In the practice, professional teeth cleaning is not some treatment that you can change any time, but you can take a few measures at home to clean your teeth and gums almost like at the dentist. Find out here how you can clean your teeth yourself in a few simple steps and bridge the time until the next professional tooth cleaning.
These brushing routines will keep your teeth shiny
To clean your teeth well, you must brush your teeth at least twice a day for two to three minutes with a fluoride-containing toothpaste. Dentists also recommend cleaning the interdental spaces with dental floss or an interdental brush once a day. A mouthwash containing fluoride can also prevent the formation of new plaque and strengthen the tooth enamel. We also recommend you clean your tongue daily. You should do this cleaning with a toothbrush or with a tongue cleaner. You can also apply a special fluoride gel once a week after brushing your teeth.

The removal of discoloration
The discoloration on your teeth bothers you. We recommend that you do not remove the discoloration on your own by using so-called “home remedies”. For example, remedies such as baking powder, salt, and lemon juice can roughen the surface of the teeth. This will make your teeth whiter for a brief time, but also rough.
So do not focus on your discoloration, but on removing the soft plaque on your teeth regularly. This is because bacteria live in the plaque that attacks tooth enamel and gums and cause tooth decay. Discolorations do not look beautiful but are usually harmless.
Professional teeth cleaning cannot be replaced in the long term
Good dental care in your own bathroom is the basis for healthy teeth, but it cannot replace prophylaxis at the dentist in the long term.
On the one hand, there are always areas that you as a patient cannot reach yourself, and patients who suffer from periodontitis or other diseases of the gums, for example, should use a PZR as soon as possible after the crisis to prevent the disease from progressing.
