DENTAL IMPLANTS ABROAD

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.

WHAT IS TOOTH WHITENING?

In the aesthetics sector, teeth whitening is the treatment that is responsible for reducing the original color of the teeth by several tones, leaving the teeth whiter and brighter.

With teeth whitening, it is possible to eliminate the stains produced in the pieces due to substances such as tea, coffee, and other infusions, cigarettes, red wine and alcoholic beverages, and even sugary foods. It is true that not all stains can be eliminated or reduced through teeth whitening and may need other types of aesthetic treatments such as porcelain dental veneers.

In Asensio Odontología Avanzada, we offer you the tooth whitening technique with the most spectacular results on the market. It is a modern, fast, and effective procedure for whitening darkened and stained teeth.

The whitening process takes approximately one hour and the patient can see the results from the first session, thanks to our innovative appliances and advanced laser equipment such as Phillips Zoom. In addition, our team of specialized dentists gives special recommendations to allow you to keep perfect, white, and shiny dental hygiene from your home. The treatment can be repeated every six months or year, depending on the spots or pigmentation present.

It is important and necessary to have a professional dental cleaning with a laser before getting the Zoom whitening session at our dental clinic in valencia. We are one of the few clinics in Valencia that have the latest generation technology to apply it.

How is the whitening process with Phillips Zoom in dental clinic Asensio ?

It is an alternative whitening to laser, less intense than the usual ones, where lasers are not used to accelerate the whitening effect of a concentrated gel. It is a state-of-the-art whitening lamp that speeds up the process and is less aggressive than other techniques with which you will hardly experience any tooth sensitivity.

In this process, 35% hydrogen peroxide bleaching is activated. As hydrogen peroxide breaks down, oxygen enters the enamel and dentin to whiten stained substances, without changing the structure of the tooth.

The Phillips Zoom working method is practically identical to that of the laser technologies but with the additional use of LED lights to speed up the process.

The main advantage is that it is less intense, thereby not affecting your tooth sensitivity. Moreover, it will take several sessions to complete it, although you will see results from the first day of treatment.

It must be borne in mind that whitening has no effect on any type of restorations such as amalgams and restorations made with halogen light (resins or white fillings, inlays and crowns, or bridges).

Step by step with Phillips Zoom

The treatment lasts less than an hour and you will get results from the first session. The frequently used procedure in Asensio Advanced Dentistry is divided into the following steps:

  1. The patient’s lips and gums are covered with a gingival protector or barrier to expose the teeth for subsequent work on.
  2. The whitening specialist applies Zoom hydrogen peroxide whitening gel on the teeth and then with a personalized mouthpiece for each patient, we bring the lamp closer to their mouth, which together with the light from the Phillips Zoom lamp works to penetrate the tooth and disintegrate stains and discoloration.
  3. The gel is allowed to act for 15 minutes together with the Phillips Zoom LED light.
  4. During this time, the patient can enjoy a movie with our latest generation 3D glasses, in a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
  5. Four cycles of photoactivation are carried out in the clinic. The session is divided into four 15-minute sessions, where the same process is repeated four times with the zoom light activated to achieve an effective whitening effect.
  6. Once the four sessions of 15 minutes each have finished, a gel-paste with fluoride is applied to the teeth to reduce tooth sensitivity.

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.
