Prevention and Prophylaxis, Check-ups
and Professional Teeth Cleaning
Beautiful, healthy teeth and healthy gums not only determine our appearance, our ability to chew, and our speech, but also our well-being generally speaking. Dental health is an important human and social factor in life. Regular check-ups and regular professional teeth cleaning prevent permanent damage to the teeth and lower the risk for caries and periodontitis. Pathological results can be diagnosed early on and diseases of the gums and periodontium can be prevented. Healthy teeth for all generations are based on prophylaxis.
Even the best dental care at home cannot replace a professional teeth cleaning. It is an indispensable complementary treatment for all ages. There are parts in everyone's mouth that are hard to reach even for the best brusher, such as the smallest of gaps created by malocclusions, tightly spaced teeth, or corners created by crowns or dentures. This is where plaque builds up with millions of bacteria. A professional teeth cleaning gently removes these bacteria using ultrasound instruments. Discolorations caused by tea, coffee, red wine, tobacco etc. are removed with an air polishing system (AIR-FLOW®). The teeth are polished and re-mineralized with fluoride. A professional teeth cleaning also improves your teeth from an aesthetic perspective.
In addition to active cleaning, we are happy to advise you regarding dental care, bad breath and a diet that is both gentle on the teeth and good for them. It's best to start early in life! You can find the most important advice regarding the right care here.
