At Dr Karl H. Böhm Dental Clinic we have been treating our patients for more than 20 years, offering solutions to their ailments or needs in the simplest, most functional, beautiful and durable possible way.
We seek excellence in all the treatments we accomplish.
We invest in the most cutting edge of technology which we join to our daily practice in order to offer the best solution to each situation and to carry it out with the best means, just like excellence has defined us from the first day.
Only strictly necessary treatments are carried out and we try not to use any metals. In the same way, we only x-ray when strongly required and we use the minimum radiation as well as the minimum amount of anaesthetics and medicines.
Endodontics is an odontology branch which studies and treats teeth infections affecting the dental nerves.
When the infectious process or caries reaches the dental pulp it swells, pressure increases and hurts. If it is not mended, infection progresses and necrotizes the dental pulp.
When caries has reached the pulp, endodontics is needed.
It consists of cleaning and removing all the organic material inside the roots canals.
Then, the emptied space is refilled with materials that seal the inside tooth and the infection is solved.
This procedure avoids the extraction of the affected tooth.
Dental implants have completely changed odontology in the last years. They have improved life quality of the people who have lost their teeth since they suppose a replacement for their own pieces, recovering the role and aesthetic of the original ones.
They are small pieces of metal or ceramic with an internal and external thread. Most of them are made of a titanium alloy, a biocompatible material. Its main characteristic is its osteointegration capacity. It fuses together with the bone and becomes part of it. This process takes about 6 to 8 weeks to be consolidated and tough enough to support the tooth or teeth.
Dental implants are the only way to preserve the bone structure and avoid its degeneration once a dental piece has been lost.
Depending on the number of teeth to substitute, different kind of prosthesis may be used. We can also make united pieces. Three teeth bridges supported by a couple of implants can be made to replace a lost tooth. The amount of implants needed will vary depending on the number of teeth to be replaced.
In order to replace all the teeth in a dental arch, two to eight implants will be needed depending on the type of prosthesis required by each patient. The prosthesis can be removable or fix.
Whenever the patient requires it, we can make provisional prosthesis which are placed right after the implants in order to preserve aesthetics.
It is often a psychosocial issue: aesthetics and image problems caused by society demands that give priority to personal image and competiveness.
At Dr Böhm’s Clinic we suggest simple and fast procedures with an impeccable result.
They improve quality of life and health. Moreover, they protect surrounding structures and avoid bone loss and bad positions.
We achieve a whiter or lighter colour through the most cutting edge products. We minimize sensitivity and improve results.
In serious cases, when colour and form can’t be modified, we add a thin ceramic film on the external side of the teeth.
We can do small modifications of colour and shape; we treat small fractures and wear with resins.
Metal is no longer used like before. We use a kind of ceramic called zirconium, white like ivory and more resistant than steel. It provides strength and beauty, both needed.
We know the importance of personal image nowadays. That’s why we restore lost or treated teeth after each intervention, so that patients never leave the clinic without their usual look.
Homeopathy is the most extended holistic medicine: it fully understands the person as a whole (mind, body and spirit) and it stimulates self recovery to re-establish equilibrium.
Holistic or focal neurologic odontology considers the oral cavity as a body mirror. We do have special considerations before making any invasive treatment on teeth or tissues. Manipulation of a tooth might have consequences on the patient’s health.
We prioritize natural or homeopathic substances instead of using conventional medicines. In this way, we avoid mechanical, toxicological or energy blocks.
The majority of odontologic upsets can be considered sharp and therefore can be treated conveniently with the therapeutic arsenal available nowadays.
But in some cases the conventional treatment is ineffective, aggressive or harmful.
Homeopathic treatments are useful for: dental or facial neural pain, untimely bleeding, bad breath, aphta, inflammation, fistula, empyema, etc.
Our wish is to prevent any kind of unpleasant reactions to dental manipulation.
Paediatric odontology prevents and treats children’s oral problems.
Milk teeth are also susceptible to suffer caries and other problems. It is essential to schedule a check up every 6 months since the early teething.
The main objective of paediatric odontology is our children’s dental problems prevention. For that reason, every year we organize a course on prevention to the 4th grade kids at the German School in order to make them understand the importance of a good oral hygiene and the importance of visiting regularly the dentist to detect
problems in anticipation and to avoid complications.
Like you, we know well that the only way to truly motivate a child is understanding his/her wish to discover the world and play. The best age to start visiting the dentist is between 18 months and 2 years old. There’s no problem if the child can’t talk yet because LOLA, an amusing elephant, doesn’t need words to explain what’s going on.
An early examination is not only important to prevent caries, but also to get used to the environment, noises and smells of the dentist without relating it to pain, discomfort or disease.
It is very important not to transfer fears from parents to children.
If you’d like to help your children and prepare them for their first examination, tell them that the dentist is going to count their teeth, that he/she has a teeth shower together with a teeth dryer and an elephant who drinks very fast.
Its aim is to correct the position of the teeth and to control the jawbones growth in order to achieve a correct dental alignment and a good connection between the dental arches.
There is no age limit to enjoy the advantages of an orthodontics treatment as long as the bones and gums surrounding the teeth are in good conditions.
In many cases, cosmetic orthodontics allows treatments in which appliances are not noticeable.
The duration of the orthodontics treatment in adults can be as short as only some months, for instance in cases of moderate teeth crowding.
There is not an ideal age to start the orthodontics treatment. The planning is specific for each patient and has to be customized according to his/her personal circumstances.
Patients who are not willing to wear metallic brackets can choose porcelain aesthetic brackets for their orthodontics. Porcelain brackets are translucent white so that they imitate the natural teeth colour.
A part of the face aging process is the dental appearance. Usually, beauty lies in whatever is young and healthy. Orthodontics rejuvenates the face, bringing a healthier and younger appearance.
Nowadays, there are several systems of invisible orthodontics designed for adults who don’t want to change their lifestyle or being worried about aesthetics during the treatment. Orthodontics in adults is used for achieving an attractive smile, as well as well functioning mouth, in harmony with one’s face and aligned teeth. A good alignment allows a proper daily dental hygiene. All this process takes little longer than a year, in most of the cases.
Periodontics is an odontology branch which treats the illnesses of gums, bones and ligaments in charge of maintaining the tooth firmly in its position.
There are two main diseases: gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis is an infection of the gum that doesn’t affect the tissues supporting the tooth. It is produced by plaque accumulation. If it is not treated, in some patients it may turn into periodontitis, which consists on a progressive destruction of the structures holding the root.
Its consequence is the development of periodontal pockets, holes between the root and the gum, where bacteria accumulate and can’t be remove by a normal brush. The treatment of these illnesses is based on a correct diagnosis made by a painless test and complimentary tests such as X-ray. It is also helpful to know other influential factors related to each patient.
The treatment aims to stop the progress of periodontal tissue destruction. In all cases, treatment starts first with an exhaustive professional cleaning of the root’s surface, followed by a maintenance treatment to keep the results from the initial treatment.
This field includes periodontal cosmetic surgery, which objective is to correct imperfections or deformities of the gum surrounding the tooth. In this way, aesthetic gum disharmonies are corrected and the harmony of the smile returns.
