About Dr. Bernd Klaus

We are a small but modern clinic in a tiny village 45 minutes away from Nuremberg Airport. Air Berlin has two daily direct flights from Stansted. We can meet you at the airport and you could either stay at either a Nuremberg hotel, in one of the village pubs or in our basic flat situated in the house where we live and the surgery is located. 

If you prefer to stay for a few days instead of flying home before your next visit you could see Nuremberg, medieval Rothenburg, hike in our area of outstanding natural beauty or taste the large number of local beers and wines.

The surgery has an OPG x-ray machine and a small lab. My two dental nurses, one of them my wife Dorothy, have been working with me since 1989

I founded it in 1989 and sold it in 2000. Then I worked in other parts of Germany and in developing countries till 2005. From 2005 to the end of 2010 I worked in various private practices in England and Scotland. When my successor in Trautskirchen suddenly had to give up the practice I took it over again. I have loved to work in the UK. In my experience UK dentistry is equal to any other country with one exception: high class dentures and complicated bridges. Here German dentistry has been on top for decades and has much to offer for patients looking for the best..

I have more than 30 years of experience with telescopic crowns and precision attachtments as a better solution than clasps for removable partial dentures and overdentures. While these are generally made of costly gold alloys a few labs have comparably excellent results with the more affordable non-precious alloys. Luckily my dental lab is one of these and I see a lot of my dentures after 20 years and they are still fully functional.

Another advantage with German dentures is that we can get a superior bite by using a face bow for programming an individual articulator simulating your chewing actions. This eliminates the guesswork and haphazard grinding common with UK dentists after the patient has got his dentures and can not bite properly.

When you consider a high-end or partial denture you should be aware that you need at least 4 visits with one week intervals if made in Germany and 2 week intervals when made outside Germany (cheaper). Full dentures can be made within one week.

Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any questions.We will try to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

Dentistry

40 € - 120 €
Cosmetic Dentist Consultation

I rarely do veneers but prefer to do either esthetic fillings or porcellaine crowns.

A composite filling for a front tooth will be 40-100 Euros.

A composite filling for a molar/premolar will be 40-120 Euros

 
Dental Bridges
Guaranteed for 5 years.

2 visits necessary. Can be done by German master technician or be sent to lab in Turkey or Asia supervised by German technicians using top quallity materials. We will definitely charge less than any UK dentist. No quotes can be given here since the size and material of the bridge and the location of the lab will influence the cost

all

600 € - 1200 €
3-Unit Bridge
Guaranteed for 5 years.
2600 € - 3000 €
Implant Bridge
Guaranteed for 5 years.

We are using only one visit Champion Implants. The price quoted is for a 3 unit bridge including implants and a non precious PFM bridge

600 € - 800 €
Maryland Bridge

We rarely recommend a Maryland bridge because they are somewhat unpredictable as to how long they stay firmly cemented. Therefore no guarantee is given

700 € - 1000 €
Metal Bridge
Guaranteed for 5 years.

The quote given is for a 3 unit bridge fully made of non-precious metal. Gold could be used but no quote can be given due to changing gold prices and fifferent qualities of alloys

 
Permanent Bridge

My favourite material for permanent bridges are zirconia and non-precious pocellaine-fused-to-metal. Zirconia now can be made at very competitive prices

 
Porcelain Bridge

Due to its strength zirconia is the material of choice. It is milled by CAD/CAM and both very esthetic and durable and since no metal is used there is no chance of any  incompatabilty to metals

 
Temporary Bridge

They are usually made chairside and are included in the quotes given with the bridges above. If yxou want a longer lasting temporary bridge made by a dental lab you would have to wait for 2 days while you wear the chairside temporary bridge. Naturally then there are additional costs and it is rarely necessary to have a lab-made temporary bridge

 
Dental Crowns

can be made of various metals as specified below. You always need 2 visits which are 1 week apart if made in Germany and 2 weeks if made outside of :Europe. During that time the tooth is protected by a white temporary crown

 
Gold Crown

  They are rarely done these days since they do not look natural. No qoute can be given as the amount of gold needed for different teeth differs and alloys also differ in price. You can be assured that we will always at least match the price of your UK dentist

 
Permanent Crown
300 € - 600 €
PFM Crown
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Porcellain is fused to a metal base. :For this I prefer non-precous alloys which save you money as no gold is used. Prices vary as to how much metal is covered by porcellaine and as to where (Germany or elsewhere) the crown is made

400 € - 600 €
Porcelain Crown
Guaranteed for 5 years.

I routinely use zirconia but other types of porcellaine could be used if esthetics has to be absolutely perfect

300 €
Stainless Steel Crown
 
Temporary Crown

  I only use white temporary crowns and the price is included in the quotes given for the various types of crowns

300 € - 600 €
Zirconia Crown
Guaranteed for 5 years.

My favourite material                                                   

 
Dentist Consultation
2000 € - 6000 €
Dentures
Guaranteed for 5 years.

My favourite type of denture is the telescopic crown denture (please google it) which is unknown in the UK but highly recommendable. Much better than a simple chrome-cobalt denture which is the best UK dentists can make.

Prices given start with an acrylic denture and end with a telescopic fixed partial denture on many teeth

 
Acrylic Dentures

They are only used by me as a temporary denture right after extractions. Never use them as a permanent denture since they will ruin your bone and alwayx be unsatisfactory.

700 € - 1000 €
Chrome Dentures
Guaranteed for 5 years.

they are considered basic in Germany while high-class in the UK. If made by a German or German-trained technician they are MUCH better than anywhere in the UK

 
Dentures Adjustment
 
Dentures Repair
2000 € - 6000 €
Fixed Partial Dentures
Guaranteed for 5 years.

this is a German speciality and I have 30 years of experience. Many variations possible but mostly telescopic crowns are used. High comfort, very stable and long-lasting, much better than a chrome-cobalt denture. Usually need 4 visits. Prices vary extremely and therefore no useful quotes possible. Get your individual qoute

400 € - 600 €
Flexible Partial Dentures
Guaranteed for 3 years.

A good solution for a very few cases.

400 € - 600 €
Full Dentures

You can expect a much better fit than in 95% of UK practices. It has a higher price, however. Price give is for a single set (Upper or lower). You need 4 visits.

from 400 €
Immediate Dentures
1000 € - 2000 €
Overdentures
Guaranteed for 5 years.

it is a full denture secured by the last 1 to 3 or 4 teeth (usually by means of telescopic crowns). If you have e.g. 3 teeth and one or even two have to be extracted after a few years it will still be held by the last tooth

 
Removable Partial Dentures
Guaranteed for 5 years.

See above. Acrylic dentures are a hazard. Have them made in the UK if wanted. Chrome dentures are better if made in :Germany. A really good partial denture is without clasps using either telescopic crowns or precision attachments

 
Denturist Consultation
30 € - 80 €
Extractions
80 € - 180 €
Non-Surgical Extractions
 
Surgical Extractions
80 € - 100 €
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
 
Gingivitis Treatment
 
Mouth Guard
60 € - 400 €
Periodontitis Treatment

Treatment can be done in one or two sessions using very thin ultrasonic scalers. Surgery is only done if this treatment proves not to be sufficient. Prices given vary according to number of teeth treated and difficulty

50 € - 80 €
Sedation for dental treatments

I am using oral sedation with. You need a chaperone for 24 hours.
