CONSERVATIVE DENTISTRY

Fillings

A tooth with decay is functionally and aesthetically restored by using fillings. Our practice prioritises composite fillings (white fillings) over amalgam fillings.

We use state-of-the-art ceramic fillings, combined with high-density plastic fillings, so that we can achieve a high degree of abrasion resistance, durability and aesthetically perfect results.

 

The type of filling we use will depend on the extent and location of tooth damage. For example, in the case of very large fillings for chipped teeth, we recommend ceramic fillings or (partial) crowns. These are produced in our practice in a single session using a CEREC 3D system. Alternatively, when a filling is required for the aesthetic anterior region, it is produced conventionally in the dental laboratory.

Root canals

Dental pulp consists of nerves and blood vessels inside the tooth and its function is to nourish the tooth. The ‘dental nerve’ can die for a variety of reasons, but extensive tooth decay or dental injury are frequently the main causes. The space that previously contained nerve tissue is finely filed and disinfected to remove dead root pulp and to kill bacteria. During the first treatment, medication is applied to the canals. The objective of the second session is to fill the nerve canals with a root-filling material.

Following root filling, it is important that the area is tightly sealed around the surface. For optimum results, we use crowns, since they are the sturdiest option. This is particularly relevant, because a root-filled tooth is more susceptible to fracture, similar to a dead tree that is more likely to break than a living one.

Amalgam replacement

In our group practice, amalgam fillings are avoided for physical and biological reasons. We use only materials that meet the highest standards in durability, aesthetics and safety, in other words, that have been scientifically proven to be biocompatible. Following a comprehensive examination and consultation with the patient, we devise a restorative programme, which eliminates the use of amalgam.
