The chain of symptoms can be easily traced: the specialist mastered a number of modern treatment methods; passed training courses with famous masters; he has a good record of primary patients; there are no complaints about the quality of treatment, or they are rare, or remain undetected; against the background of colleagues, the doctor’s clinical results are no worse, and perhaps better, than those of colleagues; earnings are good; perhaps one of the mentors once praised for skillful hands.
For a person with reduced self-criticism, such a set of self-image is enough to feel the crown in my head and reason like this: “I am a pro”, “I know my job perfectly”, “I will always find a job for myself”. Continue reading
Heads of clinics and doctors often complain: after consultation, many patients do not stay for treatment, partially implement the recommended plans, or even refuse to follow the specialist’s suggestions, they want to save on everything, but get high-quality treatment and great guarantees. The dentist sincerely wants to help the patient to the maximum extent possible, but the patient behaves strangely, resisting his intentions: “I came to put a seal, and you offer me to take a panoramic picture, to carry out a whole treatment plan.”
One of the reasons for this situation is that commercial dentistry is very behind the growing consumer competence of the recipient of services Continue reading
Better to prevent than to cure. It is this argument that was used during the procedure of remineralization of teeth – an alternative method of treating caries, as opposed to rehabilitation and filling. The cause of the carious lesion is the influence of a microorganism, which in the process of its life releases acids that damage the enamel and structure of the tooth. In the process of destruction, the mineral structure of the tooth is thinning.
Remineralization is a response process that is aimed at saturating the tooth structure with mineral compounds that restore the healthy state of the tooth by preserving the enamel of the protein matrix.
The basis of the mineral structure of the teeth is fluorine and calcium, which in percentage terms occupy 57%. In their totality, the ratio of calcium and fluorine is uneven, but fluoride is responsible for the enamel resistance to acidic conditions. Calcium in combination with fluorine give a bond that simultaneously strengthens the tooth and resists the external environment. Continue reading
