A range of different pathologies can be suffered, the most common of which are gingivitis
(gum inflammation/infection) and periodontitis (bone inflammation/infection).
The most common causes of this are bacterial plaque and tartar.
Certain bacteria produce toxins that can destroy the collagen forming the base structure for bones and gums; the progression of these conditions leads to bone and gum loss, and ultimately the loss of teeth. The best way to prevent this is professional cleaning or tartar removal every 6 months, and good oral hygiene every 12 hours, using adequate techniques and materials.
Minor surgery, performed by a specialist professional, is sometimes necessary, involving scraping and smoothing the root structure and removal of bacteria, supported by antibiotic treatment.
Our professional cleaning and tartar removal takes place during a single consultation with two phases:
1) Ultrasound cleaning, to remove tartar on and underneath the gums;
2) Jet polishing; a gentle jet cleans, whitens and smoothes the surface of your teeth, leaving them whiter and softer.
