General anaesthesia and analgosedation

To patients who are scared of dental treatment we offer to receive all treatments under anaesthesia directly in our practice. Specialised doctors take care that otherwise prolonged treatments can be undergone mostly within one session.

Surgical procedures and implantations may carried out under anaesthesia as well. Commonly, you will be able to leave our practice one hour after anaesthesia has worn off.
As an alternative to anaesthesia we can offer dental treatment under analgosedation ("twilight sleep"). This method induces the patient to a pain-free sleep-like state which saves him or her from stress, but unlike anaesthesia without complete loss of consciousness.

Gingivitis

Inflammation of the gums caused by metabolites of plaque bacteria;
The most important feature of gingivitis is red and swollen gum tissue that bleeds quickly during external mechanical influences such as tooth brushing.

Gingivitis can be cured by removing plaque consistently. If gingivitis is left untreated it can lead to periodontosis and the breakdown of bone substance.

Glossitis

Inflammation of the mucous membrane of the tongue

Grinding of teeth

Bruxism (from Greek brychein - to gnash the teeth); mostly unconsciously clenching or rubbing the lower and upper jaw together, typically during sleep;
may cause damages on teeth and jaw joints; The reason for bruxism is still not clear, but it's assumed that stress could be the main trigger.

Gum

Latin: gingiva; surrounds the bases of teeth, the dental roots, and is connected to the oral mucous membrane, which is paler
