Elena Yurievna came to us in the summer of 2021 with complaints of dark spots and with a huge childhood fear of dentists. Today is March, 19 of 2022 and we have completed the entire therapeutic and surgical parts. The agreement was as follows: to start treating the anterior teeth under anesthesia, and to carry out the rest of the treatment in medical sleep only, no other way. But in the end, by making small steps, we cured all the teeth under local anesthesia without any pain. Has the patient stopped being afraid of dentists? No, she has not! The fear that sits so deeply does not go right away, but we managed to relax the patient to the largest extent, to make her trust the specialists and to get the excellent result. This is a great work of the patient, her family and the entire “The Polar Bear Dental Clinic” team.

Course of treatment

In this article I will show how we made the work done.

During the first examination, we immediately determined that we needed an orthodontist to correct the bite, professional hygiene, full mouth rebridgement, and surgical interference to remove the eighth teeth.

Situation before treatment. We see the pathology of the bite
Red circles show caries
Problem areas are marked on the OPTG: caries and caries-relapse

In total, we cured 8 teeth, now I will show some of them.

We did not have time to save one tooth from pulp removal, caries hit it too deep.

A photograph of the tooth before treatment. The red contour is caries, the green one is the pulp (the nerve of the tooth).
We went through the root canal, processed it, and here is the result of the filling
The tooth was restored with a direct restoration before orthodontics
We removed hidden caries on the superior jaw: situation before treatment
We got to the hidden caries
We removed caries and restored the tooth

The last case of teeth, which at the beginning the patient was dead against treating. But during the treatment it turned out that it did not hurt.

This is the interior jaw.

We treated one tooth at a time, slowly, so that it would be easier to accept a new situation that caused fear in the patient.

Finished restorations
And finally, a photo with my dear patient and a couple of tips for patients who are afraid, from a patient who was afraid, but cured everything! Good luck!
