Dental Hygienic Treatment is a professional intervention, which includes the disposal of scale and discolourations deposited on the surface of teeth. Scale is a sclerosis deposition on the surface of teeth, which cannot be removed with a toothbrush. Its colour can vary from yellowish-white to black and it can be located underneath or above the gingiva. The second form is easier to detect for the patient. Scale is not only a cosmetic problem but it has an important role in the onset of gingivitis. Accumulated scale, which has not been removed for years, can lead to destruction of the frame or loss of the teeth. In case of dental-hygienic treatment the dentist or the specially qualified hygienist removes the scale and after that smoothes the surface of teeth.
Motivation is another important way of prevention. Its aim is to teach the patient the right technique of tooth brushing and use of other dental hygienic tools (mouth rinse, dental floss, etc.) improving the individual mouth hygiene. Motivation must be started in childhood.

A comprehensive oral examination - in conjunction with a thorough medical and dental history - can also provide valuable insight into the overall health and well-being of the patient. In case of the first encounter it is essential to analyze the patient's case history (anamnesis, previous diseases) and exam the mouth, which enables the dentist to set up the treatment plan. Firstly, during the examination, the dentist surveys the face, touches the lymphatic nodes (extra oral examination) and examines the whole oral cavity. After careful inspection of the teeth the dentist examines the gingiva, the mucous membrane of the oral cavity, the palate and the tongue, which is essential due to the increasing number of neoplasm in the oral cavity.
Small X-rays help to observe a single tooth or teeth groups. The X-ray can help in detecting cavities or analyzing periradical processes.
Panoramic X-ray gives information about all of the teeth and also about the state of the jaws (thickness of bone), maxillary sinus and mandibular joint. It helps the dentist in creating the treatment plan.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, not only issues in severe health problems, but also can adversely affect a patient's smile. If left unchecked and untreated, gum disease can even lead to a loss of teeth. Periodontal disease is caused by a large buildup of the bacteria found in plaque, which erode the soft tissues of the mouth. In the background of diseases of parodontium (parodontium is the complex of anatomic components, which takes part in fixation of teeth) there can be genetic predisposition and general disease; but the most frequent cause is the inflammation caused by plaque (scale) deposition and inadequate oral hygiene. The early stages (gingivitis) are marked by red, inflamed, bleeding gums. If it is detected in these early stages, gum disease can often be reversed. In far-gone cases when other parts of gingiva are affected (periodontitis) a sachet can develop, which may result in bone destruction and tooth loss.
Dental-hygenic treatment has an important role in its therapy, which must entail the extensive cleanup and disinfection of sachets (curretage coupled with Corsodyl gel). In more severe cases it might be necessary to surgically intervene and remove the the junk around loose teeth. The atrophy of gingiva can develop in case of inadequate tooth brushing techniques. Gingiva will draw back causing sensitivity. As a treatment palliative (special toothpastes, paints, fillings) and surgical methods are available. Periodontal dentistry can help you feel more secure with your smile and ultimately help strengthen your teeth and promote better dental health overall.

Filling is a conservative therapy, which aims at the reconstruction of coronal and radical tooth destruction that has been caused by cavity and external injury. As a result of developments in technology aesthetic fillings are more frequently used than the outmoded amalgam fillings.
Aesthetic filling: as its name shows with the use of it we can reach perfect cosmetic results. Aesthetic filling substances are uttered in different tinctures. The dentist can sort out the adequate colour with the help of different colour ranges.
The in-lay is a transition between filling and prosthesis. Dentists use it in case of destruction/lack which cannot be repaired safely with a filling. Its substance can be porcelain or composite affirmed with fiberglass. After the building of the cave and taking an imprint the dental technician makes the realistic reproduction of the missing part, what the dentist will fix with cementation.
On-lay will be made when chewing surface of the tooth has been destroyed. Its substance is porcelain and it is created the same way as in-lay.
Root canal treatment (RCT) is one of most frequently used interventions in odontology because the cavity is commonly located near the dental pulp. In line with spreading of cavity towards deeper layers symptoms become more characteristic. Initially mild sensitivity can be observed. This time processes in the tooth are reversible, the treatment of the tooth can be a simple filling. During the exacerbation of a cavity constant spontaneous pain can occur which indicates that the cavity has reached dental pulp, causing inflammation. In this case root canal treatment is inevitable. It involves the removal of nerves, the cleanup and filling of ducts. In some cases we can observe necrosis of dental pulp without inflammation (e.g. accident) and in its therapy root canal treatment plays an important role. If pulpitis enters through radical apex and spreads to the fixing apparatus of tooth then it can cause periodontitis and later bone substance destruction. In treating overreach radical apex both palliative and surgical interventions can become necessary.

