Descaling and dental hygiene


Descaling and dental hygiene


Oral and periodontal heaths are based on complete examination and a series of treatments, such as descaling carried out by the dental hygienist or dentist. It allows ensuring optimal durability to your teeth and developing a personalized program whose objectives is to ensure your comfort in the mouth and to maintain your teeth and gums without problems throughout your life. The principles of dental hygiene are integrated into this approach.

Additional information on descaling

Good dental hygiene and removal of bacterial deposits by regular scaling (every 6 months to 1 year) is the best prevention against cavities and periodontitis. Descaling aim particularly teeth with tartar, plaque, stains or stains (tea-coffee-cigarette-cigar). The clearest signs of periodontitis are gingival bleeding, inflamed gums (red, swollen), the presence of pockets and bone resorption around the teeth causing their mobility, bad breath. Gingival bleeding can be spontaneous, due to brushing or eating.
Analyzes and treatments control and eliminate as much as possible the bacterial deposits in the form of plaque and tartar. After a careful descaling, removal of extrinsic stains and polishing, demonstration of simple hygiene methods may be given to patients. A complete assessment of your needs will be recorded in your file and will allow monitoring.
Impeccable oral health, healthy gums, teeth without unsightly tints, less mobile teeth and knowledge of the best personalized methods to maintain your dental health, without gingivitis, periodontitis or caries. Good breath and less or no sensitivity to cold or during the brushing.
The complete treatment includes radiography, the pockets probing, debridement above and / or sub gingival (removal of excess plaque and calculus), polishing (with removal of stains and coloration), mucosal, teeth and an occlusion examination.

The dental hygienist adapts his treatment and technique to your sensitivity. Anesthetics may be used. Normally, gentleness is the main principle. The instrumentation consists of using manual, ultrasonic and aero-polisher instruments.

One to two sessions of 90 minutes to 120 minutes duration are required, as well as a 60-minute session for reminder appointments every 3, 6 or 12 months (depending on the patient).

Without prior medical check-up, an anamnesis should be completed to avoid inconvenience, allergies or taking certain medicines that may interact with treatments.
After reviewing your profile, an evolutionary follow-up is adapted to your needs. About 3 out of 4 people suffer at a moment in their lives from periodontal disease. It is estimated that 70% of lost teeth are caused by periodontitis. If we intervene in time, the treatment is simple and the risk of recurrence is low in condition that the patient maintains excellent dento-oral hygiene.
