Prophylaxis means the prevention of diseases. Both caries and periodontosis are primarily caused by bacteria. The basis for healthy teeth and gums is optimal oral hygiene.
Because our clinic puts great value on the prevention of caries and periodontosis, we have worked out a prevention program, which we would like to briefly introduce to you.
We can determine the composition of your saliva by using this test. The presence of certain bacteria tells us a lot about your susceptibility to caries and periodontosis.
With specific individualized treatment, as well as through nutrition counseling, the risk can be greatly decreased.
Your hereditary predisposition towards a diseased periodontal apparatus (periodontosis) can be determined with a test. Appropriate specific countermeasures can then be initiated in order to prevent the disease.
A thorough cleansing of the teeth is performed with a “sandblaster”, which is especially useful for the removal of stubborn coffee, tea and smoking stains.
