For healthy teeth
ooth-preserving measures stand for healthy teeth, for a better quality of life. Our goal is to preserve your own tooth with its natural root. We believe that your own tooth is the better implant.
Tooth-preserving measures are all measures that are preventive or conservative in order to maintain the function and shape of the teeth. Acids, abrasion, plaque, caries and / or periodontitis are the cause of diseases or damage to the tooth structure.
Keeping teeth healthy through prevention
Prevention is, of course, the best way to keep teeth healthy in form and function. You yourself can make the biggest contribution to this. Regular and thorough oral hygiene and a healthy diet are the most important pillars for maintaining dental health.
Further measures for early detection are preventive examinations in the dental practice. Preventive examinations can prevent diseases or detect them at an early stage. Damage or disease caused by caries or gum disease can be rehabilitated, reduced or stopped.
When we remove tartar or clean your teeth, we specifically clean the areas that are difficult or impossible for you to reach at home. This is perfect dental care in teamwork. You yourself can optimally maintain the preventive effect through subsequent intensive daily dental cleaning.
Tooth preservation through restoration
A tooth restoration is always necessary when defects in the crown area of the tooth need to be repaired. This is the only way to prevent the progression of tooth damage and to reconstruct the function of the tooth.
Defects in the crown area can be caused by:
- Caries (in the fissures, interdental spaces, tooth neck, …)
- Periodontitis (gum disease)
- Erosions (loss of enamel due to acids, medication, …)
- Tooth wear (due to pressing, grinding, …)
- Lost dental restorations (fillings, inlays, posts and crowns)
In restorative tooth preservation, there are many possibilities in modern dentistry to restore the defects in the dental crown area in form and function. Our goal is always minimally invasive dental treatment to leave the healthy tooth substance in place. This way, the healthy tooth substance can continue to be used to stabilise the tooth.
Tooth preservation through minimally invasive therapy – kinetic cavity preparation
Kinetic preparation is an alternative to caries removal that is gentle on the tooth substance. The extraordinary advantage of kinetic preparation is the removal of caries even through the smallest of openings. This means that no unnecessary substance has to be sacrificed, which would have stood in the way of the “rumbling drill”.
Kinetic cavity preparation can often replace the drill and thus save tooth substance. It is used for small to medium caries. This treatment method is carried out with a powder jet device. In terms of the way it works, it is a sandblasting method. The device is operated with compressed air. The aluminium oxide particles accelerated with this, together with compressed air and water, remove only the soft tooth defects at the carious site through the impact.
The advantage of kinetic preparation is not only the removal of the carious areas, which is basically gentle on the tooth substance. Patients also find this method very pleasant.
With kinetic preparation in combination with the flow materials, we can now repair and fill defects without damaging the substance, where this was not possible before. For example, at the margins of fillings, inlays or crowns, as well as in tooth regions that are difficult to access due to the tooth anatomy.
With state-of-the-art dental technology and current dental knowledge, we enable our patients to receive high-quality aesthetic dental treatment and care in our Dental Clinic.
Tooth preservation is always in the foreground with us!
