KNOW THE SPACES OF A DENTAL CLINIC

Transmitting a good image of your dental clinic is key to being able to show your patients how you are and what values you represent in your dental clinic. Also, from a good first impression, patients can feel safer and much calmer before starting the treatment.

In our dental clinic, you can find several differentiated spaces that can make you feel at home and increase your feeling of relaxation from the first moment:
1. Exterior of the dental clinic. Located in an unbeatable location in terms of accessibility, allowing you to get to your first visit via the metro and bus lines without any problem. You save gasoline and contribute to the environment by using public transport and even cycling.
2. Spacious, neat, and clean reception with several waiting rooms. We will always receive you with a smile.
3. Asensio coffee area, where you can enjoy a spice while having a coffee.
4. Several waiting rooms (first floor and upper floor)
5. Management offices
6. X-ray room
7. Cabinets. They are the center of the consultation, and each and every treatment is practiced there. Each cabinet is equipped with its dental chair and they are closed spaces for greater privacy.
8. Warehouse
9. Sterilization room
With 87% more than the reception and waiting rooms, our patients prefer the cabinet without a doubt. They consider it the best space since they have spent part of the treatment process there and it is where they have been most relaxed and happy. Visit us and experience yourself!

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

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.
