- Plaque and tartar cleansing - the aim of the cleansing treatment is to effectively avoid the spread of caries by removing tartar, thus avoiding painful and complicated, and above all costly, treatment in the future.
- Caries treatment - treatment is applied according to the stage of caries. In the early stage, the treatment involves a precise cleaning of the teeth from plaque and calculus and the application of a varnish or fluoride gel to prevent further development of the disease. If caries has already penetrated the enamel after cleaning, the cavity is filled with a filling.
- Tooth capping for children - this is a way of treating cavities in deciduous teeth. It consists in soaking the baby teeth with lapis. This substance strengthens the teeth and has a bactericidal effect

FAQ - frequently asked questions about restorative dentistry
The frequency of dental check-ups is once every 6 months. In the case of children and teenagers, visits may be more frequent, especially if there are already carious lesions on the teeth. Therefore, it is a good idea to make sure that you are booked in for your next dental check-up and have this date written in your calendar.
The treatment of baby teeth is important for the health of children because it eliminates decaying bacteria which can spread with blood through the child's body and cause its weakness. In addition, healthy baby teeth contribute to the correct formation of the child's jaw and also enable the correct positioning of permanent teeth.
If caries is detected at an early stage, there is a good chance of completely healing the tooth without having to extract it. Thanks to restorative treatment, it is possible to avoid dental disease and inflammation in the oral cavity. Restorative dentistry allows you to keep your teeth healthy for many years.
Decay can lead to a number of gum and periodontal conditions, and is a common cause of bad breath. Untreated decay can also lead to heart, kidney and joint disease. If cavities in teeth are not treated properly, the internal structure of the tooth is damaged. The patient then begins to experience pain that worsens with eating, biting or temperature changes. If decay is not removed, it can lead to tooth decay and ultimately to the need for tooth extraction. Therefore, check-ups and regular contact with the dentist are important in order to prevent the development of caries or to detect and treat it at an early stage.
Tooth decay affects around 95% of adults nationwide. Tooth decay is often localised between the teeth because food residues are deposited there. Dental plaque, a combination of saliva, food debris and fluids that cause bacterial deposits, is responsible for the formation of caries. Caries is also influenced by genetic predisposition, certain diseases and poor nutrition, failure to observe good oral hygiene and a diet high in sugars.
The World Health Organisation recommends that tartar should be removed twice a year. Signals of excessive tartar accumulation may be inflammation of the gums, characterised by their redness, extreme sensitivity, swelling and bleeding, even when gently touched. The effect of supragingival scaling is to remove tartar from the dental crowns. The scaler head is applied to the tooth surface, then, thanks to vibrations at the right frequency and water at the right pressure, the tartar is broken down.
