Conservative dentistry deals with lesions in the tooth enamel and the dentin caused by such things as decay and trauma. The goal of the therapy is the conservation of the natural teeth, maintaining their condition from both an aesthetic and functional point of view.

Direct restorations in nanohybrid and flowable composites and compomers.
This dental specialisation is concerned with endodontic therapy, or more precisely with the tooth space, which contains the dental pulp. Endodontic therapy is indicated when lesions (due to decay, trauma, etc.) have caused irreversible damage to the tooth pulp, even to the point of necrosis.

Dental treatments and revisions with the help of surgical microscope, apicectomies.
Removal of pins or fractured root canal instruments, closing of perforated roots, usage of rotary NiTi instruments, 3D closure of channels with heated gutta percha.
Periodontology is a dental specialty that studies the various soft and hard structures that surround the tooth (periodontal ligaments) as well as diseases linked to them.

Mucogingival and resective surgery, open curettage and pre-prosthetic surgery, GBR (guided bone regeneration), GTR (guided tissue regeneration), recession coverage, and connective tissue transplants.
Pediatric dentistry is the branch of dentistry that deals with treating children.
The focus is on prevention of carious lesions on the part of the dentist or dental hygienist (giving advice about a healthy diet, fluoride application, sealing teeth, dental hygiene education, early detection of jaw abnormalities) and working together with young patients.

Dental Treatment in Childhood
This refers to all treatments performed that are associated with the removal of dental deposits and pigments, which have accumulated over time and cannot be avoided with a simple brush.
• Sealing of deep tooth fissures for caries prevention
• Scaling: supragingival and subgingival calculus removal
• Root planing and closed courettage
• Fluoridation, tooth sensitivity treatments
• Chairside bleaching: (tooth whitening)
For more information, please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_hygiene
Teeth cleaning, fluoride prophylaxis, sealants, prophylaxis instructions, desensitization, hygiene tips, and tooth whitening.
Fixed dental prostheses are applied and used when the original teeth must be replaced due to loss as well as aesthetic and/or functional damage. In the planning and implementation phase of a new prosthesis, see crowns and bridges, the following points are considered:
Functionality: regarding the restoration of proper chewing function
Longevity: the denture prosthesis must withstand the test of time
Harmlessness: the dentures must be made of materials that are biocompatible yet neither susceptible to erosion or corrosion
Aesthetics: The artificial teeth are as similar as possible to the natural teeth and suit the appearance of the patient

Indirect restorations, crowns and bridges in precious alloy or pressable ceramics (zirconia and aluminium oxide). Screw-locking zirconium and titanium crowns and bridges on implants. Individually CAD/CAM fabricated implant components in titanium or zirconium.
Tooth-mucosa-supported dentures, which can be removed for hygiene. Partial and complete dentures. The jaw atrophy is compensated by the strength of the plastic pad.
For more information, please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dentures
Complete dentures, model casting dentures in Cr-Co or gold, and synthetic dentures.
Combined prostheses are called combined because the prosthetic restoration is partly fixed and partly removable. The fixed part is cemented onto the natural teeth and screwed onto implants. The removable part is anchored to the fixed part in a reversible way, allowing the patient optimal access for hygiene.
Partial dentures with precision attachments, telescopic prostheses made with milling, and overdentures on teeth and implants.
Implant dentistry is the surgical positioning of titanium screws in the jawbone as a replacement for missing tooth roots. Implant uses range from anchoring individual crowns, bridges, and dentures all the way up to implant-supported whole-jaw restorations.

Dental implants with total or local anaesthesia or intravenous sedation, reconstructive bone surgery. Implant surgeries are planned using the latest 3D software. Post-extract implantology and/or immediate loading, guided surgery.
Porcelain veneers or facets are thin ceramic shells that are custom-made for the patient and can be attached onto the labial surface of the front and canine teeth. The teeth onto which the top piece is affixed may be ground slightly or even not at all (no prep veneers). The removal of tooth substance is minimal and, when possible, limited to the melt strength in order to maintain optimal conditions for adhesion of the ceramic.
Veneers, inlays and onlays in ceramic or composite, chairside bleaching for vital teeth, walking bleach for non-vital teeth.
Oral surgery deals with the extraction of damaged teeth, root fragments, displaced or impacted teeth; with root tip resections, which is the removal of the root tips; the removal of cysts and tumours in the oral cavity; with pre-prosthetic surgery such as sinus lifts, or maxillary sinus elevations with the use of the patient’s own bone or bone substitute material, GBR (guided bone regeneration).
For more information, please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_surgery
Tooth extractions, extractions of displaced and impacted teeth, cysts, tissue samples for biopsy, GTR/GBR guided tissue and bone regeneration.
Oral and maxillofacial surgery is a medical and surgical specialty that requires specific training. It deals with all the pathologies of the facial bones be they of a congenital, traumatic, degenerative or neoplastic nature.
For more information, please see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oral_and_maxillofacial_surgery
Oral surgery, perioral facial surgery, plastic surgery of the face, head and neck, face-lifting, fillers, blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, orthognathic and neoplastic surgery.
Orthodontics is a special branch of dentistry that deals with various anomalies of position, i.e. the positioning of the teeth or jawbone. Only dentists and specialists in orthodontics perform orthodontics. The goal of the treatment is identification, prevention, and removal of any anomalies in order to restore functionality to the masticatory apparatus and/or to guarantee the aesthetic appearance of the jawbone and the profile of the face.

Fixed and removable orthodontic treatments, ceramic braces, lingual orthodontics, invisible orthodontics.
For interventions under total anaesthesia, we turn to private clinics that are equipped with an operating room and an anaesthesiologist and that are able to provide for inpatient postoperative stays. Minor procedures are carried out with the assistance of an anaesthesiologist who administers intravenous sedation on an outpatient basis.
