The human body is a remarkable being. At the mere age of 5 years, the human body contains within it 11 different organ systems, all serving to keep a 60-pound biological entity alive and functioning optimally. Of these systems, there is certain body parts that are often overlooked. These unnoticed parts are the teeth and the jaw. The former is what this discourse will be largely about.
The dental system is often overlooked but is largely the part that we use every day. We eat, drink, talk, and do many other things with our mouths and therefore it must be maintained to be running well and not hindering the body.
Dental care is a vital part of the maintenance of the human body. There are a number of procedures that are dental and are used in maintenance of the human body. These include dental fillings, root canal, bonding, orthodontics, dental crows, dental bridges, Dentures, and many more.
First, there are dental fillings. This is quite a common procedure that takes rough an hour to a couple of hours. The main reason people get dental fillings is because they have some damage to their tooth or teeth. There are many ways structural damage can occur to a person’s tooth or teeth. One way is the regular wear and tear the human teeth go through throughout the day. Another way is if the person sustained an injury to the dental region of the body. The fillings used in this procedure can be made of many things including, gold, silver, porcelain and much more.
The second procedure is known as a root canal. This procedure is considered a major procedure. This is because in this procedure the root chamber of the tooth is breached. The main reason this occurs is because there is infected pulp tissue. Once the infected pulp tissue is removed the tooth becomes hollow. The tooth is then filled with fillings, one which is antibacterial in nature, and then the tooth is capped for added protection.
In essence there are a lot of procedures that occur on the human body. Many of these procedures also includes dental procedures. Dental care is an important aspect of a person’s life. Because the average human uses their mouths on a daily basis, it is important to take care of their mouth, especially their teeth. Oral health is therefore one of the most common.
