Vasiliy Karashuk Endodontist
Endodontics is a science about the methods to treat tooth cavity, root canals and inflammatory processes in bones. The structure of the tooth is always the same, but in terms of anatomy, there are always nuances. Each patient is an individual for me, because each body possesses specific features, individual curves, partial or additional anatomy.
No universal tools exist just as no two people are identical. When you are told that one method could be applied to treat everything – this is marketing.
I never thought about becoming a doctor. My parents insisted that I should get technical education, I entered and… quit my studies after my second year. In a minute, I became interested in how dental crowns are made and I started to train to be a dental technician, later on I decided to become a dentist. I have more than 10 years experience so far.
90% of the population brush their teeth in the wrong manner. That is why different toothbrushes started to be invented so that, for example, in the case of wrong brushing, a toothbrush works maximum properly. In fact, if you brush your teeth in the correct manner, a Soviet-type toothbrush is enough.
I am a doctor who treats acute pain. Visitors often come to me having the nerve inflamed. This is not simple work that is why it is interesting for me.
The way to overcome fear lies via communication. People are afraid of a dentist, because they don’t know what to expect. I always tell them calmly about the procedures I am going to do, and a person’s fear decreases by 60%. Many patients even go to sleep during the treatment, and I just work quietly and calmly.
There is an old saying that a doctor and a teacher are not occupations but these are the state of mind. You should be born a teacher to set your heart to teach children. The same concerns the medical practice. I am in favor of decent doctors doing their job at a high standard and honestly.
It seems to me there are no deadlock situations — as the cartoon about Baron Munchausen demonstrates. Some problems can be resolved fast and immediately, some solutions require time. To be better in any domain, one should go on, even if you’ve made a mistake. He is lifeless who is faultless. When you have a toothache, this is not a problem but just pain, which we will help you to ease.
