Argo: Wellness for your teeth! “Get a Smile”.

The daily home care is not sufficient to remove all the tartar (plaque) – it especially difficult in the interdental space and the gingival margin (GM).Did you know that in 1mg plaque you can find up to 250 million germs. The metabolic products of these germs cause cavity and inflammation of the gingiva. If you do not treat your gingiva it will turn into periodontitis (periodontal apparatus disorder).

And: because plaque and tooth discoloration are not only a visual macule, you are at the same time also doing something good for your tooth care.

Does the usual tooth brushing become less important thanks to PCR?

No, the usual tooth brushing is and stays essential and is the most self-reliant contribution to prophylaxis.

How does PCR differ to the scrape of tartar?

When scraping the tartar only the mineralised and petrous plaque will be removed.

The PCR however, goes much deeper. PCR will ensure that all bacterial plaque will be gone. Also discolorations from coffee, tea or cigarettes will be removed by the usage of a powder beam ray.
The tooth cleansing programme is more intense, detailed and overall more effective than the normal removal of the plaque. The dental enamel and the gingiva will not be stressed.

How often should PCR be performed?

Scientific investigations have proven that a PCR should be performed every six months, which is the perfect supplement to a healthy dental care. But do to individual risks to contract diseases other time intervals may be useful.

In our opinion the status of a prophylaxis is still resided low. Many people think that only dentures are allowed to cost money. The costs for a prophylaxis depend on the effort and the time investment.

 

At what age is it reasonable to pursue PCR?

It is suggestive to already bring your children to PCR treatments. If the risk of getting cavity is high and when no self- reliant oral home care can be established.
The earlier you start, the better are the chances of not getting cavity.

Is the use of PCR scientifically proven?

Yes, the efficiency of PCR is scientifically proven. With this method and the usage of fluoric preparation, cavity and periodontitis can be forestalled.
Experts from the federal dental organisation are stating that in relation with a good home care the PCT can be viewed as “an effective and reasonable prophylactic measure”.
