(ADM) A preventive treatment decreases the cost by 80%. (ADM) 8 out of 10 people go to the dentist only when they have a dental discomfort, mainly pain. (Colgate Association)
In Mexico, 8 out of 10 patients go to the dentist until they have pain that prevents them from eating or talking. There is no dental culture where prevention is encouraged even though it decreases the cost of a treatment by up to 80%.
At La Clínica Dental, specialists agree with the Mexican Dental Association that 90% of Mexicans suffer from a dental problem and do not know it, since all of their clinics have cavities that must be treated, of which 30 % are already in an advanced situation and sometimes end up losing the tooth nerve
Among the methods that are promoted in the Dental Clinic to counteract this alarming fact in Mexico is that through a Fully Digital Diagnostic (DCD) the patient is shown the current state of his mouth, on an HD screen, so they are reviewing tooth by tooth what your denture looks like, making the patient aware of the importance of going every 6 months for revision and cleaning.
To take care of teeth and have good dental health it is important to eat balanced, have vitamins, proteins and good fats in the diet. It is also important to avoid eating foods with dyes, high in sugar or acids, since these in excess affect the coloration of the tooth and pigment them, in addition if you do not have adequate hygiene they cause tooth decay and plaque dentobacterin (tartar).
If an impact sport is performed, it is very important to have a custom mouthguard, this will help that in case of receiving a blow to the face the teeth have less risk of breaking off or breaking.
Another advantage of dental retainers is that when they have stress or nerve loads, many people grind their teeth by wearing down the edges where they make contact. The dental guard will help to avoid wear and damage.
At La Clínica Dental, specialists are aware of the importance of each patient's smile, so they take care of the smile of their patients, guiding the care they should have and attending to the needs presented by the patients.
