This Article is for Dental Patients to Understand Aspects of Dental treatments
The Biggest Question?
If You are in Pune , There are more than 3000 Dentists around You. All of these dentist are qualified for dental treatments. But still more than 70% patients require Re-Treatment for same dental problems. Why ? Lets Analyze Reasons.
Less Patient Education
Patients do not know what Treatment will go in the long run and which will fail in Few years
Example : A Properly done root canal will last for lifetime ,Else it will later cause even bigger infection
Not using available Technology
Newer Technology for 3D Xrays/CBCT gives a better insight to doctor before starting treatment and to check treatment Execution
If Available technology is not used , prediction of treatment success is poor
Example : By Using CBCT in Implant Surgery ,has improved success rate significantly
Poor Materials Choice
Dental Materials like - Composite Filling material , Root Canal materials , Implants , Capping Materials etc are bought by the dentist for your treatment.
The dentist will use the materials which he can afford as per the amount received by the patient.
Example : Any Dentist who gets paid 1000rs for a Dental Filling from a patient cannot use 2000Rs worth dental Materials
Cheaper materials are made with cheaper ingredients and hence give a limited life to treatment.
Example: Strength of a 1000Rs Material is Less against a 2000Rs Material , So next time when you Eat Bhakarwadi , It will crack and after few months or a Year you may require New Filling.
Ignorance to dental health
It is very Important to follow the instructions given by your dentist.
Although a Excellent Treatment is done by the dentist it can fail in future, if the patient fails to follow the hygene instructions or other instructions given by doctor.
Routine Chech-up, timely treatment is most important for lifetime of dental health.
Doctors are not God, They Just Repair the body.
So a repaired part will never have strength equal to a new part & must be taken care of.
