Diagnostics

Successful dental treatment is based on accurate diagnosis.

This is greatly aided by 3D Imaging System Vatech Pax-i 3D Smart CBCT. Thanks to its “Low Dose” system, we can fully assess the condition of your teeth and jawbones with the lowest possible radiation exposure, so that no problems remain hidden.
With one scan only you can have a CBCT and one panoramic X-ray scan, thereby protecting your body from unnecessary radiation exposure. This said, we can set up a comprehensive, personalised treatment planning.

Dental Hygiene Treatment

An easy way to avoid dental problems is to have deposits and tartar regularly removed from your teeth. Ideally, this should be done every six months, so the chances of major dental problems are very low, as your dentist can monitor the current condition of your teeth.

How does tartar and discoloration form on teeth?
Plaque is a build-up of bacteria that is permanently stuck to the tooth surface. This deposit can only be removed from teeth by a regular and a very thorough brushing, and still, the plaque remains often invisible to the naked eye. Plaque often settles below the visible surface of the tooth. Normally, gums are tightly adhered to the tooth, but over time this can change by forming a gap between the tooth and the gums, letting plaque get trapped and cause an inflammatory condition. Tartar is a plaque that has accumulated and calcified, causing gingivitis over time. The gums lose their healthy pale pink color to become swollen and reddish. This condition often leads to the development of gingivitis. Unfortunately, neither deposits, discoloration, nor tartar can be completely removed at home, but your dentist or dental hygienist can help you with these problems to be prevented.

How can oral hygiene treatments prevent dental problems?
Oral hygiene treatment is a cost-effective and time-saving dental treatment, but it can also prevent you from developing more serious and difficult-to-remedy dental problems. In half an hour, your dental hygienist or dentist will painlessly remove brownish discoloration, plaque, and tartar from your teeth. In the case of neglected teeth, this dental hygiene treatment can be as good as tooth whitening, as your teeth regain their natural color.

In our dental office you have the opportunity to benefit from a professional oral hygiene programme. This involves thoroughly removing the tartar from above and below the gums with an ultrasonic scaler, followed by a special Air Flow treatment. This means that a mixture of air, water and a very fine powder of bicarbonate is blown onto the surface of the teeth. The powder has a whitening, cleaning, and disinfecting effect, which means it makes the surface of the teeth smooth and perfectly even. This keeps the tooth cleaner for longer, as plaque and tartar are then harder to adhere to. To finish the treatment, a hyaluronic acid moisturising cream is applied to the gums after they have been completely cleaned of tartar, restoring their healthy firmness and elasticity. One of the ingredients in the cream, hyaluronic acid, is an antioxidant commonly used in cosmetics, known mainly for its anti-ageing properties.

If, after this treatment, you are still not satisfied with the color of your teeth, we recommend tooth whitening giving you an additional significant aesthetic result (see Section on whitening treatment).



Why should you have regular oral hygiene treatment?

  • Calculus removal (or scaling) will keep your teeth healthy and intact for the long term.
  • Dental scaling can prevent the development of painful dental diseases, such as the widespread periodontal disease.
  • Scaling will make your teeth whiter and naturally brighter again.
Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)

What is biofilm?

Biofilm is the term used for the thin, invisible layer of bacteria that adheres to the surface of teeth, fillings, dental restorations, and implants. It's responsible for the development of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and inflammation around implants. Over time, biofilm mineralizes due to minerals released from saliva, leading to the formation of tartar.

What can biofilm cause?
  • Bad breath
  • Tooth decay
  • Gum bleeding
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth
  • Tooth loss
  • Implant loss


What is the essence of Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT)?
This revolutionary, multi-step treatment utilizes the most advanced form of dental cleaning. It is more effective than traditional tartar removal. Thanks to the NO PAIN technology of the specialized device, the treatment is virtually painless: even those who fear traditional tartar removal due to pain during the procedure experience minimal discomfort.

When is it recommended?

