Preventive dentistry in Iași: 3 essential steps

Full professional cleaning is performed in specialised dental clinics, and it consists of 3 main stages:

    1. Ultrasonic scaling with LED. The first stage involves the removal of tartar and bacterial plaque from the tooth surface and in the subgingival and supragingival deposits, using ultra-fast vibrations that eliminate the debris. 
    2. Professional teeth polishing. This stage involves brushing the teeth using a special brush and a professional prophylaxis paste, ensuring the effective removal of dental stains and smoothing the tooth surfaces.
    3. Air Flow. The final stage of professional cleaning is, actually, an additional cleaning step performed using a jet of water mixed with sodium bicarbonate powder, aiming to remove even the finest debris or superficial discolourations.

Additionally, you can opt for topical fluoride applications or dental sealants to protect your teeth from potential cavities.
