Nothing is better than the original! Our highest goal is to save your natural teeth rather than replace them. In our practice we treat your teeth in accordance with the newest scientific insights into endodontics (root canal treatments). With the help of microscopic dentistry and the minimally invasive, microsurgical root canal treatment we can save teeth where the infection or inflammation is advanced or where an unsuccessful root canal has previously been attempted.
Dr. Leick is a specialist dentist and has extensive experience in the area of microsurgical endodontics. This is why microscopic diagnostics are standard operating procedure in our dental practice. The precision an OP microscope affords and the use of torque-controlled endodontic motors and endodontic computers in combination with a 3-dimensional root canal preparation technique guarantee your gentle and painless procedure with a high clinical success rate, especially compared to surgical root canal (reimbursed by statutory health insurance coverage).
For us quality is a serious matter. Our therapeutic approach to preserving a tooth with root disease entails significant effort. Treatments such as these lie far over the economic guidelines of the statutory health insurance coverage and are settled on the basis of the private German Scale of Fees for Dentists (“Gebührenordnung für Zahnärzte” GOZ).
Before each endodontic treatment, you receive a detailed and binding cost estimate from us. This gives you cost security beforehand and you know what the preservation of your tooth is worth. The alternative therapy is extraction of the root-diseased tooth. One should consider that this choice brings its own cost: an implant or a bridge is more expensive than a modern root canal treatment.
