Filling of teeth is the treatment that restores the anatomical shape and function of the tooth by filling defects in hard tissues and cavities with filling material. Simply put, it is the treatment of caries and the restoration of the shape of the teeth. The restoration process depends on the degree of destruction of dental tissue and the type of damage.
The process of filling teeth consists of:
- Cleaning of a carious cavity;
- Installation of the Insulating gasket;
- Installations of a sealant and the subsequent grinding;
Visiographic control and use of anesthesia are obligatory during treatment. After anesthesia, all carious dentin is carefully removed – this stage of mechanical treatment of the cavity is very important, because in the case of incomplete removal of damaged tissues, the carious process will continue under the seal. If the tooth is too damaged, a special fiberglass or titanium pin is installed in its cavity.
At the site of stretching of the connective tissue fibers, a new bone is formed, which supports the proper construction of the dentition and helps to correct the occlusion of the teeth. This useful biological property is retained throughout life and with proper care will ensure your charming smile.
Then the tooth is sealed using modern materials that can completely restore the color, shape and transparency of the tooth. A well-installed filling is indistinguishable from a natural tooth.
Our specialists install fillings that do not shrink, have a smooth, rough surface and imperceptibly, without visible borders, pass into the tooth enamel, without overestimating the bite and without contact with the gums:
- Light-cured resin-based composites.
Microphilic composites consist of very small particles. Due to this, they are well polished and are often used for cosmetic fillings on the front teeth. A large number of shades allows you to very accurately select the color of the seal.
- Seal of glass ionomer cement.
Used for distant posterior teeth.
- Chemically polymerized sealant
Sometimes used for posterior teeth.
- Resin-modified glass ionomer (The open sandwich technique).
Economy option. Saves time on the installation of the sealant, and, consequently, the client’s money. The essence of the technology: the base of the sealant is formed of glass ionomer cement, and the upper layers – of light composite. Due to this, they are well polished and are often used for cosmetic fillings on the front teeth. A large number of shades allows you to very accurately select the color of the sealant.
