The power of a smile is huge. However, there are times when we can be ashamed or even afraid to smile. Sometimes, this goes beyond oral health, since what prevents us from smiling is a problem of dental aesthetics.

Let us check out other dental services are available:

Orthodontics:

There are different types of treatments in orthodontics. The difference between these orthodontic techniques is that sides of the tooth are placed.

  • Conventional orthodontics (metal brackets).
  • Invisible or aesthetic orthodontics (sapphire or porcelain brackets).
  • Lingual orthodontics.

Why is orthodontics necessary?

Orthodontics is necessary mainly to make our teeth suffer less and avoid other dental problems in the future, beyond merely aesthetic issues.

The main objective of the treatment is to improve the oral health of the patient. By having well-positioned teeth, it is much easier to cleanse with what prevent cavities and gum problems.

Root Canal Treatment (Endodontics):

Endodontics should be used when the pulp, which is a small and thread-like tissue in the center of the tooth is damaged. This occurs, normally due to an infection. When it happens, this pulp must be extracted and it is necessary to clean and fill the space that is inside the tooth, the root canals.

Why do you have to do a root canal?

Infection of the pulp of the tooth is a very difficult disease to detect, even in the specialist’s offices. It can be motivated by other problems such as an injury to the tooth, small breaks, deep decay or even the performance of other invasive dental treatments that may have affected one of the teeth.

Periodontitis:

With this treatment, you can solve periodontal diseases such as gingivitis or pyorrhea.

Periodontal disease is a bacterial infection that destroys the supporting tissues of the teeth (gum, periodontal ligament, and bone).

In its initial version, it is presented as gingivitis but when it is not treated it is commonly known as pyorrhea.

Periodontal disease is caused by a genetic predisposition or by germs in the mouth.

What symptoms does Pyorrhea have?

Normally, only the symptoms are appreciated when the disease is very advanced since the gums bleed and the teeth move. For this reason, we recommend that you consult the specialist before any change in your gums, bleeding in the brushing or any alteration in your oral cavity.

When the patient goes dental clinic with periodontitis or pyorrhea, they manage to stop the disease, but the lost bone does not recover. That is why early diagnosis is essential and it should start treatment quickly to avoid having to perform a dental implant. In addition, the treatment for pyorrhea is NOT painful.

We recommend going to the dentist for any suspicion, discomfort or symptom of oral disease. A regular dental check up helps to keep your teeth and gums healthy.

A visit in time can be essential to help you achieve optimal dental health and provides an advantage that is lost if you do not go regularly to check your mouth and the problem becomes serious.
