The panic fear of medical procedures per se and visits to the dentist in particular, unfortunately, is not unique to children. Many of those who have long since left preschool age experience discomfort when they think that in the near future they will have to go to the dentist. Were their will, they would never have crossed the threshold of a dental clinic in life. However, taking care of one’s own health takes its toll.

For those who are used to taking their own health seriously and in case of doubtful situations are always ready to call for help from doctors, finding the dentist who would satisfy their physiological, financial and psychological needs will not be the slightest problem.

One of the problems of irregular, poor-quality care may be the increased sensitivity of the gums due to their infection, their bleeding, which in the end can lead to the loss of supporting teeth, which means loss of the prosthesis. An important problem is the smell. Poorly brushed teeth, dentures create a lot of problems with bad breath, which is more difficult to eliminate if the condition of the oral cavity is severely neglected. Continue reading
