Keep checking your teeth periodically and do not wait until pain appears to avoid complications. Do not take any strong sedatives or painkillers before your visit to the dental clinic. Always start with treating minor dental problems, then the most difficult and difficult until you get used to the working atmosphere in the clinic and finally tell your doctor that you are afraid of dental treatment.
Keep brushing your teeth twice a day, follow the regular visit to the dentist, use a mouthwash rich in fluoride, reduce your use of sugars and acidic juices as much as possible and finally you can benefit from fluoride sessions or even preventive fillings.
Most toothpastes are similar in active ingredient and concentration, which is fluoride, so the type of toothpaste will not differentiate much, but the method of cleaning and the type of brush are the main factor in the health of cleaning teeth, as it is always recommended to use a soft toothbrush with a small head and high quality and it is recommended to consult a specialist to review the correct method of brushing teeth.
In some cases of sensitive teeth, it is recommended to use Sensodyne toothpaste specifically because it contains an active substance that reduces tooth sensitivity.
Replacing the missing teeth with implants or fixtures is very important to prevent the resorption of the jaw bones and also to prevent tilting of the adjacent teeth because the most popular medical rule is “the disuse atrophy”, so the jaw bones resorb to atrophy with tooth extraction, and this gives the face the appearance of aging.
There are many products and recipes for teeth whitening, but the advice is not to use these products or recipes except before referring to a specialist doctor, given that most of these recipes harm the teeth and lead to the wear of the enamel layer.
The best method is professional teeth whitening at a dentist.
Tooth sensitivity occurs due to one of these reasons:
Receding gums, erosion of the enamel layer due to the use of acidic juices and carbonated water, tooth fracture as a result of continuous bruxism during sleep and finally due to repeated teeth whitening more than once.
If you suffer from tooth sensitivity, we recommend that you visit a specialist dentist and benefit from fluoride sessions.
Bad breath may be due to gum infections, cracks in the tongue, or a broken tooth or tooth, but please note that in many cases, bad breath is due to other organic diseases such as diabetes, kidney disease, stomach ulcers or nasal infections.
Of course, it is important and indispensable as the regular brush does not reach between the teeth and food residues and bacteria remain stuck between them, so you must use dental floss at least once a day to clean these parts.
You should visit the dentist periodically for a check-up and cleaning of the teeth at intervals ranging from 6 months to two years, depending on the condition of each person, and also a visit to the dentist should be made if any pain is felt or noticed any changes in the shape or color of the gums or tissues surrounding the teeth.
Preventive fillings are the best thing that you can do to prevent tooth decay, as the specialist dentist puts dental filling materials in the cavities and deep fissures in the molars or teeth, which the doctor expects the occurrence of caries, and thus we prevent the occurrence of caries from the ground up and preventive fillings are done without digging the tooth and without anesthesia.
Certainly, because cigarette smoking contains nicotine smoke, which reduces blood flow to the gums, it increases gum inflammation, causes bad blood odor, causes stains on the teeth, and finally cigarettes increase the risk of oral cancer.
Questions about dental implants
Dental implants are the best solution to replace lost teeth, it is a titanium rod that is placed in the jawbone, and a porcelain or zircon crown is installed over the rod after it is fused to the jawbone.
With proper planning and 3D-ray technology, the implant is placed completely safely without any complications or problems except for some minor surgical complications such as moderate pain or swelling that may last for a maximum of two days. Teeth are not drilled when replacing the teeth with implants, and thus are they completely safe for neighboring teeth.
We can put dental implants starting from the age of 18 years and there are no upper age limit as dental implants can be done at any later age, provided that the patient’s general health status is reviewed.
If diabetes is irregular, it affects almost everything inside the human body, including the gums and jawbones. Therefore, irregular diabetes reduces the attachment of the implant to the jawbone.
Diabetics are advised to do a cumulative sugar analysis before embarking on dental implants, and the cumulative sugar rate should not exceed 8.
In ideal circumstances, the success rate of dental implants reaches 100%, but there are factors that affect the success rates, such as diabetes, smoking and blood diseases.
The average price of dental implants is 5500 pounds for one implant, and the price may increase in the event of a need for bone grafting, and of course there are other types at different prices.
You can install a complete dental jaw consisting of 12 to 14 teeth on 4 implants in ideal conditions, and the number increases to 6 or 8 implants depending on the condition of the jawbones, the state of the inter jaws and the age of the patient.
Dental prostheses, or known as a bridge or a dental bridge, are the ancient way to compensate for the missing teeth, as the teeth adjacent to the missing tooth are drilled and then a crown is made on them after that to install a false tooth in place of the missing tooth and one of the most important disadvantages of dental bridges is that we need to reduce/drill the teeth, which may cause the tooth nerve to be affected. Or the destruction of the tooth in the long run.
In the case of dental implants, the teeth are not filed, and the implant is placed directly in the jawbone.
This is done by making three-dimensional rays to find out the density of the jawbone and the dimensions of the bone to choose the appropriate implant.
Certainly. As a center specializing in implantation and orthodontics, all possibilities are available for the work of dental implants in the shortest time and with the least number of visits to the radiology centers.
By visiting the dentist regularly and brushing the teeth twice a day.
In most cases, a written guarantee is provided by the center for life on dental implants, provided that the care instructions and periodic visits are adhered to.
Questions about orthodontics
The appropriate age for most orthodontic cases starts from 11 years for boys and girls, but in some cases, orthodontics must be started at a younger age of up to 8 years.
There is no upper age limit.
There are no actual disadvantages or risks to orthodontics in case of maintaining oral and dental health care, but in some cases of neglect and because of the accumulation of food debris around the braces, this causes gum infections and tooth decay in a few cases.
Orthodontics is a complex and long process, and the orthodontic process may last from one to 4 years, depending on the degree of difficulty of the case. The average period is two years and increases in cases of impacted canines or buried teeth.
Many orthodontic cases do not require a molar extraction, but also it should be noted that cases of protruding teeth, crowding teeth and open bite cases require in most cases teeth extraction.
Of course, In most cases, the appearance of the face improves, especially in cases of protrusion of the upper jaw.
In some very few and complex cases, it is impossible to straighten the teeth with the regular braces, as in such case the problem is in the bones of one of the jaws, and in these few cases we need to adjust the position of the jawbones through surgical orthodontics.
Orthodontics is painless, but the patient feels tightness and pressure on the braces after each visit to tighten the braces and last for two days.
braces are not painful, but the patient feels some pressure on the teeth or a headache, and to reduce the feeling of pain, it is advised to take analgesics, drink more fluids, and ice cream, and reduce pressure on the teeth.
Yes, you can, taking this into account when discussing the treatment plan with the specialist, knowing that the movement of dental bridges is very difficult during orthodontics.
This is not recommended, as braces will increase the severity of caries, the severity of inflammation, and may cause discoloration of the teeth.
Questions about Hollywood smile
Dental veneers are Emax lenses with a thickness of no more than half a mm and are affixed to the teeth for the purpose of cosmetic, treatment of minor tooth deformities or changing the color of the teeth.
In most cases, we do not need to file the teeth, we only need to roughen the surface of the tooth.
Of course not, veneers are not suitable for cases of large deformities, crowding teeth and protruding teeth, as these cases need to make dental braces before installing the veneers.
