Asking about bleeding when visiting the dentist.

  Below we will introduce the relevant content about the problem of bleeding when seeing a dentist, which will take you about two to three minutes to browse. Thank you for your reading.

1. What should I do if I have tooth decay? Go for a checkup to determine the necessary treatment and do not delay.

2. What should I do if my tooth is chipped? It depends on the depth and size of the chip. If it is not deep and not too large, a root canal treatment followed by a crown restoration may be possible. If it is too deep or too large, extraction may be necessary.

3. What should I do if my teeth are not aligned? Consult an orthodontist to determine if orthodontic treatment is possible.

4. What department should I go to if I want to get a dental crown? If visiting a hospital, go to the restorative department. If going to a clinic, it may not be necessary to specify a department.

5. What should I do if my gums bleed when I brush my teeth? Taking medication cannot replace periodontal treatment. Check to see if you need scaling and root planing, and consider using mouthwash.

6. What are the different dental restoration methods available for me to choose from if I want to get a dental crown? Options include removable dentures (partial or full dentures), fixed dental crowns (porcelain crowns), and implant restoration (titanium implants placed in the jawbone).

7. What is the difference between fixed dentures and removable dentures, and what are their advantages and disadvantages? Removable dentures are less expensive, cause less damage to neighboring teeth, but have poorer aesthetic and chewing function and can feel uncomfortable. Fixed dental crowns are the opposite.

8. What should I pay attention to when wearing removable dentures? You should pay attention to cleaning, and remove them at night to soak them in water or special cleaning solution.


9. What should I pay attention to when wearing fixed dentures? You should maintain good oral hygiene and avoid using hard foods.

10. Are dentures better than natural teeth? Dentures cannot fully restore the function of natural teeth, so the current treatment principle is to preserve natural teeth as much as possible.

11. I am missing a front tooth, but cannot get a dental crown for 1-2 months. What can I do to make it look better? You can get an immediate denture, which means getting a temporary denture before extracting the tooth, and then getting the final restoration after the wound has healed.

12. I always feel nauseous when wearing dentures. What should I do? Dentures are foreign objects and require about two weeks or a few months (fixed dentures adapt faster than removable dentures) to adapt. You can use a toothbrush to touch the soft palate and other areas that are prone to nausea to adapt as soon as possible.

13. What should I do if my removable dentures always hurt? If there are painful areas within two weeks of wearing dentures, a follow-up visit is needed for adjustments. If old dentures cause pain due to material wear or denture deformation, adjustments or new dentures are needed.

14. What should I do if my removable dentures keep falling off? If dentures are still prone to falling off after mastering the correct use method, it may be due to insufficient buffering or unsatisfactory bite balance, and further adjustments are needed.

15. What should I do if I only have one tooth root left? For tooth roots that are relatively long and have a cross-section located on or within 2mm below the gum line, they can be repaired with post and crown after root canal treatment. If the cross-section is too deep, crown lengthening surgery can be considered for repair. If the tooth root is short and the cross-section is too deep, it should be extracted and then repaired.

16. Are fixed dentures always better than removable ones? Fixed dentures should be used as a support for adjacent natural teeth with good conditions and no serious periodontal disease. Otherwise, it is likely to cause problems with neighboring teeth after restoration and ultimately fail.

17. Is tooth extraction very painful? With the development of new anesthetic drugs and new tooth extraction techniques, tooth extraction can be done without pain.

18. Can tooth extraction cause infectious diseases? All non-disposable instruments are sterilized, so it is impossible to transmit infectious diseases.

19. Can tooth extraction cause sepsis? It is impossible for sepsis to occur during tooth extraction surgery for patients who meet the indications for tooth extraction.

20. What kind of teeth need to be extracted? With the improvement of oral technology, many teeth that needed to be extracted in the past can now be treated, while remaining crown and roots, impacted teeth, retained baby teeth, and supernumerary teeth need to be extracted.

(1) When do wisdom teeth usually grow? Wisdom teeth typically grow around the age of 18.

(2) Do all wisdom teeth need to be extracted? If wisdom teeth have enough space to grow without causing inflammation or damage to neighboring teeth, they do not need to be extracted.

