It may be necessary to adjust the brush to the inside of the teeth and areas that are difficult to reach. An electric toothbrush can be a good alternative and is easy to use. Make sure to clean under the bridge.
In narrow areas, where the interdental brush is hard to use, floss is recommended. Clean the sides of your implant-supported tooth and spacer posts by passing floss (thick floss) back and forth between the implant tooth and the neighboring teeth, or through the space next to remote posts.
ANGLE TOOTHBRUSH (INTERDENTAL BRUSH)
A soft toothbrush angle (interdental brush) is suitable for hard to reach areas around your implant-supported teeth or tongue surfaces (inner side of teeth) and around the face side (outside) of the implant posts of your implant-supported teeth.
INTERDENTALE TANDENBORSTEL (INTERPROXIMAL TANDENBORSTEL)
The use of an interdental toothbrush helps to clean the sides of the implant-supported tooth and crown or abutment posts and the surface under the bridge. Brush with a reciprocating motion and gently press against the side of the implant-supported tooth or abutment post. The toothbrush should not be too small, which reduces the cleaning effect, or too large, leading to discomfort during brushing. Plastic coated fiber is recommended. Consult your dentist about the size, shape and technology for your interdental brush. NOTE: Never use toothpaste in combination with the interdental brush.

Cavities also thrive between the teeth, at the gum line and the edge of the old fillings
TRAUMA - ACCIDENTAL INJURY TEETHIt’s easy to get damage to the mouth and teeth
Depending on how extensive the damage is, it can be more or less complicated to fix. Teeth loosen. A larger or smaller part of the end may break. Sometimes even that may damage the root and jawbone.

What do we do?
We do a thorough examination, including X-ray imaging to see if the damage including the root and jawbone. We also test the tooth responds normally. A chip off the tooth can be glued back. If not, it can be replaced with a plastic filling or with a Partial crowns made of porcelain. Moving teeth may need to be stabilized during the healing period.

X-ray technology has been used for many years in the dental profession as a tool to diagnose disease of the teeth and jawbone. Using X-ray technology it is possible to detect diseases of the teeth and bones at an early stage. This also makes it easier to prevent possible diseases of the mouth and teeth, thanks to X-ray technology.
X-rays are electromagnetic waves similar to the visible light, but with a much shorter wavelength. Rays properties are also different from the visible light by being able to penetrate certain items, such as body tissue.
The amount of X-rays can penetrate depends on the density of the tissue. Because the bones and teeth have greater density, it is also the best seen on the radiograph. Damage to teeth and bones dissolve the lime out of the damaged area. With an X-ray can the dentist see the damage that is otherwise hidden to the naked eye, such as dental caries and periodontal disease.
Radiography is individually adapted
We do not X-ray your teeth routinely. There must be a reason to make an X-ray examination and any investigation is also individualized. Thanks to modern technology, the radiation associated with X-ray minimized. Sensitive film and digital x-ray technology has allowed radiation doses decreased further.
Discovered that gave Nobel Prizes
It was Professor Wilhelm Conrad Röntgen who in 1895 discovered the yet unknown technology. Six years later, in 1901, received Professor Radiology Nobel Prize in Physics. The X-rays have been of great importance in including medical context and dentists was one of the first professional groups that used the X-ray equipment.
MUCOSAL - AFTE
You who have recurrent painful sores in the mouth may be experiencing something called Afte. It is typical for Afte just pain from mucosa.
In the beginning, many experience it as a burning or stinging sensation. After some days followed the pain of a wound on the oral mucosa. The wound may be one or more and have a size of 2-3 mm, sometimes more than 1 cm. However, it is very individual how intensely you experience pain.
A aphthous ulcers are usually slightly yellowish, slightly “smudged” and is surrounded by a red ring-shaped slemhinnerodnad. The wound occurs primarily at variable mucosa, therefore, in the transition between the gum and the lip on the inside of the lips and cheeks and on the tongue.
We do not know for sure why some get Afte and others do not, but one thing is certain – it varies how susceptible we are. This has to do with whether we have been exposed to psychological stress, hormonal fluctuations or damage by external force.
The pain is to relieve
Most wounds heal by themselves within 1-2 weeks without scarring. There is treatment that in some counteracts the appearance of aphthous ulcers. It can also ease the pain. If you are bothered by afte we can suggest different treatments and help with the pain. As for any other wounds in the mouth that is not gone for 2-3 weeks applies that you should contact your dentist.
Those who suffer from snoring and / or respiratory arrest can be helped by a snoring rail (antiapnéskena). To be able to get such treatment requires a thorough investigation in cooperation between dental care.
Snark Kenan preventing apnea and snoring by relaxing the airways during sleep. A snoring splint highlights the mandible. It prevents the tongue to fall backward. This creates good conditions to remove or alleviate the symptoms.
To think about the beginning
A snoring splint produced by an imprint of the upper and lower jaw. It is thus personally designed. You can not get away from it spans slightly against the teeth at the beginning. It often requires a couple of nights to get used to the splint. It may be helpful to practice using it while awake, perhaps a moment in front of the TV. After a few nights you will be used and will then only use the rail as you sleep. Some feel that they get more saliva, but it usually wear off after a while. In the beginning, when taking out the track in the morning, it can feel like the bite is not consistent with normal sammanbitning. After 20-30 minutes is usually all feel normal again.
For those who will be treated with snoring splint is especially important with oral hygiene. It is important to clean all tooth surfaces – even between teeth – with toothpicks or dental floss before you put the splint at night. The rail shall be brushed before and after use with regular toothbrush and toothpaste. Snark Kenan should be stored in water when not in use. Otherwise, it will dry and become warped. If the fit of the rail would change or if for any reason it would break – contact us. The rail should be taken at each visit dentistry.
The first sign of gingivitis may be that your gums swell and become redder in color. The surface is smooth and gums tight connection to the tooth disappears. It may feel sore and may bleed when you brush your teeth.
If you forget to brush your teeth or do not get them thoroughly clean when you brush, forming plaque (bacteria coatings) on the tooth surface. The plaques must be removed otherwise there eventually a gum inflammation (gingivitis) – the body’s defense on the bacteria attack. Clean the other hand, you teeth thoroughly at least once a day, the inflammation usually heal within a few weeks. The gums are healthy and taut again.
An infectious disease
An inflammation of the gums that are not treated can develop into periodontitis – periodontitis. It is a contagious disease and means that the bacteria on the tooth surface grows into the small pocket caused gums and damages the root membrane and jawbone.
The old plaque (bacteria) around the teeth and below the gum pocket calcify and eventually turns into tartar. Tartar must be scraped away by a dental hygienist or dentist, otherwise the periodontal pocket deeper, the tooth gets worse bracket and loosen. The earlier the disease is detected and treated, the easier it becomes to fix and we can prevent the infection from spreading.
