Beautiful, healthy teeth are partly a matter of genetics, but careful and regular oral care can help tremendously even less advantageous genetic conditions. Improper oral hygiene or lack of chewing will result in the calcification of plaque on the teeth, where bacteria will grow, producing tartar. Its main place of appearance is lower frontal teeth side facing the oral cavity, the upper sixth teeth and the saliva gland ducts, but it can also occur under the gingiva. Tartar sticks to the teeth and cannot be removed by brushing or mouth wash; it can only be removed with special tools by the dentist or the dental hygiene specialist. The professional term for this procedure is depuration. It used to be performed by hand tools, but these days the treatment is done with modern, mechanical ultrasound equipment. This special equipment produces reverberations by ultrasound, which cracks up the tartar, making it removable. This kind of treatment is less uncomfortable for patients.
After tartar removal teeth are polished with a uniquely composed dust. The essence of the procedure is that sand-like particles (hydrogen carbonate) are placed on the surface of the teeth by high pressure, mixed with water, which can remove even the smallest sediments on the surface (which may be caused by coffee, black tea, cigarettes, or artificial colourings in food) by not causing any damages on the surface of the tooth. Removing tartar is a very important treatment, because permanent tartar on the teeth will cause gingivitis or deterioration in the gums, leading to the loosening and even loss of teeth, and can become a source of infection with the bacteria reproducing in it. As a result of the dental hygiene treatment, the mouth will be suitable for outstanding quality and long-term restoration and aesthetic treatments.
