How do preventive examinations work
An important source of information for your dentist is the orthopantomogram (OTG), which is an X-ray of the jaws, teeth, jaw joints, maxillary sinuses and nasal cavity. At DENT MEDICO, we use the cutting-edge Gendex panoramic 3D X-ray, which allows doctors to establish anatomically accurate treatment plans, successfully select surgical procedures, and generally improve the care of your healthy and beautiful teeth. Orthopantomography should be performed regularly as a preventive measure; our doctors typically choose a frequency of once every two years.
The preventive examination itself in the office takes place in a comfortable chair, which is part of a German-made KaVo dental kit. The chair allows comfortable sitting and dismounting and perfect positioning. The doctor or dentist will ask you about your current condition and any difficulties and perform a thorough examination of all teeth and gum conditions. All of our offices have their own intraoral digital x-ray with vision and an oral camera, allowing you to view the results of your dental procedure in real-time on a monitor that is part of the dental suite.
If the doctor encounters a problem in the form of tooth decay during the examination, it needs to be removed. At the clinic, we set aside enough time for each treatment, so you always have the option to request a sedative at the procedure. We use state-of-the-art instruments for the procedures, which are equipped with light elements and whose ergonomics allow the dentist to work in maximum comfort and with maximum precision.
During the preventive examination, the dentist will also give you instructions on the proper follow-up care for your teeth and gums, evaluate your previous cooperation with the dental hygienists and, if necessary, refer you for further treatment. If the condition of your teeth requires dentures, braces or, for example, specialised treatment for periodontal disease, your dentist will discuss the necessary steps with you. At our clinic, we are able to provide all the dental care you need under one roof.
Dental hygiene and home preventive care
Regular consultations with a dental hygienist are an essential part of good dental care and our hygienists, like our doctors, are top professionals in their field. During your treatment, your hygienist will remove tartar, plaque and pigmentation. Alternatively, she may perform teeth whitening if the condition of your teeth allows it. The hygienist will show you how to brush your teeth properly and recommend appropriate dental appliances and products. Further preventive care is then up to you. You need to follow daily habits and take care of your teeth and gums with the right techniques. Dental hygienists assess the state of your dental hygiene with the so-called PBI index, which shows the level of inflammation around the tooth. Clients who take good care of their teeth and maintain a low PBI score are given extra guarantees at our clinic.
