2. Treatment children
At what age should children go to the dentist?
You can make the first check-up appointment for your child from the age of six months. Our goal is to educate you in the best possible way about a tooth-healthy diet and the correct brushing technique and to explain the visit to the dentist to your child in a playful way.
Can children have their teeth professionally cleaned?
Yes, from the age of four, a gentle polishing of the milk teeth can remove the first plaque and teach your child the correct tooth brushing technique. From the age of six, the statutory health insurance will pay for your child's teeth to be cleaned twice a year.
Does every child need braces?
No, but it makes sense to have your child examined by an experienced orthodontist from the age of about four. We will be happy to advise you on this.
I am pregnant, should I make an appointment?
Yes, during pregnancy you are prone to bleeding gums (gingivitis) due to the change in hormones. Bleeding gums are not to be underestimated, but can be a real danger to your unborn baby. It has been linked to premature births. Therefore, it is important to clean your teeth properly during this time. We recommend that you have your teeth professionally cleaned.
