Dental caries is a chronic infectious disease of the teeth, which is characterized by the destruction of the hard tissues of the tooth under the influence of acids produced by bacteria from dental plaque. Treating tooth decay was invented in ancient times, but with the development of modern dentistry, procedures have become more effective and painless.

Types of tooth decay:

  • Superficial caries - affects only the enamel of the tooth. It appears as white spots on the surface of the tooth.
  • Middle caries - affects the enamel and dentin of the tooth. It appears as a cavity.
  • Deep caries - affects the enamel, dentin and tooth marrow. Can lead to the development of pulpitis.

Indications for caries treatment:

  • Pain when eating cold or hot foods.
  • Tooth sensitivity to sweet, sour or spicy foods.
  • Bad breath.
  • Appearance of dark spots or cavities on the surface of the teeth.

Step-by-step treatment of tooth decay:

  1. Diagnosis - an examination and x-rays are taken to determine the extent of tooth damage.
  2. Anesthesia - local anesthesia to make the procedure comfortable.
  3. Removal of diseased tissue - a drill is used to remove diseased tissue.
  4. Shaping the cavity - a mold is created to be filled.
  5. Filling the cavity - fillings made of various materials (composite, amalgam, glass ionomer) are used.

Problems solved by caries treatment:

  • Pain and discomfort - treatment eliminates pain and tooth sensitivity.
  • Damage to tooth enamel - filling the cavity prevents further tooth decay.
  • Occurrence of infection - removal of the affected tissue prevents the spread of infection in the tooth.

After a cavity treatment procedure, the following recommendations should be followed:

  • Avoid hot, cold and hard foods for several hours.
  • Maintain oral hygiene by brushing your teeth twice a day.
  • Visit the dentist for preventive examinations.

Prices for caries treatment in Voronezh depend on the degree of tooth damage, the material used for filling and the professionalism of the specialist and the complexity of a particular case. In order to determine the final cost of the procedure, it is necessary to visit a face-to-face consultation of a dentist, where the doctor will be able to calculate the price of caries treatment. You can make an appointment for a consultation online or by phone number on the website of Olymp Clinic Voronezh.
