My Treatment Concept

Dental surgery

Pfeil

All conditions pertaining to the entire spectrum of dental surgery from abscesses to cysts are treated by using gentle techniques and well-practiced procedures.

  • Tooth extraction
    - Wisdom teeth
    - Impacted teeth
    - Root debris
    - Milk teeth
  • Surgical tooth preservation
    - Apicoectomy (root tip resection)
    - Removal of maxillary cysts
    - Hemisection, Trisection
    - Tooth transplantation

Dental implants

Pfeil

For an implant-borne fixed or removable dental implant we use one of the leading implant systems in the world. If necessary we prepare a computer-assisted treatment plan prior to placement of the implant.

Jaw augmentation

Pfeil

When there is too little bone for a dental implant, bone augmentation can be performed by using the patient’s own bone or in combination with bone substitute material.

Gingival atrophy (gum loss)

Pfeil

A few or several exposed necks of teeth can be covered with a free connective tissue graft, using a minimally invasive tunneling technique.

Periodontitis

Pfeil

Surgical treatment of an inflamed periodontium (structures surrounding and supporting the teeth) should be performed when the patient has not responded satisfactorily to conservative treatment. It includes open root planing under direct viewing and, if necessary, restorative surgical measures or resection.

Rhinoplasty (Nose correction)

Pfeil

The profile, shape and size of the nose can be adjusted individually in patients with a trauma-related hooked or crooked nose, functional limitations, or a cleft lip and palate.

Mandibular joint

Pfeil

In most cases, complaints in the mandibular joint can be treated with targeted conservative measures after performing a careful investigation. Usually it is necessary to perform surgery on the mandibular joint despite conservative treatment.

Malposition of the jaw

Pfeil

Depending on the need for correction, the maxilla or upper jaw (Le Fort-I osteotomy), the mandible or lower jaw (bilateral sagittal split osteotomy), or both tooth-bearing portions of the jaw will be mobilized, positioned correctly in three dimensions, and fixed again.

Jaw distraction

Pfeil

In persons with a very small or narrow jaw, a fracture gap is created surgically and an apparatus (distractor) is used to bring the respective portion of the jaw into the desired position.

Profile correction

Pfeil

By performing a chin wing osteotomy, a person’s profile can be improved in cases of mandibular asymmetry, a receding chin, or a markedly protruding chin.

Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome

Pfeil

Depending on the severity and cause, a variety of treatments may be recommended. A tooth-borne mandibular protrusion splint is a form of conservative therapy. Orthognathic surgery is a surgical option.

Anesthesia

Pfeil

The appropriate type of anesthesia for you will be discussed in detail. A large number of operations can be performed in local anesthesia. In cases of complex or longer operations we recommend general anesthesia. The current methods of anesthesia are extremely safe and very well tolerated.

Risks

Pfeil

Complications are extremely rare in persons in good general health, who adhere to the recommended postoperative measures. However, complications can never be entirely ruled out. Every operation goes hand in hand with certain risks, such as drug intolerance, hematoma, inflammation, impaired wound healing, or sensitivity disorders. Even an experienced surgeon cannot predict these in advance or avoid them in all cases. Therefore, before an operation you will be informed about all potential risks.
