From the Big Hole of The Needle to the Tooth Extraction, Every Step is Startling!
The first step: shallow caries
When we have black spots on our bodies, you carelessly say: “It’s okay, I don’t feel it.”
The dentist said: “Caries is a disease in which the hard tissues of the teeth are chronically and progressively destroyed by multiple factors, mainly bacteria. Shallow caries, or enamel caries, have already begun and require medication or filling treatments.
Step 2: Medium caries
When you eat candy, you feel sore, and you say, “It’s okay, it’s not very painful.”
The dentist said: “At this time, the lesion has been destroyed to the superficial dentin layer, and the tooth has already formed cavities. It is sensitive to sweet and sour food and needs filling treatment.”
Step 3: Deep caries
When you eat, you can’t bite the food, and you say, “Fortunately, you can bite with the other tooth.”
The dentist warned: “The disease has been damaged to the deep layer of the dentin, and the teeth have deep cavities. Temperature stimulation, chemical stimulation, and food entering the cavities all cause pain. At this time, timely filling treatment will have time to preserve the dental pulp. ”
Step 4: Acute pulpitis
When you stayed up all night last night and your teeth hurt so much that you hit the wall, you held back and said: “Take a painkiller and bear with it.”
The dentist persuaded you: “When the lesion invades the pulp tissue and produces inflammatory exudate, the pulp cavity is high in pressure, causing severe pain. At this time, pulp drainage is the most effective way to relieve the pain of acute pulpitis.”
Step 5: Acute apical periodontitis
When your face is so swollen that you can’t open your eyes, you keep your eyes open and say, “It’s no big deal, just take anti-inflammatory drugs.”
The dentist said anxiously: “Acute periapical periodontitis infection of the tooth may cause interstitial infection, which can be life-threatening. At this time, it is necessary to go to regular dental treatment for the tooth, cooperate with medical treatment, and perform abscess incision and drainage if necessary.”
Step 6: Remaining crown and root
When you find that the teeth are falling off in pieces and only a few crowns are left, you feel a little regretful and say, “That’s it! I guess there is no way to save it.”
The dentist said earnestly: “As far as current medical technology is concerned, post crown restoration after root canal treatment can well preserve the residual crown and residual root.” Painless root canal treatment can achieve the best results.
Step Seven: Unplug
When the dentist told you that the tooth must be removed, you cried, “The tooth is gone, what can I do?”
At this time, the dentist comforted you and said, “Don’t be afraid! You can get your teeth in three months.”
There are currently three ways of dental implantation: dental implants, removable dentures, and porcelain bridges, which can meet your different needs.
How to prevent dental caries
The National Dental Prevention Group summarized years of experience in oral health education and summarized effective methods for preventing dental caries into the following five aspects, which became the “Five Steps of Dental Prevention.”
- Brush your teeth in the morning and evening, use a high-quality toothbrush:
The occurrence of caries must involve the participation of bacteria, and the reproduction and acid production of bacteria are mainly attached to the plaque. By brushing your teeth correctly in the morning and evening, most of the plaque on the neck and adjacent surfaces can be removed and the gums can be effectively protected.
Toothbrush is an important tool for oral health, so how to choose a suitable toothbrush? Toothbrushes with rounded bristles are the basic requirements for qualified toothbrushes. When choosing a toothbrush, you must first choose a brush with good bristles, moderate hardness, and moderate density, because too hard bristles will damage the enamel layer and gums on the tooth surface, while too soft bristles cannot clean. Secondly, the size of the selected toothbrush should match the size of the individual’s mouth and teeth. Most toothbrush packages have instructions on who is suitable for people or age groups, and can be selected according to the actual mouth and tooth size.
Generally speaking, it is recommended to use a small-head toothbrush, because the small-head toothbrush rotates flexibly in the oral cavity and is easy to reach places that are not easy to clean. For those with obvious interdental teeth and irregular teeth arrangement, it is recommended to choose a wave toothbrush or a special interdental toothbrush. Toothbrushes with elastic handles are especially suitable for those who like to brush their teeth vigorously, because this kind of toothbrush can slow down the transmission of force and protect the gums and teeth.
- Choose fluoride toothpaste:
The use of fluoride toothpaste and high-quality toothbrushes can enhance the effect of plaque removal, and protect teeth from acid production by bacteria, transform the hydroxyapatite structure of tooth enamel into more acid-resistant fluoroapatite, and can also repair Acid damaged tooth enamel.
- Healthy diet:
Calcium is an important component of tooth tissue, and baby teeth development cannot do without calcium. Pay attention to supplementing calcium from a variety of foods, such as milk, cheese and green vegetables, which are beneficial to the health of teeth.
- Eat less sugar or sugary snacks:
After eating sweets or sucrose-rich snacks, if you do not clean your teeth in time, the bacteria in the mouth will quickly convert sugar and starch particles into acidic substances, thereby destroying tooth enamel. Eating less sugar or sugary snacks is necessary to maintain dental health.
- Check teeth regularly:
Caries is a chronic disease. Under the combined effect of the above-mentioned cariogenic factors, tooth decay will appear in about one and a half years. Regular oral examinations at the dentist’s office can help you understand the incidence of the oral cavity and teeth, and treat them in time to prevent the continued development of caries.
