Even in adults, misaligned teeth should be treated for medical reasons. Especially if the misalignment has already led to excessive wear of healthy teeth, if the aesthetics or dental hygiene are suffering from the misalignment or if it’s causing jaw muscle tension, head and neck pain or snoring. In addition, TMJ (temporo-mandibular-joint) disorders are a serious entity which can cause pain and damage to anatomic structures and function.
Our trained dental hygienists are in charge of professional oral hygiene on site in our dental practice. They will remove normal plaque, stains (such as discoloration due to stimulants) and tartar, especially in those areas that you find difficult to clean. Thus contributing to better gum health and fighting periodontal disease. Every dental hygenic session concludes with a check-up by a dentist of the team.
In most cases, dental injuries happen to children, but adults can also suffer from oral or dental injuries as a result of sports or road accidents. These injuries aren’t always recognizable after a significant impact or pressure on the tooth. For medical and legal reasons, it is necessary to be seen by a dentist after an injury – some negative effects of the trauma, such as hairline fractures or late infections due to loss of tooth vitality can sometimes only be identified after a significant time. That’s the reason why the full extent of the damage can require lifelong recall and therapy. Especially with third-party involvement, correct documentation and notification of both police and insurance are of absolute importance. If teeth get knocked out of the jaw, prevention of exsiccation (drying out) and fast replantation might save the tooth. Transportation to the dentist is optimal in so-called tooth boxes with special hydrating solutions.
