CONSERVATIVE DENTISTRY

The conservative is the branch of dentistry specializing in the removal of caries and subsequent reconstruction of the tooth, a procedure to restore teeth to proper form and function.

Up to 10 years ago almost all amalgam fillings were carried out in a metallic material very durable but ugly, a big disadvantage dental amalgam is to have mechanically proved unfavorable as long term can lead to fracture of the residual walls of the tooth .

In recent years we have introduced new materials called composite materials that are demonstrating significant advantages. Composites are materials that are supplied to cosmetic dentist in different colors so you can perform reconstructions completely invisible to the eye of the patient; also allow you to maintain the integrity of a lot more healthy tooth structure than amalgam, and finally thanks to their adhesive properties to prevent the risk fracture characteristic of amalgam fillings.

TOOTH DECAY

HOW TO PREVENT TOOTH DECAY?

Brush your teeth with a toothbrush at least twice a day and floss daily to remove plaque in interdental spaces and below the gumline

  • Conduct regular monitoring visits to the dentist. Prevention can prevent the onset of problems and makes sure that minor problems do not become serious
  • Do either balanced diet that limits foods high in starch and sugar. When taking these foods, try to eat the main meals rather than in the form of snacks do treat to decrease the number of times in which the teeth are exposed to acids
  • Use for oral hygiene products containing fluoride, including toothpaste.

HOW TO KNOW IF YOU HAVE A TOOTH DECAY?

Only your dentist can tell you for sure if you have a cavity. That’s because cavities develop below the tooth surface, where it is impossible to see them. When you eat foods containing carbohydrates (sugar and starch), plaque bacteria feed on themselves of these carbohydrates and produce acids that corrode the inside of the tooth. With time, the tooth enamel begins to weaken under the surface while the outer part remains intact. When erosion becomes important enough, the surface collapses, forming a cavity.

It is more likely that cavities are formed in cavities on the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, the interdental space and close to the gingival margin. The best way to locate and treat them before they become a serious problem is to make regular visits to the dentist.

HOW TO TAKE IF YOU HAVE A TOOTH DECAY?

The filling is used to restore a tooth damaged by decay back to its normal function and its original form. To remove the tooth, the dentist removes the first part of the carious tooth, and then cleans the affected area, and then fills the cavity with a filling material.

The filling is required to close spaces where they could penetrate the bacteria and prevent further develop cavities of the tooth.

If decay or a fracture has damaged a large portion of the tooth, they are recommended or a crown or a capsule. If the decay has reached the nerve may be treated with a root canal therapy, in which the damaged nerve is removed.

In the past, the materials used for the fillings were often gold and amalgam (an alloy of mercury, silver, copper, tin and sometimes zinc), but now they tend to use more aesthetic materials such as composite resins that are made to be the same color of the teeth and therefore used where you want to get a more natural result.
