What is Conservative Dentistry?
Conservative dentistry preserves the teeth in the mouth as much as possible. Conservative dentists performing procedures to remove damaged or diseased tissue attempt to limit the amount of healthy tooth removed, and focus on procedures that will conserve the teeth when it is a viable option. Extractions may still be considered if a patient’s tooth is too badly damaged to save. Services like braces, teeth whitening, and regular cleanings are important to helping conserve your smile and part of our approach.
In this approach to dental health, practitioners, like Dr Kerikorian, carefully evaluate dental problems to determine the extent of any issues and develop a plan to treat. His goal is to maintain the integrity of the tooth while successfully treating the problem and preventing any recurrences. During a procedure like a filling or a more invasive root canal, Dr. Kerikorian carefully removes any infected, dead, and damaged material while leaving healthy material behind. A variety of approaches are used in conservative dentistry to control the operating field and treat the tooth.
Once the dentist has cleaned the tooth thoroughly, filling can be added to preserve the integrity and prevent a recurrence by sealing the opening. This tooth restoration process can take varying lengths of time, depending on the extent of the damage and the number of teeth involved. At the end, the patient retains the majority of the intact tooth. Followups can confirm that the tooth remains healthy and does not have any additional problems, to make sure the procedure was successful.
Part of conservative dentistry, as in other fields of this health care profession, is preventative care. Dr. Kerikorian regularly inspects his patients for signs of dental disease, recommends cleanings to keep the surface of the teeth clean, and will provide advice on reducing the risk gum disease.
