Family Dent offers a wide range of services to all who allow us the privilege of caring for their oral health. Whether you are in need of a regular check-up or something a bit more complex, we are here for you.
We use A class composite materials. For front teeth we use high aesthetic quality composites. For back teeth we use high mechanical strength materials (SDI rock), resistant to chewing pressure.
We use high quality glass ionomer materials (FUJI IX, SDI) for fillings on deciduous teeth, as well as for fillings at the neck of the tooth. In both cases it is impossible to achieve an absolutely dry working area, necessary for composite fillings. On the other hand, glass ionomer fillings are less moisture sensitive.
Nowadays, patients set high aesthetic demands. That is why fillings are made in several nuances, so that the reflection of light would be the same as with one of the natural teeth.
- Teeth whitening
- In-office teeth whitening of all vital teeth
- Home teeth whitening of all vital teeth
- Non-vital teeth whitening
- Teeth jewelry (glass crystals)
Contemporary dentistry demands are not just functionally good dental works, but also high level of aesthetics. As we grow older, our teeth are getting yellower. Seeing that the colour of the tooth is determined by dentin (in the deeper part of the tooth) we cannot affect its colour by good oral hygiene, removal of dental calculus or teeth polishing. There are several methods for teeth whitening. We offer: in-office teeth whitening, at-home teeth whitening.
Non-vital teeth whitening
As time passes, root canal treated teeth get darker and become an aesthetic problem. When we don’t want to do any prosthetic works on them, we proceed with teeth whitening. Avital teeth whitening requires removing the inside part of the filling and making a cavity in which we apply the teeth whitener and close the cavity with temporary cement. The teeth whitener should stay in the tooth for a few days. The procedure is repeated until we get desired result.
We offer all types of prosthodontic works.
After thorough examination of the patient’s oral condition, we make a therapeutic treatment plan and, at the end, we inform the patient about it and offer an estimated price.
All prosthodontic works are made in regard to the patient’s wishes and financial capacity. Everything is done within a very short period of time, and the patient leaves our dental office with temporary crowns, which makes it possible for themto have normal social interactions and decreases sensitivity of treated teeth.
We offer guarantee on all prosthodontic works.
Periodontology is a part of dentistry which deals with supporting structures of teeth (gingiva, alveolar bone, cementum, periodontal ligaments around the tooth). Apart from caries, periodontitis is the most widespread oral disease which leads to bone loss around the tooth and consequently its extraction.
- Dental tartar removal
- Periodontal pockets curettage
- Air-flow teeth polishing
- Periodontal surgery
- Periodontal flap surgery
- Gingivectomy (gingivoplasty)
Dental tartar removal
Dental tartar is mineralised dental plaque. It is one of the main causes of parodontopathy, so it is necessary to remove it regularly. Subgingival calculus (calculus bellow the gingival collar and not usually visible) cause gum irritation and bleeding while brushing the teeth. Dental tartar and plaque removal make perfect conditions for impeccable oral hygiene, which is a precondition for keeping good oral health.
Air-flow teeth polishing
We perform sandblasting of the teeth with the Air-flow device. In that way we remove even the slightest pigmentation and achieve smooth tooth surfaces. After this treatment teeth are less receptive for dental plaque and tartar.
Periodontal flap surgery
Periodontal flap surgery is surgical elimination of periodontal pockets. It is advised when common, closed curettage of periodontal pockets doesn’t give results, like in the cases of deep periodontal pockets. After elimination of inflamed soft tissue, bone substitute material is added to accelerate new bone regeneration.
Surgical removal of impacted wisdom teeth and canines
Very often these teeth are blocked in the jaws and cannot erupt. They have to be surgically removed because they can cause pain, swelling and gingival irritation. Surgical removal refers to the tooth which cannot be seen in the mouth, because it is impacted.
Alveolar ridge leveling
Alveolar ridge levelling is a preprosthetic surgical procedure in which edentulous alveolar ridge is levelled, in other words, nicely flattened, so the appropriate prosthetic work can be done.
Closure of the maxillary sinus
Sinuplasty is a surgical closing of the communication between maxillary sinus and oral cavity, usually as a consequence of tooth extraction. The maxillary sinus can be opened because tooth roots are partially in the sinus or infection process at the root end penetrated the sinus cavity.
Frenectomy (lip or tongue frenulum removal)
Frenectomy is surgical removal of frenulum which connects middle of the upper lip and gingiva, middle of the lower lip and gingiva or tongue with the floor of the mouth. Plica removal is an oral surgery procedure in which folds between gingiva and lip mucosa are removed.
Dental implantology is the most demanding and most advanced part of dentistry. It deals with placement (implantation) of artificial teeth, dental implants, in the jawbone where teeth are missing. In our dental office we use the highest quality implant system.
Before the intervention patients are completely informed about the procedure and success factors of the treatment before making a final decision. After the procedure is completed, they are given detailed instructions about the maintenance of the implants and we proceed with regular monitoring through periodic checkups.
The most important thing when children are concerned, is that they come to the dental office in a timely manner (before any symptoms or pain). They will get to meet a dentist and experience the dental office ambiance. Only then they become “good” patients. Our approach towards each child is individual.
- Plaque removal and giving oral hygiene instructions
- Dental fissure sealing
- Teeth fluoridation with high fluoride content preparations (Fluor Opal Varnish)
Dental fissure sealing
Dental fissure sealing is a very simple and completely painless intervention. By applying fissure sealant on the pits and fissures in the chewing surfaces of the back teeth, flat and smooth surface is made. In this way food retention in the chewing surfaces and further caries development are prevented.
Teeth fluoridation with high fluoride content preparations (Fluor Opal Varnish)
Teeth fluoridation with high fluoride concentration preparations is a prophylactic method of teeth protection against caries.
Fluoride affects the teeth by changing its structure. Tooth becomes more resistant to the effects of the factors causing its morbidity.
Periodic fluoridation of the teeth is recommended, depending on the state of children’s teeth, and other factors (oral hygiene, orthodontic status).
Orthodontics deals with the moving of the teeth within the oral cavity and directing the growth of the jaws. One of the consequences of human evolution is that most children have to wear orthodontic appliances to correct the discrepancy between the size of the jaw and teeth.
Besides aesthetics, health aspect is also important. Properly placed teeth are more accessible for cleaning and therefore less damaged. Nowadays, not only children are suitable for orthodontic therapy. Adult orthodontic treatment is available, which is sometimes necessary for the prosthetic treatment and implants placement.
- Removable active orthodontic appliances
- Orthodontic monoblock
- Fixed orthodontic appliances
- Inman appliance
Removable active orthodontic appliances
Removable active orthodontic appliances are primarily intended to correct irregularities in children who don’t have all permanent teeth, although they are also used for correction with patients who have all permanent teeth. They are worn mostly at night and a few hours during the day.
Fixed orthodontic appliances
Fixed orthodontic appliances correct irregularities of the teeth and jaw in patients who have all permanent teeth. Treatment depends on the type of the irregularities and lasts from one to two and a half years.
Upon the completion of the therapy it is necessary to wear a retention appliance which keeps the achieved results.
