When does tooth position correction make sense??

Adults love aligners: there are many options for correcting tooth positions that go hand in hand with high aesthetic demands in the context of orthodontic treatment. Old childhood memories are a thing of the past: In the past, all brackets or braces were pink and also on "such a rack around your head" some adults have bad memories. These reservations are now unfounded. thanks aesthetic materials and low forces, it is possible to treat misaligned teeth today into adulthood – without aesthetic disadvantages.

dental caries

Dental caries is one of the most common causes of toothache and jaw pain. If a small particle of food is deposited in the caries, it causes sharp pain.

The thick enamel and dentin form the two outer layers of a tooth.
An injury to these two layers is called "dental caries".

This lack of necessary minerals is called demineralization and occurs mainly due to the presence of acids on the teeth.

Caries occurs primarily on the molars and premolars, but is less common in the lateral incisors.
One should not forget that a sealed tooth can develop tooth decay as well as a healthy one.
A decrease in gums can expose the tooth root. Caries at this height is called root caries.

Gum treatment in Essen


How important the gums are for a beautiful smile can often only be seen when the first signs of gingivitis appear: redness, bleeding and finally a decrease in gums are the result. Too little gum is often a sign of illness. The culprits are bacteria that hide in the gum pockets. Gentle medical gum treatment combined with regular professional tooth cleaning (PZR) can help. The method is also considered the best preventive measure against periodontitis, often incorrectly referred to as periodontitis. It is the most important option for periodontitis treatment.

Professional gum treatment (periodontology)

Every third person in Germany suffers from periodontitis. Anyone who suffers from this has to fight with an inflammation of the tooth-holding apparatus – also called periodontium. This spreads from the gumline to the tooth cement and the root skin and is a common cause of tooth loss, especially as we age.

What is periodontitis?

Periodontitis usually progresses slowly and initially does not cause pain. Periodontitis only becomes noticeable with the appearance of regular bleeding gums, reddening and swelling of the gum tissue and unpleasant bad breath. As a result, there are so-called gum pockets, which may secrete secretions. This can lead to loosening and ultimately loss of teeth, which can only be compensated for by dentures. These pockets go hand in hand with a decrease in gums and sensitive tooth necks, but a change in the tooth position can also be the result. Periodontitis can progress chronically (gradually) or aggressively (within a few weeks).

Gum treatment what can you do?

Seal your gums from the inside. They close the gateway for viruses, germs and bacteria.

A Gum treatment is carried out when the first signs of gingivitis or periodontitis are already present. The aim of the treatment is tooth preservation and the Decimation of the bacteria, which are responsible for the gum inflammation. For those affected, the announcement of an upcoming gum treatment is often sheer horror. The reason for this is the horror stories that others tell. Nobody claims that periodontal treatment is comfortable, but you shouldn’t let it stop you because of the scary stories if you are concerned. It is in your own interest. That being said, thanks to the latest technologies, it is nowhere near as uncomfortable as it was a few years ago.

It is estimated that 350-500 different bacteria live in the mouth. Many of them are harmless, but some can aggressively attack / inflame the gums, called gingivitis. If left untreated, periodontitis can develop. In the case of periodontitis, the tooth holding apparatus is also attacked.

Causes of gum disease

  • No optimal oral hygiene
  • General diseases (e.g. diabetes mellitus)
  • Irritation factors in the mouth (e.g. protruding crown / filling margins)
  • Stress / unbalanced diet
  • Smoking increases the risk of getting sick
  • Genetic factors

Dental bridge: types, treatment and costs

Dental bridge: types, treatment and costs

In the event of tooth loss, the gap between the teeth can be closed using a dental bridge. This denture can be both fixed and removable.

What is a dental bridge?

A dental bridge (short bridge) is a form of artificial denture with which one or more missing teeth are replaced. The adjacent teeth serve as pillars of the bridge, which can be used as removable and fixed dentures. The pillars are prepared like a crown and used for stabilization and fastening. There are individual dental bridges, but also those with several middle parts, which are used when several teeth are missing and need to be replaced. A bridge can close tooth gaps with up to 4 missing teeth. The different types of bridges differ according to the type of fastening and the materials.

Anesthetic treatments are not the norm, but there are patient groups that give the dentist no choice. This is especially true for young children who have problems with multiple teeth. When awake, a renovation would take a very long time and the child would have to be very willing to cooperate. Despite the honest efforts of all those affected, dentists know: Unfortunately, it does not work, and if it does, it works far too rarely. But even patients with physical and mental impairments find it difficult to access relaxed help. For this very reason, incubation anesthesia is seen as the only way to carry out lengthy dental treatment at rest.
