¿Sabías que…?
▶️ La periodontitis es una infección grave de las encías que puede dañar el tejido blando.
▶️ Sin un tratamiento, la enfermedad de las encías podría destruir el hueso que sostiene los dientes.
▶️ No debes dejar de lado este problema tan importante. Acude a tu dentista lo antes posible.

Hoy te contamos algunas cosas que quizás no sabías acerca del mal aliento 🤢

▶️ El tratamiento para el mal aliento varia en función de la causa del mismo. Si tu mal aliento se debe a un problema no diagnosticado, tu dentista te derivará a un médico de cabecera.

▶️ Los enjuagues bucales y dentífricos te ayudarán a controlar la acumulación de placa bacteriana.

▶️ Las enfermedades relacionadas con las encías pueden tener relación directa con el mal aliento, por lo que es posible que seas derivado a un periodoncista.
Ponte en contacto con nosotros y evaluaremos tu situación de forma personalizada.

¿Estás embarazada y no sabes si es prudente acudir al dentista? 🤔

Por lo general, la mejor opción es siempre realizar tus tratamientos dentales antes o después de tu embarazo, pero si tienes una urgencia por dolor y necesitas acudir a tu dentista, podrás hacerlo sin problemas. 👇

Puedes realizar extracciones, curetajes, endodoncias o limpiezas dentales para evitar problemas graves o provenir infecciones.

Recuerda siempre consultar estas cuestiones con tu médico o dentista de confianza.

Tune in to our final podcast for the year, 'Dental Central Wrapped'.

It’s been another big year as the team at Dental Central, Emily and Matt (with the help of Frankie) look back at some highlights, including dental school graduations, a record breaking ADAVB Convention & Exhibition, their favourite podcast episodes and thoughts about what 2023 might bring.

A big thanks to all our listeners, who have taken us to more than 6400 downloads since we first launched in 2021. We hope everyone has a restful break and we look forward to reconnecting in 2023.

Full house for our itisectionusa study club meeting last directed by our own Dr. Gheddaf Dam and the implant legend hpweber2 last evening 🙌🏼 Dr Kim our periodontist was also in attendance 😃

Had a wonderful overview of the literature regarding the need and timing of soft tissue grafting around dental implants by the talented samar_shake 👌🏼It is important for implant specialists and general clinicians to understand the difference between different soft tissue (gum) grafts, as well as have the fundamental knowledge of treatment planning implant cases that require soft tissue grafting, in order to determine weather to graft or not to graft areas that have or require #dental #implants. Our all time goal is to widen our knowledge and our experience to better serve our patients and make the best choices for/with them 🌷🎉

This week, I've been noticing lots of frenzy & stress at school as many D4's are looking for patients for their licensure exam (#CDCA) this weekend. It is hitting me that many of my beloved D20s are graduating in just a few months, and that soon it will be my turn to go through this final stage. I think #sweets & #coffee are my biggest destressors but I know this is not a sustainable method. (Also I've been telling my #patients to reduce snacking but lo behold, I'm one of zee biggest #sweettooth 🍰🍬 lol). I need more #prayers, #bibleverses, & #deepbreaths to ask God for peace and comfort in my heart. I wish all the fourth years at #TUSDM best of luck on their CDCA and if you know anyone with good class 2 &3 cavities and/or scaling & root planing, plz lemme know asap!! Their cost of treatment will be covered and many 4th years will be so #joyful to have them this weekend haha 😆🤩
Any tips for successful dental license exam day (CDCA & WREB)? For those who went thru it and survived, how did it go for you?
