Prevention – Professional Scaling

Tartar helps the growth of bacteria on the teeth, which not only causes bad breath, but could also contribute to tooth loosening and tooth loss.

Dental tartar removal results in an aesthetic improvement. It helps you in achieving and maintaining good dental hygiene. It also prevents various periodontal diseases so common in Hungary, and is the key element in treating gingivitis and periodontitis. Professional cleaning contributes to maintaining your recovered dental health. It also prepares the teeth and the gum for various surgical, conservative, paediatric or prosthetic treatments.
If combined with proper dental hygiene, professional scaling stops the inflammation in the tissues. Oedema and bleeding on probing will end, probing depth decreases, new attachments develop and we can observe fibre re-attachments. Following scaling, plaque removal can be performed more efficiently, slowing down the accumulation of tartar, as it attaches to smooth tooth surfaces less firmly.
