Does tooth extraction affect eye sight?
It is not reasonable to worry like that. Tooth extraction has no effect on eyesight. Sometimes, eyes swell & hurt when people suffer toothache. That makes people feel like that tooth &eyes are tightly related &eyes will feel terrible when something happen to tooth .in fact it is not. Only in one situation, if there is inflammation at tooth nerve, it may cause inflammation on eye nerves that will cause problem. However, if it is the normal physical tooth, extraction in the standard condition, it does not have side effects. At the same time, infection could occur after the tooth extraction. An infection may be caused by bacteria or trapped food particles getting in the hole (wound) left by the extraction. Signs of an infection include fever, increased pain in the mouth or jaw, increased swelling around the extraction site or draining or bleeding from the extraction site. Extract tooth does not affect eyesight in any way. All you have to do is have professional doctor to do that.
Is root canal treatment painful?
Root canals have reputation of being painful and bad. But this is just a misconception. Root canal treatment is a painless procedure and is done to eliminate pain which is present due to infection in tooth. When pulp is infected or non-vital, then RCT is done. When the dentist numbs the area, they will discover that the Local Anaesthesia was not that painful. After the area is numb, patient will feel no pain during Root Canal Treatment procedure. In case of infected and painful tooth, antibiotics can also be prescribed for 3-5 days to reduce the infection in tooth and surrounding tissues. If patient feels pain during the Root Canal Procedure, then he should tell his dentist or endodontist about this. Tooth may not have been anaesthetized adequately and Local Anaesthesia is then given again.
Does ultrasonic scaling of teeth can cause mobility?
Age old, wrong notation about the scaling of teeth are absolutely baseless, that is:
1) Scaling causes weakening and mobility of teeth.
2) Gaps are increased than before.
3) Teeth become sensitive.
Scientific reasoning against these myths.
1) Maybe the deposits are removed too late at a stage, when most of the bone is lost and teeth are temporarily cemented with hard calculus, tooth may move after scaling. Hence, scaling does not make teeth loose, they have already become loose due to calculus. Only the removal of patch of calculus has set in the mobility. This happens at a very late stage/ age.
2) In some cases, there are gaps between teeth which gets covered by tooth coloured tartar. On removal of this tartar, the patient feels the gaps has occurred due to cleaning of teeth, which is wrong.
3) As the tartar is removed, the concealed part of the teeth is exposed to the oral environment. Thereby causing mild to moderate sensitivity to the teeth, which is transient. The sensitivity vanishes in a day or two and most of the patients do not even experience this sensitivity.
Rest assured scaling will not weaken your teeth rather it will make them stronger.
