Extensive treatment methods in dentistry
Technical development is also making continuous progress in the field of dentistry. Gentle treatment methods and surgical interventions are designed with the well-being of the patient in mind through the use of innovative technologies.
These forms of therapy yield faster healing, less pain, as well as a significantly lower amount of time spent before, during and after therapy.
Thanks to modern forms of treatment, even patients with anxiety no longer have to forego a visit to the dentist, as special treatments in this segment lead to a drop in the anxiety barometer.
Incidentally, worth knowing and useful information as well as all the essentials about teeth is provided on the website Zahnarzt Gemeinschaftspraxis in Stuttgart Red.
Everyone is certainly anxious to show their beautiful, even and bright white teeth when they smile. Whether in professional or private life, with a well-groomed set of teeth you immediately collect plus points.
At the beginning of every successful treatment concept there is always prophylaxis. Only if the dentist recognizes that the substance of the teeth is intact, follow-up measures such as inlays, veneers or bridges will be worthwhile.
Prophylaxis provides a noticeable esthetics, giving the patient security and a radiant appearance, and perfect protection against caries and periodontitis.
But how do these two „enemies“ of the teeth actually develop??
Holes in the teeth and bleeding gums
Periodontitis and caries are caused by bacteria, which find sufficient breeding ground for their development in the plaque.
In the course of the process, they take in carbohydrates via the patient’s food, which is converted into an aggressive acid during metabolism.
This continuously attacks the enamel until ultimately the hole in the tooth is formed (caries). The aggressive bacteria are also the cause of gingivitis.
As can be read on the online portal of the German Society for Aesthetic Dentistry (DGÄZ), initial bleeding of the gums is a clear indication of an incipient inflammation.
Periodontitis develops from this without the professional help of the dentist.
Prevent yourself – avoid mistakes when brushing your teeth
In addition to dental prophylaxis, which is the basis for a healthy dental apparatus, everyone can prevent themselves. It begins with the correct tooth brushing.
Although done thousands of times from childhood, carelessness and inattention lead to mistakes and jeopardize the existence and preservation of healthy teeth. Here are some tips to follow.
- The choice of toothbrush (equally for electric and manual toothbrushes)
The bristles should not be too hard, as this can damage the gums. The brush head should be adjusted to the size of the mouth. Attention should be paid to the correct brushing technique. (short, circular movements over „red to white“)
- Brush sufficiently long after each meal
It is ideal to brush the teeth after every meal. This prevents the formation of bacteria. The process should last three minutes so that all teeth are cleaned. The ingredients of the toothpaste (fluoride) are also a significant factor.
- Clean your toothbrush sufficiently and replace it in time
After brushing, thorough cleaning under cold, clear water is optimal. This prevents the formation of new bacteria. In addition, care must be taken to ensure that the bristles dry as quickly as possible, because this also reduces the bacterial risk.
Replace the toothbrush after three months at the latest. If color changes or deformations of the bristles have already been noticed, they should be disposed of immediately.
