Dentist: Closure of practices impacts patients’ oral health

Shaniqua Juliano

JOHNSTON, R.I. (WPRI) ─ A Johnston dentist believes dentistry is an essential business, but argues that it hasn’t been treated as such throughout the coronavirus pandemic.

Rupesh Udeshi, dentist and co-owner of Dental Associates of Rhode Island, said the months his practice was closed had a big impact on the health of many of his patients.

“We’ve had a great backlog and problems that were minor, that have become major. The patient may have just had a cavity or needed a filling, but we haven’t seen them and it’s now more severe and it’s a root canal, and some people who maybe needed a root canal ─ now they need to have the tooth out,” he said.

The World Health Organization recently recommended delaying routine dental care because of the pandemic. But the American Dental Association says they “respectfully yet strongly disagrees.”

“Oral health is integral to overall health. Dentistry

OMS vs. Dentist | Deciding Your Dental Health Professional

Shaniqua Juliano

How is an OMS Different than a Dentist?

For many people, a loose tooth, tooth pain or even general oral discomfort might bring back memories of anxiety-inducing visits to the dentist. It also can be difficult to find time to visit a dentist, let alone schedule time to see a specialist. It is important to know that when unexpected oral health issues arise, you may benefit more from a visit to a nearby oral and maxillofacial surgeon than your general dentist.

When to Visit the Dentist

Regular visits to the dentist are essential for maintaining oral health, and patients should visit a dentist for:

  • Routine teeth cleanings and checkups to assess the risk of tooth decay and gum disease
  • Repairs to damaged teeth (fillings, onlays and crowns)
  • Dentures
  • Root canals

When it comes to more complicated procedures such as removing wisdom teeth and placing dental implants, a patient should visit

The playground padlocks are starting to come off. Now that all 50 states have begun to reopen, children in some areas are once again zipping down slides and swinging from monkey bars after months of waiting.A handful of states, including Massachusetts, Colorado, Ohio and Iowa, announced in June that playgrounds could start reopening, although the decision to open town or city-owned playgrounds is usually made locally. On Thursday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York said during his daily briefing that localities are now permitted to open public pools and playgrounds, and local governments can decide for themselves whether or not to do so.”But they have to use their judgment here,” he said. “Sometimes ‘yes’ is not the right answer. It’s the easy answer.”While this is good news for children, some parents are being a bit more cautious. The coronavirus is still spreading, and a vaccine isn’t

Video consultation is here to stay with the NHS, says Clare Morrison, the national lead on the Near Me project that was originally set up to provide outpatient appointments for those living in the Highlands.

The service has since been rolled out across Scotland due to the coronavirus crisis.

In February there were around 300 appointments a week, while last week there were 15,500, Ms Morrison tells BBC Radio Scotland.

“Before Covid, we were using it to improve access for those rural areas, reducing journeys, and now, of course, it enables physical distancing,” she says.

“It can be used in just about any care setting – primary and secondary care, community services, mental health , physio, speech and language, general practice, cardiology, diabetes – practically any speciality.”

Ms Morrison says 97.8% of patients have said they would use it again, and while there will always be a need for face-to-face

Defining and preserving good health

Shaniqua Juliano

The word health refers to a state of complete emotional and physical well-being. Healthcare exists to help people maintain this optimal state of health.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthcare costs in the United States were $3.5 trillion in 2017.

However, despite this expenditure, people in the U.S. have a lower life expectancy than people in other developed countries. This is due to a variety of factors, including access to healthcare and lifestyle choices.

Good health is central to handling stress and living a longer, more active life. In this article, we explain the meaning of good health, the types of health a person needs to consider, and how to preserve good health.

In 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO) defined health with a phrase that modern authorities still apply.

“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the
