Features and Description of Medical Care
The Department of Operative Dentistry provides conservative treatment for the morphological and functional restoration of tooth substance loss caused by caries and other tooth hard-tissue diseases. These treatments also prevent pulp-related and periodontal tissue diseases. Furthermore, we provide treatment for the root canals of a tooth with the pulp infected by advanced caries, often accompanied with severe pain. If caries are left untreated, they never heal spontaneously. Therefore, early detection and early cure are important. A person might have dental caries if they experience pain induced by sweet foods such as chocolate, tooth sensitivity to cold water, and tooth sensitivity to hot water. We also perform painless treatments for dentin hypersensitivity, by which teeth without caries are sensitive to cold water or ice cream. Additionally, we conduct esthetic restoration such as whitening.
