Chief complaint of the patient at the first time visit was uncomfortable feeling of lower right tooth.
This was due to the⑧765④③bridge(lower right side)which was supported by this tooth.
The reason for her uncomfortableness was perhaps the root fracture of lower right first premolar caused by excessive occlusal force.
We thought that the treatment options that would the patients may choose implants or dentures.
In spite of our advice, hope of the patient was not in it.
I told the patient that way, but the patient did not consent.
The patient seemed to believe that there may be other alternatives in the treatment of method.
The patient without any active treatment, and wished to mount an incompatible old prosthesis.
But a few days later, the patient came to our office again to hope comrehensive teeth treatment.
she seemed to believe the advice of person who introduced her to our office.
The cause of this patient’s problem was the irregularity of teeth alignment and the bite.Especially chewing of a lot of Asians is grinding type chewing cycle.
If they have the problems of anterior teeth guidance, they will have always these kinds of problems.
We have seen many such examples. So it becomes always so.
They will wander into a spiral when the problems are not resolved.
Whether or not the decision to treat the alignment of teeth is the important select in defense for not fall into nagetive spiral of oral health.
If there are’nt appropriate guidance of anterior tooth, so molar tooth will have so much attrition.
Teeth contact caries, caries progression caused by microcrack, inlay detachment with second caries and so on, these will occer so often.
After all, they have to have pulpectomy, root canal retreatment, and will have root fracture.
In Japan, thanks to the system of the public health insurance for the whole nation, all of us can have tooth treatment.
On the other hand, we would consider any time at ease, so cheap.
Then the preventive concept of Japanese nation are so poor that Japanese medical expenses have continued to increase.
Therefore in spite of treatment unit price is cheap,for example, from a one-20th to a one-30th compare to the treatment fee of other OECD contries, total dental cost of nation has become surprisingly equal to the countries.
Many Japanese people having makeshift treatment again and again, then the teeth are broken again and again.
Most people can’t go out from negative spiral of missing teeth, because treatment remained the cause is not solving teeth problems.
