Ultrasonic removal of dental decay with sand-blasting and polishing

Sandblasting and dental cleansing are two procedures of cleaning the teeth, which each patient performs when they come to the dentist. Every individual strives for a perfect, natural and beautiful smile, which makes regular care for teeth necessary. Sometimes personal care for teeth is not enough to achieve a perfect smile, which is why it is well-suited to do dental procedures for cleaning your teeth, where sand-blasting and cleaning of tooth decay play the most important role.

Tooth decay implies hard deposits on teeth resulting from mineralization of plaque, that is those firm white or yellowish deposits formed on the teeth in the area of the connection of teeth and marginal gingiva. You have noticed them in the area of the lower front teeth on the inside. Most often we think that a particular type of food that we eat or a lack of oral hygiene is responsible for the creation of tooth decay, but rarely we look at many daily habits that are unsuitable for the health and appearance of our teeth.

Untreated inflammation of the dental flesh can also be reflected on other structures, and especially on the tooth support device (known as periodontal ligaments that hold the tooth in the bone) and the surrounding bone. In such chronic forms there is a periodontal disease.

Tooth decay contains large amounts of bacteria that produce many acids, which disrupts the structure of the enamel and can lead to dental caries. Over time, it will lead to inflammation of the dental flesh, which becomes swollen, red and painful to the touch.

Removal of tooth decay by an ultrasound device in a dental office is the most effective and completely painless procedure. Sonic devices are still largely used, while the so-called manual removal is no longer practiced. If a patient has developed periodontal disease, the dentist will have to perform scraping and polishing the root of the teeth (curettage) by an ultrasound device.

The patient can be anesthetized so the procedure is absolutely painless. It is recommended to repeat the procedure 2-3 times a year.

Besides the removal of tooth decay, it is also necessary to polish the teeth in order to make their surface smooth and less susceptible to the formation of decay. Unfortunately, we cannot prevent the formation of decay, but with good hygiene and dental check-ups and timely removal, we can keep it under control and affect its formation speed. In this way we will most effectively prevent the onset of periodontal disease and preserve a luminous smile.

Sand-blasting is a method of professional cleaning of dental plaques on the surface (plaque and pigmentation) by high-pressure jet of water and powder. The powder consists of small particles of calcium carbonate or sodium hydrogen carbonate available in several different flavors. The powder particles are round in shape, with no sharp angles, the size of 60-70 microns. It is precisely such a geometric shape that allows the creation of large kinetic energy of particles which, in contact with the tooth, makes a large contact surface. The result of this action is the rapid and effective removal of all soft deposits from the surface of the teeth.

Sand-blasting refers to the removal of yellow and dark spots on teeth caused by the frequent consumption of cigarettes, coffee, tea and other dark drinks that leave stains on the teeth that are unfavorable to patients in the long run. Sand-blasting is performed along with the procedure of cleaning the tooth decay, which is also accumulated in the area of the patient’s teeth and needs to be cleaned at the dentist’s, by regular examinations and visits, at least twice a year. Sand-blasting lasts for 15 minutes,it is non-invasive, it is safe and completely painless procedure. Price of sand-blasting also depends and varies from dentist to dentist.
