Dental prophylaxis – healthy and beautiful teeth for a lifetime
Professional tooth cleaning, daily dental care is the be-all and end-all for healthy teeth. But no matter how intensively you care for your teeth, there are places that even a toothbrush and dental floss cannot properly reach. We therefore recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned by your dentist once or twice a year.
The professional tooth cleaning
It takes about 45 minutes and is absolutely painless. First, deposits are removed with special ultrasonic devices or 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.
Protect natural tooth substance
In many cases, a good result can already be achieved by cleaning and whitening your teeth (bleaching). With careful processing, the modern plastic materials often enable optimal results, especially in the front tooth area.
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 gets a little better in the direction of the gaps. Nevertheless, they remain unpolished. 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 both soft and hard deposits, i.e. tartar. Dentists recommend professional teeth cleaning twice a year.
