Practice for oral surgery in Cologne

As specialists in the field of oral surgery, we are there for you with our dental practice in the heart of Cologne. When treating our patients, we place special emphasis on a gentle approach. That is why we start in advance with a detailed and individual consultation and ensure painless and precise diagnostics.

Fields of activity of oral surgery

Oral surgery deals with the surgical treatment of the oral cavity, which affects the jaw, teeth and gums. Bone augmentation and the insertion of implants are now established procedures and an integral part of oral surgery. It requires special training, which enables dentists as well as clinics to perform surgical procedures. 

Our team of physicians is specialized in oral surgery and performs complex procedures using the most modern techniques. With this know-how, we would like to spare our patients the referral to a dental clinic and offer one-stop care.

Our practice covers the following areas of oral surgery:

  • Removal of wisdom teeth
  • Root apex resections (WSR)
  • Jaw and bone augmentation
  • Removal of oral mucosa alterations
  • Cyst Removal

Aftercare in Cologne

In the case of comprehensive interventions, such as those that occur in oral surgery, an equally extensive aftercare follows in our dental practice in Cologne. In addition to a routine check-up, this also includes a debriefing and – if necessary – planning of post-operative treatments.

Professional treatment and removal of wisdom teeth

Whether wisdom teeth need to be removed over time cannot be answered in a generalized way. In most cases wisdom teeth come through only incompletely or not at all. However, if there is not enough space in the jaw, the other teeth cannot move and the wisdom tooth looks for another way. The consequences are crooked teeth – sometimes caries and inflammation. Because of the pain we finally go to our doctor.

Necessity of wisdom tooth removal

If the wisdom teeth do not have enough space, the wisdom teeth must be removed. Depending on the shape, number and position of the roots, the removal can be simple or complex. In order to confirm a necessary intervention, the following questions must be clarified in advance:

Is there a risk of erupting wisdom teeth or has pain or damage already occurred?

Do the wisdom teeth endanger the development of the other teeth or the dentition?

Can an intervention and removal be carried out without affecting the other teeth?

In order to provide our patients with a painless and pleasant treatment, the removal of the wisdom teeth is performed under local anesthesia. On request, the procedure can also be performed under general anesthesia. 

In the case of simple removals, the teeth can be removed without the gums coming off. In more complex situations the gum is folded back locally, the tooth is divided into several pieces and the roots are removed one by one. This surgical removal of wisdom teeth spares important nerves and the risk of complications is kept low.

Our work is characterized by experience and empathy and is always oriented towards the well-being of our patients. Through a preliminary discussion in which we go through the procedure, possible risks and the pre- and post-treatment, we would like to take away fears and make our work transparent. 

Please contact us, our dentists will be happy to advise you!

Frequently asked questions about oral surgery

What does a root tip resection (WSR) mean for my tooth?

In a root tip resection, only the root tips are cut off, with the aim of preserving the tooth. The procedure has a relatively high chance of success and our close monitoring additionally ensures a positive prognosis.

How does jaw and bone reconstruction work?

If bone is missing in the area of an implant, it can either be harvested from the body's own regions (chin, jaw angle) or artificial bone replacement material can be used to build it up. This extends the time required for the new implant. Further details must be discussed individually with the patient in the practice for the respective case.

Who decides if and when wisdom teeth are removed?

The indication to remove wisdom teeth can come from different medical experts. For example, the orthodontist can put the removal at the end of his therapy. Frequently, prophylactic extractions are also performed to avoid inflammation.
