PREVENTION AND HYGIENE
Scaling is a prophylactic dental procedure that removes plaque and supra gingival dental plaque formed on the surface – enamel or scaling – natural or artificial teeth cement.
Supra gingival dental plaque is the most common; It is initially colorless, then acquires a brownish tint and give an unsightly teeth, bad breath and cavities also producing.
Sub gingival plaque is tougher and darker, and while expands the tooth and the gum off, producing a favorable environment for bacterial growth.
Plaque is food debris and bacteria that forms on teeth immediately after eating. This is a colorless sticky substance, but if it is not removed by brushing over time turns into tartar or stone – a tough layer colorless or pale gray, yellowish.
Tartar is a threat to the health of the gums and supporting structures of tooth that it is a medium for the growth of bacteria that give rise to inflammatory processes.
The toolkit removes tartar by ultrasonic high frequency mechanical vibration (20 000 – 45 000 Hz). These devices can be driven by AC voltage oscillation or by electromagnetic tension. These devices does not injure your gums and teeth, and the water pressure released through massages, cleans and removes debris and pigmentation spots
After scaling longer remains small deposits on the tooth surface, which if not removed will be the basis for new scaling, to be removed by brushing and professional polish. Grinding is carried out by applying an abrasive slurry by means of a rotary tool with rubber. Scaling and prophylactic dental cleanings are methods recommended every 6 months and every 3 months for smokers.
Sanitation is the most effective with AirFlow and non traumatogene method for cleaning the oral cavity, gingivitis and marginal periodontitis prevention and prophylaxis.
Acting on the tooth surface a mixture of water and abrasives designed pressure as a jet-guided dental surfaces covered with plaque, food pigments deposited from the consumption of colored beverages (tea, coffee, cola) or tartar recently filed. Thus microorganisms and deposits are easily removed from the surface of teeth, and the teeth receive their natural color. Air-Flow system prophylaxis is very simple. Abrasive properties of bicarbonate are not so big, so enamel surface does not undergo any change, but is enough to remove plaque, pigmentation food and dental plaque.
Dental cleaning method Prophyflex3 air-flow system from Kavo is a completely painless procedure and the patient’s response is “Wow !!! … My teeth are even cleaner and whiter! “
