What is prophylaxis?

Prophylaxis (also prevention) aims to keep your teeth healthy for as long as possible. Prophylaxis at your dentists thus includes all measures to prevent the development or worsening of complaints in the oral cavity.

At CASA DENTALIS, your dentist puts great importance to comprehensive prophylaxis in order to prevent consequential damage and potential complaints in the oral cavity. The most important thing your dentists at CASA DENTALIS do is to remove dental plaque, as this is the main cause of diseases such as tooth decay and periodontitis.

  • Check-ups

Good prophylaxis

Prophylaxis does not only take place on the dentist’s chair. Rather, good prophylaxis is a collaboration between you, as a patient, and your dentist. Because the most important component of prophylaxis is oral hygiene at home.

Oral hygiene at home

Only those who brush their teeth enough, avoid excessive sugar consumption and also clean interdental spaces daily, set a good foundation for the prophylaxis and a healthy oral cavity.

Professional dental cleaning 

Not all places of the oral cavity can be reached with a toothbrush. Most of the time, plaque oftentimes remains on the surface. For this reason, it is important to have your teeth cleaned professionally by your dentist twice a year at one of our locations in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf. The professional dental cleaning is an intensive cleaning of the teeth, which consists of the removal of deposits, discoloration as well as polishing and fluoridation.

Regular Check-up appointments: 

Dental diseases associated with prophylaxis are silent and insidious. Symptoms such as pain usually only appear when the disease is already well advanced. The only way to recognize and treat the disease on time  is with the help of your dentist. At regular check-ups, our experienced dental specialists will recognize diseases immediately and take precautions,  if necessary.

Overview of a correct prophylaxis:

  • Good oral hygiene at home
  • Limited consumption of  sugary foods and products
  • Brush your teeth twice a day
  • Use dental floss or interdental brushes
  • Regular professional dental cleaning
  • Consistent regular check-ups at your dentists

Professional dental cleaning

Professional dental cleaning is the intensive cleaning of the teeth, interdental spaces and gum pockets by a prophylactic expert at CASA DENTALIS. Dental plaque is removed, teeth are cleaned, polished and fluoridated. Professional dental cleaning is far more intensive than tooth cleaning, which is is usually done with a normal toothbrush.

The dental preventive measures by your CASA DENTALIS dentist offer our patients numerous prophylaxis advantages, such as:

  • Lowering the risk of heart attacks and cerebral infarctions, premature births, diabetes, arthritis, rheumatism and gastrointestinal diseases (by removing the germs in the gum pockets)
  • Caries reduction drops significantly, which means no tooth fillings or loss
  • Protection against acids and germs (fluoride, chlorhexidine)
  • Reduction of tooth neck sensitivity
  • After a professional dental cleaning, teeth are clean, smooth and return to their natural color
  • Clean, a feeling of freshness in the mouth; no bad breath
  • individual risk analysis and treatment
  • Durabilty of fillings and dentures

The frequency of professional dental cleaning depends on your individual needs, dental hygiene and your dental health. Our experienced dentists at CASA DENTALIS recommend that you get professional teeth cleaning twice a year.

However, this prophylaxis frequency can vary. For example, if you suffer from periodontitis, professional dental cleaning must be carried out more often. If there’s a high  risk of catching dental diseases, prophylaxis should be carried out every three months. During your preventive check-up, your Berlin dentist will be happy to determine your individual frequency and develops your personal prophylaxis plan.

  • First, the condition of the teeth is determined by our prophylaxis experts in Berlin Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf and examined for conditions such as tooth decay. With regular check-ups at your dentists, different dental conditions can be recognized early and treated in a pain-free.
  • The professional dental cleaning usually begins with the removal of hard deposits (tartar), which usually settle on the gum line, in open spaces or in gum pockets.
  • Then discoloration is minimized using a powder jet (air flow) and / or a special paste.
  • The teeth are then polished to prevent repeated germ collection.
  • The treatment is completed with fluoridation. Fluoride increases the resistance to acids and fosters the remineralization of the enamel.
    Your CASA DENTALIS dentists will be happy to advise you on the ideal oral hygiene.

You can get a professional dental cleaning treatment at all CASA DENTALIS locations in Berlin Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf or Steglitz-Zehlendorf. Your dentist will be happy to assist you anytime.
