PF Para tu Dentista

No hay forma de evitar la necesidad de moverse alrededor de los dientes diariamente con hilo dental. Limpia la comida y la placa entre los dientes y debajo de la línea de las encías. Si no lo hace, la placa se endurece en sarro, que forma cuñas y ensancha el espacio entre los dientes y las encías, causando bolsas.

Con el tiempo, las encías se separan y los dientes se aflojan.

El hilo dental encerado o no encerado hará el trabajo. Usar selecciones de hilo dental o cepillos interdentales es otra opción fácil.

Los enjuagues bucales para la protección de la cavidad, la sensibilidad y el aliento fresco pueden ayudar cuando los usa con cepillado y uso de hilo dental regularmente, pero no en lugar de limpiezas diarias. Después de su primera consulta en nuestra clínica dental en Marbella, puedo recomendar el mejor tipo para usted.

Algunas personas necesitan enjuagues dos veces al día para la salud de las encías o lavados sin alcohol para la boca seca.

Los niños menores de 6 años no deben usar enjuague bucal para evitar la posibilidad de que se lo traguen.

Visite nuestra clínica dental de Marbella si tiene alguno de estos problemas o ve que su hijo tiene problemas para masticar o se queja de dolor:

  • Úlceras de boca
  • Dolor de mandibula
  • Rojez
  • Cara hinchada o encías
  • Sensibilidad dental
  • Dientes rotos
  • Boca seca
  • Sangrado de las encías
  • Mal aliento o mal sabor de boca.
  • Ser revisado de inmediato previene problemas e infecciones más graves.

Los exámenes regulares ayudan a detectar problemas temprano para evitar tratamientos más grandes y costosos más adelante. Un higienista dental comenzará limpiando la acumulación de sus dientes. Luego, el dentista buscará puntos en las superficies y cerca de la línea de las encías con herramientas especiales.

Si ha pasado un tiempo entre citas, es posible que tenga algunas áreas doloridas y sensibles. Debe hacerse un examen cada 6 meses, o con mayor frecuencia si su dentista lo recomienda. Asegúrese de que su dentista lo haga sentir cómodo y le diga qué esperar. A menudo, el temor de ver al dentista se convierte en un gran alivio cuando termina la visita y tiene un plan de atención
establecido. Ser positivo como padre puede ayudar a sus hijos a superar cualquiera de sus miedos.

Los expertos médicos y dentales estudian el uso de rayos X y establecen límites para su seguridad. En Miclinik tomamos la menor cantidad posible.

Espere obtenerlos durante un primer examen después de no ver a un dentista por un tiempo. Esto ayuda a verificar la salud de los dientes y las encías. Si tiene enfermedad de las encías, el dentista puede querer imágenes cada 6 meses. Para los chequeos regulares, se realiza aproximadamente cada 2 años, según el plan de su dentista.

A los niños se les realizan más radiografías que a los adultos porque sus dientes están cambiando y porque tienen caries más fácilmente.

El flúor ayuda a fortalecer los dientes y evita la caries. Los niños deben usar pasta dental con flúor para cepillarse, teniendo cuidado de no tragarla.

Los adultos también se benefician del uso de flúor para proteger sus dientes.

Las caries se rompen a través de la superficie del esmalte de los dientes y probablemente se agranden a menos que las cierre con empastes.

En Miclinik en Marbella adormecerá tu boca antes de perforar alrededor de la cavidad para prepararla. Una combinación de materiales fuertes o una mezcla blanca llamada compuesto entra en la cavidad suave y luego se endurece a medida que se seca. Puede sentir dolor o presión al recibir la inyección de adormecimiento y durante la perforación.

Una vez establecidos, los empastes pueden durar mucho tiempo pero deben reemplazarse si se rompen o desgastan.

Los selladores protegen contra las caries que pueden formarse en los pequeños agujeros y grietas naturales en el exterior de los dientes. Los niños de entre 6 y 12 años se benefician al pintar y endurecer los selladores en las superficies de masticación de sus dientes posteriores o molares.

Los adultos también pueden obtener selladores para proteger los dientes que no tienen empastes. Los dentistas o asistentes dentales ponen selladores en una visita al consultorio, y es indoloro.

Duran alrededor de 2-4 años.

Las tiendas venden muchos productos de blanqueamiento, y puede obtener geles y bandejas para llevar a casa de su dentista, pero ninguno es tan fuerte como los procedimientos realizados en un consultorio dental.

Si desea probar un blanqueador de venta libre, busque uno con un sello ADA.

Consulte con su dentista para obtener asesoramiento antes de comprar, especialmente si tiene trabajo dental o manchas oscuras. Y no sigas usándolos, o podrías dañar tus dientes.

Las tapas y coronas cubren los dientes problemáticos rodeándolos de un material que parece un diente real. Utilizan la raíz y el interior del diente como base para construir, luego se unen con cemento especial.

