If you want to be beautiful, you don't have to suffer at all!
Three things the tooth needs
Actually it is not so difficult:
- you care for your teeth thoroughly and regularly
- you keep your 6-monthly check-up appointments
- you undergo regular prophylaxis sessions.
Why should I do it?
If we neglect regular oral hygiene, it has serious long-term consequences: Bacteria build up and lead to plaque (dental plaque), tartar, and eventually tooth decay. Plaque and tartar cause gum inflammation, gum overgrowth, and in the worst cases, even tooth pocket fissures to develop. Caries first destroys the tooth surface. If nothing is done, the bacteria can penetrate into the interior of the tooth. Once “carius and bactus” have reached this stage, major treatments are the inevitable consequence. Ouch!
And even if it were “only” a matter of beauty, discolored teeth and unpleasant bad breath are simply not part of a well-groomed appearance. By the way – did you know that the human brain decides in just three seconds whether we find a person we are getting to know likeable or unlikeable? The appearance is clearly decisive here!
We recommend that you visit once every 6 months for a cleaning. This allows your us to get a look at your teeth and let you know if there’s anything that needs to be addressed, such as a cavity or gingivitis.
We recommend frequency dental care visit based on your specific risk factors for gum disease (periodontitis) and tooth loss.
You may be at a higher risk for gum disease if you:
- have diabetes
- smoke cigarettes
- have a family history of gum disease
We remove tartar and plaque from your teeth. The hardest to reach areas of your mouth are cleaned with special instruments to remove stubborn plaque. This involves cleaning the gum pockets to a depth of 1 to 2 mm. This is done using ultrasound and mechanical instruments.
2. fluoride treatment
To prevent tooth decay, we can treat your teeth with fluoride. This fluoride treatment can be in the form of a paste, gel or varnish. At the end of the cleaning, we can talk to you about proper dental hygiene and recommend products that you can use to keep your teeth healthy at home.
The duration of the Professional Dental Cleaning (PZR) is about one hour.
The best way to keep teeth healthy between cleanings is to maintain good oral hygiene. This includes brushing your teeth twice a day for 4 minutes and using interdental brushes.
