Professional Dental Cleaning – What Is It?
Professional dental cleaning involves the removal of pigmented plaque and tartar from hard-to-reach areas (gaps between teeth, chewing surfaces, and inner surfaces). In these regions, soft plaque solidifies over time and needs to be removed professionally. This significantly reduces the risk of developing cavities, gum inflammation, and other oral cavity diseases.
Technologies we employ:
- Air Flow: This apparatus delivers a stream of water with fine abrasive particles, breaking down and rinsing away plaque.
- Ultrasonic: This device has a nozzle producing high-frequency vibrations that chip away hardened tartar.
- Laser Cleaning: The laser beam dries and fractures the tartar, with the added benefit of bacterial elimination.
Poor hygiene leads to the onset of cavities, gum pockets, infections, inflammation, and other diseases. Their prevalence worldwide is very high. According to research findings, oral cavity inflammation may increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

We recommend preventive check-ups and dental cleanings every 6 months. If you have veneers, crowns, Invisalign caps, or braces, consultations should be scheduled every 3-4 months.
During consultations, we conduct an examination, assessing the quality of oral hygiene:
- Presence of plaque or tartar on the enamel – we perform a professional dental cleaning.
- If the enamel is clean, we schedule your next preventive check-up.
What Should I Expect During Professional Cleaning?
- Procedure Duration
The cleaning typically takes 40 to 60 minutes. In cases of heavy buildup, two sessions may be required.
- Sensations During the Procedure
The hygienist performs the dental cleaning gently, avoiding irritation to the mucous membrane. If the patient experiences discomfort, the dentist administers local anesthesia.
- Results After the Procedure
The enamel becomes clean and uniformly colored. Pigmented spots, yellowness, and discolorations disappear, revealing a natural shine.
The removal of pigmented plaque results in the enamel becoming 1-2 shades lighter. If you desire a smile 6-8 shades brighter, we recommend looking into our teeth whitening procedure.
Indications and Contraindications
- Presence of white plaque
- Unpleasant breath odor
- Bleeding gums
- Yellowing teeth or spots
- Hardened tartar near the gums
- Planned complex procedures (implants, prosthetics)
- Need for preventive dental cleaning
- Severe gum inflammation
- Advanced cavities
- Exacerbation of infectious diseases
- Bronchial asthma or other respiratory issues
- Presence of a pacemaker
The doctor will prescribe treatment for gum inflammation, cavities, or infectious diseases. After such preparation, dental cleaning can be performed without the risk of complications.
If you have asthma or respiratory issues, the use of the Air Flow device is not safe. It may trigger an attack during the procedure. We conduct the hygiene procedure using a safer method – ultrasonic cleaning.
If a pacemaker is installed, it is crucial to inform the doctor. The ultrasound device can interfere with the device’s operation. In this case, we perform dental cleaning using the Air Flow device.
Stages of Professional Dental Cleaning
Dental cleaning consists of several steps:
The doctor assesses the oral cavity’s condition, checks for contraindications, and prescribes treatment if there is cavities or gum inflammation. If no additional treatment is needed, the doctor selects the method of dental cleaning. Then, a solution is applied to the enamel to highlight plaque and calculus.
The specialist cleans the enamel using the chosen method, usually performing comprehensive hygiene:
- Ultrasonic cleaning: The device with an ultrasonic nozzle (scaler) produces high-frequency vibrations (20-50 kHz) to gradually break down hardened deposits. Simultaneously, the nozzle delivers a water and antiseptic solution under pressure, removing the tartar.
- Air Flow: The device releases a stream of water, compressed air, and abrasive particles under pressure, gently removing remaining debris.
The hygienist smoothens the surfaces, creating a sleek finish. This reduces the formation of new plaque. For polishing, the doctor uses two tools: an abrasive strip for interdental spaces and a brush with abrasive paste for the external and internal tooth surfaces.
The specialist dries the enamel and applies a fluoride-containing compound, strengthening dental tissues and reducing the risk of cavities.
After the cleaning procedure, we provide recommendations for oral care.
