Conservative dentistry aims to restore caries-damaged teeth. When the caries is advanced, treatment entails endodontics and after that – tooth restoration. Therefore, we can divide conservative dentistry into reconstructive dentistry and endodontics.
CONSERVATIVE DENTISTRY AND CARIES TREATMENT
What does caries treatment mean? Caries is the most common tooth disease today. It is the most common cause of inflammation to the pulp and tooth root.
The seriousness of the caries-caused damages will dictate the dimensions of the dental intervention.
Reconstructive dentistry aims to remove and treat caries.
It entails the removal of caries and the placement of composite fillings. It also includes reconstructions, inlays, onlays, and/or tooth fissure (cracks) sealing.
The destroyed part of the tooth can be restored with different, contemporary filling materials. The standards of modern dentistry in caries-caused damage sanitation are composite fillings. They possess all technical, biological, and aesthetic criteria. With the correct oral care, your restored teeth will last for a long time.
The extensive degree of tooth damage dictates the use of other materials and solutions. Some of them are ceramic inlays or onlays.
WHY IS CONSERVATIVE DENTISTRY IMPORTANT?
Conservative dentistry aims to create healthy, beautiful, and functional teeth. Foundation of conservative dentistry are diagnostics, prevention, and treatment of caries.
Caries is caused by the bacteria already inside in the afore-stated plaque which contains both food and saliva. When the dental plaque is not cleaned from the teeth, the plaque bacteria are turning the sugar from the food into acids. These can dissolve the enamel minerals. And by damaging this primary, necessary protection, cavities will appear.
When treating a tooth, the most important thing is to completely remove caries in order to prevent further tooth decay. If we find that caries is superficial, the tooth is repaired by a filling only. Still, sometimes the caries is deep, and the pulp, tooth nerve is affected. In these cases, it is necessary to prepare the tooth endodontically. We clean the tooth root canals, fill them and then place a dental filling on top.
