What is the private practice in Frankfurt?
The exclusive premises at the Goethestraße location have been specially designed for private patients. Here, the focus is on exhaustive diagnostics and consultation extending beyond the services normally covered by health insurance. On request, these services can also be provided for private patients in Pfungstadt. In many cases, this is necessary for safe and successful treatment.
What is Jung Dental Clinic FIRST CLASS?
Jung Dental Clinic FIRST CLASS, our exclusive luxury concept, comprises a range of services tailored to patients on tight schedules who lack time for themselves. Or for all who simply wish to indulge themselves: our chauffeur will pick you up at the train station or airport and drive you directly to our clinic in Pfungstadt (near Frankfurt airport) or to our other office located at Goethestraße 34 in the centre of Frankfurt. You can relax in your own private waiting room, far away from the hustle and bustle. For more complicated treatments or upon request, our medical staff will be at your service around the clock in our patient suite. Otherwise, we are always happy to arrange overnight accommodations for you at one of our nearby partner hotels. You’ll be well taken care of without having to lift a finger.
Do I really need professional teeth cleaning?
Bacterial plaque plays a crucial role in the development of oral conditions such as tooth decay, gingivitis or gum disease. Bacteria metabolise sugar, creating acid as a waste product. Over time, this acid causes the demineralisation of the hard tooth substance and inflamed gums, often accompanied by bad breath. Our specialists in professional teeth cleaning or specific prophylactic treatment offer thorough and intense cleaning for your teeth. Their experience and expertise means that they are able to remove hard and discoloured plaque and the associated bacteria more effectively than your dental hygiene at home. We recommend getting your teeth cleaned professionally at least every six months.
How often should I go for a check-up?
You should go for a dental check-up at least once per year to identify and treat tooth decay or gum inflammation at an early stage, before they get the chance to cause more serious damage. The optimal solution is to arrange a check-up with your dentist each time you go for professional teeth cleaning. This saves you time and ensures that your teeth are subject to regular observation.
What ingredients should toothpaste contain?
As a rule, any toothpaste helps to remove plaque and leftover food particles and other deposits from the teeth, which helps to promote oral health and freshen the breath. Fluoride is a particularly important ingredient contained in most commercial brands of toothpaste. It acts to strengthen the tooth enamel to make it harder and more resistant, e.g. to prevent tooth decay. Toothpaste also contains traces of tenside as a foaming agent. Tenside allows the toothpaste with its active ingredients to be distributed evenly over all the teeth when brushing so that plaque is effectively removed. However, caution should be exercised when it comes to toothpaste promising whitening effects. These can contain microabrasives that scrape away the tooth enamel like sandpaper. Those who wish to whiten their teeth the safe and gentle way (bleaching) are better off going to their dentist. In addition to the ingredients already mentioned, toothpaste also contains other substances: these are added to strengthen the tooth enamel, for an antibacterial effect and to give the toothpaste a fresh taste.
What is periodontitis and why is it so dangerous?
Periodontitis, commonly referred to as periodontal or gum disease, refers to a class of acute or chronic inflammatory diseases affecting the periodontium – that is, the soft tissue and bone surrounding and supporting the teeth. The inflammation is caused by bacteria present in the gum pockets and periodontal pockets. The immune system reacts to the bacterial enzymes attacking the periodontal ligament, supporting fibre of the tooth and jawbone with an inflammatory response aimed at destroying the bacteria. However, the inflammation can have far-reaching effect on many parts of the body. The oral hygiene, age, general health status, lifestyle and genetic predisposition of the patient are all factors influencing the severity of this disease.
The risk of suffering from periodontitis varies from person to person. Early detection is the best way to prevent or stop periodontitis in its early stages. Cutting-edge tests help to identify risks before irreversible damage can occur. This ensures effective prevention against tooth loss and the necessary dental restoration.
What if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?
The hormonal changes taking place in the body may accelerate the development of tooth defects or make you more susceptible to inflammation of the gums. Continuous monitoring by a dentist and regular professional teeth cleaning is thus particularly important when you are pregnant or breastfeeding. Particular attention should also be paid to dental hygiene at home: we recommend cleaning your teeth twice per day and flossing once. You can also chew dental gum after mealtimes to improve your dental hygiene.
