Oral hygiene, tartar

The best way to prevent dental problems is to practice good oral hygiene and to visit your den-tist regularly. By having your teeth checked at least once every six months, you minimise the risk of a major dental problem developing because your dentist can closely monitor the health condition of your teeth. It is also a good idea to have your teeth cleaned professionally by a dental hygienist every time you have a regular dental check-up. This oral hygiene treatment will not only improve the aesthetic appeal of your teeth; it will also protect you against a whole range of dental diseases.

What is plaque?

Plaque is a thin film-like substance forming on the surface of your teeth that consists of bacte-ria. Plaque formation is an almost inevitable consequence of eating. How strongly plaque can adhere to your teeth will greatly depend on the unique bacterial flora of your mouth and your tooth brushing habits. Removing this deposit from your teeth takes regular and thorough brushing, but, unfortunately, brushing does not completely remove all plaque.

Plaque is often visible to the naked eye, and occasionally it can build up under your gum line. As it builds up layer after layer, plaque interacts with the calcium in your saliva, creating tartar, which provides an ideal environment for various bacteria that produce substances damaging the gum and, over time, the periodontium. Normally, your gum adheres tightly to your teeth, but over time, or as a result of certain diseases, this may change and a gap may form between your tooth and your gum. The plaque building up in this gap may then cause inflammation.

Oral hygiene treatment once every six months is an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Call our dentistry in downtown Szeged at +36 30 206 9532 for an appointment for complex oral hy-giene treatment! We look forward to seeing you soon!

How do teeth become stained?

Acting in combination with any accumulated plaque, certain foods and beverages may stain your teeth, creating a yellowish-brownish layer on them. There is simply no home solution to remove this layer, however thoroughly you may brush your teeth.

Stains may be caused by the following factors:

  • smoking;
  • beverages containing tannins (coffee, tea, coke, and red wine);
  • juices and syrups made from berries;
  • soy sauce;
  • the active ingredients of certain mouthwash products.

What should you know about tartar?

Tartar or calculus is calcified, hardened dental plaque. Tartar damages your teeth as well as your gum because over time it leads to tooth decay and gingivitis, an inflammation of the soft gum tissue. As a result, your healthy pink gum turns red, sore, and swollen. Do your gums bleed spontaneously or when you brush your teeth? This is a typical symptom of gingivitis. In extreme cases, and in susceptible patients, gingivitis may lead to periodontitis.

If you do not have your tartar removed regularly and your gums are in a constant state of in-flammation, your gums will start to recede, become thin and atrophied. This inflammation gradually spreads along the roots of your teeth to your jaw bones, which may lead to the fol-lowing severe consequences:

  • your teeth may become loose;
  • your teeth may shift;
  • your teeth may become sensitive to cold and heat or when tapped;
  • you may lose your teeth.

There are no home remedies for removing plaque, stains, or tartar. You can keep your teeth healthy by seeing us once every six months to have your plaque, stains, and tartar removed. This involves a 30 to 40 minute pain-free oral hygiene treatment performed by a clinical dental hygienist or by a dentist. Sometimes a thorough dental hygiene treatment that gives your teeth back their original colour works as well as teeth whitening.

What happens during dental hygiene treatment?

  1. First, your dental hygienist thoroughly examines your teeth to get an overall picture of their current status and how much tartar you have.
     
  2. Then, he or she will remove your tartar and stains using an ultrasonic scaler. The tip of the scaler vibrates at a high frequency, forming tiny air bubbles that break down and remove your tartar from your teeth. As the scaler moves very gently, it does not ever damage your dental enamel.
     
  3. As an extra option completing ultrasonic scaling, the dental hygienist offers to apply Air-Brush salt cleansing. This involves spraying high-pressure water and a very fine salt mixture onto your teeth. This fine abrasive material cleans even the most difficult-to-reach gaps between the surfaces of your teeth and gently removes any stains.
     
  4. Finally, your dental hygienist or dentist polishes the surface of your teeth with special brushes, rubber bells, and polishing paste. This prevents plaque formation and makes your teeth appear shinier and more vibrant.
     
  5. As part of your dental hygienic treatment, we give you a number of useful tips on effec-tive home dental care and on what you can do to prevent plaque from forming on your teeth. These tips cover issues like:
  • how to choose the right tooth brush;
  • what is the right technique to brush your teeth;
  • how to use dental floss;
  • whether an interdental brush should be used or not;
  • why it is a good idea to also use a tongue cleaner; and
