DENTAL HYGIENE AND PREVENTION

DENTAL HYGIENE AND PREVENTION ARE THE SCIENTIFIC, CLINICAL, ETHICAL AND SOCIAL BASIS OF THE DENTAL CLINIC THAT AIMS TO SERVE IN THEIR COMMUNITY.

A dental clinic is as good as it is the health of the gums of its patients.

The factors that cause illness and loss natural teeth, also affect crowns, bridges and implants. The basis for the maintenance of oral health in the long term is Dental Hygiene.

Although they can be cured more or less rapidly, the bear is slow to regenerate, and teeth and tooth parts are still more.

Keeping the health of the gums in the long term is easy: Brush your teeth twice daily, go to the dentist for oral hygiene and check-up at least once a year. By this way, any pathology is detected early and treated without any inconvenience and with little expense.

The mouths of today have 5 serious threats:

 

  1. Refined or industrial food that nourishes germs that cause cavities and diseases of the gums.
  2. Toxic, like tobacco and alcohol.
  3. Clutter or bruxism, which causes the whole mouth to work many extra hours.
  4. The genetic predisposition to suffer from periodontal disease.
  5. The fact that now we live many more years and therefore has to stay 30 years more in shape.

 

Oral Hygiene and the teaching of correct maintenance of oral health is the axis around which the activity of our clinic revolves.

In this way, if a patient, for whatever reason and age, is not able to keep the teeth free of bacterial plaque, mouth and denture are poised to become ill and our treatments will not reach the success they could have achieved.

Here we see how a mouth is suffering from acute gingivitis (PHOTO 1). In the next picture, we see the efficacy of a well-done dental hygiene and gum in the healing process (PHOTO 2).

In our Clinic we know how to keep the mouth healthy in front of these threats and challenges by implementing a set of practices:

PROFESSIONAL DENTAL HYGIENE:

Practice consisting of:

  • Carefully remove the snuff adhering to the tooth and tooth with minimal discomfort.
  • Teach the patient the places where he gets tufts and how to brush himself to prevent his accumulation.
  • Give correct feeding tips that are necessary to reduce threats.
  • Register the data obtained so that they are comparable in time and anticipate the evolution.
  • Concerts the next appointment, to avoid discontinuation in the treatment and follow-up.
  • The total time dedicated to dental hygiene is one hour.

PREVENTIVE ACTION:

In which we look for five types of pathologies:

  1. The cavities: It is the dissolution of the hard tissue of the dental pieces and can produce pain, infections, cysts in the maxillary and loss of the teeth with the consequent breakdown of the dental arch and the masticatory and aesthetic effects so unpleasant.

2. Gingival diseases: Be reversible, gingivitis, or irreversible, periodontal disease, which was previously called pyorrhea. According to the World Health Organization, it is the most widespread illness of humanity and without treatment; it can make all the dental parts lose.

3.Bones anomalies: By a digital x-ray of both maxillary ones. This is a novelty since we have a digital device that allows us to do the x-rays that we did before but with much less radiation. For our part, we understand that the risks compensate for the benefits, although, as in everything, the patient has the ultimate word about whether or not to do an x-ray.

4. Diseases of soft tissues and oral cancer: Through examination and palpation, we discard oral mucosal pathologies that can be premalignant, such as leucoplasts, or malignant oral cancer, especially in places hidden as under the tongue, or that the patient knows that he has been for some time but does not give him or does not want to give him importance.

5. The effects of apprehension and bruxism: often devastating and so frequent today because of the suffering caused by the economic insecurity of people and families. Well-crafted mouths can suffer from very destructive effects if these paraphrases appear that cause unconsciously to chew hours and hours with much more force than usual.

TAKE CARE FOR THE HEALTH IS A JOB THAT DOES NOT FINALLY NEVER: PROCURE TO ASSUME THE PERIODIC VISIT TO THE DENTIST AS A BENEFIT ROUTE, NOT AS A HEADACHE.
