Cosmetic dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that deals with the health and aesthetic harmony of the whole mouth. The most common treatments fCosmetic dentistry refers to the branch of dentistry that deals with the health and aesthetic harmony of the whole mouth. The most common treatments for aesthetic purposes are oral hygiene, enamel micro-abrasion, aesthetic contouring, dental blanquamiento, restorative treatment, orthodontic and periodontal treatment. Thanks to constant technological advances, techniques and machinery to provide the patient oral aesthetics are becoming more sophisticated.
A dental implant is an artificial fixing piece in the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. To implement it, the dentist should stick a titaA dental implant is an artificial fixing piece in the jawbone to replace the root of a missing tooth. To implement it, the dentist should stick a titanium screw into the jawbone, on which after a prosthetic crown (artificial tooth) is placed. This surgery can be classified into various types, according to the phases in which it is carried out: immediate dental implants, when the implant is placed immediately after tooth extraction to shortening the rehabilitation time and avoiding a second surgery; Recent dental implants, when between extraction and implant elapse between six and eight weeks; delayed implantation, when the dentist makes a regeneration of bone first, then wait for the implant about six months; and mature dental implants, if it has been more than nine months between the two phases.
The dental reconstruction consists of the replacement or repair of teeth, bones or tissue. This treatment is indicated for both the problems of damageThe dental reconstruction consists of the replacement or repair of teeth, bones or tissue. This treatment is indicated for both the problems of damaged and worn to treat TMJ syndrome (a disorder of the jaw joint that causes headache and neck and sometimes a snap chewing) teeth. In some cases where tooth decay is severe we proceed to full mouth reconstruction and cosmetic techniques for it and combine neuromuscular dentistry. Besides, orthodontics can be used to correct the misalignment of teeth and address, then the dental restoration with porcelain veneers, dental crowns, bridges, implants and inlays.
What are immediate loading implants?
Immediate loading implants are those in which the dental implant (screw that replaces the root of the tooth) What are immediate loading implants?
Immediate loading implants are those in which the dental implant (screw that replaces the root of the tooth) and a provisional prosthesis are placed in a single intervention. This technique favors the healing of the bone tissue and the integration of the implants in the bone, which makes it possible to dispense with the period without fixed teeth, with the consequent aesthetic and functional advantages, because the prosthesis resting on the gums does not reduce the discomfort , so that the patient can smile and eat from the first moment.
The provisional dental prosthesis is removed when it has been three to six months since the insertion of the implants. Instead, the dentist will place the final piece that has been made so that it integrates with the rest of the patient's teeth. The intervention is carried out under local anesthesia.
For what type of patients are immediate loading implants indicated?
These types of implants are recommended for those patients who suffer the loss of one, several or all of the teeth or if they suffer a significant deterioration of them. In addition, the patient must meet certain requirements to be able to undergo the procedure. Among them, have an adequate amount and quality of bone, undergo a good periodontal maintenance and also comply with a good gingival and periodontal state of the adjacent teeth.
Immediate loading implants offer multiple advantages for the patient
How is the procedure carried out?
The implants that are placed on the patient can be a unit or a full arch. In the second case you can place between four and six implants that serve as support for a prosthesis.
The fixed prosthesis that is placed initially is provisional, and is done in this way to guarantee a correct osseointegration of the implant in the bone. Once the period has been completed according to the specialist's criteria, usually after the third month, the final fixed prosthesis is placed.
Advantages of immediate loading implants
One of the most important advantages for the patient with the placement of an immediate load implant is that it offers the possibility of continuously carrying the temporary fixed prosthesis without the need to carry the removable prosthesis, which can be annoying. In addition, it offers a progressive adaptation to the definitive prosthesis.
The patient can recover the functionality of their teeth, especially chewing, in addition to improving their phonation and aesthetics.
Some specialists even recommend immediate loading and conscious sedation to replace all the teeth with fixed teeth in just one day.
