Professional oral hygiene and prophylaxis
What is it?
It is a procedure that removes soft and hard dental plaque using special instruments in the oral hygienist's office. Dental plaque is one of the most common causes of gum inflammation, untimely caries, periodontitis (better known as periodontal disease), and early tooth loss, so it is very important that they are removed on time.
Dental and gum disease due to poor oral hygiene
The main cause of dental and gum disease is poor personal oral hygiene. Diseases caused by poor personal oral hygiene can be prevented by regularly visiting a dentist for preventive examination and an oral hygienist, who not only performs professional oral hygiene, but also selects appropriate dental care at home. Insufficient food chewing, frequent consumption of soft foods and lack of salt in the body can also contribute to the onset of disease.
