Air Abrasion

Air polishing is an alternative, non-contact, method of polishing teeth using a polishing cup and paste after teeth scaling. It requires a special ultrasonic unit (e.g. Air Flow from EMS) that allows use of this insert in the handpiece.

 
Antibiotic and Antifungal Treatment

Candida albicans is a diploid fungus that grows both as yeast and filamentous cells and a causal agent of opportunistic oral and genital infections in humans.[3][4] Systemic fungal infections (fungemias) including those by C. albicans have emerged as important causes of morbidity and mortality in immunocompromised patients (e.g., AIDS, cancer chemotherapy, organ or bone marrow transplantation). C. albicans biofilms may form on the surface of implantable medical device

 
Bone Graft

Bone grafting is a surgical procedure that replaces missing bone.

Bone generally has the ability to regenerate completely but requires a very small fracture space or some sort of scaffold to do so. Bone grafts may be autologous (bone harvested from the patient’s own body, often from the iliac crest), allograft (cadaveric bone usually obtained from a bone bank), or synthetic (often made of hydroxyapatite or other naturally occurring and biocompatible substances) with similar mechanical properties to bone. Most bone grafts are expected to be reabsorbed and replaced as the natural bone heals over a few months’ time.

The principles involved in successful bone grafts include osteoconduction (guiding the reparative growth of the natural bone), osteoinduction (encouraging undifferentiated cells to become active osteoblasts), and osteogenesis (living bone cells in the graft material contribute to bone remodeling). Osteogenesis only occurs with autografts.

Accelerated Braces™

Treatment with self-ligating braces. Self-ligating braces are defined as "a [dental] brace, which utilizes a permanently installed, moveable component to entrap the archwire"One of the most significant differences from conventional dental braces is the absence of elastic ligature (bands or ties). Self-ligating braces typically are smaller and more aesthetic since a metal door is required to hold wires in place (this prevents "invisible" or clear options of these braces, with the exception of 3M Unitek who have devised a hybrid bracket called the "Smartclip"). They also tend to stand off the teeth further toward the lips and cheeks. The ties on this type of brace are used to hold the archwire in place. The self-ligating braces uses a slide mechanism to hold the archwire, thus reducing the amount of pressure exerted on the teeth. However, there are many similarities to typical braces, such as the fitting on such appliances; self-ligating braces are glued onto the teeth and are not removable until treatment is complete. Regular cleaning is also essential for effective treatment and desirable results.

€250  -  €3500
Adult Braces
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Minimal orthodontic treatment for adults with the help of Temporary Anchorage Devices. We perform intrusion, extrusion and mesialisation & distalisation of teeths for implant site preparation. We can also help with gummy smiles and with aesthetics!

€600  -  €4000
Ceramic Braces
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Ceramic braces are nearly invisible!

This type of dental braces is suitable for patients concerned about their appearance, as the ceramic brackets are translucent blending with the natural tooth color, but they are much more expensive. However, ceramic brackets are also more brittle and prone to breakage, so they are not recommended for cases that require large pressures to move teeth.
€400  -  €1000
Child Braces

Depending on the malocclusion of your child, Phase I might be indicated. Indications for early orthodontic treatment are for example anterior or posterior crossbite. The treatment expenses for Phase I will be deducted from the total if a Phase II treatment is necessary.

€3000  -  €5000
Clear Braces
Guaranteed for 5 years.

INVISALIGN TREATMENT!

This orthodontic treatment from America is performed with invisible clear trays that are exchanged every two months! You will not be wearing any braces but a very thin plastic cover over your teeth which has the movement of the teeth programmed.

Damon™ Braces
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Damon braces are based on one of the modern technologies in orthodontics called ‘self-ligation’. For this reason they are also referred as ‘Self Ligating Braces’. Unlike classic braces, Damon brackets do not require ligatures or small bands that are usually used to keep the arch-wires in place. They offer a lower-friction solution to teeth straightening. The Damon brackets use a "sliding-door" technology that allows the wire to slide back and forth inside the bracket causing less friction. Therefore they are considered as more comfortable for the patient than the other types of dental braces. Also, Damon brackets offer faster orthodontic treatment time and smaller number of adjustments.

€500  -  €3000
Fixed Braces

Treatment with stainless steel brackets.

Generally these traditional metal braces are the most economic option if you are looking for cheap braces. They should not be used by those who are allergic to nickel.
 
Incognito™ Braces

Treatment with the Incognito System.

Incognito™ Orthodontic Braces are a unique choice because patients can smile with confidence both during and after treatment. Placed on the back side of the teeth, Incognito Orthodontic Braces are completely hidden from view.

