Tips for oral hygiene in little boys and girls

– Initiate the responsibility of oral hygiene in children, with the support of the dentist.

– Make them understand that visits to the dentist are necessary to avoid tooth problems and to check that everything is running smoothly!

-If you start taking your child to the dentist at an early age, their fear will disappear much sooner.

  1. Bring an object that is considered valuable to increase your confidence and predisposition.
  2. Before going to the dentist, the objective should be explained in detail to reassure the child.
  3. Maintain oral hygiene throughout the family. Older adults should set an example for the little ones by maintaining exquisite dental hygiene.

IMMEDIATE DENTAL IMPLANTS: THE BEST SOLUTION IN ADVANCED DENTISTRY ASSESSMENT

This is the treatment of dental implants abroad spains at the Asensio Advanced Dentistry clinic that allows you to show off your smile and enjoy dental health forever.

There are many reasons why our patients usually resort to dental implants as the first option at Asensio Advanced Odontology dental clinic in Valencia, among other treatments.

One of them is the immediacy and ease, the security that comes with having a new, perfect, and healthy smile in just one day, as well as the confidence that the entire professional team of the dental clinic exudes from the first moment.

“I was so scared. After a complete review with a 3D scanner, I was informed that the best solution would be to have a dental implant in one of my teeth since it had just been broken by a cavity caused by early periodontitis. It had very little strength. The tooth extraction and dental implant placement would be carried out on the same day. Due to having the most sensitive dental bone, any other type of surgery would not be as effective. Therefore, I decided that I should bet on my dental health at the age of 24”, tells us one of our young patients who underwent dental implant surgery.

Lucia Asensio, Medical Director of the spanish dental clinic Asensio Advanced Odontology explains that “The implant healing process usually lasts between 3 and 4 months. Although everything depends on each patient, there have been cases where the healing process has been faster than in others. Once the implant has finished its healing process, the artificial tooth previously prepared for it is placed.

HOW MUCH DOES A FIXED PROSTHESIS COST?

What is a fixed prosthesis?

Fixed dental prostheses are those that remain permanently attached to the patient’s mouth, and therefore cannot be removed. It is not necessary to remove the prosthesis to clean it and it has no drawbacks of leaking food debris.

They do not need to go through a period of adaptation, as with traditional dentures which can be uncomfortable for the first few days when speaking.

There are two types of fixed dental prostheses:

– Fixed prosthesis on teeth: The prosthesis is attached to the healthy teeth of the patient, achieving great support and firmness. The only disadvantage is that you have to damage the teeth and polish them to get the prosthesis to hold properly.

– Fixed prosthesis on dental implants: In this case, it is attached to one or more titanium implants, which act as the root of the tooth. The prosthesis is fastened on them.

Fixed prostheses are used to replace the loss of teeth, providing the patient with a fixed tooth with which he can chew and speak regularly without any discomfort, thus fulfilling the functions of a normal tooth.

What does it consist of?

In our Asensio Advanced Odontology dental clinic, this treatment consists of a professional from our team specialized in dentistry in spain and stomatology placing a custom-made dental piece in the patient’s mouth to fill in the missing piece. The process of placing the prosthesis will depend on its type:

– Fixed prosthesis on teeth: The teeth are carved and worn in width and height, forming what is called a “stump”, so that later, the prosthesis can be fitted on them and achieves a lasting hold. One of the disadvantages is that it is necessary to carve the tooth.

– Fixed prosthesis on dental implants: The prosthesis is fixed on the titanium implant, which acts as a dental root and on which the crown or bridge will be placed.

How much is a fixed prosthesis worth?

Putting in a dental prosthesis is a necessary expense when teeth fall out for different reasons. The price of a fixed prosthesis, in general terms, depends to a great extent on the patient and the treatment they need. Therefore, it is difficult to give a fixed price without taking into account the circumstances. A fixed prosthesis usually ranges from €250, and a fixed denture from €4,500, although this price may vary depending on several factors:

– Material of which it is made

– Number of teeth: The more teeth that are needed to be replaced through a prosthesis, the higher the price.

– Applied technology: The price will vary depending on the techniques that are needed for the installation.

– Provisional prostheses: The need for temporary dentures will also drive up the price.

WHAT ARE DENTAL IMPLANTS?

Dental implants are pieces of pure titanium that replace the original dental roots, thereby allowing us to place an aesthetic and functional artificial piece in the place previously occupied by a natural tooth.

The implants are placed in a short procedure under very mild local anesthesia, as it is almost painless. The implant fuses with the jawbone, giving the artificial teeth stable support. These implants will not cause displacement in the mouth and will remain fixed and stable, which will be a great advantage for chewing and speaking.

 

4 Tips for oral care of implants

– Carry out complete oral hygiene. It is advisable to brush your teeth after every meal and floss every day. It is also important to know what type of toothbrush suits your needs.
– Stop smoking or reduce the dose. Smoking weakens the bone structure and can make the implant not as effective.
– Visit the dentist. It is advisable to make visits every 3 months to your trusted dental clinic to undergo routine cleanings and exams for verifying the condition of the implants.
– Avoid chewing hard food or hard elements such as ice or candy that could cause breakage in dental crowns and even break natural teeth.

