There is a charge for this service. It comprises an initial examination (digital volume topography/DVT, meridian anamnesis, interference analysis and diagnosis) and discussion of the results. These results will be used to prepare a detailed diagnosis and treatment plan, including a schedule of costs.
This is scheduled for the day before surgery. You should plan for at least 1.5 hours

The patient information booklet contains information on the BASIC IMMUNE PROTOCOL which you can obtain as a prepared mixture from the BIO CLINIC. Alternatively, any doctor can prescribe each of the individual medications. You must start taking these supplements four weeks prior to your operation to ensure that your immune system receives the ideal blend of nutrients and is prepared for the operation. The booklet also explains how to prepare during the two weeks before the operation in terms of nutrition and lifestyle. We strongly recommend that you travel to Kreuzlingen the day before the operation and that you attend an infusion appointment to ensure ideal vitamin supply. You should not work on the day before the operation in order to break your usual work/stress rhythm. The final pages of the booklet contain information on the steps to take after the operation and what to do in the event of complications or if further treatment is required.
You will receive a local infiltration anaesthesia with the anaesthetic Ultracain Forte (active ingredient: articaine). We used this anaesthetic for a long time and has always achieved an adequate depth of anaesthesia without a single instance of adverse side effects.
We do not use block anaesthesia as this can lead to an insufficient blood supply to the jaw bone and can stimulate the emergence of ischaemic osteonecrosis (NICO).
No. You will receive all medication from us here at the clinic. If you do require medication at a later date, we will provide a signed prescription for after-care medication in the booklet, so that you can obtain the medication anywhere and at any time.
We will give you a package with the following content directly after the procedure: purified and oxygen-enriched SWISS BIOHEALTH WATER, one glass of stock, vegetable soup and a smoothie (all of them organic products), a toothbrush and toothpaste, Traumeel ointment, an arnica cloth, Ibuprofen pain medication and the Vivo Base system that you can use to shield yourself from the EMF radiation in your hotel. The package also contains instructions on ‘How to behave after the operation’.
We will administer the following infusions, selected to suit your specific post-operative condition:
- vitamin C infusion
- pain infusion
- mitochondrial infusion
- energy infusion
Anaesthetics ALWAYS test negative, no matter which one is used. So there is no point whatsoever in conducting prior tests. Anaesthetics are a necessary evil to enable patient treatment. But the anaesthetics are metabolised or excreted very quickly. In 26 years of treatment, we have never experienced complications with the anaesthetic we use (Ultracain Forte = active ingredient: articaine).
You will need to use the Hilotherm cooling mask directly after the operation, which we will also give you to take back to the hotel. When used consistently, this will prevent any swelling. On the day of the operation you will also be treated with various ointments designed to aid lymphatic drainage, and you will also undergo some magnetic field therapy. In addition, we will give you a package containing your choice of organic stock and/or puréed vegetables and/or smoothies for the first day after the operation, as well as purified oxygenated Swiss water. We will lend you the Vivo Base Home device for your time in the hotel, which completely and noticeably eliminates exposure to EMF (electromagnetic fields).
If you wish to continue taking organic stock, puréed vegetables or smoothies after the first 24 hours following the operation, you can buy additional portions from us at any time. The day after your operation, you will receive a post-operative osteopathic manual-therapeutic treatment designed to eliminate any possible tension in your spine and jaw joint. You will also receive a post-operative vitamin infusion. Additional medication may be provided where necessary, including pain-relief infusions or additional IV antibiotics to protect against infection, depending on your specific case. On the second day after the operation you will receive treatment at our medical department in addition to the post-operative infusion. This treatment may include lymphatic drainage and detoxification methods such as cupping, acupuncture or neural therapy. You will of course have the support of our entire team during your further medical treatment by our biological practitioner, along with osteopathic treatment in our osteopathy department and additional infusions.
The operation relieves the body of stress, which results in you feeling better on the first day afterwards. The healing process then uses up a lot of energy, so in many cases our patients say they feel slightly worse for wear on the following days. The body also starts to detoxify. You will feel much better, the more strictly you adhere to our protocol.
You must not go for walks or exert yourself physically in the first three days. You should relax. You may listen to music, read books or meditate. You should not read or watch any news or practice yoga.
We also advise you to speak as little as possible to avoid irritating the wound. The sutures may also burst, or the wound area may experience more pronounced swelling.
We recommend that you do not rinse your mouth for five days after your operation, and after that only with water. Please refrain from using mouthwash solutions or other chemical preparations.
You can start eating again as soon as the anaesthetic has worn off. But do not eat any hard foods, as the cement requires 24 hours to harden completely.
Long-term temporary prosthetics fitted to an immediate implant must not be exposed to any strain for six weeks, so you should only eat soft food during this period.
Long-term temporary prosthetics are polymer crowns that are manufactured in the clinic on the same day, firmly cemented into place, are stable and look almost entirely genuine. They remain in the mouth for the period it takes the implant wounds to heal; they can be replaced with the permanent, fully ceramic crowns after 3 to 24 months.
