Dental care (Prophylaxis)
At Snö, we follow a holistic approach to dentistry to ensure your long-term health and beauty. We prefer to prevent dental problems over fixing them. The first step to dental health is awareness of proven dental hygiene routines and knowledge of how and when to use them. The Snö team will be happy to guide you.
Dental hygiene begins with the very first teeth in childhood and remains important throughout our lives. At Snö, we teach parents and children how to take care of kids’ teeth. We also give parents tips on how to motivate children to clean their teeth on a daily basis. Do not hesitate to consult the Snö team on any questions related to dental hygiene like the right toothbrush (electric or manual), how to protect your teeth from sports accidents or excessive tooth wear, or what and how (not) to eat to prevent caries and other dental problems.
Of course, the Snö team will also support you with direct hygiene services.
Our specialised dental hygienists will perform a thorough cleaning every 6-12 months to give you a solid foundation for your daily routine.
A Snö hygienist will also do a short exam to assess the current state of your dental health and then carefully work tooth by tooth to remove calculus and plaque before polishing your teeth. You will also receive personalised instruction on how to brush and floss your teeth. A routine cleaning typically takes an hour.
To prevent caries, we usually recommend a fluoride treatment after each cleaning. The fluoride treatment is of special importance for our youngest patients to protect their beautiful, but slightly softer teeth.
To prevent excessive tooth wear, Snö offers mouth guards™ or sports guards™. All the appliances will be tailored to your specific needs by our own dental laboratory. The Snö team will make sure that the mouth guard™ fits your teeth and will teach you how to use it.
