Prevention and conservative treatment
Preventive dental care
Regular preventive examinations can prevent dental problems and save your money in the future. Preventive examination includes a comprehensive check-up of teeth and gums.
Conservative dentistry is a branch of restorative dentistry that specialises in the treatment of decayed teeth. It includes fillings of different materials – ceramic or amalgam fillings, refilling the tooth with composite material after injuries and endodontic treatment of root canals.
If the nervous system is not affected, we treat these defects with fillings (restorative dentistry).
When oral health problems such as tooth decay, discoloration or tooth crack occur, the dentist can effectively help the patient to restore the mouth to a functional and aesthetic state. The goal of the restorative dentistry is to preserve and heal the inflicted tooth as much as possible.
Endodontics/root canal treatment
Badly damaged and infected tooth can still be saved through root canal (endodontic) treatment. The procedure involves removing the infected areas, cleaning and disinfecting it, and then filling and sealing it. Root canal treatment preserves your natural tooth.
If the tooth cannot be saved it often needs to be extracted. The missing tooth can negatively influence patient´s well-being and therefore can be replaced by a dental implant (artificial tooth). The aim of dental implant is to replace the missing tooth by surgical means and supporting the artificial tooth (dental crown). Implants are mostly made of titanium.
Prosthetics (Crowns, bridges, dentures, veneers)
Dental prosthetics serve to restore defects such as missing teeth, soft or hard structures of the jaw and palate.
Dental surgery is needed when a difficult treatment is needed such as extraction wisdom tooth.
