Being one of the most durable tissues in the human body, tooth enamel is exposed to intensive mechanical and chemical effects every hour and every minute. We consume hot and cold drinks, chew sweet, salty and sour food. All this builds up aggressive environment in the oral cavity and may cause caries – pathological process in the hard dental tissue leading to tooth decay, cavities and such complications and inflammations as pulpitis and periodontitis.
Caries – Diagnosis and Treatment
Caries is the most widely spread disease on Earth. 93% of the planet adult population and 80% of children and teenagers suffer from it.
In its initial stage caries develops as small size chalk spots without any painfulness. Such symptoms can be easily identified at a regular visit to a dentist. Treatment of caries in the initial stage is simple and painless. It is done by reinforcing the enamel using fluorinated varnishes and solutions. Drilling machine and anesthesia are not required.
If the patient ignores symptoms of the initial stage or misses preventive visits to the dentist, caries develops into the tooth decay accompanied by painful reaction to cold, sweet or sour food. At this point the use of the familiar dental drilling machine cannot be avoided. The healed cavities are further treated with the reminerealizing glue solutions followed by the installation of dental fillings made with light-reflecting polymer composition. The filling is hardened after the exposure to the light of the photopolymer lamp, is finalized to fit the bite and polished.
If the treatment of the complicated caries is ignored, further worsening of the tooth condition occurs. Infections gets into its inner space including the pulp camera and root canals. At this stage the pulpitis is diagnosed requiring urgent surgical intervention. Otherwise the risk of emerging chronical form is unavoidable.
Pulpitis is treated by extraction the dental nerve (tooth depulping). The canals are then processed and filled, and the tooth is restored using common methods.
The most complicated task dental therapists are facing is the treatment of periodontitis. It is – so to say – the most serious and neglected stage of caries when chronic inflammation of periodontal tissue starts. Periodontitis required radical dental treatment using additional anti-inflammatory drugs and antibiotics. Otherwise there is a serious risk for the patient to get serious complications – formation of cyst or inflammation of the periosteum (periostitis). Tooth loss in such case is not the worst outcome for the patient who can obtain and suffer from such serious diseases as osteomyelitis and sinusitis.

- Follow the rules of everyday oral cavity care
- Follow the rules of tooth brushing
- Use fluoride toothpaste
