Professional teeth cleaning in Frankfurt
No matter how often you brush your teeth, you will never be able to remove all deposits. Some places are difficult to reach with a brush or floss, even if you take plenty of time for daily oral hygiene every morning and evening.
The hard to reach places include the wisdom and molars, but also gum pockets and parts of the interdental spaces. Experts and dentists estimate that you can effectively clean just 60% of your teeth with home-based dental care. In the other places, it will accumulate and harden over time to tartar. And it’s not just that it’s unaesthetic, it also causes disease.
Especially at the gum edge, the pasty substance collects. The mass consists of chewed food leftovers and millions of microorganisms that take up the remains. The mass hardens to tartar. Coffee, tea or tobacco smoke can also dye the deposits brownish – then it looks even more unappetizing. Plaque and tartar are not only unaesthetic.

Dental health and general health related
The goal of modern dentistry is to keep teeth as long as possible. It is tried as long as possible to dispense with dentures and to promote and maintain the dental health with various prophylactic measures as best as possible.
This also includes diseases of the oral cavity, such as tooth decay or periodontal disease, to recognize as early as possible, or to prevent these diseases. In addition to a healthy lifestyle and thorough home-based oral hygiene, professional teeth cleaning is highly recommended for dental health.
As mentioned earlier, you can achieve just 60% of your teeth with home-based dental care. The hard-to-reach areas are unfortunately left out, so that stubborn deposits form, which not only look ugly, but also significantly and negatively affect the health of the teeth.
Dental health has a major impact on overall health and, unfortunately, relationships to diabetes, cardiovascular disease, gastrointestinal disease and lung disease are detected too late or not at all. With the professional cleaning of teeth (PZR) you can thus make an important contribution to the prevention of general medical diseases.
Process of professional dental cleaning (PZR) Frankfurt
In the first step, we first make a general examination of your tooth state. Subsequently, the tartar is loosened and blasted off by means of ultrasound. Mini sandblasters remove paint residue from coffee, tea or tobacco. With special hand instruments, dental floss and small brushes, dirt is also removed from the periodontal pockets and the interdental spaces.
Then the enamel is strengthened and the teeth are sealed using polish and fluoride gel. After about an hour, your teeth are again radiantly clean and smooth. On the clean and smooth surface of the teeth, plaque can now settle worse.
Dentists and experts, and also in our dental practice in Frankfurt am Main, receive the advice twice a year to have a professional tooth cleaning. This period of time has proven itself to prevent dental diseases and / or to recognize and treat dental diseases in good time.
Risk periodontitis – regular prophylaxis pays off
In addition to tooth decay, periodontitis is one of the most common diseases in the dental field. The inflammation of the dental bed is triggered by bacteria that are in the oral cavity and as dental plaque between the teeth.
Unfortunately, periodontitis is usually painless in the early stages and is therefore often recognized and treated too late. The biggest risks include poor dental care and irregular check-ups at your dentist, smoking, improper diet and tartar.
Infecting pathogens into the bloodstream and the tissues may influence the risk of cardiovascular disease and promote a heart attack. Besides these general medical risks, periodontal disease can lead to tooth loss.
In many cases, it is sufficient to thoroughly clean the surface of the teeth and to inform you in detail about the subsequent home-based dental care as a patient or patient. With the treatment of cleaning the tooth surface, the bacteria are eliminated as causes and the inflammation can be stopped. In severe cases, diseased tissue must be removed and the teeth are cleaned up into the gum pockets.
Take over the health insurance, the cost of professional teeth cleaning?
Unfortunately, the statutory health insurance companies do not cover the costs of professional dental cleaning in most cases. However, some health insurance companies offer cost subsidies if you behave healthily and reward you with grants.
The private health insurance companies cover the costs more often, but here too it depends on the individually agreed services. If you have read through the many benefits we have described to you in detail, you will soon discover that professional teeth cleaning pays off for both the aesthetics and the health of your teeth. The cost of dentures in case of tooth loss, are later significantly higher.
Are there any risks that need to be considered??
Critics are always and for everything. In the case of professional teeth cleaning, it has long been claimed that tooth cleaning attacks the teeth. Certainly the used powder blaster can roughen the tooth surface a bit. However, the teeth are then polished and calmed down by the later applied fluoride varnish.
There are no significant risks. Please tell your dentist about blood thinning medications, a pacemaker and artificial heart valves. We also create a detailed anamnesis sheet in our dental practice in Frankfurt am Main and record your state of health.
