7 damage to your health for a cracked tooth

Back tooth pain

Do not have the habit of visiting the dentist can cause health complications that could be treated previously.

An important part of our physical being is oral health. However, the attention that is given is not a common practice, as the Mexican Dental Association confirms that only 15% of Mexicans visit the dentist every six months.

Do not have the habit of visiting the dentist can cause health complications for problems that could be treated effectively and in a timely manner.

It is common that happens unexpectedly biting a solid object like a bone or a seed or when we bite with too much pressure on our jaw, we can cause fracture of a molar.

Cracked tooth

Dominican Dental Center claims another common cause of carious teeth is cracked teeth or multiple restorations injuries, since they have not the same amount of enamel making them more fragile.

Cracked tooth

Patient age is also a risk factor, because over time the tissues that make up the tooth lose elasticity, causing fracture of the piece when you bite something hard.

Habits such as biting pencils, ice, fingernails, can also be causes of fractures.

Bad habits

Here are some consequences of having a tooth uncovered:

  1. Severe pain. It can be triggered by neglecting your teeth, because if you leave them cracked a long time, food can build up and cause a lot of pain by decay, in addition to possible infections.
  2. Infections. According to the National Institute of Health in the United States, they can occur when a tooth is broken or chipped, allowing bacterial entry into and the infection can spread from the root to the jawbone.
  3. Caries. This epidemiological problem may be caused by a fractured tooth. Ideally remove the decay and rebuild the part. If left untreated, it reaches the dental pulp and then into the bloodstream with the ability to infect other organs, says Dominican Dental Center.
  4. Loss of the piece. By leaving uncovered a tooth or tooth decay can trigger infections that ultimately lead to extract the tooth. In losing can trigger aesthetic and functional problems such as overloading other parts, accumulation of food in the empty space or periodontal disease.
  5. Heart problems. Research at the School of Medicine Harvard claim that people with periodontal disease (gum) increase 72% the risk of heart problems compared to those who maintain healthy teeth.
  6. Tooth sensitivity. This is a consequence of having a tooth uncovered. The International Association for the Study of Pain says this is a painful sensation that responds to external stimuli, including as food and cold, hot, sour or sweet drinks.
  7. Bad smell of mouth. According to the Barcelona Clinic Propdental infection and bacteria buildup on teeth bites cause bad breath.

In addition to these conditions, the lacks of a tooth also cause discomfort when eating, talking imbalance, besides aesthetic problems in the face, says Stomatology Health Promotion IMSS, Maria Trinidad Gomez Lepe.

Injuries and the consequences of having a tooth or teeth in poor condition should be treated as soon as possible, because there can be complications for the patient’s overall health.

Teeth Whitening in Cancun Mexico, The Benefits of Zoom!

Teeth Whitening Cancun

 

Teeth whitening procedures are in high demand among patients, and there are numerous treatments available to achieve aesthetically pleasing results. Choosing to visit the dentist for tooth whitening is the best way to select a procedure that will work for the unique qualities of your smile and provide safe, effective treatment; working with your dentist is also the only way to access the benefits of the Zoom! procedure. Here is a closer look at what Zoom! Whitening has to offer:

Safe whitening of the teeth: Zoom! works using a UV light to unlock the effects of a specially formulated whitening gel that is applied to the teeth; the procedure also includes steps to ensure the gums are always fully protected. The whitening solution is not so strong that it damages the tooth enamel, but still delivers optimal whitening effects with the help of UV light.

Results in just one visit: Many tooth whitening procedures take multiple treatment sessions to give patients the results they desire. Zoom! is different because it is designed to dramatically improve the teeth, making them more radiant in one visit to the dentist that lasts for only an hour. Plus, the results from one session of Zoom! are typically better than the end result of longer-term treatments. On average, Zoom! yields an improvement of eight shades whiter than before treatment.

Long-lasting whitening: Zoom! uses a specialized chemical formula that penetrates deeper into the teeth than other whitening solutions, so the teeth remain white and bright long after the initial treatment.

Compare Zoom! Whitening to your other professional treatment options by scheduling a consultation with the dentists of Sunset Dental Cancun and visit their website www.sunsetdentalcancun.com or call 0052 998 1768084.

What Does Your Smile Say About You?

SUNSET SMILE

What Does Your Smile Say About You?

Want  to succeed in business, fill up your social calendar, and get more romance into your life? One secret may be in your smile.

Your smile — simple, straightforward, and most important, sincere — can attract more than admiring looks. A smiling face tells people that you’re an outgoing and intelligent person worth getting to know.

“When someone has a big smile, it shows they’re willing to open up and expose a part of themselves,” says Pamela McClain, DDS, president of the American Academy of Periodontology. Over the long term, smiling can benefit your health, perception at work, social life, and romantic status. With that much at stake, it’s worthwhile to discover what your smile is saying about you — and how to interpret the smiles flashed your way.

Smiling Eyes Aren’t Just for the Irish

Many Americans look at the mouth to judge a person’s mood, but people smile for all sorts of reasons: anger, fear, embarrassment, confusion, to deceive. It’s really your eyes that give you away.

The muscles around the eyes can’t be forced to look happy. When people smile for real, their cheeks rise and the skin around their eyes bunches up. In fact, in certain countries where suppressing emotion is a cultural norm, people look more at each other’s eyes to gauge emotion.

