Dental technology and expertise, along with everything else in the 21st century have developed at a staggering pace leaving the older ways of working almost obsolete. Mobile phones, virtual reality and of course the internet have changed the way we live forever, and these changes have also made their mark on the worlds of dentistry and medicine. People are now living longer than they have ever done and as a result need dentistry and medical services for a longer period of time. Gone are the days when a sore tooth was extracted with a piece of string and you were told to go home with a gap in your mouth, todays dentists can not only save the tooth but also provide a tailormade replacement within a matter of days.
Dentists have also long been feared by children, but the clinics of today now have dentists that specialise solely on children’s teeth! They put the child at ease and tailor their techniques and approach, so the children are no longer frightened of the dentist or indeed the thought of the dentist! Paediatric Dentistry in Thailand has evolved to such an extent that children actually look forward to the dentist! As unbelievable at it sounds, these dental specialists have devised ways to actually encourage a child to take interest in their teeth and the importance of regular check-ups.
Among other things, a highly regarded Paediatric Dentist can perform/advise on the following:
- Oral Hygiene Care instruction
- Diet Counselling for Oral Health
- Fluoride Treatment
- Pit and Fissure Treatment
- Athletic Mouthguard for Sports Injury Prevention
Restorative Dental Services
Experienced paediatric dentists can also carry out restorative services including fillings, crowns and anterior aesthetic crowns. Other restorative services carried out on adults are not generally considered for children until they have their second set of teeth. According to many specialists, tooth decay in infants is 100% preventable, so asking for advice might even save you from visiting the dentist at all.
Modern Dentistry Pricing
Modern dentistry does come at a cost, but perhaps not as much as you might think. Considering the level of treatment received and the final results, most treatments actually represent great value for money. Elective treatment such as tooth whitening or veneers are generally more expensive than essential treatment such as fillings and wisdom tooth surgery and are priced accordingly. Getting very cheap dental treatment is essentially risky, as you have to ask yourself how they can afford to do it so cheaply compared to other established dentists. If you are going to be extravagant, be extravagant about your teeth and pay for the highest quality dental treatment you can afford. Your teeth will certainly thank you in the future and your quality of life will be consistent as a result. Make tooth pain and unsightly teeth a thing of the past and engage the services of a highly experienced and forward thinking 21st century dentist.
