The sealing or the fulfillment of the teeth is done after removing teeth damaged by caries, in order to restore normal function and anatomical shape of the teeth. The seal closes the space in the tooth and prevents the recurrence of the infection. There is no unified type of seal that is best for all patients. What is best for you should be judged by the dentist, depending on the defect of the tooth itself. Each matrix used for sealing the teeth is different and has an indication.
●Composite (white) fillings
These seals are similar to your teeth and placed in a visible region in order to maintain their natural appearance.
●Only composite (aesthetic) seals
Nowadays, when a top aesthetics is required, a single matrix that meets these criteria is the nano hybrid composite material that allows the creation of a restoration identical to the natural tooth. These nano-based matrices have the opalescence and transparency of the natural tooth therefore being the number one choice of our patients.
If the damage has affected most of the tooth mass, it is recommended to make an Inlay or Onlay manufactured in technique and perfectly fulfill the tooth defect.
This type of fillings is mostly used in milk dentition. Today, the matrices used by the youngest are fully adapted to their age and polymerized in a short time.
●Amalgam (black) seals
As the effects of our work are long lasting, we use the highest quality materials.
Our team is particularly attentive to the consultative examinations, where together with the patient we negotiate about the potential problems and how to remove them. We pay attention to the most important things about the hygiene of the teeth or give them instructions, and by that we teach them how to brush their teeth. We recommend consultative reviews at least once every two months so that all changes can be monitored and all problems resolved in a timely manner.
Treatment of teeth – Endodontic treatment
Endodontic treatment or the treatment of teeth is actually a treatment that is known for people as “nerve extraction”. Endodontic therapy is actually a treatment of the interior of the tooth. The first associations of this term in the patient are in pain and discomfort, but modern endodontic treatment is most often performed completely painless with the use of anesthesia. Each tooth is composed of hard external structures such as enamel, dentin and cement of the tooth, and soft tissue such as the pulp located in the inner cavity of the tooth. In the tooth pulp there are blood, lymphatic vessels, connective tissue …
The tooth nerve plays an important role in the growth and development of teeth, but when the tooth once sprouts and completes its development, the function of the nerve becomes sensory, that is, the ability of the tooth reacts to thermal changes such as hot and cold. When the tooth caries progress so as to damage the pulp chamber and thus the nerve itself, the tooth becomes sensitive to the sensations from the external environment. Then, in order to cure the tooth itself and thus to eliminate and pain in the patient, it is necessary to perform endodontic treatment.
How is endodontic treatment done?
The treatment involves mechanical cleaning and flushing of bacteria, decomposition of organic compounds and toxins that have remained during the “collapse” of the dental nerve. All of the above parameters can lead to an inflammatory reaction to the surrounding tissue, pain, swelling and other conditions that follow every inflammation. After cleaning the root canals and their rinsing, they are followed by their filling with special pastes to allow the space inside the tooth remain hermetically sealed. This reduces the possibility of repeated infection and inhabitation of bacteria in the tooth. This prevents the occurrence of an inflammatory reaction with all its consequences. In our practice we have special apparatus for precisely performing this type of treatment, such as the apex locator and the endo engine, to successfully determine the length of the root canal, and can also to remove the infection from the most accessible places. In the case of a periapical lesion at the tip of the tooth root there are 2 modes of therapy
Conservative – processing channels using various pastes
Surgical – when using the surgical treatment, called apicotomy, the upper third of the tooth root
where the infection is actually located.
