Is Dentistry Expensive!

Is dentistry expensive? 

One word answer to this will be a No!

Dentistry is not expensive, delay is.

Usually we dentist recommend to come for check up every 6 months, but we all are lazy especially for our own health. Going for a picnic or going to mall is all right but going for health check up is a big no.
As a result the small cavities which were possible to treat in 1 sitting, half an hour & less expense turns into a deeper cavity, reaching pulp & causing painc  & that is when we run to our dentist. We do get calls at midnight or early morning when we are not out of bed! pain is there since 2-3 days but now it has become severe! most of the time tooth requires root canal treatment or extraction.Patients do complain very time I come to you, you suggest root canal to which my reply is only time you come to me when you have pain. 
Now the same tooth which was possible to treat in 1 sitting becomes 6-8 sittings, half an hour becomes 5 hours & expense becomes 8-15 times.

If you got your wisdom tooth removal, then you are supposed not to spit and consume hot beverages and food for first 24 hours. Later after 24 hours, you can eat and drink normally but from the opposite side. Consume medication prescribed on time and ask your doctor if the medication is safe for the nursing mother. Start warm saline rinses after 24 hours to fasten healing. Do intimate if you have any further query.

My 18 month old daughter has got a blackened front tooth. Today we consulted a doctor who advised that tooth is dead now and gums are getting infected. The dead tooth needs to be extracted immediately. We took second opinion from another doctor who confirmed that there is infection but can be treated with root canal. When my daughter was 9 months old we noticed a pinkish tinge on this tooth which gradually kept on darkening and is almost black now. Need help whether we should get the tooth extracted or get root canal done or consult someone else if it can be treated through medicines.

Dear lybrate-user ji, the tooth is dead for sure and is due to some old insult to the tooth which would have gone unnoticed. If the bone is healthy and not mobile, we can save it 100% and an E max laminate or crown can be placed and that shall solve the problem. For more please consult.

Dental implant is a good option for missing tooth. Procedure starts with anaesthesia only, so it won't be painful. For cavities you can go ahead with filling or root canal (depending on extend of caries) as per dentist advice.

It is not possible for us to suggest without looking at the x-ray and knowing the case details. You should follow the instructions of your dentist. And if you have doubt then Consult another dentist for second opinion in person.
