Inside the Dental Office - Tools of the Trade

The dental office can be a mysterious place for the uninitiated. Even for those who have been going to regular appointments their entire lives, it might be difficult to name or pick out more than a couple of the common instruments. Of course, the most important tool in the hands of any competent dentist comes in the form of their own talent and experience. This is why the average person can typically not purchase dental equipment over the counter. While the tools have specific purposes, they are best left to the professionals. Here are some of the tools of the trade and how a dentist uses them to care for your teeth. The Mirror There is perhaps no more important tool in a dental office than the mirror. Without it, a dentist would have a very difficult time seeing behind teeth and getting a good look at exactly what is going on inside a patient's mouth. If you've ever tried to examine your teeth in the mirror, you know how frustrating it can be. You can get a good look at your front teeth, and even a few of those closer to the back. But when it comes to looking around at the other side or examining those in the back of your mouth, you're going to be out of luck. In combination with some bright lights, the dentist can use small mirrors to get a very close look at your teeth and gums, helping them to diagnose problems. The Scraper No dental office is complete without several forms of this important tool. Very sharp and extremely hard, the scraper is used to scrape away plaque from the teeth before it can harden to the point where nothing can get rid of it. The dentist will usually bring it out during an examination, simultaneously getting rid of some of that build up while also watching out for more serious problems like gum disease and cavity formation. It is this scraper that usually causes the gums to bleed during an appointment, but when used carefully on healthy gums, bleeding should be kept to a minimum. The Drill Teeth are made from the hardest material the human body can form-enamel. That means a special tool is needed to break through this enamel without smashing the tooth altogether. The drill serves that purpose. Even people who don't have an inherent fear of the dentist tend to get a shiver up their spine when they think of the sound that drill makes, but without it , many advanced surgical procedures would be impossible.