Tooth extraction is the removal of the tooth from the parodontium. Tooth extraction can be performed in two different ways.
Simple way: the dentist removes the tooth with forceps; the coronal part of the tooth can be well catched.
From surgical excavation: it is common in case of lower wisdom teeth due to their abnormal position (slant, recumbent) in lower jaw.
Wisdom teeth problems - speaking generally, if you are feeling any sort of pain or swelling in the back of your mouth where your molars are located, this may be a sign that wisdom teeth are coming in. Having wisdom teeth extracted is a normal part of growing up. Most people have their wisdom teeth extracted at some point, usually in their late teens or early twenties. In most cases, wisdom teeth are taken out to prevent overcrowding and maintain optimal tooth and gum health.
The wisdom teeth's shooting can be complete or partial. In case of partial shooting it will develop a shallow sachet between the crown and the mucous membrane covered part of the tooth and it will be difficult for the patient to clean it. Due to the developing inflammation (pericoronitis) the mucous membrane will be swollen, livid and very painful. If the complete shooting is possible we have to remove the redundant mucous membrane after the inflammation. The cause of wisdom teeth's difficulty with shooting is lack of place. The impacted and abnormally located wisdom tooth can cause congestion, which helps the onset of cavity and gingivitis. In these cases it is recommended to remove the wisdom tooth in surgical excavation. After anaesthesia surgeon cuts a little incision around the tooth, removes it with special instruments and closes the wound with a seam. In case of canine tooth in retention we also need surgical excavation. Dental Visit Hungary offers patients a wide variety of procedures and options for their wisdom teeth. Please contact us today for more information.
Root apex resection is a surgical intervention and its aim is the retention of the tooth and assurance of limited function. After the preparation of the tooth (apex filling) the root apex will be partially removed. The indication range is wide, but it is used mainly in connection with removal of dental cysts and commonly among incisor and canine teeth. It is rarely used among grinders due to difficult technical implementation.
Removal of dental cyst: we can find many, variable cysts in oral cavity. The most common form is the radicular cyst, which appears in the root apex. It always develops on the ground of inflammation. The surgical removal can be the effective therapy.

No matter what your age is, if you have one or more missing teeth due to a dental extraction, an accident or decay, this loss changes the look of your smile, your bite putting stress on surrounding teeth to compensate for the lost tooth. One up-to-date option your dentist may suggest for replacing the lost tooth is with a dental implant.
A dental implant is an artificial tooth root replacement made of pure titanium, which anchors into the jawbone and supports an implant crown. The bone grows around the implant screw's roughened surface. Titanium could be successfully incorporated into bone; it is biocompatible and stable, as if it was a natural tooth root but even stronger. A variation on the implant procedure is the implant-supported bridge or implant-supported denture. Dental implants can be for one tooth, several teeth or, in some special cases, for your entire mouth. This way you will have fixed permanent teeth again! Not only the appearance, but also the safe feeling of natural teeth is restored.
There is an advantage of dental implants that no other dental restoration can claim: it is the prevention of early bone reassertion. As with dentures, when teeth are missing the bone will resorb due to lack of stimulation by chewing, same as with dentures. It issues in the fact that the prosthesis will not find retention. This is not the case with dental implants.
Sinus lifting is a common surgical intervention nowadays. We thicken the adequate part of atrophic maxilla towards the sinus with the help of bone transplantation or bone expletive substance and as a result of it we enable the implantation.
Bone replacement will be necessary in case of lack of adequately thick bone, which could hold the implant. Substances used during the process of bone replacement can be the own bone of the patient (auto transplantation) or artificially produced bone expletive substance. The intervention can be carried out in maxilla and mandibula as well.

