Almost every person goes to see a surgeon-dentist soon or late. Sometimes the surgeon has to extract a broken tooth, sometimes to extract a “wisdom tooth” which hinders adjacent teeth, sometimes to correct alveolar bone of the jaw for prosthetic procedure, and sometimes, a surgeon can help you save your tooth! Now, we’ll explain everything step by step.
Orthopedic dentistry is engaged in restoration of lost structures of tooth and dentitions in general. Dentists-orthopedists can successfully replace the cavities affected with caries, chips of tooth walls, re-create tooth with an artificial crown, even if there is only a root left of it. Dentists-orthopedists are also engaged in total reconstruction of adjacent teeth in total or partial absence of teeth, teeth replacement on implants, production of removable and fixed dentures for restoration of extracted teeth. Finally, efficiency of your chewing function also depends on dentist-orthopedist. In primary visit, the doctor examines dental health, studies your needs and offers tooth replacement option which suits you.
Metal ceramics is proven material for restoration of teeth. It combines available cost, esthetics and high quality. Our experts master the most modern techniques of ceramic-metal crown production, including ones made on a framework of precious alloys. To create ceramic-metal crowns, we use ceramic paste Ivoclar IPS d.sign (Germany), which makes it possible to recreate all shades of the tooth color. This ceramic paste was recognized worldwide, and its durability is a standard among all ceramic pastes.
To maximize the level of esthetics, we offer metal-free crowns made of pressed ceramics. Absence of metal, high durability, magnificent appearance and transparency make these crowns "a golden standard" in tooth replacement.
Material for this type of restoration has been known for more than 20 years, and showed no disadvantages. Durability of these crowns allows to use them for any group of teeth, including ones with the maximum load. IPS e.max Press/CAD (Ivoclar Vivadent AG) is a high-strength disilicate-lithium glass ceramics which is processed in the CAD/CAM system, or pressed in a special hermetic furnace. Blocks of this material have a different translucency, depending on the purpose we are going to achieve, and by means of coloring, it is possible to individualize the crown as much as possible, creating any optical effect.
the Most modern type of artificial crowns is crowns on a framework made of zirconium oxide. By its optical and physical properties, this material is as close as possible to properties of tooth. Accuracy of these crowns is 8- 10 times higher than in metal ceramics, durability is 5-6 times higher. Its characteristics also allow to use this material for production of high-esthetic and extended bridge-like dentures and single crowns. These crowns are made by means of CAD/CAM technology. This technology is the high-precision scanner connected to the special milling center. After casting, the model with teeth is scanned, at the same time, we get a digital high-precision copy of a jaw. Then the technician models future crown with computer and sends these data to the milling center, where computer turns the crown with microburrs from the material block. After that, the crown is processed by the technician who gives it specific features.
Vinira are the thin ceramic plates which are pasted on the external surface of tooth. Thickness of vinir is 0,3 – 0,7 mm. Vinira allow to make your smile faultless, and also to improve the wrong position of teeth, to close odontoschisms, to change color of teeth. Despite small thickness, vinira are very durable type of restorations. It is achieved due to modern materials - pressed ceramics, or zirconium oxide.
at the same time, when we talk about "the Hollywood smile", most frequently, we mean vinira, since, in minimum tooth change, they allow to get magnificent esthetics.
If you need to restore a significant part of your tooth, but don’t want to do the crown, then production of a ceramic inlay is the most reasonable option. In fact, ceramic inlay is the restoration which is made not in the oral cavity of filling material, but in dental laboratory of special pressed ceramics (Germany) which has no shrinkage in oral cavity, and is much more durable than fillings. At the same time, esthetics of this material allows to do absolutely imperceptible ceramic inlays, even in significant destruction of tooth, when filling material can't guarantee long-term restoration any more, but there is no need doing a crown yet.
Tooth replacement on implants is the most perfect aspect of missing teeth restoration. Implants allow to do fixed dentures even in total absence of teeth in a person. At the same time, the patient’s chewing function is completely restored. Unlike in removable dentures, there are no alien objects in the oral cavity. Finally, the patient quickly gets used to this type of replacement, without feeling any discomfort. For bracing of crowns on implants, we use special adapters - abatments.
