Ten years ago, my regular dentist in Auckland is a lady, not including filling, give me back my wisdom teeth pulled a worm eat. On that occasion, her hand pliers fall, I never came, it was deftly pulls out the accident and made a quick recovery after wound from impression it gives to my left wisdom teeth are a piece of cake.
Later on for more than 30 years made strenuous efforts to male dentist, he gave me a root canal therapy for the first time. Treatment is a long process, I sat on the couch bored very, several times lethargic, just hear the dentist and his assistant whispered: she seems to be asleep – the dentist later moved his practice when the pulp disease doctor who specialize in root canal therapy (endodontic dentist). This treatment is very successful, and was nothing like as scary as some people say pain or something, at this point, I had the United States dentist so much feeling, until he recommended me to an oral and maxillofacial surgeon (oral&maxillofacial surgeon) where to pull the other one has a tilt of wisdom teeth.
In General to undergo more training of specialists, dentists should be more proficient than the usually more professional, so this time I did not alert’s heart and subservience to the doctor. The surgeon huanghuangdangdang came in, took a peek at my wisdom teeth, haha said: haven’t tilted this tooth, too easy, and it won’t hurt! Then an anesthetic, off his pliers and clamps. Only listen to the tooth “bang” sound, accompanied by a dentist, “Oops”, I knew something bad. Really a dentist told me, pulled a half tooth roots broken in there, so it needs to be pulled. Larger this time than last time, and linger for half a day and pulled out a piece of it. I think this has been done under it, only to find it there – we also need to pull it again, he was careful to explain to me, a little there. A tooth can be broken into three pieces, what is this level, I am filled with wonder. This time than the previous two had more trouble, knife, cut and pulled with working length on my poor gums, bad teeth that poke out. Finally, the man someone made a concluding statement: I guarantee you it won’t hurt and you didn’t hurt, right?
It was the most terrifying experience of a dental surgery I returned home, local anesthetic failure, my mouth swelling and pain, fever all over, will be out for a few days no longer wounds don’t heal too long, since in retrospect happending. When I first came to United States, busy with work, that doctor is far away and I don’t go to the referral, just my own, too inexperienced. If set to today, my doctor thought it might sue the bastards.
Then I heard, even though income money, dentist, is a very boring job, them day after day, doing the same job year after year, some of them began drinking heavily, and even look for another stimulus, will inevitably affect the patient’s treatment.
From then on, I began to be wary of dentistry. My routine dentist because it dealt extensively, on the level of their idea, but was seconded to the other specialist there, I will try to find out, for example, look at their user ratings on the Internet or ask a few more questions in the interview assessment for the first time see their reactions and attitudes, and then decide whether to let them do it in my teeth. So, I successfully done the traditional gum surgery and once again the Crown surgery.
Even so careful, also was back. One day, my tooth hurts all of a sudden, and had to go to the emergency room, unfortunately my daily dental is not, and encountered another half-assed doctors. Firstly, he said that my teeth are hopeless and only pull out, then asked my allergies are ampicillin, gave me a pack of amoxicillin tablets to get sterilized. After I ate, allergy attacks, covered with rashes, itches to awake, call the dentist, and he pushed me to my family doctor. Family doctors have heard my story, eyes and mouths into O, cried out: he does not know that these two kinds of medicine are two of a kind? The mind boggles! My allergy cure forever to make peace. I have to watch out for more factors: meds before you find out for yourself whether security, some dentists prescribe medicine. Moreover, the half-baked dentists advise pulling teeth, then by my regular dentist did root canal therapy, added to the Crown, the operation is successful.
Last month, I wash my teeth with a regular check, I found some chewing gums of the teeth because of the existence of some bacterial infection foci, with 8, 9 mm tooth bone loss, so my dentist recommended I go see a specialist in gum disease (periodontist). I once had a gum surgery experience, very miserable. Dentists cut my gums Kaka, cut part, called the mouthful of teeth and then plaster. Afterwards, I had bilateral parotitis, mumps or two high, for a long time can only eat liquid diets, has several weeks to recover, doctors heard depending on periodontal disease, felt very guilty fear. But my dentist said that if like this roam free, perhaps soon my teeth because the tooth was missing bone support will fall, so I’m having to.
When the periodontal disease doctor appointment, found that he was very busy, we have to wait for more than two weeks. Interview is screening and diagnosis for the first time, I thought to myself, you examine me, and I have to interview to see if you qualify. On that day, I saw a fit, middle-aged men look cool, quickly examined my teeth, and suggested laser gum surgery – laser removal of gingival part of the sick, and clean where calculus, and then with a laser to seal bleeding capillaries. I said I had gum surgery, very painful, ask him if he has no choice, such as local delivery approaches such as antibiotics. He immediately answered fluently, antibiotics only for six months, so continuous medication, and long-term treatment effects are not good. I asked which brand of rinse water mains, he smiled and said, all the mouthwash can only enter 1, 2 mm depth of gums, and my lesions in 7, 8 mm, don’t go there at all. He then explained that the wound much smaller than the traditional laser gum surgery, you can recover in two days, and surgery to do only half of the teeth on one side and regular diet, there are a lot of pain. I think the doctor quick action, actions, and answer fluently, also very trustworthy-I don’t believe in long sloppy Wo loser capsule one can make beautiful operation, on its own cannot be responsible for, how accountable to others, so he agreed to try one-fourth.
According to statistics, United States one-third people suffer from varying degrees of periodontal disease. Laser gum surgery was developed by two dentists in California beginning in 1991 and used, known as the Laser-assisted new attachment procedure (the LANAP Protocol), and, in 2004, been approved by the FDA. Compared with the traditional gum surgery, wound small treatment effect is good, the price is comparable to the traditional surgery. Unfortunately there is, because the technology is relatively young, many dentists do not give patients the surgery, I met a doctor who be eager to learn.
Surgery at noon yesterday, cool doctors still face deft, half an hour to finish. Anesthetic effect disappears, almost did not feel pain or bleeding, swelling of the cheek and no, instructions say do not use the side teeth to eat within two days, and not specifically to eat something hard, such as peanuts, nuts, besides eating the swelling drug, sooner or later it’s going to take the medicine mouthwash. Basically, don’t feel much inconvenience after the surgery, and now just one day more, hardly feel any discomfort. This met a good dentist.
