Oral Hygiene

Oral Hygiene is a specialist field of MALO CLINIC aimed at the diagnosis, prevention and therapy of oral diseases, playing a decisive role in the maintenance of treatments carried out in other specialist areas. In this context, there is also an education element which, by teaching and demonstrating specific techniques, contributes to an improvement in oral health.

Good oral hygiene is a factor which is decisive for the prevention of the majority of diseases which affect oral health, being characterised by the correct elimination of food residues, and not allowing a series of bacteria to become affixed to the teeth and gums which, if not removed, will give rise to the formation of bacterial plaque and tartar, the main causes of caries and periodontal diseases.

For correct prevention and maintenance, visits to the oral hygienist must be regular (at least every 6 months) and the daily care recommended by the doctor/hygienist must be followed. This care includes correct brushing (at least twice a day), the use of dental floss (at least once a day, preferably at night) and the use of elixirs/mouthwashes.

If you suffer from symptoms like constant bleeding or pain in the gums during brushing, bad breath and sensitivity, book an appointment with your dentist/hygienist.

Maintenance of Treatments Executed

Regular trips to Oral Hygiene appointments are vital for maintaining oral health and the integrity of the treatments carried out at MALO CLINIC. During the appointment, implants, crowns, bridges, fixed prostheses over natural teeth or implants, as well as restorations, orthodontic braces and endodontics treatments are evaluated so as to achieve an early diagnosis of any complication. All the preventive and therapeutic procedures carried out during these appointments contribute to the longevity of these treatments.

Scaling

Treatment which consists of the removal of bacterial plaque and tartar from the dental surfaces using an ultrasonic equipment. The objective is the elimination of the factors responsible for the majority of gum and teeth problems.

Application of Fluoride

Procedure used for the prevention of caries and the reduction of tooth sensitivity, applying a gel to the teeth surfaces with a high concentration of fluoride. This chemical compound acts on the dental enamel, remineralizing it and strengthening its structure.

Application of Sealants

Treatment for the prevention of caries whereby a fluid resin is applied to the chewing surfaces of the teeth and which, after photopolymerization (incidence of a blue led light) hardens, forming a surface which is smoother and easier to hygienise.
