A long time back, if people suffered toothaches or need urgent extraction, it often takes a couple of subsequent visits to the dentist to relieve them of their suffering. What also makes the experience more gruesome was that there were no such things as anesthesia a long time back. Patients have no choice but to bear with the painful experience of having teeth extracted from their mouth using a pair of pliers and or a tool which can better do the job. And more often than not, an appointment with a dentist is a bloody one. Plus, people do not have any means of getting any dental implants or dentures so once they grow old and they no longer have any teeth, they are to bear with it.
That is why people today are luckier as compared to those who lived many years ago. Getting a decaying tooth extracted need not require the patient to have more than one appointment with their dentist. At the same time, they can be injected with anesthesia for a painless extraction experience. Furthermore, there are a number of dental cosmetic procedures that patients can take advantage of such as getting dental implants, implant-supported bridges, dentures, bone grafts and many more. And what makes these procedures great is that they can be done in just a single appointment. It is only a matter of time before other dental procedures like putting braces in a person’s mouth would transition to just a day session without the need to continuously readjust it which takes years.
