Conservation Dentistry Treatment

Conservative dentistry treatment refers to a variety of procedures and techniques used to preserve as much healthy tooth structure as possible while still addressing dental problems. Examples of conservative treatments include fillings, inlays and onlays, dental bonding, and tooth-colored restorations. These treatments can help to prevent the need for more invasive and costly procedures, such as root canals or extractions, by addressing dental issues in their early stages. 

What Are The Branches Of Conservative Dentistry?

The branches of conservative dentistry include the following:

Operative dentistry: This branch deals with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of dental caries (cavities) and other conditions that affect the tooth's structure and function. It includes procedures such as fillings, inlays, onlays and dental bonding.

Endodontics: This branch deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases and injuries of the dental pulp, which is the innermost layer of the tooth. This includes procedures such as root canals, pulpotomies and apexifications.

Prosthodontics: This branch deals with the replacement of missing teeth and other oral structures with artificial substitutes such as dentures, bridges and dental implants.

Pediatric dentistry: This branch deals with the diagnosis and treatment of dental problems in children, including preventive care, fluoride treatments, and sealants.

Geriatric dentistry: This branch deals with the diagnosis and treatment of dental problems in older adults, including oral cancer screenings, denture fittings, and oral care for patients with special needs.

Periodontics: This branch deals with the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the gums and surrounding structures, such as gingivitis and periodontitis. This includes procedures such as scaling and root planing, gingival flap surgery and bone grafting.

Aesthetic dentistry: This branch deals with the diagnosis and treatment of dental problems that affect the appearance of the teeth, such as discoloration, chips, and misalignment. This includes procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, and orthodontics.

What Are Different Types of Conservative Dentistry Treatment?

There are several different types of conservative dental treatments, which include:

Dental Fillings: Dental fillings are used to repair small to medium-sized cavities caused by tooth decay. The most common types of fillings are amalgam (silver), composite (tooth-colored), and gold.

Inlays and Onlays: Inlays and onlays are similar to fillings, but they are custom-made in a dental laboratory and are used to repair larger cavities or damage to the tooth's surface. They can be made of materials such as porcelain, composite resin, or gold.

Dental Bonding: Dental bonding is a procedure that uses a tooth-colored composite resin to repair chips, cracks, or gaps in the teeth. It can also be used to change the shape or color of the teeth.

Dental Crowns: A dental crown is a cap that is placed over a damaged tooth to protect and restore it to its normal shape and size. Crowns can be made of materials such as porcelain, ceramic, metal, or a combination of these materials.

Dental Bridges: A dental bridge is used to replace one or more missing teeth. The bridge is anchored to the remaining teeth on either side of the gap and the artificial tooth or teeth are suspended in between.

Dental Veneers: Dental veneers are thin, custom-made shells that are placed over the front surface of the teeth to improve their appearance. They can be used to change the shape, size, or color of the teeth.

Root Canal: A root canal is a procedure used to treat an infected or inflamed pulp of a tooth. The pulp chamber and root canals are cleaned and sealed to prevent further infection.

Gum treatment: Gum treatment is a procedure used to treat and prevent gum disease, which is an infection of the tissues that surround and support the teeth. This includes scaling and root planing, gingival flap surgery and bone grafting. It's important to note that these treatments are not mutually exclusive and may be combined to achieve the best outcome depending on the case. ,

How Is Conservative Dentistry Treatment Get Done?

The process of conservative dental treatment varies depending on the specific procedure being performed. However, most conservative dental treatments involve the following general steps:

Initial consultation: The dentist will examine your teeth and gums to determine the best course of treatment. They may take X-rays or other diagnostic images to get a better understanding of the problem.

Preparation: Depending on the treatment, the dentist may need to numb the area around the tooth with a local anesthetic. They will then clean and prepare the tooth for the procedure.

Procedure: The specific procedure will be performed by the dentist. For example, if you are getting a filling, the dentist will remove the decay and fill the cavity with the appropriate material. If you are getting a dental crown, the dentist will first shape the tooth, take an impression, and then place a temporary crown while the permanent one is being made.

