Swiss Biohealth

In the SWISS BIOHEALTH CLINIC, we gently remove ischemic osteonecroses according to the SWISS BIOHEALTH CONCEPT.

What is osteonecrosis of the jaw?

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 of maxillary osteitis in the SWISS BIOHEALTH CLINIC

The treatment of osteonecrosis of the jaw is part of the second step of dental rehabilitation and the SWISS BIOHEALTH ALL IN ONE CONCEPT.
To diagnose osteonecrosis, we first take a 3D X-ray (DVT). From four weeks before the procedure, you should take the BOOST nutritional supplement.
The osteonecroses are then removed quadrant by quadrant in ALL-IN-ONE surgery. This takes about 30 minutes per region.

After the procedure, we recommend taking the BOOST supplement again for four weeks. This promotes the healing process and stabilizes your immune system.

Frequently asked questions about the diagnosis of maxillostritis

How can maxillary osteitis be diagnosed?

With a lot of experience, maxillary osteitis/NICO can already be guessed at on the orthopantomogram (panoramic X-ray = 2D). However, a more reliable diagnosis can be obtained from a 3D image (DVT). If the dentist opens the gum above the NICO, he can often recognize it by the yellow to brown discoloration of the bone. This discoloration comes from cholesterol (LDL) storage. In addition, when the bone is opened, the blood shines through the fat eyes floating on it.

Are NICO's associated with breast cancer?

The inflammatory mediators RANTES and FGF-2 are significantly elevated in osteomyelitis of the jaw. These two mediators are also found in the tissues of breast cancer and other serious diseases such as ALS, MS or rheumatoid arthritis. NICO's are thus considered to be a major cause of autoimmune diseases through the production of RANTES and FGF-2.
