What are dental amalgams?

Amalgams are the material largely composed of mercury and an alloy of silver, tin, and copper, which is used to fill gaps where tooth decay occurs. It has been used for more than 150 years in hundreds of millions of patients around the world.

The main risk of this material is that it contains mercury and can be released in the form of a vapor, which can be inhaled and absorbed through the lungs in surgery with personnel not qualified for this type of action. The International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT) describes a product based on the protection of the patient and the dentist from the vapor and mercury particles released in the process. In its vapor form, inhaled mercury will pass into the blood system by up to 80%. At Asensio Odontología Avanzada, we use a unique protocol with highly qualified staff and all the innovation in equipment and technology necessary for these successful withdrawals.

At Asensio Odontología Avanzada, we are committed to comprehensive and holistic dentistry abroad. One of our main objectives is to take care of the dental health of our patients, contributing and respecting the environment, with the use of top-quality biocompatible materials.

Amalgams contain mercury, a material highly toxic to health in general. Instead, the most common filling is with composite resins or composites or glass ionomer. It is a mixture of an organic or resin matrix and an inorganic one, which will form the filling that will give the tooth hardness and resistance.

The resin that is most used today is BIS-GMA or bisphenol-a and its derivatives. They have been shown to be endocrine transducers that affect our endocrine system.

Like all direct filling materials, they are all used to restore the surface of the tooth that has been damaged by decay.

 

What is atrophy?

Atrophy is a decrease or absence of development of a body structure or part. In the dental sector, it is the loss of bone due to the absence of teeth, which makes it impossible to wear dental implants abroad and fixed prostheses. Bone atrophy can be localized in a specific area or be generalized in both the maxilla and the mandible.

Temporomandibular Joint: What is ATM in the mouth?

The temporomandibular joint is the one that allows us to perform all the chewing movements: lateral, up and down, protrusion, and retrusion.

ATM disorders are problems that affect the joints and chewing muscles that connect the lower jaw to the skull.

How to relieve ATM pain?

  1. You can perform massages both inside and outside the mouth.
  2. Palpation – You can apply pressure with your fingers to certain points of the jaw and fase.
  3. Cold spray and muscle stretching – It is done to relax the muscles.
  4. Anesthetic – Can ease pain.

Types of alterations

  • Myofascial pain: May appear in patients with a normal temporomandibular joint.
  • Internal asymmetry
  • Degenerative and inflammatory disorders

What are the causes of these disorders?

Pain can appear from a combination of factors:

  • Congenital and developmental disorders: lead to aplasias, hypoplasia, and hyperplasia.
  • Malocclusions. Muscle problems, headaches, and jaw dysfunctions over time.
  • Disorder of the condyle-disc complex
  • Metabolic diseases
  • Infections
  • Condylar subluxation
  • Neurological pathologies
  • Muscle disorders
  • Tooth loss
  • Trauma
  • Neoplasms
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Disc-condylar and disc-fossa adhesions
  • Ankylosis
  • Physical overload
  • Stress or depression
  • Inflammatory disorders

What are the symptoms?

  • Pain in the face, jaw, or neck
  • Pain around, in front or in the ear
  • Pain on both sides of the head
  • Pain on one side of the head that can be triggered when you clench your teeth
  • Pain in the muscles and/or joint of the jaw
  • Limited movement or locking of the jaw
  • Difficulty or discomfort to chew
  • A change in the way the teeth fit together
  • Muscle spasms around the jaw
  • Difficulty or discomfort to chew
  • A change in the way the teeth fit together
  • Muscle spasms around the jaw

Specialized ATM treatments

Each patient will be affected by ATM in a different way. In this case, the specialist will assess what the needs of each patient are to diagnose the treatment that best suits them. Jaw pain can go away with little or even no treatment. In the case of needing some treatment, you can go through the application of simple practices such as applying ice or eating soft foods. On the other hand, it may also require the use of pain relievers or devices to be placed in the mouth.

The specialist will always assess the situation of each patient in order to accurately recommend the application of treatments that will be required:

-Conservative treatments:

  • Stabilization splints: They reduce activity by modifying sensory stimulation, thereby reducing muscle pain caused by constant pressure on the jaw.
  • Physiotherapy: Favors the quality of life of patients.

-Surgical treatments:

  • Arthrocentesis: Through two intra-articular needles, a so-called joint lavage is performed where all microscopic particles are removed and then a solution is injected that helps lubricate the joint.
  • Arthroscopy: With an intra-articular camera (arthroscope), the joint can be examined, inflammatory tissue removed, and structures manipulated.
  • Joint replacement: In the event of functional disability, substitution by an artificial prosthesis is suggested.
  • Open Surgery: In the event that a tumor occurs in the joint, open surgery will be necessary so that the specialist can remove the damaged tissue.

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.
