Initial Periodontal Therapy is a treatment which consists of careful cleaning of the root surfaces to remove plaque and calculus from deep pockets and to smooth the tooth root to remove bacterial toxins. Initial Periodontal Therapy reduces gingival probing depths and inflammation, and it shifts the bacterial composition living in these pockets from one associated with disease toward one associated with health. Thus, Initial Periodontal Therapy is usually the first mode of treatment recommended for most of the patients. This paper reviews and discusses the concepts underlying Periodontal Initial Therapy, its indications and limitations, and presents clinical case reports of the patients undergone Periodontal Initial Therapy.

INTRODUCTION The principal goal of the Prosthodontics is to control oral disease while restoring aesthetics and function with durable biocompatible restorations. Knowledge of the responses of periodontal tissues to fixed partial dentures is crucial role in in the development of treatment plans with predictable prognoses. During diagnosis, treatment planning, and active therapy, each patient’s needs must be considered in light of the available evidence, which includes published clinical trials, anecdotal reports from peers, and personal clinical experiences. Critical evaluation of available evidence should be included in the decision-making processes for a predictable result. The fixed partial denture (FPD) is a common treatment available for the restoration of partially edentulous ridges, as it serves as an excellent means of
ACE Dental is a complete software solution for dental practices which is efficient and cost effective. ACE enables users to work with information about the current dental state of their patients, a complete dental history, helps keep records of treatments, any materials used, billing for services delivered, giving work hours to medical staff, patient check-ups and so on. • Patient Records System Electronic dental records on ACE are set up so that they are not too different to traditional paper records. This aims to help give dental staff an easier transition from current practices to the use of electronic records, with minimal training needed. The software for patient records has two main parts; the first part contains personal information of the patient.
According to the official guidelines of American Academy of Periodontology, the goals of periodontal therapy are to preserve natural dentition; to maintain and improve health, comfort, esthetics and function; and to provide replacements (i.e., dental implants) where indicated1.Several treatment modalities to achieve these goals are available in periodontics, and they can be broadly classified into either surgical or non surgical approaches. Non surgical approaches include plaque control, supra and sub gingival scaling, root planing and the adjunctive use of chemotherapeutic agents. Non surgical therapy aims to eliminate both living bacteria in the biofilm and calcified biofilm microorganisms from tooth surface and adjacent soft tissues. A reduction in inflammation of the periodontium due to a lesser bacterial load leads to beneficial clinical changes .In addition, non-surgical therapy aims to create an environment in which the host can more effectively prevent pathogenic microbial recolonization using personal oral hygiene
Dental braces have become very essential nowadays. However, if you need dental braces, you should visit an orthodontist. You will note that an orthodontist is basically a dentist who in addition to getting training in dentistry, has also obtained advanced orthodontic training. This actually refers to the dental practice of inserting and removing various types of dental braces. Your orthodontist can help to straighten the misaligned teeth and improve your biting by correcting the way your teeth come together.
Clinical audit is a continuous process that analyzes procedures through various aspects adapted during diagnosis and treatment of patients to ensure successful outcomes especially in pathology, staff training, quality and most uniquely the safety among staffs. Vertical audit is one of the types of clinical audits performed in medical laboratories, which involves analyzing the ways, a simple sample undertakes all pre analytical, analytical and post analytical procedures form reception to report issuing (Pitt and Cunningham, 2013). The scenario explained above fulfills all mentioned criteria above. Therefore, it can be said that it is more concerned on Quality Assurance (QA). B) Quality assurance can be defined as a plan that ensure quality maintenance
