GROW OLD WITH YOUR OWN TEETH
Think about caring for the spaces between your teeth early on! Did you know that the spaces between the teeth make up around a third of the tooth surface? Caries bacteria find the best conditions to multiply where it is difficult or impossible for the toothbrush to reach. Depending on the appearance, food particles and bacterial plaque build up in the spaces between the teeth. The consequences are tooth decay, gum disease and bad breath. To a comprehensive dental care strategy that also...READ MORE
Why women have worse teeth than men
As a dentist, I am happy about every patient who comes to my practice with healthy teeth. And this in particular for women, because the burden of the "little difference" in dental health accompanies them all their lives. According to the results of the market research institute YouGov, dental care and oral hygiene are important for 74% of women, compared to only 59% of men. Oral hygiene is very important to 41% of women, while...READ MORE
IS FLUORIDE TOXIC?
Fluoride in small amounts is not toxic to the human body. In fact, fluoride is found in many toothpastes and mouthwashes and has been used successfully to prevent tooth decay for decades. However, in high doses, fluoride can be toxic and lead to a condition called fluorosis. Fluorosis occurs when the body absorbs too much fluoride, causing discoloration and weakness...READ MORE
WHAT IS FLUORIDE
First of all, we have to differentiate between fluorine and fluoride! Fluoride is a natural trace element and occurs everywhere in our environment, for example in water and in many foods. Fluorine, on the other hand, is a poisonous and strong-smelling gas. The similarity of the two terms often leads to uncertainty and misunderstandings. You probably know a similar example from your everyday life: sodium chloride is the chemical...READ MORE
Why should you avoid it?
Parabens are a preservative that make toothpaste last longer and protect it from loss of quality. Although you don't normally swallow toothpaste, its ingredients, which are not always harmless, are still absorbed through the oral mucosa and thus enter the circulatory system particularly quickly. Since most people don't know anything about it, they carelessly brush their mouths with toothpaste several times a day without knowing what it really contains and what...READ MORE
HEALTH ALSO BEGINS IN THE MOUTH
How important is oral health?
Did you know that sick teeth can also make the entire organism sick? Teeth are not an individual, encapsulated unit in our body, but very deeply and closely linked to the rest of the organism. Diseased teeth and inflamed gums can damage the entire body because our teeth are connected to the whole body via nerves and blood vessels. Bacteria and their toxins can...READ MORE

Periodontal disease (or more correctly periodontitis) is a disease of the periodontium, more simply a disease of the tissue that anchors the tooth in the jaw. This disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, ahead of tooth decay. The disease begins with inflammation of the gums, most often due to poor oral hygiene. The inflammation is caused by bacteria that form plaque. They produce excretions which...READ MORE

THE IMPORTANCE OF SALIVA TO ORAL HEALTH
Spit or saliva has a decisive influence on our dental health. How and in what form is the subject of this blog. This multifunctional universal liquid has amazing abilities.

BLEACHING TEETH 2
What to pay attention to?
Some bleaching products on the market, whether for self-application or practice, must not be used on exposed tooth necks. Evaluations of "home solutions" have shown that depending on the duration of use, concentration and acid value, damage to the tooth enamel can occur. Bleaching agents with low pH values and agents with high concentrations of hydrogen peroxide have proven to be particularly problematic. The problem for the user: Damage to the enamel is not immediately noticeable....READ MORE
Tooth erosion is destruction of the tooth surface caused by acid and without the involvement of bacteria. Acids can destroy even the hardest tooth enamel. It is generally believed that sugar is the teeth's greatest enemy, but this is not always the case. Acids can also cause irreparable damage to teeth over time. In addition to the well-known dental diseases such as caries and periodontitis, a new disease of the tooth surface, which has received little attention up to now, is increasingly...READ MORE

Why you can't do without it?

You have the feeling that the leftovers can be removed thoroughly enough with the toothbrush and do not see the need...READ MORE
