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.
The dental centers CASA DENTALIS, your dentists for prophylaxis in Berlin, offer you a wide range of different prophylactic treatments because your health is important to us. Our prophylaxis offer includes:

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.