Las carillas y las uniones mejoran su sonrisa al pegar una capa de materiales más suaves y blancos como la porcelana o la resina al diente natural.

Haga una cita conmigo en mi clínica dental de Marbella sobre qué solución es la adecuada para usted.

Sí, los dulces y los alimentos con ácido, como los dulces y los refrescos, podrían adherirse a los dientes y provocar caries. Fumar y masticar tabaco puede causar cáncer oral y enfermedad de las encías.

Si bien los dientes son lo suficientemente fuertes como para masticar hielo y abrir paquetes, esto puede romperlos y estresar las mandíbulas. Apretar o rechinar los dientes cuando está estresado puede romperlos.

Morderse las uñas es otro mal hábito. Saca la mandíbula de su posición y cambia la forma en que se ajustan los dientes.

¡Hazlo divertido! Si le entusiasma cepillarse los dientes, sus hijos también lo estarán. Los niños quieren hacer las cosas que hacen sus padres. Si sus hijos lo ven cepillarse los dientes y mostrar buenos hábitos dentales, lo seguirán. Pregúntele a su dentista en MiClinik en Marbella sobre otras formas creativas de hacer que los niños se cepillen los dientes.

Hacer que sus hijos se cepillen comienza con llevarlos al dentista a una edad temprana. Todos los niños deben ser vistos antes de su primer cumpleaños o 6 meses después de la erupción del
primer diente.

Always spend two to three minutes brushing your teeth. It takes that long to get rid of the bacteria that destroy tooth enamel. Do not brush too hard. It takes very little pressure to remove bacteria and plaque. Floss at least once a day. Flossing is the only way to get bacteria from between your teeth.

Watch the sugar you eat. There is sugar in candy, fruits, crackers and chips. These are the foods that the bacteria in your mouth like best. Be mindful of foods like raisins and peanut butter that stick to your teeth. They can provide a constant supply for the bacteria eating into your teeth. Try to minimize the times during the day when sweet items are eaten and brush your teeth afterwards.

If you cannot brush after a meal, rinse your mouth with water – which can help to remove food from your teeth. Chewing sugarless gum after a meal can also help. Chewing deskulates the flow of your saliva which acts as a natural plaque-fighting substance. And do not forget your regular dental visits.

Good dental habits will go a long way toward a no-cavity visit.

Oral piercing is a widely accepted form of self-expression, and that includes piercings in the mouth.

However, the potential problems from piercings are numerous. Some symptoms after a piercing include pain, swelling, infection, drooling, taste loss, scarring, chipped teeth, tooth loss, and an increased flow of saliva, none of which are particularly pleasant.

Tongue piercing can also cause excessive bleeding. If you’re thinking of placing a piercing in or around your mouth, talk to your dentist at MiClink in Marbella first. If you already have piercings and are having problems, see us right away.

  • Oral injuries are often painful, and should be treated by a dentist as soon as possible. If you have
    knocked out a tooth, these tips may be able to save it:
    • Rinse, do not scrub, the tooth to remove dirt or debris
    • Place the clean tooth in your mouth between your cheek and gum or under your tongue
    • Do not attempt to replace the tooth into the socket as this could cause further damage
    • Get to the dentist. Successful re-implantation is possible only when treatment is performed promptly
    • If it is not possible to store the tooth in the mouth of the injured person, wrap the tooth in a clean cloth or gauze and immerse it in milk.

When you are asleep, production in your mouth decreases. Since your saliva is the mouths natural mouthwash, most people experience morning breath.

Bacteria found on teeth in the crevices and on the taste buds of the tongue, break down the food particles, which produce sulfur compounds. It is actually these sulfur compounds which give our breath a bad odor. During the day, your saliva helps to wash away bacteria and food particles. Your saliva also helps to dissolve the foul smelling sulfur compounds.

Chronic, long-term mouth odor can be a sign of more serious illness. Make an appointment at MiClinik Marbella if this is a concern.

Sensitivity toothpaste, which contains strontium chloride or potassium nitrate are very effective in treating sensitive teeth.

After a few weeks of use, you may notice a decrease in sensitivity. Highly acidic foods such as oranges, grapefruits and lemons, as well as tea and soda can increase tooth sensitivity, and work against sensitivity toothpaste. If you do not get relief by brushing gently and using desensitizing toothpaste, come see us.

There are special compounds that can be applied in-office to the roots of your tooth to reduce – if not eliminate – the sensitivity. High-fluoride containing home care products can also be recommended to help reduce tooth sensitivity.

Ask the friendly staff at Mi Clinik Marbella for more information on sensitive teeth.

Periodontal disease is inflammation and infection of the gums and supporting bone structure, which if left untreated, can cause permanent jaw bone destruction and possible tooth loss.

Untreated periodontal disease has been linked to increased risk for conditions such as heart disease, stroke, low birth weight babies, pre-term delivery, respiratory disease, and prostate cancer. An advanced stage of periodontal disease exhibits inflamed gums pulling away from your bone and teeth.

