非常恭喜今天一位戴了滿長一段時間舌側矯正的美女,終於開心地拆除舌側矯正器了!

舌側矯正是一項需要結合生理學、牙醫學、物理學等科學,更需要結合時尚美學的精緻雕琢牙科手工藝。

黃醫師個人私心很喜歡它的原因,除了上述這些讓她覺得很有挑戰性之外,還有非常吸引她的一項優點就是,舌側矯正治療是非常的環境友善!治療幾年下來,拋棄掉的醫療廢棄物,就是如照片上看到的這樣,不像另外一種隱形牙套,治療結束後,會有好幾袋的隱形牙套需要被拋棄。默默地會替地球小難過…

想了解更多有關隱形校正的方式?歡迎找黃醫師聊聊!https://goo.gl/forms/NVrto83xq8llxCD33

這週續接前兩週講的故事書,你知道以前牙齒痛時,有的人塗蜂蜜,有的人找巫師,有的人讓自己燻黑煙,還有的人抓青蛙…幹嘛呢?

Really a Remedy?

If you lived thousands of years ago and had tooth troubles, who would help you? In ancient Egypt there were doctors; in ancient Greece you could go to a temple and hope to be cured in a dream. In other places, you might ask a traditional healer to east your pain with risky remedies. North African village healers would put a dead mouse in your mouth. In Scotland, they’d tell you to suck a caterpillar. In Asia, you’d swill poisonous mouthwash to kill(imaginary) toothworms. The Aztecs of ancient Central America found biting on a hot chili pepper surprisingly soothing.

Early Tooth Treatments

CRANK, CRANK! Ancient Egyptians drilled holes in jawbones to let pus from rotten teeth and gums drain away. Very risky, very painful.

BUZZ OFF! To treat toothaches, ancient Egyptians rubbed gums with sweet, sticky honey from beeds – gentle, soothing and mildly antiseptic, but rarely a cure.

PINS AND NEEDLES. Chinese healers stuck needles into patients to numb pain from diseased teeth. This is called acupuncture. It may have helped, sometimes.

COUGH!SPLUTTER! To ease tooth troubles, ancients Greeks breathed poisonous smoke from burning leaves. We don’t know how many died from the poison.

SIZZLE, SIZZLE! Greek doctors used red-hot wire to cut away infected gums and diseased flesh in the mouth. Absolutely terrifying!

Toothless = Helpless

We all need our teeth to eat and talk and smile. But what happens when they get damaged, or we lose them? In the past, there was no easy way to repair or replace teeth chipped in accidents, knocked out in battle, or ground down by chewing tough, gritty food. Disease, poor nourishment, and old age made teeth wobble, crack, and crumble and many teeth rotted simply because they were not kept clean. Long ago, life with teeth trouble would be painful, difficult, and probably smelly. You’d be toothless and helpless.

Past Tooth Trouble

HORRIBLE HOLES. Cavities(holes) let bacteria spread deep inside teeth to infect pulp, nerves, and jaws.

YUCKY INFECTIONS. Bacteria living around teeth made people feel sick and made their breath smell disgusting.

HEART TROUBLE. Blood carried bacteria from rotten teeth to the heart, which stopped it from working properly.

GHASTLY GRIN. Black, broken teeth and a gappy smile were not a good look for anyone, even a long time ago.

LOST LOOKS. Without teeth, people’s faces changed shape. They had hollow cheeks and shrunken gums.

MOUTH DISEASE. Broken, dirty teeth hurt the inside of the mouth and caused nasty ulcers and boils.

FOOD FAILURE. With no teeth for chewing, people could eat only soft mushy foods. They went hungry!

SPEECHLESS. It was hard to speak clearly without teeth and just as difficult for listeners to understand!

WHY DOES A TOOTHACHE HURT SO MUCH?When teeth are damaged, sensitive nerves deep inside them are exposed. They carry messages about heat, cold and pain directly to the brain.

TOP TIP:

Do you love music? Then love your teeth, too! If you sing, or play woodwind or brass, damaged teeth could spoil the sound you make.

Terrific Teeth

Yes, we’ve all got teeth, but why? What are teeth for? First, and most importantly, we need teeth for eating. They are the world’s first, and best, food processors. Like machinery in our mouths, teeth chop and grind, crunch and crush, chomp. chew and gnaw all the food we eat. They then mixed the food with saliva(spit), so it slides down easily down easily into your stomachs. Without teeth, we’d find it diffcult to eat-and hard to stay alive. We also need teeth for talking. They help our lips and tongues make all kinds of different sounds. Just look at yourself in a mirror, say a few words, and watch those teeth move!

HOW MANY teeth do you have? It depends on how old you are. Babies are born without teeth, then 20 milk(first) teeth push through their gums. These fall out when children reach 6 to 12 years of age, and 32 adult teeth grow in their place, ready to last a lifetime!

ADULT HUMAN TEETH grow in four different shapes and sizes:

8 incisors: Flat, with sharp edges for cutting and nibbling.

4 canines: Fang-shaped and pointed, for stabbing and gripping.

8 premolars: With rounded points, good for chewing and crunching.

8 molars: Big and flat, used for grinding.

4 third molars or wisdom teeth: A spare set of molars, right at the back of the mouth, that appear much later than the rest of the teeth.

CHEWING GETS our digestive system going. When our teeth crush food, saliva starts to break it do so our bodies can use the nourishment it contains. Our stomachs and intestines digest the food even more. Then our blood carries nourishment from the digested food to every part of our body, and we stay strong and healthy.

Tooth Types

Different animals have different types of teeth, tailored to the type of food that animal eats:

NIBBLING. Rats and mice have huge incisor teeth, great for gnawing and nibbling. Their incisors keep on growing all the time as the hard food wears them away.

BITING. Dogs and wolves have big canine teeth for grabbing and snatching their prey. Once they bite, they don’t let go!

TEARING. Lions, tigers and other cats have sharp curved carnassial teeth that cut flesh like knives or scissors.

GRINDING. Animals that eat plants, such as cows and horses, have huge molar teeth to crush and grind their food.

You Can Do It!

Use your teethe to communicate – by flashing a smile! Smiling is a sign of peace, happiness, and friendship all around the world.

男朋友黏矯正器時,可愛的妹妹不像一般陪診家屬,坐在一旁翹腳滑手機,而是站在一旁,很認真仔細地看黃醫師做的每個步驟,邊看也會稍微幫黃醫師跟男友解釋,現在黃醫師做這個步驟是在做什麼,同時回想自己以前原來是這樣過來的。
黃醫師在旁,偷偷os: 來人啊!快給我一副墨鏡🕶️!看他們甜蜜可愛的模樣,感覺診間都充滿了粉紅色泡泡呀!💕
診療結束後,可愛妹妹拿了她自己很喜歡的法國海鹽艾許奶油可頌送給黃醫師。黃醫師超感動的!

懷孕的婦女要怎麼照顧牙齒呢?

標準

文字摘錄自:社團法人新北市牙醫師公會

懷孕期間,要如何照顧牙齒呢?孕婦懷孕時可能因為胃口改變再加上孕吐,加上如果一直吃個不停,而讓口腔長期處在酸性環境中,積累的細菌叢容易造成蛀牙。

除此之外,因為荷爾蒙的改變而引起牙齦發炎,使牙肉紅腫、出血,造成牙周問題。牙周病如果沒有接受治療,就容易在懷孕期間惡化。
