Swiss Biohealth

In the Swiss Biohealth Clinic, we gently remove ischemic osteonecrosis according to the Swiss Biohealth Concept.

What does osteonecrosis of the jaw mean? Ischemic osteonecrosis (IO), also referred to as NICO (“neuralgia-inducing cavitational osteonecrosis”), is defined as inflammation of the jaw, which may even involve the complete destruction of the bone. Cases of NICO frequently occur after a tooth has been extracted, due to injuries or following radiation, such as during cancer treatment. However, the inflammation may also occur for no apparent reason. Osteonecrosis is a problem areaand may lead to severe physical and mental complaints if not treated. The treatment of NICO generally consists of extracting the necrotic and adjacent bone along with prior and post treatment to stabilize the immune system.

Ischemic osteonecrosis and wisdom teeth

Ischemic osteonecrosis frequently occurs in connection with wisdom teeth. Wisdom teeth are a common problem, particularly in Western industrial countries. Due to a shorter breastfeeding time, the jaw does not grow large enough. Wisdom teeth then do not have enough space to erupt and therefore frequently need to be removed in a surgical procedure between the ages of 12 and 20. This operation is usually accompanied by incomplete cleaning of the wound, an orally administered antibiotic, which weakens the immune system, and major swelling. These conditions may prevent the bone defect from fully healing. For this reason, 90% of all wisdom teeth operations result in ischemic osteonecrosis, or NICO.

NICO removal according to the Swiss Biohealth Concept

At present, there is not yet any non-invasive or partially invasive treatment available that can fully cure ischemic osteonecrosis. Only minimally invasive, atraumatic yet radical surgical removal of the NICO according to the Swiss Biohealth Concept is able to bring complete healing to the area. The associated symptoms and diseases, such as nerve pain, facial pain, rheumatism or Lyme disease, can be reduced or even completely eliminated using our concept.

Treatment procedure at the Swiss Biohealth Clinic

The removal of ischemic osteonecrosis is part of the second step of tooth removal and the Swiss Biohealth ALL-IN-ONE CONCEPT. To diagnose the osteonecrosis, we first prepare a three-dimensional X-ray image (DVT). You should take Basic Immune for four weeks before the surgical intervention. Then the osteonecrosis is removed quadrant by quadrant during the ALL-IN-ONE operation, which lasts approx. 30 minutes for each area.

Following the surgical intervention, we recommend that you take Basic Immune for a period of 4 weeks. This will stimulate the healing process and stabilize the immune system.
