Restorative Dentistry and Endodontics deal with hard and soft tooth tissue disease diagnoses and provide a prognosis for treatments. The restorative treatments aim to restore the original shape, function, and aesthetic of the tooth to ensure the physiological integrity of the teeth and their harmonious unity with the surrounding hard and soft tissues.
The Department of the Conservative Dentistry (previous title) initiated teaching back in 1959. At our clinic, as an educational institution, treatment is provided by dental scholars as part of clinical practice under the supervision of dental professionals. This subject is conducted in three languages and includes the following topics: pre-clinical dentistry, preventive dentistry, clinical restorative dentistry, and clinical endodontics. Students will gain knowledge related to the specialties mentioned above through nine semesters, including lectures and clinical practices. Furthermore, our department plays an active role in theoretical and practical training during specialization for graduated dental professionals.
The Department of the Restorative Dentistry and Endodontics offers up-to-date, evidence-based care in all restorative, preventive dentistry and endodontic areas. Patients are treated in modern rooms with equipment that complies with the latest treatment principles. We have several research groups investigating the forensic aspects of the oral cavity and blood circulation of the oral tissues. Likewise, we analyze the effect of different dental substances on the blood supply of the pulp and gingiva, the role of fluorides in caries and erosion prevention, etc. We use and study the newest treatment methods and techniques in endodontics (e.g., endodontic microsurgery, mechanical root canal instrumentation).
Examinations on patients are performed at our clinic; meanwhile, the experimental research is carried out at other university institutes cooperating with the Department of Restorative Dentistry and Endodontics (such as Department of Anatomy, Department of Periodontology, Department of Oral Biology).
