent tooth-brushing two or rather three times a day is necessary using quality tooth-paste and tooth-brush (which should be electric, as it has a much better cleaning efficiency). The dental floss is not a luxurious thing either, its use requires special attention and decision, as a thorough cleaning using dental floss takes more time than brushing the teeth.
The lack of oral hygiene at home cannot be balanced at the dentists'. However, modern technology allows for dental interventions supplementing oral hygiene at home and making it more efficient. The removal of gingival pockets, stopping receding gums is only the last stage, where – hopefully – the possible least people need to arrive at. In the best case the work of the dentist is limited to removing calculus using some ultrasonic or other solution. Oral hygiene at home can reach its best efficiency this way.
