“I am obsessed by good service. I drive my wife and family mad when we eat out because if we haven’t had good service in a pub or restaurant, I won’t stay to have pudding! We leave after the main course. I admit that this is shooting myself in the foot as I love pudding, but there is a principle involved here…

The Changing Face of Dentistry

22 February 2018 Categories: Dentistry Tagged with: , ,

 By Dr. Antony Bellaries

This time of year often provides a period of reflection and an optimistic look to the future. This year it is the 70th anniversary of the inception of the National Health Service, formed as part of Clement Attlee’s (then Labour Prime Minister) “cradle to grave” welfare state reform policy in the aftermath of the Second World War. The NHS was the first universal health care system established anywhere in the world. Amongst other services, it provided greater access to dental care, in an otherwise dentally neglected population.

In the mid half of the twentieth century, dental disease was rife. The vast majority of dental treatment provided was tooth extractions and the provision of dentures. So what’s changed? A huge amount! Below I’ve listed my top four significant changes to happen to dentistry over the last seventy years:

NOT ALL DENTURES ARE THE SAME!

In March 2017, I travelled to Japan to complete a course on the revolutionary new suction denture technique taught by Dr Jiro Abe. As a result, I am now qualified to provide Suction Effective Mandibular Complete Dentures (SEMCD) – the very latest in suction effective dentures.

One of the most difficult things to achieve in dentistry is suction and stability on a full lower denture. This new technique, which eliminates the problem of the lower denture lifting by creating effective suction, is rapidly becoming popular worldwide. After achieving great results on my own patients, I can understand why this new suction denture technique offers such a huge advantage over a conventional full lower denture system.

What is ‘Reconstructive Dentistry’?

Reconstructive Dentistry is the term used for the treatment of patients who have experienced advanced dental disease.

Symptoms range from loose, missing or decayed teeth, increasing tooth spacing (especially in the front of the mouth), to very worn teeth and the inability to chew food properly. Reconstructive Dentistry is the treatment used to return the patient back to dental heath and restore tooth function and aesthetics.

Due to the complexity of reconstructive dentistry, it normally involves what is called a “multidisciplinary approach”. This means that a team of highly skilled clinicians, who work exclusively within their chosen field of practice, are brought together to provide treatment and ultimately the best clinical result for the patient.