Incognito Orthodontic Braces are also 100% customized to meet the unique orthodontic prescription of every patient. Customization can lead to a more convenient and comfortable treatment experience.

Lingual Braces
Guaranteed for 5 years.

Treatment with lingual braces, 2d or 3d!

Lingual (hidden) braces are a special type of orthodontic braces fitted to the back surfaces of the teeth. They look like traditional metal braces with wires but they are not that visible from the front. As they are not easily noticed by others, lingual braces are also referred as ‘hidden braces’.
 Lingual dental braces are more expensive than traditional metal braces and require a specially trained orthodontist to the specific type of braces.

Orthodontic Retainer
Guaranteed for 5 years.Orthodontic retainers are custom-made devices, made usually of wires or clear plastic, that hold teeth in position after surgery or any method of realigning teeth. They are most often used before or after dental braces to hold teeth in position while assisting the adjustment of the surrounding gums to changes in the bone. Most patients are required to wear their retainer(s) every night at first, with many also being directed to wear them during the day - at least initially. There are three types of retainers typically prescribed by orthodontists and dentists: Hawley, Essix, and Bonded (Fixed) retainers.

Dental X-Ray

WE OFFER the latest CHAIR-SIDE dental imaging with direct transfer to the dental chair pc screen!

Dental radiographs, commonly referred to as X-ray films, or informally, X-rays, are pictures of the teeth, bones, and surrounding A radiographic image is formed by a controlled burst of X-ray radiation which penetrates oral structures at different levels, depending on varying anatomical densities, before striking the film or sensor. Teeth appear lighter because less radiation penetrates them to reach the film. Dental caries, infections and other changes in the bone density, and the periodontal ligament, appear darker because X-rays readily penetrate these less dense structures. Dental restorations (fillings, crowns) may appear lighter or darker, depending on the density of the material.

Extractions
A dental extraction (also referred to as exodontia) is the removal of a tooth from the mouth. Extractions are performed for a wide variety of reasons, including tooth decay that has destroyed enough tooth structure to render the tooth non-restorable. Extractions of impacted or problematic wisdom teeth are routinely performed, as are extractions of some permanent teeth to make space for orthodontic treatment.
 
Non-Surgical Extractions
This is the regular type of extraction that a lot of patients have experienced in the past. The tooth is loosened and removed with a forceps.

The advantage of this extraction type is that healing is quicker.

However this method is not suited to all teeth. There must be adequate sound tooth structure to grip for this type of extraction. This extraction method is not suited to impacted teeth, badly broken down or decayed teeth or those with multiple roots in dense bone.
 
Surgical Extractions

Surgical extractions involve the removal of teeth that cannot be easily accessed, either because they have broken under the gum line or because they have not erupted fully. Surgical extractions almost always require an incision. In a surgical extraction the doctor may elevate the soft tissues covering the tooth and bone and may also remove some of the overlying and/or surrounding jawbone tissue with a drill or osteotome. Frequently, the tooth may be split into multiple pieces to facilitate its removal. Surgical extractions are usually performed under a general anaesthetic.

 
Wisdom Tooth Extraction
A wisdom tooth, in humans, is any of the usually four third molars. Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 25.[1] Most adults have four wisdom teeth, but it is possible to have more, in which case they are called supernumerary teeth. Wisdom teeth commonly affect other teeth as they develop, becoming impacted or "coming in sideways." They are often extracted when this occurs. About 35% of the population do not develop wisdom teeth at all.[2]
 
Gingivitis Treatment
Gingivitis — an inflammation of the gums — is the initial stage of gum disease and the easiest to treat. The direct cause of gingivitis is plaque - the soft, sticky, colorless film of bacteria that forms constantly on the teeth and gums.

If the plaque is not removed by daily brushing and flossing, it produces toxins (poisons) that can irritate the gum tissue, causing gingivitis. At this early stage in gum disease, damage can be reversed, since the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth in place are not yet affected. Left untreated, however, gingivitis can become periodontitis and cause permanent damage to your teeth and jaw.

How do I Know if I Have Gingivitis?
Classic signs and symptoms of gingivitis include red, swollen, tender gums that may bleed when you brush. Another sign of gum disease is gums that have receded or pulled away from your teeth, giving your teeth an elongated appearance. Gum disease can cause pockets to form between the teeth and gums, where plaque and food debris collect. Some people may experience recurring bad breath or a bad taste in their mouth, even if the disease is not advanced.

How can I Prevent Gingivitis?
Good oral hygiene is essential. Professional cleanings are also extremely important because once plaque has hardened and built up, or become tartar, only a dentist or dental hygienist can remove it.

