DentGroup Total Care includes much more than a dental scaling. In addition to routine scaling, DentGroup Total Care includes airflow (stain cleaning using pressurized powder), polishing, flossing, tongue cleaning, and complete care through flour application to strengthen your teeth, as well as oral hygiene training.
Plaque accumulation is high especially at gums and interdental spaces, as a result of incorrect chewing habits and improper teeth brushing. By time, this plaque turns into calcified tartar and discoloration starts to occur. This type of tartar is the main cause of gingival diseases. Patients are unable to eliminate such plaque and discoloration by themselves. Therefore, tartar buildup gradually increases. Along with tartar buildup comes oral malodor, loose teeth, bleeding gums, and unpleasant brown discoloration in the mouth. In order to avoid these, it is recommended to have total oral care by a dentist at regular intervals.
DentGroup Total Care includes,
Unless deep cleaning of the tartars under the gums or root surface planning is required, anesthesia is not needed during the procedures.
You may feel mild sensitivity in areas with gingival recession or inflammation.
Bleeding occurs in patients with edematous and inflamed gums, but it is nothing to be feared and does not continue after the procedures are completed. After cleaning, inflammation gradually reduces and healthy, pink-colored, and firm look of the gums is restored.
The procedures take between 30-45 minutes on average. In cases where tartar density is high and under-gum procedures are needed, a second session takes place. After all procedures are completed, a check-up is made.
Misuse of ultrasonic cleaners causes micron-level scratches on the teeth. This causes the teeth to discolor again in a short span of time. If devices are operated correctly and polished afterwards, you should get DentGroup Total Care regularly.
The density of plaque and tartar buildup varies depending on the formation of the teeth, and saliva structure, as well as brushing and eating habits. DentGroup Total Care is done if the dentist deems it necessary during the 6-month checkup.
Unless it is due to a systemic disease, DentGroup Total Care can treat bleeding and oral malodor caused by gum problems.
The fluor gel reacts with the crystals in the enamel layer of the teeth and triggers the formation of fluorapatite crystals, which are more resistant to decay and prevent sensitivity. Thus, the texture of the enamel becomes more transparent, shiny, and durable.
The teeth are dried by blowing air and placed in special foam trays into which 5 ml of 1.23% APF gel is placed, the tray is removed after 4 minutes at most, and the remainder of the gel is washed away. The patient is asked not to rinse their mouth for 30 minutes.
No harm caused by swallowing Airflow powder has been observed, nevertheless, the risk of the patient swallowing the powder is minimized by using dual saliva ejectors.
No, there is not an age limit for this application. It can also be superficially applied to milk teeth.
The gums are more hyperemic and edematous during pregnancy due to hormones. Therefore, the amount of bleeding may be more than usual, however, it is not a problem. Total Care can be easily performed, preferably in the second trimester of the pregnancy.
Teeth sensitivity can be seen after most dental scaling procedures, but this does not occur with DentGroup Total Care. The applied fluorine gel eliminates teeth sensitivity and leaves a fresh feeling in the mouth.
It absolutely does not. During the procedure, fillings and crowns are polished as well.
Once the discoloration and tartars are eliminated a lighter color will surely be achieved, however, it will not be lighter than the original color of the teeth. In order to achieve a lighter teeth color, you need to have your teeth bleached.
It is a dental cleaning procedure with pressurized powder that is applied only to the front surface of the teeth, which includes airflow and tooth polishing and lasts for 15 minutes.
It is recommended for patients with less time on their hands and those undergoing orthodontic treatments.
The tongue is made up of papillary, which is an excellent surface for bacteria buildup. It is the most neglected part of the mouth to clean. The tongue is brushed for about 10 seconds with low-speed rotary brushes. It is not an application that causes discomfort, and the patient is made aware of the importance of cleaning the tongue.
