Brushing the teeth is very important for oral hygiene. You should brush your teeth at least twice a day (morning and evening) to prevent tooth decay and gum inflammation.
No matter how well you brush your teeth at home, there are certain bacteria that grow in the oral cavity (including dental surfaces) that cannot be removed by hand brushing. They can be removed in the dental office by a specialist.
These bacteria develop in time deep gum diseases (gingivitis, plaque, tartar, marginal periodontitis) which affect general health (especially heart diseases) !
To avoid the evolution of a gum disease, the dentists recommend professional brushing to be performed at an interval of at least 3 months.
This procedure is done with a piece mounted on the specialty chair (dental unit), a circular brush (with a small diameter containing hard plastic filaments) and a professional abrasive paste (with different flavors), which may contain or not fluorine – depending on the purpose of brushing.
The piece produces circular motions and the doctor applies the toothbrush on all dental surfaces with moderate force, in order to remove all existing plaque.
The procedure is 100% painless, and the patient’s feeling after brushing is described: “new teeth, perfectly clean, fresh breath! “.
Generally, in order to achieve a complete cleaning, it is recommended to associate brushing with a session of Air Flow (see description in next article).