For prevention of tooth decay
Biofilm is rarely noticeable to the naked eye and can settle in places unreachable by a toothbrush or traditional dental polisher. With biofilm therapy, effective cleaning can be performed in interdental spaces or in small crevices on teeth, preventing cavities and enabling the earliest detection of incipient decay.

For dental restorations
It perfectly cleans the surface of crowns, bridges, and veneers without damaging them. With this, the lifespan of dental restorations significantly increases, and replacement may only become necessary after a longer period of time.

For orthodontic treatment
During fixed orthodontic appliance wear, home cleaning of teeth becomes significantly more difficult. With guided biofilm therapy, we remove deposits around the brackets and clean areas difficult to reach due to the orthodontic appliance, such as tartar buildup.

For periodontal disease
In cases of gum recession, periodontitis, deep pocket cleaning can be performed without the need for curettage or surgery, thus reducing the burden on the patient.

After dental implant placement
Cleaning implants is as important as cleaning natural teeth. With GBT technology, the risk of inflammation around the implant can be prevented, and even already existing pockets around the implant can be cleaned effectively, without endangering the integrity of the artificial root.

Bright white teeth, healthy oral hygiene
Biofilm therapy is capable of removing deposits from the gums and tongue, resulting in healthier and cleaner mucous membranes. It is successfully used to remove discoloration from smoking or coffee consumption. After this special tartar removal, you will have clean, fresh breath, whiter teeth, and a healthier oral flora.

What are the steps of guided biofilm therapy?

  • Assesment: assessment of the condition of teeth, mucosa, gums, implants, and dental restorations, i.e., a comprehensive examination of the entire oral cavity.
    After detecting any problems, a clearer picture is obtained following treatment, allowing the dental hygienist to refer to the appropriate specialist if necessary, who can then create a precise treatment plan.
  • Disclose, make biofilm visible: A dark purple indicator material is applied to the teeth, which stains the biofilm layer, thus revealing the dental plaque not visible to the naked eye.
  • Motivate: The stained biofilm shows our patients where they need to pay more attention to their oral hygiene. Our dental hygienist helps in mastering proper tooth brushing and maintaining appropriate oral hygiene at home.
  • Airflow: The Airflow procedure is used to remove biofilm, discoloration, and immature tartar from the natural teeth as well as the surfaces of implants, dental restorations, or orthodontic appliances. It cleans and polishes the surface above the gumline with a mixture of high-pressure small particle size special powder and heated purified water, all completely painless.
  • Perioflow: Effectively removes biofilm from deeper gum pockets or around implants using an even smaller particle size powder-water mixture.
  • Piezon: Larger, mature tartar removal is done with the No-pain technology Piezon tip. This tartar removal is no longer associated with any discomfort, as the PIEZON head only operates when it encounters tartar, thus avoiding unnecessary contact with intact tooth surfaces and unnecessary pain. It can be used above and below the gum line.
  • Check: Check if every area has been adequately cleaned, if all tartar has been completely removed.
  • Recall: Schedule individually when it is necessary to come for a follow-up examination to prevent the development of serious dental problems. It is recommended every 6 months on average.

The 5 most important advantages of Biofilm therapy

  • Shorter treatment
    Thanks to the special machine, the treatment time is much shorter than what we are used to with traditional tartar removal.
  • No pain technology – tartar removal is finally truly painless
    Thanks to Piezon technology, the treatment is gentle, providing complete painlessness, and even minimizes discomfort in case of gingival abrasion.
  • Minimally invasive – comfortable tartar removal
    It removes biofilm without abrasion or rough friction, even from interdental spaces, allowing us to preserve our natural teeth, the brilliance and integrity of dental restorations, or to protect our implants for as long as possible.
  • 100% effectiveness
    While ultrasonic tartar removal has an efficiency rate of 85%, guided biofilm therapy has achieved 100% effectiveness thanks to the visualization of biofilm.
  • A real experience
    In addition to the many arguments in favor of the treatment, the experience of our patients is also very important. Those who have tried this truly comfortable, painless, and fast treatment no longer want the old way. The dental spa experience is actually a new type of wellness experience because you really feel better afterwards.
Treatment of Periodontal Disease