Teeth whitening is a cosmetic treatment to remove stains and dirt from the teeth in order to recover a whiter and brighter tone of the pieces. This technique does not cause pain to the patient and can be carried out in three different ways. The first is the in-office bleaching, which usually lasts an hour and whose advantage is to get a color change in a short period of time. To do so, the dentist applies protects the gums and teeth peroxide gel of high concentration, and then may use a special laser light that facilitates the penetration of the gel into the enamel. The second treatment is a professional home kit, in which the patient applies a lower concentration of peroxide gel on the teeth, but remains longer in the tooth, can provide better results. The application of the gel takes place in a splint tailored to the teeth by the dentist. Finally, the third system is the home bleaching, in which the patient purchase a simpler kit containing a gel professional kit lower concentration, and that is applied by a single nozzle size. The success of this treatment depends on the time of use.
Veneers and crowns are aesthetic solutions for coating damaged teeth. The veneer is a thin sheet made as placed only on the outer surface of the tooth, attached thereto for all through a type of cement imperceptible to the eye. Its aim is to mask tooth color abnormalities or conceal an alteration in their size or shape. Veneers can be of two types: composite veneers or porcelain veneers. For its part, the dental crown is a kind of tailor-made prosthesis that covers the entire deteriorated, aiming to restore function and aesthetics of the piece natural tooth. These dental caps are indicated in decayed teeth or injury that can not be repaired. They are made of metal, ceramic or porcelain fused to metal.
The dental bone graft is performed in the area Ondontología to increase or preserve bone lacks the amount of bone that is in the area where you want to place a fixed tooth. It is not always necessary to perform a bone graft but in some cases it is essential especially if it is necessary to raise the maxillary sinus, if there is little bone defect or if it has that make it impossible to implant placement.
Bruxism is the action to exert pressure between the teeth and make them slide causing problems in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and wear of the surface of the teeth. The main causes of bruxism are stress, body and closing the mouth position, sleeping habits or the patient's ability to relax. Bruxism evaluation should be done with this in count in the field of dentistry and otolaryngology, since it can cause hearing disorders such as ear infections. The goal of treatment is to reduce pain, prevent tooth decay and reduce teeth grinding full. To relieve pain you can apply ice, avoid eating hard foods like nuts, candy or steaks, drink lots of water, sleep and reduce stress. The damage of the teeth, mouth prosthesis often called splints or appliances apply.
This type of dental caps are made to fit the patient's teeth, and are made of a resin that perfectly blends with the teeth and enamel, and also adapts to them and to the surrounding tissues. The process of placing composite veneers is similar to dental fillings, only the front teeth need a more precise finish, and its placement technique is more accurate.
Tooth decay is a disease that affects the tissues of the teeth, which are destroyed because of the acids plaque. The teeth affected are drilled gradually, causing pain when the infection reaches the nerve. People who are often most affected are children and young people, but can occur at any age.
The cleaning is preventive dental care to maintain good oral hygiene. The neglect of teeth can lead to an excessive accumulation of plaque and tartar in the mouth, which can lead to tooth decay, halitosis or diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis. The dental cleaning involves brushing correctly two or three times a day, flossing, rinsing the mouth with antibacterial liquid and visit the dentist regularly to undergo a professional teeth cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis. Treatment is simple but its intensity depends on the accumulated plaque and tartar. The dentist begins the process of removal of tartar with ultrasound tool; then polish the tooth to clean stains; It plaque then treated with liquid sodium bicarbonate pressure; and finally applies fluoride on teeth.
What is a dental implant maintenance?
The care of dental implants is essential for its proper functioning. If they are not properly fixed as they are natural teeth can develop gum inflammation, infections and loss of bone mass. In addition to the periodontal disease of implants, known as periimplantitis, in which inflammation and infection occurs around. The maintenance of dental implants is the set of care that should be followed by a patient who has been fitted with prostheses on dental implants.
The maintenance begins the same day of the placement of the definitive prostheses, by means of a control to supervise that there is a perfect balance between the teeth of the upper and lower jaw so that the implants are not forced by certain movements of the mouth.
The new teeth do not suffer decay but the gum itself could be infected by the accumulation of plaque and tartar. Therefore, the patient should brush his teeth between two and three times a day, use dental floss, rinse his mouth with antibacterial liquids, undergo regular professional checkups and cleanings and avoid tobacco.
Brushing is one of the key points to follow a good maintenance of dental implants
Recommendations for proper maintenance of dental implants
The first essential recommendation is to go to the dentist annually, since the new teeth do not suffer decay but the gum itself could be infected by the accumulation of plaque and tartar. Therefore, the patient should brush his teeth between two and three times a day, use dental floss, rinse his mouth with antibacterial liquids, undergo regular professional checkups and cleanings and avoid tobacco.
