Bichectomy abroad

What does Bichectomy consist of?

WHAT IS BICHECTOMY?

To know what Bichectomy consists of, we first have to know what the Bichat Bag is. Bichet Bag is an anatomical structure located in the middle and lower region of the face and it has great contour relevance in the cheeks. Thanks to a French anatomist and pathologist Marie Francois Xavier Bichat, it was shown that Bichat Bag was not a gland but a bag of fat that is located under the cheeks, which made it possible to remove the said bag of fat, thereby favoring the appearance of the face. This technique is called Bichetomy.

Bichetomy has become increasingly popular among celebrities. Among the models and actresses who have undergone this cosmetic surgery, we find some popular names such as Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Kim Kardashian, Mila Kunis, Angelina Jolie, and Victoria Beckham. All of them have obtained an amazing change thanks to this surgery.

HOW IS THE BICHECTOMY PERFORMED?

It is a surgical intervention where the Bichat bags are removed. As they are accumulations of fat that give volume to the face and not glands, it is completely safe to carry out this intervention.

During the operation, cuts are made on the inside of the cheeks that can last approximately 40 minutes, so that the same day, the patient would be at home recovering. As the cuts are made on the inside of the cheeks, there are no visible scars on the face.

Candidates for this treatment are those who seek to improve the appearance of their faces, especially those who have a round face shape.

Those people who present enormous facial flaccidity, advanced age, or people who present other contraindications will not be able to undergo this operation. That is why it is advisable to go to a specialist who will assess whether or not the person is suitable to undergo a Bichectomy.

Since the mouth is very prone to bacteria, very careful monitoring is required to see that everything is progressing correctly. To help the mouth recover in an ideal way, it is advisable to adhere to the following recommendations:

After the surgery, the surgeon will place a compression bandage for a few hours. Ice may be placed on the cheeks to help reduce swelling.

Some medications such as anti-inflammatories or antibiotics may be prescribed in order to mitigate the pain once the effects of anesthesia wear off.

The first night, the patient should sleep with their head raised and apply cold compresses for the first week.

The diet indicated by the surgeon must be followed strictly in order to avoid possible problems. If everything progresses correctly, after a few days, the patient will be able to eat soft foods.

In the event of any alarming symptom, such as the swelling not going down or the face being very red, it is advisable to go to the doctor for a check-up.

What are the Prosthetic Abutments for dental implants?

Dental implants are usually the ideal option and one of the most used for people who need to replace a dental piece, or directly do not have one. A dental implant is an artificial root that fuses with the jaw bone to hold a prosthesis that will have the functionality of a natural tooth. Prosthetic accessories are those pieces that serve to join dental implants to their prostheses.

Prosthetic accessories. What types are there?

Let’s point out the types of accessories that we can find:

Healing abutments: Helps the gum tissue around the implant to heal and are placed before the dental prosthesis is made.
Final abutments: Once the gums have healed, the final abutments are placed to join the prosthesis with the implant.
Temporary or provisional abutments: They are placed to cover the entrance of the screw.

The time it takes to heal is usually around 2 to 4 weeks. To ensure that the healing is correct and there is no problem, it will be necessary to follow the surgeon’s advice on the care that we will have to have, the foods that we can eat, and the correct cleaning around the pillars to prevent infections.

Among the most common prosthetic attachment materials are:

-Zirconium
-Titanium
-Molten gold
-Surgical grade stainless steel
-Polyether ether ketone

Among all of them, the element that offers the best combination of resistance and biocompatibility, in addition to being light in weight, is titanium.

FOODS TO PROTECT AND IMPROVE DENTAL HEALTH

In order for our mouth to stay healthy and clean over time, we not only have to brush our teeth after every meal and floss. Diet is an important factor because it also influences oral health and helps maintain strong and healthy teeth.

Just as eating sweets or sugary drinks can affect our oral health, eating a diet lacking in certain nutrients can also provide less resistance to certain oral infections.

The team of specialized professionals at Asensio Odontologia Avanzada, a dental clinic in Spain, recommends 8 foods that help strengthen and provide nutrients to our teeth:

  1. Water. Produces greater salivation. When the body is not well hydrated it saves water and generates less saliva. For this reason, it is recommended to drink between 1.5 and 2 liters of water a day.
  2. Milk and all its derivatives. Milk provides calcium to the teeth, with this element the repair of dental enamel occurs. Cheese strengthens the surface of the tooth and yogurt without sugars is very useful to remineralize the tooth.
  3. Fruits and vegetables. Apples, carrots and celery have a sweeping effect on bacterial plaque. It cleans the teeth and helps the gums not swell. In addition, fruits and vegetables facilitate the elimination of bacterial plaque and food debris adhering to the teeth because they enhance the production of saliva.
  4. Chewing gum with sugar and xylitol. The compound xylitol is a natural sweetener that has important effects against tooth decay and oral bacteria, maintaining optimal oral health. With these products the cleaning of the teeth is favored because they enhance the secretion of saliva.
  5. Foods without color, such as white rice and white meat and fish. Colored foods are characterized by their pigmentation, and this can influence the teeth, causing staining or staining them.
  6. Foods with fiber. Whole grains or legumes also promote saliva production because they require a greater chewing effort
  7. Nuts and seeds. These are foods rich in vitamins and minerals, among which calcium stands out. The most recommended would be almonds, hazelnuts and pistachios (take them natural and without sugar or honey)
  8. Tea is characterized by providing reinforcement for the enamel, acting as fluoride, and also fights bacteria

With the incorporation of these foods to your diet and daily habits, complementing it with exercise and taking care of your mouth, you will obtain great benefits. Don’t forget to brush your teeth after every meal with fluoride toothpaste, floss and visit your trusted Asensio Advanced Dentistry dentist regularly.

MERCURY METALS POISONING

Mercury is a metal that is considered toxic because it generates conditions on the central nervous system, behavioral disturbances as well as kidney, immune, and sexual disorders among others. Currently, several cases of mercury poisoning and embryotoxicity have been detected among dental personnel and the dental sector.

Exposure to inorganic mercury has been confirmed to increase levels of this metal in blood plasma and urine.Currently, the use of this material is prohibited due to the danger and damage it can cause to patients. Allergies and rejections to the metals contained in amalgams are more and more frequent. For this reason, we must be very careful to choose the materials when deciding to rehabilitate our mouth. Since not all persons respond the same way to each stimulus, therefore we at Asensio Advanced Dentistry provide treatments that are metal-free and use the American Association Protocol for the removal of amalgams. From our metal-free dental clinic, we recommend the replacement and removal of amalgam fillings with an exhaustive protocol.
