OUR MORAL CONTRACT: ZERO PAIN AND ZERO FEAR DENTAL CARE
We are particularly aware of the suffering of people who are afraid of dental care, due to the lack of structures dedicated to their specific problem. A dedicated technical platform has been designed to guarantee painless and fearless dental care, thanks to intravenous dental sedation techniques, ranging from narco-hypnosis to general anesthesia. They are carried out thanks to the skills of a team of anesthesiologists within the dental office.
Our philosophy is to constantly evolve our medical techniques so that they combine new technologies with the greatest comfort and harmony.
Semi unconscious sedation techniques, performed by an anesthesiologist, are much more powerful than simple MEOPA which belongs to the group of conscious sedations.
MEOPA is rather reserved for people with a simple apprehension of injections (achmophobia). Of course, MEOPA (equimolar mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide) is available in the office.
Intravenous sedations, practiced by trained anesthesiologists, such as narco-hypnosis, put patients into a powerfully relaxing artificial sleep, making them totally unaware of the care being given.
Intravenous dental sedation, such as the Narco-hypnosis technique, requires, as a precaution, anesthesia and resuscitation equipment in case of emergency.
The technical anesthetic platform at the practice is managed by our team of anesthesiologists – resuscitators. The anaesthetist ensures that the equipment in the practice is always in accordance with the rules of anaesthetic safety, but also adapted to patients with a delicate or difficult clinical picture.
WE DECIDED TO ANTICIPATE THE STANDARDS
All anesthesia equipment is managed by our anesthesiologist. For safety reasons, we are totally autonomous in terms of technical platforms in order to control each piece of equipment: “Multiparametric monitors” approved for operating theatres, complete respirator column, oxygen, everything is provided. A pre-anesthetic consultation is mandatory with a possible electrocardiogram, measurement of heart rate, respiratory rate, blood oxygen and blood pressure.
The practice is equipped with an oxygen cylinder that allows for permanent stabilization of oximetry and prevention of hypoxia.
Of course, all the equipment necessary for an emergency situation is organized in an “emergency cart”. It is equipped with a defibrillator, in accordance with the standards of the operating room, in clinic, which we transposed and adapted to the dental office.
For all difficult situations, the anesthesiologist is always at your side. He has all the necessary equipment to practice his job as a resuscitator as in a hospital.
THE TECHNICAL PLATFORM AND EQUIPMENT
The equipment of a dental office is nowadays of high digital technology, as in most medical specialties.
Computers, 3D imaging scanners, digital impressions taken with the 3D intraoral camera, have replaced the old equipment and the traditional hand carving of the prosthetist.
Medical ethics require us to constantly renew our techniques and protocols. And, as it is illusory to practice, at a high level, all these new professions at the same time, we have organized around us a team of doctors, dentists and prosthetists specialists, all possessing the latest generation equipment.
The latest generation of digital X-ray equipment allows for a considerable reduction in ionizing radiation, about three-quarters of that of the old silver techniques. For example, the 3D Cone Beam scanners used by radiologists allow for the radiological modeling of the teeth in space in 3 D (three dimensions).
In the dental office, 2D (two-dimensional) digital sensors allow image acquisition directly on the computer.
A whole staff of doctors (internist, radiologist, cardiologist) surround Dr. Jérôme Weinman with their skills, in order to help him treat all patients, even the most medically difficult.
In the dental office, the digital workflow involves a 3D (three-dimensional) tooth impression camera that sends the digital impression file directly via the internet to the prosthetic laboratory for CAD/CAM machining.
Dental restorations such as inlays, crowns or bridges are made in the dental laboratories in a machining center, using CAD-CAM (Computer Aided Design and Manufacturing).
HYGIENE AND ASEPSIS FOR YOUR SAFETY IN THE DENTAL OFFICE
The rules of asepsis, hygiene and safety are all the same for all practices in France. Each country of the European Union and Switzerland has its own rules. All of them are common sense in terms of sterilization, aseptic and hygiene standards.
These rules are enacted, in Switzerland, by the Federal rules but also by the Cantonal Physician. It goes without saying that all these rules are perfectly respected for the comfort of both patients and members of the practice.
Since the year 2020, the Covid pandemic has hit the world: safety standards have increased.
The dental office has set up a video appointment system on the internet platforms Doctolib and/or Doctena and/or Onedoc to meet the recommendations of the cantonal medicine.
Currently, only Doctolib is accessible from almost anywhere in the world in the world and allows a “screen sharing” of computer or cell phones to “put” on your screens your X-rays of your teeth or the downloaded documents, in order to explain them to you and comment them by the doctors in live.
These video appointments allow patients to contact physicians for an initial consultation about their clinical case. These consultations are paid for and the fees are paid directly from the contact platform (Doctolib for example). They can be used to prescribe exploratory examinations (radiology, biochemistry) and to decide on the relevance of an appointment in person.
The video appointment has the advantage of not being time consuming since you don’t have to travel. The video appointment is very easy to access no matter where you live.
The video appointment allows patients who are afraid of the dentist to avoid travelling and feel safe at home.
And of course, it avoids all risks of contact with a person who would be infected by Covid-19, in accordance with health recommendations.
