PLACEMENT AND USE OF SNAP-ON SMILE

What is Snap-on Smile?

Snap-on smile is a dental aesthetic treatment that is characterized by being removable. It is made up of a very thin and resistant resin case that is totally customized to fit your mouth, as well as being resistant. It is placed over the teeth to change their shape and appearance on a temporary basis and can be removed and inserted anytime you need it.

This technique modifies the appearance of the smile immediately and is very useful in situations in which you need to show off your smile in public, whether at events, talks, conferences … It is also one of the most requested and definitive solutions to replace missing teeth while we are placing dental implants or the person is undergoing any other dental treatment. With this treatment, the tooth structure is not altered; it simply fits in and out of the natural teeth of the patient because it is totally reversible. At Asensio Advanced Dentistry, we recommend Snap-on Smile to enjoy your smile temporarily or permanently, as it is the perfect aesthetic solution.

Snap-on Smile procedure

The procedure is virtually painless. In the first consultation, the dentist makes an impression of the teeth, without anesthesia, which is sent directly to the laboratory. The mold is filled with plaster and then digitized in 3D on a computer.

After this process, the mold is designed with its respective corrections in a digital program and then sent to a 3D printer. The impression is obtained and is taken to a plaster mold, called a muffle, to be injected at high pressures into its material and final color. Finally, the plaster mold is removed for final adjustments and polishing.

In the second consultation, the prosthesis is placed on the patient, and on some occasions, adjustments will be made outside the mouth if necessary.

What are the uses of the Snap-on Smile in dental aesthetics?

– In teeth that present dental stains or tooth color alterations

– By being able to make changes in the shape of the teeth, snap-on smile can be used in those teeth that have an anomaly in shape and that affect multiple anterior teeth, and also, in which there is a dental misalignment.

– In teeth with loss of tooth structure

– In cases where there are dental absences, the Snap-on Smile improves the aesthetics of the patient.

– Often used as an alternative to removable prostheses, but without palate or hooks

CORRECT DENTAL HYGIENE FOR SENSITIVE GUMS

After undergoing dental cleaning treatments, especially in deep dental cleanings, it will be normal for tooth sensitivity to increase. Over time, this feeling diminishes and you will find your teeth and gums much healthier than before.

Swollen, tender, or bleeding gums will gradually improve over time as long as you brush your teeth carefully and consistently. However, in most patients, the general discomfort due to dental cleaning disappears in a day or two.

Tooth sensitivity is more difficult to avoid on a day-to-day basis, especially when eating or drinking hot or cold foods, as well as biting and brushing your teeth.

HYGIENE TIPS FOR SENSITIVE GUMS

– Carry out a complete brushing of about 2-3 minutes to remove all the accumulated tartar with up and down and circular movements. The type of brush is important.

– Gently massage the gum with the brush while cleaning it.

– It is advisable to use a good quality soft toothbrush and brush gently, both teeth and gums, to avoid the accumulation of bacterial plaque. It is also recommended not to chew gum so that tartar does not accumulate on the gums.

– Use of irrigators and dental floss is recommended in patients with problematic gums since they manage to remove tartar from those corners that the brush cannot reach.

– Chlorhexidine mouthwashes are very beneficial in the hygiene of sensitive gums as it provides an aseptic action.

– In addition, we can combat gingivitis with food, reinforcing our diet with a good dose of vitamin C, which helps to repair damaged gum tissues.

DENTAL DISEASES. PERIODONTITIS AND ITS OTHER SYMPTOMS

There are two common diseases of the oral cavity or gums after tooth decay. These are gingivitis and periodontal disease, also known as periodontitis or pyorrhea.

You have all the answers with Asensio Advanced Dentistry, a professional team specialized in all areas of dentistry at its dental clinic in Valencia, best country for
dental tourism.

Gingivitis

Gingivitis and periodontitis are inflammatory processes of the gums with a common etiology, mainly of bacterial origin derived from dental plaque. Gingivitis is the initial state that gives rise to periodontal disease and affects the state of the gum without involving the supporting tissues of the tooth itself. This process is reversible and the gingiva regains its natural appearance after taking the correct hygiene measures and carrying out the appropriate treatment.

