Conservative dentistry is the technique by which the mouth is treated avoiding the extraction of the damaged tooth.
Techniques are used to restore areas damaged by caries and other conditions, cleaning and treating the damaged tissue without affecting the rest of the tooth, then sealing the treated area.
Preventive dentistry is also part of conservative dentistry, which reduces the need for medium- and long-term dental treatments by sealing fissures, simple or complex fillings, and root canals. In cases where the depth of the lesion is very large, a filling is not enough, and an endodontic procedure is performed.
Among others, the most common are:
Obturations or fillings: Obturations or fillings allow us to treat small caries lesions that are irreversibly destroying our teeth.
Inlays: Inlays rebuild large defects in dental tissue destroyed by caries or other conditions. These can be made of various materials, although the most commonly used are noble metals, ceramics or resins.
A cavity not treated in time, the tooth has received a trauma and this has damaged the pulp or excessive wear are just some of the causes that may require endodontic treatment at our Carabanchel Dental Clinic.
It is a therapeutic procedure to avoid tooth extraction and the need for implants.
From childhood it is a question of maintaining the patient’s teeth and avoiding premature tooth loss.
