Together with professional tooth cleaning, prophylaxis forms an important pillar of the health of gums and teeth. Oral health problems in old age can thus be avoided.
In addition to home dental care, we recommend our patients to have a professional tooth cleaning performed at least twice a year. Because even with the most thorough care in your own bathroom, it is not possible to completely remove bacterial plaque, or to reach interdental spaces with the brush.
Guided Biofilm Therapy – the prophylaxis concept at T7
Procedure for cleaning teeth at T7 Dentistry in Berlin
Professional tooth cleaning consists of several steps that together take 45 to 60 minutes. Our specially trained prophylaxis assistants carry out the treatment that can best be combined with a six-monthly check-up by our dentists.
- Examination of the teeth, determination of the risk of disease
The examination of the gums and teeth allows an exact determination of the necessary prophylaxis measures.
- Determination of the dental plaque (plaque index)
We make plaque visible by staining and document the extent. The next time they clean their teeth, patients can see whether their cleaning behavior has reduced plaque.
- Removal of tartar, plaque and discoloration
We remove all unwanted deposits and discoloration. Even in gaps that cannot be reached with a toothbrush.
- Manual reworking with dental floss and interdental brush
With our hand instruments we can reach every area in the mouth.
- Tooth polish to smooth the teeth
The polish smooths the tooth surfaces, on which tartar, plaque and bacteria can then no longer easily accumulate.
- Fluoridation of the teeth with protective varnish to harden the teeth and to protect the tooth enamel from acids
Fluoride varnish is applied to the polished teeth, which gives the teeth additional protection.
Advantages of professional tooth cleaning
Regular teeth cleaning is the best prevention against tooth decay and periodontitis . Together with careful dental care at home and regular check-ups at the dentist, optimal oral health is made possible. Depending on your susceptibility to tartar and your eating and drinking habits (coffee, tea, etc.), we recommend having your teeth cleaned professionally every three to six months. This reduces the risk of dental disease.
