At Smile Clinic Slovakia we want to make sure you have a healthy, clean smile and part of the process is to have a dental hygiene, dental cleaning, dental polishing, whatever you are familiar term you use twice a year. We speak English as well as Slovak so ex-pats have no fear they will be miss understood.
Let’s face it, not many of us like going to the dentist. So, at Smile Clinic Slovakia we want to make sure you feel as comfortable as possible.
Our experienced and efficient dentists and hygienists will put you at ease so you feel good about having your yearly dental hygiene, cleaning or polishing, in a pain free environment.
Smile Clinic recommends you have your teeth cleaned professionally at least twice per year. Professional cleaning includes tooth scaling (the removal of plaque and tarter) from teeth which causes tooth decay and bad breath.
After your teeth are cleaned of plaque and tarter, our dental hygienist will provide a tooth polishing. At Smile Clinic we use rubber cups or prophy cups for polishing, along with polishing paste, and prophylactic paste containing fluoride. Using a prophylactic paste with fluoride will help protect the teeth and reduce plaque in between cleanings/polishing.
Our dental hygienist will also show patients how to brush and floss teeth and we recommend brushing teeth between meals. Cutting down on plaque will reduce tooth decay and severe gum disease which causes at least one-third of adult tooth loss.
And…to make sure you don’t feel the pain in your pocket book as well, we offer first time patients a VIP dental hygiene treatment for only €50 (normally €65) plus a free consultation! No worries on hidden costs, either. We will go through all treatment costs with you up front before any procedure, ensuring you have all the facts and know the price.
A normal cleaning/polishing will take 45 minutes for €50…
- Teeth cleaning/scraping of plaque and tarter and removing of stains from coffee and tea, using hand-instruments and ultra-sonic scaler
- Teeth polishing with polishing and prophylactic paste with fluoride
- Instruction on how to brush, and floss
For an additional cost of €20 you can have an “Air flow” treatment. Air Flow is a stain blasting material using water, air and powder to remove plaque, tarter and stains more efficiently. It also is used to get into those “hard-to-reach” places below the gum line called “pockets” that can’t always be reached by scraping. Air flow is ideal for those who suffer from sensitive teeth.
