ROUTINE DENTAL CHECK-UP
Routine dental check-ups are essential for good oral hygiene and are the best way to detect problems at their earliest stages. Early detection and treatment prevent unnecessary discomfort, save time and money. Quick Smile Team recommends check-ups every six months.
Dental care is the foundation of dentistry. Quick Smile team strongly believe in a preventive approach to dental care. The promotion of health through preventive and routine hygiene care is the core of our practice. Regular check-ups enable us to monitor your oral health and detect potential problems as soon as they emerge.
PROFESSIONAL TEETH CLEANING AND PLAQUE REMOVAL
The removal of dental plaque is a preventive dental procedure that foresees the removal of tooth deposits and pigmentation caused by food, drinks and/or smoking.professional dental plaque removal is made with ultrasonic instruments containing water jet fluoride paste brushing, polishing and sandblasting and provides a dazzling finish to a beautiful smile. The therapeutic procedure of the dental plaque removal is painless and therefore recommended both as a preventive and healing method in dental care, gum disease and periodontitis.
Cavity is the most common disease in dentistry. It is a persistent chronic disease of hard dental tissues, progressing until it destroys the entire tooth. Cavity is a consequence of weak oral hygiene that leads to development of bacteria in the mouth. Cavity first attacks the tooth surface, the enamel, and if not treated on time, it quickly progresses into the inner layer of the tooth, which is called dentin.
Unlike the enamel, the dentin is less mineralised and hence less resistant to acid formation. Once the acid enters dentin, caries drastically accelerates its progression. Pain is felt only when the tooth is significantly damaged.
The aim of the cavity therapy is the removal of the tooth tissue infected with bacteria and reconstruction of tooth with fillings materials. The cavity treatments can be provided with local anaesthetic, That makes the procedure completely painless.
Composite fillings, commonly known as “white” fillings, are a contemporary aesthetic standard in the dental restauration treatment. Composite tooth materials perfectly mimics the natural look of a tooth. Both its colour and transparency match tooth aesthetics, whereas its solid mechanical properties and firmness support the tooth function. By using layering technique, we replace the lost part of a tooth with composite. The process is finalised with bite adjusting and polishing of the filling.
ENDODONTICS – ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
If cavity penetrates all the way to the dental nerve (pulp), it results in extremely strong pulsating pain and an endodontic (root canal) treatment is required.
The purpose of endodontics is to avoid a tooth extraction by removing the dental nerve from the root canal, and filling the canal with a special material that stops the penetration of bacteria. It allows the tissue around the root to remain healthy, so that the tooth, even without a nerve, remains functionally and aesthetically operating.
Even when cavity penetrates all the way to the dental nerve causing pulpitis (inflammation of the dental nerve) we do everything to save your tooth. The endodontic treatment consists of the complete removal of the infected pulp tissue and the cleaning of root canals by hand or, more frequently, by mechanical techniques of closing the passage for bacteria. The success of therapy is confirmed with an X-Ray and therapy result controlled every six months.
MECHANICAL ROOT CANAL TREATMENT
Mechanical root canal treatment uses modern dental technology that increases the success of root canal healing and shortens the therapy procedure. There are several mechanical root canal systems available on the market, and Quick Smile team use Reciproc. Mechanical root canal assistance makes the root canal treatment faster, thorough and more efficient than manual treatment, and thus much more comfortable for a patient.
REVISION OF ROOT CANAL FILLING
Sometimes, after an unsuccessful endodontic treatment, a patient comes to us for a revision of the root canal filling. Revision of previous root canal treatment is a procedure of the filling removal from the root canal, followed by the removal of the microorganisms in the canal.
Strong oral health foundation begins early. Beginning dental appointments at a young age helps to ensure your child’s mouth and gums are healthy and their teeth develop properly.
When to Book Your Child’s First Dental Visit:
Once your child’s primary teeth start coming through, it’s time to book their first dental visit. Children’s first teeth generally start coming in around six months of age. We encourage parents to schedule their child’s first visit to our dental practice between six months and one year.
