Amalgam consists of approx. 50% mercury, which is a heavy metal that is considered poisonous and has a negative impact on general health. Replacing amalgam with ceramic restorations stabilises the tooth and creates a more attractive appearance.
In response to food intake, the body produces acids that make teeth vulnerable. Saliva has the ability to neutralise these acids and remineralise enamel within a few hours.
But constant consumption of acidic drinks or certain foods increases the risk of enamel damage, and eating disorders or other causes can also lead to it. Consultation with a dental hygienist, and if indicated a nutritionist, can help restore your dental health.
Healthy teeth are essential for a high quality of life. Swiss Smile offers a full range of dental care. According to the World Health Organisation, dental caries is one of the most common human diseases. Tooth decay is mainly the result of poor eating habits. To keep your teeth safe from tooth decay, it is recommended that you visit your dentist regularly.
In some cases, the frenulum may be too short, limiting the mobility of the upper or lower lip. It can have a negative effect on the development of the tooth position, resulting in misalignment of the tooth row. The most common manifestation is a large gap between the two upper central incisors (diastema).
Clenching of teeth (bruxism)
Gritted teeth describes the habit of clenching the jaws hard when chewing, under stress or during periods of sleep. Teeth are usually erased unconsciously at night (grinding teeth in your sleep), so the problem often goes unnoticed. This can cause significant damage to tooth structure, making them susceptible to decay and periodontal disease. To relieve symptoms, the doctor may suggest dental mouthguards to harmonise the interaction between the upper and lower jaw. In more serious cases, it is recommended to consult a chiropractor.
Snoring can be caused, for example, by excessive alcohol consumption, excessive body weight or side effects of medication. For most patients, snoring can be eliminated without surgery.
Root canal treatment can cure even severely affected teeth. A dentist in Switzerland can save teeth with root canal treatment using modern treatment technologies. 80-90 per cent of diseased teeth can be saved.
An important component in endodontics is the operating microscope, with which even small canals can be found and the disease treated.
Removal of the root tip
If the affected tooth tissue is causing inflammation of the bone at the tip of the root, that part of the tooth must be extracted. This treatment option aims to eliminate the inflammation without losing the tooth by extracting the inflamed tissue and sealing the root canal.
Gingivitis occurs when toxins penetrate the connective tissue of the gum, which is mainly caused by poor oral hygiene. Infectious bacteria associated with periodontal disease can cause redness, swelling and bleeding of the gums, which is especially visible when brushing teeth. Good oral hygiene, including plaque removal and consistent visits to the dental hygienist, can significantly reduce the inflammatory symptoms of periodontal disease.
Periodontitis / tooth loss
Periodontitis is a disease of the gums, which fall behind the bone and become infected. Unfortunately, it is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. Typical symptoms are increased tooth mobility, bleeding gums, or bad breath. Typically, a dental hygienist will clean the teeth over several sessions. In case of the last stage of periodontitis or if non-surgical treatment does not help, surgery comes to the rescue.
An exposed tooth root often causes tooth sensitivity and can lead to bone loss. To treat this medical condition, other soft tissue is taken and the affected area is covered. A gum graft is taken from donors or from the area of the upper wisdom teeth.
Inflammatory processes around the implant (Peri-implantitis)
Dental implantology has become a distinct section within modern dentistry. The long-term successes of dental implants have been well documented in the dental literature. In rare cases, inflammatory processes, in other words, infections of the gums and bone around the implants, occur. If the implant remains stable, timely intervention by the implantologist can save the implant.
The loss of one or more teeth is a widespread problem. There are many causes of tooth loss, such as accidents, trauma, dental decay or periodontal disease. If you are suffering from serious dental problems that may require tooth extraction, our experts will be happy to advise you on how to proceed in your case.
The loss of one or more teeth has a significant impact on the patient's quality of life, as it reduces the ability to chew and the aesthetics are compromised. Patients feel ashamed to smile because of their missing teeth.
Removable dentures serve as replacements for lost natural teeth to restore the function and aesthetics of the remaining dentition.
Wisdom teeth usually appear between the ages of 17 and 24. In many cases, the appearance of wisdom teeth causes dental complications and early removal is recommended.
What kind of implants?
Typically, a screw-type dental implant is surgically inserted to replace a missing tooth root. It can be used to replace a single tooth, fill large gaps in a residual bite, or even retain a full implant-supported denture. The length of treatment varies depending on the extent of treatment. Treatment is typically completed within three to nine months.
With the "All-on-4" method, we are able to provide our edentulous patients with special implants that can support new fixed teeth immediately. In many cases, long bone regeneration can be avoided with this method.
Bone augmentation is necessary if insertion of the required dental implant is not possible due to the condition of the jawbone.
There are no age limits for orthodontic treatment anymore. Beautiful, straight teeth are possible for everyone. Misalignments and distortions can be fully corrected in adults as well. An increasing number of adults trust orthodontic procedures because of aesthetic and preventive purposes.
Many people want a white and beautiful smile. Thanks to modern methods and technologies in aesthetic and reconstructive dentistry, this desire can become a reality nowadays.
Regardless of the current condition of your palate, we provide the opportunity to address current lack of function, inflammation, or preserve aesthetics.
Complete rehabilitation is a complex process and requires careful treatment planning and a high level of expertise in the various fields of modern dentistry. It is recommended that you choose only experienced professionals to ensure a predictable and excellent outcome.
Unfortunately, as we age, biological changes occur in the oral environment. This often results in receding gums, exposed tooth roots, bone loss, inflammation or periodontal disease. Tooth loss, inflammation, or injury can cause significant damage to the jawbone and require hard and soft tissue augmentation. Microsurgical techniques allow minimally invasive surgery to restore healthy hard and soft tissues.
Very thin laminates that can improve the aesthetic appearance of teeth.
Regardless of what you expect from your dental treatment, we always implement methods tailored to your personal needs. We will find the most suitable solution for you. People who are afraid of the dentist will be carefully accompanied on their journey to a fearless visit.
Traditional methods are regularly based on mechanical dental treatment in direct contact with the tissue. Nowadays, the use of laser instruments allows treatment without direct contact with the tissue. Therefore, especially surgical procedures on soft and hard tissues are non-traumatic, almost painless and provide rapid healing. Laser treatment can be performed to remove bacteria, viruses or fungi from the surface of teeth, dental implants, as well as for biostimulation effects in tissue healing. In addition, tooth decay can be removed with laser technology.
Improvements in biomaterials research (particularly composites and ceramics) as well as dental technology make it possible to perform restorations with only minor tooth preparation.
Thanks to modern anaesthetic techniques and drugs, treatment under general anaesthesia is a very safe option and can also be performed on an outpatient basis. The patient can usually go home with an escort about an hour after surgery. At Swiss Smile, anaesthesia is administered by a trusted team of experienced anaesthetists.
Treatment under general anaesthesia is recommended when a patient has a strong fear of dental treatment (dentophobia) or in cases where extensive surgery is planned (e.g. implants).
In addition to treatment under general anaesthesia, Swiss Smile also offers alternative methods of sedation such as hypnosis and premedication, depending on the experience of local dental clinics.
