DentGroup Total Care includes much more than 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 flouride application to strengthen your enamel, as well as providing 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 gum tissue or root surface planing is required, anesthesia will not be 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 treatment takes between 30-45 minutes on average. In cases where tartar density is high and subgingival procedures are needed, a second session will be required. After all the procedures are completed, a short follow-up session is scheduled to check the outcome.
Misuse of ultrasonic cleaners causes micron-level scratches on the teeth. This causes the teeth to discolor again in a short span of time. As long as devices are operated correctly and the teeth are polished afterwards, DentGroup Total Care is a treatment that should be considered every 6 months for your oral and dental health.
The density of plaque and tartar build-up varies depending on the formation of the teeth, and saliva composition, as well as brushing and eating habits of the patient. 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 fluoride 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. Then, 5 ml of 1.23% APF gel is placed in special foam trays and the tray is removed after 4 minutes at most. The gel residue is washed away. The patient is asked not to rinse their mouth for 30 minutes.
No kind of harm has been observed due to 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 may be observed after most dental scaling procedures, but this does not occur with DentGroup Total Care. The fluoride 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 your teeth. In order to achieve a whiter 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 tissue, which is an excellent surface for bacteria build-up. 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.
