These muscles all contribute to the movement of the mouth, are innervated with the facial nerve (N VII), and insert around the mouth.
Diagnosis is made upon visual examination and dental x-rays. Treatment involves tooth extraction, flushing of the affected area and
Nonetheless, our group observed specific locations in the skull that over time, changed among species. The following methodology will include how to observe or examine the different locations that were relevant to the study. By looking for the widest part in the back of the skull the location of the maximum skull breath can be identified. The degree of postorbital constriction can be recognized by observing the space behind the brow/supraorbital ridge. The zygomatic flare can be examined by evaluating how wide is the zygomatic bone. The cranium size can be analyzed by comparing the size of the overall cranium with the size of the overall face. The cranium shape can be determined by analyzing the height and width of the overall skull. The degree of prognathism can be examined by looking at the profile of the skull and determined how much the face projects outward. By looking at the back of the skull and analyzing the morphology of the occipital and nuchal region the shape of occipital and nuchal region can be determined. When determining canine size and diastema, one should analyze and compare the canine to other teeth and the space between the canine and the premolars. The chin or mandibular symphysis can be analyzed by looking at the profile of the mandibule. The shape of dental arcade can be determined by looking at the skull from a ventral view and analyzing the shape that the upper teeth generate. The dentition can be determined by analyzing the size of the overall teeth with the size of the overall facial size. Finally, the retromolar space can be identified by evaluating the space between the last molar and the rest of the
Temporomandibular disorder, or TMD, is a range of disorders that encompass the temporomandibular joint. The temporomandibular joint connects the jaw, or mandible, or the temporal bone. As the reader comprehends this paper, he will come to find that TMD is different from TMJ due to society’s misunderstanding of the disorder. After the student began her research, she hypothesized that anyone could develop a temporomandibular disorder, orthodontic treatment would be the main cause of TMD, and women would have worse symptoms than men would. The student will examine the statistics, symptoms, diagnostic process, the categories of TMD, and treatment of this painful disease.
Orthodontics is one of the major fields in the dentistry. People who suffer from various dental irregularities like, improper jaw alignment, crowded teeth, cross bite, open bite, spacing between teeth, loose tooth, loose tooth, crooked teeth and many more of the dental problems can get rid of these problems through orthodontic treatment. The health care professionals who practice in this are known as an orthodontist.

1-Clinical clerkship in the Eastchester Nursing home in Bronx, NYC : May 2015- present and December 2014-April 2015: working under supervision of Nursing home Director Dr Mortazavi,got introduced to EMR(electronic medical record), responsible for acquiring a complete history and physical exam as well as charting the patients required plan in management, involved performing routine in-patient follow up, admission note and discharge summaries.
DOI: 1/24/2008. Patient is a 57-year old male medical assistant who sustained injury to her neck and right shoulder due to performing normal work duties. Per OMNI, he was initially diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy and stenosis. He was declared P & S by primary treating physician Dr. Chan on 07/23/09 with 9 % permanent disability (PD). Future medical care includes MD visits, ESIs, acupuncture and medications.
Erlenmeyer flask deformity is an abnormality of the distal femur. Although rare, Erlenmeyer’s flask deformity can also be observed in other long bones, such as, the proximal ends of the humeri and tibiae and in the distal ends of the ulnae and radii. The deformity can occur on both sides of the body or on one side. The name “erlenmeyer flask” is gleaned from German chemist Richard Erlenmeyer’s laboratory flask that has a base shaped like a cone and a narrow, cylindrical neck joined by uncurved edges. Thus, this deformity is so named because the distal femur resembles a glass flask where the metaphysis is flared in a conical manner and the diaphysis is constricted or narrowed. The deformity consists of an absence of modeling of the di-metaphysis
The pharynx is a muscular tube that extends supero-inferiorly from the base of the cranium to the level of the inferior surface of the body of the sixth cervical vertebra. The pharynx lies dorsal to the nasal cavity, the oral cavity and the larynx. The nasal portion of the nasopharynx has bony elements in its wall and thus it is rigid, whereas the pharyngeal portion is contractile as a result of the muscular nature of its wall.4
Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMJ) is a group of symptoms identified by the pain caused in the head, face and jaw. These symptoms include soreness in the chewing muscles, headaches, and stiffness or clicking of the joints.
There was one particular case during these past six years working at Plainview Oral and Maxillofacial surgery that made me realize my desire to go to dental school. Dr. Barry Bass and I began preparing for a surgical extraction of the left mandibular second molar. The tooth was infected and formed a large cystic fibroma that was eating away at the patients jawbone. Dr. Bass said this was going to be a long and difficult surgery; nevertheless, I was prepared for the challenge. I reviewed the Cone Beam CT scan to see what specific instruments the doctor may want for the surgery, other than the general surgical tray. Sometimes the doctors choose instruments that I would never think to use and I am eager to learn the tools and tricks of the
The root canal is a very common dental procedure. In the United States, more than 25 million root canal procedures are performed every single year. According to the dentists, these procedures are completely safe and harmless. However, the scientists cannot agree with this opinion and, over the past 100 years, they have been trying to prove that the root canals can implement danger.
Chondroblastoma is an uncommon benign tumor accounting for less than 1% of bone tumors. It mainly involves the epiphysis or epimetaphysis of long bones.(1) Chondroblastoma with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst is a rare entity and only 13 cases have been reported in the literature reviewed. Ours is a case of calcaneal chondroblastoma with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst. Only two cases of calcaneal chondroblastoma associated with secondary aneurysmal bone cyst (ABC) has been reported till date in the literature reviewed.(1)(2)
As mentioned in the heading,the intention of this thesis is about diagnosis and treatment of the orbital fracture which my is my interest about maxillofacial surgery .In this thesis I would like to concern more bout the treatment of the orbital fractures.
