ENDODONTICS and RESTORATIVE DENTISTRY
Endodontics is a field of dentistry which studies and treats the root canals of teeth. Our practice offers a mechanical endodontic procedure, which is much quicker and more comfortable than the classic manual root canal method, and also gives better results.
PROPHYLAXIS (DENTAL CLEANING)
ULTRASONIC REMOVAL OF CALCULUS
Calculus (i.e. tartar) is hardened plaque that has been left on the tooth for some time and is impossible to remove with a toothbrush, and therefore requires ultrasonic scaling. Significant plaque and tartar build-ups can lead to cavities and tooth decay and can irritate the gums, causing an inflammation (gingivitis). After the removal of tartar additional sandblasting and polishing is advised, in order to smooth the surfaces of teeth.
Drinking coffee, smoking and certain foods can cause extrinsic discolouration of teeth, i.e. teeth stains. AIR FLOW(r) sandblasting is a method of teeth stain removal by using a mix of water, compressed air and fine powder particles of sodium bicarbonate. The procedure includes sandblasting, teeth polishing and a fluoride treatment and takes some 30 minutes.
Healthy teeth surfaces that are more prone to decay due to deep grooves (called pits and fissures) may be protected by non-invasive application of sealants to such grooves.
FIXED AND REMOVABLE PROSTHETICS
Missing teeth may be replaced by dental bridges or removable dentures, or by a combination of the two. Depending on the patient's needs, we design crowns, bridges, combination works and veneers made from different materials (metal-based ceramics, ceramics, zirconium).
Replacement of a missing tooth or teeth is also possible with dental implants. Dental implants are surgically implanted into the bone of the jaw and are used to support a dental prosthesis (such as a crown, bridge, denture).
Teeth whitening is performed in a single visit and takes some 45 minutes. The treatment, involving the use of a hydrogen peroxide teeth whitening gel, is comfortable and completely pain-free.
Injectable filler (injectable cosmetic filler, injectable facial filler) is a soft tissue filler injected into the skin to help fill in facial wrinkles, restoring a smoother appearance. Most of these wrinkle fillers are temporary because they are eventually absorbed by the body. Some people may need more than one injection to achieve the wrinkle-smoothing effect. The effect lasts for about six months or longer.
Veneers are prosthetic restorations placed over the front surface of a tooth in order to correct its colour, shape or size. We make composite veneers and ceramic (porcelain) veneers.
Bonding is the application of a teeth-coloured composite resin, which has proven itself as a successful method to repair a decayed, chipped, cracked or discoloured tooth. The procedure is pain-free and most frequently involves no drilling.
ORTHODONTICS – SIX MONTH SMILES
SIX MONTH SMILES® is a fixed orthodontic braces system that enables quick, safe and effective teeth straightening. The key components of the treatment are the use of unique, clear brackets and white wire and a primary focus of effectively moving the teeth that show when you smile. Six Month Smiles braces are more comfortable than regular braces because they use lower forces over a shorter period of time, making the risk of root damage (resorption) and other complications even lower. The treatment is usually complete within 6 months, but the exact treatment time may vary from 4 to 9 months, depending on the severity of the problem. Once the treatment is finished and the braces are removed, retainers are fitted to keep your new smile in line. A fixed retainer is a thin wire fitted to the back of your teeth, while the removable one is an appliance to be worn only at night. The bottom age limit for the Six Month Smile braces is 16.
We use the Biolase dental laser.
