Dentist’s Drill | Article about Dentist’s Drill by The Free Dictionary

Dentist’s Drill

 

a medical apparatus by means of which a cutting instrument is made to rotate (the drill is a shaft with a steel, diamond, or carborundum bit attached to it, or a carborundum stone, disc, etc.) and which is used for the preparation of the hard tissues of the tooth. There are pedal-operated (seldom used), electrical, and turbine dentist’s drills. In an electrical dentist’s drill, an electric motor serves as the motive power for the drill, which is affixed to the tip of the apparatus. In a turbine dentist’s drill, the cutting instrument is set in motion by a turbine located in the tip; a stream of compressed air is forced onto the turbine (by means of a compressor) at a pressure of 0.25–0.35 meganewtons /m2 (2.5–3.5 kg/cm2). The frequency of rotation of an electric dentist’s drill is 30,000

How to Handle a Dental Emergency: Dentists’ Tips

You may consider your teeth to be a low priority compared to the rest of your body. Aside from brushing and the occasional flossing, you probably neglect them until you experience dental problems like pain, swelling, or bleeding. Sometimes this can manifest into a dental emergency. But should you go to the hospital or your dentist?

The American Dental Association (ADA) says that emergency room (ER) visits for dental problems have consistently been on the rise since 2000, jumping from 1.1 million to roughly 2.1 million a year. Of those visits, 1.65 million could have been referred to a dental practice instead, saving the healthcare system $1.7 billion, not to mention savings for the consumer, too. “Most ERs do not have dentists available,” says Mary Hayes, DDS, an ADA spokesperson based in Chicago. “Physicians have limited training when it comes to mouth issues, so your dentist is usually the best

Home remedies for toothaches recommended by emergency dentists

There’s nothing worse than experiencing an emergency toothache – especially when your dentist isn’t available to call or visit for help.

But don’t fret!

Our Salt Lake City dentists are experts in emergency dental care and pain management. To help you relieve your pain, they have put together a list of the best home remedies to relieve toothaches before visiting an emergency dentist. This list includes:

This list should help tide you over until you can visit your preferred dentist for a proper diagnosis and treatment.

Because you must remember: Toothaches are a sign something is wrong – even when the pain goes away. Delaying or avoiding visiting your dentist can end up causing you more pain, more expenses, and more time-intensive treatments to solve your problem than merely having it taken care of at the first sign.

For example, listen to this true story about a home remedy gone

Dentist Well-Being | Assisting Dentists and their Families with Personal Problems


Support for Dentists

The Dentist Well-Being Committee is a standing committee of the Maryland State Dental Association. The Committee assists dentists and their families who may be experiencing personal problems. The Committee has helped many dentists over the years with problems such as stress, drug dependence, alcoholism, depression, medical problems, infectious diseases, neurological disorders and other illnesses that cause impairment.

This short video gives you an overview of the Dentist Well-Being Committee and how it helps dentists and their families with personal problems. See dentist resources for more videos.

Confidentiality

The Committee provides a confidential, non-disciplinary avenue for dentists to seek appropriate help for problems. Referrals are completely confidential. Any dentist who seeks help as a self-referral can be assured that their information will be held in the strictest confidence.
