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
CONCLUSION In this paper, a novel approach is proposed to detect the measure of the teeth from dental x-ray images. The top hat-bottom hat transformation is followed by smoothening of the image to enhance the contrast and the boundaries of the image respectively. The statistics of the teeth are calculated so as to provide the dentists with an accurate and faster method of the detection of the measure of the teeth. The work has given appreciable results and can be aimed for coloured dental
Mesiodens may be single or multiple and often remain unerupted8. Gunduz et al. documented the occurrence of one supernumerary tooth in 76.8% cases and two mesiodens bilaterally on either side of midline in 23.1% cases and they further informed that only 25% of mesiodens erupt into the oral cavity9. During dental development the interplay of different factors can cause some malocclusion. The case report described here involved an interaction of two major factors, a mesiodens and a high frenum attachment (which was later encountered although) leading to a 5-6mm midline diastema.
Perhaps the best definition of EBP was one given by David Sackett et al. (1996) “ EBP is the conscientious, explicit and judicious use of current best evidence in making decisions about the care of the individual patient. It means integrating individual clinical expertise with the best available external clinical evidence from systematic research” (p.71). The method varies according to the particular area in which a professional works. For example, a medical practitioner might prove treatment effectiveness not only through proven trails, his knowledge, judgment and personal experience but also through the use of trustful external evidence-based resources, such as Cochrane Library, Best Evidence, Evidence –Based Medicine among others.
This result supports the results of the previous studies and systematic reviews on determinants of patient satisfaction. 24, 139 However, there is evidence that socio-demographic factors of patients affect the satisfaction with health services. Yet, the contradictory effects of the socio-demographic variables may show that these variables should be taken into account when comparing patient satisfaction between specific groups or countries 24, 141 due to their potential moderating and mediating effects on the associations between health service quality indicators and patient satisfaction. 4,
4. Study justification 4.1 Background 4.1.1 Introduction Bone substitution is becoming more relevant in an age where the prevalence of bone disorders and conditions has a steep upward trend and where the population grows older, is more obese and has low physical activity. The expectations are aiming for a worldwide doubled incidence. (15) Because of the histological compatibility and the immunogenic advantage, autologic bone grafts nowadays still serve as the golden standard in bone substitution. Moreover, autografts have several key components to achieve osteoinduction (i.e., bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs), osteogenesis (i.e., osteoprogenitor cells) and osteoconduction (i.e., three-dimensional and porous matrix).
The fact that warming sodium hypochlorite would improve its effectiveness was agreed upon by 47.5% of endodontists and 29% of non-endodontists. Preheating sodium hypochlorite solutions tends to improve their tissue dissolving capacity and its efficacy against E.faecalis cells that are present at its stationary phase
The GOSLON Yardstick was introduced by Mars et al. (4). Contrasting other systems, the GOSLON Yardstick is treatment-linked (e.g. anterior crossbite with retroclination of the incisors can be corrected more easily than anterior crossbite with normal incisor inclination) and is therefore more useful than a specific anomaly-score alone. Not only the enucleating effect but also the hereditary skeletal pattern is addressed by this scoring system, as it is based on the prospects for orthodontic rectification.
Aim To determine the success rate in patients undergoing External Dacryocystorhinostomy (DCR) with acquired naso-lacrimal duct obstruction (NLDO), when done by learning ophthalmologists. Materials and Methods A prospective study of adult patients undergoing external DCR was done for acquired complete NLDO. Post-operative success rate was determined by lacrimal sac syringing and subjective resolution of epiphora. Inclusion Criteria Patients suffering with complaints of epiphora, diagnosed as Acquired NLDO confirmed by lacrimal sac
Recently the esthetic it seems to define one's character while in the past functional demands were the important consideration in dental treatment. Nowadays the dentistry is shifted toward the esthetic treatment. Orthodontic treatment is a strategy of aligning the teeth and correcting irregularities which can improve health ,oral function, appearance and social well-being and this treatment in the past focus on correct skeletal relationship while nowadays the facial esthetic become a major issue in orthodontic treatment(4). Malocclusion considered being a public health problem.In some population ,tooth misalignments are not regarded as serious problem need a treatment, while in other population the need of treatment is very high from studies there is an increased seeking of treatment among adult and female more concern about esthetics[1-2-6] , also, this malocclusion affect negatively on facial attractiveness while after orthodontic treatment correction of this problem will in harmony with overall appearance [2-6]. In our country KSA the number of individual seeking an orthodontic treatment is increased recently.