How do we recognize periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease may start with symptoms that are initially thought to be ‘ordinary’ , such as bleeding gums and sensitive gums, which are mainly experienced when brushing, eating, or using dental floss. A similar discomfort can be caused by external damage (for example, if you scrape the gums with your toothbrush), but it's well worth being careful and monitor the improvement. Otherwise, gingivitis may be recognised by sore, red, or darkened gums, but bad breath, receding gums and moving teeth are also tell-tale signs of periodontal disease.

The initial phase: Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums)
Inadequate oral hygiene is caused by bacteria that build up in plaque on the neck of tooth. It almost always develops in the absence of regular scaling and professional tooth cleaning. Crowns and fillings that do not close properly or old crowns and seals with protruding edges can also cause problem.

Treatment:
Prevention: learning personalised oral hygiene with the help of a dental hygienist.

Treatment:

  • dental scaling
  • polishing, sandblasting
  • correction and replacement of crowns and fillings with protruding edges

If gingival inflammation is not treated in time, periodontal disease will develop in most cases.

Periodontitis

It is an inflammation of the tissues surrounding the dental root, leading to the loss of tooth and bone tissue if left untreated. This inflammation develops when the balance between the bacteria breeding in the mouth and the body's immune system is upset. No two cases are the same because we are genetically coded differently and have different life circumstances. The inflammation of the connective tissue of the dental root is a focal disease and can be transmitted by droplet infection even to family members!

It may be caused by poor oral hygiene, genetic predisposition, smoking, stressful lifestyle (immune system), side effects of medication (e.g., antihypertensives, antiepileptics, immunosuppressants). It can also develop in association with common diseases such as hormonal changes (puberty, pregnancy, post menopause, diabetes), immune deficiency syndromes (AIDS) and haematological diseases.

Treatment:
Conservative: Removal of inflammatory factors from all dental surfaces under local anaesthesia.

Periodontal pocket therapy with laser: The laser can be used to treat inflamed gum tissue painlessly and effectively. The treatment kills the pathogens in the pouches. In many cases, the gums can be reattached tightly to the dental neck, pockets can be eliminated, and loose teeth can be fixed.

Surgical intervention: These interventions are not always necessary but are aimed at regenerative restoration of the periodontium with the help of materials, such as synthetics, collagen membranes, regeneration-stimulating gel-like materials.

Cosmetic procedures — Gingivoplasty:

  • Crown lengthening: a procedure to correct the aesthetic appearance of teeth and make the smile even more beautiful
  • Gingival retraction – treatment of gingival recession: The gums are replaced, the stripped dental neck is covered with its own tissue and auxiliary material, providing a more aesthetic and long-term protection for the teeth.

Aesthetic Fillings

What do you need to know about aesthetic fillings?

When we eat, food particles stick to the surface of our teeth, resulting in plaque. Bacteria colonise the plaque and start to decompose food residues. This produces acids that have a harmful effect on tooth enamel. This leads to tooth decay, the most effective treatment for which is the use of aesthetic fillings. This filling is called aesthetic because it is made of a special composite material that matches the color and shape of your existing teeth perfectly, making it virtually invisible to the outside eye.

When might you need an aesthetic filling?

  • In case of tooth decay
  • When replacing existing amalgam fillings with aesthetic fillings
  • In case of discoloration of your teeth
  • In case of aesthetic treatment of chipped teeth
  • If a small piece of your tooth has broken off

What are the benefits of aesthetic fillings for you?

  • Appearance is highly aesthetic and blends in with your surroundings, so your friends and acquaintances won't even notice you have a filling
  • Ready in a short time and you can enjoy the benefits as soon as you get out of the dentist's chair
  • Friendly to your body as it does not contain metals and other toxic substances, so it will not cause an allergic reaction
  • Preparation thanks to modern preparation techniques result inminimal loss of tooth substance
  • Durable, lasting for decades (with good oral hygiene and regular dental check-ups)
  • Solid and strong, and can therefore be loaded with almost no restrictions

There are huge differences in price and quality of dental fillings. In our practice, we use only the strongest, finest, and most durable quality fillings.

