Your smile from a different point of view

Preserve your smile with Conservative Dentistry

Conservative dentistry, also known as restorative dentistry, is a branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of dental conditions while preserving as much of the natural tooth structure as possible

The primary goal of conservative dentistry is to prevent and address dental problems at an early stage to avoid the need for more extensive and invasive treatments in the future.

Conservative dental treatments include various restorative procedures aimed at repairing and restoring damaged or decayed teeth. These treatments may involve the use of:

  • dental fillings, 
  • inlays, 
  • onlays, 
  • dental crowns

The choice of treatment depends on the extent of damage to the tooth and the location of the decay or injury.

Conservative dentistry also emphasises preventive measures, such as regular dental checkups, professional cleanings, and patient education on proper oral hygiene practices. By maintaining good oral health and addressing dental issues early on, patients can avoid more complex and costly treatments in the long run.

Overall, conservative dentistry plays a vital role in preserving natural teeth, enhancing oral health, and ensuring the longevity of a patient’s smile.

Heal your smile with Endodontics

Endodontics is a specialised field of dentistry that deals with the study and treatment of the dental pulp and tissues inside the tooth. The term “endodontics” is derived from the Greek words “endo,” meaning inside, and “odont-” meaning tooth. 

Endodontists are dental specialists who undergo additional training beyond general dentistry to become experts in diagnosing and treating problems related to the dental pulp and the roots of teeth.

The dental pulp is the soft inner part of the tooth that contains nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissues. When the dental pulp becomes inflamed or infected due to deep cavities, trauma, or other factors, it can lead to severe tooth pain and sensitivity. In such cases, endodontic treatment, commonly known as root canal therapy, is performed to remove the infected pulp and save the tooth. After the root canal treatment, a dental crown or other restorative option is usually placed to protect and restore the tooth’s structure and function.

Endodontics also encompasses treatments for dental trauma, such as cracked teeth or teeth that have been knocked out of their sockets. Endodontic specialists have the expertise to address complex cases and save teeth that might otherwise be considered for extraction.
