Prophylaxis

Fotolia_68640999_S.jpg

Professional dental cleaning is a main component of dental prophylaxis. This enables dental and gum diseases to be recognised and avoided in good time.

In every oral cavity plaque or biofilm forms on the teeth. This biofilm consists of billions of bacteria that develop a metabolism. In the process, they utilize carbohydrates and then excrete acids. These aggressive acids cause tooth damage (caries) and inflammation of the gums (gingivitis) up to bone loss (periodontitis). Many patients do not manage to reach all the spaces and niches in the oral cavity and thus remove these bacteria, even with thorough dental care.

Coffee, tea or tobacco smoke can cause deposits to form. Plaque and tartar are not only aesthetically unattractive, but also cause bad breath, caries, gingivitis and periodontitis. Sometimes you can brush well enough, but you will never be able to remove all the deposits. Some places are difficult to reach with a brush or floss. These include the wisdom teeth and molars, but also gum pockets and parts of the interdental spaces. This is why plaque will accumulate there and harden into tartar over time.

 It is therefore important that each patient receives his or her own individually tailored prophylaxis programme.

The health insurance companies finance only one simple variant: Here, the prophylaxis assistant only removes the hard, visible tartar; and the insurance company reimburses the costs for this only once a year. With professional dental cleaning, your teeth are also freed from soft plaque and polished to a high gloss.

1. prophylaxis during pregnancy

The foundation stone for the health of the child is already laid during pregnancy. This is to prevent gum disease and pain in the mother's mouth in order to reduce the risk of premature birth. During pregnancy, pregnancy gingivitis increases, which can also develop into periodontitis. This is due to the increased hormone concentration that occurs during pregnancy. This leads to increased bleeding and swelling of the gums.

This leads to pseuydal pockets and thus to easier deposition of bacterial plaque and more difficult cleaning of the teeth. In order to reduce this process one should take prophylaxis. The education of the mother is an important point to protect the newborn child from diseases. We have a large number of bacteria in the mouth area which are also transferable.

2. early examination

Dental screening includes the detection of dental, oral and maxillofacial diseases, the assessment of the caries risk, nutritional and oral hygiene advice and fluoridation measures of the child and should be carried out from the 30th to the 72nd month of life. This early detection measure is intended to support the child's oral health. If the child gets used to visiting the dentist early, it will be easier for him or her to visit the dentist as an adult.

3. child and youth prophylaxis

Parents should get their children used to a routine visit to the dentist at an early age. Early check-ups for small children are useful and important for various reasons in order to detect possible diseases in time. The statutory health insurance provides for an individual prophylaxis program for 6 to 17 year olds. In the individual prophylaxis, the susceptibility to caries is examined and determined, tips for improving oral hygiene are given, the following are carried out

The teeth are thoroughly cleaned and a fluoride concentrate is applied to the enamel to protect the teeth. The fissures and pits of the molars are sealed to protect against caries.
