History

A patient came to the clinic with complaints of food getting stuck between the teeth, sensitivity to cold irritants, chipping of old filling part of a tooth.

Previous dental restorations were carried out about 5 years ago.

Clinical examination revealed violations of the marginal adherence of the restoration material to the tissues of the teeth, deformation of the chewing surfaces, the absence of anatomically correct contact points, and violation of chewing function and aesthetics.

Diagnosis and treatment

We have removed the old restoration material. The state of healthy dental tissues was assessed.

Diagnosis: dental caries.

The preparation of the teeth was carried out for the installation of ceramic onlays with the aim of preserving healthy tissues of the teeth.

Taking into account the degree of tooth decay, in order to achieve the durability of the treatment result, it was decided to install ceramic onlays by an orthopedist-dentist, which will provide a long-term result and restore the chewing efficiency of teeth and aesthetics. The preparation of the teeth was carried out before the installation of ceramic onlays, taking imprints, making and fixing ceramic onlays.

As a result, the chewing surface of the teeth was restored taking into account the anatomy of the fissures and humps of the teeth.
