Clinical Martin Rios believe that the best treatment is prevention of diseases, so we advise in matters of diet and hygiene habits to our patients, from infants to old age. Also we think it is important that our patients understand what suffering oral problems is, treatment alternatives and which are their characteristics .
We carry out all the necessary tests in a first examination. May include photos, x-rays, 3D image, models, articulator mounting and diagnostic wax among others.
On the other hand, once the patient is satisfied with the result, we do some individualized recommendations for maintenance, where you will get the period of review.
Revisions with some regularity are important because they are essential for detecting lesions in their initial state, at which point solutions and treatments are simple, more conservative and more economic, otherwise these lesions may progress to cause pain, infections, abscesses, cysts and even irreversible damage such as the tooth loss.
In Martin Rios Clinic we are scrupulously strict with hygienic measures to prevent transmission of microorganisms from one person to another
This is the protocol we use:
After each dental intervention, all consumables as gloves, bibs, aspirators, glasses, etc. are discarded
As for the dental instruments as probes, mirrors, spatulas, etc. these are placed into a tray to transport them to the decontamination room where these are cleaned with a special brush, disinfectant soap and water to remove any organic residue.
After, all the materials are introduced into an ultrasonic machine with a disinfectant solution where chemical and mechanical action achieved a perfect disinfection by eliminating the microorganisms.
The next step is to dry and pocketing the instruments to sterilize them in the autoclave, where the remains from any microorganisms and any spores are eliminated with pressure cycles and high temperature.
To confirm that the sterilization cycle has been effective, the stock exchanges where the material is packaged have a witness that changes color whenever sterilization has been completed successfully.
On the other handall surfaces including furniture and dental chair are cleaned and disinfected with specific chemicals after each patientin the cabinet.
We have intraoral camera, a modern 3D scanner, panoramic radiography, cephalometric, and intraoral radiology. They are all digital.
The intraoral camera helps us to explain to our patients their own dental problems, this is a visual and easy way to understand, to display and to record the results.
The 3D scanner is essential for treatment involving dental implants because this lets us know the width, density and quality of bone, the exact position of nerves and anatomical relation, also let us perform virtually guided surgeries. In this way the surgery is much safer, faster and predictable.
Some of the many functions of the 3D scanner is the fact of being able to make a better diagnosis in cystic lesions, endodontic, tooth fractures, bone augmentation…
The panoramic radiograph shows both jaws, ATM, position and relationship alveolar nerve with respect to the teeth and other anatomy.
This helps us in a first diagnosis for rehabilitated mouths, this is also necessary for planning surgery such as wisdom tooth surgical extraction, for diagnosis of cystic lesions among many other functions and no less important it is the role in orthodontic treatment planning.
Teleradiography on the other hand, has its most important role in orthodontic treatments because they are used to make cephalometric studies.
Cephalometrics is a fundamental diagnostic procedure before starting any orthodontic treatment, which allows to determine the morphological abnormalities, placement and tooth growth, in order to establish the goal of treatment and to make proper monitoring.
The advantages of these radiological tests are innumerable.
In addition, we also test patients referred from other clinics. It is very quick to perform and it is deliver in a pen drive.