At six months old, a first dental visit may seem premature, but these visits can provide many benefits for your child’s teeth long into the future. We can advise parents on how to clean their children’s teeth as they come in, offer preventative care and treat any dental issues.
In addition to the oral health benefits, early dental visits help kids feel more comfortable at our dental practice.
Our objective for this first dental visit is to make it as easy and positive for your child as possible. When a child visits our dental practice for the first time, they may feel anxious and afraid. We want them to feel comfortable before they walk through our door. This ensures more co-operation during the exam and less stress to them on future visits.
A FEW PRACTICAL TIPS:
1. Teeth should be brushed twice a day (morning and evening) with light circular motions.
2. A toothbrush with a small head and soft bristles is a good choice.
3. The amount of toothpaste used for brushing should be adjusted to the child’s age, and match the pea size.
4. As the area for easy bacteria accumulation, the line between the tooth and the gums should be well cleaned, removing food deposits using circular motions.
5. Children need supervision and help with teeth brushing until the school age, and they can brush them completely independently afterwards.
6. Teeth brushing can become an easy habit if it becomes a pleasant and fun ritual for the child.
WHAT CAN WE DO TO HELP YOUR CHILD?
The goal of paediatric dentistry is to raise PARENT’S awareness about the importance of good deciduous (BABY) teeth care. If CAVITY appears in deciduous teeth, bacteria start to accumulate in the MOUTH and the permanent teeth erupt in a potentially cariogenic environment. That is why we treat deciduous teeth. Healthy deciduous teeth ensure good nutrition of a child, enable proper speech and pronunciation, and ensure the correct growth and development of the jaw. A complete set of healthy teeth embellishes the face and adds to the child’s appropriate psychological development. However, if caries occurs in a deciduous tooth, it should be removed before it progresses to the nerve, and the tooth should be treated with a filling. Parental education is also important for the prevention of orthodontic anomalies. Parents should be informed about bad chewing habits, breathing through the mouth, pacifier or finger sucking since they all affect the normal growth and development of the face and the jaw. If neglected, these factors can change the position of teeth in dental arches and require orthodontic therapy.
PREVENTIVE FISSURE SEALING
The preventive dental fissure sealing is a standard procedure of fissure protection in paediatric dentistry, i.e., of a young permanent tooth pit, which prevents plaque retention and bacteria penetration that can cause dental caries. The procedure is performed after the tooth eruption and it is simple and painless. The pits of young permanent teeth are filled with a special material that creates a smooth surface and decreases the accumulation of plaque and bacteria that destroy tooth enamel, causing dental caries.
TOOTH INJURIES IN CHILDHOOD
In paediatric dentistry, children with deciduous teeth aged two to four, and children with permanent teeth aged seven to ten are considered at the risk of tooth injury.
At this age children have a strong need for exploring, whereas they have relatively underdeveloped and uncoordinated motor skills. They are still unable to assess danger and thus are more prone to the injuries and fractures of the crown or the root, or even a complete knocking out of the upper front teeth, which are very common injuries.
In the case of an avulsion tooth (knocked out), the parent should gently push the knocked-out tooth to its bed and immediately take the child to a dentist.
Sports such as ice hockey, skiing, skating, karate, etc. require a preventive dental shield (protective splint) that can be made in our clinic.
A series of surgical procedures performed in dentistry is commonly called “oral surgery”. All oral surgery procedures are directed at improving oral anatomical or biological disadvantages in a patient.
Some of the most common oral surgery procedures are:
• Tooth extraction
• Surgical removal of wisdom teeth and residual roots
• Sinus lifting or ridge levelling procedures for dental implant placements
• Orthodontic-surgical release of impacted teeth
The procedures are performed with local anaesthetics and are completely painless. However, the success of the procedure is largely determined by the patient’s behaviour in the days after the procedure. Therefore, we recommend to our patients to strictly follow the dentist’s recommendations in order to avoid possible post-operative complications.
