Food that the teeth like

Dietary routines and what foods you eat are in many cases crucial to your teeth. Here we give you the most basic advice to avoid damage to your teeth.

Good eating habits make a difference for the teeth

Every time you stop food in your mouth, an acid attack starts on your teeth. Then a decomposition of the tooth substance begins, this continues as long as the intake continues and about 30 minutes thereafter. The teeth then begin to recover in order to withstand future acid attacks. Therefore, it is important not to digest as it leads to a continuous decomposition of the teeth – caries hole in the tooth. Eat food that your teeth like.

Two hours between meals is a good rule of thumb for the teeth to recover.

How often does the dentist recommend eating?

Three main goals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and a couple of snacks a day are a good routine. These should also be so good that you are comfortable and do not feel the need to snack.

Between these goals it is good to drink water.

Diet that is good for the child’s teeth

We learn or inherit our eating habits from our family. Therefore, it is extra important to have a good diet that our children take after. Dentist always advocate a good diet. Therefore, we ask about the diet at each survey in order to advise on good and useful alternatives if desired.

Your saliva protects your teeth

To make your teeth feel good, saliva is required. Saliva contains important substances that help to protect the teeth, accelerates recovery after food intake and rinses clean.

The quality and quantity of saliva can actually be improved by eating food that puts your teeth at work. Food like carrots, rough bread and apple gives your teeth a workout that is not only good but also positively affects the saliva.

But the coffee break and the Friday morning?

It is good to drink coffee both in the morning and afternoon traffic, the problem will be if you continue to drink coffee with sugar or a soggy soda occasionally. These continuous intakes cause problems for the teeth.

Likewise, Friday morning or Saturday god is quite ok as long as it does not happen more often than that. It is better to eat all the candy at once instead of portioning it.

In summary, a good diet can help you to healthier and stronger teeth.

When it’s time for braces

Do I need braces?

A dentist usually recommends a denture to improve the patient’s physical “orofacial” appearance. With dental control, problems such as oblique teeth or crowded bite, overbite, subtlety, wrong jaw position or defects in the jaws can be corrected.

When is the time for braces?

Patients with orthodontologic problems can be treated at any age. The ideal time for setting up a toothpick is between 10 and 14 years, when the head and mouth are still growing and the teeth are more susceptible to straightening. However, since all types of face-to-face adjustments can be traumatic for children of these ages, parents should discuss the issue with the child before the denture is inserted. And the toothpick is not just for children. More and more adults wear dentistry to correct minor problems and improve their smiles.

What kind of braces will I need?

Your dentist decides which braces is best for your specific problem, but as a patient you often have a choice. There are three main variants of the dental position. The most popular type is a fixed metal or plastic toothpaste that is stuck to the tooth and appears significantly less. The variant called “lingual” is a fixed tooth position attached to the back of the teeth so it can not be seen. Traditional fixed denture, or “rails” is the variant that covers most of the teeth with metal bands twisted around the tooth. All variants use threads to move the teeth to the desired position.

For how long time do i need to wear braces?

It depends on the treatment plan. The more complicated space or betting problems you have, and the older you are, the longer your normal treatment period. Most patients must wear full teeth between 18 and 30 months, and then a “retainer” for at least a few months and up to two years to fix the tissue around the erect teeth. Some patients must wear a retainer permanently so that the bite will not return to what it used to be.

Do the treatment hurt?

The interconnected threads are tightened at each visit and give a gentle pressure on the braces to gradually move teeth or jaws to the desired position. Your teeth and jaws may feel slightly sore after each visit, but it goes fast. Also keep in mind that you may need to pull out teeth to get enough space to move your teeth with the teeth and adjust the jaws.

Who performs the treatment?

The dentist your family uses is responsible for coordinating your dental care and this may include a Dental control treatment plan, including diagnosis, examinations and dental control. However, your dentist may refer you to an “orthodontist” – a dentist with specialist training in developing, preventing and correcting teeth, bites and jaws and related facial abnormalities.

How do I maintain a crown?

Once you have made a crown, it is important that you check your dentist’s visit. Furthermore, it is important that you take care of your teeth through a good oral hygiene. You can read more about good oral hygiene here.

