Conservative

The conservative dentistry is “classic” dentistry, that is aimed to restore proper function and good esthetics of the teeth both in adulthood and in childhood. The goal is to restore the teeth affected by caries or trauma processes, through the use of all the conservative procedures so that the tooth is maintained in its own place and preserved as much as possible, avoiding the extraction.

INLAY

READ MORE
When the portion of the tooth to rebuild is considerable or in the case of very thin walls, and therefore subject to a possible fracture, it is advisable to proceed to the implementation of an inlay, which is a prosthetic device (inlay, onlay) executed in the laboratory by the dental technician (after suitable preparation of the tooth and the dental impression) subsequently cemented by the doctor.

FILLINGS

READ MORE
The dental filling is a common dental procedure indicated to restore damaged teeth by caries, restoring structure, morphology and aesthetic integrity. The dental filling is always preceded by the elimination of cariogenic process and an accurate and final disinfection of the area. Subsequently, we proceed through the use of a substance said composite to the restoration of the morphology of the tooth. The composite is a substance with a color equal to that of the tooth (in fact is available in various shades) consists of a main structure in resin (methacrylate) and a “filler” in mineral crystals, which has a coefficient of hardness similar to that of teeth. The proper procedure is to use a dam (thin sheet of latex) required to avoid contact of the composite with the saliva.

AESTHETIC RECONSTRUCTION

READ MORE
The aesthetic reconstruction is necessary when you need to restore the original morphology of a tooth that has suffered fractures or losses due to cariogenic or traumatic processes. Being available for almost each color on the dental composite, in most cases it is possible to achieve a perfect aesthetic adaptation of the obturation, made even more precise for Dr Bellinvia Studio is equipped with a modern dental spectrophotometer which allows an exact color definition. If you require more durable alternative to composite, it should be considered a reconstruction with ceramic inlays or composite.

REMOVING AMALGAM

READ MORE
The debate on the toxicity of the old amalgam fillings containing mercury (the so-called “fillings”) is continuously under discussion in the scientific community. These reconstructions were made with amalgam of various metals (mainly silver and copper in solid form) held together, that is amalgamated, by a liquid binder, precisely, by mercury. Beyond the hazardous properties of amalgam , it can be said with confidence that mercury is a toxic substance and therefore also its removal, it requires a precise protocol, in order to avoid patient exposure to the vapors of mercury that are released during the removal of the old filling. First, patient and medical staff should take appropriate protections from nasal inhalation of mercury vapor through various measures (nasal masks, masks with filters, etc.) and must be guaranteed an optimal ventilation and containment of the work area (for both the patient and the dental staff). Then proceed with the placement of a rubber dam (sheet of latex that covers the mouth leaving out only the teeth to be treated). This procedure is the same that is used for all reconstructions of the teeth but in this case, it is particularly useful to prevent the patient from swallowing the mixture of water, air and amalgam particles that are released during milling. The residues must be readily aspirated by the assistant with a vacuum at high speed and are not to be ingested by the patient. Of particular importance are the drills that must be of good quality to ensure a clean cut with a lower temperature of contact and thus lower emissions of vapors. Removed amalgam then the next step is the reconstruction of the tooth with a composite material as routine.
