At Clinica Dental Asensio we are aware of the importance of taking care of the oral health of the smallest of the house, and therefore we are experts in pediatric dentistry in Valencia. Pediatric dentistry is that part of dentistry that is responsible for the care, maintenance and prevention of children’s dental health from their childhood to adolescence.

It is recommended that the first dental check-up for boys and girls takes place when the first year is reached. In this review, the maxillary and mandible growth, the correct eruption of the teeth will be taken into account and the presence of pathologies such as cavities will be ruled out.

Previous tips to avoid dental problems in children:

  • Teach your children correct daily oral hygiene habits
  • They have to learn to take care of their oral health since they are very young to prevent problems in the future

Treatments in pediatric dentistry:

  • Groove and fissure sealants. It is one of the most common interventions in children. It consists of filling fissures that may appear on the surface of the teeth. It is a painless and easy to use method that protects against cavities.
  • Pulpectomy. It is a treatment similar to endodontics that is performed for adults, with the difference that cavities in children will affect baby teeth.
  • Obturation or also known as dental filling. It is used for cavities in both adults and children. Cavities have to be treated as soon as possible to prevent them from reaching the dental nerve.
  • Application of fluoride. It is a treatment that is used for preventive purposes. It hardens the enamel of the teeth and allows children to have strong and healthy teeth.
  • Brackets. With dental appliances a correct development of the maxillary bones and teeth is obtained to correct any alteration or anomaly in bone or dental development.

What is periodontics, periodontal disease and its treatment?

Periodontics in the dental field treats diseases related to the periodontium, that is, those pathologies that affect the gums, alveolar bone, periodontal ligament and periodontal cement.
Among the main periodontal diseases are gingivitis and periodontitis.

• Gingivitis: This is inflammation and bleeding of the gums. It may not cause discomfort at first, but as it progresses, it causes redness and swelling of the gums and leads to tooth sensitivity, as well as occasional or chronic bleeding when brushing.
• Periodontitis: this is the destruction of the bone that supports the teeth. It is the pathology derived from gingivitis by not having treated it in time.

These types of diseases are caused by the formation of bacterial plaque that attack the gums and the bone that supports the teeth (in the case of periodontitis). Factors such as tobacco or stress help to further develop these diseases.
The symptoms that can give us clues that we suffer from periodontal disease are:

• Bad smell in the mouth: it is mainly due to the waste from the metabolism of tartar and bacterial plaque.
• Displacement of the teeth: it is produced by the weakening of the supporting tissue of the gum.
• Longer teeth: produced by the reduction of the gum.
• Mobility of the teeth: this can lead to the loss of the tooth.
• Swelling and bleeding in the gum area.

Treatment for periodontal disease will depend on the stage you are in. The dentist will be in charge of evaluating and drawing up the treatment plan for our mouth. If the disease is in an early stage, the first step will be to perform a deep tooth cleaning or curettage. This cleaning consists of scraping the tooth roots with instruments called curettes. With this procedure, the tartar accumulated on the surfaces near the gums is removed and the teeth are free of impurities. The treatment will be complemented with the indications and medical prescription of the dentist.
In the event that the pathology is in a more advanced stage, surgery will be carried out to perform a much deeper cleaning and evaluate the state of the bone that supports the tooth.

Finally, we report that in our dental clinic we follow the prevention and safety measures against COVID-19. We will be happy to solve all your questions and help you in any way possible in your safe dental clinic in Valencia, so that you can show your best smile without any concern and you can count on your trusted dental clinic in Valencia.

5 tips for dental health

5 TIPS TO KEEP YOUR MOUTH HEALTHY

In dental clinic Asensio Advanced Dentistry we want to advise our patients on how to maintain the mouth and healthy oral hygiene:

  1. Brush your teeth 2 to 3 times a day for two minutes. Use the brush that best suits you and your dental sensitivity, you can find a variety of types on our blog (link to different brushes blog). You can do it with your electric toothbrush (link electric toothbrush blog) or manually. Both have their own characteristics and advantages.
  1. It is very important to change the brush every 2 months
  2. Don’t forget to clean your tongue
  3. Take care of your diet and do not abuse carbonated drinks. By containing a high content of sugars and being very acidic, they damage the enamel, producing, after excessive intake over time, dental sensitivity.
  4. It is very important that you take care of your habits: nibbling on pencils or pens, biting your nails or clenching your teeth while you sleep. It is very important to pay attention to prevent infections
