Going to the dentist is uncomfortable for some patients when negative experiences have led to anxiety or panic. The fear of being exposed to a situation in which one is at the mercy of isolated pain and unknown procedures is an unpleasant side effect for some people.
Fear patients therefore often postpone regular visits to the dentist and usually wait too long until they come for a check-up or treatment. During this time, necessary measures cannot be implemented and impending illnesses cannot be detected in good time. Due to the long waiting time and the increasing negative influences on the teeth, the affected teeth may possibly be lost.
In his renowned dental practice in Zurich, Dr.med. dent. Jan Munziger specializes in the treatment of anxiety patients and together with his professional dental and anesthesia team also offers short-term treatments under general anesthesia.

We won't let you down in an emergency. With us you can always book your appointments at short notice.
A dental emergency can occur at any time, and the feeling of pain is different in every person. The nervous system is very finely ramified and complex in the neck and head area.
In case of pain in the mouth, you should try to remember when they first occurred and where you first felt them. Also ask yourself:
Are the pains constant? Do you experience the pain while chewing? Or when you have something cold or hot, sweet or sour food? or under other conditions? What exactly?
Any indication to the cause of pain or peculiarities is helpful for us. This will allow us to provide you with the best treatment for your toothache.

We will always show you one or more alternatives for each treatment. And if you have any questions, we will gladly answer them.
We want the best for you. It is important for us that you get a pleasant and safe treatment with us. This also applies to accidents, of course.

Dental hygiene in Zurich in the dental practice at the vineyard, because two teeth brushing on the day is not enough
In order to maintain the health and appearance of your teeth, thorough oral hygiene is important. Thorough and regular brushing alone is not enough to permanently maintain dental health.
Professional dental cleaning and dental hygiene can help here. This should be carried out on a regular basis, because prevention (prophylaxis) is the nuts and bolts.
A regular dental hygiene helps to prevent caries and periodontitis effectively. How?
The removal of soft and hard dental surfaces as well as the removal of tartar prevents bacterial diseases of the periodontium (tooth holding apparatus).
Both the dental health and the appearance of the teeth (the dental optics) benefit from this treatment.
Brushing teeth twice a day creates the basis for good oral hygiene. Daily cleaning of the tooth spheres with dental floss or interdental brushes improves the situation.
Unfortunately, with these two measures only a maximum of two thirds of the tooth surfaces are reached. This means that not all dental pads can be removed.
Even with an electric toothbrush this is not enough!
Lack of dental hygiene leads to the fact that food residues are easier to reach and deposit in tooth intermediates. Diseases of the teeth and the periodontium (tooth holding apparatus) are the result.
Professional Dental cleaning is an important component of your dental hygiene
Professional Dental cleaning is an integral part of dental hygiene. This is how it usually works:
Stubborn dental coverings are removed,
Cleaning of tooth intermediates
Finally, the teeth will be polished.
After that, you can easily clean the teeth at home again, because after a professional dental cleaning, bacteria can no longer hold on to the tooth surfaces as easily.
In addition to professional dental cleaning, we recommend specific measures to reduce your personal caries and periodontitis risk significantly.
Dental hygiene or professional dental cleaning?
The two measures are different:
Professional tooth cleaning is done on the surface. The dental plaque is removed, the teeth are cleaned – but only to the edge of the gum
Dental hygiene also eliminates bacteria that have settled in gum pockets or below the gums. Only specially trained dental hygienists are allowed to perform
Patients with periodontitis should pay particular attention to good dental hygiene, since teeth, gums and especially the periodontal pockets are heavily populated by bacteria.
In our practice in Zurich, dental hygienists have acquired extensive knowledge in the field of diagnostics and treatment of periodontitis, and they are happy to advise you personally.
Dental hygiene Zurich in the dentist's surgery
On the Vineyard – how it works
In dental hygiene, the teeth are first examined. In the diagnosis of periodontitis, the depth of the gum pockets for each tooth is also measured.
Dental plaque and Tartar, which have formed above and below the gums as well as in the gum pockets, are carefully but gently removed.
Our dental hygienists use ultrasound and mechanical instruments to achieve the best possible result.
Next, clean the tooth intermediates with dental floss or fine interdental brushes. Now the tooth surfaces can be polished smoothly.
Lastly, they wear a special fluoride varnish that delays the emergence of new bacteria-inhabited dental surfaces and plaque.
Such comprehensive dental hygiene as we offer in our dental practice in Zurich has a long-lasting effect. You should schedule about one hour.
In the course of the treatment we also give you tips on how to optimize your oral hygiene at home.
Are there any risks? This treatment is considered to be very low risk.
Patients with heart valve impulses are advised to discuss with the dentist in advance whether antibiotic treatment is required.
Patients who take blood-thinning medications should also discuss this with the dentist in advance so that an increased bleeding during treatment is properly interpreted.
In order to achieve an optimal result, you should ensure that the treatment is performed by a dentist and a specially trained dental hygienist.
How often? We recommend dental hygiene or professional dental cleaning at a distance of 3 to 6 months. Also, for checking your own dental plaster technique and daily oral hygiene at home.

