Your own teeth are above rubies
Conservative dentistry is a key field of the dentistry. Its task is to keep your teeth alive and healthy. It deals not only with the correction of dental defects, especially cavities, using fillings or root canal treatment, but also with prevention in the form of teeth sealing for children and supporting overall oral hygiene. It is the best option if you can maintain your own teeth for as long as you live.
Segments of Conservative dentistry:
Tooth decay always appears unexpectedly and at the beginning it doesn't hurt. The only way to get rid of it is to remove it with the entire damaged part. Initially, it affects only tooth enamel, but later it can grow to the dentine, then to the dental pulp, where it leads to inflammation of the pulp and of the entire root system of the tooth.
This is a reason why is regular prevention so important for our health. Preventing the tooth decay from further development by using advanced filling materials plays an important role in conservative dentistry. At Schill Dental Clinic, we use a variety of technologies and materials. Our doctors will give you advise which option is the most suitable for you.
Endodontics is a root canal treatment. It is used when the tooth decay has penetrated the dental pulp reaching the dental nerve and is damaged its structure. In this case, the tooth does not have a natural defence ability, so it dies under the long-term influence of the toxins. It becomes fragile, more prone to breaking.
Therefore, it is important to treat the damaged tooth as soon as possible at a dentist. Failing to treat it even at the late stage, the bacteria begin to spread to the surrounding area of the tooth through the dead root canal and damage the tissue. This can result in a tooth loss. In addition, toxins get into the whole body through the blood stream and can negatively affect the patient's general health.
Endodontic treatment in Schill Dental Clinic
The quality and precision of work is just as important to us as using the state-of-the-art technology and materials. At Schill Dental Clinic, we use RVG device throughout the endodontic treatment. By using it the entire treatment process is scanned and transmitted to the screen. Thus, the dentist gains more control over the procedure. Also the device for 3D filling of the root canal is an innovation improving performance efficiency and thus the overall result of the work.
Periodontitis starts as gingivitis with its symptoms like gum bleeding, swollen gums and halitosis. Then the inflammation goes deeper, to the root attachment and to the adjacent tissue. The final stage is loss of the tooth. If you have a suspicion that this might be your problem, read more about periodontitis here.
An important preventive intervention in restorative dentistry is the tooth sealing. The treatment is mainly done on children's teeth. It is a basic and economically advantageous dental cavities protection.
Tooth sealing helps prevent young tooth from the decay. However, it is necessary to divide healthy and damaged teeth - healthy teeth can be sealed, the damaged ones need to be treated. Teeth cleaning and regular dental hygiene are as important for patients which have undergone this procedure as well as for for those who do not have teeth sealed.