Root-canal Treatment

What do you need to know about root-canal treatment?

Root-canal treatment is designed to save your existing teeth from being pulled out. When tooth decay reaches the root-canal, changes occur in the tooth lining that can be reversible in simple cases but cause irreversible damage in more severe cases. In these cases, root-canal treatment is necessary. Our teeth can have one, two, three, four or even more root-canals. The success of the root-canal treatment is greatly influenced by finding all the root-canals in the tooth.

The first step in root-canal Treatment is to explore, locate and dilate the root-canals. This cleans the root-canal. The widened and cleaned canals are then filled with a special root filling material.

The second step is to place an aesthetic filling, inlay or crown on the root-canal tooth to make it not only functionally perfect, but also aesthetically pleasing.

Why is it safer for you to have your root-canal treatment in our practice?

An excellent tool for precision work - an apex locator with endo motor for durability of root-canal treatments (VDW Gold Reciproc). Root-canal treatment can only lead to the expected result, i.e., the healing of the tooth, if the root-canal is cleaned to the right length and quality. To help determine the length of the root-canal, a so-called apex locator is used. This tool gives your doctor a much more accurate picture of the actual length of the root-canal than an X-ray. Endomotor machining results in a much cleaner, more uniform root-canal. Endomotor and apex locator root fillings will therefore be more accurate and durable.

Laser assisted root-canal treatment

With the help of the diode laser used in our practice, we can radically reduce the number of germs in heavily infected root-canals and stimulate the healing of root-canal lesions that have already developed. This procedure greatly reduces the subsequent complications of root-canal Treatment.

Isolation in this case is for your safety – coffer-dam isolation for root-canal treatments
One of the most critical aspects of the dental intervention is keeping the treatment area dry, i.e. ensuring a saliva-free environment throughout the root-canal treatment. This can no longer be achieved without compromising on quality by using traditional cotton rolls. Therefore we use coffer-dam isolation in our practices. This procedure is nothing more than provides an isolated environment for the entire duration of the treatment using a special flexible rubber device. Isolation with a coffer-dam provides a perfect saliva and humidity-free working area for your doctor. By using the device, root-canal treatments will have a higher success rate and will be more durable.

Inlays

What do you need to know about inlays or onlays? Inlays or onlays are a type of special, large, aesthetic filling. The difference compared to the traditional solution is that these are not made by the dentist in the dental practice, but in the dental laboratory using precision technology based on an impression. Inlays are most used for caries of larger, gingiva-reaching, small and large molars.

Inlays can be made of:

  • Porcelain, where the missing tooth is replaced by an all-porcelain inlay
  • Composite material, which is plastic alloyed with porcelain
  • Gold, which may be entirely gold or gold-fired tooth-colored porcelain

In which cases might you need an inlay or onlay?

  • For larger crown gaps where a simple aesthetic filling would no longer be a safe solution
  • If more than half of the occusal surface of the tooth is missing
  • When replacing existing amalgam fillings, if the gap to be filled exceeds the safe size of the aesthetic filling
  • If you have a chipped tooth that cannot be corrected with a filling

What are the benefits of inlays for you?

  • Aesthetic and natural-looking appearance, despite its larger size it fits perfectly into the existing tooth environment
  • Manufactured in a dental laboratory with high-precision technology, guaranteeing a precise fit and edge seal
  • All three materials are environmentally friendly, as neither porcelain, nor composite material or gold contains toxic or allergenic ingredients
  • Provides a long-lasting solution thanks to its precise fit and solid base material
  • Can be loaded without any restrictions just like natural teeth
  • Thanks to its precision manufacturing technology, it protects the treated tooth better than any aesthetic fillings

What to do if you also need inlays and onlays?
Whether your dental problem can be safely treated with aesthetic fillings or possibly inlays (and onlays) will only be known after a personal medical examination. The easiest way to have this examination is to visit the Ráday32 DentalCentrum. The consultation is free of charge, so there is no cost to you.