 

What are the advantages of dental implants?

– It is a conservative procedure: It is not necessary to modify the teeth adjacent to the tooth to be replaced.
– The implant can be placed in any patient: Anyone may undergo the treatment. But first, a review must be carried out to check the oral health status to rule out the possibility of any cavities or dental disease. If they exist, they will have to be eliminated before the process.
– The implant prevents chewing and tooth movement problems: When a tooth is missing, the rest of the teeth try to reposition themselves to fill the existing gap. On the other hand, when the bone does not receive the stimulus produced by the tooth when chewing, it experiences a loss of thickness and height.
– Implants increase the self-esteem of patients: By replacing the gap of a lost tooth with an identical tooth, the person receives a great boost in self-confidence as they can chew without any problems and enjoy a beautiful smile. Not only does your smile recover, but your quality of life is restored as well.
– It does not need special care: Hygiene with an implant is completely identical to normal brushing: brush after every meal to avoid tartar and cavities. Keep in mind that it is necessary to carry out regular check-ups at the dentist.
– The implant can be placed even if there is not enough bone.

 

What does the treatment consist of?

The placement of an implant to replace the lost tooth is a very simple and safe technique. The implant is like a screw that must be inserted at the base of the gum, in the maxillofacial bone, by surgery. This “screw” will act as the new root of the tooth by fully integrating with the bone. The integration between the implant and the bone will take about 2 to 3 months to complete.

Once the adequate union between the bone and the implant has been confirmed, we move on to the next phase: a pillar or base will be placed so that the new tooth or prosthesis can grip and does not move. The exact measurements of the gap and the color of the teeth will be taken so that their new appearance is identical to the originals.

 

Dental Implants Price

In general terms, the price of the dental implant depends to a great extent on the patient and the treatment they need. It may vary depending on the oral health status and the number of implants needed. For this reason, it is very difficult to give away a fixed price without taking into account the needs and circumstances of the patient.

As an approximation, the price of complete quality dental implants abroad in a spanish dental clinic (with surgery, screw, and crowns included) ranges between €1000 and €1500.

Implants abroad

Infected dental implant

Implant infected / rejected?

Many of our patients are confused about whether their dental implants abroad are infected or have been rejected by their bodies. When a qualified professional such as those who make up the Asensio Advanced Dentistry team places a quality dental implant, the risk of some type of infection is practically very low; however, there could be minimal complications. Although very unusual (its risk barely reaches 2%), under certain circumstances, immediate medical attention will be required.

Symptoms of implant infection

Some of the symptoms of a failed implant can be confused with the more typical post-operative discomforts, although the main difference to identify if there is an infection will come from the duration of the symptoms. These symptoms should not last more than 7 days, with the patient beginning to notice improvements from the third day onwards.

When rejection of the dental implant occurs, we mainly notice the following symptoms:

– Redness of the gums in the implant area

– Inflammatory pockets around the implant

– Bleeding and suppuration

– Pain around the implant and in the intervened area

– Bacterial plaque around the dental implant

– In more advanced cases, mobility of the dental implant occurs

It must be borne in mind that during the first week, it is totally normal for redness and even accumulation of bacterial plaque to occur. For this reason, you will be summoned for a review where it will be verified how the treatment is progressing.

After dental implant surgery, it will be necessary to wait for 3 to 4 months to allow the affected area to heal completely before placing the permanent prosthesis or crown.

PLACEMENT AND USE OF SNAP-ON SMILE

What is 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.

CORRECT DENTAL HYGIENE FOR SENSITIVE GUMS

After undergoing dental cleaning treatments, especially in deep dental cleanings, it will be normal for tooth sensitivity to increase. Over time, this feeling diminishes and you will find your teeth and gums much healthier than before.

Swollen, tender, or bleeding gums will gradually improve over time as long as you brush your teeth carefully and consistently. However, in most patients, the general discomfort due to dental cleaning disappears in a day or two.

Tooth sensitivity is more difficult to avoid on a day-to-day basis, especially when eating or drinking hot or cold foods, as well as biting and brushing your teeth.

HYGIENE TIPS FOR SENSITIVE GUMS

– Carry out a complete brushing of about 2-3 minutes to remove all the accumulated tartar with up and down and circular movements. The type of brush is important.

– Gently massage the gum with the brush while cleaning it.

– It is advisable to use a good quality soft toothbrush and brush gently, both teeth and gums, to avoid the accumulation of bacterial plaque. It is also recommended not to chew gum so that tartar does not accumulate on the gums.

– Use of irrigators and dental floss is recommended in patients with problematic gums since they manage to remove tartar from those corners that the brush cannot reach.

– Chlorhexidine mouthwashes are very beneficial in the hygiene of sensitive gums as it provides an aseptic action.

– In addition, we can combat gingivitis with food, reinforcing our diet with a good dose of vitamin C, which helps to repair damaged gum tissues.
