Micro-dentistry

Micro-dentistry is the practice of finding and treating the decay as early as possible. It is removing as little tooth structure as possible and making the smallest possible restoration and fillings, and ensuring the restoration is aesthetically pleasing and long lasting.

Micro-dentistry is the science based multi-disciplinary approach to prevent and treat oral diseases, by use of minimally invasive treatment and accurate early diagnosis.

Modern dentistry is based on prevention. Prevention is far better than cure. The dentist, working together with the patients uses her/his understanding of oral disease to benefit the patient by pre-empting any likely complication.

Caries is the scientific term for tooth decay or cavities. It is a complex dental disease that requires careful and highly competent consultation. In instances when prevention cannot be achieved, early detection of caries is very important. 

We use the newest methods and tools for detection of caries.

When carious lesions are evident those lesions need to be restored. Waiting longer requires the cutting away of more tooth structure, weakening the remaining tooth. Care always needs to be taken to conserve as much tooth structure as possible. That is minimally invasive treatment. The key to micro-dentistry is making sure that your dental experience is comfortable so it is easier for you to maintain healthy teeth for your life.
