A brief intro to Dentists

Who is a Dentist?

Dentists (دندان ساز) are medical experts who cater specifically to the oral health of their patients. They provide treatment for many dental problems using medicine and minor surgical procedures. They are also qualified to treat children and can make sure their teeth are growing properly.

These Dental experts also play an important role in informing people of good oral hygiene practices. Dentists (دانتوں کا ڈاکٹر) provide aesthetic care to people by helping them have straight and white teeth (دانت).

When should you see a Dentist?

Although there is insufficient research regarding how often you should visit the dentist (دانتوں کا ڈاکٹر) for routine checkups, there are certain symptoms that require intervention from an expert.

Any toothache, especially if it also involves swelling, is a cause for concern as this is often a symptom of infection. Similarly, swelling or inflammation of the gums is also not a good sign. It is best to schedule a visit to the doctor immediately, as prolonged gum disease can lead to greater damage that requires more robust treatment.

Furthermore, sensitivity is also a common problem that needs to be treated by a dentist. Any marks on the teeth or perpetual sores in the mouth are also to be examined by a dentist (دانتوں کا ڈاکٹر). Although the habit of grinding teeth may have several non-oral causes, your dentist can still help you overcome this habit.

Frequent dry mouth is also a sign of an oral health problem. Other reasons for visiting a dentist include bad breath, loose teeth, swelling in the jaw or neck, broken teeth or cracked ones and trouble chewing or biting due to pain.

Dentists are also responsible for providing cosmetic treatments for their patients. They are capable of treating people who have discoloured or stained teeth via whitening/bleaching(بلیچنگ) and cleaning procedures.

Children are more vulnerable to cavities ( گہا) and it’s important to watch out for the signs of cavities in them, especially those who are bottle fed. Moreover, those with alignment problems of the teeth also need to visit the dentist.

What are a Dentist’s main areas of concern?

Dentists diagnose and treat various conditions. The most common treatment is filling cavities that are formed due to poor dietary habits and lifestyle choices. They also treat various problems that result from deep-rooted cavities with procedures like a root canal.

Moreover, oral health specialists also help solve sensitivity issues that are indicated by the current-like sensation that accompanies intake of hot or cold food and beverages. Infections and disease of the oral cavity, jaw, salivary glands are also the domain of dentists. They also perform tooth extractions (دانت نکالنے).

Dentists are also involved in diagnostics. They perform biopsies to check for the presence of cancer. Some are also involved in performing tests to ascertain the diseases like infections and screen for oral cancer.

When it comes to treating children, dentists (دندان ساز) resolve problems related to the adult teeth coming out and pulling out of the milk teeth. They can thus foresee any issues with the oral development of a child. They also fit braces in children with overbite issues or crooked teeth.

As teeth form an important part of our external beauty, dentists are also concerned with helping people improve the appearance of their teeth. This includes processes like whitening and scaling. They often aid in the modeling and placement of dentures and other prosthetic paraphernalia for the oral cavity.

Dentists also perform the vital task of informing people about oral hygiene practices, not just to save their teeth, but also save themselves from embarrassing situations like bad breath.

What are the most common dental diseases in Pakistan?

The most common dental disease in Pakistan are dental caries, which has been found in a whopping 78% of adults and around 50% of children across the country.

The dietary habits that are prevalent in Pakistan are not conducive for oral health. Vices like betelnut, known as “chhalia” or “paan”, use of tobacco and high consumption of sugar have led to poor oral health all over the country. The water available to the masses also has low fluoride content, thereby compounding the problem.

Challenges facing the country include diseases like caries, gingivitis, dental fluorosis, edentulism, periodontal disease and the gravest, oral cancer.