Periodontitis

However, in periodontitis, there are added factors that influence its appearance and development, such as genetic, environmental, and local among others.

Periodontitis is considered the most serious periodontal disease and it directly affects the holding apparatus of the tooth, attacking the supporting bone that surrounds it, which means that it even leads to tooth loss in the most advanced stages of the disease.

Unlike gingivitis, the destruction produced in the tissues is irreversible, thus favoring a greater accumulation of bacteria and the progression of the disease.

Among the most prominent symptoms, we can identify bleeding, bad breath, the appearance of receding gums, and the appearance of small holes in the teeth; however, the pain is not frequent. Periodontitis also compromises speech, reduces the quality of life, and is a growing burden on the economy

The formation process of periodontitis is slow, is not painful, and occurs mainly between teeth.

The best way to avoid the effects of gingivitis and its subsequent development in dental disease is to put yourself in the hands of our specialized team at Asensio Advanced Dentistry.

SMOKING DURING DENTAL CURETAINING

What is dental curettage?

Dental curettage is a thorough cleaning that accesses areas that cannot be treated in conventional cleanings. In these circumstances, you have to work with a greater level of depth and the sooner it is done, the better.

The dental hygiene specialist applies local anesthesia to gain access to the periodontal pockets. Once the dental area is clean of tartar and bacteria, the root of the tooth is smoothed.

After a dental surgery of this style, it is essential to follow a series of care and precautions to guarantee the success of the intervention. Failing to do so could lead to complications to the point where a new operation has to be performed.

When is it necessary to do a dental curettage?

It is advisable to perform this type of deep cleaning when daily oral cleaning is not enough to eliminate bacterial plaque or tartar. It should also be done as soon as possible to avoid gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis.

Oral Care Tips After Dental Curettage

– It is very important not to smoke for the next 48 hours, and also reduce the doses of tobacco. The gingiva of a smoker patient receives a lower blood and oxygen supply, at the same time that its defense mechanisms against dental plaque bacteria decrease. These harmful bacteria produce further destruction of the set of elements that hold the tooth.

– Brush your teeth normally, gently, and accompanied by the use of dental floss. Then apply the paste for sensitive gums and rub gently on the sensitive tooth, especially at the margin of the gum. It is recommended not to rinse immediately, you have to give it time to take effect.

DO DENTAL IMPLANTS HURT?

When undergoing any dental treatment, pain is one of the main concerns that patients suffer. Thanks to improvements in new technologies, advances in medicine, and dental techniques, going to the dentist becomes something totally different from how we knew it. Now, it is part of a new experience.

One of the great advantages of dental implants spain is that they are not only placed through a painless procedure but also contribute to improving oral health and the appearance of the oral cavity. Dental prostheses do not hurt, neither during their placement and the postoperative period nor with their subsequent use when biting and chewing.

Before starting the intervention, the specialist in charge of the operation will usually administer local anesthesia to the patient. However, there have been cases in which people feel very reluctant to dental surgeries and therefore, at Asensio Advanced Odontology, we also offer an alternative to the application of local anesthesia, which is conscious sedation. This allows patients to feel more relaxed and less nervous before the intervention.

Recovery after dental implant surgery depends on many factors and varies from person to person. For this reason, it is very important to follow the rest and healing indications suggested by the specialized professional of Dr. Asensio’s team once the surgery is finished.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial roots that are created to replace the roots of lost teeth and are capable of integrating to the point of living together in a healthy and totally natural way with the rest of the tissues of the mouth. The crowns or dental prostheses will then settle on these roots, thus completing these artificial teeth.

Implants act like natural teeth, so the patient does not notice the difference and can lead a totally normal life.

DENTAL VENEERS

Dental veneers, also known as dental laminates, allow you to improve the aesthetic appearance of your smile quickly and effectively. It is a very sophisticated prosthesis that is made to protect and improve dental aesthetics.

It consists of placing an acrylic cover on the tooth that mimics its appearance. For this reason, a revision must be carried out beforehand to study the tone, brightness, size, and curvature of the tooth to ensure that it fits with the rest of the pieces and looks as natural as possible. This treatment can be performed on the entire teeth or on a specific tooth.

Currently, this treatment has become very popular in the world of dental treatments, as it is an excellent option to take care of your dental health and obtain the desired aesthetics.

