Dentistry 101: All You Need to Know About Dentistry
The world of dentistry is, in my opinion, is a world of love and hate limbo. While you may be confused with what I mean, such confusion is okay because you probably heard that one first from me. I have, however, reasons to say that it is a limbo, and one of those reasons is the fact that dentistry is not a world that everybody want to explore. If you want to serve the humankind, why not be a fully-fledged doctor instead of becoming someone who can only fill dental cavities? Everybody wants to be a doctor, and those who do not have the sufficient mental capability are often put to the sideline that is the dental world.
It is a notion that will lead this nation to a ruin if kept afloat, and this article here plans on telling you a bit about the dental world so that people will not take it for granted. Although the dental world is filled with words that commoners will never comprehend, I will try to avoid using those words because I do not want to give this article an ‘exclusive’ feeling to it. I will try my best to explain about the facts surrounding dental world and I do hope this information can be useful at the very least to you readers.
So without further ado, let us begin with the explanations:
The world of dentistry is insured as well
There are many insurances out there in the world, but not many knows that there is an insurance for dental health and hygiene. Many workplaces provide this kind of insurance to its employees, so what does that mean?
It means that dental health has a profound impact on the economy of the nation. Dental problems will cause uncomfortable feeling for those with them, and those uncomfortable feeling will cause a reduction in efficiency. If the efficiency of a workplace is reduced, companies will not be able to make profit and in turn they will not be able to support the nation’s economy. The nation will crumble down thanks to teeth cavities, and not long after the world’s economy will soon follow. The world will be ruined because of a hole in a tooth, and nothing can be even more embarrassing than that.
While this hyperbole might sound too much for some people, it is basically the sole reason why employers need to give dental insurance to their employees. Happy people makes money, which is a clear picture of Gramsci’s theory of hegemony (I never said I will avoid economics mumbo jumbo did I not?).
There are many types of dental insurance, and available for the picking is dental insurance that covers implants. While I might say that this dental insurance is available for the picking, I have to say that this type of insurance is pretty hard to find. This type of insurance is like a one-horned rhinoceros. They are available out there, but finding them anywhere on the world is pretty hard.
Dental health services are not always about filling cavities
Or plucking a rotten tooth out. There are lots of dental services types, and listing all of them in this article will take precious space that I would rather use to fill you readers in with more important information. Instead, I shall list two of the greatest services that the dental world can provide: implants and dental surgery.
While implants might not be needed for many, the availability of dental implant is a godsend for people who needed them. Some of you may have all of your teeth, but people in certain line of profession (like boxers, wrestlers, or martial artists) will need them if they want to have their smiles intact. Those professions require a degree of physical contact, and the physical will often get so heated that their head got the physical treatment as well. A few teeth here and there might accidentally be plucked out, and that is what implants are for. Implants give those people the ability to smile in front of the camera even after their real teeth got knocked off. There are many types of dental implants to talk about with some of them requiring two surgeries to install. This is where the next most important services of the dental world comes.
Dental surgery is a very underrated procedure that many people require. Without dental surgery, there will never be implants and there will never be a procedure called wisdom teeth removal. If you are reading this in your mid 20’s, you must have known about this painful procedure. If you have not heard and have not felt the impact of this procedure, then you are a lucky lad or lass.
Being a dentist is not the only job available in the dental world
Aside from being a dentist, the dental world have dental lab technician jobs available as well. The difference between the two is night and day, as well. While dentist is the person who make ‘physical contact’ with the patients (physical as in the one doing the surgery and the one who touched the oral cavity of the patients), a dental lab technician is the one who is doing the ‘behind-the-curtain’ jobs such as creating implants and other whatnots. The former will rarely meet the patients.
Dental clinics can be found all around the states
This makes finding a job as a dentist an easy thing to do. Because dental health is very important, many states will have at least more than one dental clinics available. Many of these dental clinics are credible and will have lots of patients waiting to get their teeth treated. One of the popular clinic, Day and Night Dental, can be found in the state of North Carolina.
Dental and the military is connected in a way
There is this thing called Tricare reserve select dental and it works like an extension to uniformed service members. It is basically a dental health care plan for people in military service for their country, and it extends to the family members of said military people as well. As a country that is dedicated in keeping its service member healthy and hale, this should not come as a surprise.
