Preventive care – The basis of your dental health

Prophylaxis refers to all measures that serve to prevent tooth decay, periodontitis and other tooth and gum diseases. In a broader sense, cleaning your teeth at home is also part of prophylaxis.
Professional dental hygiene, in which the teeth are freed from bacteria and plaque, is particularly important in prophylaxis.
In children, prophylactic measures also include sealing fissures – i.e. the pits in the chewing surfaces of the posterior teeth, in which caries is particularly common and which are often so deep that they cannot be cleaned effectively.
A sufficient supply of fluoride and other natural trace elements that are needed to build bones and teeth, as well as nutritional recommendations, are also part of this.
