Operating room

Outpatient surgery: It will not be necessary to admit the patient after the intervention

Medical consultation and necessary subsequent check-ups

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.

Request your appointment and put yourself in the hands of the team of Dr. Lucia Asensio and Dr. Jose Luis Lanuza, a leading professional team in dental health, dental aesthetics, and dental implants in Valencia. Remember that in case of any unforeseen event, you can count on the best dental clinic abroad by calling 0800 086 9049 or sending an email to office@dentalasensio.co.uk

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.

INVISALIGN: THE MOST REQUESTED ORTHODONTICS IN DENTAL AESTHETICS

Within the dental aesthetics sector, the invisible orthodontics has been positioning itself as one of the most innovative and requested treatments in recent years. According to the digital newspaper La Vanguardia, “the market for invisible orthodontics has grown at a rate of 12.6% every year since 2016”.

But what are the reasons that have made invisible orthodontics grow in popularity and be increasingly requested?

The main reason why most people prefer this type of treatment over traditional orthodontics is its high aesthetic value. Invisalign has transparent splints that replace the classic brackets and these will be in charge of correcting the position of the teeth. By replacing the braces with transparent splints, the treatment is more discreet, since other people will not notice who is wearing this type of orthodontics.

Moreover, Invisalign is a cleaner treatment than other orthodontics. The person who uses it does not have things stuck to the teeth, which means the covers can be easily removed for cleaning purposes. It should also be noted that it does not scratch the lips or the gums and by not using metal wires, there is no accumulation of plaque around the areas where the brackets are placed.

Another reason that has helped in this growth in popularity is the technological advances such as touch screens that integrate X-rays, intraoral scanners, or reconstruction that provide advantages when making diagnoses, allowing treatments to be less invasive and the result to be more precise.

These reasons make the patient satisfied with both the process and the result obtained and there is a high probability that they will end up recommending INVISALIGN abroad to people who are thinking of going to their dentist in Valencia to get orthodontia.

At Asensio Advanced Dentistry, we have the DIAMOND level granted by INVISALIGN, the highest level that can be achieved, which proves our great experience with this technique and allows us to offer the best prices.

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!

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.

 

Atrophy in Spain

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.
