My background and why I am doing this
I was a dentist in general practice for 10 years in Britain. This included working with the NHS, Private practice, and also Community dentistry in Western Australia.
I had to be medically retired from clinical practice. I was a patient for many years. This experience gave me a patients perspective on health care. So I want to bring REAL positive dental change for us as PATIENTS.
WHO CARES ABOUT DENTAL PREVENTION? WHY BOTHER…?
A. TO AVOID THE DISEASE OF TOOTH DECAY & GUM DISEASE
Gum disease develops, starting with bleeding gums, bad breath, loose teeth, receding gums, and eventually tooth loss.
Tooth decay develops, starting with ugly cavities in teeth that are sharply sensitive to hot and cold, painful toothaches, and finally a dental abscess.
This can all have a severe impact on your health, cause pain and emotional distress.
This can affect your appearance, ability to chew and enjoy food, cause anxiety and harm your self esteem.
This can also cause difficulties with intimate and social relationships.
B. TO AVOID TREATMENT OF TOOTH DECAY
Treatment is necessary but often unpleasant, & expensive…
Treatment starts with DRILLING & FILLINGS OF YOUR TEETH.
And even ROOT CANAL TREATMENT OF YOUR TEETH
With more tooth decay and gum disease treatment leads to EXTRACTION OF YOUR TEETH AND HAVING TO WEAR A DENTURE
WHY IS THERE A LACK OF GOOD PREVENTION?
- We do not have national health education programme so the public is confused
How hard should I brush? Do I need to floss?
One advert promotes mouthwash for gum disease, and another promotes toothpaste. Which is right?
- Treatment focused care at the dentist instead of effective prevention
You have tooth decay so you have fillings. One year later the dentist finds more tooth decay and you need more fillings.
This perpetuates a system of ‘drilling and filling’ which is not nice for the patient, and very dissatisfying for the dentist.
WHAT SHOULD HAPPEN
People RIGHT NOW should know how to look after their mouth.
Why is good prevention available to the privileged few and not everyone?
Value for money is not more fillings at a low price.
Dental Care should be built around supporting you to prevent disease.
THE dental profession have the know how, and ABILITY to look their OWN MOUTH. Why can’t DENTISTS share this information with the public?
The idea here is to comprehensively (and not in patches) educate the public.
