Stages of tooth professional hygiene

The procedure of professional oral hygiene usually includes the following stages:

  • Assessment of the patient’s oral cavity condition. The specialist examines the patient and evaluates the condition of the teeth and gums.

  • Removal of dental plaque and tartar. Special instruments are used to remove dental plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces, allowing for cleaning of hard-to-reach areas and elimination of sources of inflammation.

  • Teaching proper brushing technique. The dentist demonstrates to the patient how to correctly brush their teeth at home.

  • Application of protective agents. The dentist may apply special protective agents, such as remineralizing gels, to strengthen the teeth and prevent the development of caries.
