The main purpose of the conservation is to treat the teeth with cavity (decay) or if needed, to substitute the damaged teeth. If the decay reaches the pulp than it also involves its curing.
The filling can be done by light polymerisation lamps at the dental clinic. In this case the cavity caused by tooth decay is filled after cleaning and lightened by polymerisation lamp. Due to the light the applied layers harden. This method can restore the colour and form of the tooth naturally.
The fillings can also be done in a dental laboratory after the dentist has made an imprint about the tooth and the cavity. The inlays can be made of plastic, porcelain or gold. The dental prosthetist forms the inlay which is then glued to the prepared surface by the dentist. The missing part can be replaced by the dentist perfectly this way. This is also the best way to replace old amalgam fillings.
Of course this is a longer procedure than an ordinary filling. During the first appointment your dentist prepares the tooth by removing any tooth decay. Once the tooth is prepared, an impression is made of the tooth’s structure and then sent to a dental laboratory. Since it will take a few weeks to create the permanent inlay, your dentist will place a temporary dental filling to preserve the tooth.
During the second dental visit, the temporary filling is removed and the dental inlay is cemented onto the tooth.
Fissure sealants are a common preventative treatment. The chance of the forming of tooth decay can be reduced by fissure sealing, which is the filling of the fissures in the grinder teeth by liquid plastic.The most important way of preventing tooth decay is regular dental survey but fissure sealing can help you prevent a lot of tooth problems. It is also often performed on children’s teeth after their permanent grinding teeth came through.
Root Canal Treatment
Root canal treatment is a procedure of treating infection at the centre of a tooth once it had been badly damaged by decay. The dead or infected root will be removed by way of surgery. When the surgery is completed the root canal will be cleaned and sanitized and finally refilled. This type of treatment will stop the causes of pain, avoid diseases and infections. As a result of it the tooth will live longer and won’t have to removed.
