TREATMENT

Odessa Dental tour facilitates the trip of international patients seeking in Ukraine for various kinds of dental treatment:

COSMETIC DENTISTRY

Cosmetic dentistry aims to improve the appearance of teeth. Main forms of cosmetic dentistry are veneers, tooth-coloured fillings, teeth whitening and tooth jewellery.

VENEER

A veneer is a thin layer of porcelain made to fit over the front surface of a tooth, like a false fingernail fits over a nail. Sometimes a natural colour ‘composite’ material is used instead of porcelain. Teeth veneers make teeth look natural and healthy, and because they are very thin and are held in place by a special strong bond (rather like super-glue) very little preparation of the tooth is needed. Teeth veneers can improve the colour, shape and position of teeth. A precise shade of porcelain can be chosen to give the right colour to improve a single discoloured or stained tooth or to lighten front teeth (usually the upper ones) generally.

TEETH WHITENING

Teeth whitening can be a highly effective, yet very simple way, of lightening the colour of teeth without removing any of the teeth surface. It cannot make a colour change, but lightens the existing colour. The dentist applies a chemical barrier to the gums, which will protect them during the whitening process. The whitening solution is then applied to the teeth and the chemical is then activated using heat, or heat and light combined. Once the whitening process is finished the barrier will be easily removed in one piece. If the teeth has been root treated, the canal, which previously contained the nerve, may be reopened and the whitening product is put in.

TEETH-COLOURED FILLINGS

Teeth-coloured fillings. Nowadays fillings are not only functional, but can be natural looking as well. Many people don’t want silver fillings that show when they laugh or smile because they are more conscious about the way they look.

TEETH JEWELLERY

Teeth Jewellery is the latest fashion craze. Teeth jewellery classic designs are an elegant compliment to standard jewellery. When placed on the tooth, the jewellery creates a distinctive expression of one’s individuality.

ENDODONTICS

Endodontics (root canal therapy) is needed when the blood or nerve supply of the tooth (known as the pulp) is infected through decay or injury. If root canal treatment is not carried out, the infection will spread and the tooth may need to be taken out. A local anesthetic is used during root canal treatment, and it should feel no different to having an ordinary filling done. The aim of root canal treatment is to remove all infection from the root canal. The root is then cleaned and filled to prevent any further infection.

PERIODONTICS

Periodontics is concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of functional and structural diseases of the periodontal membrane and related tissues that surround and support the teeth. Degeneration or inflammation of these tissues can be caused by various systemic or local diseases or by poor oral hygiene.

CHILDREN’S DENTISTRY

Children’s dentistry (pediatric dentistry) refers to a branch of dentistry that specializes in dental care and treatment of children under the age of 16. It includes the disease prevention, treatment and control over the child during the whole period from teething till maxillodental formation is complete.

RESTORATIVE DENTAL TREATMENT

Restorative dental treatments include dental crowns and bridges, and dentures.

BRIDGES

Bridges are used in cases where a tooth is missing. A replacement tooth is attached to crowns on teeth either side of the replacement.

DENTAL CROWNS

Dental crowns can be used for teeth which have decayed, damaged, or discolored to an extent that other normal dental treatments wouldn’t have solve.

DENTURES

Dentures are worn to replace your natural teeth. They are usually made from lifelike resin teeth bonded to a plastic base. You will either have been fitted with a complete denture to replace all your teeth, or a partial denture. Partial dentures are usually held in place by clasps or metal clips, which fit around some of your remaining teeth.

DENTAL SURGERY

Dental surgery is a borderland between many different specialties. It embraces any of a number of medical procedures which involve artificially modifying the dentition. Dental surgery is aimed to correct a wide spectrum of diseases and defects of dental character, on improving your smile and general health of your teeth.

IMPLANTOLOGY

Implantology is a variety of techniques aimed at replacing missing teeth, by implants, without damaging any of the neighboring teeth and without any risk or counter effects. A dental implant is an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw bone to hold a replacement tooth or denture in place. In most cases this artificial root is a titanium screw that is placed surgically in the bone. The screw then fuses biologically with the living bone (a process called osseo-integration) to form a strong foundation upon which a crown or bridge can be placed.
