A dental hygienist noticed that one of her patients was having a periodontal disease that was not noted in the chart. She tried to discuss this with a dentist by stating that her patient have a moderately advanced stage of periodontal disease. The probing results showed that some of the patient's periodontal pockets were 6 mm deep. The dentist response was not to worry about the patient and to keep cleaning out the pockets periodically. The dental hygienist did not feel comfortable treating the patient and asked a dentist to excuse her from performing a treatment.
It is difficult to determine if tooth loss was a result of either advancing age or pathology. However, due to substantial bone resorption (bone loss) of both the mandible and maxilla, tooth loss occurred years before death. It is hypothesized that this individual either was able

Your incisors are important for allowing you to easily bite into foods, and they play a critical role in determining the quality of your smile. Unfortunately, it is fairly common for individuals to crack these teeth. This is often due to an injury, but it can also be the result of extensive decay to the tooth. When this problem arises, it can present some cosmetic and functional challenges for the patient. By having these two questions answered, you should find yourself better able to have this type of dental injury addressed.
When I was a little girl, my most prominent trait was my mouth full of crooked, missing, and cavity-filled teeth. Though I was a happy child, so smiling from ear to ear was something I did quite often, though I was very self conscious of my teeth. When I was about 12 years old, my parents finally mustered up enough money to allow for my teeth to finally be fixed. It was then that we decided the rest of my adolescent life would be dedicated to fixing my teeth. Years of drilling, pulling, cleaning, appointments, and being called a ‘brace-face’ would eventually pay off.
Pain and pain on pressing were elevated, as were limited jaw movement and the bite feeling off. No clicking and popping were found during the clinical exam, suggesting that jaw functioning was not impaired, and this was confirmed by the TMJ Scale. The Non-TMJ scale was also elevated, reflecting the tension headaches. X-rays found no evidence of bony abnormalities. The patient reported significant emotional problems, and borderline stress, probably reflecting the result of eight months of searching for a solution for her pain problems.
The treatment of choice for peripheral ossifying fibroma is local surgical excision as well as the removal of the aggressive agent and forwarding the specimen for histopathological examination (NEVILLE W, DAMM D.D, ALLEN C.M, BOUQUOT J.E, 2008). If the lesion is not completely excisional, the result can be a recurrence and possible additional bone destruction by its evolution, leading to periodontal defects and additional tooth loss (KENDRICK F; WAGGONERW. F, 1996). The objective of this study is to describe a case of jaw injury diagnosed as peripheral ossifying fibroma and confront with data from the current

He was not a licensed or trained orthodontist for him to be able to perform any operation on the patients, which is a perfect example of the derelictions and the duty of the D’s. The four D’s consists of Duty, Dereliction, Direct cause, and Damages. Duty - when a health care provider found guilty of negligence owed a duty care to the accuser. Dereliction is when the person in charge violates the duty of care to the patient. Direct cause occurs when there is a failure to deliver the proper care that results in injuries to a patient.
Baby Teeth Will Fall Out, So Young Children Don't Need to Visit the Dentist Almost four million children of preschool ages suffer from dental cavities. Though many of the teeth will fall out eventually, tooth decay can lead to infections, pain and problems with adult teeth growing in properly. Many parents falsely believe that their children don't need to see a dentist because they properly care for their child's teeth. The germs that cause tooth decay come from bacteria that can easily be spread through a family.
Trauma to the face caused by assault or impact from solid objects, often causes internal orbita fractures. In 1957, Smith and Regan described the term “orbital blow-out fracture” from their observation that blunt eyeball trauma due to a tennis ball or a fist increased intraorbital pressure without disruption of soft tissue integrity or causing a fracture line in orbital rims but could cause orbital floor fractures (1). Such fractures have been categorized as “pure blow-out fractures” in which only the orbita floor is affected, and “impure blow-out fractures” in which fractures of other maxillofacial bones such as zygomatic, maxillary, and nasoethmoid are also affected. The prevalence of pure blow-out fractures is 2.8% to 21.4% in such injuries (2,3).

My Soar major is math, science, and technoglogy. Dental hygeine is specifically related to science, and there is technologies avaiable to help keep your teeth clean. This is a very unique project because I wont just be researching the technology that has already been made, but I will be researching and surveying kids and how they feel about the dentist, and if/how they take care of their teeth. How has the technology used in dental care improved in the last century, and how has it helped kids 4-10 in preventing cavities? Getting braces opened a new interest for me.
