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.

Alternatives to dental amalgam

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.

 

DO DENTAL IMPLANTS HURT?

When undergoing any dental treatment, pain is one of the main concerns that patients suffer. Thanks to improvements in new technologies, advances in medicine, and dental techniques, going to the dentist becomes something totally different from how we knew it. Now, it is part of a new experience.

One of the great advantages of dental implants spain is that they are not only placed through a painless procedure but also contribute to improving oral health and the appearance of the oral cavity. Dental prostheses do not hurt, neither during their placement and the postoperative period nor with their subsequent use when biting and chewing.

Before starting the intervention, the specialist in charge of the operation will usually administer local anesthesia to the patient. However, there have been cases in which people feel very reluctant to dental surgeries and therefore, at Asensio Advanced Odontology, we also offer an alternative to the application of local anesthesia, which is conscious sedation. This allows patients to feel more relaxed and less nervous before the intervention.

Recovery after dental implant surgery depends on many factors and varies from person to person. For this reason, it is very important to follow the rest and healing indications suggested by the specialized professional of Dr. Asensio’s team once the surgery is finished.

What are dental implants?

Dental implants are artificial roots that are created to replace the roots of lost teeth and are capable of integrating to the point of living together in a healthy and totally natural way with the rest of the tissues of the mouth. The crowns or dental prostheses will then settle on these roots, thus completing these artificial teeth.

Implants act like natural teeth, so the patient does not notice the difference and can lead a totally normal life.
