General dentistry covers a wide range of procedures. This includes the initial consultation and diagnostics such as x-rays, CAT scans and wax moulds for replacement teeth. He or she will use a variety of methods such as tests, x-rays and the like to determine what is wrong with your teeth before treatment.
In terms of treatments, you will find that your general dentist will offer some or all of the following:
  • Fillings: teeth can be filled with a variety of materials which include gold, amalgam,  porcelain and composite resin.
  • Crowns: these are artificial teeth or ‘caps’ which can be fitted over broken or damaged teeth. These will maintain their structure and protect them from further damage.
  • Bridge: this is a structure which contains an artificial tooth or ‘pontic’ which is anchored to a couple of crowns. These crowns fit over the natural teeth on either side of a gap which help to secure the false tooth in place and so ensure a natural looking appearance.
  • Root canal treatment: this procedure is carried when the tissue or ‘pulp’ within a tooth becomes infected. This procedure can be performed by a general or specialist dentist.
  • Dentures: these are basically a set of false teeth. If you have quite a few teeth missing, as a result of an accident or disease then dentures can help. They are removable false teeth which look and behave in much the same way as natural teeth.
  • Dental cleaning: this can take the form of a ‘scale & polish’ or advice on brushing and flossing.
  • Bonding: this is the name given to the procedure in which a type of resin is used as a ‘glue’ to stick a material, such as a veneer to a tooth. Often used to treat stained or damaged teeth.
  • Oral (mouth) and Maxillofacial treatments: this is the technical term used to describe procedures for the mouth, face and jaw. Includes dental implants and treatment for temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ).
These are the most common services offered by a general dentistry. However, at MUSTRE DENTAL CLINIC you´ll find that we carrie out a range of cosmetic dental procedures such as teeth whitening, veneers, lumineers and cosmetic bonding.


Losing a tooth can be of social and psychological concern. Teeth are lost for a number of reasons including:

* Dental decay
* Periodontal (gum) disease
* Trauma (injury or accident)

When a permanent tooth is lost, the neighboring teeth are affected. Because the support and chewing forces are altered, the remaining teeth will begin to shift. The tooth above or below the one that was lost will begin to move up and out of its sockets. This accelerates periodontal (gum) disease and causes further breakdown in the dental arch. If the missing tooth is not replaced, more teeth will eventually be lost, due to the improper forces exerted during chewing.

Crown and bridge treatment is a long-term method of replacing missing teeth. A crown is placed on an individual tooth, (somewhat like a thimble over your finger) where there is no longer sufficient tooth structure left to place a filling.
A bridge spans a space where one or more teeth have been lost in the dental arch. The teeth on either end of the span are crowned and are referred to as abutments. The false teeth in a bridge that join the abutments are referred to as pontics.
Crowns and bridges are most often made from superior materials such as precious metals (gold),  Semi-precious metals, porcelain, or a combianation of metal fused to porcelain. Both esthetics (appearance) and fuction are considered when selecting the material most suitable for you.

At the first appointment a thorough oral examination, evaluation of your dental history and necessary X-rays are completed. The diagnosis is based on these three factors. Once it has been determined that crown and bridge treatment is indicated, you will be set up with a series of appointments. Note that It´s very important that you keep all these appointments.
Your treatment occurs in a planned sequience. Missing or postponing your appointment may cause treatment delays, allowing further tooth movement before treatment can be completed.

The tooth or teeth to be treated are numbed with an anesthetic. Sometimes you can expect the side of  your face to feel numb, as well. Next, during the preparation phase, your tooth or teeth  to be crowned are trimmed down. This allows sufficient space for the crown or bridge to fit. After this preparation stage has been  completed, an impresesion of that area of  your mouth is taken.
Your teeth will be fitted with temporary coverage until your next appointment. At the following appointment, the crown or bridge is adjusted for proper fit, prior to permanent placement. It is often necessary to fine trim and polish the new crown or bridge. Other factors we consider include:

* Esthetics- color match and appearance
* Function-  Chewing and biting accuracy
* Tissue compatibility- The contour of the prosthesis must allow the surronding tissue to conform to a natural, healthy position.

* Helps restore and maintain the natural bite.
* Prevents unnatural stress on the other teeth.
* Helps keep opposing teeth in their proper place.
*Prevents shifting and tilting of adjacent teeth.
* Helps prevent further dental decay and periodontal (gum ) disease.
* Maximizes your smile, speech and chewing fuction.

Throughout your crown and bridge treatment you may have questions or concerns not covered in here. We will make every effort to ensure your comfort during crown and bridge treatment. And we´d be happy to answer any questions you may have. Our concern is your comfort and confidence. Our goal is to help preserve your smile for a lifetime.




Periodontal (Gum) Disease

Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support the teeth.
Teeth are supported by the gums, or gingiva. A tooth's root is anchored to its socket by fibers called periodontal ligaments.
The gums do not attach to the teeth as firmly as one might think. A shallow, V-shaped gap called a sulcus exists between the teeth and the gums. Periodontal disease affects this gap. Eventually, in periodontal disease, the tissues supporting the tooth break down. If only the gums are involved in this breakdown, the disease is called gingivitis. If only the connecting tissues and bone are involved, it is called periodontitis.

