An annual visit to the dentist from 2 years

“It is also very important for the mother, as soon as she is pregnant, to have her teeth examined and treated if necessary,” explains dentist Catherine Chaussain. “This will avoid later transmitting to his child cariogenic bacteria, for example, by tasting the food. ” For his part, the pediatrician checks at each consultation the state of the teeth. He will advise, from the age of 2, an annual visit to the dentist to carefully check the dentition training. The child will be able to become familiar with the sometimes strange and frightening instruments of the cabinet.

The right gestures of brushing teeth

The first baby teeth come out around the age of 6 months. Clean each toilet with a suitable brush and a little water. For 2 years, you can use a pea toothpaste special teeth of milk. Start at the bottom. Clean the front and back of the teeth where plaque builds up the most. Proceed in a back and forth motion, twenty times, before moving to the upper jaw. Finish by rotating on the front teeth. A good brushing takes two to three minutes. Finally, ask your child, as soon as he knows how to do it, to spit excess toothpaste.

From 3 to 6 years old: supervise the brushing of the child

From the age of 3, he starts to brush his teeth alone. But make sure he does the right thing and does not put on toothpaste. Advice and help are not superfluous until the age of 6 years. Its teeth gradually pass, from 6 years, twenty teeth of milk to thirty-two permanent teeth. Even if he thinks that brushing has no more secrets for him, continue to supervise the operation. He is still struggling to reach his molars.

Dental products adapted to the child

It is important to choose products that are suitable for little ones so that they can acquire good dental hygiene very early.

  • Anti-bacterial microfiber toothbrush finger: to gently give baby good habits up to 1 year. 
  • Special toothbrush small mouth: choose a model 0-2 years then 2-6 years. To be changed every three months or so.
  • Electric musical brush: it allows a very complete and playful brushing.
  • Toothpaste: avoid those whose scent is reminiscent of sweets so as not to accustom your child to taste sweet.

Dental hygiene is the best prevention against cavities. Even on the baby’s teeth, they are painful and can interfere with the child to eat. Cariogenic bacteria may also spread throughout the mouth and damage permanent teeth already in place.

A commitment to modern dental implantology

In recent years, dental implantology has become one of the specialties most demanded by patients to replace lost teeth. They help to recover the full functionality of the teeth and have a finish that does not differentiate them from natural parts. Thanks to this new innovative approach, patients recover their smile easily. Although it may seem recent, it is a discipline with a long history and has evolved a lot. Therefore, when assessing an implantology treatment, we must consider the innovations. Today, we can talk about traditional implantology and modern implantology.

Material Quality

The most important part of an implant treatment is that you have to know what products have been used and what is their origin. Only in this way will it be possible to properly monitor its evolution and deal more effectively with problems that may arise in the future. The guarantee is one of the aspects of modern implantology, but not the only one. It also involves others such as experience and specialization, investment in latest generation products and materials, the application of digital technology and work with top-level collaborators, which meet the demands we have set. This work philosophy is specified in a huge improvement in the patient’s experience. It goes from processes that last several months or even more than a year to interventions that allow the placement of implants and teeth on the same day, even with the simultaneous realization of bone grafts. In the past, or by those who still practice traditional methods of dental implantology, intervals of several months were necessary to achieve osseointegration of an implant.

Implants designed for primary stability

However, the emergence of new work protocols and the development of novel types of implants has led to the primary stability being the key to bone integration. We want the implant to be completely stable from the moment of placement, without it being necessary to wait a while. This allows us to connect a prosthetic interface that protrudes from the gum. We perform the tests on it, and both the implant and the bone mass in which it is inserted do not suffer with manipulations. Consequently, we can place the teeth in the same surgical act and wait for the gum to heal and retract, and for the tissue itself to progress to its normal state. Meanwhile, additional tasks can be performed until the definitive end of the treatment. We have already said that the new implant models have as a basic premise to achieve primary stability, so they show a design that facilitates their placement in narrow, short or low-density bones. Such properties contribute to shorten the process steps.

The support of digital technology

Together with professional innovation, the constant support of digital technology has transformed this discipline. Not only has the predictability of the treatment improved, but, above all, it has helped to respond patiently to the expectations of the patient. We must not forget that the effectiveness of implants has a functional and an aesthetic side. They offer the possibility of achieving an aesthetic improvement with obvious effects: recovery of the smile, rejuvenation of the face and increase of people’s self-esteem.

Keep better overall health

Oral health is very important because it is directly related to the general health of the body. Indeed, many types of diseases can be caused by aggravated oral health, especially if they are diseases that affect the nerves that are directly related to the nerve endings of the whole body, starting with the eyes, ears, heart, brain, etc.

A manual toothbrush, what type of hair to choose?

The manual brush is suitable for those who know how to brush their teeth by making roller movements by starting the gum to the teeth during the 2 minutes recommended. The advantage of this model is its particularly low price compared to an electric toothbrush. The brush works without a battery. The practical accessory can be carried easily while traveling. Regarding the effectiveness of brushing, the electric toothbrush wins hands down. People who do not have a particular pathology can use soft brushes with a very fine filament diameter of around 20 cm in millimeters (useful information for connoisseurs). By choosing toothbrushes with hard bristles,

Criteria for choosing a toothbrush

The shape of the hair and its hardness are important criteria when you want to choose your toothbrush. It is recommended to take a toothbrush with soft bristles, avoid as much as possible to use brushes having too hard bristles or medium hairs because they are considered too aggressive. For optimal toothbrushing, the bristles of the toothbrush must intersect at the inter-dental spaces to eliminate plaque. Using a brush with a hair too stiff does not allow this delicate operation.

What about the new generation’s toothbrushes?

Oral health experts say that the electric toothbrush removes 2.5 to 5 times more dental plaque than the use of a manual brush. This toothbrush model also facilitates access to normally hard-to-reach areas. Several models are equipped with a timer to respect the recommended 2 minutes of brushing. For even more effective tooth brushing, use sonic toothbrushes. The latter makes about 35,000 movements/minute. The connected toothbrush allows you to collect on your Smartphone several information to improve your teeth brushing: duration of brushing, cleaned area, pressures exerted, amount of removed plates.