Recovery: After the procedure, the dentist will provide you with instructions on how to care for your teeth and gums during the recovery period. They may also schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your progress. It's important to note that some procedures may require multiple visits, such as a root canal treatment, and some may be done in a single visit, such as a dental filling. Your dentist will be able to provide you with a detailed overview of the treatment and what to expect. It's also important to follow your dentist's instructions for post-treatment care, such as eating and drinking restrictions, oral hygiene instructions and pain management instructions to ensure the best possible outcome.

What are the advantages of Conservative Dentistry?

Conservative dentistry has several advantages, including:

Preservation of natural teeth: Conservative dental treatments aim to preserve as much of the natural tooth structure as possible. This helps to maintain the function and integrity of the teeth and reduces the need for more invasive procedures such as extractions.

Cost-effective: Conservative dental treatments are typically less expensive than more invasive procedures. Additionally, by addressing dental problems in their early stages, conservative treatments can prevent the need for more costly procedures down the road.

Minimally invasive: Conservative dental treatments are typically less invasive than more extensive procedures such as extractions or root canals. This can result in less pain and discomfort for the patient, as well as a faster recovery time.

Aesthetically pleasing: Many conservative dental treatments use tooth-colored materials, such as composite resin or porcelain, which can improve the appearance of the teeth. Maintaining oral health: Conservative treatments help to maintain oral health by addressing issues such as tooth decay and gum disease in their early stages. This can help prevent the progression of these problems and protect overall oral health.

Long lasting: With proper care and maintenance, many conservative dental treatments can last for several years, which can help to save money in the long run.

Good for children and older adults: Conservative treatments are particularly beneficial for children, whose teeth and jaws are still developing, and older adults, whose teeth may be more fragile. These treatments can help to preserve teeth and maintain oral health without causing undue stress on the teeth or gums.

Preventive care: Conservative treatments are often used as a form of preventive care, helping to prevent dental problems from developing or getting worse.

I had some orthodontic problems back at home and I wanted to change my teeth' appearance so bad!, Dr. Eren helped me with this and they look astonishing Clinic is clean and the staff is very overwhelming, highly recommended!

I had an unfortunate fight with my Airbnb host over some accommodation issues and my teeth got damaged, I went to Papatya for a check-up for my front teeth. They were so calming and helpful. Lucky me they had their orthodontist working on that day so they fitted me in. My front two teeth were swinging a bit and Dr. Hasan did an amazing job just in about 30 mins. He told me to go for a check-up after two weeks since I was going back home. I went for a check-up back in home and everything went fine. Thanks to Dr. Hasan my front teeth are still healthy. They have an amazing staff, Thank you Papatya you’re a lifesaver.

I used to have couple of missing teeth since I wasn’t caring much about my teeth and I regret it, Dr. Ahmet is the best implant specialist I’ve seen. He tell you the best treatment for you and he answers all your questions. He is really so experienced and professional. Thank you for everything and special thanks to Dr. Ahmet and his assistant

I had some teeth problems regarding fillings, veneers and implants. Papatya is a life saver, the implants installing process wasn’t hard at all, it took less than 1 hour for 3 implants, I came back after two months after the implant was done, zirconia crowns are the best materials and they suggested it for me. I’m so happy with my smile makeover, thank you Papatya for making me smile again

After long time on Google search, and talking to a lot of people, I have decided on PAPATYA Dental Hospital, in Antalya.
I have chosen PAPATYA Dental Hospital. Already from day one I was started feeling relaxed from the welcoming from the lobby young people, Merve the beautiful young Lady and the handsome young Man Emre. The travel coordinators/translators, Bazi and Toga and the hospitals driver's. The implantation doctor, Dr.Ahmet Göktaş, I do hope that is the correct spelling. He is kind and friendly and above all very good in what he does. The Young dentist have treated me Yesterday, was very gentle and kind. I will find out about he's name on Tuesday when he will work on me again. Not to forget their supervisor, he's just fine person. I don't recall the name but I will correct my report in an other time, I am sure. OK, take good care of yourselves everyone. Keep Healthy in order to be able to help more people coming to your way.

Pietro Cuombo Pietro Cuombo / UK
