Prophylaxis comprises the prevention of diseases and embodies
the most important aspect of modern dentistry. Caries as well as
periodontitis are caused by bacteria. Prophylaxis is directed towards reducing bacterial proliferation through good oral hygiene and a healthy diet. Dental care at home helps to reduce bacterial growth in the oral cavity. However, that alone does not suffice. We recommend that preventive dental measures be taken at regular intervals to supplement home care. The key elements in our practice include professional cleaning (thorough and gentle cleaning of dental surfaces) and individual consultation in regard to home oral hygiene and diet. If you wish, we can offer you written reminders of scheduled preventive examinations and prophylactic measures within the framework of our recall system.
