Professional teeth cleaning

Dental plaque is a pale yellow biofilm, that develops naturally on the teeth. Like any biofilm, dental plaque is formed by colonizing bacteria trying to attach themselves to the tooth's smooth surface. Dental plaque starts to harden within 48 hours, and in about 10 days the plaque becomes dental calculus (tartar), hard and difficult to remove. Dental plaque can give rise to dental caries (tooth decay) and periodontal problems such as gingivitis and chronic periodontitis.

It is recommended to see your dentist or oral hygienist every 6 months for a check-up and teeth cleaning. Of course, individual oral hygiene also matters.

At our London clinic, professinal hygiene is carried out with an ultrasonic plaque remover.

During ultrasonic dental cleaning, the hygienist uses a Swiss-made instrument called an ultrasonic scaler. The scaler distributes untrasonic vibrations to literally blast dental tartar off of the teeth.

Most dental cleanings take between 30 minutes and an hour. Cleanings are painless, and performed in a comfortable, lying position in a dental chair.

Testimonials

Dear Dr Kaman, I must write to you saying what a fantastic Job you made of my teeth bottom jaw and lower jaw. Dr Zsuzsanna was just marvelous. The top denture feels just like my own teeth and very comfortable. Very little food gets trapped underneath and I only take my dentures out to clean after I have eaten. The bottom denture is OK but not as good as the top. So if in the future I can have bone grafting in my bottom Jaw so that I can have implants placed this is what I would like to do. Please let me know when this would be possible.

Best regards,

J. & G. I.
