Conservative dentistry

Conservative dentistry

Conservative dentistry includes removal of tartar and plaque, tooth decay, denture restoration and “inlay/onlay” upgrades.

If there are cavities or the tooth decay occurs, fillings are used to repair the damage. Ceramic (embossed) seals are healthier and aesthetically more acceptable than amalgam (black, metal) fittings. “Inlay”, or “onlay” upgrades are made of ceramics according to the impression of dental cavities, and they are used to repair the damage on the upper and lateral surface of the crown.

Regular visits to dental prosthesis and dental plaque scrubs reduce the possibility of developing periodontal diseases.

Why do tartar and plaque have to be removed regularly?

The regular removal of tartar (also called calculus) and plaque is necessary, both for the health and the beauty of the tooth. If they are not regularly removed, they become fertile ground for the development of microorganisms that lead to damaging the enamel, cavities, and other periodontal diseases.

What are dental cavities and what causes them?

Dental cavities (caries) are caused by the action of acids on the enamel surface. The acid is produced when sugars (mainly sucrose) from the food or drinks react with bacteria present in the dental biofilm (plaque) on the tooth surface. Caries can eventually spread to the dental pulp and root canal, which leads to the destruction of the tooth if not treated on time.
