Nowadays, the smile is a significant ingredient for communicative success. Beautiful and healthy teeth enable people to feel safe and self-confident. Most oral cavity problems start due to poor dental hygiene. Unfortunately, regular cleaning of the teeth and the use of various aids of dental care does not guarantee the 100% removal of plaque.

There are areas between the teeth and gums that are difficult to access in a home setting. In places where food residues regularly accumulate, the dental plaque gets mineralised and turns into calculus. Dental plaque and calculus endanger the health of teeth, as well as gums. The large amount of micro-organisms in their composition generates a beneficial environment for the development of caries and gingivitis. Therefore, it is recommended to perform professional dental hygiene once every six months. Professional dental hygiene usually lasts for approximately one hour.

Complete dental hygiene includes tartar removal, pigment removal, fluoride gel application and individual hygiene instruction.

Dental hygienist is a specialist that uses new materials and technologies to perform complete hygiene or cleaning procedures of the oral cavity, as well as gives advice on the methods and equipment that enables access to areas that are otherwise difficult to access and on the hygiene of the oral cavity.


Removal of plaque. Removal of plaque is the main constituent of dental hygiene and takes most of the time. The hygienist removes dental plaque, subgingival and supragingival calculus. Ultrasound, hand tools and a sodium bicarbonate jet are used to remove plaque and calculus. The dentist or the hygienist combines these methods as required in every particular case.

Removal of pigment. Visible pigment that deteriorates the visual appearance of the teeth may develop on the enamel of the tooth under the influence of different external factors and food products. Special abrasive pastes and the sodium bicarbonate jet device are used to remove the pigment – the technology is based on a spray jet containing water and sodium bicarbonate particles that is directed towards the teeth under high pressure, thus removing the calculus, pigment and soft plaque. This method enables perfect cleaning of the spaces between the teeth. After the removal of the pigment, the teeth regain their naturally white color.

Application of fluoride agents. After the removal of the calculus, plaque and pigment, the specialist treats the dental enamel with fluoride-containing agents for preventive purposes. The fluoride agents ensure the protection of teeth against caries. Individual hygiene instruction. The hygienist draws the patient’s attention to the areas in the oral cavity that require more thorough care. The professional talks about the agents that are recommended for the daily care of your teeth, as well as what should be avoided.
