Restorative Dentistry

Restorative dentistry

Restorative dentistry is one of the basic branches in dentistry and deals with the replacement of solid dental tissues with appropriate dental materials. Various factors can lead to loss of dental tissue, impairing both the aesthetics and the function of the anterior and lateral teeth. Therefore, the main task of restoration is to restore the tooth to an anatomomorphological form, and thus its function and aesthetics. Modern dentistry strives to preserve healthy dental tissue as much as possible, so new methods, modern materials, instruments and apparatus are being developed in this direction, which help to choose the right therapy and affect its quality and durability.

In daily clinical work, great importance is attached to the care of teeth with carious and non-carious lesions of varying degrees, the care of fractured crowns of teeth, the teeth with discolored crowns (discoloration of teeth), the care of teeth after completion of tooth root therapy and similar damage. Thanks to the clinical experience of physicians in this field, good and timely diagnosis of tooth damage and appropriate selection of restoration materials, a good result and a satisfied patient are obtained.

Restorative dentistry in the service of everyday life

Restorative dental medicine deals with the replacement of lost dental tissue. Fill therapy is probably the most common procedure done at the dental office. If the caries is detected on time, then after cleaning it and at the same time preserving the healthy dental tissue, a composite fill or “white seal” comes into its place.

Today, this type of restoration has taken the lead in repairing tooth structure damage caused by tooth decay and almost completely eliminating the use of amalgam restorations or “black fillings” that have been the standard for many years. In addition to function, the role of aesthetic dentistry is very important, so we choose the highest quality materials and take enough time to restore your teeth to their original shape and color and to make your restorations last longer.

Restorative dentistry is the cornerstone of dental medicine and refers to the treatment and repair of caries damaged teeth. Bacteria that settle on hard surfaces inside the mouth are organized into biofilm (plaque). The basis of the diet of the bacteria consists of food residues that are in the mouth in the form of sugar. During bacterial digestion, acids are produced as a by-product of sugar metabolism which leads to demineralization of the tooth surface. The progression of superficial demineralization results in cavitation, known as dental caries.

The task of restorative dentistry is to diagnose caries, remove demineralized and bacterial-infected tooth tissue within cavitation, and replenish tooth tissue that lacks adequate material.

We use the highest quality fill materials (composites) of the world’s most famous manufacturers, ensuring complete aesthetics, color and morphology.

What is a seal?

Filler or filler is a material that replaces lost hard dental tissue, and is usually lost due to caries and fracture. The fillings can be of different types, the most famous being amalgam (so-called black seal) and composite (so-called white seal). We do not make amalgam fillings in our country due to the better physico-mechanical properties of composite fillings and the potential toxicity of amalgam fillings. Sufficient tooth surface, a clean and healthy working field and good preparation are required for quality and long-lasting filling.

Do I need to replace old amalgam fillings with new ones?

Not if they are well made, functionally correct, and there is no new caries underneath. They may change for aesthetic reasons.

What is a diastema?

The distance between two adjacent teeth. It is most commonly found between the upper central incisors. It can be closed with orthodontic therapy or crowns for aesthetic reasons. Diastema is also found in young children who have milk teeth and is a normal finding for milk dentition.
