Dental caries is a globally widespread disease, which damages the structure of our teeth and can lead to pain, tooth loss and infection. Therefore, it is advised that regular checks and preventatives measures be taken to prevent serious dental problems.
At Eurodental, we offer you various dental hygiene examinations and treatments.
Dental sealant application
The use of dental sealants is a good means of prevention. Pits and frissures found on the chewing surface of our teeth can be too deep, which makes oral hygiene along these surfaces difficult. When brushing our teeth at home, we cannot always clean the grooves properly. As a result, accumulation of bacteria makes dental caries common in these areas. Sealants are thin plastic-like coating applied to the chewing surface of the molars. This coating prevents the accumulation of plaque and formation of dental cavities in our teeth.
Ultrasonic Plaque removal
Plaque is a soft white layer which forms on the surface of our teeth and under our gum line, containing large amounts of bacteria. If left unchecked for a few days, it will harden and form tartar. Bacteria and food particles accumulate in the spaces between our gum and teeth, and produce chemicals and toxins that cause inflammation of the gum around the teeth. It is essential to professionally clean the teeth from plaque to prevent periodontal diseases. Plaque and tartar, left untreated for a longer period of time, will be required to be removed using ultrasonic plaque removal methods. These methods are designed to thoroughly clean our teeth under and above the gum line without damaging the gum. Ultrasonic plaque removal not only scrapes away bacterial plaque easily and fast, but also creates a soft surface where bacteria will not be able to accumulate. This soft surface can be kept clean and free from plaque for a long time by regular brushing at home.
It is advisable to undergo plaque removal and a thorough dental cleaning every six months.
