Tustin, CA, 27th June 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, Dentistry involves much more than just your teeth. It is the study, diagnosis and treatment of diseases and disorders of the oral cavity and surrounding tissues and structures in the mouth. People tend to put caring for their teeth second to their bodily health or eye care because they think it is more pressing than the health of their mouth. Dr. Haque wants to people to readjust their priorities because teeth are crucial in our daily life, not just for eating and drinking but for your overall health. For example, if there is a bacterial infection in the mouth it can possibly spread to anywhere in your body; even to your brain. This will obviously cause major problems such as brain abscesses and may lead to life-threatening injuries and death. Monthly check-ups will prevent this from happening.
Sometimes the signs of an infection will not be so apparent so it is also important to get x-rays in addition to the examination. For example, cavities usually are not clearly present because some of them reside in the inside of the tooth. X-rays will show you where they are. It is important for the dentist to be fully qualified to examine your mouth because if they are not, then they might give you the incorrect diagnosis or treatment for your problem. Since your mouth is connected to your brain by an extremely complex neural network, you do not want to have someone who is inexperienced in dealing with dental issues because one slip-up could be fatal.
Root canals, for example, are a very delicate procedure. If the dentist does not have the correct education and practice, they could end up damaging the nerves in your teeth which could lead to permanent numbness or paralysis in your face. Imagine going to the dentist and walking out with a droopy eye because the dentist hit a nerve while doing a root canal. This is why it is so important that you find a qualified dentist who has experience dealing with the procedures that you need to have done.
Cavities are another major problem that can be extremely painful if not dealt with correctly. When you have a cavity, it means that there is decay present in your tooth. This decay can eventually lead to an infection if it is not treated properly. An infection in your tooth can be extremely painful and may even lead to death if it is not treated right away. This is why it is so crucial to make sure that you visit the dentist regularly so they can catch any cavities that you may have before they have a chance to turn into an infection.
