There are excellent toothpastes, which are used for inflammation of the gums and can reduce such symptoms as: bleeding gums, swelling, cyanosis or, on the contrary, their redness, pain when brushing your teeth. These symptoms are characteristic of gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis.
Ultrasonic removal of tartar is the most effective way of professional oral hygiene. Its advantage is that it allows you to clean your teeth from any type of dental plaque - 1) supragingival dental calculus, 2) subgingival stone, 3) black pigment deposit, 4) partially mineralized soft microbial dental plaque.
The Vector (Paro ™) machine is an ultrasonic dental scaler in dental practice. It has a number of significant differences from traditional ultrasonic scalers, and is positioned by the manufacturer as an innovative tool in the treatment of periodontitis. In this article, we will analyze in detail whether Vector really is so effective to remove subgingival dental deposits, we will give comparative foreign clinical studies of the effectiveness of different ultrasonic scalers, and whether it is worth the money for Vector procedures such big money.
Most often, plaque has a bacterial origin and is associated with poor oral hygiene. However, in some people, even with good hygiene, black patches can appear. In adults, this is most often associated with the deposition of pigments (phenolic compounds) contained in nicotine, tea and coffee.
Professional teeth cleaning is a procedure that involves the removal of hard dental deposits and pigment deposits, which is carried out at a dentist’s appointment. Cleaning of tartar and pigment can be done by various methods (ultrasound, AirFlow, Vector), or a combination of them. At home, with the help of a toothbrush and toothpaste, you can successfully remove only soft plaque from the teeth (Fig.
Tartar is a fully or partially mineralized mild microbial plaque that was not removed in time using oral hygiene procedures. In the oral cavity there is a constant reproduction of microflora (especially after eating), which leads to an increase in the mass of soft microbial dental plaque.
Air flow brushing occurs by affecting the teeth with compressed air, water and fine particles of sodium bicarbonate. This method is developed by the Swiss company EMS (Electro medical system), and as we see it has a lot in common with sandblasting. Indications for use - removal of pigment and bacterial plaque, removal of hard dental deposits of small size, polishing of tooth enamel, polishing of the root surface in periodontal pockets up to 5 mm deep
The ability to remove dental deposits at home will depend on their type. Ordinary toothbrush and paste removes only soft microbial plaque well. However, if the latter is not cleaned in time, then it begins to be mineralized (absorbing calcium salts from saliva) and gradually turns into hard tartar.
