It is really important “WHEN”
Patients can save time and cost by receiving timely and appropriate treatment ranging from treating cavities with simply filling holes to pulling out decayed tooth.
Cavity treatment is performed to restore the function of an affected tooth by filling in the hole with a filling. At this time, dentists use dental handpiece to remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fills in the hole with a filling made of a composite resin, gold, ceramic and so on.
The sooner the better!!!
There are many people who visit dental clinics only when they feel pain or having problems on their teeth. Even worse, many of them hold off seeing a dentist although they have toothache. Toothache caused by cavities does not last regularly that patients hold off visiting a dental clinic.
Neglecting the dental caries cause loss of time and money as well as severe pain. Delaying treatment for decayed teeth results in major losses after all.
Infectious decayed tooth leads neighboring teeth to have caries. Root canal therapy is needed in the cases when patients miss the period of treatment and decayed teeth affect to the nerve.
Decayed teeth influence even into the gums and in worst case scenarios, patients should receive dental implant treatment after the extraction of decayed teeth.
- Intial Stage
It is simple treatment.
Filling in the hole with resin after removing the decayed portion of the tooth.
- Progressive Stage
You may require dental inlay treatment.
Infected area is removed first, and then filled the cavity with inlay.
- Final Stage
After root canal therapy,as a preventative measure for teeth break dental crown procedures carry out for covering teeth with prosthetics.
- Implant Stage
Teeth that remain only root parts will be extracted.
Dental implant procedure
|Amalgam||The cost is cheap.||There is a secondary infection
Amount of tooth reduction is high
There is discoloration, corrosion
|Resin||Its colour is close to natural tooth color.
Amount of tooth reduction is minimal.
|There is discoloration
It can be worn when masticatory force is strong
|Ceramic||Its colour is close to natural tooth colour||It can be break from a severe concussion as it is a ceramic material.|
|Gold||It is made of gold which is harmless to humans.
|The cost is relatively high.
Area with gold inlay stands out and easily noticeable.
It can react with hot and cold foods due to high thermal conductivity.
|Tooth brushing||Florine||Dental Sealant|
|The best prevention-Tooth brushing||Fluorine makes enamel of teeth stronger.||Start from at the age of six to seven when cutting permanent tooth.|
|Foods remained inside mouth cause decayed teeth. The primary way of removing foods is tooth brushing within three minutes for three minutes three times a day. It is 3.3.3. tooth brushing for caries prevention.||It strengthens teeth resistance to acid and not only prevents from caries but also delays caries at the early stage.||Food particles can be stuck in gaps on a tooth which makes dental cavities.Sealants protect these vulnerable areas from tooth decay by “sealing out” plaque and food.|
