How Mothers should take care of their oral health after pregnancy

As a dentist, you play a crucial role in helping new moms take care of their oral health after pregnancy. Pregnancy and childbirth can cause changes in a woman’s body, including her oral health. That’s why it’s important to provide guidance and advice to new moms to help them maintain good oral hygiene habits and prevent dental problems. Here are some tips for advising new moms on their oral health:

  1. Encourage them to schedule a dental checkup. Advise new moms to schedule a dental checkup after pregnancy, especially if they skipped their regular dental appointments during pregnancy. As a dentist, you can check for any dental problems and provide a thorough cleaning to remove any plaque or tartar buildup.
  2. Discuss the importance of good oral hygiene. Emphasize the importance of brushing twice a day for two minutes each time, using a fluoride toothpaste and a soft-bristled toothbrush. Encourage them to floss at least once a day to remove plaque and food particles that their toothbrush can’t reach. Remind them that good oral hygiene habits can help prevent tooth decay and gum disease.
  3. Provide guidance on a healthy diet. A healthy diet can help improve oral health. Encourage new moms to eat a variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy products. Advise them to limit sugary and acidic foods and drinks, which can cause tooth decay and enamel erosion.
  4. Discuss the importance of staying hydrated. Drinking water can help rinse away food particles and bacteria in the mouth. It can also help prevent dry mouth, which can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Encourage new moms to drink plenty of water throughout the day.
  5. Advise them to avoid tobacco and alcohol. Tobacco and alcohol can increase the risk of oral cancer, gum disease, and tooth decay. Advise new moms to avoid or limit their use of these products for a healthy mouth.

By providing guidance and advice to new moms, you can help them maintain good oral health after pregnancy. Encourage them to schedule a dental checkup, discuss the importance of good oral hygiene, provide guidance on a healthy diet, discuss the importance of staying hydrated, and advise them to avoid tobacco and alcohol. By working together, we can help new moms maintain healthy and beautiful smiles for years to come.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dr. Padrós training week at FSCOE and with our Dental instruments Kit

The year began in the best way for Axis Dental when we witnessed the excellent training work of Dr. Jose Luis Padrós during the fourth module of the FSCOE Postgraduate in Dental Aesthetics.

Over the course of a week, a large group of young dentists had the opportunity to learn and practice the most innovative techniques through the use of the dental instrument kit that Axis Dental customized for Dr. Padrós. The module focused especially on advanced anterior and posterior stratification and also included the participation of Dr. Javier Tapia.

It is a great pride to be able to see new generations of dental professionals advancing their knowledge through the use of our tools. Being able to collaborate with great leaders in the sector also drives us to continue learning and improving our tools, and that is our purpose for this 2024 that begins.

We also remain attentive to the suggestions of our clinics for the development of our products at the pace of current advances.

Strategies for dentists: how to minimize fear of pain in patients

Pain is a universal experience that we have all experienced at some point in our lives. In an effort to increase awareness about pain and the ways in which it can be relieved, World Pain Day is celebrated every October 17th, and its main objective is to raise awareness about pain and encourage its proper treatment. Oral and facial pain is a common problem that can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life. Dentists play a crucial role in managing pain related to the mouth and teeth.

How do dentists help patients with pain?

Dentists are professionals trained in the diagnosis and treatment of oral and dental conditions that can cause pain. These experts evaluate patients experiencing pain and make an accurate diagnosis of the underlying cause. Axis Dental accompanies them with a wide range of high-quality instruments that are essential for the diagnosis and treatment of pain-related causes. Some of the main dental conditions that cause pain are:

Axis Dental Dentist

  • Fractured or chipped teeth
  • Injury or trauma to the jaw or teeth
  • Impaction of Wisdom Teeth
  • Tooth sensitivity
  • Temporomandibular Joint Disease

Dentists are aware that many people experience fear or anxiety when it comes to receiving dental treatment, especially due to fear of pain. To address this problem, they use various tactics and strategies with the goal of minimizing pain and reducing patients’ anxiety. Some of these strategies are described below:

Anesthesia: Dentists often use local anesthesia to numb the area to be treated. This ensures that the patient does not feel pain during the dental procedure.

Effective communication: Dentists explain in detail the procedure to be performed and answer all the patient’s questions. This open communication helps reduce anxiety by understanding what will happen.

Conscious sedation: In cases of extreme anxiety, some dentists offer the option of conscious sedation, which can help the patient feel more relaxed during treatment.

Music and distraction: Some dental clinics offer the possibility of listening to music or watching television during treatment, which can distract the patient and make them feel more comfortable.

