Visit us to help keep your teeth healthy and only treat what needs treating. Our practice operates in accordance with the principles of the “Schweizer Schule” (Swiss School) and aims to preserve the natural substance of the teeth or replace lost substance using the technique with the best possible prognosis.
We strive to put the latest scientific findings into practice. We use proven materials and methods which scientific studies have shown to be more effective and superior to those used previously. For the individually tailored care of your teeth, we take time to carefully plan and implement your course of treatment. With us, you will find expertise and patient support that aims to preserve or recover your normal ability to chew, smile and speak.
To determine the rate of progression of a small carious lesion, it is documented in a special dental report using different classifications. All of our dentists, prophylactic assistants, dental hygienists, and dental technicians carry out examinations, treatments or dental technical tasks using magnifying glasses or microscopes. This allows us to provide high quality treatment which is gentle on the teeth.
We use the latest lasers and LED light probes for the early detection and assessment of carious lesions. This enables us to objectively differentiate between caries and discoloration (brown spots) which do not require treatment.
Not every discoloration (brown spot) on a tooth requires treatment; in some cases, it can make more sense to monitor a small defect before deciding to use the drill, as some types of lesions do not develop any further. To determine the rate of progression of a small carious lesion, the lesion is documented in a special dental report using different classifications. We can provide intraoral photos to help you decide whether to undergo treatment.
The general principle applied is that the earlier caries is discovered and treated, the more the natural substance of your teeth can be preserved. Tooth restoration can be carried out on a small scale, targeting only the defect, to make sure that as much of the natural tooth enamel remains as possible.
(Scientific research has shown that without staining of caries bacteria, there remains hidden bacteria on 70 percent of teeth which have undergone treatment. Staining of the teeth makes hidden bacteria visible before completing closure and restoration of the tooth and enables prevention of the development of new caries by the residual caries).