In tooth replacement on implants, in STs Edelweiss we use both standard, and individual zirconium abatments made by CAD/CAM technology which allows to get high-precision esthetic crowns. Functioning of these false teeth is as close to natural human teeth as possible, as if they were created by the nature itself.
Quite often, tooth replacement on implants is used also for improvement of bracing and stabilization of removable dentures which the patient wears.
“Who cares if the gum begins to bleed,”- such thoughts usually occur when periodontal disease begins. But, nevertheless, hemorrhage of oral cavity mucosa can be a sign of increasing problems with periodont. How are gingivitis and periodontitis developed?
Any person has a very large number of microorganisms In the oral cavity. Many of these bacteria are capable of destroying teeth and injuring gums. It occurs when microorganisms begin "to be stuck" to teeth excreting a large amount of waste products into surrounding tissues. These toxins are the irritating, injuring factors for the mucosa. If these bacteria aren't cleaned off from the surface of teeth, they begin to breed strenuously, and in several hours, soft debris is formed. It is one of the most dangerous, active conglomerations of bacteria in the oral cavity. Soft debris makes a decisive contribution to destruction of the main tooth outpost - enamel. And the marginal gum begins to bleed and swell - gingivitis.
If soft debris remains on teeth longer, then the bacteria form a firm cover around themselves - dental calculus appears. It mechanically injures the gum, the mucous edema is enlarged, and the inflammation progresses, which leads to gradual caries around the tooth, there is a gingival pocket, tooth mobility is already periodontal disease. Progression of this disease can eventually lead to loss of tooth and problems in subsequent tooth replacement.
That’s why it is so important to make an appointment with the relevant expert – periodontologist on time, who will help recover health of oral cavity mucosa.
Appointment with periodontologist in Edelveys dental center begins with filling a special form where the condition of your gum around all teeth will be visible. By results of the examination, the indices - indicators of mucosa condition are calculated. All this gives complete idea of the stage and severity of the disease.
On the basis of these data, the doctor prescribes treatment. All modern techniques of periodontal disease are presented in our dental center.
One of the most effective methods of treatment is use of Vector device. This is an ultrasonic periodontic center which allows to safely treat surface of the root and gingival pockets, up to 11 mm in depth. The unique feature of this device is that fluctuations of its point (unlike in traditional ultrasonic devices) are directed only vertically, which excludes injuring soft tissues, even at significant depth. Periodic use of this method allows to significantly improve state of oral cavity mucosa and to get rid of periodontal diseases.
After the cycle of treatment, hygienic and periodontal indices are entered in the card once again, which allows to study condition of gums in dynamics and to correct treatment. It allows you to see result of complex treatment visually.

Many people feel irrational fear of dentist since childhood. This phobia prevents some adults from fearless visiting dentist for the whole life, which, of course, has a negative effect on health of the oral cavity. Therefore, it is so important to teach your child to visit dentists and at the same time, to protect them from fear and negative associations. Children, as a rule, feel a fear not before the visit to the doctor. They are frightened by the dentist’s manipulations during the examinations. It is very important to accustom your child to them from the earliest age. In Edelveys dental center, the children's dentist always regards quality of the child treatment and their psychological comfort of paramount importance, but some recommendations should be given to parents of little patients, too:
Parents often underestimate significance of baby teeth care and visit children's dentist when the child feels pain. The reasons for development of temporary teeth diseases don’t really differ from those for adult teeth:
To avoid dental treatment, it is necessary to look after teeth attentively. When the child is small, their parents have to clean their teeth. You must start to clean your child’s teeth since the first tooth has erupted, applying special dental agents. At first, use a silicone toothbrush which is puts on the adult's finger, since the child is ten months, use a special toothbrush for children. It is necessary to change it every three months. Thorough care for baby teeth will help keep teeth healthy for the rest of your life.
Prevention of dental diseases consists in healthy nutrition and dental oral cavity care. Every day the child must eat food with significant amount of calcium (dairy products) and fluorine (seafood). Besides, it is necessary to limit the child in eating sweets and to watch that they properly took care of their teeth.
Prevention of caries is also conducted by dentists in medical institutions. This type of caries prevention for baby and adult teeth includes covering teeth with special protective varnish, the remineralizing agents. For full development of healthy teeth, it is necessary to periodically visit the children's dentist for check-ups, and it is necessary to strengthen enamel with special agents.
