What is a stomatologist doctor?

Despite the similarity with the word stomach, a stomatologist has nothing to do with any specialty related to the stomach. Stomatology is an area of ​​medicine that studies diseases, anatomy, and physiology related to the mouth. Therefore, a stomatologist will be in charge of diagnosing, treating, and preventing those cases related to the field of stomatology.

The periodontium, the teeth, the neuromuscular system, the temporomandibular joint, and the structures of the oral cavity are examples of the areas that a stomatologist is in charge of.

What are the differences between a stomatologist and a dentist?

A stomatologist has a degree in Medicine and Surgery, while a dentist has a degree in Dentistry.

Despite having studied different careers, the skills of both degrees are the same, so the main difference between the two is in the title obtained. Another difference that exists is that the stomatologist can practice general medicine.

Since both diagnose, treat and prevent all oral pathologies, if you need to attend any type of oral care, you can go to either of them without any problem.

 

Finally, we inform you that in our dental clinic, 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.

13 REASONS TO SMILE DAILY – DENTAL CLINIC IN SPAIN

Smiling is an attitude that accompanies us throughout the day. When we smile we discharge endorphins, we are happier and calmer, and it is also part of a secret weapon of seduction.

What are the advantages of smile?

  1. Reduce stress and elevate your mood. When your face is suddenly flooded with a good smile, your body allows you to control the high secretion of cortisol and adrenaline that induces stress. In this way, a relaxing effect is produced on your body and on your mind that helps you better cope with painful moments and acts as a calming for the people around you.
  2. The main organs of the body are energized. Your brain takes on stimulation charges, which are also sent to your lungs and heart.
  3. When you release endorphins you feel more relaxed, balanced and help to relieve pain. Your facial muscles relax and also your nervous system helping to have a better response to painful situations.
  4. Smiling increases positive thoughts by leaving negative emotions behind. When you smile on purpose, you signal your body to take on a new frame of mind. It is said that there is a change in our brain chemistry, and in this way the attitude changes completely to send you doses of joy and happiness.

“When you smile because yes, everything around you will change”

  1. Helps control cardiovascular health. Blood pressure is lowered and blood circulation is activated, increasing blood oxygenation
  2. Laughter is considered to be a physical exercise, and the airways are also cleared
  3. Stimulates dental health care. A person who smiles a lot, who has many social skills, perhaps a person who is dedicated to education and conducts talks and workshops, or a person who is dedicated to music. These are people who care about maintaining good dental hygiene and taking care of oral health because their smile is their most precious communication tool.
  4. Improve confidence and social skills. It is proven that people who smile more communicate more easily with others and that they forge bonds more quickly. Since they are perceived as confident and happy people.

“Because your mission is to be happy”

  1. Smiling makes you a more attractive and younger person. People who always have a smile on their face are perceived as more pleasant than the rest. Being nice makes it easier to build and maintain better relationships with people. This is important for your overall health and well-being.
  2. Smiling is contagious due to mirror neurons, which we mimic to learn. In this way when we smile we can make others benefit as well.
  3. Smiling lengthens life
  4. Includes you in social status. The smiles of the most influential people in the world share certain characteristic features. Thus, the most smiling are usually seen as the most charismatic
  5. And best of all… It’s free!

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.

PLACEMENT AND USE OF 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

– It can be used as provisionals in patients who are in the process of treatment or prosthetic rehabilitation with crowns or dental veneers, or also as provisionals in implantology treatments.

 

Advantages of Snap-on Smile

– It is an alternative to removable prostheses that do not need hooks, palate, adhesives, anesthesia, or tooth cutting.

– It is fully reversible and removable.

– It does not affect the gums or the dental structure of the patient.

– Does not stain.

– You can eat with Snap-on Smile, or you can simply take it off to eat.

– Avoid the need to wear dental prostheses or do dental veneer restorations to achieve a beautiful smile.

– It does not damage the teeth, since there is no need for dental preparation or grinding. Its retention system is made in such a way that it fits like a splint on the internal and external surfaces of the teeth.

– You improve the aesthetics of the smile and allow the specialized dentist to design a new color, shape, and size for your teeth.

– With the use of snap-on smile, the patient does not suffer the inesthetic effects of the absence of teeth.

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.
