Preventative plans ‘could help people avoid emergency dentistry’


Emergency dentistry will be the result of neglecting teeth in the long term.Going to the dentist regularly and keeping up with a good oral health regime could help people to avoid needing emergency dentistry.

This is the advice of Dr Michael McCarty, owner of Austin Smiles in the US, who said everyone is guilty of not flossing or brushing properly once in a while, but taking teeth for granted is not a good idea in the long run.

He explained that seeing a dentist regularly will help people to understand the importance of caring for their teeth properly and could be the difference between needing emergency dentistry later in life and not.

“Comprehensive dental plans not only aim to maintain healthy teeth, but also healthy gums, tongue and overall mouth,” Dr McCarty added.

Last month, Ken Schweifler of the Los Angeles Town Crier urged people not to let their anxiety of going to the dentist get in the way of good oral health, insisting that preventative treatments are necessary in reducing the likelihood of emergency dentistry.

Dental problems ‘do not always have obvious symptoms’


Dental problems are not always easy to spotSome people may require emergency dentistry because they only go for a check-up when they start to experience pain.

This is according to one expert, who said some patients are in denial about needing treatment.

Ken Schweifler wrote for the Los Angeles Town Crier that many treatable ailments, such as dental decay and periodontal disease, do not have any obvious symptoms.

However, modern technology such as X-rays means they can be detected straight away, thus avoiding the need for emergency dentistry.

“Today’s dentists are highly trained to identify problems in their earliest stages and render technically demanding treatments that conserve tooth structure and prevent tooth loss,” Mr Schweifler added.

He said that until recent technological developments, pain was the only indication of a serious dental problem.

Anxiety ‘may lead to emergency dentistry’


Some people are frightened of the dentistAnxiety can mean some people end up needing emergency dentistry, it has been suggested.

Writing for the Los Angeles Town Crier, Ken Schweifler described how a negative experience in the dentist’s chair can lead to fears about going for a check-up.

However, he said this may turn into a catch-22 type of situation.

Because people are anxious about receiving treatment they do not visit the dentist on a regular basis, meaning they miss out on preventative maintenance, Mr Schweifler explained.

This leads to more serious problems and, as a result, they require emergency dentistry.

“This traumatic experience then reinforces the dental phobia,” he added. “They never experience the rewards that come with uneventful checkups and achieving dental health.”

Children also require regular check-ups and recently reported that according to the American Academy of Paediatric Dentistry, youngsters should go to the dentist before they are one year old.ADNFCR-2621-ID-19903747-ADNFCR
