Cosmetic Dentistry Is Dentists’ Favorite Treatment Option

Dental Implants & Sedation Dentistry Are Also Popular

Dental Survey ResultsIn our most recent survey, we asked dentists about their favorite treatment options. Cosmetic dentistry was the clear winner, pulling in over one-third of the total vote (and one-half of he general dentist vote). Dental implants were the runner-up.

There were distinct differences between general dentists and specialists. While nearly half of general dentists favored cosmetic dentistry, only 16% of specialists did. Among specialists, dental implants were the favorite treatment option.

There were also notable differences between urban and rural dentists. Rural dentists were significantly more likely to vote for cosmetic dentistry as their favorite option. While Invisalign was preferred by one-quarter of urban dentists, no rural dentists reported feeling the same way.

Here are some other treatment options dentists like:

  • “Lasers.” (Maryland dentist)
  • “Periodontal plastic surgery.” (Arizona periodontist)
  • “Amalgam.” (North Carolina dentist)
  • “Conventional orthodontics.” (Michigan dentist)
  • “Third molars.” (New York dentist)
  • “Crowns and bridges.” (Canada dentist)
  • “Reconstructive dentistry.” (Kentucky dentist)
  • “Endodontics.” (Canada dentist)
  • “TMD.” (Michigan dentist)
  • “Smile makeovers.” (Cosmetic dentist)

Sedation Dentistry Gone Wild: Dentist Pulls All Ex’s Teeth

Sedation Dentistry Gone Wild: Dentist Pulls All Ex's TeethBreaking up is hard to do, especially when you’re a dentist from Poland.

A freshly dumped dentist is facing jail time after surgically removing all of her ex-boyfriend’s teeth.

Apparently, dental patient Marek Olszewski stopped by ex-girlfriend Anna Machowiak’s dental practice with a bad toothache just days after breaking up with her for another woman.

Dentist Machowiak agreed to treat Olszewski and that’s when things went haywire for the former couple.

Once the ex was sedated, the dentist suddenly had second thoughts. “I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions,” Anna Machowiak told the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “But when I saw him lying there, I just thought, ‘What a b——d.’”

That’s when she decided to pull out all of his teeth.

Talk about sedation dentistry gone wild!

When Marek Olszewski awoke from his sleep dentistry, dentist Machowiak informed him that there was “complications” and that his face was wrapped to prevent him from opening his mouth.

According to the Daily Mail, Machowiak told her ex-boyfriend that his mouth was numbed and that he wouldn’t be able to feel anything for a while and that the bandage was there to protect the gums, but that he would need to see a specialist.

Once he arrived home and went to examine what was done, he found that all of his teeth had been pulled.

Dentist Mackowiak is under investigation for medical malpractice and abusing the trust of a dental patient. She could face up to three years in prison. I’m sure they could use an experience sedation dentist in prison.

And what is it they say about karma?

Olszewski’s new girlfriend dumped him because he no longer has any teeth.

Under the UK’s dental health plan the poor guy could be looking at years of waiting for dental implants . . . but I’m sure he could start with a nice set of dentures.

Dentists Love Oral Conscious Sedation Dentistry (VIDEO)

When we asked dentists if they offer their patients sedation dentistry, two out of three reported that their dental practices offer oral conscious sedation.

A quarter of dentists don’t feel comfortable offering sedation. And 8% said that they wished they were able to offer OCS, but regulations in their state made it too difficult to implement in their practice.
