The prophylaxis is precisely important for children, especially if the first remaining teeth have come. The statuary health insurance takes over the children prophylaxis twice a year between the sixth and 18th year of age. The aim of the child prophylaxis is to introduce children to tooth brushing in a playful manner and to develop tooth consciousness at an early stage. During prophylaxis, the teeth are dyed. This way, possibly existing weak points can easily be demonstrated during brushing. Subsequently, the teeth are cleaned and the child's brushing technique explained individually. Finally, the teeth are hardened through a fluoride varnish and thus protected against caries.