A Smile Makes You Look Successful

A smile conveys confidence and professionalism,” says Lily T. Garcia, DDS, DDS, MS, FACP, president of the American College of Prosthodontists. People who project a positive outlook are generally more open and flexible. They tend to cope better with challenges than people who are withdrawn and unsmiling.

A study that followed a group of women for 30 years shows the lifetime benefits of smiling. The women who displayed genuinely happy smiles in their college yearbook photos went on to have happier marriages and greater wellbeing.

In the same study, a group of strangers looked at the college photos and reported their assumptions about the women’s personalities. The women who smiled were judged to be more positive and competent than those who didn’t.

Turn that Frown Upside Down

Want to be happy? Just smile. Believe it or not, forcing yourself to smile can actually make you happier.

Paul Ekman, PhD, a psychologist who is an expert in facial expressions, taught himself to arrange the muscles in his face to make certain expressions. To his surprise, he found himself feeling the emotions that he was mimicking. When he raised his cheeks, parted his lips, and turned the corners of his mouth up, he felt happier.

Ekman and his research partner went on to do a study of college students to see if they, too, would feel happier by making themselves smile. The researchers measured the students’ brain activity while the students followed instructions to smile using the muscles in their cheeks and around their mouths.

Whether the students smiled spontaneously or on purpose, the activity in their brains was virtually the same. They felt happy.

Smile Anxiety

Chipped or missing teeth, fillings, or discolored teeth are unveiled when your lips part to smile – so some people simply avoid it.

If you find yourself wanting to cover up your smile, you could be holding yourself back in more ways than you realize. “Life is much more challenging for people who are so self-conscious about their teeth they don’t want to smile,” McClain says. Make a date with your dentist to talk about your concerns and potential corrections. Many dental problems can be fixed.

DENTAL HEALTH AND BRIDGES CANCUN MEXICO

Dental Bridge with Sunset Dental Cancun

Dental Bridge with Sunset Dental Cancun

Dental bridges literally bridge the gap created by one or more missing teeth.

A bridge is made up of two crowns for the teeth on either side of the gap — these two anchoring teeth are called abutment teeth — and a false tooth/teeth in between. These false teeth are called pontics and can be made from gold, alloys, porcelain, or a combination of these materials. Dental bridges are supported by natural teeth or implants.

What Are the Benefits of Dental Bridges?

Bridges can:

What Types of Dental Bridges Are Available?

There are three main types of dental bridges:

  • Traditional bridges involve creating a crown for the tooth or implant on either side of the missing tooth, with a pontic in between. Traditional bridges are the most common type of bridge and are made of either porcelain fused to metal or ceramics.
  • Cantilever bridges are used when there are adjacent teeth on only one side of the missing tooth or teeth.
  • Maryland bonded bridges (also called a resin-bonded bridge or a Maryland bridge) are made of plastic teeth and gums supported by a metal framework. Metal wings on each side of the bridge are bonded to your existing teeth.

 

What Is the Process for Getting a Dental Bridge?

During the first visit for getting a dental bridge, the abutment teeth are prepared. Preparation involves recontouring these teeth by removing a portion of enamel to allow room for a crown to be placed over them. Next, impressions of the teeth are made, which serve as a model from which the bridge, pontic, and crowns will be made by a dental lab. Your dentist will make a temporary bridge to wear to protect the exposed teeth and gums while the bridge is being made.

During the second visit, your temporary bridge will be removed and the new permanent bridge will be checked and adjusted, as necessary, to achieve a proper fit. Multiple visits may be required to check the fit of the metal framework and bite. This is dependent on each individual’s case. If the dental bridge is a fixed (permanent) bridge, your dentist may temporarily cement it in place for a couple of weeks to make sure it is fitting properly. After a couple weeks, the bridge is permanently cemented into place.

How Much Do Dental Bridges Cost?

The cost of dental bridges varies depending on the type of bridge selected and the country in which the procedure is performed. Here at Sunset Dental Cancun a 3 Unit Bridge can cost as little as 1410 usd that includes all work, materials and Temporaries! Dental insurance will typically pay a percentage of the fee depending on the individual dental plan and if needed Sunset Dental Cancun can help fill out any relevant forms for you to get as much money back as possible, While providing x-rays and photos along with receipts etc.

How Long Do Dental Bridges Last?

Dental bridges can last five to 15 years and even longer. With good oral hygiene and regular checkups, it is not unusual for the life span of a fixed bridge to be over 10 years.

Will It Be Difficult to Eat With a Dental Bridge?

Replacing missing teeth with a dental bridge should actually make eating easier. Until you become accustomed to the bridge, eat soft foods that have been cut into small pieces.

Will the Dental Bridge Change How I Speak?

It can be difficult to speak clearly when teeth are missing. Wearing a dental bridge with the anterior teeth in their proper relationship will help you speak properly.

How Do I Care for a Bridge?

It is important to keep remaining teeth healthy and strong as the success of the bridge (depending on the type selected) depends on the solid foundation offered by the surrounding teeth. Brushing twice a day and flossing daily helps prevent tooth decay and gum disease that can lead to tooth loss. Your dentist or dental hygienist can demonstrate how to properly brush and floss teeth. Keeping a regular cleaning schedule will help diagnose problems at an early stage when treatment has a better prognosis. Selecting a balanced diet for proper nutrition is also important.
