Rehabilitación Oral

Antiguamente se creía que si un diente estaba relativamente enfermo o dañado, no tenía mucho sentido tratar de rescatarlo, por lo que se tendía a extraer la pieza dental.

La ciencia y la medicina han desacreditado esa teoría, ya que han comprobado que los mejores dientes que podemos tener son los propios y que su falta provoca problemas de salud que no sólo afectan a la boca, sino que al cuerpo entero, cómo cambios de postura que pueden generar daño muscular, óseo y hasta nervioso.

Podemos perder dientes por varias razones: traumatismos, bruxismo (apretar los dientes mientras se duerme), caries no tratadas, mala alimentación o enfermedades de las encías. Es importante reemplazar temporal (prótesis removibles) o permanentemente (prótesis fijas o implantes dentales) la pieza perdida para evitar el problema estético y funcional.

La Rehabilitación Oral se hace cargo de dientes que han sido muy dañados y que no pueden ser recuperados, pero que su raíz si está en buen estado. En este caso, se desgasta la pieza dental deteriorada y se cubre con una funda o corona. Esto se conoce como prótesis fija. Cuando el paciente necesita reemplazar varios dientes, ésta se realiza con acrílico o porcelana y se afirma a la dentadura a través de ganchos metálicos. De ese modo, se puede lavar y cuidar óptimamente la prótesis removible.

Sin embargo, hay casos en que se han perdido todos los dientes, y es ahí cuando se sugiere una prótesis removible total. Estas están hechas de acrílico termo curado y es indispensable que los tejidos que la soporten estén en perfectas condiciones, de lo contrario no entregará la solución estética ni funcional requerida.

No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure.