Some of the recommendations are:
• Apply cold compresses to the affected area, externally, over the skin. Do not rinse your mouth throughout the day after the procedure. Afterwards, if bleeding has stopped, rinse the mouth regularly, every 4 hours for several days with saline, cold sage tea or antiseptics.
• Non-absorbable sutures are removed 7-10 days after the procedure. It is then recommended to clean the sutures daily, with one of the above-mentioned liquids.
• If bleeding continues for 2-3 days after the procedure, seek advice of your dentist.
• Avoid hot food and drinks immediately after the procedure, eat liquid or very soft food for a few days after the procedure.
• Follow your dentist’s instructions on how to use the prescribed antibiotic and analgesic after the procedure.
EXTRACTION AND SURGICAL REMOVAL OF TEETH
Tooth extraction is a procedure of the removal of a tooth or its remains from the bone cup (alveoli). The most common reasons for extraction are:
• deep caries, inability to treat inflammatory dental diseases
• a cyst that destroys a bone and a large inflammatory process that affects a part of the bone around the tooth root and cannot be repaired by cystectomy or apicoECtomy,
• orthodontic reasons (lack of space),
• fractured (broken) tooth root,
• impacted and retained (clamped) tooth
• deciduous teeth that do not fall out spontaneously.
What is the first thing you want people to notice in your smile? A beautiful array of the matched teeth that perfectly accompanies the features of your face or the gaps in the places where you miss your teeth? Whether you are missing one tooth, a few or maybe all of them, dental implants are an aesthetically and functionally safe solution for all forms of missing teeth (partial endentulous???). The dental implant placement is the most reliable method of replacing lost teeth with long-lasting results.
Surgery under local anaesthesia is required to place an implant and it is a fairly painless procedure. The procedure of placement of one dental implant takes less than an hour, up to a maximum of three hours if several implants need to be placed.
Detailed procedure description:
• Clinical examination and the analysis of three-dimensional imaging of the jaw (CBCT) show us the quality (density) and quantity (height and width) of the bone tissue in the area of the jaw where a dental implant needs to be placed.
• A detailed therapy plan is made and the patient receives drug therapy as a mandatory preparation for surgery.
• Each implant placement procedure is performed in strictly controlled conditions with special attention paid to the sterility of the instruments, work surfaces and spaces.
• After implant surgery an additional X-ray check is made to ensure the exact position of the implant and the relationship to the surrounding structures. After the procedure, the patient receives detailed instructions as to the post-operative course, type and method of diet as well as how to maintain oral hygiene in the early post-operative period.
• This is followed by a period of osteointegration, (healing period, necessary for connecting the implant to the bone that lasts 2-6 months). After this period, a super construction is placed and this is followed by the production of a dental prosthesis – crown, bridge or mobile prosthetic work.
Good to know – In certain cases necessary steps may precede the procedure since the implant is installed in the jawbone. A satisfactory volume of the bone for installing is required for a proper procedure. When the volume of the bone is not satisfactory, bone augmentation or bone volume augmentation with artificial materials (osseal substitution) or implantation of a membrane and artificial bone is required.
There is sometimes a belief that sore gums are not a reason to visit a dentist. It is less known that sore gums, if left untreated, can have very serious consequences such as permanent tooth loss. Ask for professional help. Quick Smile dental clinic, we treats sore gums with laser biostimulation 940nm and 2790nm, SO we solve the problem promptly and without pain using the most modern laser in the world.
We use the professional term “periodontium” for the supporting structures of the tooth and periodontology deals with its diseases. The periodontium consists of the gums (gingiva), bones and fibres that bind the tooth to the bone. The diseases of the supporting structures of the teeth are caused by the accumulation of plaque on the teeth and by the action of the bacteria and toxins that they produce. Inflamed gums are first signal for parodontal disease that leads to teeth loss. Depending of the disease progression, periodontal diseases are divided into two basic types and one subtype:
Gingivitis is the initial stage of gum inflammation and it is fully curable. The early signs of the disease onset are red, swollen and sore gums as well as bleeding when brushing your teeth. Gingivitis does not cause the loss of soft and bone tissue yet. However, if the disease is not treated, the inflammation will spread and a chronic infection called Periodontitis will soon occur.
