Conservation and endodontics

This is the branch of dentistry which deals with diagnosis, prevention and treatment of dental problems, both congenital (hypoplasia) and acquired (decay).

The ultimate goal of this branch is to heal and maintain the natural teeth by using minimally invasive restorative therapy based on low impact on the body.

Indirect Conservation

When decay has already led to major loss of the dental structure, “indirect” restorative techniques are used.

These techniques involve one operating session in which the tooth is cleared from the deteriorated and infected tissue and a small impression of the cavity is made; our laboratory then produces the tooth segment (inlay) which will restore the tissue deficit; the inlay is cemented, adhesively, in one subsequent session.

Direct Conservation

In teeth with low to medium decay in development we are able to provide “direct” restorative treatment, which involves halting the process of decay and reconstructing the tooth in just one operating session.

Interception and Sealing

It is now recognised that prevention is better than cure, however parents may not notice the development of incipient decay in their children.

We carry out non-invasive treatment procedures of remineralisation and stabilisation of small, precociously intercepted dental problems.

We employ strategies focused on the prevention of decay by adopting treatments with very low impact on the body but significant effectiveness, such as preventive sealing carried out only after effective decontamination of the cracks to be sealed.

Preventive Dentistry

Our team is able to carry out preventive treatment focused on limiting the possibility that the tooth will suffer decay, or rather “precocious interception” which, by localising the smallest cavities early on, allows us to carry out point-like treatments with very low impact on the body and aesthetics.

Risultati estetici funzionali

All of the materials used for direct and indirect recovery of the tooth are able to mimic the dental structure perfectly, with the aim not only of functionally restoring the masticatory apparatus but also of restoring the aesthetic perception of a natural and healthy tooth, achieving results which were unimaginable until a few years ago, making even significant conservation interventions on one tooth or multiple teeth virtually invisible.

Laser-Assisted Diagnosis

As well as instruments with proven reliability such as combined clinical/radiological diagnosis, through “bite wing” radiography, we routinely use laser fluorescence instruments for precise diagnosis of decay even in the most doubtful and clinically difficult situations.The philosophy in our group is one of managing conservation treatment from the start, eliminating all of the factors which have led to the process of decay over time. From the determination of the risk of decay, we then move to the interception and arrest of the processes of demineralisation which are at the basis of the formation of cavities.
