A lot of people think that a tooth is like a copper pea, which is a solid structure and extremely hard. In fact, our tooth structure is very complex. As shown in the above figure, our teeth contain enamel, dentin, cementum, pulp and so on, which is a hollow structure; The complex tooth structure leads to the complexity of dental treatment, so there are the following situations:
All of them are cavities, and the times of treatment (filling) are different
Some people care about their teeth very much. As soon as they find decayed teeth, they immediately go to the hospital for examination. At this time, the surface of decayed teeth (cavities) is only in the enamel layer or the superficial layer of dentin, so the impact on the pulp (dental nerve) is small, so the treatment (filling) can be completed in a few times
And some people did not go to the hospital in time, until there is a feeling of cold and hot pain to the hospital, at this time our dental pulp (dental nerve) has been more obvious stimulation, doctors in order to retain pulp tissue (dental nerve), will take conservative treatment, first protective treatment, observe the reaction of pulp (dental nerve), please observe the patient after a number of time Therefore, the number of treatment increases and the corresponding treatment fee is more expensive
The more serious situation is that the surface of the tooth is only decayed (decayed teeth), but it has actually affected the dental pulp (dental nerve). At this time, when you go to the hospital, the doctor will ask you to do root canal treatment (that is, nerve treatment as we usually call it). In order to thoroughly remove the infection in the root canal (that is, inside the teeth), your treatment frequency will be more, and the cost of treatment will be when But it’s higher.
Therefore, it is not the doctor who decides the number of treatment (filling) of cavities, but whether you take good care of your teeth, check and see a doctor in time. If you find cavities, you should go to the hospital for examination at the first time!
Both of them are neurotherapy, with different times and costs
Different tooth anatomical structures are different. The anterior teeth (i.e. the incisors and the tiger teeth) are relatively simple in root canal system (i.e. the tooth nerve) in the back teeth is much more complex
The anterior teeth usually have only one root canal (nerve canal), and the posterior teeth have three, four, or five, or even more, and the posterior teeth have smaller root canals (nerve canals), which are more difficult to treat
You think, the front teeth are in front of your mouth, which is easy for you to open, and it is easy for doctors to see and operate. But for the back teeth, your mouth is not open, the light is poor, the vision is not clear, and the root canal (nerve canal) is more and more small. Of course, it is more difficult for doctors to treat them
Therefore, in order to help you completely solve the pain, there will be longer time for doctors to treat, more times to treat, and higher costs.
Therefore, different people have different anatomical structures of teeth, especially the root canal (nerve canal) morphology of posterior teeth, so the treatment is also very different
There is a correlation between dental diseases and systemic diseases
In many people’s eyes, teeth are isolated. In fact, teeth are an organ of the body and a part of the body, which is related to the health of the body
Cardiovascular disease affects oral health
Clinical investigation found that almost all patients with coronary heart disease have periodontitis.
therefore, the effect of periodontal treatment in patients with cardiovascular disease may be poor, and the doctor may suggest that you go to the cardiovascular department for examination and treatment
The oral treatment effect of diabetic patients is poor
Patients with diabetes mellitus are more likely to suffer from pain, discomfort and slow recovery after dental treatment due to their lower immunity and resistance and weaker recovery skills
The effect of dental implant on smoking patients was poor
In recent years, dental implant is becoming more and more popular in China. However, studies have shown that the success rate of dental implantation in smokers is lower than that in non-smokers.
therefore, after implanting, doctors ask patients to quit smoking, and some patients do not follow the doctor’s advice, which may lead to implant failure
Therefore, we should not underestimate dental diseases or treat dental diseases in isolation. We should look at our teeth from the perspective of the whole body
There are differences among individuals
For example, there are white people, black people, yellow people and brown people; some people of the same race are high, some people are low; some people are fat and some people are thin; there are large individual differences between different people, so the following situations will appear
Some people don’t need extraction, but I do
Orthodontic treatment (that is, orthodontic treatment, as we often say, Orthodontics) is an extremely complex professional technology. The doctor will make the most appropriate treatment after a comprehensive examination and detailed evaluation for each patient.
some people have uneven teeth, but the bone mass (that is, the place where the teeth attach) is enough, so the doctor may not ask him or her to extract teeth for orthodontic treatment; But some patients, teeth crowding, bone is not enough, of course, request extraction orthodontic treatment, just like the room can only accommodate 12 people, can not expand, and there are 14 people, then can only ask 2 people out
His or her removable denture is very easy to use, but mine has to be adjusted many times
The removable denture, especially the complete removable denture, mainly relies on the stress of the gingiva (mucosa) and the bone below. The good condition of the gingiva (mucosa) and the bone below the gingiva is good, the bearing capacity is good, and the effect is relatively good; However, some patients, due to the loss of teeth for a long time and other reasons, the remaining alveolar ridge in the mouth (that is, the bone under the gingiva in the mouth) is low and flat, so its stress capacity is poor, and it is easy to cause pain, so it is necessary to have more follow-up visits for adjustment and wear denture
Therefore, due to the tooth anatomy, the influence of body and body factors and personal oral conditions, the frequency, cost and effect of oral treatment may be different among different people