Chronic gum inflammation affects the bone that supports the tooth and destroys the connective tissue of the tooth. This leads to mobility and then to the complete loss of the tooth. Periodontitis is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. It starts with mild symptoms such as red, swollen and painful gums, but, very quickly, more serious symptoms occur such as the forming of periodontal pockets, gum withdrawal, tooth mobility, and unpleasant symptoms such as bad breath.
Perimplantitis is an inflammation of the gingiva and bones around the implant. In the early phase, the inflammation affects only the gingiva and is manifested by mild symptoms such as redness or bleeding of the gingiva around the implant.
When the inflammation affects the bone, the symptoms become much more serious: swelling, pain, pus around the implant and bone loss. Therefore, regular visits to the dentist are necessary. Periimplantitis is considered a serious dental problem whose treatment is difficult and the results are uncertain. It is important to emphasise in the case of periimplantitis that proper prevention is crucial. We recommend regular oral hygiene to patients with implants and regular check-ups to remove soft and hard dental plaque on time, before the inflammation caused by the bacteria.
Some of the reasons that increase the appearance of periodontal problems are:
• Bad oral hygiene with large amounts of plaque and calculus in the oral cavity
• Smoking habits
• Uncontrolled diabetes
At Quick Smile dental clinic, we take both gingivitis and periodontitis equally seriously and we remove the problem successfully with laser therapy in the shortest amount of time. Gingivitis is successfully treated by removing dental plaque and hard plaque (tartar). In the case of periodontitis, having cured the inflamed gingiva, we need to remove soft and hard deposits deep in the periodontal pockets, right on the surface of the tooth root below the gum level. This prevents further progression of inflammation that leads to periodontal destruction. Regarding peri-implantitis proper prevention is crucial. We recommend professional teeth cleaning at least every six months to the patients with implants as well as regular check-ups to remove soft and hard dental plaque on time, before the bacteria cause inflammation.
We perform gingivectomy in accordance with the most advanced technological standards, using a laser that minimizes pain and enables fast and easy recovery. Before the procedure we give the patient local anaesthesia in order to completely remove discomfort. The procedure is fast and easy, the results are excellent
DENTAL RADIOLOGY - Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid
Modern dental medicine would not exist without dental radiology. X-rays are indispensable in dental diagnostics and in the planning and implementation of therapy. Dental radiology is important because only in the images can one see the changes that cannot be seen by ordinary visual examination.
X-rays are the best when it comes to showing the changes in the hard tissues of the teeth and bones.
Dental caries is seen in the image as an enlightenment on the crown of the tooth, which occurs due to the lack of enamel and dentin in its place. Changes in the bone are most often seen as enlightenment – at the site of the inflammation in the bone occurs its resorption, which results in reduced bone density, and this is observed as enlightenment. If there is a cyst in the bone, it is also noted as a severely limited enlightenment. An X-ray image shows, in the form of the shadows of different intensity, most of the artificial materials used for dental works – fillings, crowns, upgrades, implants.
There are various recording techniques, and the most commonly used is orthopantomogram. Orthopantomogram or orthopan is an extraoral technique of tooth imaging which includes all the teeth, upper and lower jaw, jaw joint, and partially the structures located above the mouth (nasal cavity, maxillary sinuses). It is used when it is necessary to get an insight into all the teeth and the surrounding bone structures. It is often made as an orientation image during the first examination since it shows all the teeth and surrounding structures at the same time. It is also used in all cases when it is more important to get an examination of all teeth than an accurate presentation of the details of the individual teeth. It is mostly used in prosthetic therapy planning, orthodontics and oral surgery when planning implant placements or the extraction of the teeth that have not erupted.
