Tooth decay is a disease of the tooth that needs treatment.
Various teeth problems, from simple teeth decays to severe complications, can be eliminated with corresponding odontological treatments. The treatments presume the restoration of the structure and functionality of the affected tooth with the help of modern techniques and materials, which allow us to obtain lasting and perfectly aesthetic results.
The symptoms of tooth decays are:
- Brown to black stains or dental cavities;
- Bearable pains strictly caused by cold or sweet food or drink, pains that stop once the stimulus is removed;
- Irritation of the interdental papilla (bleeding of the interdental gingival area), which could be a sign of interdental decay;
- Floss shredding could happen because of an interdental decay.
At Dental Progress you can benefit of:
- The correct tooth decays treatment, for which are being used the best materials, the highest technology and the best system of adhesion that is manufactured by 3M firm, the worldwide leader in matter of adhesive;
- Treatment for hypersensitive teeth;
- Biomaterials that, under coronary fillings, help to preserve the vitality of the tooth;
- Obturations of the radicular spaces realized with the support of a modern and secure technology;
- Photopolymerizable physiognomic obturations;
- New! – nanohybrid composite fillings with extraordinary aesthetics and high fracture resistance.
Fluoride treatments have proven to be very efficient, but they are useful only for the incipient stages of tooth decay lesions. The fluoride penetrates the dentinal tubules, fortifying the enamel and increasing its resistance towards acids found in the food and drink daily consumed.
In order to avoid the risk of fracturing the tooth surface, in case of extensive carious lesions, it is recommended to reconstruct the coronary contours with adhesive cementation of indirect tooth restorations.
- Inlay: a ceramic prosthetic device, which has the shape of a filling, but it is made outside the oral cavity and it is going to be cemented on the tooth;
- Onlay: an inlay of a bigger size which it is used when at least one of the surfaces of the tooth is missing;
- Crown: it is a rigid “cap” (porcelain-fused-to-metal, all-ceramic, Zirconia) which will be adhesive cemented on the abutment offering a bigger stability and resistance in case of fracture.
