Frequently asked questions

How often a year should you go to the dentist?
Regular check-ups with your dentist are recommended at least once a year – or more frequently, depending on the condition of your teeth and oral hygiene. The performance of professional teeth cleaning is discussed individually with your dentist depending on different indicators and, if necessary, performed more frequently per year.
When and how often should my child go to the dentist?

Your child’s first visit to the dentist should take place at best after the eruption of the first teeth, but at the latest when the child reaches the age of one. The more playful the first dental visits are, the more your child will enjoy going to the dentist. We recommend taking your child to the dentist at least twice a year. In this way, the dentist can regularly examine your child’s dentition during a purely preventive check-up and, if necessary. carious lesions early, but also practice dental prophylaxis measures such as toothbrushing training with your child. Because: The goal is healthy teeth through good prophylaxis!

Does implantation hurt?
In order to provide painless treatment at the dentist, we use local anesthetics for local anesthesia. We administer these in the form of a syringe. Here, the injection may cause a short “prick”, but afterwards the affected area is anesthetized and you will not feel anything from the actual treatment.
What happens if I am diagnosed with caries?

Therapeutic approaches to carious lesions vary depending on their severity and progression.
Good dental hygiene and remineralization of the teeth, e.g. with professional tooth cleaning by applying a fluoride-containing tooth gel, the spread can possibly already be stopped.
There is also the possibility of sealing the teeth by applying a synthetic material. However, this is only possible if the caries is detected at an early stage. If carious lesions are already present, what remains is filling therapy or even the fabrication of dental crowns or bridges.

Why do I have bad breath?
Bad breath can have a wide variety of causes. Most often, the reasons are found in poor oral hygiene due to the deposition of bacteria in the interdental spaces or on the tongue. A quick remedy for this can be an oral hygiene plan or dental cleaning. Also, a dry mouth can be for example. lead to bad breath due to smoking or stress, when not enough saliva can be produced. However, bad breath can also be caused by other underlying diseases, which should then be specifically treated.
