WE CARE SECTIONING PROBLEMATIC TEETH
Sectioning problematic teeth facilitates their removal.
During the consultation appointment with a dental patient, decisions are made to do in house oral surgery or refer to a specialist.
Patients that come into dental offices have a wide variety of options regarding oral surgery.
Dental insurance benefits allow patients the option of general anesthesia for difficult surgery cases.
Patients without dental insurance may qualify to receive treatment in county hospitals at a reduced rate.
Neighborhood dental facilities subsidized by our tax dollars have a sliding fee scale charging patients according to their ability to pay.
A large segment of dental patients enter dental clinics, from the heart and soul of the American workforce.
These patients come for emergency dental care. They have chronic high pain levels usually putting off treatment for weeks at a time.
General practitioners make treatment decisions based upon what is best for the patient.
Patients unable to afford the services of oral surgeons become problematic for several reasons.
Pain medication and antibiotics have greatly reduced pain and suffering. They only help up to a point.
Sectioning problematic teeth facilitates their removal. Teeth have degrees of difficulty. Those with a high degree of difficulty are the best candidates for referral to oral surgeons.
Regarding discomfort associated with mandibular wisdom teeth, the upper wisdom tooth is easier to remove when erupted.
It takes pressure off the lower wisdom tooth providing relief to the patient.
Patents may also benefit from the removal of a portion of the tooth from the alveolar socket, another way of relieving pressure until the oral surgeon is seen.
Another technique is to remove pulp tissue as a temporary procedure when patients are suffering.
Patients are encouraged to receive routine dental care on a regular basis to avoid the possibility of interim or temporary procedures.
You will find patients requesting intermediary procedures after being up all night unable to sleep because of high pain levels.
Waiting until the 9th hour creates more problems for the dental patient.
These problems are resolved like problems being looked upon as knots in a ball of twine where each knot sista as a problem.
Dentists treat daily the problems that occur because of the patient’s level of procrastination regarding pventative dentistry.
Patients are surprised by the high level of comfort experienced in the process of their dental treatment.
One way to treat high pain levels is sectioning problematic teeth.
