What is dental hygiene?

Tooth hygiene is a prophylactic dental procedure during which the bacteria 'full plaque and tartar are cleared throughout the mouth.

It is necessary to maintain healthy white teeth, fresh breath, healthy gums and prevent inflammation, gums bleeding and tooth sensitivity in the long term. Tooth hygiene is one of the most effective ways to protect your teeth from deterioration and to encourage the natural recovery of minerals.

During dental hygiene, it is important for our hygienists to teach our patients how to clean their teeth effectively, that’s why we invite to participate in the in a “SOLO PROFYLAXE” program.

Proper dental hygiene will reduce the incidence of dental and gum diseases - caries, gingivitis, which, if left untreated, can become inflammation of the supporting tissues of the teeth.

What is gingivitis?

Gingivitis - The main sign of gingivitis is bleeding gums, especially after brushing your teeth, in case of periodontitis, a person may not only experience bleeding gums but also lose bone, resulting in the loss of natural teeth.

The main reason for Gingivitis there are underscrubbed tooth breakers that contain about 95% of bacteria. The tooth surface is concave between the teeth, so the bacteria between the teeth are best cleaned with cross-tooth brushes (interdental brushes) – SOLO-STIX.

Toothstone formed for each person, but in good hygiene conditions, it is formed in small quantities and is easily removable. Good oral hygiene and regular visits to a professional dental hygienist will help avoid the effects of toothstone by keeping your teeth beautiful and healthy.

The toothstone creates an unpleasant smell from the mouth, gums bleeding, redness and swelling, and a favorable environment for bacteria that can contribute to the development of the carietus in the teeth and the loss of bone around the tooth. The toothstone causes inflammation of the gum, or gingivitis, which may lead to periodenite or inflammation of the supporting tissues.


In the early stages of periodontitis, only inflammation of the gums is visually detected, but careful examination also reveals bone loss. Teeth start to move, gaps and gum recessions appear, tooth roots are exposed.
