Methods of treatment of caries
Features of treatment of carious teeth depends on several factors:
Caries: diagnosis, clinical features, treatment
When the disease affects only the enamel surface, and shows the light, chalky matt spots, which will eventually darken. Caries in the stage of spot may not be visible visually, it becomes evident after vital staining or under a certain light. The treatment of both acute and chronic caries such depth is held equally - remineralization.
Formation of a small defect in the enamel requires dissection and sealing. Ideal for the treatment of anterior teeth suitable polymers for fissures and milk teeth - glass ionomers. For other cases, the material selected individually, taking into account all factors.
Tissue defect is within the enamel-dentin border, so their preparation drill can be painful, particularly with acute. In order to avoid patient discomfort and infiltration is carried out \ or conduction anesthesia (depending on which is located a jaw tooth, its structure and innervation).
