Therapy covers prevention and treatment of affections in the oral cavity, focusing on treating tooth decays and other injuries caused by accidents, fractures, muscular dystrophies or other external actions that put pressure on teeth.
This dentistry field helps with restoring your smile and offers your teeth a good health and a natural look.
The most usual ondontological procedures are direct or indirect obturations, single or multiple fillings.
Physiognomical obturations (fillings) reconstruct teeth affected by decay, restoring both the function and the tooth aspect, by applying materials of the same color as the teeth. The most aesthetic alternatives to direct obturations which also have a longer lifespan, are indirect obturations (incrustations) made of composite or porcelain and are manufactured in the lab, using a dental mold of the patient.
The dentist can also recommend dental sealing to a child or teenager, depending on the therapeutic and medical situation.
Dental sealing is actually a thin composite coating which covers the surface of the teeth in order to prevent tooth decay. Usually, sealing is performed on the back teeth, on molars and premolars of children with ages between 6 and 14. This procedure is highly recommended by specialists because, even if the children brush their teeth correctly and use dental floss regularly, they will not be able to properly clean the teeth placed in the back of the mouth. This is a vulnerable area where teeth can be protected by dental sealing.
It is recommended to perform dental sealing on permanent molars and premolars as soon as they protrude. This way, the seal can protect the teeth from an early stage and will allow them to grow and turn into a beautiful smile in adulthood.
