Preventive dental health
Oral hygiene advices
We need to promote the method. The best way to remember sector is to always follow the same pattern and this manner. It must be made 1 per day. The teeth are cleaned one after another. For each dental arch, brushing starts with the outside of the last tooth on one side and ends on the inner side of the same tooth on the same side. For reasons of efficiency (gain automatic), brushing must be done in the same way each time:
1. It must be made 2 to 3 times a day;
2. Brushing mouth is ajar
3. It must, in any case, rinse the mouth after brushing the risk of losing the benefit of fluoride in toothpaste;
4. Always red to white. The jaws are processed one after another, brushing starts with the last tooth on one side and ends on the opposite side. For reasons of efficiency (gain automatic), brushing must be done in the same way each time:
1. upper jaw, cleaning occusales side (the side which chews): The brush is raised at the last molars straight and moves to the left last molars conducting movements back and forth from front to rear (amplitude equivalent to two teeth, make the movement three or four times a group of two teeth),
2. Upper jaw, cleaning sides: plays later, the brush is laid across the gums and teeth; the wrist turns to perform a movement of roll down. The gesture is repeated three or four times. Note that we still leads the gum to the tooth (from red to white) to hunt the deposit plaque that forms the crown of the tooth and between teeth (the reverse movement back tabling this). Then we go to the following teeth to finish on the opposite side. Arriving at the opposite side, the brush goes to the palace and performs the same gesture in closing its starting point. Cleaning or Palatine sides lingual incisors is tooth by tooth, taking his brush vertically (the curvature of the arch does not allow for effective action, horizontal brush)
3. Same for the lower jaw.
Sealants des puits et des fissures des dents
Is it happening to your child to eat foods such as a sticky chocolate biscuit and it is difficult to dislodge crumbs paths teeth at the back of the mouth? This indicates that it has teeth “hollow” and the need to protect their teeth with a sink and sealing cracks.
This treatment is to clean the grooves of the tooth without anesthesia
and then apply a protective varnish. Thus, the surface of the jaw teeth will be smooth and it will be easier to brush.
The opportunity to have its caries teeth will be reduced because of caries 80% of children are found on teeth that have deep furrows.
Adults can also benefit from this treatment. Sealants are often applied on the teeth of children as soon as the first molars and premolars of adults appearing in the mouth (to age 6 or 7 years). As against, it is possible to do this treatment at any age.
It should therefore be given as a supplement to the child throughout the training period of teeth, preventing tooth decay.
Later it was made by local toothpaste and other products for oral use.
What is fluorosis?
Fluoride can be toxic if taken in excess. It means that a person has too much fluoride in her body. People who make fluoride have white spots on teeth. These stains can discolour or tarnish.
In general, fluoride manifests itself in the first few years of life, during the formation of teeth.
Dry mouth syndrome
According to studies on sports medicine and dental, almost all physical activity not only energetic and contact sports, can cause accidents teeth, lips, the cheeks, tongue and jaw.
A fall, collision or contact slightly rude can damage one or more teeth. The loss of tooth represents a considerable achievement. No restoration or prosthesis is as comfortable and durable than the natural teeth. In addition, dental treatment may in the long term, constitute a significant financial investment since complications can still occur several years after trauma. Some sports are more at risk than others, including boxing, wrestling, soccer, water polo, basketball and weightlifting. Those who practice these sports should always wear a mouthguard.
This device does not protect any event, but it significantly reduces the risk and severity of shocks on the mouth and teeth and soft tissue injuries to the mouth. There is also evidence that serves as a buffer against more serious injuries such as concussion or fracture of the jaw.
Mouth guards on the market can be divided into two groups: Those that are prefabricated, more or less adjustable and those how are custom-made pieces by a dentist.
In addition, a mouthguard is always very stable in the mouth and it does not interfere with breathing or speech impairments. We tailor make the mouthguard that best suits your needs, as the sport you practice and frequency of your workout.
Oral health and pregnancy
Pregnancy causes physical changes that may have significant effects on oral health of the mother. Under the effect of new hormones, it may have signs of fatigue, nausea and vomiting in the first trimester of pregnancy, which usually fade thereafter. It may also have an excessive appetite for unusual dishes, which increases the risk of developing cavities. The application of topical fluoride toothpaste with fluoride is much more efficient for the mother and less risk to the foetus.
In addition to increasing appetite, hormonal changes make the gingival tissue susceptible to inflammation, causing an acute gingival often called pregnancy gingivitis. This situation returns to normal after delivery. In early pregnancy and even before, that if it was scheduled, it is recommended that pregnant women to make a visit for teeth cleaning and scaling, and maintain a good oral hygiene thereafter.
It must warn of his condition. We do not generally make Radiography except in cases of extreme necessity with lead apron because the foetus is sensitive to radiation. Other types of dental treatment will be preferably in the second trimester of pregnancy. Local anaesthesia administered during a dental treatment is safe for the foetus, regardless of the trimester of pregnancy.
However, certain medications can cause foetal malformations. It is therefore important to consult a doctor before taking any medicine.