Relaxation techniques: Dentists can teach patients relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, to manage their anxiety during the procedure.La importancia de tratar las afectaciones dentales radica en varios aspectos cruciales. En primer lugar, el dolor dental puede ser extremadamente incómodo y afectar la calidad de vida de una persona, dificultando la alimentación y el habla. Además, si se ignora o se pospone el tratamiento, el problema dental puede empeorar y requerir procedimientos más invasivos.

Pain management in dentistry is essential to ensure oral health and patient satisfaction. Axis Dental plays a vital role in manufacturing quality dental instruments to address pain-causing conditions. On World Pain Day, we remember the importance of raising awareness about effective pain management in dentistry and the commitment of professionals to providing relief to patients.

Uses and maintenance of dental burs: a reminder from Axis Dental

 

It happens to both children and adults. We return to work after the summer break, and it seems that we still need to remember everything!

 

It is also understandable that with the speed and dynamics of work, dental professionals delve into caring for their patients with hardly any space in which to review certain things.

Our job at Axis Dental is, in addition to providing them with quality and effective instruments, to be able to support them in the knowledge of uses of our products to guarantee the best results, as well as the durability of each tool.

Therefore, as a review on your Back to School, we remember some Rules for Use and Maintenance of our Dental Burs. Here we go

  1. Ensure sufficient cooling using a water spray to prevent deterioration of the tooth and its surroundings. The spray must be distributed over the entire active length of the instrument. A deviation of the jet may cause thermal injuries. Additional cooling is necessary for instruments with a length greater than 19 mm or with a diameter of the active part greater than 2 mm.
  2. Discard and replace. Immediately remove broken instruments as well as bent and defective instruments to avoid misuse.
  3. Do not force. During work, avoid prying and tilting the instrument and turning it on the edge.
  4. Adequate speed. You must absolutely respect the recommended rotation speeds indicated on the packaging.
  5. Dental burs occupy an important place in the basic instruments of Dentistry. Your correct choice and adaptation to the rotary instrument will determine its long-term efficiency.
  6. Very often these instruments are chosen empirically. The study of the different substances and materials on which we work and the results of different clinical studies allow us to choose the burs that best adapt.

Tungsten Carbide Burs: comfortable, effective and innovative

The development of an innovative design to solve all the problems that existed with Tungsten Carbide has been one of the great successes of Axis Dental.

Thanks to the characteristics of the tungsten carbide selected by Axis Dental, the cutting effect of our burs is several times higher than a standard steel bur.

The active tip of these tungsten carbide burs solves 6 problems for the dentist:

  • Avoid shock at the time of contact with matter.
  • With our exclusive blade, the cutter enters the matter smoothly without resistance and/or impact.
  • Eliminates vibrations during work.
  • It is a comfortable and pleasant bur to work with where the professional has full control of the bur during the intervention.
  • It prevents the breaking of the active part of the milling cutter. It does not cause unnecessary misalignment of the turbine, preventing costly revisions.

Tungsten carbide burs are the best tool for working on soft materials, for different reasons:

  • They are most effective in these types of situations.
  • It manages to leave the surface that the professional needs, smooth or retentive, depending on the treatment.
  • They reduce the intervention time of the professional.
  • Metals require specific attention in order to avoid heating the intervention area and making the patient uncomfortable. Axis Dental’s tungsten carbide burs have superior quality and a special design
  • that ensure total success in this treatment.
  • Axis Dental always offers you the best choice of each bur for each type of activity.

Great efficiency of our Ultrasound Scalers

We are very proud of the work we have put into the development of our range of Ultrasound Scalers, an essential instrument for the dentist in the development of prophylaxis, implant cleaning and periodontics, among others.

Thanks to the rigorous precision of the connection and the exact shape of the tip, these instruments allow professional interventions to be carried out with optimum efficiency. The selection offered is simple but adequate to have an ideal work dynamic.

Compatible with all connections

Our Ultrasound Scalers have been designed in short shapes to have maximum power or long and curved shapes to be able to access any part of the tooth, without forgetting flat tips to increase the power of waves or fine tips to reach narrow places. Each professional will find the solution to their treatments.

We have at your disposal the best-known connections on the market, that is, EMS, KAVO, NSK, SATELEC and SIRONA.

Why work with ultrasonic tips

  • It is faster than if it is done with other techniques.
  • Access to deep places is easier.
  • Cooling with water allows to evacuate the bacteria.
  • The dental surface remains smoother.
  • It stresses the patient less because it is the fastest intervention.
  • Tires the professional less.

A wear of 1 mm of the tip leads to a loss of 25% of the effectiveness of the instrument and a wear of 2 mm by 50%.