You can help stop gingivitis before it develops by:

  • Proper brushing and flossing to remove plaque and debris and control tartar buildup
  • Eating right to ensure proper nutrition for your jawbone and teeth
  • Avoiding cigarettes and other forms of tobacco
  • Scheduling regular checkups with your dentist
 
GTR - Guided Tissue Regeneration

Guided bone regeneration or GBR, and guided tissue regeneration or GTR are dental surgical procedures that utilize barrier membranes to direct the growth of new bone and gingival tissue at sites having insufficient volumes or dimensions of bone or gingiva for proper function, esthetics or prosthetic restoration.

GBR is similar to guided tissue regeneration (GTR) but is focused on development of hard tissues in addition to the soft tissues of the periodontal attachment. At present, guided bone regeneration is predominantly applied in the oral cavity to support new hard tissue growth on an alveolar ridge to allow stable placement of dental implants. Used in conjunction with sound surgical technique, GBR is a reliable and validated procedure.

 
Gum Surgery

Periodontitis is a set of inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium, i.e., the tissues that surround and support the teeth. Periodontitis involves progressive loss of the alveolar bone around the teeth, and if left untreated, can lead to the loosening and subsequent loss of teeth. Periodontitis is caused by microorganisms that adhere to and grow on the tooths surfaces, along with an overly aggressive immune response against these microorganisms. A diagnosis of periodontitis is established by inspecting the soft gum tissues around the teeth with a probe (i.e. a clinical exam) and by evaluating the patients x-ray films (i.e. a radiographic exam), to determine the amount of bone loss around the teeth.[1] Specialists in the treatment of periodontitis are periodontists; their field is known as "periodontology" or "periodontics".The cornerstone of successful periodontal treatment starts with establishing excellent

 
Gingival Flap Surgery

Gingival flap surgery is a type of gum procedure. The gums are separated from the teeth and folded back temporarily. This allows a dentist to reach the root of the tooth and the bone.Gingival flap surgery is used to treat gum disease (periodontitis). It may be recommended for people with moderate or advanced periodontitis. Usually, a treatment that doesnt involve surgery is done first. This is called scaling and root planing. If this treatment does not eliminate the gum infection, gingival flap surgery may be used. It also may be done along with another procedure known as osseous (bone) surgery. Your periodontist or your dental hygienist will first remove all plaque and tartar (calculus) from around your teeth. He or she will make sure that your oral hygiene is good. Your periodontist also will evaluate your health and the medicines you take. This is important to make sure that surgery is safe for you. First, you will get a shot to numb the area. Then the periodontist will use a scalpel to separate the gums from the teeth. They will be lifted or folded back in the form of a flap. This gives the periodontist direct access to the roots and bone supporting the teeth.

Inflamed tissue will be removed from between the teeth and from any holes (defects) in the bone. The periodontist then will do a procedure called scaling and root planing to clean plaque and tartar. If you have bone defects, your periodontist may eliminate them. This procedure is called osseous recontouring. It smoothes the edges of the bone using files or rotating burs.

After these procedures are completed, the gums will be placed back against the teeth and stitched in place. Some periodontists use stitches that dissolve on their own. Others use stitches that have to be removed a week to 10 days after the surgery. Your periodontist also may cover the surgical site with a bandage known as a periodontal pack or dressing. You will have mild to moderat

 
Gum Contouring and Reshaping

Gum contouring, also known as gum reshaping, is a cosmetic form of dental treatment used to improve the general look of a person’s teeth. It is primarily used in cases where the individual has what is commonly known as ‘gummy smile’. This is a condition in which the gums cover too much of the teeth, usually the front teeth, and this can leave the length of the teeth looking too short, which can affect a person’s general desire to smile.

Such a condition may be caused due to genetics, health circumstances or as a result of certain high blood pressure prescriptions. This can have an affect on an individual’s self-confidence and may see them do their best not to smile in public. Thankfully, gum contouring is a dental treatment which is painless and able to solve the problem of ‘gummy smile’ through quick and painless treatment.

Inman Aligner™

The Inman Aligner is a fantastic, simple and hassle-free way of straightening your front teeth. It is the orthodontic treatment of choice for adult relapse.

In the past anyone with crooked teeth have had only a few choices. Fixed braces and clear braces work well but are slow and can also be costly.

Because of this many people choose to have porcelain veneers instead. This often involves heavy grinding of the teeth to get them into the right position first. As a result many patients choose to do nothing and just live with it.

