Conservative odontology is the simple cure of caries and has the task of preventing larger problems such as abscesses.
Use in previous years
Until a few years ago, to perform the fillings, the classic amalgams were used, composed of a mixture of silver and mercury, which guaranteed good strength and durability by going to seal perfectly.
The negative point of the classic amalgam is certainly the aesthetic part, which in addition to having a very cured color, went to color the tooth of an unpleasant gray.
Use in recent years
To date to overcome the aesthetic factor, are used white composite materials that give good results in terms of durability thanks to adhesive substances.
These new substances can be used in all cases, even for the replacement of old amalgam fillings
