The dental decay (caries) cannot be stopped unless through proper treatment, which consists of removing the decayed substance and obturating the resulted cavity with special materials that restore the tooth in terms of aesthetics and functionality. For an increased comfort of patient, such labor will be performed under local anesthesia.
If left untreated, the dental decay (caries) will result in inflammation of the dental nerve with typical painful crises. In such case, besides the restoration of the tooth, the endodontic treatment will also be necessary.
Our philosophy is to have a more conservative attitude in approaching the treatment of dental decay (caries), trying to keep as much as possible of the healthy tooth substance. The first step in such process is done by early diagnosis of incipient lesions.
An important role is played by the means of diagnosis, through which we can detect newly formed lesions of very small dimensions, hardly noticeable to the naked eye. Another mandatory exam is the radiographies which accurately capture the interdental incipient decays (caries), difficult to be detected by clinical examination.
In the past there were used dental materials which, besides not providing a satisfactory aesthetics, also required the creation of mechanical retentions in the tooth, which involved additionally removing the healthy dental tissue for the retention of obturation. Unfortunately, the biological sacrifice was important.
The appearance of adhesive techniques (equipment) of obturation was a real revolution in dentistry. It is about the composite materials, known as esthetic fillings (tooth-colored), which establish a chemical bond with the hard dental substance by using special adhesives. This property allows for creating minimally invasive dental preparations, consisting of strict removal of decayed tooth substance using miniature mills. The means of magnification (magnifying glass, microscope) significantly increase the quality of labor.
Because the technique of adhesive obturation presumes the existence of a dry working area, the doctor will use dental dam, a latex insulating foil, fixed on teeth by using special clips. This minimizes the possibility of contamination with saliva. This allows obtaining a perfect adhesion between the tooth and filling material, increasing the long-term success rate of dental restoration and, hence, the life of the tooth on arcade. But the success results from competence, experience, precision and perfection.