If a more detailed insight is needed into the condition of an individual tooth, a 3D image is taken. This technique is most often used to diagnose caries located on the contact surfaces of the adjacent teeth. Early-stage caries on this site is often not visible by clinical examination, but can be analysed in detail on a 3D image. Imaging with a digital orthopan and making an X-ray at the QUICK SMILE Polyclinic takes only a few minutes, hence it is not necessary to make an appointment. The recording procedure for 3D CBCT takes 30 seconds per jaw, and 10 seconds for 2D digital orthopan. The recording is instantaneous and can immediately be seen on the monitor in the polyclinic.
Since there is no waiting, the patient receives the recording right after the completion of the recording on a CD or it is sent by e-mail. At our clinic we use the
Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid device which represents a unique comprehensive CBCT (Cone Beam Computed Tomography) unit that includes 3D imaging, 3D photo, digital 2D panorama and cephalometry, all in the same unit. Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid meets a variety of diagnostic criteria: implantology, endodontics, periodontology, orthodontics, dental and maxillofacial surgery and TMJ analysis. Endodontic imaging method .
The unit takes photos with an extremely high resolution and a voxel size of 75 μm – which is perfect for small detail visualisation. Planmeca Romexis software offers versatile tools for diagnostics and endodontic treatment planning. Proven low-dose imaging .

Simply and comfortably, Planmeca ProMax 3D Mid provides a workflow with photos that is impeccable and a relaxing experience for a patient thanks to open patient positioning and the control panel that is easy to use.
We compensate for lost teeth with prosthetic replacements using conventional and modern, sophisticated technologies.
At Quick Smile DENTAL CLINIC we use advanced CAD CAM computer technology. State-of-the-art technology fully named Computer-Aided-Design / Computer-Aided-Manufacture is a computer simulation that enables design and manufacturing of all types of prosthetic works (inlays, onlays, crowns and bridges). Such works are of perfect anatomical shape, size and aesthetics.
The process of making prosthetic works is quick and easy using CAD/CAM technology. A special camera – PRIMESCAN (scanner) helps take a digital tooth impression. Computer processing turns such a print into a 3D model, which allows the dentist to accurately design the crown.
This is followed by the mechanical production (milling or printing) of pre-prepared blocks that are transformed into accurate prototypes of a given design, namely the future tooth. If necessary, it can be further individualised by applying special shades, to accurately imitate the colour of a natural tooth.
Zirconium is the most commonly used material in CAD/CAM technology. It replaces metal constructions previously used under the ceramic finish. Zirconium teeth are very durable and represent PREMIUM aesthetics in dentistry.
VENEERS (zircon flakes)
Dental veneers are thin transparent restorations fully made of ceramics that are glued to the front surfaces of the teeth and with which it is possible to achieve the maximum both in aesthetic and functional terms. Veneers can also be used to correct minor aesthetic defects such as coloration, cracks or tooth being worn out. Before the veneers are placed, the teeth should be ground a little, usually from 0.3 to 0.5 millimetres. This way the tooth stays healthy and no tooth tissue is lost. There are three most common reasons for choosing a veneer:
• Tooth position change
• Distance between teeth
• Tooth shape/crack change
Dental veneers are glued, namely cemented to natural teeth with special gluing techniques which are completely safe and non-invasive. After the placement of the veneers, one might be sensitive to heat or cold, but it passes fast.
CROWNS AND BRIDGES
Crowns and bridges are aesthetic zircon or metal-ceramic works AND they completely cover implants or natural teeth. Making a crown requires a tooth or at least its root that is functional enough for the crown. Building a bridge requires at least two preserved teeth or their roots that can serve as the support for the bridge.
Before the crowns are placed, the natural teeth must be ground. Tooth imprints are taken and crowns are made. Teeth must be ground, thinned, to make covers look as natural as possible.
