The work of a dentist is characterized by using modern technologies, an individual approach to each patient, top quality equipment. Sterilization has a complete automated technological cycle. Therapeutic dentistry includes active preventive measures and oral hygiene education, conservative methods of teeth whitening (at home and at the dentist’s). We use three-stage cleaning of dental plaque and deposit with Air Flow devices, ultrasonic scalers. Tooth filling is made with up-to-date composite material. Gums are treated with a Vector device. In prosthetic dentistry we use porcelain fused to metal, metal free ceramics, partially and fully removable dentures, dental implant prosthetics. Surgical dentistry deals with extraction of impacted and half-impacted teeth of different severity including extraction and treatment of primary teeth, gingivoplastics, pericoronitis treatment.
Preventive dentistry is the most important branch of modern dentistry and deals with elimination of all reasons that can cause different dental diseases or lead to premature loss of natural teeth. Regular, proper oral care is not only an indication of the culture of any adult person but also the basic preventive measure to avoid dental caries and other diseases of the oral cavity. It is oral hygiene that our institute focuses on with special attention within preventive dentistry.
Professional oral hygiene includes:
removal of supragingival deposits with an ultrasonic scaler;
treatment of accompanying gingivitis that can be caused by injuries or unsatisfactory oral hygiene.
Removal of subgingival and supragingival deposits with the Vector device.
The Vector device makes it possible to fight against subgingival calculus and bacteria on a qualitatively new level by removing the plaque, hard deposits without blood, pain and injuries to the soft tissues around teeth. During the Vector procedure dental deposits and granulation tissues from gingival pockets are removed with ultrasonic energy. Thanks to a special mixture with microparticles endotoxins and deposits are removed from dentogingival pockets, teeth surface is polished, which promotes the healing process.
The Vector device makes it possible to treat hard-to-reach areas of the oral cavity, to treat pockets thoroughly and effectively, as well as to work with deeply located fixtures of dental implants. In dentistry the Vector device is used even for treating patients with highly sensitive teeth and gums. It helps kill periodontitis, makes it possible to avoid surgical interference.
As a result of professional hygienic procedures your teeth become perfectly white, beautiful, and, above all, healthy.
Prosthetic dentistry is an extensive field of medicine that studies diseases of the musculoskeletal apparatus and develops methods of diagnostics, treatment and prevention. Prosthetic dentistry methods are used in case of absence of one tooth, several or all teeth on the upper or lower jaw bones, cosmetic defects (inconsistency in the size, form and colour), arthritis, arthrosis of the jaw joint. Nowadays prosthetic dentistry is developing rapidly thanks to the use of the latest materials and technologies, renewing the function of the masticatory apparatus after loss of several teeth or one tooth. Today, different types of dentures become very popular among people who take care of their health. Dentures can be removable and fixed. Prosthetics can be made of porcelain fused to metal, metal free ceramics, as well as zirconia.
Advance technology in metal free ceramics become more and more popular as this type of prosthetics is mainly focused on esthetics. The denture is produced of high-strength ceramics containing no metals. This adds esthetics to the dentures, moreover, ceramics does not change in colour (it does not become dark), and is not allergenic. Prosthetic dentistry offers a lot of metal-free ceramic denture versions: crowns, veneers, inlays.
Types of dentures overview:
A veneer - is a thin ceramic plate (laminate) that is fixed on the front surface of teeth. Veneers add natural and healthy appearance to a tooth.
Metal ceramic crowns contain metal alloys or metal (titanium, gold, platinum, palladium, chrome-nickel, gold-platinum and other alloys). Depending on the metals and their alloys used we distinguish metal ceramics on gold, cobalt-chrome alloys etc. Further, the frame is faced with special ceramic mixture produced specifically for dentistry application. The facing is performed manually in several layers. After applying one layer the frame is burned in a special furnace that maintains a temperature of 950 ºC. This production technology creates a strong chemical bond between the metal and ceramics. The metal frame with ceramic facing can be seen in the photo, it is a ready-to-use denture.
Metal crowns also contain metal or metal alloys (titanium, gold, platinum, palladium, chrome-nickel, gold-platinum and other alloys). They are less common today.
What is a stump inlay and why is it necessary?
A stump inlay is an insert for a crown. Using these inlays a tooth destroyed to the root (or a tooth with very thin walls) is restored to be covered with a crown. Then an artificial crown is fixed to this inlay with special cementum. A stump inlay has root and crown parts. The root part of an inlay looks like a dental core (this part is fixed in the root canal). The crown part of an inlay has the form of a dental stump machined for a crown. That is why this inlay is called a ‘stump’ inlay.
What removable dentures are used?
