Intraoral image of three to four upper or lower teeth focused on decay diagnostics in interdental spaces.
Pulling of tooth in local anaesthesia.
Aesthetic solution for front teeth where the front part of teeth is replaced with a thin facet. The most common material is pure ceramics.
PHOTO COMPOSITE FILLING
“White” tooth filling. A filling hardened by light. It is used only if we can dry the area around the treated tooth.
Fibre-reinforced composite post glued to a part of a tooth root, mostly on very damaged teeth, in order to prepare the tooth, i.e. to grind it away for a crown.
A small intraoral image inside the mouth, focused on one or two teeth and their vicinity.
A latex or vinyl sheet put on the treated tooth. It is an isolation sheet pressed against tooth necks to create a barrier between saliva and mouth bacteria and the operative site.
The whole surface of a tooth in the mouth is covered with a replacement material, such as ceramics.
A solution that replaces one or more missing teeth. The teeth adjacent to the gap are used as pillars for a bridge.
Orthopantomogram is a large image showing the lower and upper jaw and nasal cavities and the temporomandibular joint (between jaw and temple).
TREATMENT OF A CHILD WITH CONSCIOUS SEDATION
Sedation means calming down and relaxing so it is a treatment of a conscious patient. The patient calms down by receiving the appropriate medicines.
We use conscious sedation treatment for simple dental procedures of children who do not cooperate well or who are afraid.
TREATMENT OF A PATIENT IN GENERAL ANAESTHESIA
Putting a patient to sleep in the presence of an anaesthesiologist and subsequent treatment.
It is used for non-cooperating patients with multiple dental procedures.
TREATMENT OF A PATIENT IN ANALGOSEDATION
An analgesic effect means an anti-pain effect, sedation means calming down and relaxing.
Entonox relieves pain and makes a patient relaxed.
PALLIATIVE ENDODONTIC TREATMENT
A procedure aimed at removing pain caused by infected tooth pulp, which is removed and the root is filled with a healing filling.
A modern solution to a problem with teeth with extensive damage and prone to breaking. With partial crowns, the healthy part of a tooth is kept while removing the damaged parts and parts prone to breaking. This is how we usually finish the endodontic treatment of teeth.
Build-up of missing, usually decayed tooth surfaces using a filling to isolate a particular tooth and perform endodontic treatment.
SEALING OF A TOOTH
Partial opening, “drilling” of fissures on chewing surfaces of permanent molars and their cleaning and filling.
Tooth decay often starts in the fissures of permanent molars so we “seal” them as prevention.
A procedure indicated when the primary endodontic treatment fails. The most common cause of the failure is insufficient removal of bacteria from the root system and insufficiently filled root canal.
A partial removal of a crown portion of the tooth pulp and filling of the tooth with special material.
This procedure is used to treat milk teeth affected by tooth decay that reaches near the tooth pulp.
GLASS IONOMER FILLING
A tooth filling used when the conditions do not allow us to create a perfectly dry area around a tooth. It does not require a perfectly dry tooth. Its mechanical properties are worse compared to the photo composite filling.
Generally known as false teeth. It may be anchored to the remaining teeth or, if the jaw is toothless, “glued” to the mucosa. Given the options of modern dentistry, removable dentures tend to be a compromise for a patient who cannot be treated using implants due to time, financial or health reasons.
An image used in orthodontic analysis. It shows the entire skull in the side projection, which is important for accurate determination of treatment.
“Opening” of a tooth or pulp cavity, drilling a tooth to the pulp cavity, leaving the tooth freely.
A compromise solution for painful milk teeth when, psychologically, we want to delay the “pulling out” of a tooth until the end of the treatment.
