Guided biofilm therapy®

(GBT)

The modern approach to perfectly clean teeth and healthy gums is called Guided biofilm therapy – an innovation from the Swiss leader in the prevention of periodontal diseases EMS. It is harmless, effective and gentle on teeth, soft tissues, implants and fillings. What are the steps?

In patients with periodontal disease and deep gingival pockets, the therapy also includes AirFlow Perio, which allows cleaning and polishing of hard-to-reach and invisible areas under the gums. The cleaning ends with the removal of the remaining tartar, including that under the gums – with an ultrasound machine and, if necessary, with Mini Gracey curettes.

The last, but not least, element of GBT is the follow-up visits of our patients. We assess the condition of the gums and teeth, as well as the individual satisfaction of the patient.

The accumulation of plaque and tartar around the teeth and under the gums can cause a cascade of dental problems such as caries, gingivitis, bone loss, halitosis (bad breath) and eventually tooth loss. Routine GBT in our practice provides the necessary care so that you can enjoy exceptional oral health

Teeth whitening

Let’s bring back the brilliance of your smile! Our whitening is easy and non-invasive and you can successfully remove years of stains and color from your teeth with a one-hour treatment. Do you have sensitive teeth or do you just prefer whitening in the comfort of your home? We will make special silicone splints for whitening to measure your teeth, which you can use at home. Whatever your choice, our whitening always starts with Guided Biofilm therapy® for a brilliant and long-lasting result.

 

We take your smile seriously and therefore we will choose the most gentle and appropriate whitening method especially for you. Bleaching in the office or at home, always starts with Airflow EMS. It removes plaque and external stains on the teeth. Thus, they are perfectly clean and ready for the subsequent deeper whitening.

If you choose in-office whitening, we will monitor your comfort and sensitivity during the procedure. Should you choose at-home bleaching, we will make individual whitening trays for you to use along with a professional product, selected for your needs. In case you are satisfied with the result achieved with the polishing with EMS Airflow and you only want additional refreshment your pearly whites, we are ready to recommend you some favorite whitening toothpastes that are not abrasive and do not harm the enamel.

White spot removal

Having some white spots on your teeth bothers you? Maybe they have been there all your life or they appeared after removing braces. White spots have different origin, but what they have in common is the low mineral content in the enamel and hence the lack of shine. ICON infiltration fills this gap by restoring the natural color of the enamel. ICON treatment is a revolutionary and painless way to remove these annoying white spots without drilling and filling, and within an hour. This treatment is also suitable for initial approximal cavities.

Our enamel is made up of 96% minerals, arranged in crystals. That’s why it looks shiny and transparent. White spots may have different origins, but what they have in common is the low mineral content and thus the lack of crystals – that is why they are characterized also by a lack of shine. Remineralization is the process of returning minerals back to the tooth structure to make healthy enamel super resistant, or to strengthen weakened enamel. Modern dentistry offers various protocols for painless and non-surgical treatment through remineralization. It is most effective soon after the tooth erupts, because that is the period of the most pronounced mineral exchange. As the teeth age and mature, their metabolism slows down. It is therefore important to consult a dentist as soon as white spots are found.

White spots can date back to childhood. Here are the most common reasons for their presence:

– Trauma or inflammation around the apical part of a primary tooth can damage the tooth germ of a permanent tooth. After its eruption, a singular white or yellowish spot could be found in the middle or incisal part of the crown. This condition is called Turner’s dysplasia.

– A common disease of a child between the ages of 1 and 3 can disrupt the function of the enamel-forming cells. When the first permanent molars and incisors erupt, white or yellowish spots could be found. One or more incisors or molars may be affected. This condition is called molar-incisor hypomineralization and it’s an expression of disturbed enamel mineralization.

– Excessive consumption of fluoride can also cause the appearance of light white spots to larger white to brown areas on the surfaces of permanent teeth, and the spots are visible with their eruption. The condition is called fluorosis.