The long-term success of the procedure will also depend on oral hygiene and regular check-ups. The crown, in addition to being an aesthetic replacement, will also be an adequate protection for the teeth that have been more severely damaged by caries or those where filling was not possible. While crowns cover only one tooth, bridges can make up for empty toothless space, in other words, more lost teeth.
If there are no bridges, spaces without teeth can cause more teeth to move. This can lead to bite problems and/or jaw movement problems.
Mobile dentures are mobile prosthetic replacements and they are designed to replace your lost teeth. They are supported in the mouth by soft tissue and hard structures (bone or the remaining teeth as well as the implants).
There are two types of dentures: partial and complete. The loss of all natural teeth leads to the loss of important functions of the stomatognathic system (chewing, swallowing, speech and appearance). We re-establish such functions with a properly made complete denture. If the denture is made correctly, most patients will adapt well to it.
PROSTHESES ON IMPLANTS
In cases of a complete tooth loss with sufficiently preserved bone, we offer plant-anchored denture solutions. Such dentures are still mobile and can be placed/removed independently, but they are attached with the elements that fit or “hook” on implants. The stability of the denture is enabled by the connection between the implant and the prosthesis. It is otherwise subject to displacement due to the action of strong cheek and tongue muscles. The attachment of the denture to the implants prevents displacements and ejection of the prosthesis from the mouth.
PROFESSIONAL ULTRASOUND DENTAL CLEANING AND PLAQUE REMOVAL
The removal of soft and hard dental plaque is a preventionAL dental procedure. It involves the removal of tartar, plaque, and pigmentation caused by food, DRINKS and/OR smoking. Cleaning dental plaque requires the use of ultrasonic instruments with a water JET. Polishing with a brush and fluoride paste, and sandblasting give the finish shine to a beautiful smile. The therapeutic procedure of removing dental plaque is painless. It is recommended not only as a prevention step but also as a procedure in the treatment and stopping of gum disease and periodontitis.
Teeth whitening is an aesthetic method of restoring the natural whiteness of teeth. The procedure is as safe as possible and all teeth that have become darker can be bleached, provided that there is no caries, gum inflammation or any other periodontal symptoms.
TEETH WHITENING USING THE BEYOND POLUS METHOD
The Beyond polUS method gives excellent results as far as teeth whitening is concerned. The procedure is based on the activation of hydrogen peroxide gel and a POLUS light lamp is used. Hydrogen peroxide penetrates the enamel, reaches the dentinal surface. Then it starts to decompose into hydrogen and oxygen, a chemical reaction begins further enhanced by the influence of light. Active oxygen action removes stains.
Three steps to perfectly white teeth:
1. The removal of tartar and teeth polishing precede the procedure. The goal is a completely clean and dry surface.
2. A special protective material is applied to the gums later. It is hardened by the action of the polymerisation lamp and it protects the gingiva from irritation.
3. Afterwards, the visible surfaces of the teeth are covered with hydrogen peroxide gel. Then the POLUS activation lamp is turned on. The treatment lasts about one hour and is performed in one visit.
A proper tooth position is important for the health of the masticatory system, jaw joint, muscles and surrounding tooth tissue; It allows an even transmission of masticatory forces, which protects the supporting tooth tissue and the teeth themselves from overload and thus from excessive wear.
Orthodontics IS BASED ON diagnosiTICs and treatment of the incorrect position and alignment of teeth and the upper and lower jaw RELATIONS.
The correct position of teeth is significant for your beautiful smile and even more significant for your health.
CLEAR TOOTH APPLIANCES - ALIGNERS
An aligner is a transparent appliance that UPRIGTHS teeth using a set of almost invisible foils that are made individually for each patient. What makes it unique is the fact that most people won’t notice it at all because it’s virtually invisible. It is not just transparent but also comfortable to wear and easy to remove. Aligners are easy to use and can be taken out of the mouth at any time. However, they must be worn 20-22 hours a day to achieve the desired effect. They are comfortable to wear and do not cause pain. The therapy duration is individual and it depends on the case complexity.
