Conservative dentistry includes diagnostics with caries treatment and anatomical reconstruction of tooth structures. It is a basic branch of modern dentistry, allowing for maintaining a healthy smile and prophylaxis of dental pulp diseases.
Preserving natural, healthy and strong teeth of the patients is the priority of Scandinavian Clinic. State-of-the-art equipment, qualified doctors, friendly atmosphere and computer-controlled systems for local anaesthesia guarantee fast, stress-free and effective treatment.
at Scandinavian Clinic:
• dental inspection,
• local or conduction anaesthesia,
• computer-controlled anaesthesia,
• light-curing filling,
• reconstruction of the crown of the tooth with a fibreglass pin.
The course of the procedure:
Conservative treatment is preceded by a thorough diagnostics adjusted to individual needs of the patient and the assessment of the condition of the teeth. After cleaning the carious lesion, the dentist places a tight filling, checks if it does not interfere with the patient’s occlusion, then polishes and smoothens it.
Owing to the use of modern light-curing fillings, the colour, shape and gloss of the restored tooth is as close to natural as possible. All this makes the filling nearly invisible in the oral cavity.
Duration of the procedure:
Dental inspection takes about 15 minutes. The time of placing the filling depends on the size of the defect, but in most cases does not exceed 60 minutes.
Recommendations after the procedure:
The teeth can be brushed normally in a few hours after the filling has been placed. For brushing, a toothpaste with a high content of fluoride, which protects the enamel should be used, as well as dental floss and mouthwash. During the appointment, Scandinavian Clinic specialists will instruct you on how to take care of your teeth properly.
The task of an anaesthetic is to block the sensation of pain. The needle used to administer the anaesthetic is very thin, and the prick at precise application is barely noticeable. Patients who are afraid of pain during injection may at Scandinavian Clinic additionally obtain surface anaesthesia. Before the anaesthetic is applied, a locally administered gel is used in order to minimise the sensation of pain.
The choice of filling is at the discretion of the doctor who will assess which one is best for a specific tooth and cavity.