How long does a crown hold?
The durability of the crown depends largely on how you take care of your teeth. A dental crown requires the same level of care and attention as your natural teeth. If you have good oral hygiene, go to the dentist’s office, do not rub teeth and keep a dental-friendly diet, it’s a high quality of crown that is expected to last 10-15 years. You can read more about the guarantee on kronor here.

What is the benefit of a crown?
The advantage of a tannkrone is that it is a sustainable solution. If the crown is handled properly, it is expected to last 10-15 years.

As with all treatment methods there are disadvantages. For a crown, the following can be mentioned:

It may take some time to get used to the crown’s functionality.
It’s an expensive solution.

How does the treatment process work?

You start with a consultation with your dentist discussing all treatment options. The first step in the treatment is to prepare the teeth where the crown is to be applied. This is done by cleaning the tooth, removing all lesions and shaping the tooth with a diamond drill (drill to grind the teeth). The whole session is done during local anesthesia. The shape of the tooth is tapered so that there is room for the crown can be attached.

When the teeth are prepared, a touch of your teeth is taken – either using conventional or digital printing technology. A conventional print is taken by means of a special print material in a pushbutton. The completed print is then sent to a dental laboratory where they use the impression to make a crown.

The color sample is either at the clinic or at the laboratory technician. It usually takes between 1-2 weeks for the technician to produce the crown. In the meantime, the dentist will put a temporary crown – usually a composite crown – to cover and protect your prepared tooth. On your next visit, the temporary crown is removed by etching the outer layer of the prepared tooth. This is done to give the tooth an uneven surface so that the cement has a good surface to glue. Your dentist puts the crown on the tooth to check function, color and aesthetics and edge adjustment. Once you and the dentist are satisfied with the result, the crown can be cemented in place.

Most dentists offer digital prints instead of the conventional ones. Then a digital image of the teeth is sent to a dental laboratory or to the dentist’s own milling machine. If the dentist has a milling machine, the treatment takes place during a visit. You can read more about digital prints here.

What types of crowns are there?

Crowns can be made in a variety of materials such as gold crown, metallic crown (MK crown) and whole crown crown. There are many different brands and types of porcelain crowns. Manufacturing costs vary with the material used – the better the quality, the higher the price.

Golds have for generations been considered to be the most durable filling material for teeth, and it is still today if the regulations are followed. The gold crown can be worn so it goes “holes” on the teeth or in the edges of the post. If so, the crown must be replaced.

Metallic crown (MK crown)
A ceramic crown is an alloy of precious metals and merged with porcelain. The precious metal is the innermost and the porcelain is the outer shell. The color of the crown fits your own dental nano. It is a possible solution, however, porcelain / metal bonding is the weak link, and may be the reason that the crown does not keep cosmetic under heavy load. If the porcelain is exposed to

significant wear, the metal may become visible.

Helmetamic crown (pure porcelain crown)
Crowns in pure porcelain have become more and more popular in dental care. This is due to the cosmetic properties of the porcelain and the bonding technique used for fixing the crown.

Zirconium crowns:

Most used in the teeth of the teeth, because they are slightly dense in the color and can give a little “dead” appearance in the


Procerakronor: The first porcelain crowns used for the front teeth. They greatly relieve the metallic crowns due to their cosmetic properties.

Most refers to the fact that the crown is made from a digital print and then ejected. Either, the laboratory will scan the print that the dentist has sent or scan the dentist himself with a digital scanner: The most used scanners are Cerec, Trios, iTero and Plan Scan.

E-max crowns: crowns made of a particularly strong porcelain under high pressure – either as a Cad-Cam block at the dentist or at a dental laboratory.

Empress Crown: A printed china crown.

Cerinate: A strong porcelain crown.

Feldspar is often used for scale phases because they can be made very thin.
steel Crowns
A specially made steel chronicle used in childcare to keep the teeth in place instead of pulling out the damaged teeth. This crown is called Rockey Mountain.

What is a crown?

A dental crown is a restoration that protects the remaining tooth that has been damaged, ruptured or destroyed. A crown strengthens your existing tooth so that both bite function and aesthetics are restored. Tooth crowns are also called hedges when a crown sits like a hat on your existing tooth and covers the surface of the tooth.
