Top pictures - day before my double jaw surgery (bimaxillary osteotomy), I only had one point of contact between top and bottom teeth. Thinking about it, I'm not sure how I used to chew?! Bottom pictures - 36 days after double jaw surgery! Safe to say, a few millimetre movements of the jaws make a massive difference in the face. .

No existen los dientes totalmente blancos, tienen de forma natural también distintos matices de amarillo, café y gris, e incluso zonas que son translucidas. Por ello, aquellos tratamientos que dejan los “dientes” totalmente blancos producen cierta incomodidad al verlos, pues notamos su sinteticidad y la belleza de lo natural siempre estará por encima.
A pesar de ello, lastimosamente, la edad y diferentes hábitos cómo el cigarrillo, el consumo de bebidas oscuras y la mala higiene, entre otros, hacen que los dientes vayan perdiendo su color natural y se vuelvan un poco amarillentos.
El aclaramiento dental es un tratamiento asequible y eficaz que busca la reducción de las pigmentaciones en la superficie del esmalte, permitiéndonos mejorar y tratar de restituir el color natural de los dientes.
Uno de los inconvenientes postratamiento es la sensibilidad, que en la mayoría de las ocasiones se produce porque se realiza de un modo apresurado y sin el conocimiento adecuado. Sin embargo, en manos de expertos, con insumos de alta calidad y realizado cuidadosamente, con paciencia y a su debido tiempo, este problema no tiene por qué ocurrir.
There are no completely white teeth, they also have naturally different shades of yellow, brown and gray, and even areas that are translucent. Therefore, those treatments that leave the "teeth" totally white produce some discomfort to see them, because we notice their sinteticidad and the beauty of the natural will always be above.
Nonetheless, unfortunately, age and different habits such as smoking, consumption of dark drinks and poor hygiene, among others, cause the teeth to lose their natural color and become a little yellow.
The dental whitening is an affordable and effective treatment that seeks to reduce the pigmentations on the surface of the enamel, allowing us to improve and try to restore the natural color of the teeth.
One of the disadvantages aftercare is the sensitivity, which in most cases occurs because it is done in a hurry and without adequate knowledge. However, in the hands of experts, with high quality inputs and carefully made, with patience and in due time, this problem doesn’t have to occur.
Hey peeps! Just wanted to update y’all on what I’ve been up to! BOARDS...*gulp*...the dreaded National Board Dental Examination (NBDE) Part 1. I’m officially a 3rd year Dental Student and am currently on a summer break! Sadly, the break doesn’t truly start until after Boards for me. But that’s okay because I took a longer break anyway since I didn’t start studying until later 😅. Anyways, I’m currently studying for my NBDE 1 and I’ve been trying to stay productive (mostly)! The NBDE 1 consists of 400 multiple choice questions including the following topics:
- Human Anatomy, Embryology, Histology
- Biochemistry and Physiology
- Microbiology and Pathology
- Dental Anatomy and Occlusion
For the first time in so long, I’m actually writing handwritten notes! It’s such a weird feeling for me. Typically, since I cram all my exams (idk I guess I’m just fast at memorizing and keeping things in my head the day or two before an exam), I’ve never written out notes. But because the NBDE 1 is obviously not an exam I can cram, I realized I’m starting to forget what I’ve learned. Especially in biochemistry since a lot of the info is detailed, I decided I had to take notes and I’m super glad I did! Makes for quick review sessions since it’s on paper. My time is ticking and I feel there’s not enough time in the day to cover what all I still have left. Lots to do, so little time. But I’m being active and productive in my studying now so it’ll pay off!
I really appreciate you all that have joined me on my journey through dental school and your continuous support! It’s truly appreciated, it inspires me, and humbles me. Also, I’m almost at 1K followers on this account (my dental account) wooh!! I’ll be doing an “About Me” post once I hit 1K to reintroduce myself to those who are new in joining my journey😊
Who else is studying for Boards? Do you typically type your notes, write them by hand, or like me just memorize it in your head? 🤯
Pendientes en el próximo post. Como 10 laminados cerámicos tienen el poder de cambiar una Sonrisa.
