Innovating in dental cosmetic experience
Minimally invasive dentistry:
Maximum respect for tissues and their ability to respond biologically. This modern approach to dental treatment is possible through preventive measures that reduce dental deterioration. In addition, the application of adhesive techniques for placement of the restoration (such as Resins) makes conservative preparation techniques easier and, therefore, minimally invasive dental treatments.
With all this, the preservation of your teeth and their structure is preserved. This amounts to big savings in money, time, pain and patients´ anxiety related to their dental health issues.
Dental Implants and PGRF Regeneration:
Dental Implants are nothing but the application of a certain kind of “titanium screws” inside the bone in the space that used to be taken by a natural tooth, and above this “screw” a porcelain crown is placed. It is a delicate procedure and requires the integration of the implant with the bone tissue to give firmness to the new tooth.
These implants can be placed individually, in groups or the complete piece, depending on the specialist´s technique used.
The PRGF Regeneration is made through the new Endoret Technology, developed by the BTI Biotechnology Institute, through which a tissue regeneration is achieved by concentrating growth factors and other proteins, present in the patients´ own blood plasma.
This treatment consists of the extraction of the tooth´s pulp, a small, thread-like tissue found in the center of the conduct. Once the dead pulp is sick or damaged, it´s extracted; the remaining space is cleaned, re-shaped and filled. This procedure seals the radicular conduct. Ages ago, teeth with dead or damaged pulps were extracted. Nowadays, the conduct treatment saves teeth that otherwise would´ve been lost.
The most common causes of dead pulp are:
Lesions, such as strong injuries to the root (recent or past)
Once the pulp is infected or dead; if it´s left untreated, creates a pus deposit in the tip of the root and forms an infection abscess. Such abscess can destroy the bone surrounding the tooth and cause pain.
It is the branch of Odontology that treats gum and surrounding bone conditions.
Bad dental hygiene, poor brushing techniques, smoking habits and other situations cause food accumulations and other irritations to the mouth that favor the proliferation of bacteria. These kinds of bacteria irritate and swell gums. This is one of the most common conditions due to the fact that it doesn´t present symptoms until the disease is at an advanced stage. Its main symptoms are: frequent gum bleeding when brushing, tooth movements and bad breath.
It is important to consider that Periodontitis is a serious disease that can cause permanent loss of dental pieces, which could be replaced with implants or prosthetics.
It is the specialty in charge of the diagnostic and medical treatment of all the issues related to anatomic structures of the face, head and neck, as well as the pathology of the oral cavity. One of the most performed procedures by Maxillofacial Surgeons is the “Wisdom” Teeth Removal.
It is the branch of the odontology in charge of aligning teeth, correcting bite problems and achieving not only a beautiful aesthetic smile, but also a functional occlusion and improving the patient´s self-esteem.
The devices used in an Orthodontics treatment are brackets, which make a continuous pressure in a fixed position for a period of time. These are made of various materials such as ceramics (which are more appealing aesthetically, as they´re similar to the color of the tooth), or metallic. .
The Orthodontic treatment is applied in some cases to children and generally to teenagers and adults, with duration of 2 or years approximately depending on the diagnostic and patient´s cooperation.
It is highly recommended that cavities and dental cleanse are performed before starting any correction treatment such as Orthodontics or Maxillary Orthopedics, depending on what the specialist recommends. Afterwards, it´s necessary that a periodic 6 months appointment takes place in order to avoid dental tartar , which sometimes is formed in the course of the treatment due to food storage between the teeth. In addition, correct daily brushing and flossing is needed, in order to eliminate the plaque formed in places where the brush just can´t reach.
There are many devices that can be used in a child´s mouth such as: Bimler, Hass, Schwarz plaques, Frankel among others. And while all devices are good, patient´s cooperation and instruction following is necessary. It is important to know that the dental problems or issues must be attended in time in order to prevent further traumatic and expensive treatments for the patient in the future.
DSD (Digital Smile Design)
Digital Smile Design is based in the utilization of a very sophisticated software where the patient´s smile is reconstructed obtaining the best aesthetic result possible.
By doing a diagnostic wax and a mock-up, we can transfer de digital design to the mouth before realizing any treatment; this allows the patient to see the results before taking action, in order to suggest modifications and deciding on a course of treatment for each case.
The best thing is you can visualize your new smile without even starting the procedure.
Our practice is Member of the DSD Program.
This specialty is in charge of solving problems regarding oral health and general aesthetic harmony. The treatments available present very visible changes in a very small amount of time; they´re simple, painless, and can be done in just one session without the need of wearing out the teeth, ending in a 100% effective results.
The treatments we offer include:
- Teeth Whitening (using Phillips Zoom system)
- Closure of diastema and correction of dental asymmetries
- Restoration of neck cavities
- Aesthetic veneers (porcelain or resin) with previous DSD
- Amalgam replacement by halogen light restoration (Resin matching the tone of your teeth)
- Fracture Reconstruction
At Dental Holbein, pediatric dentistry is very important. We take care of kids´ dental needs: exploring and treating children and newborns’ conditions. .
Preventive measures can be considered and taken care of as soon as teeth come out. For example, fillers can be placed in the fissures of the dental pieces without affecting teeth structure, avoiding and preventing cavities.
A natural dental loss can be caused by diverse reasons. It could be due to an injury, cavities or different dental health problems. If you´ve suffered teeth loss, you probably need a permanent prosthesis or removable, depending on your case. Prosthesis are made of a substitute material to natural teeth, it can be made of acrylic materials, resins, specialized plastics, metal-porcelains or metal-free materials, and are designed to seem real.
The fixed prosthetics are, as the name indicates, completely supported by the teeth. They can be individual (crowns) or what we call a bridge, when more than one crown is placed in a row.
For this a small wear down is required in the consequent teeth (2mm approx.), which serves as a support and can be placed in the tooth-free zone called the “edentulous zone”. Finally, the prosthesis will be cemented carefully to the area.
On the other hand, the fixed prosthesis is in charge of restoring teeth that present defects in development, cosmetic indications, stainings, form anomalies, diastema closures etc.
These can be classified into partial or total depending on whether there are natural healthy teeth that can support it.
The principal advantage to these is that it can be removed for cleaning. It can be placed on natural teeth or implants according to the patient´s case.
They´re made of different materials: the most common are acrylics, metal-resin flexible ones (also called hybrids) that are more aesthetic because of the lack of metallic hook covering the tooth.
Stem cells of the dental pulp have a great ability to multiply themselves. Besides, they´re considered pluripotential cells, meaning that they have the ability to convert into tissue cells and specific organ tissue.
These cells, also called Mesenchymal Cells, are found in baby teeth in children and in wisdom teeth in adults, and have the potential of turning into bones, muscle, heart, cartilage, pancreatic cells and nerve cells.
