Dental caries treatment results are not terrible

Caries A composite of various factors such as the oral cavity dental hard tissue effect is caused by sexually transmitted diseases, loss, performance of demineralized inorganic and organic matter decomposition, with the progression from the color changes to a substantial evolution of the lesions formed. Dental caries is a common oral disease. The dangers of dental caries Most people should have deep experience, suffering from dental caries, often difficult to sleep in the bedroom, will seriously affect lung function. Recently, researchers in the United States said that bacteria found on dental caries can enter the lungs of the body and cause the elderly to have potentially fatal pneumonia .

The researchers said they found solid evidence on eight patients that their pneumonia was caused by dental problems. The researchers examined 49 patients living in an elderly apartment that often visited a nearby hospital, a high-risk area of ??pneumonia. Before they had pneumonia, the researchers sampled mouth bacteria and found that 28 of the samples contained bacteria that could cause respiratory problems. Then they tracked the elderly and watched closely whether they were infected with pneumonia. Finally, 14 elderly people were infected with pneumonia, and 10 of the oral bacterial samples contained pathogens that could cause respiratory diseases. Examination of lung bacteria showed that eight elderly lung bacterial DNA matched their oral bacterial DNA.


Dental caries is a hotbed of respiratory pathogens that can cause pneumonia in the elderly living in medical settings. Therefore, we must do the following two points:


1, to develop good oral health habits


Developing good oral health habits is crucial to preventing tooth decay. At present, people commonly use the method of cleaning the mouth is mainly mouthwash, brushing and scaling. It should be noted that people should gargle after three meals a day, each mouthwash should use about 40 degrees Celsius warm water; sooner or later should brush each tooth.


Toothbrush to choose the kind of soft bristles moderate. Brush your teeth at the root of your teeth while brushing your teeth. When brushing teeth from top to bottom brush, brushing teeth from bottom to top brush. Each brushing should be in accordance with the order from the inside out, from left to right brush, to ensure that each tooth can brush, each brush at least 3 minutes. Decontamination includes flossing your own teeth and going to the hospital to have your doctor clean your teeth.


The benefit of flossing teeth is that they can be cleaned to the tooth flank and back of the toothbrush. The average adult should floss their teeth once a month. And to the hospital to clean the teeth can thoroughly remove the dirt on the teeth, calculus and residues. General adults should go to the hospital twice a year to clean the teeth.


2, to conduct regular oral examination


Caries damage to human teeth is irreversible. Therefore, people should regularly go to the hospital for oral examination, once found suffering from dental caries, it is necessary for timely treatment. Many adults believe that caries prevention is a child's problem and that adults do not need caries control. This view is wrong.


In fact, dental caries damage to the teeth of adults is also quite serious. Therefore, experts suggest that adults (especially those over 50 years of age) should go to the hospital to check their teeth once a year.


Prevention of caries is divided into three levels.


A primary prevention to promote health, that is, to improve oral hygiene education, formulation and implementation of nutrition intake plan, regular oral health examination; special protective measures, namely the use of fluoride caries, pit and fissure sealant and preventive prophylaxis of initial caries.


Secondary prevention for early diagnosis, early treatment, including regular oral examination, the use of X-ray diagnosis of dental caries for early filling.


Tertiary prevention To prevent dysfunction and rehabilitation, dental pulp disease caused by dental caries and periapical disease are treated to preserve the teeth, prevent the spread of the disease to the deep alveoli, to remove the severe lesions and prevent the alveoli Abscesses and facial infections repair dentures and tooth loss to restore the physiological function of the occlusal system.