Periodontal (Gum) Disease Causes

Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that clings to the surface of teeth and gums. Brushing and flossing every day may not completely remove all the plaque, especially around the gum line. The bacteria in the plaque produce toxins that may injure the gums and supporting tissues.
Plaque that is not completely removed within 48 hours hardens into a rough deposit called tartar or calculus. Once tartar develops, the only way to remove it is by having the teeth professionally cleaned. Tartar below the gum line causes inflammation and infection. Because this process is often painless, a person may be unaware a problem exists.
Causes or factors that worsen gum disease include the following:
  • Because of a dulled immune response and less oxygen in the mouth, smokers are 2-7 times more likely to develop periodontitis than nonsmokers.

  • Diabetes worsens periodontal disease. If a person's blood sugar level is poorly controlled, a worse infection, poor healing, and a greater loss of bone and connective tissue are likely.

  • Stress increases certain hormones that make a person more susceptible to infection. Pregnancy and birth control pills can also increase hormone levels.
  • Steroids, antiseizure medicines, cancer medicines, and blood pressure medicines can all affect the gums. Some drugs decrease the flow of saliva, irritating the mouth and making it prone to infection.


When to Seek Medical Care

A dentist provides major care for diseases of the teeth and gums.
A person should visit his or her dentist for the following concerns:
  • Gums start to bleed.
  • Gums are swollen and sore.
  • Bad smelling breath or a bad taste develops in the mouth.
  • Gums become very red or very pale.
  • Teeth are painful.
  • Teeth are loose in their sockets.
If any of the above symptoms are present, plus fever, sweats, chills, or face swelling, go to a hospital's emergency department. Other reasons to go to an emergency department include the following:
  • The tongue feels swollen or pushes up from the floor of the mouth.
  • Swelling develops below the chin, especially if it is red, tender, and warm.


Periodontal (Gum) Disease Symptoms

  • Gingivitis

    • Gingivitis includes swelling and bleeding of the gums, bad breath, or a bad taste in your mouth. Good teeth-brushing and flossing can reverse the affects of gingivitis.

    • Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis (ANUG) is an advanced and invasive form of gingivitis that causes sore gums and a whitish membrane on the gums. It requires antibiotics as part of the treatment.

  • Periodontitis

    • Periodontitis occurs when bacterial toxins and enzymes destroy the connective tissue and bone.

    • The gums draw back, and the roots of the teeth are exposed. The teeth may become very sensitive to temperature changes, or new cavities can develop.

    • The pocket between the tooth and the gums deepens; plaque in this area is very difficult to remove. Bacteria invade the surrounding structures.

    • When the gums pull away from the teeth, pus develops between the teeth and the gums or the permanent teeth become loose in their sockets. Only a dentist can decide whether the teeth can be saved.


Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment

Self-Care at Home
Good oral hygiene prevents periodontal disease.
  • Brush the teeth at least twice every day. Brushing removes plaque from the inner, outer, and chewing surfaces of each tooth. A dental hygienist can demonstrate the proper technique.
  • Get a new toothbrush every 3 months.
  • Use a toothpaste that contains fluoride.
  • Floss every day. Flossing removes plaque between the teeth that a toothbrush cannot reach.
  • Use a mouthwash that kills bacteria.
  • Eat a well-balanced diet; avoid too many sweets.

Medical Treatment

If the dentist diagnoses periodontal disease, the first treatment will probably include scaling and root planing. More than one visit may be needed for this treatment. Scaling removes plaque and tartar from below the gum line down to the bottom of each pocket.
  • A local anesthetic (Novocain) may be needed to reduce discomfort.
  • The roots of the teeth are smoothed. Smoothing allows the gums to reattach to their roots.
  • Antibiotics and a special mouth rinse may be needed.
  • If pockets are still present after scaling and planing, surgery may be needed.


Clinic studies show that whitening your teeth under the supervision of your dentist it´s a safe procedure. The main ingredient in Opalescence is peroxide of carbamaid, that has been use in the whole world. Also Opalescence has 10% approval of the American Dental Asociation (ADA).

The dentist will take impresions of your teeth, that will allow to fabricate a bleaching guard used in the whitening procedure. The Opalescence gel is placed in the bleaching guard which adapts to your teeth. While the gel bleaches your teeth, the peroxide of carbamaid is descomposed and oxygen penetrates in to the enamel and the dentine. This whitens over colored areas, the structure of the tooth doesn´t change; the color will just clear.

The result will be seen after the first night. The natural whitening comes out when the treatment continues during a week up to ten day period. Your dentist will check the results.

They do exist with small percent of people that may experiment sensibility with cold or hot, during the process of whitening. This will go away and it can be treated with Ibuprofen or another analgesic that your dentist will indicate. The normal sensibility will disapear during the first 48 hours of the treatment.

It depends on you. The results can be permanent. Keep a good hygiene and and brush regularly, specially after eating or drinking products with pigments in it, and result of your whitening can last for years. If you take products that will stain, just as coffee, tobacco and red wine, it may just need a retouch of one or two days every two years.
Safe, clinic studies done 10 years ago, have guarantee that Opalescence whitening Dental System is safe. Also, Opalescence used at 10% has the seal of approval of the American Dental Association (ADA)
The effectiveness is in the results. Nothing will give you a whiter and brigther smile than Opalescence. It has been demostrated in dozens of hundreds of smiles, giving you a younger look.
Convenient. The Opalescence system is design to adapt to individual needs and way of life in each person. Ask your dentist to recommend a better program that will fit your life style. We use only the best whitening system.
