CBCT, RVG, RTG
Every check up should be completed with digital dental radiography. X-ray diagnostics is the starting point in dentistry. Without it, it is not possible to make a relevant treatment plan or to begin with certain treatments. In our studio we offer you complete service, your plan of therapy and diagnostics will be based on modern digital dental radiographs.
In our studio we offer you following types of dental radiographs: RTG, RVG and CBCT.
When you visit us for the first time you will be welcomed by our professional staff, and our doctors will make the treatment plan and consult with you. Dental Masnić pays special attention to an individual approach. Based on the check up and your personal desires and wishes, the plan of treatment is established.
Bacteria reaching the inside of the tooth may lead to inflammation of the pulp which can cause you great pains. Sometimes the process that results in a dead nerve is slow and painless due to infection that progresses slowly. Through the root canals bacteria can reach the bone structure where they cause inflammation (abscess or granuloma). The infections of the dental pulp require root canal treatment. Placement of the crowns or the fillings is not possible if root canal treatment hasn’t been performed correctly, i.e. if the cause of infection isn’t removed and the root canals are not cleaned and filled properly. Slight pain and tooth sensibility is a normal reaction after the root canal treatment; it is actually your organism’s reaction to the microorganisms that are left behind. Sometimes, root canal treatment can not be performed due to obstracted root canals, previously poorly performed root canal treatments etc. Some of these cases can be successfully resolved by performing an apicoectomy procedure.
Orthodontics is an area that specializes in correcting esthetic and functional anomalies regarding malpositioned teeth and jaw. We make difference between traditional braces and removable braces. Removable braces are usually recommended for children whose development process is still in progress and they serve the purpose of directing the teeth and jaw development. By wearing it regularly you should obtain significant results. Sometimes, after the removable braces treatment, fixed braces treatment can also be necessary.
Traditional braces include placing and attaching the brace to the tooth and placing the wires that change the position of your teeth. We distinguish between metal braces and esthetic braces (ceramic or polycrystalline braces). In our studio you will find the variety of braces to choose from.
The future of orthodontics lies in removable, transparent aligners (such as Clear Aligners, Inman aligners) that can resolve more simple anomalies within a reasonable period of time, as long as the patient is serious and collaborative. The manufacturing of this type of aligners is expensive because it requires collaboration with licensed laboratories that posses all the technology necessary. We work with foreign laboratories (USA, Great Britain) that manufacture such appliances. But, also in Croatia this technology is developing and that makes it more approachable to our patients.
If you want the smile you have always dreamed about, SimplySmile aligner will make it possible for you. Most of the people won’t even notice it since it is literally invisible. Other than being transparent, you will find it easy to take off, and while wearing it you will feel comfortable. SimplySmile is the most recent product that modern dentistry has to offer. SimplySmile will change your smile in a safe and descreet way.
After analyzing your impressions, photographs and dental radiographs, by using the recent CAD/CAM technology, 3D printers and scanners, in our laboratory we will come up with your plan of treatment and produce the transparent aligners that will give you the smile you’ve always dreamt about.
Periodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the diseases of the periodontium, that is hard and soft tissues that support your teeth. When it comes to gum diseases it is important to stick to a control schedule because that is the only way to catch the first signs of the disease and to keep it under control.
After diagnosing the disease therapy can include procedures such as: calculus cleaning, cleaning and smoothing the tooth root. If the disease has advanced and there are periodontal pockets, they need to be cleaned by using microsurgical technique – curretage. Curretage includes scaling and root planing, cleaning the periodontal pockets but also removing inflammated soft tissue. After the therapy, often antibiotics are prescribed in order to eliminate all the bacteria. The procedure is performed in the local anesthesia.
Deep periodontal pockets require the next step in therapy, that is surgical removal of changed tissue. In some cases it is necessary to form the ridge and reduce the periodontal pocket. With a collaborative patient that maintains an excellent oral hygiene and with regular controls, this disease can be held under control.
Besides that, periodontics also deals with the esthetics of your gums. First of all, we think of gum recession and the so called Gummy smile.
Gum recession, that is pulling away of the gum tissue, can’t be considered a disease and for sure within a certain period of time it can cause various problems. It is necessary to deal with such changes on time.
Gum recession can be caused by a number of factors, such as tooth morphology, inadequate oral hygiene and the functional overload; also your age is to be taken into consideration. The characteristic of this change is pulling away of the gum margin without any signs of inflammation. Therefore, the tooth neck remains exposed and this can cause sensitivity. Due to these symptoms (recession and the exposed neck) you are more likely to suffer because of the exposure to bacteria and you are more likely to form caries of the tooth neck or suffer inflamed gums. Patients perceive recession more as an esthetic issue, especially if we are talking about the front teeth.
Smile that reveals visible gums is called gummy smile and it is not uncommon among patients. These people avoid laughing, or they cover their mouth. That directly affects one’s self-esteem. Correction of “gummy smile” includes dental crown lengthening procedure, so the gummy smile is significantly reduced. Optically we make front and lateral teeth appear longer and that makes your smile prettier. After this painless, short and effective treatment, patients leave the studio with a completely new smile; the results are visible immediately.