(3) Can I have my crooked wisdom teeth extracted? Crooked wisdom teeth often lead to gum inflammation and decay of neighboring teeth, so they should be extracted. With current technology, almost all types of wisdom teeth can be easily extracted.

(4) What is machine tooth extraction, and what are its benefits? Machine tooth extraction refers to using an implant machine to complete the tooth separation and bone removal steps, which greatly reduces intraoperative pain and surgical time. After the introduction of machine tooth extraction technology, almost no teeth are impossible to extract.

(5) What should I do if my face swells after tooth extraction? Apply cold compresses for 24 hours, and switch to hot compresses after 48 hours. Take some anti-inflammatory drugs or receive intravenous therapy.

(6) How long will I experience pain after tooth extraction? Generally, there will be some pain within 24 hours, and some discomfort may persist afterwards.

(7) What should I pay attention to after tooth extraction? The most important thing to note is that you cannot brush or rinse your mouth within 24 hours, and the cotton roll used to stop bleeding should be removed after 30 minutes.

(8) Can I eat after tooth extraction? You can eat 3 hours after tooth extraction, and should choose cold and soft foods. It is best to eat some liquid food.

(9) Can I eat before tooth extraction? You should eat before tooth extraction, and make sure to eat well and fully.

What is temporomandibular joint disease? The temporomandibular joint is composed of the mandibular fossa of the temporal bone, the condylar process of the mandible, the articular disc between the two, the joint capsule surrounding the joint, and the ligaments. The most common diseases are as follows:

(1) Temporomandibular joint dysfunction syndrome; (2) Temporomandibular joint ankylosis; (3) Temporomandibular joint dislocation.

① What are the manifestations of temporomandibular joint disease? Bilateral temporomandibular joint pain, joint clicking or popping, and limited jaw movement.

② How is temporomandibular joint disease treated? Treatment includes physical therapy, splinting, occlusal adjustment, arthrocentesis, and surgery, but conservative treatment should be attempted first.

③ What is physical therapy? Physical therapy is a treatment method that uses techniques such as far-infrared radiation, shortwave diathermy, and iontophoresis to promote the resolution of local tissue inflammation.

22. What is trigeminal neuralgia? It is an unexplained radiating, paroxysmal pain in the distribution area of the trigeminal nerve, characterized by trigger points.

(1) What are the symptoms of trigeminal neuralgia?

1. Paroxysmal severe facial pain on one side;

2. Presence of a "trigger point" that causes the pain;

3. No positive signs on neurological examination;

4. The pain is stereotyped and recurrent, and generally does not resolve spontaneously.

(2) How is trigeminal neuralgia treated? Treatment options include medication, radiofrequency thermocoagulation, and surgical intervention.

23. What should be done if a child's baby teeth do not fall out? It is recommended to promptly remove retained baby teeth to prevent dental malformation.

24. Can I have my teeth extracted if I have hypertension and coronary heart disease?

You can have your teeth extracted under electrocardiogram monitoring, which means the tooth extraction surgery is performed under the supervision of a cardiologist with non-invasive blood pressure monitoring and dynamic electrocardiogram monitoring to promptly detect and treat any problems, avoiding serious cardiovascular accidents. However, our clinic does not have the necessary equipment, so we recommend going to a specialized hospital.

25. Can I have my teeth extracted if I have diabetes?

Your fasting blood sugar level should be controlled below 8.89mmol/l before considering tooth extraction surgery.

26. Is surgery necessary for a short lingual frenulum? When is the best time to perform the surgery?

Not all cases require surgery. Surgery is advisable around the age of 3 years old.

27. What is the significance of a surgical consent form? Is it a means for doctors to absolve themselves of responsibility?

The surgical consent form is a means for doctors to fulfill their obligation to inform patients of the risks and potential complications of the procedure. However, it does not absolve doctors of responsibility in the event of complications. It only demonstrates that the doctor has fulfilled their duty.

28. What is the suitable age for correcting teeth?

The best age for correcting teeth is 12 years old.

29. Is there an age limit for orthodontic treatment?

If the periodontal health is good, there is no age limit for orthodontic treatment. Adults and elderly people can both receive it.

30. How long does orthodontic treatment take and how much does it cost?

Generally, it takes 18-24 months, and the cost is approximately 8000 yuan, depending on the specific situation.

31. Do all orthodontic treatments require tooth extraction?

Not necessarily, but tooth extraction is generally required in most cases.

