Minimally Invasive Dentistry
Minimally invasive dentistry is a model of dentistry that treats the disease of dental decay first, then uses minimally invasive techniques to restore and rebuild form, function, and esthetics. Dentistry is constantly changing. Historically if you got a cavity you would either need a large silver filling or a crown that covered the whole tooth and irritated the gums. Not only were these options unsightly, they had side effects such as cracked teeth around the large fillings and bone loss around crowns. Today there is a better way. With the use modern technologies and procedures, teeth can be restored to full function and form with minimal impact on the tooth.
