Dental hygiene / Professional teeth cleaning



Professional teeth cleaning (depending on effort) = 150 – 250 CHF


Unfortunately, even with the best brushing technique and conscientious use of dental floss, you can't always get into all the nooks and crannies. It is precisely in these places that small food residues and saliva components tend to settle and, over time, lead to dental plaque (plaque) - a lively accumulation of bacteria that excrete acid and cell toxins and promote tooth decay and periodontal disease (which is properly called periodontitis). If the plaque persists for a long time, it also hardens. The resulting tartar can then no longer be removed by brushing your teeth alone. This is exactly where your dentist's tried and tested dental hygiene comes into play.
In addition to the thorough removal of plaque and tartar, professional teeth cleaning also includes prophylaxis, including teeth straightening and the application of fluoride varnish, so that teeth and gums remain protected from tooth decay long after the visit to the dentist.

According to scientific studies, professional teeth cleaning every 6 months has proven to be effective as a preventive measure. So you can easily combine it with the six-monthly checkup at the dentist. If you are prone to caries, have previous periodontal damage or are wearing braces, a more frequent dental hygiene routine may also make sense. Professional tooth cleaning (PZR) is also necessary before bleaching, otherwise dental plaque will counteract bleaching and normal oral hygiene is not sufficient preparation.
