Dentistry is the area of Dental Medicine dedicated to restoration of lost dental structure, caused mainly by cavities or through blunt trauma. The restoration of dental anatomy with the use of various biomaterials can improve aesthetics and functionality.
A dental cavity is a disease caused by bacteria that develops from the tooth surface. These bacteria produce acids that destroy tooth tissue, forming a cavity. If left untreated, the cavity increases over time until it reaches the innermost layer of the tooth, or dental pulp, where the nerve resides among other structures.
At the Alcoforado Clinic, we promote routine appointments with the Oral Hygienist, and/or with the Dentist. We perform a careful evaluation of your teeth, commonly using x-rays, to support early clinical diagnosis of target treatments. The treatment performed by the Dentist will consist of removing the decayed dental tissue and replacing the lost structure with a restorative material.
The frequent consumption of sugary foods and drinks facilitates the spread of cavities, especially when associated with smoking habits and certain pathologies. In order to prevent the appearance of cavities, tooth brushing with fluoride toothpaste along with the use of dental floss and interdental brushes will prevent the development of cavities, keeping the mouth healthy. These are some of the prevention techniques that are shared during dentistry appointments at the Alcoforado Clinic.
RECOGNISED FOR ITS PROFOUND KNOWLEDGE IN PERIODONTOLOGY, THE ALCOFORADO CLINIC ENSURES THE PREVENTION, TREATMENT AND MAINTENANCE OF GUM HEALTH AND OTHER TISSUES THAT SUPPORT THE TEETH.
