Conservative dentistry
The patient should see a dentist for a check-up every 6 months. At the check-up we recommend hygienist treatment – scaling, sandblasting and fluoridation.
Radiographic examination allows for the precise diagnosis of dental cavities. At Scandinavian Clinic we recommend taking a radiographic image of your teeth before each comprehensive dental treatment.
The task of an anaesthetic is to block the sensation of pain. The needle used to administer the anaesthetic is very thin, and the prick at precise application is barely noticeable. Patients who are afraid of pain during injection may at Scandinavian Clinic additionally obtain surface anaesthesia. Before the anaesthetic is applied, a locally administered gel is used in order to minimise the sensation of pain.
The choice of filling is at the discretion of the doctor who will assess which one is best for a specific tooth and cavity.
Root canal treatment
Contemporary methods of root canal therapy do not cause discolouration in most cases. Tooth discolouration is possible, however, as the root canal therapy removes the tooth pulp (the alive part of a tooth which transmits nutrients to the tissues), which may cause darkening of the tooth. Patients wanting to improve the aesthetics of their teeth may ask us to make suggestions related to whitening, fitting of a prosthetic crown or placing a veneer.
The success rate of primary root canal treatment is estimated at 96%. Its result is the long-term preservation of healthy teeth. It does not mean, however, that after treatment has been completed you may stop taking care of your teeth. On the contrary – we should be even more committed to prophylaxis and hygiene of the oral cavity. It is good to remember that without a proper prosthetic restoration the success rate of treatment is reduced even by 40%.
An alternative to root canal treatment does not yet exist. It is the only method allowing for the preservation of natural teeth without the need for their extraction and implant therapy.
Tooth whitening
A professionally performed teeth whitening procedure at the dental practice should not affect their condition.
Whitening of teeth is not painful. Following the procedure, the patient may experience sensitivity which will last approximately for a week.
Prosthetics
Adaptation to the prosthesis requires some time. It may take from a few days to 2-3 weeks. It is worth being patient and not being discouraged by initial difficulties. In order to facilitate adaptation to a new situation you may take exercises improving the work of muscles or read aloud.
No, it is not. Correcting prostheses on your own may damage the restoration and lead to damage of oral cavity tissues.
The prosthesis should be replaced approximately every 5 years. Due to bone shrinkage under the plate of the prosthesis, over time it may become less stable.
Surgery
Eating and drinking for 2 hours after tooth extraction is not allowed. After the procedure we recommend following a semi-liquid diet, e.g. yogurts, dairy products. One should also avoid smoking as well as the consumption of spicy and hot food.
You should brush your teeth, even on the day of the procedure, bypassing only the space after the extracted tooth so as not to disturb the clotting. You should continue doing so until the wound is healed.
In case of children, at the tooth extraction or placing a filling, we use a minimally invasive computer anaesthesia.
Radiology
At Scandinavian Clinic we use a state-of-the-art equipment which allows us to minimize doses of radiation received by a patient. Certainly, caution should be taken and this method should not be used unnecessarily. The decision to have an X-ray examination is made by a doctor who previously collects information about the patient's state of health.
It is accepted that information contained in a panoramic X-ray is valid for approximately 6 months. A decision to perform a new X-ray is taken by a doctor individually for each patient.
In order to perform a pantomographic examination the patient needs to be referred by the attending doctor.
Implantology
Missing teeth is not only an aesthetic problem. The removal of a tooth affects the occlusion as the teeth tend to move towards the free space. Crooked and inclined teeth become overloaded, wear out faster and become more susceptible to dental caries and periodontal diseases. Problems with grinding food and gradual bone atrophy in the place after tooth extraction are the consequences of missing teeth. The process of atrophy is most intensive in the first year after the tooth loss (about 60%) and its intensity increases in the case of the lack of impulsation, i.e. pressure on the bones. Additionally, the risk of gastrointestinal diseases is increased. This is why missing teeth need to replaced as soon as possible.
After the procedure of implant grafting a patient should take particular care of the oral cavity hygiene. During the appointment, Scandinavian Clinic specialists will instruct you on how to take care of your implanted teeth and on the recommended frequency of check-up appointments.
Prophylaxis
Tartar originates from the accumulation of food debris, bacteria and calcified plaque on the surface of teeth. The problem may be exacerbated by improper oral hygiene, genetic conditions, smoking, drinking large amounts of coffee and tea, defects of occlusion, bad quality dental restorations and improper diet.
Fluoridation of teeth strengthens the enamel and protects teeth from the operation of acids and bacteria. Therefore, there is sense in fluoridation, both in children and adults.
Professionally conducted scaling procedure does not damage the enamel of teeth. After having completed the procedure a short-term sensitivity may occur, which can be alleviated by fluoridation or using pastes and rinses for sensitive teeth.
The hygienist procedure is dedicated to all patients who wish to enjoy healthy and aesthetically looking teeth. The procedure is particularly recommended to those persons who smoke, drink coffee, tea, red wine or their diet contains highly colouring food. It is also advisable to patients with orthodontic braces as well as persons who decide to undergo the teeth whitening procedure.
Periodontology
Most often, the problem begins with reddening of the gums and a little bleeding during brushing. It is usually the first symptom of gum inflammation. Other distressing symptoms include bad breath as well as visible plaque and tartar on the teeth. Further progress of the disease may lead to gum recession and revealing of teeth necks. The teeth become sensitive to cold and hot food and ultimately begin to wobble. These signs may indicate the development of periodontitis. One should remember that prophylactic procedures reducing the risk of periodontitis include scaling. If you smoke, remember that smoking covers the symptoms of gum disease. Nicotine limits the blood supply to the gums, so bleeding of the gums does not occur. Unfortunately, overlooking early symptoms of gum disease can lead to its development. People who smoke should then visit their dentist for dental check-up more often.
Supragingival scaling involves the removal of tartar formed on the surface of tooth crowns and subgingival scaling the removal of tartar deposits accumulated under the gums.
No, you are not. Brushing, flossing and rinsing of teeth are basic oral care activities which allow for the maintenance of healthy teeth and gums. Try changing your toothbrush or mouthwash. If the problem persists, come for a dental check-up at Scandinavian Clinic.