Other signs of periodontal disease include:

  • Bad breath
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Loose teeth or teeth that have moved
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Plus coming from around the teeth
  • Pain when chewing
  • Tender gums
  • Bleeding gums

Treatment of early periodontal disease can be performed in-office. However, advanced stages may require surgery.

Periodontal disease can be prevented and treated successfully by seeing your dentist and dental hygienist regularly and following recommended care plans.

Like other investments, if you whiten your teeth, the length of time you can expect it to last will vary. If you smoke, drink red wine or coffee, or consume other acid-containing foods, your bright smile may begin to yellow more quickly than you expect.

In general, a teeth whitening procedure can last up to a few years. And even though the results can fade, occasional touch-ups can be done to regain luster.

Ask the experienced staff at our Marbella Dental Clinic about the long-term benefits of teeth whitening.

Commercial whitening toothpastes vary greatly in their ability to whiten teeth. They work by removing surface stains from the teeth with the use of mild abrasives. However, unlike professional whitening, some whitening toothpastes do not alter the intrinsic color of the teeth.

Toothpastes that are effective in removing stains can also destroy tooth enamel in the process. These toothpastes use harsh abrasives. With repeated use, harsh abrasives begin to damage tooth enamel and can contribute to increased tooth sensitivity.

If you would like to try a whitening toothpaste, consult with your dentist at MiClinik first.

The exact cause of canker sores is unknown. Some factors may include genetics, allergies, stress, and vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Trauma to the inside of the mouth can result in the development of canker sores. Ill-fitting dentures or braces, toothbrush trauma from brushing too hard, or biting your cheek, may produce canker sores. Certain foods may also be a factor.

Citrus or acidic fruits and vegetables can trigger a canker sore or make the problem worse. Foods like chips, pretzels and hard candies have sharp edges that can nick and injure the soft tissue of the mouth.

To treat a canker sore, rinse your mouth with antimicrobial mouthwash or warm water and salt.

Over the counter treatments are also available. If the canker sore is present longer than two weeks, see your MiClinik dentist.

Many factors work to destroy the naturally white smile you were born with.

Tobacco, certain foods, and certain drinks actually stain teeth. These substances continually work on our teeth causing our white smile to gradually fade.

Hot coffee and tea are especially hazardous to your smile because they change the temperature of teeth. This temperature change – hot and cold cycling – causes the teeth to expand and contract allowing stains to penetrate the teeth.

Cutting down on coffee and tea can go a long way to creating a great smile. Foods that are slightly acidic are also dangerous to your white smile. These foods open up the pores of the tooth enamel allowing stains to move more easily into the tooth.

We can help you with more tips on keeping a white smile at the MiClinik Dental Practice in Guadalmina.

A mouthguard can prevent injuries to your face and teeth. Most people benefit from wearing a mouthguard when playing any sport.

You should wear one whether you are playing professionally or just on weekends. Do what you can to preserve your smile and your health. The best mouthguards are custom-fitted by your dentist. This is especially important if you wear braces or fixed bridgework.

Commercial, ready-made mouthguards can be purchased at most sporting goods stores. They are relatively inexpensive but they are also less effective. In either case, rinse your mouthguard with water or mouthwash after each use. With proper care, it should last for several months.

Ask us which kind of mouthguard you should use during your next visit at MiClinik.

Research today suggests a link between gum disease and diabetes.

Research has established that people with diabetes are more prone to gum disease. If blood glucose levels are poorly controlled you may be more likely to develop gum disease and could potentially lose teeth. Like all infections, gum disease can be a factor in causing blood sugar levels to rise and make diabetes harder to control.

Be sure to see your dentist regularly for check-ups and follow home care recommendations.

If you notice other conditions such as dry mouth or bleeding gums, be sure to talk with your dentist at the MiClinik dental practice in Marbella. And don’t forget to mention any changes in medications.

About half of women who are pregnant experience a condition called pregnancy gingivitis.

This condition can be uncomfortable and cause swelling, bleeding, redness or tenderness in the gum tissue. A more advanced oral health condition called periodontal disease (a serious gum infection that destroys attachment fibers and supporting bone that hold teeth in the mouth) may affect the health of your baby. Studies have shown a relationship between periodontal disease and preterm, low birth-weight babies.

In fact, pregnant women with periodontal disease may be seven times more likely to have a baby that’s born too early and too small. The likely culprit is a labor-inducing chemical found in oral bacteria called prostaglandin. Very high levels of prostaglandin are found in women with severe cases of periodontal disease.

Visits to the dentist include more than just "checking teeth." While patients who wear dentures no longer have to worry about dental decay, they may have concerns with ill fitting appliances or mouth sores to name a few. Annual visits to the dentist (or sooner if soreness is present) is recommended.

During these visits, an oral cancer screening and head and neck exam will be performed as well as an evaluation of the fit or need for replacement of the existing appliances.

Regular visits can help you to avoid more complicated problems down the road.