However the Inman Aligner now gives us all a very real alternative. Because it works so quickly and efficiently, if you dont like the idea of having brackets stuck to your teeth or waiting months and months for a clear brace to work, you can now have your front teeth straightened in as little as 6 -16 weeks.

This also means that anyone considering veneers to align their teeth now has a far more conservative solution. You might not even need veneers at all.

Even if veneers are absolutely necessary because your teeth are so discoloured and mis-shapen, the Inman Aligner the perfect way to align the teeth first quickly before the veneers are prepared. This way you can get a far more conservative solution.

The Inman Aligner is not just an orthodontic appliance. Many cosmetic dentists are calling it the "missing link between orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry."

It has also been described as the "Greatest Innovation in Cosmetic Dentistry since the porcelain veneer".

Not every case is possible and of course there are limitations, but if you are suitable you could get a fantastic smile in a matter of weeks and at far less cost.

 
Lingual Frenectomy

A lingual frenectomy is a form of frenectomy associated with the tongue.

The removal of the lingual frenulum under the tongue can be accomplished with either frenectomy or frenuloplasty. This is used to treat a tongue tied patient. It is rumored that, immediately after this minor oral surgery, the tongue can often dramatically extend out of the mouth which it could not before do.[1] However the references here measure the difference in "millimeters" and it may actually shorten the tongue, depending on the procedure and aftercare.

Domenico Maceri claims that some South Korean parents have their children undergo frenectomy "which lengthens the tongue by about one millimeter" in the belief they will pronounce English better.[2] Critics regard the surgery as unnecessary, as Koreans born in the United States have no trouble distinctly pronouncing /r/ and /l/.

 
Mouth Guard

A mouthguard (also known as a mouth protector, mouth piece, gumshield, gumguard or nightguard) is a protective device for the mouth that covers the teeth and gums to prevent and reduce injury to the teeth, arches, lips and gums. Mouthguards are most often used to prevent injury in contact sports, as a treatment for bruxism or TMD, or as part of certain dental procedures, such as tooth bleaching.

Sinus Lift

A maxillary sinus floor augmentation procedure (sometimes known informally as a sinus-lift or sinus procedure) is a surgical procedure performed by an appropriately trained dentist or dental specialist to increase the amount of bone in the posterior maxilla, or upper jaw bone.

While there may be a number of reasons for wanting a greater volume of bone in the posterior maxilla, the most common reason in contemporary dental treatment planning is to prepare the site for the future placement of dental implants.

 
Teeth Cleaning

Teeth cleaning is part of oral hygiene and involves the removal of dental plaque from teeth with the intention of preventing cavities (dental caries), gingivitis, and periodontal disease. People routinely clean their own teeth by brushing and interdental cleaning, and dental hygienists can remove hardened deposits not removed by routine cleaning. Those with dentures and natural teeth may supplement their cleaning with a denture cleaner.

 
Scaling and Root Planing

The objective of scaling and root planing, otherwise known as conventional periodontal therapy, or non-surgical periodontal therapy, is to remove or eliminate the etiologic agents which cause inflammation: dental plaque, its products and calculus, thus helping to establish a periodontium that is free of disease.

Treatment of Dental Abscess
Dental or oral cysts are a fairly common occurrence in the mouth. In addition to cysts that grow along the gum line, this may also grow on the inside of the cheek, the tongue, as well as the floor of the mouth. A cyst is medically defined as a fluid filled sac or pouch, but can also appear as a growth of any kind, including an irregularly shaped patch of skin. Regardless, this should be removed and tested by your dentist or oral surgeon to ensure that growth is benign (harmless) as opposed to malignant (cancerous).

What are Oral Cysts?Several forms or types of cysts may develop in the mouth cavity. Oral cysts are also called dental cysts, as well as periapical, odontogenic or radicular cysts. Dental cysts are a very common form of an odontogenic cysts. In most cases, such cysts are caused by infections that result in the pulp or inner portion of the tooth becoming infected and causing resultant decay, as well as the development of fluid filled sacs or inflamed tissue. Fluids contained within such as sacs or cysts may be sterile or infected. If not treated, infectious fluids may be reabsorbed and spread infection to other locations in the body.

Types of Oral Cysts

The most common types of oral cysts include:

  • Periapical cyst - also known as a radicular cyst, these are the most common of odontogenic cyst types. The tooth becomes infected, leading to death of pulp tissues. Infected matter and toxins may escape through the apex (bottommost portion) of the tooth, leading to infection of surrounding tissues as well as the development of cysts caused by skin or gum tissue caused by lack of adequate blood supply.
  • Keratocyst - This cyst is often difficult to diagnose, and results pertaining to content must rely on laboratory tests. They are rather aggressive and