Our doctors can find approach to any little patient In Edelveys dental center, do all their best lest the child should be frightened, which is very important for dental care at adult age.
At first glance, tooth brushing is a simple procedure mastered by everyone. However, if it were so, a dentist wou.ld have several times less patients. Cause the main reason of caries and gum disease development is the deposit which constantly forms a sediment on the surface of teeth and gums. The deposit is bacteria which are present in substantial amount in the mouth cavity on every person. In the course of time, the deposit turns into dental calculus. Both the deposit, and the calculus have acidic environment which, day by day, effects on the firm dental tissue (enamel) — demineralizes and destroys it, increases permeability, contributes to gingival inflammation and hemorrhage. If you don’t remove the deposit and the calculus, caries and periodontitis are inevitable. Our doctor, repeated winner of professional competitions, dentist- hygenist Elena Aleksandrovna Krasilnikova, will help you to find proper approach to this everyday activity.
In some places with difficult access, it is difficult, and sometimes almost impossible to remove the deposit on your own by means of a toothbrush and toothpaste. That’s why we recommend to undergo professional tooth brushing once in a half-year (if you smoke or drink much tea or coffee- once in three months). What is professional tooth brushing in Edelweiss dentistry center?
At first, our doctor- hygienist removes dental calculus (if you have some), by means of ultrasonic Varios NSK device (Japan), then takes off soft dental sediments (deposit) by means of Air-Flow device. Air-Flow is treatment of tooth surface with special, small-disperse detergent which is delivered from the tip under certain pressure, with water. This is the most effective method of dental surface cleaning, as well as all the places with difficult access, “blind” holes. Air-Flow detergent also polishes dental surfaces which reduces possibility of “sticking” of microorganisms to the enamel. After the cleaning, the teeth are treated with hygienic preparations.
The hygienist will select the hygienic agent for mouth cavity which exactly suits you: toothbrushes, toothpastes, flosses, rinsers, and tells you about peculiarities of taking care of your teeth. A great advantage of Edelweiss dentistry center is a shop of hygienic agents for mouth cavity. The shop is provided with a wide range of professional toothpastes, brushes, flosses, chewing gums with therapeutic effect and other agents of dental disease prevention from European, US, Japanese, and Korean manufacturers. Besides, you can always buy from us irrigators for mouth cavity. Irrigators are devices for home application which deliver throbbing water stream to the teeth, which brings down the plaque from the firm dental tissues. Accept for improving mouth cavity hygiene, gum hydromassage takes place, which also contributes to normalization of mouth cavity health.Irrigators are necessary to people with implants, diseases of mouth cavity mucous membrane, multiple caries and to all those people who simply takes care of their health. And habituation children to everyday tooth brushing using irrigator turns into an amusement.
A pleasant bonus after professional hygiene of mouth cavity will be clarification effect for your teeth color, as a result of removing all the foreign components from the enamel surface.
Practically each person addresses the surgeon sooner or later - to the stomatologist. Sometimes the surgeon needs to extract the blasted tooth, sometimes to extract "wisdom tooth" which disturbs the next teeth, sometimes to correct an alveolar process of a jaw for a prosthetic repair and sometimes the surgeon will help to keep to you tooth! Now everything it is one after another explainable.
of the Reasons of an odontectomy can be a set: destruction, crack, orthodontic and orthopedic preparation of an oral cavity and others. Anyway, you have to, even during such procedure, feel comfort. At an odontectomy there are no trifles: correctly picked up anesthesia provides total absence of pain, modern tools - the minimum invasion, and modern techniques of excision - a bystry adhesion. All this, together with professionalism of the stomatologist - the surgeon allows us to extract teeth of any complexity with the greatest possible comfort for the patient.
the Surgeon can help you to keep tooth! The matter is that the modern surgical odontology allows to perform zubosokhranyayushchy operations and, thereby, to give to teeth "the second chance".
Happens so that the inflammation arises on the end of a root, and endodontichesky treatment via the root channel doesn't bring result. But in this case operation of a resection of an apex of a root is performed, that is the small site of a root together with the center of an inflammation is removed, thereby allowing to keep the remained root and tooth in general. The place where earlier there was a root apex with an inflammation, is filled with special material which facilitates formation of a new bone tissue about a root. Such technique allows to keep tooth which in usual clinic just would be extracted.
