Dentistry practice Osmička has been in operation at the Mazurská Policlinic since 2014 when it opened as an independent practice of a single dentist with a nurse. Since then, we have grown to include four dental practices in different specialisms including general dentistry, orthodontics, periodontology and dental hygiene. Our aim is to ensure that more than 7,000 of our clients receive comprehensive dental care that reflects a thorough knowledge of latest therapeutic approaches and findings of dental care research.
That is why we put great emphasis on making sure that all our specialists continue to expand and update their knowledge by attending seminars, workshops, conferences etc., and maintain their ability to provide excellent medical services on daily basis.
In our surgeries, we use state-of-the-art equipment, from modern dental chairs and delivery systems, top quality endodontics equipment to fully digital diagnostic x-ray machines for RVG and OPG scanning, adopting ALARA principles. The use of modern dressing, restorative and other dental materials is a matter of course.
Visiting our practice
When visiting our practice for the first time, clients undergo an initial examination that includes the establishing of previous case history and x-ray imaging of the oral cavity to produce both panoramic and intraoral images. With all necessary equipment on-site, it is possible to determine a care plan during the initial visit. The plan, including associated financial estimates, is discussed with the client and the best way forward is agreed upon. Our practice has contracts with all health insurers whose contributions are thus available to our clients.
Subsequent appointments are made in agreement with the client and in accordance with their time constraints. In order to further accommodate our clients, our practices open early in the morning and do not close until late afternoon.
By always setting aside sufficient time for each client we avoid slipping behind for subsequent clients, something that can otherwise easily happen.
As we keep abreast of the latest advances in intraoral anaesthetics all treatments provided by our practices are painless.

OUR FIELDS OF EXPERTISE
Restorative dentistry is mainly concerned with treating caries. We use the best and least invasive materials and instruments to diagnose (digital RVG and OPG imaging) and treat caries (caries detector) and to fill in cavities (photo-composite resin fillings, modern glass ionomer, alternatively non-gamma-2 amalgam). Endodontic treatments are used in cases of extensive damage to teeth due to caries or injury where the focus is placed mainly on treating root canals of the affected teeth. Endodontic treatments rely on state-of-the-art equipment for canal cleaning using APEX locator with subsequent filling with heated gutta-percha latex. This approach ensures a considerably improved prognosis.
All potentially painful interventions are always preceded by the application of a suitable local anaesthetic ensuring painless treatment.
Dental prostheses come as fixed prostheses or removable dentures. Fixed prostheses replace a part or a whole tooth, or several teeth in a dental arch simultaneously. Fixed partial prostheses are known as inlays or onlays, depending on the extent of treatment. A crown and bridge are replacements for a complete tooth or several teeth in a dental arch respectively. Our practices offer a wide selection of prosthetics, including fully ceramic prostheses in a range of finishes and resilience grades.
Our practices also offer basic surgical interventions of oral medicine. More complex cases are referred to third-party specialist partners.
TREATMENT WITH REMOVABLE APPLIANCES
Removable orthodontic appliances are braces that can be removed from the oral cavity. They comprise a resin body and wire clips that keep the appliance in place. Removable braces also contain an active screw-like element that can be turned in accordance with the orthodontist’s instruction to gradually expand the brace and thus position teeth as desired.
The use of removable braces is recommended especially in children at the time when deciduous teeth are replaced with permanent ones. During this period, the orthodontic treatment takes advantage of the naturally dynamic development of the juvenile organism that takes place in several distinct stages. It needs to be remembered that removable appliances have limited possibilities when it comes to positioning teeth within the jaw and as such are not suitable for all types of malocclusions.
TREATMENT WITH FIXED APPLIANCES
Fixed orthodontic appliances are firmly attached to teeth using brackets connected by a wire that position the teeth as desired. The brackets can be either metallic or ceramic (white).
Treatment with fixed appliances is quicker, more efficient and more reliable. Patients are required to adhere to strict oral hygiene and take extra care when eating: they are for example advised to avoid hard food and cut their food into smaller pieces.
The treatment completes with the application of removable retainers that are worn at night only.
INITIAL CASE HISTORY
The first step is to ascertain the case history and current condition, including establishing gingival and periodontal indexes (PBI+CPI-TN).
DENTAL CALCULUS REMOVAL
We offer the removal of dental plaque and calculus using state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment with subsequent fine cleaning using manual tools.
Following the removal of dental deposits, we carefully remove any residual stains using a modern air-flow device.
We can also perform fluoride treatment that improves the resistance of teeth to caries.
Daily prevention is the single most important factor in oral health. That is why we offer training in the correct use of the toothbrush and other suitable interdental aids.
Periodontics is a dentistry specialism concerned with the treating of periodontal disease (periodontitis) and improving the condition of soft tissues within the oral cavity. As such, it contributes to overall oral health.
Periodontics treats inflammation and diseases of the gingiva (gums), including periodontitis.
Other interventions include treatments of receding gums and excessive tooth exposure, gingival grafting to replace missing gingiva (periodontal plastic surgery), incisions of excessive or limiting lip frenula, increasing the depth of the vestibule, adjusting of oral surfaces for dental prostheses to improve fit and stability of removable dentures, etc. The treatments rely on a range of surgical and microsurgical procedures.
Periodontitis or periodontal disease is a bacterially induced inflammation of tissues supporting teeth (gums at the cementoenamel junction, ligaments and bone around the root). It is often preceded by gingivitis, an inflammation of the gums.
SYMPTOMS AND IMPLICATIONS
Symptoms include bleeding gums and in later phases also the formation of pockets around teeth, with associated exposure of the cementoenamel junction. Another frequent symptom is bad breath. The disease gradually causes changes in the position and stability of teeth as connective tissues and underlying bone recede.
The damage caused by periodontitis is mostly irreversible. The dangers of the disease are compounded by its relatively painless symptoms (neither gum bleeding nor gum recession are particularly painful). However, periodontitis remains one of the most serious diseases of the oral cavity.
Treatment in the early stages involves mainly dental hygiene: the removal of plaque and calculus from the crowns and cementoenamel junctions of teeth.
In advanced stages, rigorous dental hygiene no longer suffices on its own. It is therefore supplemented with calculus removal above and below the gum line using special curettes, and rinsing of pockets. The treatment also includes locally effective medication.
In the case of minimal-invasion and difficult-to-treat conditions, a DNA analysis of the active pathogens can be called upon in order to propose a targetter intervention.
In specific cases, treatment can also be supplemented with surgical interventions.
It is clear from the above that the most important aspect of a successful treatment of periodontal disease is timely detection and early commencement of treatment. With an early intervention, treatment may involve no more than professional dental hygiene in our practice, combined with improved dental care by the patient.
