Cleaning like the pros
The professional tooth cleaning at the dentist goes much further than the removal of the surface within the scope of the usual check-up.
First, the dentition is thoroughly examined, the teeth stained with special tinctures, if necessary, to make the pads visible.
Subsequently, both hard and soft deposits are removed from the tooth surfaces spaces.
Discoloration caused by coffee, tea and nicotine are also eliminated. In addition, deposits below the gum that you cannot reach yourself are gently removed with special ultrasound and hand instruments, the gingival pockets are thoroughly rinsed and disinfected.
Finally, the surfaces of the teeth are carefully polished so that no rough spots remain. For such a prophylaxis session you should take 60 to 90 minutes.
After a prophylactic session, your teeth are fluoridated. In this case, fluoride preparations are applied, which harden the enamel and make it more resistant to bacterial damage.
