Prosthetics/ geriatric dentistry

Prosthetics/ dentures

Damage or loss of teeth may severely impair the quality of life and chewing ability. Good dentures enable one to laugh and chew again and help restore the quality of life. Fixed dentures (crowns and bridges) consist of high-quality ceramic while removable dentures (prostheses) are comprised of top-quality dental plastic.

Gaps between teeth, discoloured teeth and unsightly front teeth disturb the harmonious overall appearance of the face. Veneers are wafer-thin ceramic shells which require minimally invasive placement and aesthetically beautify such teeth.

Inlays and partial crowns are suitable for larger tooth defects; they are very gentle on the teeth and exhibit occlusal stability. These minimally invasive treatments make it possible to replace lost tooth substance with durable, high-quality ceramic.


Geriatric dentistry

Geriatric dentistry requires close cooperation with the general practitioner in some cases, as some elderly individuals are multimorbid or suffer from many diseases. We work with utmost care and would be very happy to take care of you. The elderly are in good hands with us.

Your dentist should accompany you prior to and during chemotherapy to ensure damage is not caused to your teeth. We make fluoride splints which are recommended during irradiation to the head and jaw region to protect the teeth and thereby prevent lasting damage.


Bite splint/ temporomandibular joint problems/ bruxism

Many people suffer from everyday stress these days, which may have an adverse effect on the body. This stress is often processed during sleep with pronounced teeth grinding (bruxism = grinding of teeth). This grinding force may be as much as 80 kg, which damages teeth.

Severe pain may be associated, which patients must endure. A bite splint worn at night may be useful in this situation. Physiotherapy may also be indicated for very severe pain.

Anti-snoring splints/ sleep apnoea

Anti-snoring splints may serve as a remedy for snoring. The splints are placed in the upper and lower jaw at night and induce an underbite, ensuring the tongue is anteriorly positioned and thereby prevent snoring. These are thin, transparent and comfortable to wear. They also facilitate breathing, especially in patients with sleep apnoea (respiratory distress).


Sports protection splints

A protective splint to protect teeth is recommended for our patients who practice contact sports with a high risk of accidental injury (such as combat sports, ice hockey, etc.). Only imprints are taken from the upper and lower jaws. The safety of one's teeth is worth the effort.
