On the first day of my D3 fall semester I entered axium to check the different cases that were assigned to me by the school. After reviewing all of the charts, I decided to start with a case that had been recently treatment planned and treated but now required a prophylaxis. This seemed like a manageable case for me to work on as my first in the restorative department. I reviewed the radiographs and realized that they were over 6 months old and not entirely diagnostic. I knew that any faculty member that I worked with would require up to date, diagnostic radiographs. Upon reviewing the radiographs, I found that not only were there no restorations placed in mouth, but that she had 9 carious lesions present.

Regenerative medicine refers to the repair of, or the replacement of organs, cells and tissues in a human system. This will be done to tissues, cells or organs that have been damaged by disease, trauma or being damaged over extended periods of time. There are several ways to repair the organs, tissues or cells but the most promising way of doing this is with stem cell therapy. Regeneration and therefore revitalisation of these organs, tissues or cells can and should be done as they get worn-out, using stem cell therapy to carry out the restoration. The definition of worn-out is: damaged to the point of no longer being usable.

Dental implant is a form of cosmetic dentistry that is used to replace missing teeth for a more natural look and feel (Kotrzewski). When there is missing teeth, chewing ability is lost; not choosing to replace missing teeth can cause other teeth to be lost as well. One will have to replace missing teeth as soon as possible, because if chosen otherwise, in the end, there will be no teeth at all. Other obvious reasons to replace lost teeth, is that it can affect someone’s appearance and there could be a loss of self-esteem. The implants are there to aid in speaking and chewing problems that were caused by missing teeth.