Can I also get implants if I’m suffering from periodontitis and bone loss?
Acute periodontitis must be treated as a matter of course to eliminate the health risks to the body as a whole and to stop any potential bone loss. Depending on the severity of the periodontitis, implants can be placed immediately or bone augmentation procedures are carried out. These have varied healing phases depending on the extent of the treatment. The modern and highly-specialised dentistry we practise at the Jung Dental Clinic means that implants are generally possible in all cases.
Is DVT or CT imaging necessary before an implant?
It is highly advisable to carry out DVT imaging to identify the exact location of the nerves and the bone quality and volume in order to ensure safe treatment. It is also important to plan the right treatment to achieve the desired result. Exact knowledge of the situation is critical for being able to perform treatments safely and efficiently.
Can I get implants if I’m taking anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medication?
As in all operations, implants can cause bleeding. However, this presents no challenge for an experienced implantologist. If a patient is taking anticoagulants, these must be discontinued temporarily in consultation with the consulting physician. A detailed interview is carried out before each treatment to clearly understand the individual’s medical history.
Are implants safe?
The right planning, thanks to precise 3D diagnostics, and the decades of experience our team has gained from performing thousands of procedures guarantee that we will find the best solution for your new teeth. Before performing actual implant surgery, each procedure is rehearsed virtually on the computer to identify potential problems in time so that they can be avoided completely. Our primary objective is to make your treatment in our dental clinic as safe, pleasant and comfortable for you as possible.
I’m a smoker. Can I still get implants?
Yes, implants are generally possible for smokers, too. However, the long-term prognosis for the implants differs considerably in comparison to non-smokers. Smoking also has a negative effect on the supply of blood to bones and soft tissue, meaning that the healing phase may be longer. The high-quality implants used at the Jung Dental Clinic are significantly improved through a cutting-edge mixture of materials, leading to fewer complications during the healing process. In the long term, smokers with dental implants should consider smoking less and attending regular appointments for specific prophylactic treatment and clinical tests to reduce risks.
How long does it take for implants to heal?
In optimal situations, implants can even be fitted with crowns on the same day. In other cases, the regular healing phase lasts approximately three months. This can extend to nine months in the case of bone transplants. The process is generally very patient-specific and there are many factors involved; as a result, our dental clinic always responds to the needs of each individual patient in order to achieve an optimal result.
Are implants painful?
Thanks to our anaesthesiology department, we can perform all dental procedures safely and comfortably under general anaesthesia, if necessary. This way, we can provide efficient treatment and save you the hassle of multiple appointments. You won’t remember anything of the treatment itself. Implants under local anaesthesia are also pain-free.
Our primary goal is to ensure that you feel no pain after an operation – and that it remains that way. Modern dentistry and pain management are there to help if you wish.
How do you look after dental implants?
Dental implants fuse with the bone in the jaw. They don’t just offer a completely natural feel – they can also be cleaned just like your natural teeth: brushing twice per day, regular flossing and mouthwash and professional teeth cleaning at least twice per year.
I have diabetes and want to get dental implants. Is this possible?
Yes, dental implants are also possible if you have diabetes.
I have osteoporosis. Can I still get implants?
Yes, dental implants are also possible if you have osteoporosis. They can even stabilise the jawbone and offer a prophylactic effect.
How long do implants last?
With optimal dental care (including both brushing at home and regular professional teeth cleaning) and oral hygiene, at the Jung Dental Clinic we stand by our claim: “The implant for life”.
Do implants differ in quality?
Yes, there are differences – mainly in the material and design. As a consequence, the Jung Dental Clinic has for a long time now used tried-and-tested, exclusively high-quality implants.
What is the difference between local and general anaesthesia?
Local anaesthesia only affects the tooth or area of your mouth being treated; you otherwise remain fully conscious. Under general anaesthesia you’re completely unconscious and won’t remember anything of the treatment. You are closely monitored by our in-house anaesthesiology department – before, during and after your treatment.
Who is responsible for general anaesthesia at the Jung Dental Clinic?
General anaesthesia is administered exclusively by our in-house anaesthesiologists, emergency physicians and specialist medical professionals. Safety is our highest priority, which is why general anaesthesia at our clinic is only carried out under the watchful eye of experienced anaesthesiologists.
