  • How to properly choose dental implants

    Replacing teeth with implants is a significant step both emotionally and financially. Therefore, people often wonder which manufacturer's implants to choose. Implantologist Julija Katkevica answers this question. Several hundred manufacturers offer implants; however, implants provided by market leaders excel in quality and high rate of integration. These products are certified and their production is based on a large number of scientific studies. Implants from the manufacturers of Switzerland and Germany, as well as Italy, Korea and others are available in Latvia. High quality implants are more expensive than products from less-known manufacturers, but their price is closely linked to the investments made in scientific research, clinical trials and product improvement.
  • The hot summer facilitates “explosion” of chronic inflammation of the teeth

    Often in hot weather we experience toothache. Why so? Summer and especially its hottest period is the typical time when chronic inflammations are flaring and progressing rapidly. It might seem like an unpleasant coincidence – toothache right before going on vacation. However, there is a logical connection. This year, especially due to the hot weather, there is a significant increase in the number of people who turn to dentists with toothache and inflammation. How to avoid such unpleasant experience? Julija Katkevica, dentist and implantologist, shares her advice.

  • What should you know and do after a tooth extraction?

    The cotton roll which is placed on a wound after a tooth extraction should be kept on the wound for 30 – 40 minutes. Drinking and eating is allowed 2 – 3 hours after the tooth extraction. You may not use any hot or hard food after a tooth extraction for 2 – 3 days. Use ”Ibumetin”, ”Ibuprofen”, ”Irfen” ( if you do not have serious stomach illnesses and only after eating) for pain release.
