Do not need a rich imagination to come up with ten reasons not to go to the dentist: no time, money, effort, desire — but you never know what is not? And the truth is, it needs a Hollywood smile mere mortal? Let's listen to professionals common life situations doctor says
The situation first
Ivan, 45, manager of car sales. From morning to night work in their spare time, prefers to stay with friends. Since childhood, hate dentists. Recently noticed that began to redden gums, the wife offered to go to the doctor. Readily agreed. On Saturday morning told his wife that he went to the dentist, and headed to the bar.
— Sergey, tell whether a concern reddened gums?
— This color gums — a sign of inflammation, periodontitis. First, the changes are not very disturbed patients: there are a little itchy, bad breath, teeth become a little more mobile. But then joins the pain of teeth becoming crooked. In the final, the teeth become loose so that they can get by simply pulling the fingers. Naturally, the easier it is to stop the process, the sooner the patient recalls.
— Yes, gloomy prospects. And how to deal with it?
— Our task — to arrest the inflammation. Sometimes this is enough of Occupational Health, in other cases it is necessary to use operational methods. The fact that the cause of periodontal disease, as it is called an inflammatory process, — deposition on the roots of the teeth. Gums, in contact with them constantly provoked, and therefore to treat periodontitis, clean the roots of the teeth.
— But they are under the gum! We need a serious operation?
— It is not necessarily what the patient causing unnecessary pain when this advanced equipment. For example, we use the apparatus of «Vector», allowing to polish the tooth roots ultrasound, without cutting the gums. The procedure to get quick and painless, and in some cases radically solves the problem of periodontitis.

— What would you propose to Mary?
— When teeth are arranged irregularly, we apply the methods of orthodontics. Choice is wide: the different versions of braces, there are those few who catch your eye as well as the technology of Invisalign. In the latter case, the transparent caps that are practically not spoil the appearance of the patient. But this is an expensive option, because caps have to order in the USA.
The situation is the third
Ludmila, 60 years old, retired, raising a grandchild. Coming back from the store, slipped on an icy sidewalk, a fall knocked a tooth. Son offered to take her to a good dentist. But Lyudmila doubts that she had heard that a new tooth paste is not so simple. Son, of course, will pay, but is it worth it to bother? Especially if a broken tooth visible.
— Sergey, to live without teeth — what's wrong?
— Bad remaining teeth. When one element of the system is disposed of, the balance in the dentition is broken. The remaining teeth have unusually large load, and sooner or later they will not stand up to: start become loose and then may fall out.

— Previously, dentists usually offered to put the bridge. Now has more options, in such cases, we use implants. First, we carefully prepare the patient for surgery, if there is inflammation, it must be fully cured. In traumatic injuries when the tooth was originally for healthy, long-term training is not required. Then set the implant — an artificial tooth root analog. When the implant survives, we put on top of the crown, which is virtually indistinguishable in appearance from the tooth. Thus, one can close the gaps in a smile. And important functional aspect: Implants can replace lost teeth.
