Being a dentist can be one of the most tiring and yet inspiring jobs on this planet. Everybody has a mouth yet each mouth is different from one another as the components inside a mouth can change from person to person.
Teeth are supposed to be the strongest bones in our body that even after the death of a person; the teeth are the last to get decayed. If the entire body is burnt and the person is burnt beyond recognition, it is the dental records of the person that will enable the authorities to figure out the identity of the person.
Studying and executing the practise of dental care is one to be praised and one which isn’t talked as much as other common topics where we decided to interview a dentist and get his views on certain oral care matters.
The most difficult things to do as a dentist
Generally as a doctor, the most difficult thing would be to make the patient understand what caused the discomfort or the disease in the first place as depending on the level of intelligence a person may/ may not understand what caused the pain.
Dentists, according to the one we discussed faces the most difficulty when they are engaged in dental surgery as the process involves fine tools and very tiny measurement criteria and also, other than any other surgery it can be one of the most painful as there are a bunch of nerves running in and around the mouth. The patience of a dentist is really put to test when a small child has to face an operation inside the mouth.
The most common oral problems
According to the dental doctor, the most common problems are related to decayed teeth and damaged gum. The doctor says regardless of the age and gender the clinic gets filled with patients waiting for filling and wisdom tooth extraction in Singapore. This is according to the dentists, mostly due to the bad eating habits as the most food and beverages that we consume today can be very harmful for the body as well as the insides of a mouth.
According to him, these problems are most commonly seen among the young children as they tend to eat lots of sweets and candy which gets easily deposited on the teeth and inside the mouth due to their stickiness.
Can we prevent oral problems?
According to the dentist, as long as we eat and drink we cannot avoid oral diseases and problems as along with the consumption, particles and bacteria gets deposited inside the mouth, resulting in many problems.
However, he suggests that with proper and regular care, the damages and the impact of these problems can be minimized from a very young age and suggests that all the adults and parents encourage children from a very young age to visit the dentists and to keep oral health in check to avoid serious problems when they grow up.
