How to take care of an occlusal guard?

Posted by

What is an occlusal guard?

An occlusal guard is a hard and transparent acrylic, elaborated individually to the measure of the teeth. The guard helps you to regulate the force of chewing, it also protects the teeth from wearing out early, and from problems of mandibular articulation.

It is a method used to protect teeth from bruxism, which consists of clenching or grinding teeth.

How long should I use an occlusal guard?

The occlusal guard can be used for 6 months, however, the specialist is the only one who can determine if it is necessary to continue with this treatment.

The guard is usually indicated to be used at night, and you must go to review appointments every month.

If you do not follow the indications of your dentist, the time of treatment can be longer to solve the problem.

Tips to take care of an occlusal guard

  • Keep the guard in its case: This will help prevent the guard from being thrown away.

All of our patients always fall in love with the Mexican sea, we recommend them to schedule activities like: Sunbathing in the beach, eating lobster, traveling to the Riviera Maya, driving golf cars around Isla Mujeres, visiting Chankanaab in Cozumel, or taking selfies in Tulum. Plus, you will return back home with a new smile and many stories and pictures to show. This is why the Mexican dental vacations are on top of other countries.

This activity is very popular in Cancun, plus kids love adventures and pirate stories. The pirates guide tourists inside the ship, then the boat sail between the sea of Cancun and Isla Mujeres.

You will experience a furious battle when a second pirate ship approaches the boat where you are. At the end of the battle a winner will emerge, after the performance you will get delicious food like crabs, shrimp, lobster or a steak. This is an incredible experience that happens only once in a lifetime and that you cannot find anywhere. Cancun is the best place to find great tours, aquatic and eco-tourist parks like Crococun or Xcaret.

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.
