The pulp with countless fine nerve fibres lies deep in every tooth root. The filigree canals are actually well protected inside the tooth. Only one in six patients on average has had to undergo root canal treatment in recent years. “A recent study by Barmer GEK confirms our experience that careful root canal treatment is absolutely worthwhile,” explains Drs. Raymond Metz. “Nine out of ten teeth (89%) are still preserved after three years according to the study. It is important that the inflamed or dead pulp is removed completely.” In the practice clinic the canals are partially disinfected several times before they are provided with filling material and closed. “A tooth treated in this way can do its job again for decades without any problems,” says Drs. Raymond Metz.
An anniversary is always a welcome occasion to review the past. This is especially true when, like Drs. Raymond Metz, you can say: “That’s exactly how I would do it again.” 25 years ago, he laid the foundation stone for the practice clinic that is now known beyond Mülheim’s city limits. A big step “On January 13, 1986, I opened my own dental practice in Dümpten. That was a big step for me,” recalls Drs. Metz. At that time he was the only dentist in the practice, but already attached great importance to modern dentistry based on the latest scientific findings. He could rely on the support of his wife Dominique Metz. In the founding year, she established a range of prophylactic treatments based on an international model. To this day, she continues to train herself in dental prevention and periodontitis treatment. Metz completed an international education in implantology as early as 1990 and acquired the additional focus of activity of the German Society for Dental Implantology. Since then, he has been active in implantology and is constantly further educating himself.

Raymond Metz), Spanish, Italian, Turkish, Polish, Bosnian or Portuguese, we have someone in our team who is able to speak these languages fluently and can translate for you – during your therapy, during consultations between dentist and dental technician and for the purposes of aftercare. We appreciate that it’s good to feel understood when your dental health is under discussion. We make it easy for you to communicate your wishes and ideas to us during your treatment and with regard to prophylaxis. And you can also look forward to a warm welcome in your native language!
