Any healthy person over the age of 18 can be a candidate for dental implants if there is a need for it.
You decide on the placing of dental implants in consultation with us, after a detailed examination and analysis of the X-ray images. Today, almost everything can be replaced with implants. From one missing tooth to all teeth in both jaws. Patients who are not suitable for dental implant placement are those who suffer from some systemic diseases such as diabetes or heart patients and those whose disease is not completely under control.
Each person is unique and we approach each one in the optimal way. If you have a systemic disease, and you keep it under control with therapy, this is not a contraindication for placing of dental implants.
Healthy baby teeth are the basis for healthy permanent teeth and a happy patient. Healthy baby teeth will save the child from pain, unpleasant and scary visits to the dentist, forced treatment and the resulting trauma.
Healthy baby teeth also enable proper development of the jaws, which prepare for the eruption of permanent teeth. If the baby teeth are lost too early, it is very likely that the child will need orthodontic therapy in adolescence.
The solution for such situations are porcelain or composite veneers.
You can get composite veneers immediately, they are modeled directly on your teeth, like fillings. For porcelain veneers, the procedure is a bit longer, but of better quality. Includes dental laboratory work. Porcelain veneers offer greater possibilities in color correction and greater aesthetics than composite veneers.
We recommend a checkup every 6 months. You will only spend a few minutes, and if there is something that requires therapy, we will spot it in time and adequately take care of it before you feel pain.
Bleeding gums after brushing are a sign of inflammation. Inflammation develops due to dental deposits, dental plaque and tartar that remain on the dental surfaces for a long time due to insufficient oral hygiene. Inflammation of the gums - gingivitis, if left untreated, can turn into a chronic form - periodontitis, which requires long-term treatment and, if left untreated, leads to tooth loss.
Dental sealing is a preventive procedure used on baby and permanent teeth.
Coatings are placed without grinding and are used to fill the grooves (fissures) on the chewing surface of the teeth so that food is less likely to get stuck and to make it easier for the child to maintain hygiene.
Ideally, it would be somewhere in the third year of life.
By that time, all the baby teeth have already erupted and we can perform an examination. Considering that children at that age are still small and are often afraid of unknown people, it is good to bring them to get to know us so that they can relax in the office, get to know the dentist and the instruments. In order for the child to grow into a healthy, independent person who takes care of his oral health, and a satisfied and happy patient, a lot of patience and gentle work is needed.
Teeth can be lightened in several ways, but we prefer laser. The combination of hydrogen peroxide gel and laser beams quickly, easily and painlessly lightens your teeth in just half an hour, up to 4 shades.
Teeth whitening is not recommended if you have untreated cavities, large fillings with poor margins, exposed tooth necks and abraded teeth, as you may feel pain and suffer from hypersensitivity for some time after the treatment.
Toothaches can be of different intensity and quality. Pain when eating sweet food is an undoubted sign of cavity. Sharp, throbbing or insidious and dull pains are a sign of nerve inflammation. They can respond to hot or cold stimuli or to pressure, i.e. a bite.
Proper maintenance of oral hygiene is essential for health. The patient plays the biggest role in this, and toothbrushes and toothpastes are only an auxiliary tool. We recommend using a soft toothbrush that only has fibers as densely distributed as possible, and change the toothpaste depending on your wishes and needs. There are medical and non-medical toothpastes on the market, those with greater or lesser abrasiveness, for whitening, etc. Also, for complete oral hygiene, use dental floss and interdental brushes, and mouthwash if you have specific needs for it.
For small children up to the age of three, toothpastes with a reduced fluoride content are recommended, because children at that age often swallow the toothpaste. It is also recommended that until the age of seven, parents brush their child's teeth or check after the child washes himself, because there are often many places left that have not been cleaned. It is recommended to use manual brushes, not electric ones, in order for children to develop motor skills.