By means of a teeth whitening, the gentle and sustainable whitening of the tooth shade is possible within a short time. In the process, the use of active oxygen gently removes coloring pigments and the tooth is lightened until the desired effect is achieved. The intensity of bleaching can be determined individually by the patient. It has also been scientifically proven that professional teeth whitening under dental control does not damage teeth or gums. Thus, tooth discoloration can be resolved quickly and easily.
The Power-Bleaching is performed by a dental assistant in one session. The gentle application takes 40 to 60 minutes.
Alternatively, you can opt for home bleaching and whiten your teeth at home. For this purpose, an individual, precisely fitting plastic rail is made for you, which covers your teeth exactly. After detailed instructions for handling, you can then independently apply your bleaching set at home.
Inlays (or Onlays) are dental fillings, which are manufactured in the laboratory to fit each tooth. Ceramic inlays lead to the longest-lasting and aesthetically best results for larger defects on the posterior teeth. After the tooth has been specially ground, an impression is taken. In the dental laboratory, the dental technician manufactures the inlays and adjusts them to the natural color of the teeth. They are then inserted into the tooth using a tooth-colored composite (tooth-colored plastic filling).
Veneers are paper-thin, translucent ceramic or plastic bowls. These are glued to the tooth and thus obscure "unsightly" places. Veneers are usually applied to the incisors. They cover discoloration perfectly, are ideal for supplying broken corners, can create new tooth shapes and are hardly distinguishable from natural teeth. An advantage of veneers over crowns is that significantly less healthy tooth substance has to be abraded to stick the veneer.
Composite is a material with a high proportion of fine ceramic particles. This Material possesses the good modeling ability of plastic and the excellent abrasion resistance of ceramics. These properties give composite restorations a natural and lasting aesthetic. Composite is used as an amalgam substitute for fillings of all kinds.
A crown consists either of a metal core, which is coated with ceramic or entirely made of ceramic. Crowns are mainly used when large parts of the tooth are destroyed by a pronounced caries. The tooth is prepared for the crowning: The tooth is sanded both circularly and in height. The tooth stump is then formed and the crown is made by the dental technician.
Bridges serve to replace missing teeth. They are used for small and medium tooth-limited gaps in the anterior and posterior region. In this case, the crowns described above form the so-called pillars of the bridge, also called abutment teeth. An intermediate link connecting the two pillars replaces the missing tooth (teeth). A precondition for the supply of a bridge is that the teeth to be crowned are suitable as abutment teeth.
The dental implant is a kind of artificial tooth root, which is usually made of titanium and is available in various shapes and coatings. Implants offer a variety of options for dentures: they can be provided with single crowns, crown blocks or bridge constructions. In addition, they can serve as pillars for prostheses.
Under local anesthetic, an implant is inserted into the tooth gap in the jawbone. Afterwards, this must heal in about four to six months. If no complications occur during this period (for example inflammations), the tooth structure (likethe tooth crown), the so-called superstructure, are anchored to the implant. Such a supply thus consists of an artificial tooth root, the implant, and the artificial tooth crown, the superstructure.
Implant-supported solutions are the best way to restore a tooth in its natural way. In addition to a high degree of aesthetics, implant supplies ensure a high degree of chewing comfort and prevent the bone substance from decaying at the sites where there is no longer any natural tooth root due to ingrowth into the jawbone. In addition, they ensure a long shelf life. Long-term studies come to results of 15 to 20 years and more. Prerequisite for such a success, however, are sufficient and healthy jawbone substance as well as a good oral hygiene.
The advantages of an implant over a bridge:
-For a bridge, the healthy neighbouring teeth must be ground to hold the bridge. This is not the case with implants.
-The aesthetic is excellent.
Implants allow room for an absolutely firm bite. Better than with a natural tooth, because the artificial root is made of sturdy titanium and firmly anchored in the jawbone.
-Very high, almost unlimited service life.
-Not the slightest impairment of natural language.
-Very gentle surgical procedure.
Very good body compatibility.
Implants give you back your natural smile.
Implants are usually not immediately resilient. This means they have to grow into the jaw for a period of 0 to 6 months.
Implants can only be used where there is enough bone.
