I studied at the Bernhard Gottlieb University Dental Clinic in Vienna where I also discovered my interest in orthodontics. Thanks to Dr. Rudolf Matheis, my mentor and colleague, I came to dentistry in my youth. For several years now I have been working with him in his practice in Linz.
General dentistry: dental check-ups, fillings, root canal treatments (endodontics), prosthetics (inlays, all-ceramic crowns and bridges)
Orthodontics: invisible and visible braces for children, teenagers and adults
Professional oral hygiene: cleaning and bleaching
Pediatric dentistry: with special attention to the needs of young patients.
Anxious patients: What applies to little ones also applies to big patients.
"Scannen statt Abdruck": Impressions are no longer necessary for braces, crowns and inlays.
Periodontology: Diagnosis and treatment of periodontal damage
Surgical procedures, implants and facial aesthetics: see DDr. Felix Wick
Certified Invisalign practitioner for many years with numerous continuing education courses in treating orthodontic patients of all ages and malocclusions.
Further training with Prof. Martin Richter (Salzburg), Dr. Guido Sampermans (Maastricht) on the topics of segmental arch technique and straightwire appliance, as well as learning the multiloop edgewise appliance method under Prof. Sadao Sato (Japan) and Prof. Rudolf Slavicek (Vienna) for the treatment of more difficult cases (e.g. open bites, asymmetries and class III), mostly without surgical intervention, allow me a wide range of treatment options. Numerous training and further education courses at home and abroad, as well as my past work in the orthodontic department of the Dr. W. Brenner Institute under OA. Dr. Thomas Francan, enable me to fulfill the patients' wishes and ensure the most efficient treatment possible.
with Prof. Manhart (Munich), DSD with Christian Coachman (Brazil) and numerous other advanced trainings at home & abroad, because especially in the field of esthetic dentistry, concerning the materials and their applications, a lot has happened and is continuing to happen...
Continuing education is essential for a dentist because, as in any medical field, there are always new and great things happening. In order to meet the demands of patients and dental progress, I, as well as my colleagues DDr. Felix Wick (Vienna) , Dr. Arthur Marczell (Vienna) and Dr. Rudolf Matheis (Linz) are always staying up to date by attending courses that further our knowledge of the medical field.
With the help of a special intraoral camera, images of the jaw arches or tooth sections are taken. This generates a 3D model on the computer, on the basis of which technical work can be done either by printing a model or directly on the computer. Impression taking with the familiar impression materials and trays is no longer necessary.
Every smile has its own requirements. Fixed or removable as well as visible and invisible braces provide relief. Every tooth and jaw misalignment also has its own symptoms. We can treat poor oral hygiene, due to teeth that are too close together, or muscle tension, back pain, jaw joint problems and premature tooth loss due to overloading of the masticatory system.
First aid for problems with braces! If you have just had your fixed or invisible braces fitted, you may experience temporary pain. The teeth first have to get used to the gentle movement. Particularly when chewing hard foods, you then feel the tension, which can manifest itself as bite sensitivity. Contact us if you have any questions.
Children's dental treatment is a matter of the heart for us in the Vienna office. On the Milk teeth, which starts approximately from the 4. month of life become visible, and the first permanent teeth in the 6. year of life. After all, special attention should be paid to this.
Don't worry, we won't touch your teeth unless you want us to. With us, you always know what the next step is and what is going on. Very often, all it takes for patients to relax is just to get to know us and our tools a little better.
Not all plaque can be combated by home oral hygiene alone. Bacteria that are found in deeper gum pockets or in hard-to-reach places should be removed once or twice a year with professional oral hygiene (dental prophylaxis) to keep the teeth and periodontium healthy.
To treat decayed or damaged teeth, there are direct fillings such as amalgam or plastic composite and indirect fillings such as ceramic or gold inlays, which are made in the laboratory after an impression or scan of the tooth has been taken. We will help you find the right type.
There are different ways to replace missing teeth. For example, all-ceramic crowns or ceramic-veneered solutions for larger defects, bridges to restore one or more teeth, and implants that can replace the entire jaw. We will find a suitable option for your individual needs.
