Dentist – beautician of your smile
A dentist is a kind of beautician smile. An individual program of prevention, hygiene and dental treatment is a question that can only be entrusted to a doctor. After all, beautiful teeth are, first of all, healthy teeth.
Modern aesthetic standards of how a person should look, make us carefully monitor the condition of hair, nails, skin and, of course, teeth. Many rely entirely on the advice of friends, acquaintances and recipes of traditional medicine. Although the knowledge of a professional is indispensable.
Dentistry is a field of medicine that combines knowledge about the structure, functioning and diseases of teeth and the human body as a whole. It’s no secret that dental diseases can trigger diseases of other organs.
If you are not indifferent to the condition of the teeth, firstly, remember that regular visits to the dentist are the first step to the beauty and health of your smile.
What does “regular visit” mean? Experts recommend coming to the dental office every six months. Some people think that this recommendation is purely self-serving. In fact, starting to treat teeth at an early stage of caries, for example, is much simpler and cheaper than treating an advanced form of the same disease – pulpitis. We draw your attention to the fact that only a dentist can notice the initial stage of caries, because at home it is unlikely that each of us has the opportunity to examine the oral cavity using dental devices. But almost 98% of the population of Russia suffers from caries – the vast majority.
Of course, in the “intervals” between visits to the dental office, it is important to take preventive measures. There is an excellent rule in medicine – it is easier to prevent a disease than to treat it later. This rule also applies to dental diseases.
Prevention of dental diseases is perhaps the surest guarantee of saving both money and the beauty of a smile. The main goal of prevention is to eliminate the causes and conditions of the occurrence and development of dental diseases.
Prevention is individual and professional.
Individual prevention includes quality oral hygiene carried out by the person himself. The main goal of oral hygiene is the removal of plaque. Prevention of caries at home is the easiest and most economical option.
Professional prevention of dental diseases is a series of measures to improve the condition of the teeth, depending on the violations that the doctor discovered.
Modern dentistry offers the following options:
Fluoride prophylaxis is a procedure during which teeth are coated with special fluoride-containing preparations.
Remineralization is a procedure during which enamel is saturated with missing elements (calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron, etc.).
Fissure sealing is a procedure during which natural small cracks and cavities on the chewing surface of the tooth are filled with a special solution.
The goal of all preventive measures is to reduce the risk of caries. And the effectiveness of prevention has been proven in practice: the above measures reduce the incidence rate by 50%.
Oral hygiene is part of prevention. It also happens to be “home” and professional.
Each of us brushes our teeth independently. The need for regularity of this procedure, perhaps, does not require unnecessary justification, because food plaque, accumulating on the teeth, contributes not only to the development of caries. Plaque, if not removed, eventually turns into tartar. And tartar contributes to the occurrence of gum disease – gingivitis and periodontitis.
To effectively brush your teeth at home, it’s important to choose the right toothbrush, toothpaste, floss and rinse aid.
But any, even the most thorough home cleaning will not replace a professional. For professional plaque removal, several methods are used. The first is mechanical cleaning: rotating mechanical brushes with special “professional” pastes clean the tooth from plaque. A more modern second way is to use the Air-Flow apparatus: a small machine releases a mixed stream of water, air and the smallest, finest calibrated soda particles.
In any case, using any means, it is necessary to take care of the condition of the teeth. In modern society, it becomes fashionable to be healthy and well-groomed. To look good means to monitor the condition of the teeth, including. A dentist is the person who will help you choose the best course on the path to a perfect smile.