What will be the revisions made by the specialist?
It is essential that the specialist perform periodic x-rays to verify that the level of bone around the implants is adequate. In addition, you should also evaluate the state of the dental restorations around the implant, to verify that they are safe and work properly.
What are zygomatic implants?
Zygomatic implants are those that are placed in the bone of the cheekbone in patients who suffer atrophy in the jawbone, that is, a severe loss of this. They allow good results in terms of function and aesthetics.
How is the intervention developed?
The procedure consists of two parts; In the first of these, a provisional dental prosthesis is placed and, in the second, the definitive prosthesis is placed. The technique is developed so that the implant is inserted into the zygoma or bone of the cheekbone, without the need for bone grafts and always carried out by a specialist in dentistry. Recovery takes between 24 and 48 hours.
Zygomatic implants are ideal for patients with absence of maxillary bone
For what type of patients are they indicated?
It is an appropriate procedure for those patients who suffer a partial or total loss of the maxillary bone, who have lost their teeth at an early age or who have worn dentures for a long period of time and this has affected their facial bone structure. In addition, it is also indicated for patients who have previously suffered periodontal diseases.
Results of zygomatic implants
With these fixed implants, both the ability to chew and the facial aesthetics that is lost with the lack of teeth or maxillary bone are recovered. The process is faster because it does not require osseointegration of the affected area or hospital admission. On the other hand, the post-operative is much more favorable for the patient because the discomfort that you will notice after the intervention will be minimal, thus being able to lead a totally normal daily life. Its success is also greater because the prosthesis that is placed is fixed and is not affected by the loss of teeth or by periodontal diseases.
The root canal is a treatment which involves cutting deep in the tooth when the area is damaged. The therapy is indicated when there is a widespread dental decay or fracture that caused an inflammation or death of the dental pulp. The aim of endodontics is maintaining healthy tooth to be useful for chewing, avoiding having to extract the tooth. The technique involves removing the nerve, clean the root canal and then seal it with a thermoplastic material (gutta percha) and cement or other sealing material. Subsequently, various radiographs are necessary to ensure the accuracy of the result. The term root canal is also used as a synonym for Endodontology, a branch of dentistry that deals with diseases of the dental pulp.
Fluoridation is the application of fluoride to prevent tooth decay because fluoride is an element that acts as a shield against bacteria glaze. This treatment can be performed by rinsing (mouthwashes), gels, varnishes and toothpastes. Fluoride is toxic in large quantities and therefore should be avoided intake. Patients can use daily toothpastes and mouthwashes low concentration, which is the easiest way to apply the treatment. Furthermore, the technique most commonly used by specialists in the query is the gel which is deposited into molds adapted to the patient's teeth for a maximum of four minutes. The duration of the process, the dentist will place a vacuum cleaner to prevent the patient accidentally swallow some gel. On completion, the individual should spit to remove excess gel preventing ingestion.
The teeth included are those who keep erupting in the mouth, ie, remaining inside the bone part or in full. Usually it refers to wisdom teeth, also called third molars, which are between 17 and 25 years old. Its appearance can cause severe discomfort and infection, so in most cases surgery is required. Wisdom teeth are easier to remove when the patient is young, because their roots are not fully formed and there is less risk of damage to nerves or other nearby structures. No need to wait for the wisdom teeth are troublesome to carry out extraction, since their early exit promotes better results. The operation is performed under local anesthesia, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, as recommended by the oral or maxillofacial surgeon.
The smile design (CAD-CAM) is the application of computer technology for the design and manufacture of dentures. The computer controlled dental treatments are also used for diagnosis and implant surgery, making minimally invasive. Using software, the dentist can plan and create dental splints as with better materials. Furthermore, the design of the CAD-CAM smile helps reduce production costs, reduce manufacturing time crowns, veneers or bridges and the number of office visits. The CAD-CAM system consists of three phases: data digitization or scanning of the part to restore computer graphics of the structure of the prosthesis (CAD) and manufacturing by a robot of the same (CAM). In the field of surgery, the technology allows for better planning, simulating the operation and provide the results of the intervention before testing.
