Prophylaxis and careful, regular cleaning of your teeth is the most important measure to preserve your own teeth. In addition to daily dental care at home, you should have your teeth regularly examined and professionally cleaned once or twice a year.
Caries risk test
The so-called "buffer capacity of the saliva" provides information about the caries-causing bacteria in the saliva as well as the protective function of the saliva against caries. With a saliva test we determine your personal "caries risk".
This enables us to develop measures that are individually tailored to you to prevent the development of caries.
Did you know that an infant is born without caries germs? These germs are often transmitted by mothers or other caregivers, e.g. by licking the pacifier. This fact alone is an important reason, especially for parents, to have such a test done.
This measure protects against caries. The enamel surface is treated with special fluoride pastes, varnishes or gels that form a kind of protective film on your teeth.
In the small irregularities and cracks in the tooth surface, the so-called fissures, food remains can settle. This is unpleasant and not good for your teeth. A special varnish, which is simply applied, provides relief and prevention.
