Non-carious cervical lesions

Dental abfraction is one of the non-carious cervical lesions, but there are mainly three types. Many teeth problems comes from bacteria for example cavities, which appears due to the lack of hygiene, these bacteria can pierce the tooth and reach the root and make the tooth useless.

In the case of non-carious cervical lesions, after the enamel has worn away at the level of the neck of the teeth, it can cause sensitivity to hot and cold drinks and food. In other words it is the loss of hard dental tissues produced by a lot of weight on the teeth, such as the forces produced by occlusal pressure.

This dental damage affects mainly the vestibular surface of canines and premolars of adults and the elderly. Non-carious lesions are damages caused by tooth wear, which causes an exaggerated response of pain related to the exposure of dentin to chemical, tactile or thermal stimulus.

Many people believe that brushing your teeth is the only thing needed to do a proper clean of your teeth, but actually, this is never enough. You need to know the benefits of using mouthwash, so you can have a complete oral care.

Dentists always recommend to follow the next daily steps: 

  • Tooth brushing your teeth 3 times a day, or at least two times, one in the morning, the second before sleeping.
  • Using floss every day to reach those difficult parts between your teeth.
  • Applying mouthwash 1 time a day, if you have kids buy them a mouthwash according to their age.

Benefits of the mouthwash:

After washing your teeth, you need to apply mouthwash. This products helps you to do a total clean, it eliminates all the bacteria, by this way it will reduce the probabilities to have oral diseases.

Halitosis exists due to the lack of use of the mouthwash, because many bacteria live inside the mouth, some people can actually suffer from bad breath if they have an stomach infections, this means that all the acids comes out from the mouth as bad breath. But must cases are consequences of not using mouthwash.

3.-  Prevents diseases and infections of the mouth
This is an important use of the mouthwash, because it prevents the canker sores, halitosis, and tonsil stones development. Actually the mouth is full of bacteria, it can be the most dirty part in the human body if we do not take care of it. This bacteria comes from the food, and also from our hands.

4.- Strengthens teeth with longer duration
If you want to have strong teeth you need to use mouthwash. This product prevents decalcification of teeth, for this reason if you have braces, dentists usually recommend to use an especial brush -that replace regular floss- and mouthwash .

Why is people so afraid of anesthesia?

The fear of anesthesia

Are you afraid of anesthesia?

We all have fears as humans, many people are afraid of clowns, some are afraid to socialize, other to losing someone. But when you come to the dentist you are afraid with two things in particular: Pain and anesthesia. But we will tell you: Why you should not feel scared:

  • In the first place, in our clinic everyone is friendly and kind.
  • In the second place, our dentists are highly prepared.
  • In third place, think about all the good things you will get above all the bad things you imagine.

Some patients are afraid of pain, needles, accidents, bacterias, social fobia, and also of anesthesia. But they are not scared of the substance, they are afraid of what they imagine that can happen, for example:

  • The fear of never waking up again from the procedure, consequently the fear of dying.
  • The fear of having pain, due to the failure of the anesthesia.
  • The fear of having an accident outside, due to the effects of the anesthesia.

The bad main feelings comes from an imaginary feeling of dying after losing consciousness, patients think they are not going to open their eyes because of the effects. Or the bad feelings comes from a natural fear: Pain.

People are also scared that their dentists loses control over the procedure, that is why the anesthesia is associated with a “temporary death” by some people, but what most of them do not know is that every dental procedure is supervised.

Some people also think that anesthesia does not work in the same way with them, this is the consequence of a failed procedure in the past.

Anesthesia

If you are about to have your first time with anesthesia or if you have had bad experiences in the past, you have to know that there is nothing to be afraid, because things do not happen twice, here you will be surrounded by experts.

Now, remember this instructions:

  1. Do not feel ashamed to tell your dentist about your fear of anesthesia, they will understand you.
  2. We recommend you to make an appointment in the morning, and schedule other activites, and here in Mexico we have many of them. How about a day in the beach? Or how about visit Mexican markets for souvenirs? Cancun for example has many adventure activities, you can go to the Riviera Maya and visit Xcaret or Xel-Ha. Actually, Cancun is a place full of beaches and it is close to the most popular ecotourist theme parks.
  3. Talk to your dentist if you can listen to relaxing music during the procedure.
  4. Bring a company with you, it can be your partner or your family. You will need help to take you back to the hotel.
  5. And at last but not least, remember all the food you will finally eat again, and in this trip to Mexico, you will be able to taste delicious tacos, empanadas, tamales, moles, pozoles, guacamole, panuchos, spicy food and sea fishes of all kind. And when you return back home you will have a shiny and happy smile.
