CONSERVATIVE DENTISTRY & PERIODONTOLOGY
The aim of the Conservative Dentistry & Periodontology is to preserve the healthy tooth substance as long as possible with the help of the newest insights from dentistry. We remove tooth material that may be affected by caries and apply tooth-coloured filling materials, such as composites, to the affected areas. We fill larger gaps with inlays, onlays, crowns or bridges, produced by our in-house dental lab. These restorations conform to current international standards and are almost invisible.
Healthy teeth also need healthy anchoring in the dentition. Our Periodontology centers are the contact point for all those who have problems with the periodontium. Our experts in periodontology provide extensive conservative as well as surgical periodontal therapy according to the newest international standards.
Range of Services for Conservative Dentistry
To treat and care for diseased teeth, we use modern, conservative methods that preserve as much as possible of the tooth substance and retain the aesthetics of the dentition.
For the restoration of damaged teeth, at the EDG we never use silver-coloured fillings. Tooth-coloured plastic fillings or inlays and crowns made of full ceramics preserve an aesthetic dentition. These fillings are highly stable and withstand chewing pressure very well. To remove caries, not only do we use classic abrasive substances but also laser, which enables an almost painless treatment in most cases.
Range of Services for Periodontology and Prophylaxis
Bleeding gums, periodontal pockets, swelling or receding gums, as well as halitosis, are an indication for diseases of the periodontium. These diseases can be treated by our specialist team, formed by EDG and Eterna LHC in Gevgelija and Skopje, even in extremely severe cases.
When the gums have receded so much that the root surface is exposed, this is called periodontal recession. In many cases these recessions are due to dental malpositions, periodontitis, overlapping filling margins, piercings or an incorrect cleaning method. Teeth with recessions are not just an aesthetic problem, they are often over-sensitive and have a higher risk of root caries. Sufficient oral hygiene may also be difficult in such areas. The need for treatment, as well as the prognosis for a coverage of the root surface, must be discussed individually in our clinic for aesthetic and medical periodontal corrections.
Mucositis and peri-implantitis are inflammations around dental implants affecting either just the soft tissue or the bone as well. When left untreated, peri-implantitis leads to the loss of the implant. Mucositis, a preliminary form of peri-implantitis, can be successfully treated in most cases. We treat affected patients and implement conservative and surgical therapies, to save the implants, if possible.
Bacterial plaque or so-called biofilm can cause caries and/or gum diseases. Targeted prophylactic measures can prevent these diseases in most cases. A professional tooth or implant cleaning consists of removing plaque and polishing teeth and implants along with a fluoridation treatment. This dental prophylaxis is individually adjusted to your needs and implemented according to current scientific standards. In addition, our professionally trained prophylaxis assistants advise patients on their individual risks. Our professionally trained prophylaxis team also advises you how to best care for your teeth at home and which measures, from toothpaste to floss, are best suited for you.
