Oral Surgery is the branch of Dentistry that uses manual and instrumental operating techniques to treat a pathological condition, to improve anatomical functionality, to repair degenerated tissues and to enhance the aesthetic aspect.
Oral surgery encompasses a wide range of procedures, including the extraction of severely compromised teeth, tissue grafting to promote bone and gingival regeneration, implant preparation and the introduction of prosthetic components.
Conservative and restorative dentistry
Conservative and restorative therapy is a branch of dentistry that deals with the protection and rehabilitation of dental tissues that have suffered from trauma using less invasive clinical therapies.
Mainly conservative and restorative therapy deals with caries, dental fractures and morphological defects of the teeth by adopting modern and micro-invasive techniques which restore the tooth to its original shape, and therefore its complete functionality and its best appearance.
Endodontics is the discipline of Dentistry that studies and treats the dental pulp and tissues surrounding the roots of the tooth.
Endodontic therapy deals with inflammation and infection of the dental pulp, the tissue inside the tooth composed of vessels, connective cells and nerve endings.
When the inner tissues of the tooth are suffering, it is necessary to intervene with endodontic therapy to counteract the degenerative process of the dental pulp and prevent tooth loss.
Dental Aesthetics is the discipline of Dentistry that uses medical techniques to improve the aesthetic appearance (and not necessarily the function) of the teeth, gums, and bite.
Mainly they are treatments that aim to improve the color, position, shape, size and overall appearance of the smile.
However, even functional therapies have their own impact on dental aesthetics: think of the both aesthetic and functional benefit which offers a denture that replaces a previously fallen tooth; consider the value that has reconstruct a fractured tooth both in terms of beauty and from a functional and dental health perspective; consider the importance that has wear orthodontic braces for proper tooth position and bite closure, and how much correcting these features enhances a person’s smile.
For this reason, we would like to emphasize that there is no clear distinction between cosmetic dental therapies and more traditional dental therapies: aesthetic care often coincides with clinical care of the tooth.
Facial Aesthetics, in the field of Dentistry, is a complementary clinical discipline that uses medical techniques to enhance a person’s face by intervening on the perioral areas, that is, the tissues adjacent to the mouth.
Facial esthetic therapies performed at a dental office, if required, are part of the treatment process and involve lips, chin, and surrounding mouth areas.
Professional Dental Hygiene
Professional Dental Hygiene, referred to in technical parlance as “Detartraction” and by the uninitiated as “Dental Cleaning,” is the set of procedures used to sanitize teeth and periodontal tissues.
Meticulous cleaning performed by a trained physician serves to prevent and treat diseases that can affect the oral cavity.
In fact, professional dental hygiene makes it possible to remove all pathogens that can cause gum inflammation and dental caries.
Dental Implantology is the discipline of Dentistry that allows the reintegration of dental elements in patients suffering from partial or complete edentulousness through the grafting of a prosthetic implant.
Replacing one or more lost teeth is important, not only in terms of aesthetics, but especially for a functional perspective.
Scientific research has shown that edentulism negatively affects chewing, phonatory and respiratory functions, worsening quality of life and complicating daily activities such as eating and speaking.
Invisalign® Orthodontic Templates are clear, removable aligners that are used to properly align teeth during orthodontic therapy.
Their characteristics make them a invisible orthodontic device particularly appreciated and desired: the Invisalign masks® Are constructed of transparent resin, so they do not affect the aesthetic value of the smile; moreover, being removable Can be easily worn and removed according to the patient’s needs, such as during meals or to perform daily dental hygiene maneuvers.
Orthodontics is the discipline of Dentistry that treats dental alignment (intervening on crooked, rotated, and protruding teeth) and corrects dental malocclusion (tooth crowding and bite problems).
Specifically, orthodontics studies abnormalities in the constitution, development, and position of the teeth and jaw bones.
Periodontology is the discipline of Dentistry that treats the tissues of the “periodontium,” which is the set of anatomical structures that support the teeth and keep them stably attached to the maxillary and mandibular bones.
Periodontal therapy is used to maintain healthy periodontal tissues and intervene promptly to counter periodontal disease.
Periodontal diseases damage the entire supporting structure of teeth, ultimately causing teeth to fall out.
Periodontology is critical to halt degenerative processes in the periodontium: interrupting the causes of periodontal disease allows decay of the supporting tissues of the teeth to be halted, allowing patients to retain their natural teeth.
If periodontal disease has resulted in the loss of dental elements, one can intervene (after sanitizing and restoring periodontal tissues) with dental implant grafting, restoring full function and aesthetic safety to the patient.
Pedodontics, also called Pediatric Dentistry , is the discipline of Dentistry concerned with protecting and caring for the dental health of children and adolescents.
Regular checkups at the dentist are important for children to make sure their teeth are growing properly.
The development of malocclusions occurs as early as age two, and the health of baby teeth influences the development of permanent teeth.
Prescription dental drugs
A Drug is a chemical substance that is administered to prevent, treat or cure a disease, promoting a state of well-being in the individual.
The words “Dental Prosthetics” refer to all those dental devices that restore the functions of the mouth of a patient suffering from partial or complete edentulism.
A dental prosthesis is made in a dental laboratory on a dentist’s prescription, and must meet precise health standards.
Depending on its characteristics, dentures are characterized as either fixed dentures or removable dent ures (and thus removable independently by the patient).
Dental Radiology is an important diagnostic tool to detect otherwise invisible oral health problems and to further clinical information about the patient.
Radiology procedures in dentistry use low levels of radiation to acquire images of the inside of the teeth and gums.
Orthopanoramic – Radiological analysis that provides a comprehensive view of the dental arches and adjacent bone structures.
Orthopanoramic analysis produces a two-dimensional image of the entire mouth, including dental and bony tissues.
Orthopanoramic imaging is performed at the beginning of dental treatment to have greater awareness of the patient’s clinical situation.
Endoral Radiography (X -ray) – Radiological analysis that provides information on one or a limited number of teeth, deepening the information on a circumscribed area of the mouth.
Endoral rx analysis produces a two-dimensional image of a narrow portion of the mouth, describing the periodontal tissues.
Endoral radiography is performed to ascertain the presence of abscesses and granulomas, caries, and other abnormalities.
Conscious sedation in dentistry
Conscious Sedation is a medical procedure used in Dentistry to relax the patient and create insensitivity to pain.
Conscious sedation is usually performed to calm overly anxious people before dental treatment or to prepare patients who need longer-term care.
