 . The method is called remineralization of enamel. Dental therapist explains to the patient how important it is to visit a specialist twice a year to detect caries in the early stages. It is part of the preventive work of the dentist, which is very important.

If tooth decay has penetrated more deeply, but still destroyed the enamel, the destruction of hard tissue is removed using a drill (it does not hurt, because in the solid tissues no nerve endings), and then the surface is sanded and polished. If the destruction reached the dentin (the second, softer layer of hard tissue of the tooth), the cavity to maximize the sealing.

When penetrating into the cavity of a tooth caries often develops inflammation of the soft tissue (pulp) and the ligament that holds the tooth in the cell (periodontitis). In this case, the inflammatory process is first treated and then set the seal. Sometimes pulp cure is not possible - in this case, it is removed by various methods, and then only with seal tooth.
