1. Are you a private dental practice, do you also treat statutory insured patients?
Of course we also treat statutory insured patients, but the patients have to pay for all treatment costs.
2. What does my statutory health insurance cover?
The statutory health insurance does not cover private treatment costs because it has a different accounting.
3. Can I arrange payment by installments?
We are cooperating with the DZR (Deutsches Zahnärztliches Rechenzentrum GmbH). This will assist you with financing questions you may have. Of course, you can also ask our staff if interested.
4. Can I choose my dentist as a patient within the practice?
Of course, you can decide from which dentist you want to be treated. If you are unsure, you can consult our staff for information.
5. How often should I have my teeth professionally cleaned?
The frequency of professional cleaning is individually tailored to each patient and depends on how high the caries or periodontitis risk is.
6. Can I come immediately as a pain patient?
Of course you can come with an acute toothache. To avoid a long wait, it is best if you just call the practice and tell us about your medical conditions, so our staff can conduct all the necessary arrangements.
7. What kind of X-ray machine is used in our practice?
We work with a digital X-ray machine (Orthopantomograph OP 100 D).
8. Where are my dentures made?
Our practice is cooperating with various dental technology laboratories in the region.
9. I am interested in implants. How good is the compatibility & healing process of implants?
Most dental implants are made of titanium. This material has an optimum biocompatibility (tissue compatibility). The body does not react to titanium, so that the bone cells can directly attach to the titanium surface.
An allergy is virtually impossible, thus, a rejection is very unlikely due to the material.
Zirconium/ ceramic implants:
Zirconium implants have a very high bending and breaking strength. Moreover, they are highly compatible from a biological perspective. There are no known incompatibility reactions. The healing of the zirconium implants in bone is still a bit slower than with titanium implants.
10. I have several incompatibilities. Do you have the possibility to test dental materials?
We are happy to offer you an intolerance test. This is carried out individually and in discussion with the patient's request. If interested, please speak to your doctor.
11. Does my child need an examination even with milk teeth?
It is necessary to have an examination in any case, the milk teeth of your children as carious teeth can lead to suppuration of the jaw bone and cause damage to the permanent teeth as well.
Through regular checkups and fluoride application one can prevent tooth decay (the tooth enamel gets more resistant).
12. I've often heard that a healthy diet is very important for the teeth. What does that exactly mean for the diet of my child?
Nutrition is very important because our teeth need minerals, i.e primarily calcium, phosphate and iron. Of course, vitamins and certain trace elements are important.
These substances are found in the following foods:
- Milk and milk products - high quality cereal products
- vegetables - eggs
- fruit - lean meat
13. Is caries dangerous in pregnancy?
Yes, because caries is an infectious disease and tooth decay germs can be transferred to the child.