Post/Core Abutment

What do you need to know about the post/core abutment?

If caries have damaged a large part of the crown of the tooth, neither aesthetic fillings nor crowns can be used to replace it with great safety, because the root needs to be strengthened. This is the purpose of the post/core abutment. The goal in this case is to rebuild the tooth using a post and core made in the root. A crown can then be safely installed on this surface to restore the original shape and anatomical function of the tooth. Prior to the post/core abutment, a tooth that was previously not subject to root-canal treatment should always be root-treated. After the root filling is properly formed, the next step is to prepare the post’s location and then glue it in place.

What material can the post, and core be made of?

  • Tooth-colored fibreglass root-canal for the treatment of small to moderately damaged teeth
  • Factory-made metal post, used for crowns on a metal frame
  • Cast metal core made by a dental laboratory technician to restore badly damaged teeth
  • Zirconia cores for severe tooth material deficiency, especially in the interior teeth area, to meet priority aesthetic needs

What are the advantages of the post/core abutment for you?

  • The most important advantage of the post/core abutment is that the treated tooth can be saved and does not need to be extracted and replaced by a tooth implant
  • The treated tooth will regain stability and become load bearing again, just like your own teeth

What do you need to do if you need a post/core abutment?
Only a thorough dental examination can tell you if a post/core abutment is really the solution to your dental problem. For you, the most important thing is not to lose your tooth, and to regain its anatomical function (chewing ability) and aesthetic appearance. This is the problem we want to take care of, by way of a post/core abutment at the Ráday32 DentalCentrum, if necessary.

Crowns and Bridges (metal and non-metallic)

Metal ceramic crowns and bridges - Hungary's most popular dental prosthesis

Metal-ceramic crowns owe their popularity to the fact that they have proven their reliability for decades. The metal framework that provides the strength of the dental prosthesis is made by the dental laboratory based on impressions taken from your prepared teeth. Once the frame is complete, the ceramic crown without a supporting metal substructure is fired on in a color to match your existing teeth. The metal frame material can be a nickel-free cobalt-chromium or gold-platinum alloy, or even unalloyed gold. In the laser sintering process, the bridge frame is built layer by layer by the sintering machine using a laser beam. Thanks to the microstructure of the surface and reduced oxidation, the bonding of the ceramic to the metal frame will be optimal. Moreover, the density of the material during the process is close to 100%, resulting in the highest tensile strength values. Metal-ceramic crowns are a lasting solution to a wide range of dental problems:

  • Suitable for treating large cavities when an aesthetic filling or inlay is no longer a safe solution for you
  • Restores your healthy chewing ability
  • Replace missing teeth if you are unable to have dental implants

Metal-ceramic crowns are still very popular among our patients, as they are an excellent and cost-saving solution among dental prosthesis. But it also has undeniable positive qualities:

  • Solid and durable dental prosthesis
  • Restores chewing ability in a close-to-natural way
  • Ready in a short time period and you can enjoy all the benefits within a week

But if aesthetics is of paramount importance to you, ceramic crowns on a metal frame are not the ideal solution. Their appearance is not as aesthetic and lifelike as that of metal-free zirconia crowns. Being less translucent, the metal frame gives a dull dark tint to the tooth. The edges of the crown may show a grey stripe over the years.

In addition, metal-ceramic crowns are not recommended for you if you suffer from any metal allergies. It is possible that a metal-ceramic crown offers the best solution for your dental problem. However, you will only find out if you visit our clinic for a free consultation, where our trained specialists will give you detailed information about the options available to you.


