Our practice offers a wide range of oral surgical procedures, including the placement of implants.

With all treatments, we desire, through expertise, caution and with modern surgical methods, that an operation should not only be successful, but be also pleasant, gentle and as painless as possible for you. This is as important to us as the medical success of the treatment itself.

For example, we use tissue-sparing, minimally invasive Piezosurgery® (ultrasound surgery) for treatments on the jawbone.


Preserving your teeth is our top priority. However, there are situations wherein tooth preservation is no longer possible or sensible and the tooth must be extracted. If this is the case, we use modern, gentle methods. In this way, discomfort or pain after the procedure can be reduced or avoided altogether.

In the case of wisdom teeth, a removal is necessary if these teeth cause problems or if future negative consequences such as lack of space, pain, cyst formation or abscesses are already foreseeable.

Exposure is necessary when a tooth (often a canine tooth) would remain completely in the jawbone or grow out at an angle.

During exposure, soft tissue and possibly some of the jawbone is removed. This is followed by orthodontic treatment to integrate the tooth into the dentition. So tooth removal is not always necessary for these teeth.

Tooth exposure is also sometimes performed to prevent the development of inflammation or cysts.

The purpose of a root canal treatment is to eliminate an inflammation inside the tooth (the “tooth nerve”) or in the area of the root tip. However, this is not always successful, even with the most careful execution.

In these cases, the tooth can still be preserved in many cases with the help of an apicoectomy. To do this, we slightly cap the root tip and remove inflamed tissue in the surrounding jawbone.

If these frenulum are too tight or too deep, it can lead to the following medical problems:

  • They then often “pull out” at the gums and, in the long run, lead to receding gums or a gap between the incisors. In children, this can disrupt the formation of sounds.
  • Due to their movement when opening and closing the mouth, a narrow gap can form between the tooth and the gum, into which bacteria can penetrate more easily. This favors the development of periodontitis.

A minor surgical procedure can be performed to shorten or remove these bands.

Crown lengthening is often used to visually lengthen the crowns of teeth when almost only gums are visible when laughing (“gummy smile”).

Other possible reasons for the treatment:

  • Teeth are too short to accommodate dentures.
  • The distance between the crown margin and the jawbone is too small. This leads to constant irritation of the tissue and chronic inflammation.

Surgical crown lengthening involves removing a small amount of jawbone around the root of the tooth.
