Dear New Patients,
here we would like to inform you about how you can make an appointment with us and important information for your first appointment.
Please read the section on new patients carefully, so that we can prepare everything ideally for your first appointment.
In order to assess whether our practice is right for you, please read here which patients come to our practice.
We have many patients from referring doctors who suspect that their chronic illness could be coming from the teeth and jaws. In our dental office, we check the health of the teeth and determine / locate interfering factors, such as inflammation in the jaw bone or foreign bodies in the tissue. During consultation with the dentists, treatments are carefully planned and a permanently stable and biocompatible solution is found. The therapy is carried out by our experienced specialists, with ideal materials and protocols, so that we can guarantee the best possible result.
To many patients, a large restoration with many ceramic implants sounds like a long process of countless sessions. Thanks to our optimized concept and many years of know-how, we can solve complex cases in just a few appointments. In this way, people who have many destroyed teeth benefit from the effective processes and a long-lasting, fixed restoration. Many patients with complete dentures in the upper and lower jaws want the quality of life and comfort of fixed teeth. These patients can benefit from our concept and enjoy the rapid treatment results.
TMD stands for Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction and is a common problem nowadays. Many of our patients have a long and frustrating history of TMJ disorders and discontinued treatments. Patients with complex TMD find their way to us through research or recommendation. Through intensive continuing education, more than 15 years of experience in TMD therapy, and a network of experts, the temporomandibular joints can be regenerated into the correct position. This enables a correct and cause-specific therapy.
Patients with dental fear often avoid going to the dentist for many years and have a correspondingly pronounced destruction in the oral cavity. Since we have a lot of experience with fearful patients, even large surgeries and restorations can be completed in a few sessions. If the patient wishes, the complete treatment can also be performed under general anesthesia. For these cases, we work with a professional anesthesia team. After the treatment is completed, it is important, especially for patients with anxiety, that the improved dental condition is maintained.
Some patients suffer from recurrent caries or periodontitis. Although they brush their teeth several times a day and pay attention to their diet, the gradual decay remains constant or even gets worse. Permanent stabilization is only possible by improving the oral bacterial flora (oral microbiome). This is because patients with a low amount of caries or periodontitis bacteria do not have these issues. Through an effective prophylaxis, with improvement of the bacterial flora, we can permanently stabilize the condition in the oral cavity.

Information for your first appointment
If you have recent X-rays (less than 1 year old), please request them from your current dentist. For digital 2D and D X-rays, the file format should always be DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). Other file formats may not be able to be opened and therefore a new X-ray may need to be done. However, we always try to avoid this.
Online Medical Information Form
Please complete and submit the online Medical Information Form at least 7 days prior to your initial appointment.
