Conservative dentistry treatment is a form of dental restoration treatment that deals with conserving the functionality and the aesthetic appearance of your original tooth by means of dental filling treatment or dental crowns, dental veneers or tooth bridges, dental inlays or onlays. Also known as restorative dentistry, professional dentists practising this form of dental treatments pay minute attention to each and every form of dental defects and are also concerned about ways to correct the deformities. As per the studies and research papers of the Department of Conservative Dentistry, any form of repetitive dental defects can be prevented by the use of dental sealants and by maintaining oral hygiene. Conservative dentistry treatment comes with the following three sub-specialities:
Operational dentistry: This form of sub-speciality treatment is primarily focussed on the prevention and treatment of the tooth enamel, cavity or any form of dental decay. It is responsible for restoring the normal functioning of the damaged tooth including their aesthetic appearance. Maintaining a good oral health is also an integral part of this particular section of conservative dentistry.
Cariology: This particular sub-section deals with the preventing and treating the visible portion of our tooth from any kind of damage or decay.
Endodontics: ""Endo"" means the root. And as the name implies, this form of treatment deals with the tooth root and any disease or infection related to it. No matter how healthy a tooth surface might appear, the roots can be problematic and painful, and this is exactly wherein this particular sub-section of conservative dentistry comes into play. Aimed to conserve your tooth root, the dentist removes the diseased pulp and fills it up with a natural filling so as to prevent the decay or infection from spreading any further.
Depending on your dental condition, you dentist will suggest the appropriate form of conservative dentistry treatment for you.
