18/09/22

There are more people today, facing tooth loss commonly among the elderly,  due to aging  baby boomers.  One Survey taken estimates that 37 millions Americans will need dentures by 2020.  In an article taken from the Journal of Oral Implantology reports on an alternative treatment to dentures. The “All-on-Four” therapy uses four implants to support a fixed prosthesis, and the patient’s new teeth can be put in place the day of surgery.

The All-on-Four treatment maximizes the use of available bone and allows immediate functionality. Four implants are placed two near the front and two near the back of the dental area. These support a fixed, full-arch prosthesis that is put in place the same day as the surgery. The success of this therapy is judged not only by its comfort and usability for the patient, but also by its longevity

Delayed Dental Treatment Can Kill – Dental Insurance Healthcare

15/09/22

There have been cases where people have died due to untreated dental infections. Cost of dental care was the common reason as to why dental care services was continuously put off. Yet by having proper preventive dental care before larger issues can develop, cost dose not have to be a factor.  In fact there are many good low cost dental insurance plans that offer free to very low cost preventive care services.

Another other problem is that many people (even those with dental benefits) do not take dental care seriously and will completely avoid even simple dental check-ups. Stating that they do not have the time or that their teeth are not hurting them so why bother. Sadly that is a common attitude to have even in regards to health care. Many people do not see a doctor unless there is something bothering them.  Preventive care can not only save your teeth but your life as well.

After having one or more teeth extractions, you will want to take proper care in order to heal quickly and smoothly. Once a tooth is removed a blood clot is formed.  The blood clot covers the extraction site which allows the area to heal.

When you sleep for the first night do your best to keep your head up with pillows.

In the first day after the extraction you may have some bleeding.  Your dentist will usually provide a few gauze pads for this.  Just place the pad in the area and you should try and keep firm pressure on it.  Slight bleeding for the first day or so is normal, but if you still bleed more heavily after an hour or two, contact your dentist.

Do not rinse your mouth during the first twenty-four hours, after this period you can gently rinse your mouth using warm salt water.  You will want to rinse after every meal and snack in order to remove any bits of food around the extraction area.

11/05/22

According to a recent study it suggest that not enough dentist are using dental sealants to help protect back teeth.  Temple University’s dental school researchers who did the study, surveyed 595 general dentists and 176 pediatric dentists.

In 2008 the ADA endorsed the use of sealants n teeth with the earliest stages of decay. In these stages, a molar or premolar is discolored on its chewing surface, but there is no cavity in the tooth yet. Research has shown that sealing teeth like this can prevent cavities. However the new survey found that many dentist do not either know about the ADA panel’s advise or the dentist that do know do not agree with it.  It also show that Pediatric dentist were more likely to follow the recommendations then general dentist. This study appears in the September issue of the Journal of the American Dental Association.
