Conservative Dentistry

Conservative dentistry includes various kinds of direct and indirect restorations and is concerned with the conservation of single teeth in the mouth.

Conservative dentistry means the restoration functionally and aesthetically of patient’s original tooth, including dental fillings (new fillings and replacement), root canal treatment, crowns, bridges, veneers, inlays and onlays.

Conservative dentistry has three sub-specialties:

Operative dentistry
It is the prevention and the treatment of tooth enamel and tooth cavity. Operative dentistry is responsible to restore up dental condition functionally and aesthetically to an adequate level and also to have good oral health.

It is the prevention and the treatment of the tooth surface.

It deals with the roots of the tooth and its disease. Even at a healthy tooth surface can be a problem with the roots which can be very painful. The dentist must remove the diseased pulp during a root canal treatment and make the necessary fillings, this procedure called as endodontic treatment.
