All of us clean our teeth at least twice a day in order to keep them in good health. After all, this daily routine is of crucial importance when it comes to keeping your teeth healthy and beautiful. However, it is still not enough. During the daily routine, we are cleaning our teeth thoroughly, but sill there is some residue left, filled with bacteria, in some hard to reach places, thus becoming a prerequisite for caries and other dental issues. The regular removal of dental plaque, calculus and bacteria with professional care for the teeth will prevent more complicated dental infections and inflammations. Thanks to the regular visits to the dentist and the good dental hygiene and the good dental routine, almost every dental illness can be prevented. That is why we are advising our patients to visit their dentist for prophylaxis at least twice a year, not only so that they can keep up with the health of their teeth, but also to get great tips on the most effective ways and products for oral hygiene.

The caries is the most common and widespread dental illness, which leads to lysis of the hard tissues and the tooth itself. The susceptibility to getting caries depends on few major factors: dietary habits, hygiene, and personal resistance. The symptoms, in the early stages, are seen in the appearance of darker or lighter spots on the chewing surface of the tooth. When the process is at a later stage, the patient can feel pain when consuming hot or cold food, sweet or sour, and by just pressing the teeth together, etc. And when the front teeth are being affected by caries, the whole aesthetic view of the face changes. The treatment of the caries often concludes in a single visit to the dental practitioner. However, int the cases where there is a deeper set caries, then a few visits might be required. The patient is given a local anaesthetic, then the contaminated part of the tooth is cleaned, and afterwards, extremely carefully the process for the reconstruction of the tooth begins. In that reconstructing period the shape, structure, size and colour are being restored by obturation (putting the filling in). The obturation (filling) can be directly shaped and formed in the patient’s mouth, with photopolymer or a similar material in a dental laboratory (photopolymeric inlay, porcelain (inlay, onlay, ovelay), etc.) depending on your personal choice and the dentist’s opinion. The methods for therapy can be used successfully also in the cases with fractured dental crowns with photocomposite, aesthetic reconstruction of the front teeth with abnormal enamel or dentin (enamel or dentin dysplasia) and other defects in the tooth’s crown.
