Preventing dental problems
It is important to take good care of your teeth and gums between dental visits. Dental plaque is a problem that keeps coming back, but this can be managed well by brushing your teeth and using soft-picks regularly. Below are a few tips for taking good care of your mouth:
– Brush your teeth at least twice a day. Toothpaste with fluoride is recommended.
– Use toothpicks for your teeth daily. Interdental soft-picks are recommended.
It is important to have your teeth checked by a dentist regularly to prevent problems and complaints. Some examples of our common general treatments are: periodic check-ups, wisdom tooth extraction, cavity filling, root canal treatment and oral hygiene.

Dental plaque is a layer of bacteria that builds up on your teeth and gums. It is the biggest cause of cavitites. The bacteria in the plaque produce acids that affect the enamel layer of your teeth. Over time, this will lead to a loss of enamel in the tooth. This can damage the surface of your tooth which results in a cavity.
Dental plaque hardens when it is not removed by a dental hygienist for too long. Tartar is a hard calcium layer that accumulates on your teeth. It is very rough and can easily retain food residues. This can result in the discoloration of your teeth and cavities. Tartar causes inflammation of your gums and can also cause a bad breath. So there are plenty of reasons to prevent the build-up of tartar.
Persistent bad breath and/or bad taste
A bad breath often leaves you with a metallic and sour taste in your mouth. This is caused by the bacteria that settle in the deep grooves on the back of the tongue.
You can prevent this by brushing your teeth and using a tongue cleaner daily. The use of toothpicks also contributes to maintain good oral hygiene. This prevents the bacteria from nesting and causing a bad breath or bad taste. The dentist can refer you to the dental hygienist who will advise you on how to take best care of your oral hygiene.
Good oral hygiene can prevent tooth sensitivity. When brushing, it is important that you don’t use too much force and that you avoid that gums become inflamed. This significantly reduces the risk of sensitive teeth. To achieve this, it is important that you remove all the dental plaque on and between your teeth and molars. This should be done on a daily basis. We recommend you to brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. You can also choose to use a special toothpaste that reduces tooth sensitivity. Brushing teeth should be done for at least 2 minutes without too much force and with a soft toothbrush. Also clean the spaces between the teeth with toothpicks daily.

Cavity filling Amsterdam
The moment you have a cavity, it should be filled as soon as possible. If you wait too long to have a cavity filled, your tooth will hurt more and more. We therefore recommend you to make an appointment as soon as possible at Dental Centre Amsterdam.
How does the dentist fill a cavity?
Filling a hole is done in three steps: observation, drilling and filling. We explain the three steps below for you.
In the first step, the cavity is diagnosed. Our dentists can recognize a cavity at a very early stage, before it starts to hurt. A cavity only hurts when it is in an advanced stage. By having your teeth checked regularly, you can avoid painful and expensive treatments. When the dentist detects a cavity, he will advise you about the options for filling the cavity. You can choose to have the hole filled with anesthesia, but also for a treatment without anesthesia.
The next step in the process is drilling. If you have opted for anesthesia, you will receive a local anesthetic in the area to be treated. Then the dentist gets to work. At first, the dentist drills away the decay so that the hole is clearly visible and acid and bacteria can no longer spread.
Then the hole is filled with a composite filling. This is a white filling. The filling itself does not hurt and when the anesthesia wears off, you will not feel any after pain. After the treatment you can immediately drink and eat again. On average it takes 30 minutes to fill a hole.
Wisdom teeth extraction Amsterdam
If you are suffering from your wisdom tooth, it may need to be pulled by an expert dentist. The pain may be caused by the tooth pressing on the jaw or by the tooth growing crookedly due to lack of space in the mouth. In the last scenario, it is wise to have the molar pulled. If you are having pain, it is always wise to come and get advice from a dentist at Dental Centre Amsterdam.
How is a wisdom tooth pulled?
The removal of a wisdom tooth can be divided into 3 steps: taking pictures, removing the molar and the post-treatment. We explain the steps for you:
If your wisdom tooth is bothering you, the dentist will first take a picture. He then checks to see if the tooth is growing crookedly. If it is, then the wisdom tooth probably needs to be pulled. If the gums are already inflamed or the wisdom tooth is too deep in the gums, you will be referred to the oral surgeon.
In the second step, the wisdom tooth is pulled. At first, you will be given an anesthetic to ensure that the treatment is done with as little pain as possible. Then the dentist will move the gums aside and make room to remove the molar. He moves the molar slightly, which in most cases allows him to extract the molar in one pull. Then we stitch the wound and place a gauze pad on it. You should bite down on this thoroughly for 30 minutes. The removal of a wisdom tooth takes an average of 15 minutes.
The anesthesia still works for a while, but you should take a paracetamol an hour before the treatment. The anesthesia stops working a few hours after the treatment. Then the pain returns and we recommend that you take another painkiller if necessary.
Root canal treatment Amsterdam
A root canal treatment is performed when you are suffering from severe toothache caused by inflamed pulp in your tooth. To help you get rid of your pain the nerve will have to be removed. In this way new inflammations are immediately prevented. Therefore, a root canal treatment is also called a nerve treatment.
How does a root canal treatment go?
We perform a root canal treatment in a couple of steps, and when necessary we spread it out over two appointments. We do this so that the treatment is as pleasant as possible. When multiple appointments are needed, we try to schedule them as close together as possible. We recommend that you put as little strain on your teeth as possible between the appointments.
At the first appointment, we will take an x-ray of your teeth. This allows us to see how the roots lie in your jawbone. Then you will be given a local anesthetic to ensure that you do not experience pain during the treatment. After that, the dentist will remove the inflamed tissue by making a small opening in the tooth. The next step is to clean the root canals. Once this is done, we will start filing and prepare the canals for the new filling. If we can complete the entire root canal treatment in one appointment, then you will receive a permanent filling. Do you still need a second appointment? Then we’ll place a temporary filling that will be replaced for the permanent filling at the next appointment.
At the 2nd appointment, the dentist removes the temporary filling. Then the permanent filling is placed. It consists of cement that is well absorbed by the human body. In order to close the root canal properly and stably, we push a pin in the cement against the canal wall. Now the root canal is closed, it can heal.
