Your specialist in oral surgery in Mainz

Tooth extraction by oral surgery

Oral surgery is considered part of the general field of dentistry, which dentists can develop further as a specialised field. In addition to modern dentistry at his surgery in Mainz, dentist Holger Vermöhlen is a trained specialist dentist and oral surgeon who is committed to this particular field of his profession. As a patient of the RHEIN WEISS dental surgery, you’re in the best of hands.

Your dentist in the old town of Mainz and his team of dental assistants are specialists in the field of oral surgery. One important aspect of oral surgery is the surgical removal of teeth. It makes no sense to keep badly damaged teeth in your mouth. They often involve the risk of inflammation, cyst formation or abscesses. Like all surgical interventions, removing teeth also involves certain risks that should be considered beforehand. In addition to the general risks, such as postoperative bleeding and wound healing problems, there are also specific risks associated with removing teeth, which require special attention at the planning stage. At our surgery in Mainz, we’re happy to take care of professional dental prostheses for our patients who have teeth extracted as part of our implantology service – so you can continue to smile with no worries.

You can have confidence in the many years of expertise of your dentist and his team in the field of oral surgical dentistry and invite you to make an appointment for individual treatment. We cordially welcome you to our surgery in Mainz.

Wisdom teeth

The removal of wisdom teeth is one of the standard oral surgery procedures at our surgery in Mainz, which the dentist has carried out skilfully and effectively thanks to his many years of practical experience. For many people, the cause of the problem is that the jaw is too small for their wisdom teeth. If necessary, the procedure can also be performed using nitrous oxide, sedation or general anaesthetic. 

In the case of problematical wisdom teeth that have a positional relationship with the mandible nerves, we can carry out three-dimensional volume tomography (DVT) in order to be properly prepared for the procedure at our dental surgery.


In most cases there is no room for wisdom teeth and the following problems may occur:

  • If the teeth are only partially in the oral cavity and are still covered by the gums, infections may develop underneath. Germs and food debris may accumulate in these pockets and sometimes trigger threatening inflammation.
  • Cleaning deep and narrow pockets around wisdom teeth is very difficult. This may lead to caries or periodontal disease and damage the adjacent teeth.
  • The pressure of inclined wisdom teeth can damage the adjacent teeth and their roots.
  • In the area around displaced wisdom teeth, cysts can form in the jawbone.
  • Displaced wisdom teeth become a weak point in the jaw, which means you could break your jaw in the event of a fall.

From a purely psychological perspective and considering the healing time involved, your dentist from Mainz recommends removing all four wisdom teeth in one go.

On average, the dentist needs about 15 minutes to remove each tooth.

“Badly damaged teeth in your mouth often involve the risk of inflammation, cyst formation or abscesses.”

Apicoectomy (root end surgery)

Despite modern technology, the latest findings in dentistry and carefully performed procedures, it is sometimes impossible to reach and eliminate inflammation completely especially in the root end.

In order to save the tooth and prevent the inflammation from spreading, the root end has to be removed surgically.

In root canal treatment, the tip of the root is exposed and removed in a surgical procedure under local anaesthetic.

With root end surgery, the tooth can often be saved despite pronounced inflammation. The inflamed lower third of the root along with the inflamed tissue is removed, disinfected and the treated area hermetically resealed with a special root filling.

The preparation for the filling for the root canal treatment is carried out using ultrasound instruments with the aid of optical magnifiers.


Depending on the number of root ends of a tooth to be treated, root end surgery takes between 15 and around 45 minutes in the hands of an experienced dentist who specialises in oral surgery.

The procedure can be repeated if the expected result improves the symptoms or problems. However, it should always be considered whether the tooth is still worth preserving and whether it would be better to remove it and replace it with a denture. Professional implants replace your tooth without any visual peculiarities. With the aid of aesthetic dentistry and implantology, we can help you have beautiful teeth after your root end surgery.

The inflammation at the root tip would continue to grow and the surrounding bone would be destroyed. Your dental surgery in Mainz strongly recommends that you don’t ignore the symptoms and to see your dentist for treatment and as part of regular prophylaxis.

“A dental prosthesis should not only work well but also look good.”

– Your dentist from Mainz, Holger Vermöhlen

Cyst treatment

In dentistry, a cyst is designated a cavity lined with skin or mucous membrane that is filled with fluid. A cyst can grow at different speeds and displace or weaken the surrounding tissue. Therefore, every change in a cyst should be medically examined and treated as required. In the mouth and jaw area, a whole number of changes in cysts of very different origins can occur. This is why the dentist has to make the diagnosis for each patient individually.

Diagnostics and therapy

Cysts generally grow unnoticed and do not cause any complaints. The diagnosis is often made incidentally based on an X-ray. Only in the case of very large cysts do they become noticeable as growing, painless swellings in the oral cavity or face.

With cysts in the bony jaw area, we perform a precise X-ray analysis. In specific cases, such as if the position of the cyst is close to important anatomical structures and nerves, it makes sense to prepare a three-dimensional image in advance to ensure the treatment is safe.

In almost all cases, we remove our patients’ cysts very gently and completely without any problems occurring subsequently. As a surgical practice in Mainz, we specialise in this in our focus on oral surgery.


Jaw cysts occur fairly frequently, usually in middle age and especially in men. Statistics show the upper jaw is affected more often. The most common form is the radicular cyst, which can develop as a result of an inflammation of the dental nerve. The radicular cyst, for example, is one of the main reasons why root end surgery has to be carried out. Small cysts of the salivary glands often occur in the soft tissue area such as the tongue and lips and appear as round and glassy swellings.

The dentist removes cysts in a surgical procedure under local anaesthetic.

Pre-prosthetic and aesthetic oral surgery

At our surgery in Mainz, medical expertise and high aesthetic standards go hand in hand, because we know that both these factors are crucial for healthy teeth and contribute to a significant increase in quality of life. As a dentist who specialises in oral surgery, Holger Vermöhlen will advise you not only on oral surgery issues of a medical nature but will also provide you with support when it comes to aesthetic dentistry and surgery.

In oral surgery, we work in a minimally invasive manner with the latest technical equipment and precisely operated instruments, so we can carry out procedures gently for your dental health and aesthetic wound healing that leaves scars that are virtually invisible.

Our dental and oral surgery practice in Mainz specialises in procedures whose purpose is to improve the expansion of hard and soft tissue in the mouth. In the context of our aesthetic oral surgery at our dental practice in Mainz, we improve the patient’s situation in terms of bone and soft tissue in order to create an ideal starting point for high-quality dental care and what we refer to as red-white aesthetics.

Exposed tooth necks can be covered again in an aesthetically appealing manner by moving or relocating soft tissue. We can carefully expose teeth that are covered excessively with gums (“gummy smile”) at our dental surgery in Mainz.
