The best dental treatment depends on the person and how they experience their teeth, says Professor Ian Stansfield of the University of Exeter’s School of Dentistry.
“You can make dentistry as comfortable as possible and then you can treat the underlying problem,” he says.
“You can have people who have good teeth, and they can have bad teeth, but you can’t expect that everyone’s going to have a good dental experience.”
Stansfield says the dentist should use a technique called “lidocaine treatment”, where the dentist fills a hollow space in the tooth with a solution of lidocaine, which stops the bacteria growing inside the tooth, preventing decay.
A good dentist’s job is to ensure that the patient has no oral cavity issues.
Stanfield says it is possible to treat the root cause of dental problems by treating the underlying cause, so that a person with poor dental hygiene or tooth decay will be able to get better treatment.
But it is not always possible to get root cause treatment, and if you are experiencing problems with your teeth, it may be best to see a specialist to determine the cause of the problem.
For example, if your dentist is having difficulty removing plaque, or if you have gingivitis, it is a good idea to have an X-ray to see what is causing the problem, Stansfields says.
The most common dental problems are: a) gum disease: gum, tooth and pulp are damaged in plaque, causing gum disease.
B) tooth decay: tooth decay causes plaque, which can lead to decay.
C) dental problems: there are many dental problems that can affect your health, such as: an overactive immune system, an autoimmune disease, or a lack of dental care.
D) infection: bacteria can cause an infection, which may or may not be harmful to your health.
In some cases, it can be difficult to find the right dentist for you.
