Scale is a common problem for many of our patients. At Tandestetik Stockholm you will enjoy the highest level of professional care with an expert dental cleaning that results in a clean and fresh mouth. This process involves scale removal, remedying discoloration and finally polishing your teeth. We want you to smile and shine.
Dental cleanings can differ and knowing what differentiates each type helps determine which cleaning is best suited for you. Understanding the different options available to you is relevant to your oral health. At Tandestetik Stockholm, we like to share this information with our patients, because experience has shown us that the more aware our patients are, the better the long-term results.
The different types of dental cleanings available to you
Today there are three main types of dental cleanings that we most commonly use: these are Prophylaxis Cleaning, Scaling & Root Planing, and Gross Debridement. Obviously, the outcome of these three treatments will each result in you having cleaner teeth, however each one of these treatments involves a different process and for distinct reasons linked to the state of your overall oral health. In the following paragraphs, we will provide you with a brief overview of these treatments to explain why and in which circumstances each specific type of cleaning is performed.
A prophylaxis cleaning, commonly known as a routine cleaning, is the preferred option we perform at Tandestetik Stockholm on healthy patients who simply require a routine oral maintenance in order to enjoy good dental hygiene and ensure long-term oral health.
The prophylaxis cleaning process involves removing the plaque that has accumulated on your teeth, and when required, we remove the deeper, hardened plaque, also known as calculus. We also look out for any additional stains that can be on your teeth’s surface. Tandestetik Stockholm does not choose to administer prophylaxis on very damaged teeth.
However, it is an efficient and proven dental cleaning procedure that is designed to preserve healthy teeth that also benefit from ongoing good daily oral hygiene habits. The other benefit of a regular prophylaxis cleaning is that during the examination of the entire oral cavity, we have the opportunity to screen for any trace of oral cancer, evaluate potential risk of periodontitis or even identify signs of other medical medical problems such as diabetes or kidney dysfunctions.
Tandestetik Stockholm recommends this cleaning treatment twice a year in order to prevent plaque build-ups on the surface of your teeth and eradicate hardened plaque in the event that it has developed.
Scaling and root planing
A scaling and root planing also goes under the name of deep cleaning. Tandestetik Stockholm usually calls upon this type of treatment when the patient shows signs of a high risk of developing gum disease or who is already suffering this ailment.
When excess plaque builds up over time without being cleaned off, it usually hardens and evolves into tartar or calculus. As a result, this build-up can lead to gum disease and other serious forms of oral health complications. When faced with a patient suffering from this type of ailment, Tandestetik Stockholm administers a scaling and root planning treatment, since it is the safest way of ensuring that hardened plaque is removed from the patient’s teeth. You can usually identify the signs indicating the need for a scaling and root planning treatment if you suffer from bleeding or swollen gums or have loose teeth.
Tandestetik Stockholm will go to great lengths to ensure you benefit from the safest and most caring treatment possible to ensure that you enjoy a pain-free dental cleaning. We also take this opportunity to work out a long-term program to bring your teeth back to their best condition as well as look at the cosmetic solution at which we excel to restore your smile and confidence.
Tandestetik Stockholm administers a gross debridement dental cleaning procedure when there is a need to identify any issues or conditions that are potentially undetected prior to our proceeding with a dental cleaning.
We usually choose to perform a gross debridement on patients who either failed to visit us during the past twelve months or who alternatively, have developed a build-up of hardened plaque on their teeth’s surface. Essentially, the gross debridement treatment involves the thorough removal of any and all plaque build-ups on your teeth and gums. When we perform a simple gross debridement, it is generally a relatively rapid procedure. However, when we are faced with a gross debridement that needs to be administered on damaged teeth showing a substantial amount of long-term plaque build-up, we usually take longer to finalise the process.
As with the scaling and root planning procedure, Tandestetik Stockholm will take all the precautions to ensure you benefit from a safe and caring treatment to ensure a pain-free dental cleaning.
We also like to work out with you a long-term program to bring your teeth back to their former condition or better. We have a wide range of cosmetic solutions at which we excel to restore your smile and confidence.
