The Professional Tooth Cleaning (PTC) is an important keystone for your dental hygiene. Despite good mouth hygiene, coatings still remain on difficult to reach areas between the teeth and gum egdes, which can only be removed with professional eqipment.
For the PTC high frequency equipment is used, along with a mixture of water, air and natriumcarbonate which removes the plaque completely. This technique also removes stains caused by coffee, nicotin and redwine.
To stop the plaque and staining the teeth are smooth polished. A flouride geleé coating gives an extra protection against plaque.
How frequelty a PTC is necessary, depends on the individual mouth hygiene care, as well as being prone to caries and Periodontosis.
Advisable is a PTC once or twice a year, by gum problems every 4 month.
