Children’s Preventive Care

Children’s development is sometimes challenged by breathing issues – snoring, sleep apnea – associated with grinding teeth, clenching and the unequal development of the jaws. The Consensus Statement of the American Academy of Sleep Medicine shows that up to 30% of children suffer from some type of sleep problem:

  • Age 2-15: Nightmares – 30%
  • Age 3-10: Sleepwalking – 25-30%. 
  • Insomnia: 23%
  • Bruxism (teeth grinding): 10%
  • Sleep Enuresis (Bedwetting)

A correlation exists between the quality of sleep, breathing, bite problems and the overall brain development. 

Our practice together with Munich International School and Bavarian International School is screening the children between 3 and 18 years old for breathing/grinding issues and is working together with Ear-Nose-Throat and Orthodontics specialists to ensure the proper development, optimum breathing and protection of the tooth structures.

Smile Design

Smile aesthetics is a concept developed to explain the visual quality of the smile when people elicit emotions and interact with other people. The emotions generated through aesthetic interaction are completely opposite than intellectual reasoning. However, we use science to explain the “fabric” of aesthetics and how to create it.  In most cases, Nature offers an infinite supply of knowledge how to recreate aesthetics.

It is important for us, the clinicians, to understand what patients are experiencing while interacting with aesthetics. The key is taking the time to establish a communication with the patient so the personal preferences, the individual cultural and social perception of beauty can be discovered. Only than the doctor can tailor the treatment for a result that not only restores the form and function but is so well integrated that it is invisible.

How we actually do it?
