A closer look at our caries teeth

Caries present a common and demanding challenge in dentistry, necessitating ongoing commitment to prevention and treatment. The specific approach depends on the extent of damage and the unique needs of each patient, emphasising the essential role of skilled professionals in addressing and rectifying these issues.

At One Dental, we are your trusted Australian-owned supplier of dental education products. Our caries teeth offer a truly lifelike training experience, allowing students to hone their skills. Let’s take a closer look.

Understanding caries teeth

Dental caries, commonly referred to as cavities, are characterised by the decay of tooth enamel and underlying structures. They result from bacteria feeding on sugars and producing acid that erodes tooth enamel, leading to the formation of small cavities. Without timely treatment, caries can progress, causing pain and complications.

For caries prevention, maintaining excellent oral hygiene, including regular brushing and flossing, and minimising sugar consumption is key. Routine dental checkups play a vital role in early detection and overall oral health. In their initial stages, dentists can address cavities using fillings, crowns or other non-invasive techniques. The approach to caries removal may vary for paediatric and adult patients, as children may require more gentle, child-friendly methods.

Symptoms of caries include toothache, sensitivity to hot and cold foods or drinks, visible holes or dark spots on the teeth and discomfort while chewing.

Left untreated, dental caries can lead to more severe issues, including pain, tooth sensitivity and potential infections. It’s essential to address cavities promptly to prevent complications and maintain healthy teeth and gums.

One Dental’s amazing caries teeth

Our caries teeth offer ideal aesthetics, featuring scoopable caries, a translucent enamel layer, open cut or sealed carious lesions and matching X-rays. The translucent layer provides realistic shadowing of the caries, simulating tooth decay effectively. Available in various forms for both adult and paediatric dentitions, these teeth include a darkened caries layer beneath the simulated translucent enamel layer, offering a cutting characteristic similar to real caries.

You can remove caries using either high or low speed, and they’re excavatable with a textural difference. The dentinoenamel junction (DEJ) is consistently visible throughout the teeth. After creating the cavity, you can use standard materials for tooth restoration.

To ensure standardisation and meet your program specifications, One Dental can customise our caries teeth.

Educational institutions that stock our range can access matching X-rays for Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). This unique service from One Dental enables students to align their preparations with the X-ray and caries teeth for a comprehensive simulated learning experience.

The need for realism in education

Dentistry is an art that plays a vital role in our overall health and wellbeing. However, mastering the necessary skills in dentistry requires intense training. Training with lifelike practice equipment is essential for dental students for a range of reasons, including skill development and confidence building.

Dental students need hands-on experience in a controlled environment prior to real patient interactions. Realistic training is the closest approximation to working with actual patients and enhances their readiness for real-world scenarios. It boosts student confidence, knowing that mistakes won't cause harm, and is invaluable in the transition from simulation to clinical care.
