Minimally Invasive Dentistry
Minimally invasive dentistry is based on the latest advances in dental science, and aims at conserving tooth structure where possible.
During the past few years, scientific developments in the decay process, dental materials and diagnostic systems have changed dentistry’s approach to diagnosis and management of dental caries.
It is now recognised that demineralised but non-cavitated enamel and dentine can be ‘healed’. The surgical approach to the treatment of a decay along with the ‘extension for prevention’ mantra is no longer tenable.
Preservation of a healthy set of natural teeth for each and every patient is the focus of our work. In any health field, doctors aim for the conservation of the human body and its function, and dentistry is no different.
