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.