After the analysis of the prints, photographs and X-rays, a therapy plan and the sets of aligners are made by means of the most modern technOLGY. An aligner is made for each phase of the tooth movement. The teeth are slowly moved to the desired position. After the treatment plan, the patient can see what his teeth will look like at the end of therapy. Aligners are changed every 10-15 days WITH THE NEW ALIGNERS, depending on the therapy plan.
MOBILE ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCE
WITH mobile orthodontic appliances WE TREAT the youngest patients, in the phase of mixed dentition when, in addition to the permanent teeth, the milk teeth are also present in the oral cavity.
The therapeutic procedure is simple. After the first examination the orthodontist takes impressions FOR THE modelS. On the basis of thEsE modelS, X_RAYS, PANORAMIC X-RAYS, THE SPECIALIST makes an orthodontic therapy plan. Impression taking is completely painless.
Mobile orthodontic therapy is often the first phase of therapy We start it at an early age of the patient. We continue it when the permanent teeth are fully developed, with a fixed orthodontic appliance. If necessary, the mobile device can be put in and taken out of the mouth. However, it is definitely recommended to wear it for 16 hours a day on average.
FIXED ORTHODONTIC APPLIANCES
Fixed orthodontic appliances, unlike mobile, cannot be removed. Fixed appliances consist of tubes that are placed on the molars, BRACKETS placed on the outer or inner surfaces of the teeth and arche WIRES that pass through the slot – groove on the BRACKETS.
As far as conventional small BRACKETS are concerned, the arche WIRES hold wire or rubber ligatures in the slot, or small doors of modern self-ligating small BRACKETS. In the therapy when fixed orthodontic appliances are used, regular oral hygiene is very important.
One needs to brush teeth after every meal during the day. In addition to the usual toothbrushes, there are also interdental brushes that are customised in size to allow cleaning of the space between the teeth and the BRACKETS.
DURING fixed orthodontic appliance TREATMENT, it is necessary to avoid food that sticks to teeth and BRACKETS (for example, caramel, chewing gum, etc.). USING hard food and nuts CAN DAMMAGE EVERY PART OF THE APPLIANCE Hard food should not be gritted. A check-up IS MANDATORY EVERY 4-6 WEEKS by THE orthodontist.
One of the most advanced technologies in daily use of the DENTAL CLINIC Quick Smile is the laser. The laser used for IN OUR DAILY dental practice is WaterLase iPlus 2790nm and diode laser 940nm.
The 940nm diode laser has a specific effect on soft tissues. Since 96% of the bacteria are pigmented, the 940nm diode laser absorbs melanin, pigmentation and haemoglobin, thereby destroying all bacteria. For this reason, we achieve faster and more effective results by applying laser therapy in periodontal treatment, whereas manual curettage and surgical procedures offer no possibility of the absorption.
Additionally, we often encounter problems in ROOT canal treatments with conventional canal cleaning (manual or MECHANICAL with RECIPROC for example) upon encountering narrow canals or curves in the canals that cannot be adequately treated. With such channels, the laser allows transmitting energy and thus achieving more effective results. Diode laser completes additional disinfection of the canal and can be used for all soft tissue procedures such as gingivectomy, removal of fibroids (connective growths in the oral cavity), ferulectomy (removal of fringe), opening of implants, etc.
The 2790 nm laser is used both for hard and soft tissues. Children and adults prefer the 2790nm i-Plus laser repair since it is ALMOST painLESS AND making no direct contact with the tooth. The type (laser extension) is placed 2mm above the tooth surface, so a jet of water covers the tooth surface and a patient only feels water during the procedure. We usually tell children that the sound of a laser is similar to popcorn POPPING AND THAT makes the treatment even more enjoyable.
The effect of regeneration refers to cells biostimulation of surrounding area, which is done by reducing inflammation and encouraging cells regeneration.
