Dental prophylaxis – healthy and beautiful teeth for a lifetime
Professional dental cleaning is next to daily dental care is the be-all and end-all for healthy teeth. No matter how intensively you care for your teeth, there are places that cannot be reached properly even with a toothbrush and dental floss. We therefore recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned by your dentist once or twice a year.
The professional teeth cleaning
lasts about 45 minutes and is painless. First, coatings are removed using special ultrasound equipment and hand instruments. The teeth are then polished and a fluoride paste is applied to strengthen the enamel and protect the teeth. Apart from the health aspect – the prevention of paradontosis and tooth decay – professional teeth cleaning also has an aesthetic effect: discoloration of the teeth is removed and teeth are whitened. Regular professional tooth cleaning is essential for healthy teeth and a long service life for fillings and dentures.
Why professional care?
No matter how well you take care of your teeth, you will never reach all corners. Because the toothbrush fails in bottlenecks, further back in the mouth, in the gaps and on the gum line. The electric toothbrush penetrates a little deeper into the interdental spaces, but they remain largely unbrushed. And this is exactly where leftover food and saliva deposits, from which plaque forms. Bacteria settle on this, which attack the teeth and can lead to caries or periodontitis. Professional teeth cleaning can thoroughly remove soft and hard plaque. Dentists recommend professional teeth cleaning twice a year.
