Thanks to the fast development of dental science beautiful smile and healthy teeth are available to everyone in a fast and painless manner. Below you can find some explanations for frequently appearing dentistry terms:

Orthodontia

Orthodontia is mostly associated with paediatric patients as  the treatment of malocclusion is easier when the body is still growing. However, orthodontia has lots to offer also to adults who are not satisfied with the alignment of their teeth. Orthodontic procedures (eg. braces) are also used as a part of implantation and prosthetic treatments.

Dental fillings

Dental caries or cavities is a breakdown of teeth due to microorganisms and external factors. Treatment of cavities requires removal of decayed dental tissue and placement of dental filling. Today, mainly light-activated resins or dental composites are used. The procedure is minimally invasive and enables to preserve maximum amount of patient’s own dental tissue thanks to the special method used. Wide variety of dental composites available enables to restore the exact shape and colour of the tooth, and usage of light-activated resins makes the procedure fast and convenient for the patient.

Root canal treatment

Root canal treatment may be necessary in cases of strong and acute tooth pain, temperature sensitivity, chronic inflammation of root canal or trauma. Root canal treatment requires one or several visits to the dentist. During the procedure diseased and dead pulp tissue is removed from the tooth, root canals are then cleaned, shaped and finally sealed. Thanks to the new technologies root canal treatment has become faster and more precise. The tooth receiving root canal treatment must be restored in a very stable way, for example using dental composite or crowns. Dental crowns are custom-made in a special laboratory: the tooth is filed and filled, if necessary, and an impression is taken from the tooth, which is sent to the lab. The result is a permanent crown which is fastened to its position with a special adhesive.

Dental implant treatment

Removal of a tooth may be indicated in certain situations. As a rule, the procedure is minimally traumatic and painless. To replace the missing teeth the dentist might recommend different solutions, for example removable partial dentures, fixed prosthetic devices (such as crowns and bridges) and dental implants. Each solution has its pros and cons. As of today, dental implant treatment is considered one of the best methods for replacing missing teeth. Dental implant is an artificial tooth root which is placed into the jawbone. After the healing process a custom-made dental crown is made in a laboratory and it is fixed on the dental implant.

Prosthetic treatments and dental crowns

Dental crown is used for restoring the structure of a tooth when it is broken or decayed. Our clinics offer all-ceramic dental crowns which are identical to natural teeth. In cases when several consecutive teeth are missing the dentist might recomment other options, for example removable partial dentures, which can be made for partially missing teeth, and also complete denture protheses. Modern materials and methods result in a beautiful, natural smile.

Air polishing

Air polishing or Air-Flow® procedure is becoming more popular day by day. In just few minutes surface stains, plaque and other soft deposits are removed from the teeth, making them look cleaner and whiter. In order to achieve a better effect, air polishing is combined with plaque removal procedure (done by either ultrasound or manual instruments). The procedure is perfect for smokers, coffee and tea lovers, and everybody who want to keep their teeth and gums in a good health.

Tooth whitening

In addition to tooth restoration procedures, we also offer different esthetic dentistry services, including tooth whitening. After the short procedure the teeth are several shader whiter. The result lasts for a few months.

Dental veneers

During the placement of dental veneers a thin layer of material is placed over a tooth. Dental veneers enable to change the shape and colour of the teeth completely. Cooperation of patient, dentist and dental technician is crucial for the optimal esthetic result. Patient’s individuality and personal preferences are taken into account when preparing the veneers. Depending on the procedure the teeth are not filed at all or a minimal preparation is made. Before the veneers are made the patient can see different possible shapes and make suggestions according to them, or even try how temporary veneers feel. This results in a complete satisfaction of the patient.
