Dental Check-Up
We recommend that you have dental check-ups once in every six months, so you can avoid development of major tooth decays! Upon the expiration of that time, we give a notice to our patients if requested.
Dental Sealants
When is it time to consider applying dental/fissure sealants? Due to pits and fissures on their chewing surfaces, your teeth become susceptible to dental caries. When applying dental sealants, a plastic material is placed in such pits and fissures to separate them from the oral cavity, i.e. to prevent dental caries and preserve your healthy teeth.
Calculus Removal
Calculus buildup is not only unaesthetic, but may also trigger serious periodontal diseases.
If caluculus is not removed in due time, gums shall recede, wear away with time, and this may ultimately result in loss of healthy teeth. Calculus removal in our practice is done with a piezoelectric scaling instrument, and is followed by several kinds of "polishing".
Tooth Whitening
The colour of our teeth is genetically coded.
Where tooth-paste cannot help any more, tooth whitening with your dentist’s help at home or in the dental surgery may be a good solution. It is worthwhile waiting till the end of the procedure with dental prostheses, or replacement of fillings for aesthetic purposes. This will allow us to match the colour to your whitened teeth.
We recommend taking care of decayed (carious) teeth as soon as possible, in order to avoid root canal therapy, and also to restore chewing function and aesthetics. We recommend that you have dental check-ups twice a year to support that. We are using the most up-to-date materials in our surgery, and this means we have not used amalgam for decades. For larger cavities, it may become justified to prepare an inlay, an onlay, or a crown.
Fixed prosthodontic restorations
In the case of missing teeth, or even just one lost tooth, restoration becomes necessary in order to save the perfect condition of the rest of your teeth, to restore chewing ability and also for aesthetic reasons.
To support the intended crowns and/or bridges, we can use ground (prepared) teeth, pins in dentin, or implants. Before doing so, we take an x-ray image to check the appropriate status of the teeth to be used.
Inlays, onlays, crowns
For very large cavities, when a simple filling cannot help, we may prepare an inlay, an onlay, or perhaps a single crown.
Porcelain bridges
Such crowns and bridges are made of nickel-free porcelain-fused-to-metal (Creation). After making a dental impression, it takes some 7-10 days to prepare any of them, and in order to complete the whole procedure, you have to visit the surgery 3 times altogether, including a fitting test. After grinding the teeth, in order to reduce their sensitivity to cold, and also for aesthetic reasons, we prepare a temporary crown or bridge on the spot. The lifespan of crowns and bridges is 7-10 years, and normally they need to be replaced when that time elapses.
Zirconia bridges
The aesthetic advantage of Zirconia bridges is owing to the fact that such bridges and crowns do not contain any metal, thus the transmission of light in and around such prostheses is almost the same as in and around the original teeth. Types of such prostheses are: in-lays, on-lays, ceramic veneers, all-ceramic dental crowns and crowns/bridges with a Zirconium frame.
Removable dental prostheses
In lack of the necessary teeth required for making a permanent dental prosthesis (crown or bridge), you will need a removable partial denture (plastic, metal plate, with clasps or hidden retainer), which leaves the remaining teeth intact, and follows an appropriate preparation.
Removable complete dentures (for an edentulous mouth)
This kind of prosthesis becomes necessary once you have unfortunately lost all your teeth, but naturally, if implants can be applied, this condition may be changed.
