There are points in the oral cavity that are hard to reach or feel painful while brushing. These points are gradually neglected and ignored, so plaque often builds up which can lead to adverse effects such as caries or gingivitis. Pigmentation from food and drinks often builds up on the tooth surface and represents not only an aesthetic defect, but also an important causal factor in the emergence of the aforementioned pathologies. Most commonly, pigmentation is found in smokers and people who drink a lot of coloured beverages such as coffee and tea. These stains are either very difficult to remove with regular teeth brushing or cannot be removed at all. The pigmentation manifests itself as dark brown or even black stains on the surface of the tooth and it is usually more intense next to the gum.
To maintain our oral health at an optimum level, we must let an expert clean our teeth and oral structures at least twice a year. Cleaning teeth represents the first stage in the treatment of periodontitis. Descaling is a procedure that removes tooth impurity (tartar above and below the gingiva, white deposits (plaque), microorganisms and staining). By utilising the latest technology, the process becomes faster and more comfortable for the patient.
The dental air flow prophy polisher ejects tiny granules based on sodium-bicarbonate solution dispersed in water, thus cleaning the teeth and restoring their natural cleanliness. After the procedure, teeth are smooth and white, and new pigmentation will appear much slower.