AESTHETIC TREATMENTS & ORTHODONTICS
These days it can be observed that there is an increasing claim for beautiful teeth. The coming out of new substances and technologies enables the dentist to appease the highest aesthetic claims as well. We can reach spectacular results in case of broken or coloured teeth with creation of porcelain veneers. A porcelain veneer is a slight, homogeneous layer, which covers the exposed surface of incisor and canine teeth and hides aesthetic problems. Its advantage is the minimal loss of substance (dentist needs abrade less from the tooth than in case of usual crown production) and colour and form will be absolutely perfect. In case of strongly filled tooth the use of it is not recommended.
Teeth whitening is another common aesthetic intervention in everyday praxis. There are two forms of it: whitening at home and in the clinic. Click here for detailed information on teeth whitening!
In first case, whitening at home needs a flexible silicone rail made by the technician on the grounds of imprint made by the dentist. The patient at home attains treatment. The patient puts a prescribed amount of the substance into the rail and inserts it to the upper and lower teeth. Tooth whitening can happen during the day or night. To reach the requested result treatment must be continued from 7 to 10 days. Whitening at home helps to reach lighter colour with 2 to 3 tones. The efficacy is mainly influenced by the patient's nutritional habits (if many pigment containing foods - coffee, tee, coke - are consumed by the patient the original colour will return sooner), mouth hygiene and smoking habits. In case of congenital and acquired failures of tooth substance, dental column sensitivity or gingivitis whitening is not recommended. It is essential to note that the colour of filling and prosthesis cannot be changed with either intervention.
Whitening in the clinic needs strict medical control due to the higher dose of used substance. As a result of the intervention it can be reached from 7 to 8 tones change. The intervention lasts one and half hour. After the mouth is prepared the dentist puts the substance on the teeth and lights them for 15 minutes with a special lamp. The process can be repeated if the tone change is not sufficient. The issues with whitening in the clinic are the same as previously mentioned with whitening at home.
Orthodontics is a specific area of dentistry that specializes in diagnosing, preventing and treating dental and facial issues, the most common, "straightening of crooked teeth". In layman's terms, the area of dentistry that deals with a "bad bite" also known in the dental profession as "malocclusion". In order to provide successful orthodontic treatment the dentist must be very skilled at using different types of corrective applications. They must be able to bring the teeth and jaw into proper alignment which requires an in depth understanding of how different corrective appliances work. The one drawback to orthodontic care, especially as an adult, is the length of time it takes to complete treatment. There are many new technologies today that make wearing dental braces less visible. Some treatment options can accelerate the time it takes to correct your bad bite or crooked teeth. The best way to determine a treatment option is to have a consultation with a dentist that provides orthodontic care or a specialized orthodontist. Straightening your teeth with traditional orthodontics allows you to keep your natural teeth without having to remove natural tooth structure. If your teeth are healthy and just need to be aligned, orthodontics will allow you to preserve your natural teeth.
Benefits of orthodontic treatment:
- Better appearance of teeth, smile and face
- Improved self esteem and self confidence
- Cleaner, healthier teeth
- Keeping your natural teeth without having to remove natural tooth structure
- An even bite for improved jaw alignment and function

METAL FREE DENTISTRY
Metal was the standby for most dental appliances for many years because it was readily available, durable and simple to work with. As dentistry grew more advanced, dentists and patients alike grew dissatisfied with the quality and appearance of metal and sought a better solution.
Sometimes these metals were not merely unpleasant to look at, they were also potentially dangerous. Mercury was widely used for decades in fillings for cavities, and these appliances often leaked their deadly chemicals into the bloodstream, causing a wide variety of health problems. Metal also required significant reshaping of teeth to accommodate the new filling which sometimes lead to significant pain and further damage of an already injured tooth.
What is Metal Free Dentistry? The solution for improvement came when advances in technology provided dentists and patients alike with several strong, long lasting, and most importantly, safe alternatives to metal. Materials like porcelain and dental composite reduced the visible amount of metal in applications such as crowns, bridges, caps, and fillings while providing healthier and stronger support for damaged teeth. Dentists and patients now had the ability to correct serious dental problems without further endangering their patient's health or appearance.
If you have always wanted to have a more natural looking smile, metal free dentistry is the solution for you. More and more dentists are exploring aesthetically pleasing yet cost-effective alternatives to metal, and there are more options than ever before. Find a knowledgeable dentist in Budapest today who can show you the numerous benefits of metal free dentistry.
