CONSERVATIVE ODONTOLOGY

CONSERVATIVE ODONTOLOGY

Conservative odontology is a dentistry branch that treats mainly cavities. The treatments aim to restore tooth parts that have been damaged, without the need to destroy the whole tooth, restoring the functionality and aesthetics of the tooth compromised by the cavity.

Main conservative odontology treatments are fillings, inlays and restorations.

In case of superficial cavities, after the removal of the damaged parts, the dentist makes a composite filling, which by now has replaced the silver amalgam one.
