Recommendations for removable structures on implants
Recommendations for patients after the installation of removable, conditionally removable orthopedic structures, prostheses with fixation on implants
- Removable, conditionally removable orthopedic constructions (clasp prostheses, partial and full removable prostheses), prostheses with fixation on implants require getting used to them longer than other dental constructions. Usually, habituation and adaptation to them occurs within a month.
- After the installation of prostheses, in the first few days, increased salivation appears, which, over time, normalizes on its own. Diction is also broken. Phonetic discomfort gradually disappears. To accelerate habituation, it is recommended to speak a lot or read aloud, pronounce tongue twisters.
- Almost always, at the beginning of using such prostheses, pain in the gums appears. If such sensations have arisen, it is necessary to consult a doctor for the purpose of correction. Usually there are 3-5 such corrections. If there is no pain, you still need to go to the doctor for a follow-up examination.
- During the first time using prostheses, it is possible to bite the cheeks or tongue. This is due to a loss of muscle tone. In order to eliminate this trouble, careful use (at first) and myogymnastics (for example, puffing out the cheeks) are recommended.
- With such orthopedic structures, it is necessary to re-learn how to chew. You need to start with soft food, gradually increasing its hardness. It should be remembered that removable and conditionally removable structures can restore no more than 70% of the chewing efficiency. Therefore, eating superhard foods is prohibited. For example, apples need to be cut into small pieces. The use of carrots or cabbage is highly undesirable - this can lead to damage to the structure.
- Hygienic care for dentures is even more thorough than for your own teeth - you need to clean them twice a day. After each meal, you need to rinse your mouth with clean water, and if the structure is removable, rinse it under running water. Completely removable structures must be removed at night and placed in boxes with water, in which tablets must be dissolved for cleaning them (Corega, Protefix and others). Clean prosthetic structures are the key to long-term functioning. In the event of breakage or cracks, you must consult a doctor for repair.
- Orthopedic rehabilitation is a very complex and precise process, any non-observance of the doctor's recommendations can lead to a decrease in the shelf life of orthopedic structures and the occurrence of complications.
Recommendations after restoration
Recommendations for patients after dental restoration
Immediately after caries treatment or dental restoration, it is possible:
- Feeling of discomfort in the area of the treated tooth;
- Inconvenience when biting on a tooth, which should go away in 2-3 days. If habituation has not occurred, you must consult a doctor.
- The emergence of tooth sensitivity to cold or hot. These sensations should disappear within a few days. To speed up their elimination, it is recommended to use toothpastes to relieve hypersensitivity - Sensodyne, Lacalut Sensitive, Tooth Mousse and others. If the sensitivity persists within two weeks, you should consult a doctor.
- Soreness when biting. It should disappear within 2 weeks. If this does not happen, also consult a doctor.
- Swelling, redness and soreness of the gums are normal and will go away in a few days. To relieve inflammation, it is recommended to rinse with antiseptic solutions, do not stain fresh restorations (Givalex, Stomatidin) or the use of anti-inflammatory ointments, such as Metrogyl denta, Metrodent.
- Phonetic disorders if the front teeth were restored. To eliminate this phenomenon, it is advisable to speak and read aloud a lot.
- Immediately after restoration, there is a possible inconsistency of its color and transparency with the hard tissues of the tooth (the filling differs from the tissues of the tooth). This phenomenon should disappear within a week, when the tooth enamel is saturated with moisture. If this does not happen, the restoration will need to be corrected.
- The first 3-4 days after restoration of teeth, a "white diet" is indicated, that is, foods that can stain the restorations (Coca-cola, Pepsi, cognac, red wine, dark chocolate, strong coffee, hookah and others) should be excluded. If you have taken such products, you must rinse your mouth with clean water.
- You need to brush your teeth twice a day - in the morning and in the evening after meals. It is advisable to use a soft or medium hard toothbrush and low-abrasion toothpastes in which the RDA index is not more than 30-40 (Sensodyne, Biorepair, Emofluor, etc.)
- Professional oral hygiene should be carried out twice a year. If you are going to do this procedure in another clinic, the hygienist should be warned about the presence of restorations.
- It is advisable to avoid biting off too hard food, biting threads and more (this should not be done with your own teeth).
Contact your doctor if you experience any of these symptoms:
- the appearance of acute throbbing pain, does not disappear within a day;
- food getting stuck between the teeth;
- if the filling is rough or scratches soft tissue.