Removable dentures - are prostheses the patient can remove and insert. They are used when a great number of teeth are missing, i.e. in the cases when there is no possibility to make a fixed denture. Removable dentures (unlike fixed dentures) mainly rest on the gingivae, but when natural teeth remain some load can be distributed to the remained teeth.
Complete removable dentures - are prostheses fabricated when all of the teeth are missing on the jaw. They rest exclusively on alveolar processes of the jaws (roughly speaking, on the gingiva), and the palate. Fixation of complete removable dentures (especially on the lower jaw) leaves much to be desired, as the teeth to which they could be fixed with clamps are missing. A complete removable denture can be made of either traditional plastic or nylon.
Partially removable prosthetics means that there are one or several teeth on the jaw that will be remained and used for prosthetics purposes. It means that a partial removable denture usually rests on not only the gingival but also on the remained teeth. These dentures can be made both of plastic or nylon and with a metal frame (bugel dentures).
Bugel dentures take their name form a German word “Bugel” that means an “arc”. Unlike nylon and plastic dentures this type of dentures is based on a metal frame. Thanks to this frame manufacturers managed to decrease the size of the plastic basis in the patient’s mouth, it means that the denture becomes more comfortable when you wear it, speak and eat.
Opportunities of modern pediatric dentistry form an absolutely new image of prevention and treatment of dental diseases in children. Now parents have no reasons to postpone the visit to a pediatric dentist. After little teeth emerged you should take regular and systematic care of them. Caries prevention should start as early as possible. Besides traditional caries prevention methods (teeth cleaning, healthy nutrition, etc.) other very effective procedures are used today. One of these procedures, the sealing of dental hollows (fissures), is rather widely used in developed countries and makes it possible to considerably reduce the risk of caries development. Dental plaque, caries, pulpitis, abnormal occlusion, all these dental diseases can be avoided in children if you take preventive measures in due time. Here not only everyday oral hygiene is meant.
Diseases of the oral cavity are not less spread in children than in adults. Love of sweets and improper teeth cleaning, children’s fear of dentists and parents’ poor awareness of the importance of early prevention and sanation lead to pathologic processes in the oral cavity. Caries and decay of primary teeth, pulpitis, infection distribution along the root canals, damage of permanent teeth, malformation of the dental row are the main dental diseases in children that require early treatment.
Another problem children often suffer from is abnormal occlusion. If you are willing and patient, occlusion can be corrected. Here special removable and fixed systems (plates and brackets) are used. Abnormal occlusion in children negatively influences not only the esthetics of the dental row and attractiveness of a child but also the general health. Occlusion correction makes it possible to avoid a lot of problems: masticatory disorders, musculofacial pain syndrome, formation of dental calculus and dentogingival pockets, teeth damage (fractures, abrasion, caries), as well as psychological barriers and complexes.
Surgical dentistry is an extremely important area of dental practice that is aimed at restoring the beauty and integrity of the dental row, correcting the lost function. The basic direction of this discipline is the study of surgical diseases, specifically, injuries of teeth, organs of the oral cavity, face and neck. In recent years surgical dentistry began to use new up-to-date materials, new surgical methods to protect against infections, minimizes the risk of postsurgical complications. Today, any dental surgery is only performed with most advanced anesthetics that even make the first anesthetic injection painless.
Surgical dentistry includes:
treatment of inflammatory processes;
surgeries to preserve teeth;
extraction of teeth;
Year after year, cosmetic manipulations on gums become more and more popular in surgical dentistry. Such procedures as gingivoplastics, frenuloplastics, elimination of gingival recessions, vestibuloplastics are performed most often.
Most people associate snow-white teeth with a successful and beautiful life!When a person has no reasons to be doubtful of his/her smile, he/she easily makes contacts with other people, charms them and achieves his/her goals! However much we desire to naturally have brilliantly white teeth, this still happens very seldom. Therefore, teeth whitening procedures that make our smile dazzling become more and more popular day by day. Causes why teeth turn yellow:
Insufficient hygiene of the oral cavity;
Excessive consumption of food with colouring agents;
Excessive consumption of sugar;
Once in six months professional teeth cleaning should be performed even if all oral care rules are followed. However, this includes only superficial procedures they almost do not change the colour of teeth. To change the colour of teeth whitening is used; it is chemical impact on dental enamel. There is professional whitening, at the dentist’s, and domestic whitening.
For professional cleaning we use three-stage teeth cleaning from dental plaque and deposits with an Air Flow device and ultrasonic scaler. Using different teeth whitening procedures, our dentists will help you partially transfer teeth whiteness maintenance activity to your home, which makes this service accessible for a wide range of customers. If the dentist detects some diseases of the oral cavity during the first examination, they must be treated before teeth whitening. If a patient has tooth filling material, dentists recommend replacing them after the whitening procedure as the filling material does not change its colour. The same concerns different dental onlays, for example veneers.
