What do we know about prophylaxis?


It is a rule, a creed and a law in dentistry (and in medicine in general) that prevention is always preferable to cure. And the most effective means of preventing dental disease is regular prophylaxis. It sounds boring and repetitive to the point of tedium. But rest assured – at Medical Dent, we’ll keep saying it because we have a common mission – healthy teeth and beautiful smiles.

How to take care of your teeth?

What does dental prophylaxis involve?

Nothing complicated or overwhelming. All that is required is consistency. The goal of prophylaxis is to catch a potential disease or complication in time to prevent it. The ways to do this are well known to you, but – because we promised – we will repeat them.

Regular visits to the dentist

They should be at least once a year if you don’t have any complaints. In case of chronic diseases or increased vulnerability to the development of caries, periodontal problems, etc., prophylaxis in the dental office should be done every six months.

Consultations with specialists

Most patients have a favorite dentist they have known and trusted for years. That’s the way it should be! Sometimes, however, more in-depth knowledge and skills are required when specific diseases develop. Both general and dental medicine have multiple specialties and sub-specialties, and a general dentist might not be sufficiently trained in each. In this situation, it is your right and even duty to seek the opinion and expertise of a qualified specialist in the field. 


Professional help for oral hygiene

Impeccable oral hygiene is the key to preventing most dental diseases. It is essential for the health of your teeth.

So never skip thorough brushing, flossing and mouthwash at least twice a day. However, this is not enough. It is also necessary to involve a specialist in hygiene maintenance who cleans the teeth with professional equipment at least once a year. This prophylaxis prevents the build-up of bacterial plaque and tartar, which often remain undamaged – despite home care. Professional cleanings provide protection for teeth against cavities and pulpitis, for gums against inflammation and periodontitis, and against a range of other dental problems. And on top of all that, regular oral hygiene care gives you clean and smooth teeth, a sparkling smile, fresh breath and a daily sense of comfort.