Zircon-ceramic crowns and bridges - CAD/CAM technology - thousandths of a millimetre precision for lifelike results
If your dental problem is no longer solved by a filling or an inlay because the damaged part of the tooth is too large, you need a crown. If you also have edentulism (toothlessness), we recommend a fixed partial denture. The crowns can be made on a cost-saving metal frame or on a lifelike, aesthetic zirconia frame with a white translucent finish similar to natural teeth. Both crowns are covered with a white (tooth-colored) ceramic veneer. This gives the tooth its final shape and color.

However, there are significant differences in appearance between the two types of crowns. Zircon-ceramic crowns and bridges have many positive features that you may also find valuable, so get to know them:

Completely hypoallergenic
Allergies to metals are common nowadays. If you have a metal allergy or simply don't want any metal in your body, a zirconia crown is the solution.

White, aesthetic, lifelike and unnoticeable
Thanks to the special tooth-colored zirconia material, these dental prostheses also meet very high aesthetic demands. Zirconia crowns and bridges blend in imperceptibly with your existing teeth, so that it is not at all visible that you have dental prosthesis. The greyish tint and metallic edge stripe that are typical of metal-ceramic crowns cannot occur with zirconia crowns. Instead, a naturally translucent, vivid white color zircon-ceramic dental prosthesis is what we will make for you in our practice.

They are accurate and comfortable, made with CAD/CAM technology (designed using computer software and produced on computer-controlled equipment)

When making zirconia-ceramic crowns and bridges, the dental laboratory does not cast the framework of your dental prosthesis in metal but produces it from a special material called zirconia using a so-called CAD/CAM technology. The essence of this technology is to be accurate to a degree that is not perceptible to the human senses. In the dental laboratory, a special laser scanning device is used to scan an impression of your prepared teeth and computer software is used to design the framework for your personalised dental prosthesis. The so-designed zircon frame is followed by a computer-controlled preparation thereby eliminating human error from the whole process.

The frame, made by a dental laboratory, is tested by your dentist to ensure that it meets all your requirements and only then is the porcelain veneer applied to give your zirconia dental prosthesis the final look that will harmonise with your existing teeth.

Crowns based on a zirconium frame offer an aesthetic and durable solution to a wide range of dental problems. Whether this is true for you can only be determined through a personal consultation where we can examine you. The easiest way to do this is with a free consultation.

Ceramic Veneers

Ceramic veneers can make your smile beautiful in a week
Ceramic veneers offer you a unique opportunity to completely renew and rejuvenate your smile, both aesthetically and functionally, in just one week. But there's even better news: ceramic veneers are a very gentle dental procedure that involves significantly less tooth loss than crowns and is almost completely painless.

What do you need to know about ceramic veneers?
The ceramic veneer is a contact lens-thin plate that is bonded to the lip of the tooth. This solid and loadable aesthetic plate gives your teeth a renewed and beautified look and a snow-white but natural smile.

What dental problems are ceramic veneers ideal for successfully treating?

Ceramic veneers are now used to treat a wide range of dental problems all over the world, including Hungary:

  • The most common case is when the patient simply longs for a nicer smile, but does not want to spend too much time doing it, nor suffer too much discomfort to achieve it
  • Ceramic veneers are also an excellent solution if you are not happy with the shape of your teeth and want to change this (for example, if your teeth are not aligned properly but you do not want to undergo lengthy orthodontic treatment)
  • If tooth whitening does not provide the whiteness you dreamed of, ceramic veneers will certainly solve that problem too
  • If teeth that are worn or chipped, you do not necessarily need to have the teeth ground down to make crowns, but can simply have ceramic veneers bonded to them after a minimal preparation
  • There is discoloration caused by medicines that cannot be whitened by whitening procedures, for which ceramic veneers are the simplest solution
  • If there is an excessive gap between the front teeth, it can be easily corrected with ceramic veneers, resulting in the disappearance of the gaps

What should you do if you want to beautify your smile with ceramic veneers?
This state-of-the-art solution is now available, easy to use and affordable for everyone. However, it is not the solution to every dental problem. Whether ceramic veneers can be successfully applied in your case can only be determined in a personal consultation with our trained aesthetic specialists. This consultation is completely free of charge for you.
