WE OFFER YOU THE FULL RANGE OF PEDIATRIC DENTISTRY

Initial examinations

In order for us to be able to build a solid and long-term relationship between the child and the practitioner, the first meeting is set to get to know each other and to do all the necessary examinations.

Nitrous oxide treatment

If things get a little more difficult, we are professionals in carrying out nitrous oxide treatments. This allows anxious children to be treated well and safely.

General anaesthesia

In the case of complex cases or major interventions, we can also carry out general anesthesia directly on site. That requires routine, experience and a well-established team.

TWO-STEP TREATMENT

We recommend starting early with a check-up at the pediatric dentist. Why? So that, for
example, decays or problems with misaligned teeth can be recognized early and possible
solutions can be worked out. We work extremely transparently and you will always receive a
cost estimate, which we will discuss together so that you know exactly what to expect.

1. Contact us

Simply fill out an online form, send us an email or call us on the phone.

2. Initial meeting / preparation of documents

At the first meeting we build the important relationship between the child and the practitioner. This is how we lay the foundation for future anxiety-free dentist visits. We do a check-up, prepare the necessary documents, go through the treatment plan together and answer your questions. Now the treatment can be started.

I had been looking for a good paediatric dentist for a long time because I wanted to avoid trauma from the dentist. Yesterday I was with my 3-year-old daughter at Mrs. Pejicic's and we were totally happy! They have an extra waiting room for children, the children can also choose a movie to watch in the room, the doctor explains all the steps and at the end you get a gift.

I informed Dr. medical dent. Joos in advance about my daughter's (11) dental phobia and she was so lovingly welcomed. She paid so much time to my daughter and encouraged her so much. The tooth decay could be treated and my daughter felt very comfortable and overcame her fear.

The clinic is bright, welcoming, clean, furnished with the latest technology and very child- friendly! My 4-year-old son had to let go of his tooth. The preparation was very carefully planned and the extraction of the tooth was quick. In addition, the next day they sent SMS asking whether everything was okay.

I recommend this dental practice to everyone. The whole team is very friendly and likeable. Also very suitable for children as there is a play waiting room and children are allowed to watch cartoons on the ceiling while being treated. Thank you again and certainly see you next time.

Our four-year-old son had to have his tooth fixed and, with the best will in the world, we didn't expect him to be willing to lie down in the chair the next day. Andrea Zimmermann did a great job! Humorous, competent and precise. The whole family trusts her now and is extremely satisfied.

GET ADVICE FROM OUR EXPERTS

My name is Andrea Zimmermann, I am co-founder and co-owner of the dental practice Züri Zahni. I am responsible for the field of pediatric dentistry and, together with my team, I am well prepared for a large number of treatment options. Treatment of children is our heart’s concern! Over the past 10 years, we have performed countless treatments and mastered our craft. But it is just as important to take the little ones by the hand and give them a sense of security so that they feel comfortable at the pediatric
dentist.


Contact us for a consultation, we will be happy to answer your questions and explain what Züri Zahni offers.

Questions & answers

We recommend an initial visit to the dentist at the age of two. This way, our little patients and their parents can get to know pediatric dentistry in a calm and child-friendly environment. And at the age of two, baby teeth have normally emerged fully.

Don’t hesitate to ask any questions about your child’s diet and daily oral hygiene at home – we’re glad to advise you even as soon as the first baby tooth has erupted.

  • Try and make the day of the first visit as relaxed and strain-free as possible.
  • Make sure that your child is well-rested. Don’t promise a treat for going to the dentist – you don’t want your child to think it has to fear the visit in the first place.
  • If you’ve had bad experiences at the dentist’s, try to keep those bad feelings to yourself. Your child should be able to go to the dentist with as little bias as possible.
  • Avoid phrases like «it won’t hurt» or «you don’t need to be afraid». They might seem calming, but usually cause the opposite.
  • Just explain to your child, what happens at a visit to a dental office.

Pediatric dentists work quite differently than dentists for adults, especially on a psychological level. It’s important to take plenty of time for children, to explain procedures in a child-friendly language and prepare them playfully for the upcoming treatment.

The early childhood years are formative for a stress- and anxiety-free relationship to the pediatric dentist. When a child knows there is nothing to fear, they’ll go to their next visit gladly.

Pediatric dentists advise regular tooth brushing after the first baby tooth has emerged.

You should brush your child’s teeth once a day in the first year, twice a day in the second year and three times a day from their third year on. It’s important that you assist your child in teeth-brushing. Children don’t have the fine-motor skills to ensure a thorough oral hygiene.

Additionally, use a small size toothbrush and a age-appropriate toothpaste with reduced fluoride-concentration (500ppm). Children under six don’t always manage spitting out toothpaste after brushing their teeth and tend to swallow it instead. Your pediatric dentist can instruct your child on the right way to hold and use a toothbrush.

Maintaining healthy primary teeth until they fall out naturally is very important for the development of the permanent set of teeth. A premature loss of primary teeth can lead to substantial loss of space in the permanent set of teeth. This can lead to orthodontic treatment being the only way to repair the damage.

Your pediatric dentist helps your child develop and keep up good oral hygiene. They can spot caries early and treat it in a gentle and child-friendly way.

Your pediatric dentist usually repairs carious primary teeth with tooth-colored synthetic material. There is little difference between the treatment of primary and permanent teeth.

If a baby tooth in a crucial position has decayed substantially because of caries, your pediatric dentist may decide that a silver-colored steel crown is the best treatment. The decayed tooth can be stabilized that way.

The baby tooth and its crown will fall our normally when the new, permanent tooth comes in.

Pulling a tooth can be the only treatment if a baby tooth has decayed beyond hope, if the bone beneath has become inflamed or if the tooth has broken along its length. But neighbouring teeth could tilt towards the resulting gap and that loss of space can often be irretrievable.

That’s why your pediatric dentist will usually have a space maintainer custom-made by a dental technician to keep the neighbouring teeth from encroaching on the gap.

If a young child shows little cooperation but a treatment is necessary nontheless, your pediatric dentist may decide that sedation by nitrous oxide («laughing gas») is appropriate.

Nitrous oxide or «laughing gas» is a colorless medicinal gas with a slightly sweet smell. The child will breathe a mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen through a nasal mask during the dental treatment. This requires unobstructed nasal breathing.

Nitrous oxide is soothing, relaxing and helps minimize anxiety during treatment. Additionally, it reduces the gagging reflex and can cause a slight tingling sensation in the lower extremities as well as sensation of heaviness.

A quiet atmosphere is important during treatment, since nitrous oxide heightens the sense of hearing. When administered nitrous oxide, patients lose their sense of time so they perceive the treatment as shorter and the procedure in general as more pleasant. Often, children will recollect little of the treatment afterwards.

Unlike general anesthesia, sedation by nitrous oxide has the patient responsive and awake during the procedure. Vital reflexes like breathing, swallowing and gagging keep working normally under this sedation.

Our bodies don’t deposit or process nitrous oxide, we simply exhale the gas. After the procedure, pure oxygen is administered for a while and in a few minutes, patients return to a normal state. There is practically no chance of incidents or complications if nitrous oxide is handled correctly and responsibly.

Nitrous oxide is considered as a safe sedative. Known side effects are nausea or vomiting, which seldom occur. If your child is hypersensitive to nitrous oxide or has experienced a detrimental reaction to it, please inform your pediatric dentist.

General anesthesia may be necessary with children and adolescents who can’t be treated while awake because of their young age, anxiety or a pre-existing condition.

For these patients, we provide outpatient general anesthesia with the support of an experienced external anesthesiology-team, consisting of an anesthesiologist and a nurse.
