Some information about our treatments
This field of dentistry refers to surgical and non-surgical procedures which deal with the removal of teeth that have been destroyed by caries or fractures and of which the restoration and maintenance is deemed impossible. Moreover, it includes tooth extractions before the fitting of dental braces in liaison with the orthodontic therapist. Oral surgery also involves the removal of semi-impacted or totally impacted teeth (usually third molars), which is necessary when there is inflammation (pericoronitis) or caries. In addition, third molars are removed as a precaution to prevent second molars from getting decayed. The extraction process is carried out painlessly under local anaesthesia. The necessary instructions regarding after care are administered with the aim of a smooth and pain-free post-operative period.
Periodontology is the field of Dentistry that deals with the diseases of the periodontal tissues, i.e. the tissues that surround the tooth. These tissues are the gums (gingiva) and the bone (alveolar tissue). Their health is essential for good functionality. Gingivitis and periodontitis are the main inflammatory diseases of the periodontal tissues. Gingivitis is characterised by red, swollen and bleeding gums while periodontitis additionally by bone loss. Gingivitis is completely reversible with the proper treatment (scaling), commonly known as teeth cleaning. If left untreated, it can develop into periodontitis. Periodontitis is characterised by resorption of the supporting bone. It varies in severity and needs immediate treatment. The aim is to prevent further bone loss and to preserve the teeth. Our main concern is the appropriate education and guidance of patients to maintain good oral hygiene in order to avoid the above-mentioned diseases.
Dental implants are the most novel treatment approach to partial or complete edentulism, which is the lack of one or more or all teeth. A dental implant is an appliance similar in shape and size to the root of a tooth. It is made of titanium, which is a highly biocompatible material and capable of integrating with...
Endodontics regards the diagnosis and treatment of teeth in cases where extensive destruction (caries or fracture) exposes their pulp. The pulp is the inner soft tissue of the tooth, which includes its nerve. A dental injury affecting the pulp of the tooth is almost always accompanied by pain, which can be acute in many occasions. If the tooth remains untreated the condition becomes chronic and a symptomatic or asymptomatic abscess is formed around the root of the infected tooth.
Bleaching is the least invasive cosmetic dental procedure that can brighten natural teeth, by altering their shade into a lighter one. After taking dental impressions, individualised transparent splints are made, which the patient uses at home to apply the whitening gel for 10-14 days. The results are expected to last for 9-12 months, after which the application can be repeated, if necessary.
Prosthodontics is the branch of Dentistry that deals with the replacement of missing teeth. It also includes restoration of teeth, in cases where there is a big lack of hard tissues. It is divided into fixed prosthodontics (crowns, bridges) and removable (partial or complete dentures) There is a great variety of materials available for the fabrication of dental prostheses, which enables us to select the appropriate one for each individual patient, depending on aesthetic and financial factors.
