Snap on smile abroad

What is Snap-on Smile?

Snap-on Smile is a removable and minimally invasive dental treatment that will help you instantly have a great smile. It is a case made of state-of-the-art dental resin, which has a minimum thickness and is extremely resistant. It is placed directly on our teeth with a complete adaptation, so that it changes the aesthetic appearance of the smile, improving it to make it more beautiful and natural.

It is not necessary to apply anesthesia, nor to carve any of the teeth, nor to apply adhesives, which makes it a comfortable, fast, and aesthetic solution for people who have:

  • Small teeth
  • Teeth that have worn over time
  • Gapped teeth
  • Changes in the color of teeth or even having a missing tooth.

What is the Snap on Smile treatment procedure?

The treatment phases are very simple.

A first visit is made to observe the patient’s case.

Impressions are then taken on the patient’s mouth.

It is sent to a specialized laboratory where the mouth is scanned with the subsequent design of the device in 3D, tailored to the patient, and then going through control of quality.

Later in the clinic, they adapt this device and it is placed in the mouth.

With Snap-on Smile, you will achieve a completely natural appearance in the teeth where only you will know that you are wearing it since it allows you to eat and drink.

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

EXCESSIVE DENTAL HYGIENE CAN CAUSE PROBLEMS AND CONSEQUENCES

Brushing your teeth many times and with great force can damage your gums and leave your teeth unprotected. In addition, it must also be borne in mind that some compounds in mouthwashes tend to be more harmful than beneficial to oral health. Using the brush with force and with very abrupt horizontal movements can cause bleeding in the gum and wear on it. These are some of the consequences of excessive brushing without control:

  1. Enamel wear. Whenever the teeth are exposed to excessive and rough brushing, wear of the dental enamel, which is the layer that protects the teeth against different external agents, can occur.
  2. Gum laceration. Similar to a gum tear or tear from applying excessive force when brushing.
  3. Dental sensitivity. When enamel wear occurs, teeth are left unprotected.

A toothbrush is made up of filaments, which can be made up of hard or soft bristles for sensitive teeth. If a high-hardness toothbrush is chosen, it can cause damage when it comes into contact with the surface of the teeth and gums, making them more sensitive and vulnerable to the bacteria that populate the mouth.

Electric or manual toothbrush?

It is true that with the electric brush, you reach more difficult areas of your mouth, thanks to its action system in different directions that cleans in greater depth. It is also true that if manual brushing is done conscientiously by working and cleaning the areas of your mouth well, the same result is obtained — but with greater effort.

The ideal brushing should last 2 minutes, passing the brush through the upper and lower internal and external surfaces of your teeth, gums, and tongue. You can complement brushing with dental floss.

It is very important not to give up the habit of brushing your teeth, as tooth decay will accelerate. It can cause whitish stains and tooth sensitivity when the enamel is already damaged and the tooth is more exposed.

HOW TO PROTECT YOUR TOOTHBRUSH AGAINST COVID BACTERIA AND AVOID POSSIBLE DISEASES?

Something to keep in mind in our daily life is that we store a large number of bacteria, germs, and microbes on our hands without realizing it. In everyday actions such as exchanging bills and coins, turning the doorknob, typing an article on our computer, writing a WhatsApp with our mobile, and even stroking our pet, we are at risk of contracting these micro-organisms. We are exposed to a number of microbes that are present on an infinite number of objects, places, and even people, and that can easily transfer to your hands and finally ending up on your toothbrush.

The bacteria on your toothbrush builds up as the days go by. Therefore, we must detect it in time to be able to prevent possible diseases that can affect our dental health. Since this new normal requires us to pay much more attention to daily hygiene, we, therefore, must maintain excellent personal and dental hygiene.

Our professional team specialized in oral health, together with the advice provided by the General Council of Dentists of Spain, has put together 10 tips for cleaning teeth with your toothbrush and avoid contracting or spreading the coronavirus (COVID-19) :

  1. Never share a toothbrush
  2. Wash your hands well with soap and water before touching the toothbrush. Viruses can pass very easily from the hands to the mucous membranes (mouth, nose, and eyes). Your handwashing should be done carefully and should include the spaces between the fingers, nails, thumbs, and palms.
  3. You must maintain your dental hygiene habits. Never forget the importance of brushing your teeth after each meal to avoid the accumulation of tartar, the appearance of bad breath, or possible oral pathologies.
  4. Wash the toothbrush after use. Apply plenty of water to remove debris that may have remained on it
  5. While the epidemic lasts, it is recommended that the brush head be disinfected. The coronavirus is found in the saliva of both symptomatic and asymptomatic infected people, therefore an important tip to take care of your toothbrush during the COVID pandemic is to disinfect it after washing it. You can do this by immersing the brush head in a container with 0.2% povidone-iodine or 1% diluted hydrogen peroxide for one minute.
  6. Dry the brush properly. Lack of proper drying can allow moisture to remain in your brush head which favors the proliferation of bacteria and fungi. You can shake it by turning the handle from left to right and store it with the head up in an upright position.
  7. The coronavirus is also found in urine and feces; therefore, it is advisable not to have the brush in sight near the toilet, since when the chain is stretched, the particles could reach your toothbrush. In this case, it is advisable to keep it stored or well protected in a closet.
  8. Close the toilet seat before flushing. As we have discussed, recent studies have suggested that the virus can be spread through fecal matter. Therefore, you must make sure that your brush is at the correct distance from the toilet.
  9. If you live with more people, it is advisable not to put all the brushes piled together, since there could be a risk of cross-contamination when they come into contact with each other.
  10. It is important that you renew your brush every 3-4 months

These are the 10 dental hygiene tips that our team of specialists in dental implants abroad at Asensio Advanced Dentistry has put together for you. If you have any questions, you can call our landline 0800 086 9049 or send a email to office@dentalasensio.co.uk . We will be delighted to answer all your questions!

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.

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.

Invisalign is one of the invisible orthodontic treatments that we stand out for due to the comfort and the positive experiences of each of our patients. With this treatment, the teeth are progressively displaced until a correct position is achieved. It is made up of invisible splints that adapt to your mouth to get your teeth aligned without the need to use the notorious and annoying “metal braces”.

During the treatment, different aligners of varying shapes are placed at precise locations to be able to progressively guide the teeth to their new locations. The duration of each aligner will be approximately two weeks.

Our patients are assured that the results of these invisible orthodontics are noticeable from the first weeks and that nobody around will notice them wearing it, since it is transparent.
