What does preventive oral care entail?

  • 6-monthly check-up
  • oral examination at first visit in order to obtain a detailed overview and necessary information about your teeth
  • Formulation of a treatment plan
  • Plaque removal
  • Sealing



The word “seal” is derived from the English verb “to seal”. It means sealing grooves and pits in teeth. The dentist usually seals with a plastic varnish. This can be transparent or yellowish-white.


Why do you seal?

Sealing is done to protect molars from cavities in the areas where they are most susceptible to cavities, the grooves and pits. These are vulnerable, especially if they are deep and narrow. The bristles of the toothbrush have a hard time cleaning the grooves. Sealing is usually done shortly after the permanent molar has fully erupted. This is when the risk of cavities is greatest.


Advantages and disadvantages of sealing

The advantage of sealing is that there is less chance of cavities in the sealed areas of the molars. The disadvantage is that after sealing, the lacquer can sometimes taste a little bit dirty. At first, the molars feel a little strange when you bite them. This feeling disappears by itself.


How does sealing affect children?

Teeth sealing is a completely painless procedure. Children often experience it as a real treatment. Most children can tolerate it well.


Does every child’s tooth have to be sealed?

Teeth are only sealed if the dentist expects to see cavities in the grooves.


Brushing your teeth while your molars are sealed

You can continue to brush as usual with a fluoride toothpaste. Just brush the sealed areas as well.


How long does the plastic lacquer from the sealing last?

The lacquer that is deep in the grooves lasts for several years. At the periodic checkup, the dentist will check to see if there is still enough there. If some material has disappeared, it can be replenished.



If a portion of your tooth has been lost or damaged by tooth decay, the dentist can restore it with a filling. A filling prevents further pain and restores function. There are a variety of filling materials, but at our dental office we work almost exclusively with natural tooth-colored resin fillings.


Before the dentist begins filling a cavity, he will discuss the treatment with you. If an anesthetic is needed, the anesthetic must first take effect for a few minutes. Then the dentist removes the affected area. After the element is made clean and dry, the tooth can be filled. Initially, the dentist does a pretreatment which makes the filling adhere better. This adhesive is cured with blue (cold) light. Next, the filling material is modeled into the cleaned hole in the form of a paste. Then it is touched up and with the help of the blue light the filling is cured. If necessary, the filling is shaped with a drill bit and polished to a high gloss.


For 1 to 2 weeks after the filling, you may experience short-lived mild pain from cold or heat. This is because a tooth is made of living material. Drilling into a tooth actually creates a dentin wound that takes some time to heal. The symptoms will diminish over time. If the symptoms worsen, occur spontaneously and are of a throbbing nature, you should contact your dentist. There may be an inflammation under the filling.

Missing teeth or teeth that cannot be saved can be replaced with the help of modern dental technology. This is done by placing implants on which the new teeth are fixed. This solution can be for a single tooth or for several teeth. In this way, your teeth are restored aesthetically and functionally.


Nothing is uglier than a front tooth that is missing. With an implant placed in the jaw and a beautiful ceramic crown, we can faithfully recreate your smile. For missing teeth in the back, we restore chewing ability by placing implants and in this way we also prevent the other teeth from shifting.


The success of this treatment lies in the hands of a well-trained specialist with the necessary experience. For long-term success, strict oral hygiene is necessary. Your dentist can help you with this. Implants give you back a pleasant and comfortable feeling in your mouth!



Because of an extensive cavity in your tooth, the dental nerve can become inflamed or die. This causes an inflammation around the root tip which is accompanied by the necessary pain and discomfort. During an endodontic treatment (=root canal treatment), the specialist will remove the tooth nerve and adequately clean and disinfect the root canal. The opening created during the treatment as access to your root canal will be sealed with a final filling along with the root canal.


After treatment, you may experience short-lived inconvenience for one week. These symptoms will diminish over time. Your dentist will discuss this with you in detail after the treatment.

This specialization within dentistry focuses on the supporting tissues surrounding the teeth, namely the gums and jawbone. These two structures are part of the periodontium. A healthy periodontium is essential for the long-term preservation of teeth and for good overall health. Proper screening based on gum measurements and any additional radiographs are paramount in this regard.


Gum inflammation is characterized by bleeding, red and swollen gums. Since the symptoms are not always visible, gingivitis often goes unnoticed. When a superficial inflammation of the gums persists for too long, it can often spread painlessly into a deeper and extensive gum infection called periodontitis. In this process, the underlying jawbone is affected. In later stages, this manifests itself in loose teeth, the creation of larger spaces between teeth, and receding and/or loose gums.




Artificial dentures come in a variety of shapes, colors and materials. It is extremely important that the chosen shape and color of the elements fit your appearance and personality. Teeth that are too light quickly look unnatural. The gums are imitated with denture plastics, with partly stronger or lesser red tones depending on the natural blood flow in the gums. Take a childhood photo with you to your dentist, showing your own teeth from the past and your smile.


Complete prosthesis

Advantages of a full denture on implants:

  • stability of the prosthesis greatly increases, so comfort is greatly increased
  • doubling of the chewing efficiency
  • quality of life increases because there is more security when eating, talking and smiling.


Removable prosthesis

Partial/Partial prosthesis

Only possible if own teeth are still present. Teeth that are missing are then replaced by artificial teeth. This can be based on metal or resin.


Full prosthesis

Since there are no more own teeth available, this prosthesis attaches by suction or by being attached to implants.


  • affordable
  • no surgical procedure required


  • as the jawbone gradually disappears, the prosthesis must be rebased
  • lack of stability can cause a feeling of insecurity when chewing, talking and laughing



Facings can be used to solve a variety of aesthetic problems:

  • Closure of cracks
  • Lightening of tooth color after inadequate results of bleaching therapy
  • Eliminating small imperfections of the enamel
  • Widen or enlarge anatomical small teeth
  • Touching up heavily padded front teeth that do not look aesthetically pleasing
  • Aligning the dental arch so the patient can have a beautiful and harmonious smile


Types of Facings

Facings can be made of porcelain or composite.



Is indirectly fabricated by the dental technician and then cemented by the dentist



is fabricated by the dentist in the practice. For this, sufficient time is provided to do meticulous and perfected work


What does the dentist actually do?

The dentist removes a fine layer of enamel or old composite and restores the surface of the tooth with composite or indirectly with porcelain. This gives a uniform color, which can be adjusted to give a perfect result.


Maintenance of the resin facings

The maintenance of the facings should be done like the normal maintenance of your teeth: for a perfect maintenance, it is necessary that the patient comes for a thorough examination 2 or 3 times a year. Those consultations serve to remove the small microscopic stains left by food and drinks on the surface of the composite.The surface of the composite is different from the enamel of your teeth. For this, it is important to limit or avoid, for example, coffee, cola, red wine and other drinks with a lot of coloring, colored sweets, bolognaise sauce and smoking.If this is really difficult, it is important to brush the teeth or possibly rinse them with water immediately after eating or drinking.


What are the benefits of the treatment?

  • A low-invasive treatment that preserves the healthy structure of your teeth (conservative treatment)
  • No after-pain
  • Uniform tooth color
  • Immediate result
  • Radiant smile
  • Increase of self-confidence


What are the disadvantages of the treatment?

  • A small piece may break off, which is easily repairable
  • Durability depends on eating and living habits of the patient.


Why crowns?

Crown: For large fillings, a crown may be preferable to restore form and function of the tooth and thus reduce the risk of fracture.
