OUR SPECIALISMS

M2 dental practitioners offers comprehensive, high-quality oral care to everyone, all under one roof. In addition to day-to-day dentistry, both practices offer preventive, cosmetic and specialised oral care. In addition to general dentistry, our dentists usually have their own specialism, which means that we can offer a broad range of straightforward and (more) complex treatments in our own trusted practices.

Aesthetic dentistry

BEAUTIFUL TEETH


Aesthetic dentistry is all about enhancing the beauty of the teeth. Anyone can have beautiful, strong and vibrant teeth. Knowledge and skills in this area have increased considerably, and continue to improve all the time. State-of-the-art technology and materials allow us to replace old and unsightly fillings with invisible restorations. Your personal situation will dictate which materials we use. We can also enhance the shape and condition of your teeth using porcelain or composite facings, and close up bothersome gaps for a beautiful row of nicely proportioned teeth. If your teeth are beautifully shaped and properly positioned in your mouth, we can use bleaching techniques to whiten your teeth if necessary. Once the treatments are complete, you will have a radiant smile and beautiful teeth!

Restorative dentistry

COMPREHENSIVE TREATMENT PLAN


You may suffer from congenital defects or dental problems that develop over time. Restorative dentistry can help to restore the health, function and aesthetics of your teeth through a range of dentistry disciplines. We will schedule a 20-minute consultation to establish the cause of your dental problems and see if a comprehensive treatment plan can be arranged. If it can, we will make two follow-up appointments of 60 minutes each. During the first of these appointments, we will gather as much information from you as possible, through interviews, a thorough examination of your mouth, x-rays and photographs and models of your teeth. We use state-of-the-art technology such as digital analysis (digital smile design) to determine the ideal shape and position of your teeth. We will be able to make a diagnosis and draw up a personal treatment plan for you once we have analysed all of the information. At the second appointment, we will go through the plan with you, discuss any options, planning and costs so that you fully understand the treatments proposed, and why they are important. We can also show you a mock-up to give you an idea of the end result that we hope to achieve. This approach allows you to make an informed decision on whether or not to go ahead with the plan. If you give your consent, an interdisciplinary team comprising specialists such as an implantologist, restorative dentist and endodontist will get to work. A single dentist will manage the team and remain your point of contact throughout.

Implantology

IMPLANTS


When it comes to replacing (missing) teeth, a synthetic root (implant) is a serious and reliable treatment option. Implants are typically made from titanium and are inserted into the jawbone. Titanium is the most suitable material as it is not rejected by the body and fuses successfully into the bone (osseointegration). Once osseointegration has taken place, the dentist will produce a replacement for the lost tooth that will be entirely indistinguishable from a real tooth. Plus, you’ll never experience cavities in the tooth!

M2 click prosthesis

People without their own teeth sometimes suffer from loose dentures. These people may have concerns about losing their teeth when speaking and have difficulty when eating. The M2 click prosthesis may offer a solution. The implantologist will place two to four implants into the jaw onto which the click prosthesis can then be clicked.

The implantologist is accredited by the Dutch Association of Oral Implantology. The Nederlandse Vereniging voor Orale Implantologie (NVOI).

Endodontics

ROOT CANAL
TREATMENTS


An endodontist treats the vascularised tissue inside the tooth (dental pulp). This hollow space (root canal) contains blood vessels and a nerve, which may become inflamed. If it does, you will experience a sudden (usually at night) throbbing pain due to pressure on the bone around the root of the tooth. This pain is difficult to suppress with painkillers and will only go away if the inflamed root canal is cleaned and filled. If we do this, we can preserve the tooth. Both M2 practices have special microscopes to allow dentists to treat root canal problems with microscopic precision. All qualified dentists are able to carry out root canal treatments. For more complicated treatments however, such as problems in immature teeth or re-treatment of teeth that have previously undergone root canal treatment, M2 has a specialist in root canal treatment (endodontist).

The endodonist is accredited by the Dutch Association of Endodontics. The Nederlandse vereniging voor Endodontologie (NvvE).

Periodontics

GUM PROBLEMS


Many people suffer with problems in their vascularised gums, frequently the first sign of inflammation (gingivitis or periodontitis). If these complaints are dealt with quickly and properly, we can prevent dental problems and stop the loss of teeth early on. A periodontist specialises in treating problems relating to the jawbone, gums and periodontal ligament (fibres that hold the tooth firmly into the jaw). Inflammation of the gums and other tissue around the gums is professionally treated according to an established perio-protocol and defects are corrected after healing. In addition to dentists, we have a professional team of dental hygienists and (perio-) prevention assistants who help prevent and treat gum problems.

