Not all prophylaxis is the same!
We don't just brush your teeth.
Saluto-genesis (lat. salus 'health', 'well-being' and -genesis, i.e. roughly "health emergence") describes the issues that lead to the emergence and maintenance of health. In comparison to pathogenesis, which describes the science of the development of diseases.
For most patients, Saluto prophylaxis is a completely new experience. It is a very gentle cleaning of your teeth. This treatment is effective and does not hurt.
The main goal is the complete removal of the bacteria that are the cause of tartar, caries and gum disease (periodontosis).
As a pleasant side effect, your teeth become clean. Discolourations caused by coffee, tea, smoking or similar are removed. Ultrasound - or so-called airflow devices can be very effective for discolourations when used for the first time, but they are far more invasive and are rarely used by us in this respect.
During the cleaning, we recognise the areas that are at risk for dental diseases because they have not been cleaned sufficiently so far. We use the so-called Saluto index to measure your oral health or your risk of caries and periodontal disease. Accordingly, we show and practice with you what you can do to keep these areas healthy in the future.
In contrast to the familiar dental check-up, which only documents existing damage from the past, the Saluto Index can be used to predict the places where tooth damage and/or periodontosis will occur in the future.
We make you aware of the causal connections for your oral health. Your dental IQ increases, because you only see what you know! In our practice you become an enlightened patient.
Hence our name Dental-IQ. Away from repair medicine!
Nobody can keep you healthy, but you learn to keep yourself healthy!
Included in this prevention is the inclusion of your VIT-D levels, as well as the analysis of other micronutrients. What can you do to strengthen your teeth from the inside.
The better you manage, the longer the intervals between your next prevention appointments will be. This approach, which we call Saluto prophylaxis, is fundamentally different from simple so-called "professional" dental cleanings.
We help you to keep yourself healthy -
otherwise the only thing left to do is repair.
Im Sinne der Salutogenese ist der beste Zahnarzt jener, welcher nicht benötigt wird.
