DENTAL IMPLANTS ABROAD

I have implants… What toothbrush do I use?

One thing to keep in mind when taking care of our dental health is the deep hygiene of our mouth. Brushing your gums is just as important as brushing your teeth.

It is normal for brushing the gums to cause some bleeding. This is because plaque has been stored in them and they become inflamed and tender. Thanks to this process of brushing the gums, little by little, they will be deflated to the point where they will stop bleeding when you brush your teeth.

What type of brush to use?

Manual and electric, both are considered valid brushes for the hygiene of teeth and implants. Each of them has different characteristics to maintain dental hygiene. It is true that electric brushes achieve greater results since they are capable of removing bacterial plaque from the most difficult areas that cannot be achieved with a traditional brush. Those that use an oscillating-rotational movement have been scientifically proven to be the most effective. The main advantage of these electric brushes is that they allow optimal dental hygiene with less effort. Its use is especially indicated for patients with dental implants, braces, and those who suffer from periodontal disease.

What is recommended for the hardness of the bristles is a soft or medium brush. Both the manual brushes and the head of the electric brushes must be changed approximately every three months.

HOW MUCH DOES A FIXED PROSTHESIS COST?

What is a fixed prosthesis?

Fixed dental prostheses are those that remain permanently attached to the patient’s mouth, and therefore cannot be removed. It is not necessary to remove the prosthesis to clean it and it has no drawbacks of leaking food debris.

They do not need to go through a period of adaptation, as with traditional dentures which can be uncomfortable for the first few days when speaking.

There are two types of fixed dental prostheses:

– Fixed prosthesis on teeth: The prosthesis is attached to the healthy teeth of the patient, achieving great support and firmness. The only disadvantage is that you have to damage the teeth and polish them to get the prosthesis to hold properly.

– Fixed prosthesis on dental implants: In this case, it is attached to one or more titanium implants, which act as the root of the tooth. The prosthesis is fastened on them.

Fixed prostheses are used to replace the loss of teeth, providing the patient with a fixed tooth with which he can chew and speak regularly without any discomfort, thus fulfilling the functions of a normal tooth.

What does it consist of?

In our Asensio Advanced Odontology dental clinic, this treatment consists of a professional from our team specialized in dentistry in spain and stomatology placing a custom-made dental piece in the patient’s mouth to fill in the missing piece. The process of placing the prosthesis will depend on its type:

– Fixed prosthesis on teeth: The teeth are carved and worn in width and height, forming what is called a “stump”, so that later, the prosthesis can be fitted on them and achieves a lasting hold. One of the disadvantages is that it is necessary to carve the tooth.

– Fixed prosthesis on dental implants: The prosthesis is fixed on the titanium implant, which acts as a dental root and on which the crown or bridge will be placed.

How much is a fixed prosthesis worth?

Putting in a dental prosthesis is a necessary expense when teeth fall out for different reasons. The price of a fixed prosthesis, in general terms, depends to a great extent on the patient and the treatment they need. Therefore, it is difficult to give a fixed price without taking into account the circumstances. A fixed prosthesis usually ranges from €250, and a fixed denture from €4,500, although this price may vary depending on several factors:

– Material of which it is made

– Number of teeth: The more teeth that are needed to be replaced through a prosthesis, the higher the price.

– Applied technology: The price will vary depending on the techniques that are needed for the installation.

– Provisional prostheses: The need for temporary dentures will also drive up the price.

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.