Orthodontics

BRACES


Beautiful, regular teeth help to ensure a radiant appearance and stay with you throughout your life. More and more adults consider this important and, like our younger patients, are improving their teeth by using braces. There are a number of reasons to choose a brace, both medical and cosmetic. Having beautiful teeth makes people feel good inside. Teeth that don’t match up, however, can grind and clench. This can lead to excessive and uneven wear and cause problems in the temporomandibular joint and masseter muscles. Crooked or uneven teeth are also much harder to clean, with a higher probability of developing dental decay and inflammation of the gums. In addition, improperly positioned teeth and jaws can also cause speech problems. We use fixed (catches on the teeth) or detachable braces as well as external braces and activators. We also offer less visible brace treatment using invisalign technology, where we click virtually invisible covers over the teeth (aligners) in order to reorganise the teeth. Experienced M2 orthodontic dentists (dentists who deal with braces) undergo regular training at home and abroad to learn about the newest treatment techniques and technologies and recent brace innovations.

Restorative dentistry

WEAR


People want to and can keep their own teeth for longer. A number of things can cause toothwear. Normal use causes slight wear, but bad habits such as grinding, clenching and nail biting can cause wear to occur more rapidly. Improper cleaning and the effects of acid (erosion) can also cause the teeth to deteriorate. Fizzy drinks and fruit juice cause erosion, but acid regurgitation is also a cause. In the first stage, the tooth enamel (the outer white layer of the teeth) becomes damaged. As toothwear continues, the layer beneath the enamel (dentine) becomes exposed and begins to wear. Unfortunately, worn dental tissue does not grow back, so our dentists will look closely for signs of toothwear during periodic examinations. They will also examine for cavities and look at the health of the gums. If necessary, they will take preventive action. If there are signs of (extreme) toothwear, we will compile a plan to help restore the dental tissue and prevent further deterioration.

Dental prosthetics

DENTURES


A full prosthesis (dentures) restores chewing and speech functions in a patient who has lost all of his teeth. The dentures sit detached in the mouth and can be removed. A partial prosthesis is used when the patient has lost only some of his natural teeth. The prosthesis is supported partly by the soft tissue in the mouth and partly by the natural teeth or implants. As each mouth and jaw is different, prostheses are made to measure. M2 dental practitioners offers full and partial prostheses in both practices as part of a 4-6 step plan. Our dental prosthetist will examine your mouth carefully and take precise measurements to ensure as natural looking a prosthesis as possible as, in addition to chewing and speech functions, the way that the prosthesis looks is also important. If all of a patient’s teeth have been lost, the jaw will shrink, which will cause the prosthesis to lose grip over time and the teeth to become loose. The M2 click prosthesis may offer a solution. The implantologist will place two to four implants into the jaw and then simply click the teeth onto the implants.

Snoring and sleep apnoea

DENTAL
SLEEP THERAPY


Many women and men of all ages make a sawing, murmuring, humming sound when they breathe while sleeping, known as snoring. This noise can sometimes be so loud that it disturbs others. As people age, they are increasingly likely to snore, and to snore louder. Some who snore also stop breathing at times, for a minimum of 10 seconds (apnoea). During these pauses, the brain emits an alarm signal, causing the snorer to enter a lighter sleep or even wake up (feeling groggy and panicked). Overall, this reduces the quality of sleep and people no longer feel rested when they wake, plus they feel tired and sleepy throughout the day, causing them to be irritable and experience memory and concentration problems as well as suffer depression and loss of libido. In more extreme cases, sleep apnoea can sustain, exacerbate or even cause diabetes and cardiovascular disorders. Click here for more information on sleep disorders. Through polysomnography, an ENT specialist can confirm obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). Perform a sleep apnoea self-test here. M2 dental practitioners works in conjunction with the Dutch Sleep Institute, Reinier de Graaf guesthouse (Voorburg/Delft) and the Alrijne hospital (Leiden). Our sleep therapy practitioner can treat snoring and mild to moderate OSA with an MRA, a brace that holds the lower jaw in a more forward position while sleeping, and keeps the windpipe open. This helps to stop snoring and reduce pauses in breathing. In the case of OSA, the MRA is fully covered by your insurance. The sleep therapy practitioner is accredited by the Dutch Society of Dental Sleep Therapy.

Gnathology

TEMPOROMANDIBULAR JOINT (JAW)
PROBLEMS


Temporomandibular joint problems may seem innocent but can be very bothersome and have far-reaching consequences. The temporomandibular joint is a complex joint comprising the convex mandible, the articular disc and the concave temporal bone of the skull, all of which are connected by muscles. Grinding or clenching teeth can cause pain in the jaw. A dentist specialised in treating temporomandibular joint problems (gnathologist) can produce a splint to help relax the jaw muscles more so that pain in the ear and the joint is reduced. The gnathologist can also treat patients who suffer from reduced chewing function in their teeth. The use of crowns and bridges in the mouth helps to provide balance for the jaw and the temporomandibular joint. This total rehabilitation also helps to restore chewing function.
