For dental and oral diseases, CLINIC | DPC places a special emphasis on preventive measures to avoid the development of dental and oral diseases. Therefore, we recommend that each patient visits the dentist twice a year for a prophylactic treatment so that your teeth and oral health can be assessed and, if necessary, appropriate preventive measures or early treatment can be performed in good time.
Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases, resulting from the acidity of dental plaque and microbial interactions that cause the hard tissue of the tooth to become demineralised and cavities to form. Following the timely detection of decay, it is essential that the healthy dental hard tissue is cleaned and sealed.
Replacement of old, defective seals
Often, our patients ask us why we need to change an old filling, although it still in the tooth. The answer is very simple – the older generation of seals have a high shrinkage factor, so eventually microgaps that are invisible to the eye will appear between tooth and the surface of the seal. The bacteria that accumulate in the acidic medium caused by food residue can easily penetrate these microgaps, and the teeth will begin to “decay“ (resulting in hard tooth tissue destruction – or so-called secondary caries), while the wall of the tooth becomes thinner and one day may crack or break off. Modern seals have a minimal shrinkage factor, so the quality of the filling is improves and there is no risk of secondary caries risk. In addition, they are very aesthetically pleasing, durable and solid.
Aesthetic fillings for front and back teeth
An aesthetic restoration is a great way of beautifying your teeth, while the sealing also provides a conservative treatment method. This dental restoration method allows the maximum preservation of the tooth tissue, while restoring the anatomical shape of the natural tooth, with a healthy tooth colour, transparency and lustre. Aesthetic fillings are recommended for teeth damaged by caries, as well as teeth that have changed colour, worn irregularly, a diastema (gap between teeth), improper closing, or for the rebuilding of teeth after a trauma. During the restoration of a tooth that has been heavily damaged, the chewing surface relief is restored depending on the functionality and aesthetics, which is particularly important for the chewing efficiency, keeping a good bite, and protecting the teeth from natural wear. Restorations are carried out with the highest quality natural materials to provide a healthy colour and transparency.
Replacement of a cracked tooth
Using modern filling materials that have been selected for their aesthetic appearance, strength and robustness, it is possible to restore a chipped tooth so that it becomes completely unnoticed, and the restoration will last for years. Your treatment physician will recommend the most suitable method for a tooth replacement.
Treatment of tooth sensitivity
Patients frequently complain of teeth sensitivity, with discomfort when eating, drinking cold drinks or just breathing in through the mouth. Once the cause of the sensitivity is found, it is easy to choose the right treatment – it may be simply rinsing with a formula containing fluoride, the application of a fluoride varnish or gel, a topless filling of the tooth neck or other methods.
