Conservative dentistry encompasses a set of dental techniques that seeks to preserve, with minimal invasion, the dentition. It is used to restore the areas damaged by cavities and other pathologies, working the damaged tissue without influencing the rest of the dental piece, avoiding extraction whenever possible. At Clínica Blanc, we are committed to conservative dentistry, as we trust in prevention as the basis of oral health.
Most of the oral problems that we treat with this type of dentistry are due to bad nutrition, inefficient hygiene or hereditary factors. The most common preventive treatments are:
- Dental cleaning: also known as prophylaxis. It is performed with the aim of eliminating tartar and bacterial plaque accumulation, which cannot be removed only with daily oral hygiene.
- Fillings: in the face of cavities, the damaged tissue is removed and a composite is placed on the dental piece.
- Dental reconstruction: it helps to recover the anatomy of the damaged dentition, by means of a series of techniques, and, with it, its functionality and aesthetics.