Implants wounds have a healing process that takes at least three to six months. You will receive individual information after your operation.
Take painkillers (Ibuprofen 400 mg, 1–2 tablets every six to eight hours, up to a maximum of 6 tablets in 24 hours). If the pain does not subside, please contact us or an emergency dentist if you are unable to reach us.
Take a freshly washed cotton cloth (do not use paper tissues!), tie a knot in it, and press it onto your wound for 20 minutes (compression bandage). If the bleeding does not subside, please contact us or an emergency dentist if you are unable to reach us.
Traces of blood in your saliva are not a sign of profuse bleeding, but can be treated in the same way. Please do not rinse your mouth in any way, as this will merely provoke more bleeding.
As a rule of thumb, you should not return home until the fifth day after any surgical procedure. You must not fly for around two weeks after procedures involving the construction of bone in the maxillary sinus. In general, you should also avoid strenuous sporting activities, intense sunlight and saunas for two weeks after the procedure.
You will experience an improvement in your symptoms after roughly one to two weeks. However, each person reacts differently to an operation. You may still notice a slight cramp or tightness in the operation region after around six weeks; this will subside and is a result of the soft tissue healing. Gently massaging the outside of your jaw will alleviate these symptoms.
Administration / accounting
- We need you to send us a 2-D panorama x-ray image.
- You must also complete the medical history form in full. This is available from reception or as a download from the website.
- We also require your 25-OH vitamin D3 and your LDL cholesterol levels. Your immune system is only strong enough and your body able to produce healthy bones if your levels are above 70 ng/ml D3. An LDL level above 1.4 g/l LDL indicates a higher susceptibility to inflammation; your LDL level must therefore be < 1.4 g/l (< 1.0 g/l is better) before the operation.

Your deposit confirms your reservation for an appointment.
We work according to the ALL IN ONE concept. This means that you are given a longer appointment – up to a whole day – in which an entire team of specialists is booked to work on your procedures, including preparation and follow-up. Your deposit is also a guarantee for us.
Naturally, the deposit will be deducted from the invoice for your treatment.
No! The grand total may deviate from the cost estimate by up to 20% in the event of unforeseeable difficulties and situations. Any additional services you would like to book, but were not included in the cost estimate, may also increase the grand total.
We kindly request that you transfer the amount of the deposit invoice to the specified bank account. You will be asked to settle the remaining balance by credit card immediately after your treatment in our clinic. Naturally, we also accept cash payment in Swiss francs.
Our patients come to us from all over the world , meaning that we have to do our planning on a long term basis. We therefore need to be informed at least four weeks in advance if you are unable to make the appointment.
Patients are attracted to the BIO CLINIC from all over the world due to the immense demand for biological dentistry, the option for immediate fitting of ceramic implants. Treatments following the ALL IN ONE concept take a lot of time and demand maximum concentration and attentiveness by the whole team; the current waiting periods are therefore between 2 and 3 months.
But we do keep one or two appointments free each month to accommodate urgent cases. Kindly contact us if you feel that you qualify for one of these appointments. A 100 percent deposit must be settled before an urgent appointment can be confirmed.
The price includes standard follow-up treatment for the initial two to three days; it is stated in the cost estimate. We will discuss with you any additional medical therapies and follow-up treatments that you need or would like and will send you advance notice of the costs.
Operation / treatment
The answer to this question is a resounding YES for the amalgam removal protocol (AMX) used at the BIO CLINIC. We use our proprietary sixfold special protection protocol to remove all amalgam fillings so that our patients experience no discomfort. It is therefore particularly beneficial if all fillings are extracted at the same time, as this procedure eases the burden on the immune system and helps to initiate the detoxification process. The tiresome discussions on how many fillings can be removed in one session is entirely misguided: either the protective system is perfect and all amalgam fillings can be removed at once, or the protective system is insufficient, in which case NOT A SINGLE amalgam filling should be removed. The protocol developed by Dr Volz has not led to a single deterioration in the patient’s condition since 1991, not even when treating patients with severe illnesses, e.g. those suffering from ALS. The AMX conforms to the specifications defined by Dr Dietrich Klinghardt, Dr Joachim Mutter and Dr Rainer Wander.
We exclusively perform the sinus lift procedure (to build bone structure in the maxillary sinus) using autologous material from the patient. The patented SINUS IMPLANTS developed by Dr Volz allow the operator to obtain bone replacement material used in the lift procedure exclusively from the PRF membranes in the patient’s blood, as well as from bone splinters acquired with the SAFESCRAPER. The SWISS BIOHEALTH CLINIC never implants animal material or material from other human donors. We do use synthetic material (tricalcium phosphate) in very rare cases.
An immediate implant is one that is fitted immediately in the same position after a diseased tooth has been extracted.
