Five Misconceptions about Dental Protection
The average life span of modern people is getting higher and higher. There are more and more 80 year old grandparents, but the life span of teeth has not increased. Many people are 20 years less. Teeth are the most laborious organs in the whole body. They are responsible for talking, eating, drinking water, chewing gum, sleeping and grinding teeth every day. They work overtime, but no one cares about them.
The purpose of dental diagnosis and treatment is not only to look at tooth decay and periodontal disease, but also to extract and implant teeth. It should help patients retain or restore the “healthy occlusion and chewing” function. People’s misunderstanding and myth about dental health care is the main reason why many people’s teeth are not as healthy as their life. Only by correcting the wrong cognition of oral health care and using “chewing” to maintain oral health, can the real teeth and false teeth in the mouth be well bitten to old age.
Take good care of your teeth! Five mistakes in dental health care
- [no filling]
There are so many teeth. How about missing one?
Wrong! Long term tooth loss will cause uneven bite force, and the teeth may lose light one by one.
- [corrective extraction]
The teeth are too disorderly and crowded, so they can only be extracted for correction?
Wrong! In recent years, the teeth can be fixed without extraction, and the effect is better and more natural.
- [implant for life]
Does implant tooth want to plant once only lifetime not bad?
Wrong! The service life of dental implants is related to personal cleaning habits and oral health. If you don’t take good care of them, the implanted teeth will fall out.
- [it’s good to install dentures]
Anyway, it’s better to wait until the teeth are gone and then install dentures?
Wrong! The chewing ability of dentures is only 1 / 4 of that of real teeth. If the oral condition is not good, the result of poor biting is that the health is greatly affected.
- [brushing is the most important]
Oral health care is to brush your teeth clean?
Wrong! To maintain oral health, in addition to cleaning, we need to maintain good chewing and occlusion ability.
I have seen many patients without teeth, including patients of the same age, classmates and old friends, whose teeth fall one by one. Always say which tooth is false, which tooth is true. Because I’m too busy to take good care of my teeth, I’ll be pulled out and replaced with a new one. Otherwise, it doesn’t seem to matter if I lack one.
