Oral hygiene

The causes for tartar buildup

Numerous materials presented in oral cavity can make deposit on the dental surface. These materials play an important role in the periodontal disease. Plaque comes off on the improperly cleaned surface and contains plenty of bacteria. When this plaque calcifies tartar forms. This is usually located either supra or subgingivally.


Inflammation might be caused under the gums if we do not remove plaque properly by brushing our teeth. The tissue becomes painful, starts bleeding and separates from teeth. Deeper inflammation can cause bone loss. The teeth start to migrate,  or even fall out.

Oral Hygiene

We describe and teach each patient how to use the tooth brush more effective to save their oral hygiene. Using of proper technique maintains the patient’s gums, teeth and restorations. This extends the life of teeth.

Tartar removal

We employ this technique when treating inflamed gum and periodontal diseases. First of all we anesthetize the mucosa with a 10% Lidocaine spray. Then we use an Ultrasonic scaler. This device induces vibrations and removes any tartar build-up effectively. After the removal we polish the surface with a Jet Air Polisher unit. Smooth surfaces are less favourable for plaque attachment.

Postoperative care

After this procedure the cervical sensitivity might occur. It can be eliminated within 1-2 weeks by using Sensitive toothpaste, or Fluor gel.
