The procedure involves ultrasonic scaling (the removal of dental plaque and bacterial toxins), sandblasting, and polishing. The patient is instructed how to brush his/her teeth correctly, as well as how to use dental floss and other dental hygiene devices at home.
Bad mouth hygiene can lead to serious systemic diseases and general discomfort.
Our office strives to ensure that both the equipment and the procedures employed in root canal treatment meet the highest world standards. We have different endodontic treatment systems at our disposal to be able to tailor the treatment to the specific needs of individual patients. The treatment involves taking minimum 2 RVG photographs (this is a digital radiography procedure that uses the lowest possible dose of radiation). In order to ensure better hygienic and patient safety conditions, the doctor uses cofferdam throughout the procedure.
We employ the SAF, considered to be the safest device for root canal treatment. It is now assumed that appropriate root canal treatment should prevent further tooth problems in the next 4 years.
Dental crowns are an ideal way to rebuild a chipped or broken tooth, a tooth weakened and eroded by caries, a large cavity that cannot be filled or receive root canal treatment because of the loss of too much tooth tissue.
A dental crown is fitted to the surface of the prepared tooth to give it a natural shape and outline and reinforce it at the same time. It is pasted on the tooth with a special dental cement.
Veneers are used to mask tooth discolorations which cannot be removed by other methods, correct tooth shape, repair chipped incisal edges (they look and function better than regular composite fillings), as well as to close gaps between the teeth (diastemas).
They provide a good alternative to crowns as they only interfere with the tooth tissue to a limited extent. They also do not require any special handling in daily use.
Whitening procedures carried out at an office ensure faster and more lasting effects than home treatment since they are performed with higher concentrations of whitening agents. Some are also accompanied by irradiation and performed at higher temperatures. Light and heat increase the rate at which hydrogen peroxide and carbamide peroxide are broken up and release oxygen radicals, which helps to split large pigment molecules much faster.
During the whitening procedure, it is necessary to protect the face of the patient and the doctor with protective goggles and with cofferdam, which protects the tissues inside the mouth. The gums are always covered with Vaseline or other protective substances. Our offices employ the ZOOM2 system.
In order to restore a missing tooth, enough bone is needed to introduce an implant. To do that, dentistry uses special bone replacement material, which is surgically placed at the bottom of the sinus to produce new bone. After some time (c. 8-9 months), the bone at the site is rebuilt and provides enough space for the implant. There are two different sinus lift methods: the open and the closed method; the doctor chooses one or the other depending on the specific anatomical structure of the patient’s mouth and the implant treatment plan.
At our offices, we use the state-of-the-art Piezosurgery equipment produced by Mectron, currently the safest system available for bone treatment.
In reality, the reconstructed tooth consists of a denture, a dental crown or bridge, and an implant. The advantage of implants is that they ensure the most lasting solution and allow the patient to feel confident when eating or smiling; they look natural as well. This treatment also spares the patient’s own teeth (the neighboring healthy teeth are not affected).
Mobile dentures fitted on implants are much more convenient than conventional mobile tooth reconstructions; there is no longer any risk that the denture will get displaced. According to official data, there are 213 implant systems in use around the world today.
Our offices employ three of them (Camlog, Thommen, and AB Dental) to address the specific medical issue and adjust the treatment plan to the financial situation of each patient. The Thommen and the Camlog are two renowned and well-tested Swiss systems with 20 years of market presence. As they rely on two different trends in modern implantology and mutually complement each other, we are able to offer a large array of treatment options for all needs.
A bone grafting material or scaffold is placed in the socket of an extracted tooth at the time of extraction. The socket is then directly closed with stitches or covered with a non-resorbable or resorbable membrane and sutured. After extraction, jaw bone has to be preserved to keep the socket in its original shape. Without socket preservation, the bone quickly resorbs resulting in 30-60% loss in bone volume in the six months after dental extraction. The jaw bone will never revert to its original shape once bone is lost and tissue contour has changed.
We grant each patient all the time he/she needs to feel fully comfortable. Consultation and discussion of the treatment plan are not limited to a single visit; all questions need to be answered and doubts dispelled so that the patient can actively and consciously participate in the treatment and help ensure its long-term results.
To keep up with the challenges of contemporary dentistry, we regularly attend professional conferences, congresses, and training events both in Poland and abroad.
In its essence, our mission is to provide comprehensive dental care, ranging from conservative and esthetic dentistry, dental surgery and periodontology (dealing with the diseases of the structures that surround and support the teeth), laser therapy, all the way to implants and prosthetics.
Current research show that in order to restore equilibrium in the mouth it is often necessary to perform procedures spanning various areas of dentistry. There is no other way to ensure successful treatment and full recovery.
