Professional tooth cleaning to make your teeth truly clean and healthy. You can find more on professional tooth cleaning under Attractive Smile.
Retain healthy tooth substance and remove diseased substance
Cavities within teeth generally arise from caries. It is important to treat them immediately. We need to prevent any more tooth substance from being destroyed!
First, the diseased region is carefully removed. Then we fill the hole that was created with an appropriate material.
Minimally invasive – aesthetically appealing and conservative
Our procedure is minimally invasive which means that as little is altered as possible. This procedure is done carefully, facilitated by surgical loupes and fine ultrasound instruments.
We make the ceramic inlays ourselves in our practice, according to the Cerec method.
We use a state-of-the-art adhesive technique in our practice: For minor interventions, we use tooth-coloured filling materials (composites).
Cerec stands for (computer-supported) ceramic reconstruction. By using this method, we can create high-quality, aesthetically-pleasing restorations such as inlays, crowns, veneers (ceramic overlays) and implant crowns made entirely of ceramic.
- Exclusively ceramic – this material is biocompatible and metal-free so that there is no annoying sensation of metal within your mouth
- True to nature, translucent like natural teeth
- Time-saving – only a single session is required, and you are not forced to deal with a provisional tooth
- You receive the perfect balance between price and performance
A root treatment involves the conservation of a healthy nerve and the treatment of diseases within the tooth's interior (tooth nerve). The main goal is to heal infected root canals.
We use advanced surgical loupes and tissue-friendly materials. This allows us to clean, fill and close minute cavities within your teeth. Bacterial infections and inflammation resulting from root canal work are treated in this manner.
Even significantly damaged teeth can be preserved over the long term.
Periodontitis can affect an individual tooth, or every tooth within your mouth. It is an inflammatory disease of the periodontium that affects your gums and the roots of your teeth as well as the surrounding bone. It is generally difficult to discern this disease since it is rarely associated with pain. Nevertheless, it arises frequently. Three out of four people suffer from periodontitis at least once in their life.
Nutrition supportive of tooth health and daily oral hygiene prevent diseases of the teeth and gums.
In the face of many problems such as diastemas, a fully edentulous jaw or a free jaw end (one or more teeth missing at the end of the dental arch), implants can be useful.
Before an implantation, we create a precise inventory of the available bone. To do this, we employ advanced medical techniques such as our panoramic x-rays.
We create precisely-fitting partial and full prostheses in the form of removable dentures without the annoying metal brackets of metal prostheses!
Speedy repair of broken or cracked dental prostheses.
There are various reasons why artificial dentition may be required. Depending on the situation, there are various forms of artificial dentition:
- Partial prostheses
We remove wisdom teeth, treat cysts and perform root canals.
Wisdom tooth removal
A tooth is considered retained if it only partially breaks through the jawbone in the oral cavity or even remains entirely hidden. This is identifiable when only part or one-half of the natural tooth crown is visible within the mouth, a situation that frequently occurs with wisdom teeth and the upper canines.
In most cases, the cause of tooth retention is lack of space. Occasionally, tumours, infections, tooth adhesion or post-traumatic conditions are the trigger.
Since retained teeth are frequently associated with pathological symptoms, a thorough examination is required.
One consequence of retention is the formation of cysts on these teeth. Another tooth could also be impaired by the retained tooth. This frequently results in unsightly tooth displacement.
Furthermore, it often causes acute infections. The symptoms of these infections are, for example, difficulty swallowing, reddening, swelling or oral pain. Inflammation of the tooth nerve can also occur. Infections must be treated by a dentist (for example by rinsing or drainage).
The orthodontic treatment can involve either exposing or removing the tooth. If it is exposed, this should be done before the patient reaches his or her 25th birthday since alignment after this time is nearly impossible. Over the course of time, the retained tooth becomes embedded in the jaw bone.
Root tip resection
When there is chronic inflammation in the area of the root tip, generally a root tip resection is necessary. This treatment is used to save the diseased tooth. The chances of success vary depending on the size and location of the inflammation. Frequently, the tooth can be retained for the long-term.
During surgery, the root tip is completely removed, and the surrounding tissue is scraped out.
A root tip resection makes it possible to seal the root canal with a filling against bacteria. The filling material consists of posts made of gutta-percha together with a hardening root filler based on artificial resin.
Laser treatments are used both during and after surgery. They accelerate the healing process, reduce swelling after surgery, prevent pain and kill bacteria.
Our soft laser promotes circulation and helps restore the tissue. Depending on the exposure time and frequency of treatments, germs (fungi, viruses and bacteria) are also killed. A laser is therefore highly recommendable during periodontal surgery.
A laser can also be used in the following therapies: Root treatments, middle ear inflammation, bleaching, temporomandibular joint diseases, nerve inflammation, ulcers (injury to the gum), cold sores and prosthesis pressure points.
X-rays are almost always required for diagnosis and planning therapy. You can benefit from our digital x-ray:
- Minimum exposure to radiation (80% less than conventional x-rays)
- Quick availability of the x-rays (visible within a matter of seconds)
- Image processing (such as enlargement, minimization, rotation, etc.)
- No pollution from development chemicals
