Dental prosthetics: why do you have such prices?
Why do prices in Moscow depend on dental prosthetics? It would seem – similar materials, the same technology and equipment. But the cost of services includes not only general parameters, but also individual ones – such as the condition of the patient’s dentofacial system, the presence of conditional contraindications, which must be eliminated before prosthetics.
The general issues of pricing traditionally include the cost of consumables, and these are not only materials directly for the manufacture of the prosthesis, but also drugs, burs, scalpels. So, ceramic-metal prosthetics are more expensive, including at the cost of preliminary work, than those when carrying out prosthetics with bridges. The use of modern drugs with a minimum of side effects – which means that they are practically safe for the patient – is more expensive than drugs for the same purposes, but created much earlier.
This also includes payment for consumed water and electricity, tax deductions. Costs are also depreciation of the equipment used – and it is not cheap in good clinics, respectively, depreciation costs will also not be low.
The cost includes the payment for the work of the doctor and his assistants, including a specialist in the manufacture of prostheses. Part of the profit works directly for patients: the purchase of new equipment and new modern supplies, the training of doctors. It’s worth mentioning separately about the qualifications of doctors: dentistry, like any science, does not stand still. New technologies, new methods and principles of treatment and prosthetics require timely study. Doctors who have maintained a level of professionalism at the level of a long-completed clinical residency, significantly lose to their colleagues, periodically increasing the level of knowledge on modern bases.
What is the practical use of this information for patients? Firstly, information on the cost of certain dental services will help to deduce the average price for them. Secondly, an assessment of the location of clinics, the quality of the materials used will also help in choosing. Thirdly, with all other conditions being equal, including the cost of services, it will be possible to choose a clinic where well-established doctors work.
Perhaps our clinic will be your choice. Reception in our clinic is conducted only by the most qualified specialists with academic degrees, they use the most advanced reliable materials and equipment.
Various means are intended for oral hygiene: toothbrushes and toothpaste, rinses, dental flosses. Almost everyone regularly knows that they need to be used, but knowledge about the correct brushing technique and interdental space leaves much to be desired. Meanwhile, the condition of the teeth and gums depends on the correct use of the brush, on the proper choice of toothpaste.
Dentists warn that toothpicks are contraindicated, their use leads to serious injury between the dental spaces, and can cause inflammation. Brushes for teeth and interdental spaces (they are also called proxies) and rubber stimulators-massagers for the gums should be selected by the dentist, as they come in different stiffness, diameter and length.
Toothpaste needs to be changed at least once a month, because the microflora of the oral cavity quickly gets used to the active components of the toothpaste. With improper care for teeth and gums, harmful bacteria begin to multiply very quickly and in the form of a thin film (and with irregular hygiene and in the form of an extensive dense plaque) linger on the teeth. And if these layers of plaque are not cleaned, then the next “portions” of plaque are easily fixed, thus increasing the new layers. Under the attack, a favorable environment is created for bacteria, which, actively multiplying, lead to the formation of caries, bleeding, and subsequently gingivitis and other gum pathologies. Periodontitis is especially dangerous, which is often the result of poor dental care (especially in the presence of predisposing factors). With it, the ligamentous apparatus of the tooth is destroyed, pathological tooth mobility develops.
There was always a snow-white, pearl smile in fashion, and therefore the popularity of the teeth whitening procedure is understandable. The most effective and at the same time safe is whitening in the dentist’s office. The doctor will not only see contraindications for whitening, but will also select the optimal degree of it and notice the risk of side effects in time.
