Comments on the discussion to the school dentist discussions about the meaning of or participation obligations of dental studies at the school dentist sometimes arise. In fact is still a catastrophic situation in terms of dental health in Germany: today existing possibilities, in old age to be able to get the teeth, without prejudice to it simply lack early comprehensive prevention belongs also a regular thorough control. It is an essential part of education, for example to point out the importance of healthy teeth: teeth are the \”business card\” of the people and as such is very important for the public appearance. Healthy teeth must not necessarily be condemned as exaggerated cult of the body, but can also be signs of virtuous health awareness as well as serve as a mandatory endorsement of a healthy society. The consequences of damage to teeth can be very versatile and very serious. In direct Form and thus inarguably are of course the toothache, if necessary high dental costs and possibly tooth loss, with consequent possible permanent disadvantages when eating, speaking, etc. But other relationships are already likely or even clear proof; such as hair loss, back pain, digestive disorders and spinal damage can be due to inadequate dental care.
So, the awareness of the benefits of good teeth or the disadvantages of poor teeth must prevail in the society. Even if there are different positions with regard to some specific questions to the dental care, to crystallize a certain consensus seems still some basic recommendations such as: after dinner, the mouth should immediately and thoroughly with water flushed, maybe also dental care gum can be; chewed approx. 30 to 60 min after the meal, the teeth should be cleaned then. The teeth should not be under continuous load. Who wants to eat such as sugary, which should not be this unnecessarily spread over the longer term, but do in quietly, but just without major disruption.
