As your dental practice in Mainz, it is our goal to keep your natural teeth healthy for as long as possible. That is why we attach great importance to regular and individual preventive care and offer you a wide range of services combined with the highest quality. Successful prophylaxis is based on two pillars: very good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups. At our dental practice in Mainz, Dr. Blume, you will therefore receive thorough training in oral hygiene at home. So that you are able to establish the correct care of your teeth or dental prosthesis at home. But only regular prophylaxis appointments – we recommend at least twice a year – enable us to protect you permanently against bacterial attacks and diseases.
On the following pages you can inform yourself about our extensive prophylaxis program for young and old – together we are a strong team and take care of your most beautiful smile, for life.
PZR (Professional dental cleaning)
Even with the most exemplary oral hygiene and dental care, bacterial plaque develops over time on tooth surfaces that are difficult to reach. Your dentist, Dr. Maximilian Blume, recommends that you have your teeth professionally cleaned twice a year. First, tartar and plaque are removed. After cleaning, the teeth are polished, which smoothes the transition to fillings and dental prostheses as well as the teeth themselves, while the final fluoridation strengthens the enamel.
All these measures protect you from bacterial attacks, which considerably reduces the risk of tooth decay or gingivitis. If deeper gum pockets have already formed, the scaler normally used for periodontal therapy is used. This enables us to gently remove deposits even below the gingival margin. In addition, we advise you individually on all questions of oral hygiene. It is important for your dental practice in Mainz that you feel completely comfortable; an individual and regular prophylaxis as part of professional tooth cleaning is an absolute must.
PZR for children and adolescents
The well-being of your child is just as important to us as it is to you. In the field of dental health, we therefore attach great importance to preventing possible oral diseases of your child through regular check-ups – at least twice a year.
Already at the age of nine months the first teeth appear in the mouth of your child. However, it is not possible for a child to brush his or her own teeth until he or she reaches primary school age, which is why you should take care of dental care until then. We will be happy to advise you on all questions of tooth brushing techniques and aids. By visiting us, your child should also be playfully accustomed to regular dental appointments.
Preventive check-ups enable us to detect oral diseases and plaster deficits at an early stage. As long as there are still problems with cleaning, you as parents should continue to support your child in daily oral hygiene. In addition to the preventive program, you can seal the fissures of the young permanent and still very susceptible teeth and strengthen them with fluoridation. Often, adolescents also require orthodontic treatment, which involves a special need for dental care. Your dental practice Dr. Blume recommends the specially coordinated programme of individual prophylaxis and professional tooth cleaning.
Scientific studies have shown that germs from the oral cavity not only affect oral health, but also have a great influence on many internal diseases. It has been shown, for example, that a pronounced periodontitis is twice as likely to cause coronary artery disease. Regular dental check-ups benefit you and protect you holistically against serious diseases.
Our prophylaxis services include the program for the 50+ generation, which we highly recommend as your dental practice Mainz Dr. Blume, because teeth and gums are more at risk with increasing age. The primary purpose of these measures is to preserve your natural teeth or dentures, to detect the first signs of periodontitis and to prevent root caries.
We live up to our claim of always offering you individual solutions, for example, by discussing and treating the possible consequences of taking medication with you.
Your lifelong health is very important to us – we want to contribute to this with regular precautions tailored to your needs and help you to enjoy life more.
For pregnancy, dear patients, we recommend a close-meshed and intensive prophylaxis programme. We will give you a few reasons why this makes sense: Hormonal fluctuations occur during pregnancy, and nausea, vomiting or gestational diabetes often occur. The result is an increased risk of developing caries, gingivitis or periodontitis. The latter in particular can have serious consequences in advanced stages. However, if it is recognised in good time, your dental practice at Mainz Dr. Blume can treat it well.
We also recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned to minimise the risk of infection with the child’s tooth decay through contact with your saliva.
With regular prophylaxis and professional tooth cleaning, you not only protect your own dental health, but can also take care of your child’s oral health long before the first teeth. If you have any questions about your protection and that of your unborn child, please contact your Dr. Blume practice in Mainz.
Bad Breath Consultation Hour
The topic of bad breath, medically halitosis, does not have to be a taboo topic for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us. It is often easier to correct the causes than expected because they are not – as is often assumed – in the stomach, but in the mouth. You don’t need to be uncomfortable, as many people have problems cleaning areas that are difficult to access (interdental spaces, tongue, gum pockets) in such a way that the malodorous sulphur compounds caused by bacteria cannot form. The toothbrush alone is not enough for daily oral hygiene.
In order to live up to our high standards of consultation and to facilitate a trusting relationship, your dentist, Dr. Blume at Mainz, has developed an empathetic programme that will make you feel at home. Starting with a thorough initial examination, professional cleaning by our empathic practice team and state-of-the-art methods, through to training and tips for home care – all these measures will soon help you to enjoy life to the full again, carefree and fresh.
Accompanying periodontal treatment
We work holistically and sustainably – therefore it belongs to the preventive examination in your practice Dr. Blume not only to examine the teeth, but also the thorough examination of the periodontium for possible indications of periodontitis. As a preventive measure, we offer you professional tooth cleaning as part of this prophylaxis; if signs of periodontitis are discovered, we immediately initiate a highly efficient periodontitis therapy, which not only aims to combat the existing inflammation, but also prevents the disease from spreading to other teeth.
You may wonder what periodontitis is. This is a disease in which gum inflammation caused by bacteria occurs first. If left untreated, it can have serious consequences for your oral health and overall well-being. This is because if the inflammation spreads to the entire tooth bed, bad breath and the loss of one or more teeth often occur in addition to bleeding gums.
The team at your dental practice in Mainz Dr. Blume will be happy to advise you on all questions of periodontitis prevention and therapy – contact us, because your lifelong oral health is particularly important to us.
As your dental practice Mainz Dr. Maximilian Blume with well-founded experience in the field of implantology, we know the great importance of prophylaxis for you as an implant patient.
Implant patients are particularly susceptible to diseases of the gums because the cells present in natural teeth that prevent bacteria from penetrating are missing. In order to compensate for this, particularly conscientious oral hygiene at home and regular prophylaxis by your dentist are absolutely necessary.
With us you are in good and competent hands – you receive the necessary professional tooth cleaning, which not only contributes to your health, but also to the longevity of the implant. Through regular, low-radiation X-ray controls, it is also possible for us to detect the possible bone degradation at an early stage. In this way we achieve together that you can smile with your implants for a long time.
As part of our prophylaxis, we also offer you the cleaning of prostheses. Because your dental practice Mainz Dr. Blume recommends not only home care of the prosthesis but also thorough cleaning every six months. As the prosthesis is exposed to the same bacterial environment in the mouth as natural teeth, tartar and plaque as well as discolouration also form here. Professional regular cleaning not only removes bacterial plaque, but also removes any small damage and polishes the denture. Even unaesthetic discolorations caused by coffee, tea or nicotine disappear.