In the stomatologic center "Edelveys" surgeons - stomatologists are also engaged in an oral cavity mucosa plasty, a plasty of a bone tissue, correction of an alveolar process.
of Plastic of a mucosa allows to change its volume in those sites where it is necessary. The normal volume of a gingiva is very important as any change of a proper correlation "tooth - the mucosa" negatively is reflected in a smile.
of Plastic of a bone tissue allows to add bone volume where it isn't enough. It can be very important for installation of implants as implantation can be carried out only at the sufficient volume of a bone tissue. Thereby, such procedure allows to save the patient from removable prostheses and to considerably improve quality of his life.
Implantation is the method of lost teeth restoration by means of artificial roots- implants.Before treatment
This method is the most modern and the safest of all the possible methods. Implant technology is known since the middle of the last century, and the prototype of modern implants appeared in 1965. Thus, implantation has ben known for more than 50 years.
This is an artificial spiral structure specified for attaching to the bone tissue of jaws, and restoring the root of tooth. Implant is made of special alloy of titanium, and the surface is treated in the way to provide maximum bone integration.
Production of modern implants is very high-tech branch of medicine, where there is no place for faults and inaccuracy. Modern technologies allow implant to function in bone tissue for decades, and, ideally- for the rest of your life. In such conditions, higher price of implantation, as compared to other types of tooth restorations, is reasonable.
Classical method of implantation consists of several stages.
At first, the implant itself is installed to the bone tissue, then in 3- 4 months, special gum former is installed to the implant, and then, a permanent crown is made. But implant dentistry is constantly developing, so more modern and comfortable methods of implantation appear. For example, method of instant load on implant. That is, right after the implant installation, a temporary crown is attached to it, which the patient uses until the moment of permanent restoration. Instant load has already shown its efficiency: perfect bone integration of the implant, due to intensified blood circulation and intense formation of osseous beams. Doctors often recommend implants, while they have some advantages over other restorations, in particular, a bridge and a denture:
With implants, it is possible to completely restore chewing function.
Not all people have normal occlusion and even teeth by nature. Abnormal tooth position has negative impact not only on esthetics and self-esteem, but also on health of mouth cavity in general, while a great number of problems develops. The process of tooth brushing is compromised, mucous membrane of mouth cavity is traumatized, overload of some teeth and incorrect distribution of chewing pressure take place, which is followed by problems with temporomandibular joint.
The opinion that brackets are worn only by teenagers is a myth, while it is possible to correct tooth position at any age. Cause it is never too late to take care of the health of your teeth and feel fine.
How is treatment conducted in Edelweiss dentistry center?
During the first visit, you meet your doctor and ask all the questions which interest you. After the examination, the doctor will tell you how the treatment will be conducted, inform you of preliminary timeframes and price, compile detailed plan for treatment, conduct the diagnostics.
Diagnostic procedure includes: Plain film of your teeth (ОПТГ) , head picture (ТРГ), moulds for manufacturing plaster models of jaws and photographs of your face and teeth. On anlysing the diagnostic data, the doctor develops detailed plan of treatment.
Fixation of bracket-system takes about an hour. Bracket is pasted to each tooth with a special mixture (a sort of filling material). The bracket will be placed on the tooth for the whole period of treatment, sometimes it is re-pasted. The bracket is fixed absolutely hermetically, there is neither water, nor saliva to get under it. It means, that under the bracket, the enamel is not traumatized and closed hermetically. A bundle of brackets and the arch will shift your teeth to perfect position. During every visit, the doctor controls tension and, if necessary, makes the system more active.
In some cases, it is possible to use removable orthodontic structure- trainer which allows to correct malocclusion in children and teenagers in the easiest and most painless manner. Trainer is made of elastic silicone, so it easily removes excessive tension in muscles. Trainer is developed for treatment of early occlusion disorders. This structure can be applied beginning from 6 years old, when the orthodontist can exactly diagnose necessity of treatment.
Bite correction without brackets is directed not only to tooth leveling in home conditions, but also to removal of myofunctional disorders. Trainer is very comfortable for your teeth, because you can use it during sleep and wear for just one hour in daytime.
