Dentist check

Posted by Dental News Team am 23, Mar - 2011

Is it possible for patients to check their dentists?

We say: Yes!

How to reveal an unethical dentist?

Let´s keep the bad tooth, is he getting bad before, we can use it for the dentures.
Ouch: Teeth are not becoming bad! If the dentist argues that way he has no conception of dentistry-more on this in the video dental anomalies and cavity.

The tooth is bad, it has to be extracted!
Ouch: What does that mean? Either the dental care has not been sufficient, or you are not brushing your teeth adequately. Biological systems aren´t bad per se; concept of cause-effect!

You are suffering from parodontosis and therefore you need to improve your oral hygiene!
Ouch: It is called: Periodontitis, a slight difference with a major importance. Moreover a periodontitis is not treated with oral hygiene, but with periodontal therapy. However, you can increase the change of successful outcome of the periodontal therapy if you improve your oral hygiene.

I am making a crown with the material XY, it is more expensive, but better!
Ouch: The crown materials have little to do with  money. Moreover, the materials which are licensed in the respective country are tested biologically and therefore considered as “good”. Use this link to get more informations on the factors of prices!

Cofferdam is not important and can damage the gums!
Ouch: The cofferdam bracket can irritate the gums though this irritation is reversible. Acid/adhesive techniques (e.g. ceramic inlays, plastic fillings) should not be performed without using a coffer dam, as well as root canal treatments.

A gold inlay is better than a ceramic inlay!
Ouch: A ceramic inlay, if performed accurately, is “tighter” than a gold inlay. However, a gold inlay can last thirty years or longer. It depends on the material which is more commonly used by the dental technician. An experienced dentist or technician, who have worked with gold inlays for many years would use gold inlays. You can  find your perfect dentist on 🙂

What qualifies as a reliable dentist?

You´ll receive a written summary before the first medical call.
After the first medical call you get a summary of data, results, diagnosis (via postal mail, e mail). An offer of sanitation is not usual but welcomed, because of costing! A dentist who has nothing to hide gives you all the information for comparison.

The doctor takes time for the first call!
Gut feeling is essential. Does the doctor recommend expensive treatments, or he talks about more affordable alternatives? Somebody who presents to you all all the available options is interesetd in medicine, and has your best interest at heart,  not just the benefit part of it!

How trustworthy does the dentist and the presented information feels like?
All medical phenomena obey the concept of cause-effect!
Medical processes such as diseases refer to a cause, which should be discussed understandingly by reliable doctors. The information should be presented to you in a manner easy for you to comprehend!