32. What kind of tooth decay requires root canal treatment?

Root canal treatment is generally needed for teeth that have spontaneous pain symptoms.

33. How long does root canal treatment take?

If root canal treatment is needed, at least two appointments are required, typically 3-4 visits over a period of 3-4 weeks.

34. What are the types of root canal treatment, and what are their advantages?

The main types of root canal treatment are gutta-percha filling, dry necrosis, and root filling. The first two types are no longer commonly used due to a high risk of recurrence and the need for further treatment. Nowadays, root canal treatment is generally performed using the root filling method.

35. Why is root canal treatment recommended?

Root canal treatment is the internationally recognized standard treatment for infected teeth. While other methods, such as dry necrosis, are used in some areas, root canal treatment is more effective and has a higher success rate. Additionally, for teeth that may require post and core and crown, root canal treatment is the only option.

36. Which teeth should receive full crown restoration after treatment?

For teeth that have undergone root canal treatment, full crown restoration is usually recommended to prevent crown fracture and treatment failure.

37. Does teeth cleaning damage teeth? As long as the cleaning method is reasonable and standard, it generally does not cause any damage and is an important method for dental health. It can help prevent the occurrence of gingivitis and periodontitis.

38. How often should I get my teeth cleaned? You should have a dental check-up every 6-12 months, and if necessary, get your teeth cleaned. However, if you maintain good oral hygiene (don't smoke or drink tea), you generally only need to get your teeth cleaned once a year. Smokers and tea drinkers should get their teeth cleaned every six months.

39. How should I choose a toothbrush? You should choose a toothbrush with soft bristles and a small, short brush head.

40. What kind of toothpaste should I use? You should use toothpaste that contains fluoride, but children should use special toothpaste designed for them.

41. How many times a day should I brush my teeth? Three times a day, with the most important time being before bedtime or after the last meal, because the self-cleaning function of the teeth weakens at night.

42. After cleaning my teeth, why do they feel loose? Sometimes, this is due to severe periodontitis where large chunks of dental calculus hold the teeth in place. After removing the calculus, the teeth may feel loose. However, if left untreated, the teeth may eventually need to be extracted due to advanced periodontitis.

43. Why do my teeth hurt when exposed to hot and cold temperatures after cleaning? This is because the gum swelling, which was protecting the tooth root, has subsided after treatment, exposing the root. It's similar to how a person who suddenly takes off their winter coat will be sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. The sensitivity typically lasts for one to two weeks and will eventually subside.

44. What is periodontal scaling and root planing? It is a treatment method that involves using specialized tools to clean dental calculus from the roots of teeth.

45. Can medication treat periodontitis? Antibiotics can be prescribed for patients with acute inflammation, but they cannot solve the root problem. Eventually, periodontal treatment is necessary.

46. Why don't I feel any symptoms even though my dentist says I have periodontitis? Periodontitis is a chronic inflammation that can be asymptomatic in its early stages. Often, by the time symptoms appear, the treatment window has been missed.

47. What is teeth whitening? Teeth whitening is a process of using strong oxidizing agents to remove pigments from the dental tissue that have caused the teeth to become yellow or gray, with the goal of achieving a brighter appearance (typically achieved through cold light whitening).

48. What types of teeth are suitable for teeth whitening? Teeth that are suitable for teeth whitening are vital teeth with no missing dental tissue and a relatively uniform color.

49. When do children start growing teeth? Children start growing teeth at six months after birth.

50. Which teeth will be replaced? Baby teeth (20 in total) will be replaced.

51. What is pit and fissure sealant? Pit and fissure sealant is a preventive dental treatment that involves filling the deep grooves on newly erupted teeth to prevent decay as they are difficult to clean.

52、Do children need to brush their teeth? Yes, before the teeth emerge, the mother can use gauze dipped in warm salt water and wrap it around her index finger to wipe the child's gums after meals. After the first tooth emerges, the child should be helped to brush their teeth. From two or three years old, gradually train the child to brush their own teeth, but without toothpaste to prevent swallowing. Toothpaste can be used when the child is a bit older.

53、What is the difference between dental treatment for children and adults? Due to differences in anatomy and the fact that primary teeth are replaced, there are significant differences between treatment for children and adults.
