Thus, preventing the process of disease. According to the official guidelines of American Academy of Periodontology, the goals of periodontal therapy are to improve and maintain health, to conserve natural dentition comfort, esthetics and function; and to provide replacements (i.e., dental implants) where indicated1. In periodontics several treatment stratigies to achieve these goals are available. They can be broadly classified into either non surgical or surgical approaches. Non surgical approaches comprise plaque control, supra and sub gingival scaling, root planing and the adjunctive use of chemotherapeutic agents.
The goal of periodontal therapy is to eliminate disease and restore the periodontium to a state of health, which includes comfort, function, and esthetics that can be maintained adequately by both the patient and dental professional. Nonsurgical therapy aims to control the bacterial challenge characteristic of gingivitis and periodontitis while addressing local risk factors and minimizing the potential impact of systemic factors. Alteration or elimination of putative periodontal pathogens and resolution of inflammation are paramount objectives of nonsurgical therapy, creating an environment conducive to periodontal health and decreasing the likelihood of disease progression. The term nonsurgical therapy includes the use of oral hygiene self-care,
benefits of planned therapy, the wishes of the characteristics patient regarding treatment, and the economic costs associated with therapy. The best approach to treating cancer provides a balance between therapeutic effectiveness and minimization of treatment-associated side effects. Surgery Excision of tumor is the most frequently employed form of tumor therapy. More patients are cured of cancer with surgery than any other treatment method. In recent years, combining it with other treatment modalities such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy has enhanced the effectiveness of
Assignment: Supportive Periodontal Therapy Intervals By: Aoife Malone, 1st year Dental Hygiene Date: 06/05/16 Key words: • Periodontal Maintenance Procedures • Supportive Periodontal Treatment • Supportive Periodontal Therapy • Recalls • Periodontal Maintenance Therapy Introduction: Supportive Periodontal Treatment is an extension of periodontal therapy. Procedures performed at selected intervals to assist the periodontal patient in maintaining oral health. These usually consist of examination, an evaluation of oral hygiene and nutrition, scaling, root debridement and polishing of teeth. (Loe, H et al 1996) these procedures are performed at different intervals to a periodontal patient in maintaining oral health. Supportive periodontal therapy
Common procedures performed by hygienists include scaling and root planing for patients with periodontitis, applying dental sealants, administration of fluoride, and providing instruction for correct oral hygiene and care. Scaling and root planing, also called conventional periodontal therapy, non-surgical periodontal therapy, deep cleaning, or dental prophylaxis, is the process of removing the etiological agents that cause periodontitis. That is, dental plaque and calculus (tartar). Figure 41 shows dental calculus on the posterior surface of the lower incisors. Dental plaque is a pale yellow film that develops on the teeth surfaces.
These factors include trust, support, mutual respect and collaboration when a colleague is sick (Norris, 2012). This incident had prompted me to think about several important aspects of nursing for me. Nurses should apply human factors knowledge to clinical settings to enhance teamwork and workplace culture. Human factors application is important for patient safety. The underlying reasons for clinical errors are often associated with poor communication, teamwork, leadership, and assertiveness in the clinical settings.
INTRODUCTION The major goals of periodontal therapy includes elimination of infection and controlling inflammation in order to arrest the progression of disease, and also the regeneration of lost tissues. Various biomaterials have been used for the treatment of intrabony defects and have demonstrated variable results . Recently, biological modifiers (growth factors) demonstrated their ability to stimulate cells which are located in periodontal defect and resulted in proliferation and differentiation of periodontal ligament cells . Biological modifiers are materials or proteins that have the potential to modify the host tissue so as to enhance wound healing process. These growth factors comprise platelet derived (PDGF), insulin
The first is that the host needs to be exposed to the pathogen. This could happen in variety of ways, such as being exposed to infectious substances, or coming in contact with infected body fluids of an infected person. The second is that the pathogen must come in contact with the epithelial surface of the host.
INTRODUCTION: The goal of modern prosthodontic in dentistry is to restore normal function, comfort, aesthetic, speech, and health to individuals who are missing teeth. This is because our population is ageing and there is increasing number of individuals being affected, hence the extraction of irrecoverable tooth. However, the more the teeth in the same person is missing, the more challenging this task can become. As a result of continuous research developing various innovative ways of treatments, predictable success is now a reality in many challenging dental situations. Patient’s need for prosthodontic are determined by the features of functional, aesthetic, psychological and social impacts due to tooth loss .
