Due to these reasons, much importance is given to chemical cleaning and disinfection of canals as opposed to thorough mechanical shaping of the canals. The pathway of progression of the infection and the ecology of infecting microorganisms are different in the deciduous dentition as compared to the permanent dentition.5 Hence, for complete elimination of infection irrigation is an important step for the success of pulpectomy.3 Studies have demonstrated that despite the use of antimicrobial agents, microorganisms such as Enterococcus faecalis, Prevotella intermedia and Porphyromonas gingivalis persists in the root canal of the primary teeth. Therefore, an ideal irrigating solution should provide mechanical flushing, be bactericidal, and dissolve the remnants of the organic tissue without damaging the periodontium. It must be biocompatible and nontoxic both locally and
CONTEMPORARY TRENDS IN PERIODONTAL PLASTIC SURGERY ABSTRACT The goal of periodontal therapy is to establish and maintain the dentition and periodontium in health, comfort and function with optimal esthetics throughout the lifetime of the patient. This represents a modification in the thought processes of many dentists because the “dentition” now includes both natural teeth and dental implants. Although treatment parameters still include the basics of health, comfort and function, “esthetics” has recently become an integral portion of the overall goal. Most patients will not accept periodontal treatment without the perception of an acceptable esthetic outcome. The presence of mucogingival problems and gingival recession around anterior, highly visible teeth exemplifies a situation in which a treatment modality that addresses both biological and aesthetic demands is required from the therapist.
Class III fracture is fracture involving the pulp and Class IV is fractures of the root. Treatment: In Ellis Class III, the tooth is covered with calcium hydroxide cement as an emergent treatment. Endodontic treatment is the final call. In Class IV, the tooth is extracted. If lesser than one third of the root is affected, then it may be salvaged.
The activity of lesions need to be determined as cavitated lesions continue to trap bacterial plaque and need to be restored. A single observation will only tell the clinician about the condition of the tooth at that single point in time; but, it will not determine whether the demineralization increasing or, perhaps decreasing. The small lesion needs to be well examine than the larger lesion (Whitaker., 2006). Most of dental caries detection research focused occlusal and smooth surface caries. A critical factor to consider is that
A hygienist is known for cleaning plaque off all surfaces of the teeth and gums and teaching patients how to floss properly. At Rt 1 Dental, the hygienist goes more in depth to explain how bacteria build up can affect the teeth by using teeth models and videos. If you are already diagnosed with bacteria build up or periodontal disease, the hygienist also has the tools to help patients control the inflammation caused by the bacteria. Fluoride is one product used in the office to help prevent tooth decay. When it comes to cosmetics, the hygienist is well versed in teeth
They also inform patients on how to maintain a good diet to improve their dental and gum health. Hygienists also clean, polish, inspect for cavities and loose fillings, look for cracks in teeth and remove plaque and calculus from teeth. There are so many responsibilities that the dental hygienist must take
So obviously the teeth are extremely important and a major factor for treating the patient’s pschyological disturbance. Meanwhile, the dentists should literally describe for the patient the advantages and disadvantages of the complete denture,and for the patient all the right and decision to choose whether to make it or not.This is considered the most ethically treatment for the patient inorder to gain patient’s trustworthy and respect.so support of denture inaddition to retention and stability should be indicated and the denture should be constructed by very careful and accurate
With a procedure called recontouring, your dentist can reshape the tooth so that it's a better match.Mild chips of enamel or mild alignment corrections can be done with composite fillings. The full conservative cosmetic dental procedures have greatly enhanced a dentist's ability to give their patients a better
Introduction This literature review has examined the importance of gingival retraction in dental & Surgical procedures. Today, gingival retraction is the most widely used technique in the construction of dental prosthetics (Abadzhiev, 2009). There are various materials that can be used for retracting gingiva, however, it is important to select the material considering its effect on periodontium. For a prosthetic restoration to be functional and to be successful in long term, it should be properly adapted to the finish line of the preparation. Therefore, marginal integrity becomes an important factor for the success of the prosthetic restoration.
(Euro j prosthodont) Preventive prosthodontics emphasizes the importance of any procedure that can delay or eliminate future prosthodontic problems. (Kalpana.C, Vamsi Prasad.K. Seeing the Unseen : Preventive Prosthodontics : Use of Overlay Removable Dental Prosthesis. Annals and Essences of Dentistry Vol.-II Issue 3 July – Sept. 2010. P 44-49) The overdenture is defined as a removable partial denture or complete denture that covers and rests on one or more remaining natural teeth, the roots of natural teeth and / or dental implants; a prosthesis that covers and is partially supported by natural teeth, natural tooth roots and / or dental implants–GPT 7.
