Dental problems ‘do not always have obvious symptoms’

Thu

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 nvdaily.com 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
