Everyday oral hygiene at home is the basis of healthy teeth. But often that is not enough in order to optimally care for teeth and gums. Manifold nooks and corners offer ideal spaces for food debris and bacteria, but mainly under the gums and in the gingival crevices that cannot be cleaned only with a tooth brush.
Professional tooth cleanings at your dentist’s office are ideal. Plaque and tartar which are the cause of cavities and periodontitis are thoroughly removed. The care of the surface of the tongue is also part of a complete cleaning. Bacteria can also be on the tongue and cause halitosis and diseases not only in the oral cavity.
In addition to oral hygiene at home a professional cleaning should be performed depending on the individual risk approximately twice a year.
