Caries is a disease of the teeth. Bacteria in dental plaque decompose tiny components of food residues and form acids. These attack the tooth substance and lead to holes in the enamel if oral hygiene is inadequate.

Causes: How caries develops

Even though enamel is the hardest material in the body, it is not indestructible. There are three main risk factors for tooth decay: frequent sugar consumption, poor oral hygiene and plaque. Plaque is the ideal breeding ground for caries-forming bacteria (especially streptococcus mutans and lactobacilli). If they decompose the food residues and the contained sugar, acids are formed as a waste product. These attack the tooth enamel and lead in the first step to a decalcification of the weakened tooth surface. The affected area shows a light whitish colour and offers the bacteria an additional surface of attack. Without adequate dental care, the enamel becomes softer and softer. Eventually a small hole forms. This must be drilled out by the dentist and provided with a filling. If this does not happen, the caries eats through the tooth crown to the tooth root and finally destroys the dentin bone and the tooth nerve.

For villas without a boat it is advisable to rent a boat. There are also many German providers who then drive the boat directly in front of the house.

The Aphantasia is a special form of visual agnosia and corresponds to the complete inability to voluntarily retrieve visual images. The clinical picture probably goes back to brain defects. Therapies do not exist so far.

What is Aphantasia?

The subconscious and the consciousness of man work on mental pictures. Visualization is a basic process of cognition. Cognitive visualization processes arise through a network of different brain regions, mainly through the areas of the parietal, frontal, temporal and occipital lobes. For cognitive visualization stored memories are crucial, the corresponding images call to consciousness.

Cheap Maryland Bridge - save money with

Maryland Bridge

A Maryland bridge (also known as an adhesive bridge or adhesive bridge) is a fixed bridge that can be used to replace single missing teeth in the upper or lower jaw. The Maryland Bridge belongs to the group of fixed dentures and is glued to the lateral abutment teeth with a special fixation plastic. The Maryland Bridge itself consists of a metal or ceramic framework, which is attached to the abutment teeth with one or two wings at the back. In the field of vision (anterior or canine teeth), a Maryland Bridge can be veneered in a tooth-colored color, so that it is not obvious from the outside that it is a fixed denture and not the patient’s real teeth.

First visit

The first appointment is purely an acquaintance appointment. In the first appointment we will usually “only” count the teeth. In this way your child will have confidence in us.

Preparation at home

You can prepare your child at home. You will help us to give your child a positive attitude. You can do many things with your mouth: laugh, talk, eat and kiss. Make your child aware that it is quite normal to deal with the mouth.

You will help your child a lot by only expressing yourself positively about your visit to the dentist.
