What is caries?

The caries is a disease of the hard dental tissue caused by bacteria.  It leads to permanent loss of the hard tissues of the tooth, which in contrast to other tissues in the human body, cannot be restored. And, if not treated in time, it can lead to tooth loss.

What is teeth whitening?

Teeth whitening is a process of removing various discolorations (staining) of teeth. Those discolorations frequently occur in smokers, and among people who frequently consume coffee and soft drinks. There are two ways of teeth whitening: professional whitening (in-office) and home whitening. The purpose of the two ways is an application of a gel that will remove the discoloration and get the teeth even whiter. 

Does whitening can damage your teeth?

The teeth whitening products used at RENDEVSKI dental clinic are based on hydrogen-peroxide or carbamide-peroxide.  These products when are in contact with the organic matter (that cause discolorations of the teeth), release oxygen which corrupts them.  Thus, those products do not affect the tissue of the teeth and do not have any effect on the teeth. 

NOTE: The products for teeth whitening can contain high concentration of active substances which can cause damage to the soft tissues around the teeth.  That is the reason why the professional teeth whitening should always be performed under a supervision of a dentist.

What is apicoectomy?

It is a surgical procedure whereby a top of the root is removed together with the pathological process over the tooth.  The procedure of apicoectomy is a safe treatment and mainly it is a completely successful procedure by which the process of the top of the root is removed.

Is it allowed to have your teeth done during a pregnancy?

The pregnancy is NOT a contraindication for teeth procedures or extractions.  Actually, during the pregnancy you shouldn’t have your teeth x-rayed (except it is very necessary) but all the other procedures can be performed without any complications (root canal treatments, prosthetics, orthodontics, dental calculus cleaning, etc.). 

During the pregnancy, quite contrary, going to the dentist it is even more often because it is well known that the teeth have worse quality (because the normal development of the fetus needs calcium which baby takes from the mother's bones and teeth).

What is treatment of the root canals (nerves removing)?

The treatment of the root canals is a therapeutic procedure by which the tooth pulp is being removed.  As it is impossible for the infection of the dental pulp to be cured (except in the first stadium) the only solution for the tooth to be saved is its pulp removing.

Why around the white fillings sometimes the edge yellows?

The material used for the white fillings, at the process of getting hard (when the dentist uses lamp) shrinks. This shrinking is not so large, but it is still present. Then, the transition between the tooth and the filling occurs tiny crack in which enters saliva, coffee, juices etc. which stain the crack. So around the filling occurs yellow line.

In order to prevent that, the dentists at RENDEVSKI dental clinic, on the one hand, use high quality materials of the latest generation, which have the lowest shrink-index, on the other hand, even more important, treat the tooth specially. This procedure is called “enamel prisms skewing".

Are the dental instruments sterilized after each use?

Yes. All the instruments that come in contact with a patient get sterilized.  The process of sterilization at RENDEVSKI dental clinic is performed in three distinct steps.

In the first step, we put the instrument in ultrasonic bath in order to remove mechanically and chemically the remnants of saliva, blood or any content that would have prevented complete their sterilization from the surface of the instruments.
In the second step, we remove the hard fat manually from the surface of the instruments in order so they can be completely clean and prepared for the third step, the sterilization. The instruments used in surgical interventions, before the sterilization every instrument is packed in a special sterilization paper that is selectively permeable only for the steam of the autoclave (the sterilization unit). 
In the third step, the instruments are carefully set in the autoclave, a unit that under the influence of high temperature and high pressure destroys all the bacteria from the surface of each instrument, including AIDS and hepatitis viruses, and their spores.