What differentiates dental veneers from other treatments?

  1. Cover the visible part of any tooth (the crown of the tooth)
  2. With the application of innovative adhesive products, they adhere strongly to the original tooth, thus preventing falls.
  3. It is not necessary to carve the natural tooth completely
  4. It is composed of materials of high aesthetic value, having a great resemblance to the original tooth so that it is not noticeable at all. They can be of several types: ceramic, porcelain, or zirconia veneers.
  5. A previous aesthetic study must be carried out to design them according to the dental and facial anatomy of each patient.

How long do dental veneers last?

It is very important to maintain good dental hygiene and avoid unnecessary overloads on our teeth, such as:

  • Biting things extremely harshly,
  • Or by the habit of bruxism or teeth grinding

Advantage

One of the main advantages of dental veneers is that they do not require direct manipulation of our natural teeth. It is a minimally invasive technique that considerably improves our dental aesthetics.

Price of dental veneers

The prices are different depending on the type of dental veneer that each patient needs. You always have to study each case to know exactly what type of veneer will best suit each person. Resin veneers are cheaper and their price is approximately between € 150 – € 200. As for porcelain veneers, their price is usually higher and can cost around € 600.

This type of orthodontics has the peculiarity that it cannot be removed by the patient, as is the case with removable orthodontics, such as Invisalign invisible splints. Commonly known as brackets, these are metal pieces attached to the teeth to maintain the arch that is responsible for moving the teeth.

Moreover, there are fixed orthodontics made of ceramic material to achieve the tone of the tooth itself. When placed on the teeth, the brackets are hardly visible, providing an exquisite and differentiated aesthetic from conventional treatment.

How long does orthodontic treatment last?

In general, the orthodontic treatment varies from 6 to 8 months in the simplest cases and up to 24 to 30 months in the most complicated cases.

The duration of the treatment will depend on many factors that must be taken into account, such as the problem to be treated, the type of appliance, how the appliance is cared for, the speed at which the teeth move …

Benefits of fixed orthodontics

Treating this dental displacement in time helps correct malocclusions, prevent pain in the temporomandibular joint, slow down tooth wear, and solve chewing problems.

What is periodontics, periodontal disease and its treatment?

Periodontics in the dental field treats diseases related to the periodontium, that is, those pathologies that affect the gums, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and periodontal cement.
Among the main periodontal diseases are gingivitis and periodontitis.

• Gingivitis: This is inflammation and bleeding of the gums. It may not cause discomfort at first, but as it progresses, it causes redness and swelling of the gums and leads to tooth sensitivity, as well as occasional or chronic bleeding when brushing.
• Periodontitis: this is the destruction of the bone that supports the teeth. It is the pathology derived from gingivitis by not having treated it in time.

These types of diseases are caused by the formation of bacterial plaque that attack the gums and the bone that supports the teeth (in the case of periodontitis). Factors such as tobacco or stress help to further develop these diseases.
The symptoms that can give us clues that we suffer from periodontal disease are:

• Bad smell in the mouth: it is mainly due to the waste from the metabolism of tartar and bacterial plaque.
• Displacement of the teeth: it is produced by the weakening of the supporting tissue of the gum.
• Longer teeth: produced by the reduction of the gum.
• Mobility of the teeth: this can lead to the loss of the tooth.
• Swelling and bleeding in the gum area.

Treatment for periodontal disease will depend on the stage you are in. The dentist will be in charge of evaluating and drawing up the treatment plan for our mouth. If the disease is in an early stage, the first step will be to perform a deep tooth cleaning or curettage. This cleaning consists of scraping the tooth roots with instruments called curettes. With this procedure, the tartar accumulated on the surfaces near the gums is removed and the teeth are free of impurities. The treatment will be complemented with the indications and medical prescription of the dentist.
In the event that the pathology is in a more advanced stage, surgery will be carried out to perform a much deeper cleaning and evaluate the state of the bone that supports the tooth.

Finally, we report that in our dental clinic we follow the prevention and safety measures against COVID-19. We will be happy to solve all your questions and help you in any way possible in your safe dental clinic in Valencia, so that you can show your best smile without any concern and you can count on your trusted dental clinic in Valencia.
