It is designed to minimize the progression of periodontal disease in patients that have been previously treated for periodontal problems. This is an ongoing prevention program of periodontal cleanings and evaluations. (Concepts, 2016) Every visit will include reviewing changes in the medical and dental history and completion of a oral exam to check for hidden problems. This includes an oral cancer screening and a thorough periodontal and dental examination. Changes in bone level and presence of caries can be easily seen by taking a radiograph.
If choosing to attend a community college you are going to take the basic classes that are required for a dental hygienist. After finishing those classes in your first year of college you are going to apply for the dental hygiene program. If you are accepted right away you are going to start your first year of clinicals. Clinicals are usually two years long. In this time you are practicing hands on cleaning teeth and oral examinations.
The oral cavity of the patient is a good habitat for growth of multiple microorganisms, so transmission of infection can occur easily in the dental clinic from patients to dentists or from patients to other patients via different routes such as oral fluids, blood, and contaminated instruments. (1)(2) (17) The pediatric dentist has to consider these multiple sources of infection and in order to prevent their transmission, he has to use a variety of barrier techniques in the dental clinic. Barrier techniques (gloves, face masks, and protective glasses) must be worn during dental treatment to assure the concerns of dentists and parents regarding cross infection. (3) Due to increased incidences of contagious diseases such as hepatitis, swine
These techniques include: low-level laser treatment to periodontal tissues, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation. Additionally, some degree of pain control by vibratory stimulation of periodontal ligament has been accomplished(9,10). Analgesics are used routinely after various dental procedures to alleviate pain. These analgesics are divided into two groups: non-narcotic analgesics(NSAID) and narcotics(opioids). Aspirin, ibuprofen and paracetamol are the most commonly Non-Steroidal Anti- Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) used to alleviate dental pain(11).
Many centers have special “short-stay” units or “23-hour admissions” for postoperative observation following this procedure (Jensen, et al. 2007). Indications: 1. Asymptomatic (silent) gallstones: Cholecystectomy is not indicated in most patients with asymptomatic (silent) gallstones, because only 2-3% of these patients go on to become symptomatic each year. For an accurate determination of the indications for elective cholecystectomy, the risk posed by the operation (with individual patients’ age comorbid factors taken into account) must be weighed against the risk of complications and death if the operation is not done (Murshid, 2007).
Prosthodontists must complete a dental school and obtain a professional license followed by a 3-year residency program in prosthodontics. 2. Prosthodontists are one of nine dental specialties that spend most of their time on appearance of teeth using restoration substitutes. 3. A big part of their salary comes from replacing damaged or missing teeth with appliances, such as crowns or dentures.
“THE CLINICAL APPLICABILITY OF THREE TOOTH NOTATION SYSTEMS IN PRIMARY TEETH” Background/ Introduction: Different regions in the world use different tooth notations according to their convenience and comfort. Also, two students belonging to the same college use different tooth notation systems which might lead to confusion and end in dental gaffe when using referral letters. To avoid this, apart from FDI system, in the recent times, Havale’s alphanumeric system and MICAP notation (Molar Incisor Canine Akram Premolar) were introduced as two novel systems. Aim and Objectives: To assess the universal clinical applicability of three tooth notation systems in primary teeth among the first year undergraduate dental students. Materials and Method: A total of 100 first year undergraduate dental students were initially taught all the three
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. Different databases
Immediate Molar Replacement Introduction: The utilization of dental implants as a viable treatment option for the management of missing teeth has proved to be a successful and predictable option. (1) The original protocol proposed by Branemark (2) involved the placement of an implant in an edentulous area after adequate healing following tooth loss. The placed implant should be submerged and covered for periods ranging between six to eight months to allow for adequate healing without any exposure to the oral environment to prevent infection and provide better primary stability. Following the healing period, a second surgical procedure is performed to uncover the implant and allow for its prosthetic rehabilitation. Based on the success of the
As these ingredients are broken down, oxygen gets into the enamel on the teeth and the tooth color is made lighter. What is the usual duration of this process? The aggregate treatment should ordinarily be possible within three to four weeks. To begin with, you will require a few visits to the dental practitioner. Your dental team should make a mouth-guard and will take impressions for this at the first appointment.
