Every dentist should know and be able to!

Professional sociability is a set of skills of a doctor that allows him to exchange information with a patient in order to identify factors that determine the best treatment results, and at the same time provide a psychotherapeutic effect.

The communicative qualities of a doctor should be manifested in a measured manner: it is not required that he shine with eloquence and speak ingratiatively without ceasing. At the same time, the doctor should not be so involved in treatment that it interferes with communication with the patient.

“If a person puts his whole soul into his work, then he has nothing left to communicate with people.” Unknown author Continue reading

The specifics of direct art restoration of teeth

Aesthetic dentistry solves many problems in achieving a delightful smile. One of the techniques related to art restoration of teeth is artistic restoration. In general, the restoration of the tooth is to restore its original anatomical shape, shade, structure and other parameters. As a result, the restored tooth becomes indistinguishable from the adjacent healthy teeth. Art restoration of teeth is usually divided into direct and indirect.

Differences in the types of art restoration

With direct artistic restoration, tooth modeling and restoration of its destroyed parts is carried out by a dentist directly in the patient’s mouth. In this case, light curing restoration material (photopolymer or glass ionomer) is used. In the case of indirect restoration, a special treatment of the patient’s teeth is carried out, a cast is taken and laboratory manufacturing of the restored restoration part is made from ceramics.

Dental and oral care after prosthetics

Are there any features of caring for the oral cavity and teeth after prosthetics were performed in the absence of teeth? The doctor teaches the care of removable prostheses of the patient and, in most cases, there are no problems with him. But fixed prostheses require careful and regular care, which, however, practically does not differ from that with real teeth.

It is important to remember: the life of a fixed prosthesis and the condition of the remaining teeth depend on the quality of cleaning of dentures – both crowns and attachment points. 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