Recommendations after endodontics
Recommendations for patients after endodontic treatment
Root canal treatment is a serious dental intervention to preserve the tooth. It consists in the removal of infected tissues from the root canal, mechanical treatment of the canals and filling the canal with a special filling material.
To make the treatment as comfortable as possible, we suggest following the recommendations of your doctor:
- Endodontic treatment is often performed under anesthesia. Numbness in the upper jaw can last for 1-2 hours, in the lower jaw for much longer, for 2-4 hours, depending on your anatomical features. Try not to eat at this time, so as not to damage (bite) the soft tissues of the cheek, tongue, lips.
- After the termination of the anesthesia, aching pain and / or soreness may occur when biting on the tooth. This is due to the natural biological reaction of the body to the intervention and the presence of healing or filling material in the canal (s) of the tooth, and also depends on the degree of inflammation already present at the time of your treatment in the tissues surrounding the roots. These sensations can persist for several days.
- We recommend during this period: to limit the chewing load on the treated tooth, if necessary, you can take an anesthetic drug recommended by the doctor (Nimesil, Dexalgin in accordance with the instructions for use). If the pain intensifies, edema appears, the temperature rises (more than 38º), you should immediately consult a doctor.
- DO NOT APPLY HEAT TO THE TOOTH!
- If a temporary filling gets in the way or has fallen out, see a doctor immediately to prevent infection from entering the root canal (s).
- After endodontic treatment, the crown of the tooth is weakened. To prevent the formation of chips, cracks, and fracture of the tooth, for absolute medical reasons, it is recommended to permanently renew the tooth with a filling, or an inlay or an artificial crown within 2 weeks after endodontic treatment. This will help to avoid re-infection of the root canal, prevent tooth decay and restore the anatomical shape and function of chewing in general.
What complications can occur during or after treatment?
- Breakage of an endodontic instrument in the root canal.
- Ingress of flushing solution to the root apex or maxillary sinus.
- The onset of edema or periapical abscess.
- Root wall perforation.
- Removal of excess filling material outside the root canal.
Such complications, if they occur, are sometimes not pleasant enough, but do not pose a threat to life or general health. In the event of any complications, the clinic staff makes every effort to eliminate them.
Fixed prosthetics recommendations
Recommendations for patients after the installation of fixed orthopedic structures:
- After the installation of orthopedic structures, it is not allowed to eat or drink water for 2 hours.
Adaptation of the installed artificial crowns and bridges occurs within 3-5 days, so you will have to get used to them at this time. For the first few days, diction may even be changed. This happens after the prosthetics of the front teeth, which affect diction and phonetics. To speed up adaptation, it is recommended to talk or read aloud mor. Final adaptation and habituation usually occurs within 3 weeks. If you feel overbite 3-4 days after fixation of the structure, you should immediately consult a doctor.
- After fixation of the orthopedic structures, it is usually swollen and reddened. Within a few days, they acquire a normal state and take their corresponding position in relation to the edge of the structure.
- Artificial teeth, like natural teeth, require careful care.
Brush your teeth twice a day: in the morning after meals and in the evening before bed!
The gaps between teeth and crowns should be cleaned with an oral irrigator or brushes, which should be selected by the doctor. The use of dental floss is indicated only in cases where coarse fiber food has become stuck. It is advisable to rinse your mouth with special mouthwashes. In their absence - with plain water after each meal. Irregular or improper brushing of the teeth leads to gum inflammation, gum recession and exposure of the crown margin.
- Artificial teeth, like their natural ones, are prohibited from eating superhard food (gnawing nuts, lollipops, ice), as well as biting threads or twisting any objects. This can cause the ceramic to break off or the crown to split. During sports, it is highly desirable to use a special sports mouthguard. This will reduce the risk of damage to the ceramic.
- If you feel a violation of the teeth closure, a feeling of overbite, or a suspicion of displacement or rosification of the installed artificial orthopedic structures, you should immediately visit an orthopedic doctor.
- Visit your dentist in accordance with the approved treatment plan, and after the completion of treatment, once every 6 months for routine follow-up examinations and professional hygiene.
- If the condition of your teeth or structures causes you concern, please contact the clinic administrator to make an appointment.
Orthopedic rehabilitation is a very complex and high-tech process, any non-observance of the doctor's recommendations can lead to a decrease in the life of the orthopedic structure and the occurrence of complications.
