The restoration of lost dental hard tissue remains a main task of a dentist until today.
In recent years treatment methods for tooth preservation have improved significantly. While one had to rely on filling materials like amalgam, cements or simple plastics in the past, we nowadays use modern high-performance ceramics and composites besides the proven gold alloy. Teeth can not only be reconstructed that way but malocclusions can be corrected or possible aesthetic problem areas can easily be eliminated.
In case of smaller defects tooth-coloured plastic material, the so-called composite, is used preferably. Bigger lesions in visible areas are nowadays mostly treated with ceramic material and a sustainable solution can also be achieved by using gold inlays.
In terms of their durability and stabilisation of tooth walls in case of bigger defects, inlays made of ceramics or gold remain superior to any other filling materials until today. This usually makes them a cheaper and especially gentle filling alternative on the long run. Ceramic inlays win over other methods particularly by their brilliant finish that our dental master laboratory applies after precise preparatory work in our practice.
Endodontics deal with the interior of the tooth trying to detect and treat “inner” diseases. That is diseases that affect the nerve tissue of the tooth (pulp) as well as the removal of effects that they (the diseases) have on bones, periodontal ligament, gum and the immune system. The goal of the treatment is to keep such an affected tooth in the mouth permanently. If the tooth’s nerve is irreversibly inflamed or already dead i.e.by carious defects, endodontic treatment can save such a tooth. The root canal system is the part of the tooth that encloses the tooth’s nerve. It consists of several small ramifications that all contain soft tissue and need to be cleaned during treatment and be filled afterwards.
It is important to find all the parts of the canal and to free them from infected tissue and bacteria. In order to do that the root canal system is being shaped to ISO-norm sizes and enlarged in diameter with delicate and flexible instruments to enable a three dimensional cleaning and disinfection by using appropriate irrigation fluids. In case of a re-infection and infestation of surrounding structures they can be cured by repeated treatment (revision).
The main goal is always to treat, disinfect and finally seal the entire root canal system to prevent bacteria from entering it. A root canal treatment requires a lot of time, experience, care and expertise. By applying new methods and instruments the expected success rate for a treatment can be raised. We offer you a selected and ideally coordinated system consisting of means for optical magnification, a mechanical treatment system of highly flexible nickel-titanium-files that ensure, besides a minimized risk of fracture, a very high bacterial sealing because of their ISO-norm for files and filling pencils. The use of a technique that combines liquid and solid phases maximizes the filling of all side channels of the root system. By applying a highly sensitive and extremely low level radiation system with digital technology a sufficient control and documentation of the treatment’s success are ensured.
As all teeth vary in terms of their canal system’s expression and shape, the anatomic knowhow and modern techniques as well as years of experience and constant trainings are the basis for long-term success.
