Good oral hygiene does not guarantee that your teeth won’t experience some problems in the future. The creation of solid deposits is influenced by many factors, such as the composition of saliva, irregular tooth position, as well as some anomalies that result from the discordance of the attached gums and surrounding mucosa. Make sure you get in touch with us and get the right help you need.
Dental plaque plays a key role in the formation of dental calculus.
Dental plaque is a soft, bacterial lining on the teeth, which is colorless and whose mineralization causes dental calculus. – The mineralization process takes place very quickly, from the first to the fourteenth day from the formation of plaque on the teeth. In the mineralization process, the primary importance is saliva composition. People whose sputum have higher concentrations of calcium, phosphorus and other minerals are more susceptible to dental calcification.
Faster deposition of calcium and other minerals on the teeth, contributes to changes in the pH of the saliva, which is due to the increase in its acidity. Changes in the salivary pH value depends primarily on oral hygiene, the existence of systemic diseases, but also on the diet.
Foods rich in carbohydrates, especially sucrose, as well as soft and mushy foods contribute to the appearance of stones and caries, so they should be avoided, especially between meals. In addition to poor diet, the formation of dental plaque comes from smoking.
To keep the teeth healthy, regular visits to the dentist are necessary, at least twice a year. Because its non-removal may lead to the development of inflammation in the mouth and the development of caries.
The dental plaque mechanically presses the gum and causes a circulatory disorder, which leads to the occurrence of inflammatory processes on the teeth. Apart from causing inflammation of the gums, the plaque is the first and most important factor that causes the formation of periodontal pockets and diseases of the gums.
You can prevent the onset of dental plaque by daily washing of teeth at least twice a day. Dentists recommend that you use soft brushes that have a greater number of fibers and allow better cleaning of your teeth. If you have sensitive gums, and the food is more often deposited, choose a good toothpaste and do not use those that contain sulphates. It also helps interdental brushes, and mouthwash liquids that affect plaque bacteria and prevent the formation of new deposits.
There are no ways in which patients can remove these deposits by themselves. Their task is to maintain good oral hygiene and proper diet, primarily to prevent the occurrence of dental calculus. – When dental calculus has already occurred, it is necessary to remove it using hand instruments or ultrasound instruments, or a combination of these two methods.
Therefore, regularly visit your dentist and take a good care of your teeth.
