The path to a nice and healthy set of teeth an entire life long requires systematic care and attention.

Prophylaxis is the most important branch of dentistry. Disregarding these, merits all other measures as senseless. The biotope of the oral cavity influences one's general well-being far more than is acknowledged or accepted. The mouth acts as the absorber of nutrients and enables us speech, feelings are expressed through it. In addition to being a prop to the lips and cheeks, the teeth are of great importance to the appearance of the face. Healthy teeth are a gift, underlining the feeling of general health.

Teeth and gums fallen ill are not hard to come by. A large percentage of the population is affected by oral diseases. Nevertheless, dentists can help to prevent the slow and often painful damage of teeth and the surrounding tissue. There are few aspects of dentistry that are as effective and indisputable as the measures of prevention. Following long-standing experience with prophylaxis and founded on the results of international research, dentists can offer a program of prevention which is successful when consequently followed through. Thus treatments for existing damages in tooth and gums are only sensible if an intensive, organized and controlled prophylaxis is pursued.
