The truth behind the common misconceptions about oral care and dental practice part 1

With all the countless wrong information you can find on the internet about dental care and dental career, plus the old folks' tales passed on from one generation to the next, it can be really easy to believe and get trapped in the world of delusion.

Before you follow any of the advice you read from posts written by people who know less about dentistry, make sure to confirm them with a dental professional first. Today we are going to debunk some of the common misconceptions about dental care and dental career.

Using ergonomically designed dental tools is just an overstatement

Despite the widespread awareness of the importance of ergonomics in dentistry, many dentists and dental hygienists still believe that using ergonomically designed dental tools and instruments like dental loupes is just an overstatement and just an expensive addition to their investment. They believe that any dental loupes will do for as long as they fit the operator's optical magnification needs.

The fact is, using the non-ergonomically designed and the wrong type of dental optical loupes can be considered as working without magnification optical aid at all. Schultz loupes truly offer many benefits both to the dental professional and to the patients. However, you can only be able to enjoy these benefits if the loupes you have purchased truly fit you based on the factors that you need to consider when picking a loupe like magnification power, angle of declination, working distance, interpupillary distance, resolution, field of view, depth of field, style, design, frame type, and weight, among others.

Ergonomically designed dental tools and instruments are meticulously engineered considering the comfort and efficiency of the operator. They allow the dental professional to be more effective at work while still enjoying a pain-free practice.

The dentists will likely scold you about your home oral care

One of the many reasons why many people refuse to see a dentist is because they are afraid that their dentist might scold them because of their bad oral hygiene at home like not brushing the teeth regularly, not doing flossing, and consuming sugary foods and beverages.

As a dental professional, it is your duty to inform your patients and people in general about the importance of home oral hygiene.

You don't have to go to a dentist on a regular basis

With the availability of different do-it-yourself oral hygiene methods, many people think that visiting a dentist is not at all necessary unless badly needed. They believe that frequent brushing of teeth, flossing, gargling with mouthwash, and consuming foods and beverages with less sugar content are enough to keep their teeth healthy.

Teeth Care

The truth is, although these ways can help decreases the need for you to frequently visit a dental clinic, you still have to see a dentist or dental hygienist and have your teeth checked at least twice a year. In fact, you might be surprised to know that even dentists see another dentist to ensure that they are free from any oral diseases.
