The preservation of your teeth is important to us!
No replacement is as good as your own teeth! For this reason, your dentist CASA DENTALIS attaches great importance to preserving your own teeth in the long term. By tooth preservation we mean all measures that serve the purpose of retaining your natural teeth and not replacing them with an artificial product.
In our Berlin dental practices in Lichterfelde, Wilmersdorf and Steglitz-Zehlendorf, we use state-of-the-art technology and exclusively high-quality materials to guarantee our patients optimum tolerability, optical perfection and long durability.
Your satisfaction is our motivation. Your experienced CASA DENTALIS dentist will be happy to advise you in detail at any time about the options available to you for preserving your teeth in order to jointly find an optimal medical solution that fully meets your wishes and expectations.
When is tooth preservation necessary?
A dental disease is an impairment of the tooth structure (enamel, dentin (obsolete), root cement) or the periodontium.
Dental diseases are not only an aesthetic problem, in most cases they also lead to severe toothache and tooth damage. More and more studies show that dental diseases also have effects on the general health of our body that should not be underestimated. This is another reason why dental preservation is an important area of dentistry.
How do dental diseases affect health?
Effects of dental diseases on our health:
- Caries is associated with digestive problems, diabetes, heart and circulatory diseases
- Periodontitis is a trigger of cardiovascular diseases, increased risk of stroke, diabetes, premature and miscarriage, respiratory diseases, rheumatism, diabetes, lung diseases.
- Functional diseases such as headache and facial pain, migraine, tinnitus
- Compatibility of dental materials and general allergies
How does health affect our teeth?
Diseases can not only be the result of a dental problem, but also the cause. For example, many diabetics suffer from gingivitis. Tell your CASA DENTALIS dentist if you have any pre-existing conditions, because this is the only way we can offer you and your teeth the optimum, individual care you need and initiate the necessary methods of tooth preservation.
Methods of tooth preservation
What does your dental practice in Berlin, CASA DENTALIS, offer for tooth preservation?
At CASA DENTALIS, your dentist in Berlin, we offer you a wide range of dental services for tooth preservation. These include, but are not limited to
- amalgam drainage
- restorative dentistry (e.g. fillings)
For a long time amalgam was the most popular material for tooth preservation and is still known as the best investigated filling material in dentistry. A disadvantage is the aesthetics of this filling material, which is why many patients wish to have their fillings replaced with tooth-coloured materials.
In our dental practice CASA DENTALIS in Berlin Lichterfelde we fulfil this wish. Amalgam removal consists of removing the material under a protective rubber (rubber dam) and then treating the defect, depending on its size, with tooth-coloured composite fillings or inlays/onlays.
What are dental fillings?
If teeth are damaged, for example by caries, the holes must be closed in order to protect the tooth and the underlying nerve. CASA DENTALIS uses fillings for smaller defects.
Tooth fillings are soft filling materials which are introduced into the tooth by your dentist from Berlin and harden later. If the defect is larger, high-quality inlays or onlays from our Berlin dental laboratory are used. In order to prevent further deterioration of the tooth defect, it is important to have it treated as quickly as possible by your dentist of choice.
What types of fillings are used at CASA DENTALIS?
At CASA DENTALIS we use the following fillings:
- plastic fillings
- Ceramics / -inlays / -onlays / -overlays
- Gold Inlays
The type of filling depends on the condition of the teeth, the size of the hole, any allergies, but also on financial aspects. Our dentists at CASA DENTALIS will be happy to take the time for you to find a solution that will make you feel comfortable in the long term.
How is a dental filling performed?
Dental fillings are carried out regularly by your dentist in the CASA DENTALIS dental centres. As a result, our patients benefit from the many years of experience of our doctors.
At CASA DENTALIS, a dental filling is carried out as follows:
- Thorough cleaning of the affected area
- Infested tooth area is removed with the drill bit
- Dental area is disinfected

What does endodontics mean?
Endodontics is the root canal treatment for tooth preservation. It is used when the nerve of a tooth (pulp) is inflamed or dead. Thanks to the latest technology, our dentists in Berlin at CASA DENTALIS are also able to save massively damaged and dead teeth.
What causes root inflammation?
A pulp disease can have a variety of causes, such as an infection of the tooth pockets, root cracks or a caries infection. As part of the root canal treatment, the inflamed tissue is removed by your dentist and the root canal is then filled. Such a procedure is a time-consuming and costly treatment, but also promises a very high chance of success.
How does a root canal treatment work?
- At the beginning, your dentist from Berlin takes digital x-rays to measure the root canals in order to guarantee optimal cleaning at a later date.
- A suitcase dam (arched clamp with a clamping rubber) is then laid to protect the tooth from the influx of bacteria through saliva and to prevent the swallowing of disinfectants.
- To allow access to the root canal, the tooth is drilled out and the infected tissue is removed.
- The root canals are then cleaned antibacterially.
- Depending on the severity of the disease, a root canal treatment can be spread over several appointments. If this is the case, your dentist will close the root canal with a temporary filling.
- In the final session, your dentist fills the root canals with a special root filling material and places a crown or filling to rebuild the tooth.
After several months the success of the treatment can be checked by x-rays. With the help of a microscope, your dentist at CASA DENTALIS will be able to find even the tiniest root canals and thus remove the entire painful tissue to enable successful root canal treatment.
On request, all procedures can of course also be performed in all dental practices of CASA DENTALIS in Berlin under anaesthesia or general anaesthesia.
