Child-friendly treatment

Important for both children and adults: a regular check up by the dentist can prevent most damage to the teeth and the gums. As a dentist practice, it is our goal, to ensure dental health for a lifetime by appropriate training in dental hygiene und explaining correlations between sugar, acid and bacteria.

Almost all people are affected by dental caries (cavities) or periodontal disease (gum disease). They are the most common bacterial infectious diseases, which are transmitted directly through contact with saliva. Caries bacteria are usually transmitted from mother and father to the infant. In our modern industrial society, more than 90% of the population is „infected“ with caries or periodontal disease.

Individual prophylaxis for children:

  • Clinical examination:
    Examination of teeth and gums
  • Explanation:
    Teaching about correlation of the development of caries and periodontal disease, importance of dental plaque and the effects of acidic foods and sugar.
  • Control and reconsideration:
    In order to improve your child ’s dental care, your child will be remotivated by coloring plaque and a demonstration of different tooth brushing techniques.
  • Fluoridation of teeth:
    To protect the tooth enamel against acid and decay, the dentist hardens the tooth surface by local fluoridation. Here there are various possibilities, for example gel or similar substances.
  • Fissure sealing of the molars:
    Tooth decay on the occlusal surfaces of molars is the most common disease of the teeth in children. Deep pits and fissures offer good retention for food particles and bacteria and thus can cause tooth decay, as the cleaning of the teeth at these sites is often difficult. It is scientifically proven that the sealing of these teeth ( fissure sealing ) by the dentist is useful and extremely effective.
  • Costs:
    for children and adolescents up to age 18 individual prophylaxis is subsidized by public and private health insurances. This measure can be repeated annually until turning 18.


Studies show that children of mothers who perceived their regular prophylaxis during pregnancy, less prone to pregnancy gingivitis (gum disease during pregnancy) and preterm birth . The risk of caries in children is markedly reduced too, because there will be fewer bacteria transferred to the children. Because tooth decay is a pure infectious disease!
Therefore, avoid all possible paths of caries – transmission (eg pacifiers or spoon licking, etc.)

Be a role model and bring your child with you on a regular basis for the annual checkup. So the child will get easily used to the „new“ environment of a dental practice.

Pay attention to the nutrition of your children: For example, rather give an unsweetened tea as apple juice in the bottle.

Brush your children’s teeth starting with the first tooth! Initially, it is sufficient to rub off plaque with a small toothbrush or a cotton swab and fluoride toothpaste. Beginning at the age of 2 to 3, you should practice with your children brushing your teeth 2 times a day together.
