Oral hygiene is a very important aspect of our health. You need professional oral hygiene if you regularly complain of having bad breath, your teeth are moving or if your gum is bleeding and you have a lot of plaque that is difficult to remove.

Professional oral hygiene procedure is a mechanical way to remove bacterial plaque and tartar, including toxins accumulated on the surfaces of teeth. These procedures are performed by dentist or dental hygienist.
Our clinic uses the following methods for professional hygiene procedures:
- manual instruments (curettes);
- ultrasonic scaler;
- “Air Flow” apparatus;
- polishing paste.
Manual instruments (curettes) is special sharp and thin instruments, which are used by dentist or dental hygienist to remove plaque and tartar from tooth surface.
Ultrasonic scaler is a special device which produces high frequency oscillations which help to clean teeth surfaces effectively – it removes soft and hard teeth plaque and plaque above the gum.
“Air–flow” is one of the newest method to remove dental plaque. It is an excellent and unpainful way to remove nicotine, coffee and tea plaque and to whiten your teeth. Strong flow of air, water and medical soda powder directed perpendicular to the tooth surface quickly and without pain removes accumulated plaque. This method is special, because the tooth surface is cleaned at a distance, so hard tooth tissues and gum remains undamaged. After the procedure with “Air Flow” you’ll be surprised by your naturally bright smile, comfort and tidiness in your mouth.
