Ultrasonic Scaling

Ultrasonic Scaling

The oral hygiene treatments are mainly preventive, including scaling, cleaning teeth and treating inflamed gums. Besides the treatments, we offer our patients oral hygiene consultation as well.

Dental prevention means to avoid pathological process in the oral cavity and in the teeth, and to slow down the existing damaging process. The aim of the preventing treatment is to avoid dental decay and gingivitis. These are considered to be endemic diseases in Hungary, as the majority of the population is involved in them.

Oral hygiene treatments are mostly removing plaque and tartar. What are the typical symptoms? First of all, bleeding gums, bad taste in mouth and unpleasant breath. If your gum started to bleed, there must be a problem behind it, so we strongly recommend visiting our dentist as soon as you notice it.

The tartar is formed through calcification of the plaque. It contains high amount of bacteria, which can cause bleeding gums, inflammation, and finally even bone destruction. If it is far gone, the teeth may become so loose, that they even can fall out.


During the treatment the ultrasonic equipment removes the built-up plaque, discoloration and tartar from the surface of the teeth while washing and cooling the teeth with water. The amount of the tartar is individually very different, that is why our dentists recommend repeating the treatment regularly in certain periods.


In ideal case it is advised at least every six months, but there are patients who need it more frequently. The treatment is really important, but not enough. The patient must pay attention to the appropriate dental care: it is important to change the toothbrush every 2-3 months (we prefer to use electric toothbrush), to use dental floss and toothpaste of high quality.


Do not hesitate to ask for the opinion and help of our dentists if you are uncertain about the proper dental care.
