With professional teeth cleaning, your own teeth will be kept beautiful and healthy for a long time.
Unfortunately, your own dental care at home is often not enough to remove all bacteria and prevent dental diseases such as caries or periodontitis. Particularly on rough tooth surfaces, but also in the interdental spaces and gum pockets, food residues and bacteria are deposited, against which the body’s own cleaning system cannot defend itself.
The aim of a dental cleaning is to prevent the susceptibility of diseases of your own teeth and cosmetic effects such as discoloration caused by consumption of coffee, tea, red wine or nicotine.
Difference from “normal” teeth cleaning
The difference between individual prophylaxis and standard dental cleaning is that here a preventive care package is put together based on determined oral hygiene values of the individual patient.
This involves testing to determine the “weak spots” in a patient’s dentition, so that it is clear which areas may be susceptible to caries or periodontitis.
With the help of the results, the dentist can inform his patient about possible clinical pictures and show him helpful tips on oral hygiene or treatment options.
Individual prophylaxis also useful for children
Especially between the ages of 6 and 12, a child’s dentition changes due to the eruption of permanent teeth.
At this stage, the “new” teeth are particularly susceptible to decay and adolescent care and detailed education to prevent dental disease is extremely important.
At our clinic, all dental cleanings are performed by the dentists themselves.
For individual prophylaxis of children, the dentist first takes a picture of the overall oral hygiene and thoroughly looks at the teeth.
Insufficiently brushed teeth and areas susceptible to caries are identified and documented so that the focus can be placed on whether there has been an improvement in the patient’s brushing behavior at follow-up appointments.
Education about possible consequences and diseases caused by insufficient oral hygiene and numerous sugary foods is also an essential part of individual prophylaxis for children.
In addition, it may be advisable to seal the permanent teeth with a thin plastic layer after eruption in order to prevent caries or other deposits.
At the end of the treatment, the teeth are then coated again with a fluoride concentrate to promote hardening of the enamel.
