Medigy: Operative Dentistry

Operative dentistry is a field of dentistry that deals with the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of dental caries, as well as the restoration of damaged or missing teeth. The goal of operative dentistry is to restore the function, esthetics, and integrity of the teeth while preserving as much natural tooth structure as possible.

Operative dentistry procedures include dental fillings, dental bonding, dental crowns, dental bridges, and root canal treatment. These procedures are typically performed to repair cavities, restore damaged teeth, and replace missing teeth.

Dental fillings are used to restore teeth that have been damaged by decay. The decayed portion of the tooth is removed and replaced with a filling material such as composite resin, amalgam, or gold.

Dental bonding is a procedure in which a tooth-colored resin material is applied to the tooth and then hardened with a special light. This procedure can be used to repair chipped, cracked, or discolored teeth.

Dental crowns are used to restore severely damaged or decayed teeth. A crown is a cap that covers the entire tooth, providing protection and support.

Dental bridges are used to replace missing teeth. A bridge consists of two dental crowns that are placed on the teeth adjacent to the gap, with a false tooth (pontic) in between.

Root canal treatment is used to treat a tooth that has become infected or inflamed. The infected or inflamed pulp is removed from the tooth, and the tooth is then filled and sealed.

Overall, operative dentistry plays an important role in maintaining the oral health of patients by restoring damaged teeth and preventing the progression of dental disease.
