Our Commitment to Dental Excellence

In a conservative dentistry clinic, a variety of dental treatments and procedures are applied with the goal of preserving natural teeth and addressing dental issues in the least invasive manner possible. Here are common treatments and procedures that you can expect to find in a conservative dentistry clinic:

1.     Dental Cleanings: Regular dental cleanings (prophylaxis) are fundamental to preventive care. Dental hygienists perform cleanings to remove plaque, tartar, and stains from teeth, helping prevent tooth decay and gum disease.

2.     Dental Examinations: Comprehensive dental examinations are conducted to assess the overall oral health, detect dental issues early, and formulate treatment plans.

3.     Dental Fillings: When a tooth has a cavity (tooth decay), dental fillings are used to restore the damaged tooth structure. Common filling materials include tooth-colored composite resin or traditional amalgam.

4.     Inlays and Onlays: In cases where a dental filling is insufficient, inlays and onlays are used to restore larger areas of tooth damage. They are custom-made restorations typically made of porcelain or composite materials.

5.     Dental Crowns: Crowns (caps) are used to protect and restore extensively damaged or weakened teeth. They can be made from various materials, including porcelain, metal, or a combination of materials.

6.     Root Canal Treatment: When the dental pulp (inner tissue) becomes infected or inflamed, root canal therapy is performed to remove the infected tissue, disinfect the root canal, and seal it to save the tooth.

7.     Dental Sealants: Sealants are applied to the biting surfaces of molars to create a protective barrier that helps prevent tooth decay, especially in children and adolescents.

8.     Tooth Extractions: When a tooth cannot be saved due to severe damage, infection, or overcrowding, a conservative approach to extraction is used to minimize trauma to surrounding tissues.

9.     Orthodontic Treatment: Conservative dentistry clinics may offer orthodontic treatments, such as braces or clear aligners, to correct tooth misalignment and bite issues.

10.  Cosmetic Dentistry: Some conservative dentistry clinics provide cosmetic procedures, including tooth-colored fillings, veneers, teeth whitening, and minor tooth reshaping, to enhance the aesthetics of the smile while preserving natural teeth.

11.  Laser Dentistry: Laser technology may be used for various dental procedures, such as gum disease treatment, cavity preparation, and soft tissue procedures, offering minimally invasive and precise treatment options.

12.  Patient Education: Patient education is a significant component of conservative dentistry. Patients are educated about proper oral hygiene practices, diet, and lifestyle habits that promote oral health.

13.  Preventive Care: Preventive measures, including the application of fluoride treatments and the use of mouthguards for sports or bruxism (teeth grinding), are often part of conservative dental care.

The focus of a conservative dentistry clinic is to provide comprehensive dental care that prioritizes the preservation of natural teeth and emphasizes preventive measures to maintain oral health. Treatment plans are tailored to each patient's specific needs, with an emphasis on minimally invasive procedures when appropriate.
