Toothache Diagnosis by the Dental Assistant

A dental assistant often helps patients diagnose their toothaches. The assistant should encourage patients to ask how to better treat or even spot symptoms of a toothache to help maintain good health of their teeth. Various dental assisting tasks can be done every day to help keep patient’s teeth protected.

Toothache

Most people are not even aware of how a toothache can be an indicator of something major wrong with their dental hygiene habits. Here are a few things that the dental assistant can encourage patients to look out for.

Are the patient’s teeth sensitive to cold or hot food?

Dental Assistants who ask about this are trying to identify if the pain comes or goes and what level of pain the patient is dealing with. Pain that usually comes and goes is a normal reaction to cold or hot foods. On the other hand if the pain is extreme the nerves that are under the teeth can cause pain when biting into or chewing food.

A dental assistant will often need to take an x-ray and might even do percussion test to see how bad your toothache might be. They will also be checking the patient’s mouth for other things like cavities, abscesses or even other problems.

A percussion test by the dental assistant involves tapping on the teeth to see what ones are fragile and also what teeth have hollow insides. The dental assistant can then give the results to the dentist and the best care will be planned for the toothache.

The dental assistant may find problems that could be causing the toothache that are also causing other pains in the patient’s head, neck and ear regions. These areas can be affected by any dental troubles so it is best for the dental assistant to inquire about these problems that can also help with diagnoses.

Are you ready to become a dental assistant? You owe it to yourself to get the career you deserve. Hurry now before it’s to late. Email or call (760) 691-1933 today!

Sincerely,
Dr. John Coleman

Dental Assistant Job Close to Home

Dental Assistant JobThe thing I loved and enjoy the most was the labs and internship it gave me the opportunity to find a dental assistant job close to home! I recommend and encourage anyone who wants to be a dental assistant to take the program – it is a great experience.

Taking my dental class through this school was great. The training was really good and there was a lot of hands on, rather than just reading from a book. The staff is wonderful! They helped with everything I needed to know and were very patient. Taking this program was definitely worth every penny.

Cosmetic Dentistry and Dental Assisting

When you hear the term dental assisting and cosmetic dentistry, what’s the first idea that pops up in your mind? Perhaps you’re thinking about teeth whitening or other popular treatments undergone by celebrities to achieve perfect, shiny white teeth.

Cosmetic Dentistry

To a certain extent, that is true. But on a larger scale, cosmetic dentistry goes beyond aesthetics, but what is cosmetic dentistry?

Cosmetic dentistry refers to the procedures that dental assistants and dentists use to improve the smiles of their patients. While many of these are cosmetic in nature, quite a few of these are restorative and can solve numerous oral problems.

Here’s a brief glimpse of a few cosmetic dentistry services.

Bleaching or Teeth Whitening

One of the most common cosmetic dentistry services that dental assistants help with is teeth whitening. To determine the right amount of whitening solution for patients, a dental assistant needs to create a custom mouthpiece. Teeth whitening may be performed at the dental office or at home under the supervision of the dental office. Whitening can be used to eliminate stains caused by food and drinks, medications, and cigarettes, or to make the teeth whiter by a shade.

Bonding

A dental assistant can use bonding, under the supervision of the dentist, to change the color of the teeth or even close gaps. But compared to other restorative treatments, bonding can sometimes be chipped or stained. For chipped or decayed teeth, composite resins may be used. Small cavities can also be filled by bonding.

Crowns

Crowns or caps are used to cover a tooth in order to restore its appearance and shape. Of all the types of cosmetic restorations, crowns last the longest. However, caps are also among the most expensive and most time-consuming service that a dental assistant will help with.

Veneers

Veneers may be used to change the color or shape of the teeth or for the treatment of misshapen, chipped, crooked, or unevenly shaped teeth.Veneers may be made out of either plastic or porcelain and are placed over the front teeth.  These are usually recommended as an alternative to crowns.

Contouring and Reshaping

In the case of crooked, chipped or irregularly shaped teeth, the dental assistant may recommend tooth reshaping and contouring. The procedure performed in the dental office is used to change the position, length and shape of teeth and is sometimes used to correct minor bite problems. It may also be used in conjunction with tooth reshaping.

When a patients are interested in a particular treatment, the dental assistant should inform them of what changes to expect, how the procedure is done, and what maintenance is required. In order to determine which procedures are right for the patient, the dental assistant should take into account the condition of the teeth as well as the patient’s goals.

Are you ready to become a dental assistant? You owe it to yourself to get the training you deserve! Don’t wait… Email or call (760) 691-1933 today!

Dr. John Coleman
