Quack’s Fixed Tooth Damages Adjoining Teeth

In India there are  a lot number of dental quacks too. They cause more damage to their than doing any useful service to the patient. I mean not only they damage a person’s teeth, but they play with his general well-being too by using contaminated instruments, needles, syringes and above all they dont know how to respect normal tissues. They are only expert in one thing –Butchery!

Crude denture fixed by a dental quack

Crude denture fixed by a dental quack

This lady has got her lower front tooth replaced by a dental quack. Just looking at this plate, it appears as if it is a removable plate. No, it is not! The quack has fixed it.

What brings her to me? — her complaint is that both the teeth – one each on either side of the artificial tooth- have become shaky and are painful while chewing. This is a very common complaint with quack’s work. I would say this is a milder version of quack’s handicraft. Otherwise, i have shared quite a few posts earlier too in which i have explained how the gums and adjoining structures are destroyed after a quack gives you a crude form of a fixed denture.

Have you noticed calculus (dental tartar) deposited on the inner side (lingual aspect) of this plate. Yes, it deposits anywhere in the mouth if it is not cleaned on daily basis.

I have removed this crude denture and would attend to first the adjoining teeth which are in shaking condition. The advice about a proper replacement can wait for the time being!
