Our services at a glance
In all our services we attach great importance to delivering quality rather than quantity.
All dental treatments are performed with the use of magnifying glasses. Root canal treatments are carried out using a microscope. For plastic fillings we generally work with rubber dams.
The Greifswalder Dentallabor MundArt Zahntechnik GmbH (external link) is our local partner for the production of high-quality dental prostheses. For patients, who have to pay more attention to the price, we also work together with the Berliner proDentum Dentaltechnik GmbH (external link), the first provider of quality dental prostheses (with guarantee) from abroad.
Below you will find an overview of the focal points of our work. If you are interested, you can look up dental terms in the Zahnlexikon (external link) of the proDente Initiative.
Treatment under laughing gas (for dentist’s anxiety)
The analgesic and calming effect of nitrous oxide has been used in dentistry since the 19th century. Whereas in the past (before the routine local anaesthesia in dentistry) the pain-relieving effect was in the foreground, today it is mainly the calming and anxiety-relieving property of laughing gas that makes it an excellent treatment aid (especially for anxious patients).
After just a few breaths of the mixture of oxygen and laughing gas administered via a small nose mask, the patient feels the relaxing and calming effect. Previously existing fears and tensions give way to a calming feeling of security and the patient can let go completely inside and pursue pleasant thoughts. Despite the laughing gas effect, the patient is always approachable and master of his senses.
After the treatment the patient gets to breathe pure oxygen for about 5 minutes. The patient can then leave the practice alone and with a clear head, as the nitrous oxide is excreted from the body within a few minutes by the breathing air and, in comparison to other sedatives and pain killers, does not last any longer.
Treatment with the KaVo Key Laser
With the KaVo Key Laser, dental treatment does not hurt at all.
Thanks to intensive development and research work in the field of laser therapy, we are already able to offer patients very gentle and at the same time safe methods for the treatment of caries, root and gum problems.
The gentle power of concentrated laser energy replaces the drill. Patients are freed from unpleasant drilling noises, pressure and vibrations. The laser treatment is largely painless, so that local anaesthesia can almost always be dispensed with.
A clear advantage is the anti-inflammatory and germ reducing effect of the KaVo Key Laser and thus the rapid wound healing following the treatment procedure.
If a tooth has become inflamed to the depth, only a root canal treatment can help.
Sometimes a tooth can only be saved with root canal treatment. This can prevent the extraction of a tooth. The tooth is then dead, but can continue to do its job with a crown.
Often the cause of disaster is untreated tooth decay. If it is not treated in time, the inside of the tooth becomes inflamed. The tissue swells and presses on the nerve. The bacteria spread and attack the root of the tooth. The inflammation can become chronic and, if left untreated, ultimately spread through the root canals into the jawbone. A root canal treatment can interrupt this spread and preserve the damaged tooth.
Electronic bite registration
Intraoral Pressuredependent Registration (IPR)
In addition to long-established diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, our practice works successfully with modern examination techniques.
The electronic Intraoral Pressuredependent Registration (IPR), for example, helps to analyse malpositions and dysfunctions of the jaw and temporomandibular joint, which are often the cause of long-term complaints in the head and face area.
By means of a balancing therapy, patients with joint and chewing pains, teeth grinding, migraine or chronic headache and tension can be helped.
The electronic measuring system IPR is also successfully used for progress monitoring within the scope of the individual adaptation of new dental prostheses and the implementation of aesthetic dental measures.
Treatment under anaesthesia
For patients who cannot cope with their dental anxiety at all, a restoration under general anesthesia is possible.
The anaesthesia is performed by a medical specialist for anaesthesia and intensive care.
Hypnosis at the dentist – A way to relaxed treatment
Hypnosis is a very helpful remedy in dentistry, especially in the course of prolonged treatments. Hypnosis helps tense patients in particular to permanently reduce their fear of the dentist. Patients who do not like the numb feeling after anaesthesia or who do not tolerate normal anaesthetics can be treated with hypnosis without injections or even painlessly.
Those who suffer from severe gag reflexes will find dental treatment under hypnosis much more pleasant.
Our practice works largely with modern, clinical hypnosis.
The patient concentrates his attention on an inner, positive goal, which was previously chosen by himself.
With the transition to the trance state, physical relaxation, a calming of the breathing and the pulse beat begins. The external perception is strongly limited, so that the dental treatment takes a back seat.
However, the patient can always decide for himself to what extent he would like to experience the dental treatment or to move away from it completely. Subjectively, the duration of the procedure is always perceived as shortened.

Professional tooth cleaning
Professional dental cleaning is one of the preventive measures in dentistry.
Even if you brush as often and as well as you can, plaque can form over time that can cause diseases such as caries or periodontitis. Some areas are difficult to reach with a toothbrush and dental floss.
Cleaning by a professional is therefore recommended at least once or twice a year. All hard (tartar) and soft dental plaque is removed with professional tools. Your teeth will then be polished. Rubber attachments or polishing pastes and brushes are used. Finally, your teeth are coated with fluoride gel to strengthen the enamel.
Fancy a little extravagance? Fancy a little more colour in your smile?
Earrings, necklaces, bracelets – everyone adorns themselves with these. If you are in the mood for more extravagance and also want to conjure colour into your face with your smile, we recommend hand-painted, varied tooth jewellery.
A very modern clip-on system, which is firmly anchored to the bit with a tiny substructure, allows you to change different motifs at will. If the situation requires it, a neutral clip will make the tooth jewellery disappear completely.
