Traditional restorative dentistry propagated early operative intervention to remove diseased tissue and bacteria. Modern dentistry, however, emphasises on arresting the caries progression and restoring the tooth with minimum tissue destruction. Minimal invasive dentistry is based on this axiom.
Evidence based dental hygiene is the practice of giving your patients the best care possible with a combination of adequate techniques and patient values. When evaluating a patient, it is important to understand their values as well as what that they need clinically to improve their oral health. In today’s society, due to the internet and social media, people are presented with the latest fads in dental hygiene on a daily basis. When presented with a question in regard to this, we must research rather than just shut the idea down entirely. As a dental hygienist, it is our responsibility to research these fads and see if there is substance (scientific evidence, patient preferences, clinical/patient circumstances and clinicians experience and
I believe this career path is important to the health of populations because of how a person 's oral health and overall health are connected. Correspondingly, the article The Role of Dental Hygienists in Providing Access to Oral Health Care written by Amanda Dunker, Esther Krofah, and Fredrick Isasi states how oral health is an integral part of physical health and wellbeing. The oral diseases that come from the mouth (periodontal, cavities, gingivitis. etc..) have become issues for millions of Americans and can lead to serious consequences, including major chronic diseases, pain, time off from work and school, negative social development in children, and loss of teeth (2014 p.1). As can be seen, the influence dental hygiene can have on
As with natural teeth, patients with implants should use soft-headed toothbrushes; manual, electric, or sonic brushes are all acceptable options.
Dental assistants’ contribution to the doctor is to allow for efficient dental treatment by preparing the patient for the procedure, sterilizing instruments, passing instruments during the procedure, holding suction devices, exposing dental radiographs, taking impressions, and fabricating provisional crowns. Along with crowns, Rt1 Dental offers veneers which are wafer-thin, custom-made shells of tooth-colored materials designed to cover the front surface of teeth to improve your smile. Many people are skeptical about other procedures like cavities and root canals. During these procedures, pain is thought to be the leading dynamic because of the injections. The assistants and Dr. Trakhtman know of various techniques to help lessen the pain
This method is most often used for full-mouth procedures and allows for a full arch of teeth to be placed onto only four dental implants. These implants are placed at strategic angles and intervals using cutting-edge technology. We use a 3D CT scanner to assess and plan the placement, ensuring high levels of predictability and accuracy during the procedure. The four implants are placed in a way that offers the highest level of stability possible: two near the front of the arch, and two further back, positioned at an
Prosthetic Dentistry is a branch of dental science which deals with the replacement of missing teeth and associated structures to restore mainly function and aesthetics. Prosthetic dentistry is further divided into Fixed Prosthodontics - which the restorations are immovable, fixed and cemented, they can’t be removed except by the dentist such as crown and bridge- and Removable Prosthodontics –which the restorations are easily removed and inserted back into the mouth by the patient on his own such as complete and partial dentures- they both serve the aim of prosthetic dentistry.
This is also a procedure for denture and they have proved to be stronger and durable compared to the restorative counterparts. It may be either crowns or bridges or even removable dentures. The dental implantation is a permanent solution to the loss of teeth. It is like a steady foundation to the restorative solutions of teeth. The greatest advantage is that it is resistant to cavity. The procedure of dental implant is considered to be the most effective in a functional way. It involves a huge cost and it will depend upon the oral surgeons who perform the surgical
Losing your teeth is serious business. Without a full set of teeth, you can have trouble eating the foods you love and need to stay healthy. Your jawbone is supposed to have roots in it, so without teeth, it can start to deteriorate and get weaker. And then there’s the impact missing teeth have on your smile. No one wants to look at a smile with no teeth there! That’s why there are many different treatments to fill in that gap. If you want the right combination of strength, durability, and looks, you should consider a dental implant. And if you have a full arch of teeth missing, we have All-oOn-4 implants to help.

Dental hygiene is necessary due to the fact that it generates a healthier society. They provide and promote above average hygiene, which is beneficial to anybody.

In this study patients went through a period of trial of 3 months. In each month they were doing different oral hygiene measure:
The reality is that dentures are for anyone who needs them. Teeth can be lost for any number of reasons. Poor dental hygiene is certainly one of them, but so is disease. Certain illnesses and the medications to treat them can adversely affect the health of your teeth and compromise them. Severe accidents such as motor vehicle collisions can also necessitate a full mouth restoration with cosmetic dentures.
This report describes the replacement of a failed implant which was originally inserted immediately after a tooth was extracted using the socket shield technique, the second implant was placed at the same site without losing the socket shield, then the implant was successfully loaded by a PFM prosthesis, after more than one year of implant replacement, the patient is still under observation and no signs or symptoms of a failure to the
Dental veneers are thin coatings of ceramic or tooth-colored materials like composite resins. They are usually placed on the front surface of the teeth for aesthetic results. Dental veneers act as a conservative solution for cosmetic problems. Porcelain veneers are more popular as compared to the composite veneers. The direct composite veneers are discussed in ‘tooth bonding’ section.