Everybody has their own period of adaptation for brackets, on average, it takes from 3 to 7 days. In adaptation period, we recommend to eat smooth, soft food. Special attention should be paid to daily hygiene of mouth cavity- professional tooth brushing should be done every three months.
The doctor can tell you only approximate period of treatment, a lot of things depend on individual characteristics of a patient. On average, the period of wearing bracket- 1,5- 2 years. You will benefit from the first changes already in 2- 3 months. In half a year they are evident. At final stages of treatment the changes are almost unseen, but this period is highly important for sustainable result, because it allows bone tissue to reconstruct itself and form near new position of your teeth. After the brackets are removed, the period of result retaining begins— retention. For each patient, the doctor selects their own retaining device(removable plate, mouth guard, fixed wire on internal tooth surface).
In our dentistry center, we prefer Damon bracket-system (the USA) What is the difference between Damon and traditional brackets? Arches of traditional bracket-systems are attached to brackets with special metal or rubber elements (ligatures). Ligatures cause feeling of pressure and “stretch”, they need frequent replacement, make taking care of brackets more complicated inhibit process of treatment. Damon brackets don’t require application of ligatures. They are equipped with their own mechanism for holding the arch in the slots– patent SpinTek cap. It provides very low level of friction, makes process of arch replacement fast and painless, and also allows to spend much less time in the dentist’s chair.
Damon Q is completely metallic version of Damon brackets. These are reliable and comfortable brackets from this group, the best choice when efficiency of treatment for you is paramount, and appearance of brackets is not so critical.
Completely transparent brackets. High estheticity combined with efficiency of Damon technology. It is optimal for those for whom minimal visibility of brackets on teeth is important, and those who are ready to be careful with their brackets(they are slightly more fragile). Among other limitations of this system we can note slight darkening of brackets in those patients who smoke or eat a lot of coloring products and beverages.
It is possible to combine different systems on lower and upper jaws. For instance, completely metallic, reliable Damon Q brackets on your lower teeth, and more esthetic Damon Clear on your upper teeth.
Technological level of modern dentistry provides a great deal of variants of improving appearance of your teeth. By means of veneers, crowns, ceramic inlays, it is possible to change shape, position, incline of your teeth, to close holes between them.
Those, whose teeth are even by nature, and there is no necessity to work on their shape, as a rule, wish to remove deposit from coffee, tea, red wine and tobacco and return their natural whiteness.
We can offer our patients to undergo Zoom bleaching procedure (Philips). It is the most effective and the safest system of currently available in the world. Very often, people are afraid of bleaching because of quite common fears of this procedure. The most frequently asked question: is bleaching harmful for my teeth?
All modern systems of bleaching many times proved their safety if applied properly. In fact, in bleaching, there is an exposure of tooth enamel, but these changes are reversible. The fact is that in saliva, due to its buffer properties, there are a lot of elements which are embedded in lattice of enamel unassisted, by which, restoring it. It is called remineralization. And this process goes on in our organism every hour, every day, regardless of the fact whether you’ve undergone bleaching procedure or not. At the same time, changes in tooth enamel in bleaching are absolutely the same as in drinking two glasses of orange fresh. This conclusion was made on the basis of study conducted in many universities of the world.
The procedure takes approximately two hours, but half of this time takes proper isolation and preparation for bleaching itself. The procedure itself is conducted in 2- 3 cycles 15 minutes each, the system completely excludes exceeding time of enamel exposure, which is additional guarantee of teeth whitening safety. In Edelweiss dentistry center, we created most comfortable conditions for patients who undergo teeth whitening procedure.
Besides, in our center, we can offer you home whitening. It is especially comfortable for those who have no possibility for long visits to dentist. For home whitening, we make individual mouth guards, give special whitening gel, explain all the nuances of the procedure. For sustainable result, it will be necessary to wear mouth guard for 15- 30 minutes twice a day.
Before this procedure, you need to consult with a specialist from Edelweiss dentistry center. During the consultation, your mouth cavity will be examined, all the nuances of the procedure will be described. After the consultation, it will be necessary to have professional cleaning of mouth cavity, to remove plaque and calculus, to treat caries nidi if necessary. After that, we can directly pass on to teeth whitening.
High-quality equipment combined with high skills of our doctors, gives patients confidence in the result and comfort of the procedure.
