Conservative treatment

A common challenge that many people face, especially among the younger generations, is
tooth decay. Fortunately, modern dentistry has introduced innovative solutions to treat this
problem, and one of the most effective options is the use of fillings made of composite
Composite fillings are restorations used to replace lost ones tooth tissue or repair damaged
teeth caused by caries. Composite fillings are particularly popular due to their aesthetic
benefits and durability. These fillings consist of a mixture of plastic and ceramic particles,
which gives them a natural appearance similar to the natural colour of the tooth. One of the
advantages of composite fillings is their ability to chemically bond to the tooth structure.
This creates a solid connection that provides strength and stability to the restored tooth.
When it comes to preventing tooth decay, good oral hygiene routines play an important
role. Regular brushing, flossing and regular dental visits are all important to maintaining
optimal dental health. However, it is sometimes inevitable that tooth decay develops, and
this is where composite fillings come in handy.
Dentists often recommend composite fillings for the treatment of minor caries, as they
provide a reliable solution with minimal invasiveness. During the procedure, the dentist
first removes the affected area of dental caries, cleans the tooth thoroughly and then
applies the composite material in layers. Each layer is cured with a special light source,
and finally shaped and the filling is polished to ensure a smooth surface.
Although composite fillings are effective, it is important to note that prophylaxis remains
the best approach to dental health. Regular brushing, healthy nutrition and avoiding
excessive sugar intake all contribute to maintaining strong and healthy teeth.
In summary, it can be said that composite fillings have revolutionized the treatment of
dental caries by offering an aesthetically pleasing and reliable solution. With constant
advances in dental care, these fillings continue to be a popular and effective method of
maintaining dental health. Remember that regular dental visits for examinations and cleanings
are key to maintaining a beautiful smile and a healthy mouth. We would be happy to help
