Dental X-ray & examine
Intra-oral X-ray & panoramic
During your first visit or request quotations through our site, it is advisable to have a panoramic x-ray showing the teeth and jaw structures.
In the cabinet we can take digital intra-oral X-rays , smaller but much more precise and very safe because it requires very small amounts of radiation given the high sensitivity of the digital sensor.
Other subsequent X-rays can be taken during visits reminder to ensure the good condition of the teeth.
Decay treatments & Dental Fillings
1. Amalgam Fillings
It is the oldest material. Commonly known as “seal”, it contains no lead. It is made of mercury, silver, copper, tin, zinc& The proportion of these metals determines the kind of amalgam.
In our office we use the latest generation amalgam called HCSC (for “High copper single composition”) are high-grade copper and very low mercury content.
Disadvantages: Not aesthetics. Its potential toxicity, mainly due to the presence of mercury, is the subject of much controversy.
He is not indicated for childrens, pregnant women and people with kidney damage.
Advantages: It is cheap and easy to use and is very resistant .
For these reasons in our office we will use that in some absolute indications; tooth concerned devitalized and destined to be crowned, in this scenario all the disadvantages cited are absent.
2. Composites fillings
These materials are much more recent. Initially they were used mainly for aesthetic reasons on the anterior teeth. But significant progress can now use a much broader, complementary with amalgam. They are composed of mineral charges diameter more or less embedded in a matrix organic greater or lesser extent. This proportion and the size of mineral particles determine the type of composite. They are glued to the tooth through a chemical preparation of dental surfaces.
Advantages: More flexible than amalgam (hardness very close to that of dentin) and aesthetics.
In our office we use the first composite post with a volume contraction of less than 1% Based on the latest innovations in terms of products 3M ESPE, Filtek “. This reduces by 80% stress polymerization and accordingly, we get an excellent integrity at the limits of restoration.
3. ALL-CERAM INLAY & ONLAY
The ceramic inlaid are more aesthetic and resistant than the composite; Made entirely of ceramic, they require preparation of the tooth and an empress is taken to enable their manufacture dental laboratory. This material lasts longer, at least 15 years but more expensive.
