The tooth with a quality composite fill, with proper maintenance of oral hygiene, can last for tens of years.
Pain is the main reason for reporting a dentist. When the tooth begins to hurt, it is a sign that caries in most cases have already pulsed the pulp (nerve) and that the tooth must be treated. Pulp represents the interior, i.e. The core of the tooth is made up of blood vessels, nerves and numerous cells.
Treatment of the tooth is done by removing the pulp, processing channels and then recharging, which usually requires several visits to the dentist. In the first visit, a dentist will open your tooth, get to the pulp and place a cure. The next time it is necessary to determine the length of the channel. To measure the length of the channel, we use apex locator, an instrument that determines the working length in a non-invasive and reliable way. For the same reason it is also necessary to do a small X-ray of the tooth that is being treated. The processing of the root canal can be done by cutting-edge manual and machine tools. Channels need to be processed to reduce the number of bacteria that are located in the root canal wall and to provide the channels with a proper leafy shape. Treatment is done with abundant irrigation (flushing) with bactericidal agents. If there is a gangrene, we have wide spectrum medicines that work soothing tooth tissue and have a reparatory potential. Channels are filled with these medicines and there are a number of days to show their maximum effect. After finishing treatment and medication, the channels are definitely filled with materials that hermetically bulk and thus prevent further penetration of microorganisms.
What is caries?
Caries is one of the most prevalent diseases of today. There is almost no man and child without at least one fill. Carey is created by the fact that owing to the low pH value in the mouth there is demineralization, i.e. softening of solid dental tissues. The bacteria continue to break down the demineralized bowel and the cavity (cavity) develops.
Remediation is the removal of caries tissue and the setting of a cavity in the cavity. Caries are removed mechanically by diamond and carbide borers. When the caries tissue of the teeth is completely removed, a filling is made. In our office at your disposal are fillets of the latest generation of composite materials (white fillings). Composites made with nanotechnology have excellent aesthetic properties and the ability to leak light, which is especially important when filling in the front teeth. For fillings on the side teeth, we use reinforced composites that successfully resist high pressure during the function (chewing food). These materials require a minimal removal of the dental substance due to the micromechanical relationship that they have with the dental tissue, as opposed to amalgam fillings where the part of a healthy tooth is removed. Thus, only a part of the tooth affected by the caries is removed and thus the toothpaste is saved. They have excellent marginal sealing, which means that bacterial penetration is prevented and the possibility of secondary caries is reduced to a minimum. They are suitable for molding, so it is easy to mold the filling by imitating the morphology of a natural tooth.
