Why is it worth removing tartar?

If you brush your teeth incorrectly or too briefly, bacteria left on them forms a deposit that is initially unnoticeable. After about 48 hours, the undissolved deposit hardens and adheres permanently to the tooth. It is already impossible to remove by brushing. In the next step the tartar is created. The bacteria it contains produce acids that destroy the enamel and cause tooth decay. They also produce toxins that cause inflammation of the gums around the tooth, which is manifested by swelling, bleeding and redness, and unpleasant smell of the mouth. Over time, the bones are damaged and the tooth is shaken.

The descaling procedure is painless. It is broken down by a special tip carrying ultrasonic vibrations (scaler). After descaling, it is recommended to sandblast in order to remove any deposits left on the teeth, polish the teeth surface and use a concentrated fluoride preparation.

What is tooth sandblasting about?

During the treatment, a pressurised dental sandblasting machine accelerates particles of special powder which, in contact with the tooth surface, scrape plaque and discolorations. After tooth sandblasting, we perform fluoridation of teeth in order to strengthen the tooth enamel.
