With all the advances in dentures and implantology, natural teeth are still the best solution for a fully functional and beautiful dentition.

That is why, in our practice, we do everything we can to preserve your teeth for as long as possible. In this way, we also help you in many cases to avoid costly and time-consuming treatments.

Amalgam-free, tooth-colored fillings and inlays:
Our practice has not set any kind of amalgam for years. Instead, we use inconspicuous and mouth-compatible multi-layer composite fillings and natural-looking, high-quality ceramic inlays. The right type of restoration is available for every dental situation.

Veneers are wafer-thin ceramic veneers for the aesthetic correction of incisors and canines. Their shade and shape can be adapted very precisely to the surrounding teeth and they are very durable. They are stably bonded to the front teeth using modern adhesive technology.

Veneers can be used to correct small gaps in the front teeth, broken corners, slight misalignments and stubborn tooth discoloration.

Root canal treatment is the only way to preserve a tooth with an inflamed or dead “nerve”. The less favorable alternative would be tooth removal.

Special procedures for tooth preservation:
Treatment requires experience and modern procedures because root canals are often hair-thin and have protrusions, narrowing and branching – especially toward the root tip.

To increase the chances of success, we therefore use modern methods and technical aids:

  • For more precise work and finding even fine canals, we use magnifying glasses.
  • We cover the tooth to be treated with a rubber dam to protect it from bacteria in the oral cavity.
  • For the most effective cleaning and preparation of the canals, we use an electronic root length measuring device and mechanical instruments. Thanks to our device with highly flexible, reciprocally (back and forth) rotating nickel-titanium filings, we often succeed in efficiently treating even difficultly curved root canals.

If the inflammation does not heal despite careful root canal treatment, it can be repeated (revision treatment). Only then, if necessary, is an apicoectomy indicated.

Periodontitis should not be confused with a simple inflammation of the gums. Rather, it is a chronic inflammation of the periodontal apparatus. The cause is bacterial plaque, especially around the gum-line.

If periodontitis is not treated, it can also result to jawbone damages, thus jeopardizing the hold of the teeth. In addition, periodontitis can have a negative impact on general health: It favors cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, as well as an increased risk of premature birth.

Gentle ultrasound treatment:
As a chronic disease, periodontitis cannot be “remedied” in the strict sense. However, it is possible to halt or stop it. This requires systematic gum pocket cleaning: Soft and hard plaque (concrements) as well as bacteria are thoroughly removed. Our specialty: with the help of ultrasonic instruments, we carry out the treatment more efficiently, more gently and more pleasantly for you.

Important – regular prophylaxis:
In order to maintain the success of the treatment, regular check-ups and professional dental cleanings at individually determined intervals (usually three to six months) are also necessary afterwards – because as a chronic disease, periodontitis can always recur.

In addition, your own careful dental care (with toothbrush and interdental brush) is immensely important for the preservation of your teeth.
