Implants: Teeth for life

Implants: Teeth for life

The purpose of an implant is to sustain the restoration of one or more missing teeth. Implantology has become one of the most advanced cosmetic techniques in the field of dentistry.

A dental implant is nothing more than the replacement of the tooth root, a small root-shaped device that is placed into the jaw bone to support a dental prosthetic restoration (crown). As Dr. Ivan Flores Apaza, dentist, specialist in implant aesthetics, implants are made of titanium material compatible with living tissues. One of the advantages of the implant is that it requires altering the structure of adjacent teeth to keep fixed the new “crown that will subject entire life.”

Tooth decay, trauma or severe periodontitis (gum disease) are some of the situations that can cause tooth loss and affect the maxillary bone support. In these cases a lasting and healthy option is an implant to replace a missing tooth (or in the alternative, to replace a bridge).

Symptoms of an abscessed tooth

Symptoms of an abscessed tooth

Having a dental abscess can be very unpleasant if not painful. An abscess is actually an infection that has reached either a tooth or the gum around a tooth. People realize they have an abscess when they begin to feel pain, although an abscess may develop for weeks without really having trouble. Therefore, the main symptom is severe pain in the mouth, which comes from the infected tooth, but can also be spread across the side of the face.

Other symptoms may also indicate if an abscessed tooth is about to occur:

1. Gums become red and swollen, with swelling around the tooth;
2. Chewing food becomes painful when the infected tooth is in contact with food or with other teeth;
3. An infection can cause fever, leading to general fatigue and even headaches;
4. After the swelling has occurred, pus may come out of the abscess and drain into the mouth.

This could have a bad taste, and it is recommended to spit out the mouth instead of swallowing it, but the pain is generally calm after the pus.

Brushing Teeth

Brushing Teeth

More toothbrushes are soft, the better!

Too big, too thick, too hard, most toothbrushes generally have the same denominator. This also applies to toothbrushes “medium” marketing term that is often recommended, it is also true for most toothbrushes for children. Be sure to mention the brushes (soft ultra-soft) and in particular on the surface of the brush (small). Use a toothbrush extra soft, with little head about 2 cm long, and / or brush teeth Fresh isolated (Solo model).

Adopt new technology especially the strand tapered very significantly higher than that of regular strands.

The role of the toothbrush.

The main function of the toothbrush is to remove dental plaque, ie destroy the evolving structure of the film to make the mass of the plate harmless. A total elimination of the plate is not possible or desired, because a sterile mouth is extremely unhealthy. Only bacterial relatively thick layers and old cause cavities and gum inflammation. And of course, always brushing “pink to white!” Or, in the sense of the gum around the tooth.

Difference between the hair and the hair usually taper.

The revolution of the conical pile (Konex): 6 times end, he reaches the most extreme places in between the teeth that are responsible for 90% of caries, increases very significantly the surface cleaning and gives you comfort Special brushing!