– Loss of minerals after tooth eruption due to initial caries is the most common cause of white spots, especially in patients with braces. The good news is that you can stop tooth decay and restore the shine and health of your enamel through remineralization or ICON infiltration.

Treatment of hypersensitivity

Treatment of hypersensitivity

Should you suffer from chronic tooth sensitivity, worry not – at Dente we know how to help. During your consultation we will find the cause of the discomfort. After diagnosing the problem, we will discuss treatment options together. At Dente we have a wide range of means for the treatment of hypersensitivity – in-office or at home.

Caries treatment

Dental caries can develop on different tooth surfaces of teeth and can vary in depth. We believe in the individual approach in the choice of tools and materials for its treatment. Some initial carious spots can be treated without drilling – by remineralization or ICON infiltration.

We treat advanced cavities with care for your comfort – pain control is at the heart of our practice. We use contemporary saliva isolation protocols such as the rubber dam. The fillings we offer are of the highest class – in terms of aesthetics and mechanical properties. They can be based on a light-cured resin (composite), ceramics (ormocer) or actively releasing minerals to the teeth (glass ionomer and compomer). 

Bonding

Maybe you don’t like the shape of your front teeth or you have a lot of fillings on them? Bonding is a direct build-up or direct veneer, in which high-class composite material is added without unnecessary drilling of the teeth. Bonding makes adjustments to the shape, length and color of teeth. The method is minimally invasive, without removal of any hard tooth tissue and is done in one visit.

Rubber dam isolation

No matter how thoroughly you clean your teeth and mouth, some bacteria always remains. This is usually not a problem, but if you receive dental treatment that reveals the inside of the tooth, bacteria can invade the open area. We can help prevent infection by isolating the tooth, being treated, with a dental instrument known as the rubber dam.

The rubber dam is a protective canvas with a hole that we put on the tooth during treatment. The opening allows us to isolate the treatment area around the tooth. In this way we provide a clean environment for work, and you relax. Extremely effective and useful in patients with a pronounced nausea reflex.

Restoring severely compromised teeth

Heavily damaged or weakened teeth also deserve a chance. We do not give up easily and we will do our best to preserve your natural tooth – whether it has been broken or severely decayed. Some of the possibilities include direct or indirect restorations, or dental core build-up. It can be done by placing an aesthetic fiber post, a metal post or one, made individually by a dental technician.

Night guards

(splints for bruxism)

If you grind your teeth while you sleep, wearing a night guard can help. It evens out the pressure on the jaws and creates a physical barrier between the upper and lower teeth to protect them from further damage. The night guard also reduces any grinding noises you make at night.

For its production we will take an impression from your dentition. The bite splint is made of hard silicone material and fits perfectly on your upper or lower teeth.

Often the main cause of teeth grinding is related to stress, which is why it is important to relax and get a good night’s sleep. There are a number of things that help you relax before bed, such as yoga, reading, massage, taking a hot shower or listening to music. If the main cause of your bruxism is stress or anxiety, then consulting a therapist about cognitive behavioral therapy may be recommended.

Break the habit

There are a few techniques, designed to break the habit of grinding your teeth. If you’re awake when you’re grinding or clenching your teeth, it may be helpful to write down how often you do it each day. Note when you are more likely to do so and why – for example, when you are concentrated or under stress. If you are aware of your habit, it will be easier to give up. For example, when you feel yourself clenching your teeth, you can open your jaw slightly or gently place your tongue between your upper and lower teeth.

Treatment and prevention of dental problems

Regular dental check-ups are important so that all problems caused by bruxism can be treated as quickly as possible and subsequent damage can be prevented. Treating dental problems, such as misaligned, broken, or missing teeth, could reshape the chewing surface of teeth and stop you from grinding.

Medicaments

Self-medication is not usually recommended to treat bruxism. Some medicines – non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, vitamins and supplements, can help relieve pain or swelling around the jaw caused by grinding.

Botulinum therapy

The application of botulinum toxin (Botox) in the masticatory muscles relaxes them and prevents excessive grinding. The therapy is effective, facial aesthetics remain unchanged, and the headache in the morning disappears.
