Regular visits to dental hygiene should be a matter of course for everyone, just like preventive dental examinations. It is a treatment process that complements dental visits.
A visit to a dental hygienist includes a comprehensive examination of the oral cavity. The occurrence of dental plaque, calculus, bleeding gums is checked. The most important step is the periodontal examination in which the depth of the space between the tooth and the gum is measured.
Based on these examinations we will draw up an individual treatment plan for you.
The dental hygienist will clean your teeth of plaque and tartar, which is absolutely essential for the prevention of gum inflammation (gingivitis) and periodontitis (paradontosis). Dental hygiene will reduce the number of bacteria in the oral cavity, thus preventing infections or tooth decay. Bacteria are normally present in the mouth, but they must not exceed a certain level, which the organism can no longer cope with.
An integral part of the visit is also instruction on proper tooth brushing and individual selection of dental aids for home care.
You can also undergo aesthetic treatments such as teeth whitening or sandblasting.
Our dentists work closely with dental hygienists so that you receive the best care.
