PROPHILAXYS AND DENTAL HYGIENE

Profilaxie

The most important thing teenagers have to keep in mind is the fact that the teeth they have in their teen years are permanent and when damaged, they  will not be replaced by other natural teeth, which is why maintaining dental health is highly important. The first step, most simple and efficient, is hygiene: dental hygiene you do at home and the one performed in the dental office by a specialist are the most important parts of maintaining a good oral health.

Prophylaxis is the first and most important part of dental care. By respecting the prophylactic instructions you save time and effort, and avoid the possible discomfort of serious dental treatments.

During the professional prophylaxis session the bacterial plaque which cannot be brushed away at home will be removed with speacial tools. Bacterial plaque affects, in time, both the enamel and the gums. This is much more needed during teenage, when the hygiene and diet habits are not the best or lacking.

There are two types of dental prophylaxis:

  • personal: the regular brushing, regular use of dental floss and mouthwash and a healthy diet
  • professional: the periodical dental check-up, professional brushing and scaling twice a year.

Your dental kit for a beautiful and healthy smile, every day.

  • THE TOOTHBRUSH

    Interdental toothbrushes – are recommended to patients who wear fixed orthodontic appliances. It comes in different sizes and makes sure to clean areas which are not accessible to a usual toothbrush.

    Electric toothbrush – Many patients prefer to use this toothbrush because they feel it is more efficient and cleans better; it is very important to do the same movements as with a manual toothbrush. We recommend you to replace the head of the toothbrush after 3 months or earlier, depending on how worn out this is. We also recommend you to replace the head with a new one after you had had a flu.

    The manual toothbrush – must not be too rough; using a toothbrush with soft or medium bristles will help you avoid hurting your gums.

  • THE TOOTHPASTE

    Most toothpastes contain calcium, fluoride and an antiseptic substance. There are also toothpastes that contain a slightly abrasive substance or even a light anesthetic. Regardless of the toothpaste you choose, you must not forget that only by correctly brushing (consider technique, duration and frequency) you will enhance the quality of the selected toothpaste.

  • THE DENTAL FLOSS

    You can find dental floss (with or without handles) in drugstores, dental offices or hypermarkets. We recommend the use of dental floss at least once a day, in the evening, before brushing. If not possible, use it at least three times a week. The use of dental floss reduces tooth decay up to 80% since it can remove the bacterial plaque and food from areas which are not accessible to toothbrushes (interdental spaces).

  • THE MOUTHWASH AND THE WATERFLOSSER

    Mouthwash is an antiseptic and antibacterial product which controls the development of pathogenic germs in the oral cavity. This procedure does not replace the tooth brushing, but it completes it.

    The water flosser: this device is composed of a container – which can be filled with water or mouthwash – and a nozzle (or two, depending on the type of device used). You can adjust the power of the jet released by the nozzle to one jet or to diffused jet. Oral irrigation is used to clean inaccessible areas and to give a gum massage.

  • PROFESSIONAL DENTAL HYGIENE PROCEDURE

    Daily brushing is extremely important, but even if regularly and correctly done, it is not efficient in removing tartar deposits; you need a professional prophylaxis session in the dental office, where your teeth will be thoroughly cleaned and your tartar removed.

    Good oral hygiene is important for both aesthetic and general health reasons. Inadequate dental hygiene can lead to serious affections, such as gum disease, infections, bone loss in the jawbones, kidney affections, heart disease etc. A regular dental check-up will help you prevent such affections and maintain a good oral health.