Who can be treated under general anaesthesia?
In principle, any healthy person can be treated under general anaesthesia. For this purpose, we first carry out a detailed interview to understand your state of health and any pre-existing conditions. In some cases, we also consult the specialist opinion of your family doctor or another specialist medical professional.
How will I be monitored when I’m under general anaesthesia?
Our anaesthesiologists monitor all of your vital signs and analyse key information using the state-of-the-art equipment in our anaesthesiology department. The depth of anaesthesia is defined by computer-controlled syringe drivers (pumps), meaning that the anaesthesia is particularly gentle for the body and you rapidly regain consciousness.
Why can’t you eat or drink for six hours before anaesthesia?
Anaesthesia also affects protective reflexes (such as coughing) and swallowing reflexes in addition to consciousness and pain perception. To prevent the stomach contents being inhaled unconsciously, no food or larger amounts of liquids should be ingested for at least six hours prior to anaesthesia. In addition, patients should refrain from smoking three hours prior to treatment. If necessary, a small quantity of water can be drunk a maximum of two hours before treatment, and at the latest then should patients completely refrain from ingesting liquids.
Are the costs of dental treatment under anaesthesia covered by health insurance?
This is heavily dependent on your insurance tariff, so there is no general answer to this question. However, in the majority of cases the costs of general anaesthesia are not reimbursed.
Will I be nauseated after anaesthesia?
In the case of our gentle anaesthesia (TIVA), side effects such as nausea and dizziness are extremely rare.
When can I go home following general anaesthesia?
You can go home as soon as our anaesthesiologists have examined you. In most cases this does not take long. However, this is always dependent on your individual condition and the length of treatment.
Is there a chance I might wake up during anaesthesia?
No, there is no need to worry about this. Using our modern equipment, we constantly monitor the depth of anaesthesia and adjust the dosage accordingly.
What causes dental phobia and what is your advice for anxious patients?
Dental phobia is usually caused by unpleasant and painful experiences at the dentist in the past – often in early childhood. Approximately 80% of adults suffer from some form of dental phobia. Our objective is to conquer the fear in each patient by taking the time to respond to your individual needs. In addition, we provide a comfortable ambiance to ensure that you feel like you’re at a hotel and not a clinic. Our tip for patients with dental phobia: be courageous and schedule your next dentist appointment. Only together can we overcome your fear.
I have serious dental phobia. Would treatment under general anaesthesia be appropriate for me?
Provided their general physical condition permits it, general anaesthesia is an excellent way for patients with dental phobia to receive treatment. You will remember nothing of the treatment and will simply wake up with beautiful new teeth.
Can all of the necessary dental procedures be handled in just one visit?
Our efficient treatment concept constantly aims to group as many treatment steps as possible into a single appointment. In many cases, the entire treatment can be performed in a single session. In this way, we aim to make your treatment as pleasant as possible.
Do you offer a shuttle to the airport/train station?
As part of our Jung Dental Clinic FIRST CLASS concept, we offer an individual, in-house chauffeur service – in particular to nearby Frankfurt Airport or the surrounding hotels and train stations.
Is Wi-Fi available at the clinic?
Yes, you have free Wi-Fi access during your stay at our clinic. Simply ask one of our clinic staff.
Are overnight accommodations available at the Jung Dental Clinic?
Yes, our clinic has its own patient suite. For more complicated treatments or upon request, our medical staff will be at your service around the clock in our patient suite. Otherwise, we are always happy to arrange overnight accommodations for you at one of our nearby partner hotels.
Do you offer financing solutions for dental treatment?
Yes, in cooperation with our partners we offer attractive instalment and financing options with favourable special conditions. We will be happy to provide you with personal and comprehensive advice as part of a face-to-face consultation.
High-quality, state-of-the-art dentistry has its price. But taking proper care of your teeth and gums for a lifelong healthy smile is always a sound investment. It also translates into better health overall and an improved quality of life. Our experience has shown that no two patients have exactly the same needs or situation. One size simply does not fit all when it comes to price, which is why the cost issue is always best addressed in the context of a personal consultation and based on the specific circumstances. Low-interest financing options are available. A variety of instalment plans are available to suit your needs.
