What you need to remember in order not to lose your teeth?
Most people are completely sure that a dentist is needed only when a tooth hurts. This is a very erroneous opinion, which has rather sad consequences. Indeed, at an early stage, almost any disease of the oral cavity can be cured very quickly and painlessly. But only the dentist can see the first, barely noticeable signs of these diseases. At the same time, visiting the clinic does not cause any negative emotions: a cozy and comfortable atmosphere, an attentive doctor, quick and effective treatment in the shortest possible time. But so that a visit to the dentist always ends there, it is necessary to make it every six months.
Unfortunately, few people treat their teeth so carefully. But inflammation in caries patients is not only a dental problem. It is proved that such foci double the risk of stroke and lead to various diseases of many internal organs, especially the liver and kidneys. The most amazing thing is that the possibilities of modern dentistry are almost endless, especially in large cities where there are modern, well-equipped clinics. If, for example, you need restoration of teeth, Moscow will offer you such an extensive list of services that you can choose the best option for any criterion that interests you.
Nevertheless, quite a few people postpone visits to the dental clinic until the last moment, when nothing can be done but to remove the practically decayed tooth. Moreover, many believe that the absence of even a few teeth in the mouth is a completely normal phenomenon, so they are in no hurry to contact an orthopedic dentist. But this visit is simply necessary even after the loss of just one tooth.
The ideal option is to contact the prosthetist two weeks after the tooth is removed, especially if it is already the second or third of the lost ones. The absence of several teeth causes the teeth adjacent to the empty space to move, and those located on the opposite jaw (that is, from above or below) to extend and become mobile, this phenomenon is called Popov-Goddon syndrome. Moreover, in the absence of teeth on one side, a person begins to chew only on the other side, which leads to facial deformation. And the teeth remaining on the unused side remain completely without load, that is, they do not train, and therefore weaken and can also loosen and fall out.
You should also know that tooth extraction leads to a violation of the structure of the nervous system in the cerebral cortex and in the spinal cord. Neurons die, the regulation of most body functions changes, which leads to various diseases, including stomach ulcers, gastritis, hypertension, etc.
There is an opinion that dental diseases are hereditary, so no prevention will help here. The hereditary factor, of course, has a certain value, but with most diseases of the oral cavity, especially with the most common caries, it does not play any role. And all experts are unanimous in the opinion that it is prevention and timely access to a doctor that can prevent diseases and tooth loss, regardless of heredity.
