RESTORATIVE DENTAL TREATMENTS
Restorative dentistry aims to protect the health of teeth and all surrounding structures, to prevent and repair the loss of aesthetic and functional losses of the tooth, which occurs over time or traumatically. Aesthetic dentistry, periodontics, endodontics and prosthetic dentistry practices are used the most in this field.
In caries cases that have not yet reached the root of the tooth and root canal treatment is not required, filling treatment is an important restorative treatment that restores the aesthetic and functional losses caused by decay and prolongs the life of the tooth. If dental caries are not treated, it causes loss of the tooth and health of the nearby teeth. With the filling treatment, the teeth around the treated tooth are also prevented from being damaged.
To treat caries, the caries are first removed from the tooth. Then, special composite resin fillings are placed in the cavity remaining from the carious tissue to take the shape of the tooth. Thus, the aesthetics and health of the tooth are regained. Filling is a method not only to stop tooth decay, but also to restore aesthetically broken or deformed teeth to their natural shape. A regular visit to the dentist is essential for the long-term success of the treatment.
Today, filling materials provide aesthetically effective results with their colors that are compatible with the teeth. Composites are more aesthetic than amalgam or gold fillings since they are more compatible with tooth color.
