Prophylaxis - Intensive cleaning of teeth by professionals
We recommend you to go to a dental prophylaxis at least twice a year! Anyone who has taken care of them by means of a professional tooth cleaning (PZR) has proven to have better oral health and optimizes their oral hygiene: Regular prophylaxis increases the vitality of the gums and ensures good-looking, well-groomed teeth - even into old age.
Professional teeth cleaning is worthwhile for all patients. It is mainly plaque and tartar which is removed - it contains bacteria that cause gum disease and tooth decay. Even if your brushing technique is correct - plaque also forms in the interdental space and underneath the gums. Our specially trained prophylaxis specialists remove the plaque with ultrasound and Airflow (various instruments) and in several treatment steps, polish the teeth and then provide them with a protective film.
A professional teeth cleaning session takes a maximum of 30 minutes due to the innovative and highly effective airflow treatment and costs 120 euros per session. Finally, with a tooth-care gel, the tooth surface is sealed against acid from the food. There are good dental additional insurance, which take over the costs - the statutory health insurance unfortunately do not pay for dental prophylaxis. Talk to us, we are happy to advise you!
Inventory / Digital X-Ray
Before orthodontic treatment can be started, an accurate inventory is required. It consists of the following:
- Detailed examination of the patient
- Preparation of situation models and their measurement
- Radiovisiography and computer-assisted analysis
- Prediction of the treatment objective
How the teeth are facing each other has a direct impact on the temporomandibular joints. If the bite is not right, it will cause pain as soon as natural adaptation through the muscles and joints is no longer possible. These abnormal changes in the masticatory apparatus or the presence of teeth grinding (bruxism) can trigger pain in the jaw and cheek area. A malfunction of the jaw and the effects on the muscles or the joints as well as the reverse effect of these is called craniomandibular dysfunction (CMD).
We analyze the extent of the disorder as well as the pain-triggering areas. Often interdisciplinary treatments are useful. Trust in our therapeutic network - contact us!
Activator & Bionator
... the body is a single unit - all of its parts influence and are influenced by each other.
Malpositioning of jaws, either inherited or acquired, may be treated with removable, functional orthodontic appliances when the patients is still in the growth phase. Activators and Bionators activate in-built sources of energy, e.g., masseter, lip, tongue or cheek muscles. During the growth phase, the appliance stimulates the muscles to bring upper and lower jaw into their respective correct positions. The appliance can be compared to a fitness machine that produces physiological muscular balance in the mouth.
In order to stabilize treatment results, we work with lingual retainers. The retainer is a thin thread that is fixed by a plastic substance on the backside of the frontal teeth in the upper and lower jaw. The retainer takes care that the teeth do not move back into their original position.
Permanent beautiful teeth and a self-confident, bright smile can not always be taken for granted even after orthodontic treatment, unfortunately. The long-time stabilisation is the best means to a permanent beautiful set of seeth. Sometimes it can be necessary to wear the retainer for a long time, maybe even all life long in order to avoid malpositions of the set of teeth. The retainer is hardly noticeable and comfortable and because it is fixed onto the teeth, one does not forget to wear it. It is reasonable to let the retainer be conrolled twice a year by an orthodontist.
