What is Conservative and Restorative therapy?

Conservative and Reconstructive therapy is a discipline of Dentistry concerned with protecting and rehabilitating dental tissues that have suffered trauma using less invasive clinical therapies.

Mainly conservative and reconstructive therapy deals with caries, dental fractures, and morphological defects of teeth by adopting modern, microinvasive techniques that restore the tooth to its original shape, and thus its full function and best appearance.

Dental Filling

Conservative and reconstructive therapy uses different treatments. Let’s describe the recurring procedures:

Dental Filling – Dental procedure that allows to restore teeth compromised by caries, which therefore have cavities and fissures caused by tooth erosion.

Dental filling consists in the removal of decayed tissue and the filling of the cavity with composite material.

Dental fillings are a “direct technique”, because they are dental restorations made directly in the patient’s oral cavity during one session.

Dental fillings serve to interrupt the cariogenic process and to preserve the tooth from further damage (caries that reaches the dental pulp causing the well-known “toothache”).

Dental Inlay

Conservative and restorative therapy uses different treatments. Let’s describe the recurring procedures:

Dental Inlay – Dental procedure that allows to restore severely damaged teeth that require a more important intervention than a filling.

The dental inlay is an “indirect technique”, because it is a dental restoration that is carried out by a dental laboratory outside the dental session. In particular, the dentist performs a preliminary preparation on the badly damaged tooth, carries out the request for the dental restoration according to specific criteria to the dental laboratory, and in the following session applies it on the patient’s tooth.

The dental inlay serves to save the tooth and completely recover its masticatory function.

Tooth Neck Filling

Conservative and restorative therapy uses different treatments. Let’s describe the recurring procedures:

Tooth Neck Filling – Dental procedure that allows to cover areas of the tooth neck that have emerged due to trauma or pathological reasons.

Tooth neck filling is performed directly on that portion of the tooth that is uncovered, exposing a more sensitive part of the tooth made up of dentin (less resistant and highly nerve-rich dental tissue).

Tooth neck filling provide to eliminate dental hypersensitivity and restore aesthetic well-being.

Dental Reconstruction

Conservative and reconstructive therapy uses different treatments. Let’s describe the recurring procedures:

Dental Reconstruction – Dental procedure that allows to restore the morphology and functions of fractured dental elements.

Dental reconstruction is performed in a single session by the dentist, who uses composite material to recreate the natural shape of the damaged tooth. Dental reconstruction serves to recover the functionality and healthy appearance of the tooth.
