The substitution of a lost tooth with
an implant nowadays is the ideal method for every adult, except for some patients with
some other serious illness. Implant is being use in case the tooth was completely lost,
including its root. The implant is made of a titanium material which is placed instead of
the lost root of the tooth into the bone. It is a fully biocompatible substitution, which
is possible to be used for fixation of a ceramic crown.
This allows a substitution of one or more teeth under the condition that there is enough
quantity of good quality bone. But, even in case there is not enough quantity of the bone,
the situation can be solved. The bone can be substituted with a bone from another part of
the mouth, or by using other materials which are fully compatible with the human body.
Dental hygiene is an independent
field, which has a huge contribution to the modern dental practice. Due to the dental
hygiene the dentist is able to fully give attention to its expertise. The removal of the
dental stone is done by a special dental hygienist. This would remove the irritation of
the gingiva. In addition, our dental hygienist will teach you how to take care of your
teeth at home.
Do you think that the professional examination by the dental hygienist is not needed and
is a waste of time? Mistake! Even the teeth that are cleaned regularly, need professional
care once in a while. At the end of the day, we use the teeth daily and they deserve to be
treated once in six months. In addition, in most of the cases only little is needed -
removal of the pigmentation caused by drinking coffee, tea or smoking and you will leave
satisfied and with a nice smile.
The goal is to preserve the diseased
tooth by caries or injury. Filling is used in case of a lighter damage, which is not
affecting the nerve system of the tooth. The type of the filling is chosen judging all of
the specifics and considering the wishes of the patient.
If the damage is bigger and it affects the nerve system of the tooth, the root channels in
which the damaged nerve is placed need to be cured. All of the interventions are done
painless using local anesthesia.
Each tooth is specific and the degree of the disease requires different type of cure. Some
times there are more possibilities and based on the consultation with the doctor you can
choose the type of the cure (amalgam or esthetic white filling). If the tooth is seriously
damaged, in most cases cure of the root channels is needed.
The prothetic dentistry substitutes
the lost hard tooth tissues or whole tooth or teeth groups. The products of the prothetic
Esthetic ceramics veneers

teeth, caused by the development of damaged hard tooth tissues or can even correct small

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth. A bridge is
made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap – these two anchoring
teeth are called abutment teeth – and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth
are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain or a combination of these
materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.
A provision that connects the root of the tooth with a prothetic crown.
Solves a loss of a group or all of the

Plaque and dental stone are most often
the cause of periodontal diseases. When plaque develops, bacteria irritate the gums and
cause them to swell. In the beginning, the disease is called gingivitis and only affects
the gums. In more advanced phases, the disease is known as periodontitis. The bacteria go
under the gum line, eventually attacking the tissues and bone around the teeth. This can
lead to tooth loss.
The alarming factors that can warn you are easily bleeding gums, bad breath or taste. The
solution is simple. The removal of the plaque and the dental stone can stop the whole
process and prevent the loss of the teeth. ´
Endodontics is a treatment of the root channels.
This method is used for more complicated forms of caries when the disease has spread to
the nerve system of the tooth. The damaged nerve is displaced and the remaining area is
cleaned and filled with a root filling material.
The built of a trust between the doctor and the
child is possible and recomended from the first year of the childs life, when the first
teeth apear. The care for the child teeth is as important as the teeth with bigger age.
The only difference is the approach. The doctor works with the child to release the fear
by carefully explaining the procedure. This is often done in the form of a game. The first
visit of the child to the dentist is an introductory visit. If there are no acute reasons
for intervention, only a check up is being done. The child is given an opportunity to get
used to the dentist. The parents are informed how to take care of the child teeth and
about the results of the check up.
Caries can appear on the deciduous teeth. Preventive check ups are recommended once in six
months, which would enable detection of caries in the beginning stage. In addition, the
position on the teeth is controlled at every preventive check up.
