Prevent and protect

Gentilic infections have a cause - dental surface (plaque). If you combat this cause directly by removing the dental plaque and inhibition of the new formation and not only tackle the symptoms, you are well protected.

Thorough cleaning is important - also at home every day

By brushing your teeth twice a day, supplemented by cleaning and rinsing all spaces between your teeth once a day, you prevent the accumulation of bacterial plaque and reduce the overall number of bacteria in the mouth. Antibacterial toothpaste and mouthwash solutions can supplement manual cleaning. It is also important to visit the dentist regularly and have your teeth professionally cleaned.

How do you use dental floss?

At least once a day, preferably before going to bed. By cleaning the dental floss, you can also reach hard -to -reach areas in the interdental spaces that a toothbrush does not reach.

The correct length

The dental floss should be long enough, a total of about 50 centimeters thread.

Clean the upper jaw

Wrap the dental floss around the middle finger and clamp over the thumb so that you have 2 cm to clean.

Clean the lower jaw

Wrap the dental floss around middle fingers, clamp over index finger, clean the lower jaw.

The right tooth cleaning technology

Brush your teeth at least twice a day in the morning and evening. You should make the choice of your toothbrush dependent on the condition of your gums. Ask your dentist for advice.

Cleaning the outdoor areas

Clean the outer surfaces of your upper and then your lower row of teeth. Hold the brush at a 45 ° angle to the gums and brush away from the gums. Clean every tooth thoroughly with short brush movements.

Cleaning the interior areas

First clean the inner surfaces of your upper tooth row, then that of the lower ones. Clean every tooth thoroughly with short brush movements.

Finally: cleaning the buying space

Clean every purchase area thoroughly with short brush movements. And don't forget to clean your tongue either.

Regular dentist visit and prophylaxis

Dentist and dental hygienist can recognize the first signs of gum problems at an early stage. The causes such as dental surface and tartar are also discovered and eliminated during the regular controls at your dentist or as part of professional tooth cleaning.

At the end of the professional teeth cleaning, the tooth surfaces are polished with special pastes and polishing cups. This means plaque can no longer stick as quickly.
