It involves the complete displacement of the tooth from its socket and is mostly traumatic. Treatment: the tooth can be reimplanted based on the condition of the periodontal ligament fibers and subsequently splinted with suture or splint material.

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
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.
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
Before Bill was given medication, food, or fluids he was assessed for ineffective swallow by the nurse. If the screening shows swallow impairment the patient must be referred to SALT within 24hours (NICE,2008). The screen used in this hospital was the “Stroke dysphagia screen” (Lepine,2009 cited in Barnard,2011). This involves giving an alert patient (absent of facial droop and with a gag reflux) a sip of water, if they can swallow without coughing/choking they are allowed more and observed for coughing/choking (Barnard, 2011). If facial droop present, as in this case, the test is not done and the protocol requires immediate referral to SALT.A nursing diagnosis of “ineffective swallowing” was
Cholestatic Jaundice, Biliary Atresia Regular blood extraction should be planned to prevent children to be uncooperative in the plan of care. Nursing procedures must be explained well in order to secure the consent from blood transfusions and radiologic examinations. Conversation for possible operation and transfer eventual transfer to surgery ward should be open up. 12. Achalasia Health teachings include radiologic procedures and operation.
HEMISECTION AND BICUSPIDIZATION – A REVIEW ARTICLE Latest advances in dentistry has become a boon to patients to maintain a functional dentition for a lifetime. Retaining a teeth may involve combining restorative dentistry, endodontics and periodontics so that the teeth are retained in whole or in part. Thus tooth resection procedures are used to preserve as much tooth structure as possible rather than sacrificing the whole tooth. (1)(2) The term tooth resection denotes the excision and removal of any segment of the tooth or a root with or without its accompanying crown portion. Various resection procedures described are : root amputation, hemisection, radisection and bisection.

A dentist, like Lennox Lin, will create a prosthetic dental implant that matches the surrounding teeth. This implant can be worn regularly, and the patient can eat and speak normally with the implant in place. Another common form of restorative dentistry is the dental crown and bridgework. These pieces are made using prosthetic materials that mimic the color and shape of the other teeth in the mouth. Crowns and caps are covers that are affixed over the tooth, while bridgework is a fully false tooth/teeth that is secured to neighboring healthy teeth.
