Professional dental cleaning

For the health and the longevity of your teeth and gums, good oral hygiene is essential. Tooth decay and periodontitis are the main diseases of the teeth and gums that are caused by bacteria. These diseases can be prevented.

In the long run, just brushing ones teeth at home is not enough. Despite good oral hygiene at home, plaque can still build up and cause tooth decay and gum disease. This is why we recommend a regular professional cleaning.

During this treatment plaque and calculus (tartar) is thoroughly removed reducing bacteria in the mouth. The aim of a professional cleaning is the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease. This way diseases of the mouth can be prevented which could otherwise result in uncomfortable and expensive treatments. Besides tips for daily oral care at home (how do I brush my teeth properly), soft, sticky plaque and calculus (tartar) is removed. A final polish leaves the surface of the teeth smooth and makes it more difficult for new plaque to adhere.

Sparkling and hygienically clean teeth is the result.

There is no doubt about the great benefits of a professional cleaning. It should be carried out at least twice a year. In the event of poor dental and gum health, a professional dental cleaning should be carried out even more often.

We particularly recommend a professional dental cleaning for patients with periodontal disease and for patients with implants.

In the Marigan Clinic we treat periodontal pockets manually (root scaling) as well as with special ultrasonic technology (vector).
