We Want You to Smile Beautifully.
Healthy pretty teeth embody vitality and soulfulness. They are essential for food ingestion and overall well-being and nowadays, even become a status symbol. Fresh breath and brilliant white teeth stand for health and high living standards.
Two signifiant health conditions compromise the image: caries and periodontosis, mainly caused by various bacteria.
For patients with healthy gum, professional cleaning is part of precautionary measures towards caries, gingival inflammation and periodontitis as well as for overall reduction of bacteria.
For patients where the periodontium, i. e. tissues that surround and support teeth, is already affected, professional cleaning constitutes an important step in preparatory and follow up treatments of periodontal therapies to prevent progression of this disease.
Timely intervals between intensive cleaning depend on individual medical conditions and are set in your accordance.
After initial examination, dental plaque is removed via an ultrasonic device and manual instruments. In case of persistent plaque (e.g. smokers, high consume of tea/ coffee), we utilize an airflow applicator. We carefully rinse your teeth and polish and strengthen denture using a fluoride preparation. As teeth surface feels significantly smoother and clean, bacteria are unable to stick to it.
Our friendly staff in prophylaxis department is qualified with a degree from Dental Association Nordrhein and is doing their best to assure careful and sensitive treatment. They review optimal teeth care with our patients and demonstrate dental floss, interdental as well as tongue brushes.
Timely intervals are dependent on individual clinical finding, usually it is recommended to undergo a professional cleaning once every six months. Systematic illnesses call for closer intervals like three or four months. If the denture is caries free and oral hygienic diagnosis is excellent, the time interval can be extended to twelve months.
Time exposure is different and depends on maintenance situation and individual health conditions. Usually, a session takes roughly 60 minutes.
Cost are accounted according to GOZ (German regulation of fees for dentists). Therefore, cost are not uniform but range from 80,- to 150,- Euro.
Usually, local anaesthesia is not required; in case of distinctively sensitive teeth, gums can be superficially stunned with a special gel. The effect only last as long for the duration of the professional cleaning.
Narrow interdental spaces require dental floss or broader floss, wider spaces call for interdental brushes of different sizes.
Superfloss is foamed dental floss with strengthened ends, which are threaded under bridge parts and pulled through to clean the spaces between bridge parts. It is also suited for wider interdental spaces.
There are several techniques for manual brushes starting from KAI for children (chewing surfaces, external and internal surfaces) over Fones technique (circular movements) to Bass technique (jouncing movement in 45 degree angle).
In terms of electric tooth brushes, it is differentiated between rotating movements and sonic toothbrushes. The latter additionally rinse interdental spaces with the foam mixture. Electric tooth brushes need to be applied to dental rows and individual teeth, jouncing and vibrating is done automatically by the brush.
Both cleaning methods are successful when applied correctly with thorough cleaning taxonomy.
Electric tooth brushes are recommendable.
When buying tooth paste, you should pay attention as to fluoride content as well as a pleasant taste and choose a paste that does not irritate mucous membranes. Additionally, a small RDA (Relative Dentine Abrasion) value is recommendable (smaller than 40).
