The dental problems you experience, sometimes it's not enough just to be treated at one visit to the dentist. In fact, in some cases, the dentist cannot handle the treatment on your first visit. The doctor needs to carry out an examination and diagnosis first and then design the right treatment plan to treat your dental problem. Because dental handling is so complex, dentists also need your seriousness and commitment to work together so that your teeth can be handled optimally. Well, this collaboration means you have to follow the dentist's recommendation to commit to a series of treatments, which requires several visits that you must fulfill. Why is this commitment necessary?
If you want your teeth to be clean and healthy again as before, there is certainly an effort that you need to do. But if you don't really want your teeth to be handled properly, in the end your teeth won't heal properly, and are even prone to more complex problems.
For example, if you do a root canal treatment or root canal treatment to treat cavities to the roots. Typically, root canal treatment (RCA) requires a minimum of three to four visits. The RCA process itself is carried out in stages, each of which has been well regulated by the doctor. What will happen if you don't finish your dental work?
First, the incomplete RCA can make room for bacteria to re-infect the root canals in your problematic teeth, and the infection can even spread to other parts of your body. A study conducted on 283,590 people who did not complete their RCA treatment where they did not have a history of heart disease, found 3,626 of them had heart problems within an average period of 6 years.
Second, a study was also conducted on a number of patients in Japan who were divided into two groups, namely those who performed routine maintenance and those who did not complete their dental work. The study found that those who were not committed to their care tended to have a poorer quality of health than those who routinely went to the dentist.
We also need to remember that the health condition of your teeth and mouth greatly affects the overall health condition of your body. Therefore, never stop doing a series of dental treatments if you are not finished, because this can increase the risk of other health problems. But, that doesn't mean you choose not to do any treatment at all, because after all the problems with your teeth must be treated immediately because your teeth can't heal on their own. The important thing is how you are willing to commit and cooperate with the dentist so that your teeth are handled properly and avoid the risk of other diseases.
