College offers free dental treatment

Have you taken a beautiful smile today? There is no better way to win people's sympathy. When it comes to getting a job, then, is fundamental: who hires someone who is always frowning? Sometimes, the lack of a smile has nothing to do with mood. It is ashamed to show his teeth.

Dental treatment is not cheap, but there is a place where you can get some free dental treatment. It is the Faculty of Dentistry of Recife (FOR), in Arthur Street Coutinho, 143, Santo Amaro, Recife.

Through the clinic's social, the Faculty offers services such as fillings, extractions, root canals, among others, in order to socialize the treatment and make it accessible to people with low incomes. The focus is on dental implant. The service is part of the practical module specialization course in implantology.

To meet those interested in treatment, clinical social has a team of ten students and two professors of specialization. The average capacity of service is 15 implant surgeries, said the coordinator of FOR in Recife, Tereza Fraz√£o.

The implant treatment is indicated in patients who have lost one or more dental elements by extensive caries, periodontal disease (softening of the teeth), a fractured tooth (crown or root), unsuccessful dental treatment (root canal therapy, crowns, fillings etc..) and dental injuries (accidents).

The time of implant treatment may be variable and depend on several factors. Among these, a major bone is the amount available to allow the installation of an implant. The integration time of a graft taken from the patient is six months, and the bone bank grafts, which require a greater integration time is 10 months.

Conventional treatment involves the installation of implants and later, you must wait a period of osseointegration for four to six months depending on the region (mandible or maxilla, respectively).

After the integration period of the implant requires a second surgery consisting of a small cut in the gum in order to expose the implant in the oral cavity through the installation of a healer. This second surgery is simple and fast, which will, after 20 to 30 days, the procedures for molding and making of the prosthesis.

There are treatments that are immediate, ie, the patient is undergoing surgery and installation of implants immediately after surgery an implant is made, reducing the treatment time. The value of this approach is increased by having numerous benefits. Regardless of the type of treatment, the main objective is to restore esthetics and chewing for all patients.

The screening service will be held for those interested in the next 12 days, 13 and 14 August in Clinical Social own. It is not necessary to prove the social situation to be served. The clinic offers all the social dental service, including general practitioners and other specialties within dentistry. The phone is (81) 3423-7553 - Ext: 24.

You can also get care in free clinics attached to the other two courses in dentistry that exist in Recife. At the University of Pernambuco (UPE), the info phone number is (81) 3184-7661. And at the Federal University of Pernambuco (UFPE) number is (81) 2126-7508.
