If lesser than one third of the root is affected, then it may be salvaged. Knocked out tooth/Avulsion: Cause: It is a true dental emergency. 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 tooth is pre-soaked in doxycycline to slow inflammation for 5 minutes before
In maxillary anterior region, 2% of patients opted for removable partial denture (RPD), 4% opted for fixed partial denture (FPD) while 5% chose implants. Extraction of tooth in maxillary posterior region had 19% of patients chose RPD, 8% chose FPD and about 5% of them chose implants to replace the missing tooth. Tooth extraction of mandibular anterior recorded 4% of patients opted for RPD and 14% chose FPD while another 3% had chosen implants. Mandibular posterior region tooth extraction had 10% of patients opted for RPD, 22% opted for FPD and 4% opted for implants (Figure 1). Patients perception on agreeing it is mandatory to replace the missing tooth are 9%, 79% strongly agreed while 12% disagreed (Figure 2).
The acute deformities are those exhibited within 4 weeks of the injury while chronic deformities are defined as those exhibited after 4 weeks. This injury is classified by Doyle into four groups. The first group is a closed or blunt trauma causing loss of tendon continuity with or without an avulsion fracture. The second group involves laceration at or proximal to the distal interphalangeal joint causing loss of tendon continuity. The third group would involve a deep abrasion with loss of skin, subcutaneous cover and tendon substance.
Introduction- The purpose of this paper is to discuss a rarest case of hidden maxillary tooth in infra-orbital space following trauma. Pediatric dental injuries leading to traumatic tooth displacement is common in children, although it very rare and sometimes challenging to diagnose and treat traumatically embedded tooth in vital tissue spaces which may lead to serious complications if ignored. Case report- A 4-year old male child was brought with injuries on his face and mouth and swelling over left side of face, resulting from fall. The intra-oral examination revealed absence of all maxillary incisors. The paranasal sinus view showed a vague tooth-like object embedded in the floor of left orbit.
Introduction Crowding within the dental arch is a common symptom found in most orthodontically treated patients. Therapy options include conservative methods such as the distalisation of molars or the transversal expansion of the dental arch as well as the extraction of permanent teeth . Whereas the extraction of carious teeth to solve space problems within the dental arch was proposed as early as 1771 by John Hunter , the benefits and necessity of systematic extractions of healthy and sound premolars as enforced by Begg, Jarabak and Tweed  are still a matter of controversy. Within the last decades, the indication of extraction treatment has come to be based on the individual situation of the patients . The decisive criteria are
Overall both the synthetic drug bath salts and crocodil result in damage to both the brain and body. The average lifespan for a crocodil user is 2 years while a bath salts user has a large chance of succumbing to an overdose after building up a tolerance. The drugs themselves have varying can be obtained with varying difficulty in the United States. One thing that is similar in both crocodile and bath salts is that the addiction can be treated through in-patient care involving the proper medical training and cognitive behavior
Bad breath is a sign of poor dental hygiene No one likes bad breath - especially people that deal with chronic bad breath.The condition can decrease self-esteem and the misconception is that it’s related to poor dental hygiene.

Alcohol - based mouthwash is most effective Just because you feel it tingling, doesn’t mean it’s working.
The correct repositioning of the segment should be confirmed along with the location of the fracture line radiographically. If the fracture line is in the apical or middle thirds of the root, a flexible splint should be placed for 4 weeks. If the fracture line is at the coronal third, a flexible splint should be placed for up to 4 months. There should be follow up for the tooth in order to monitor the vitality of the pulp at 6-8 months and then yearly. If there is necrosis of the pulp, then root canal treatment should be done for the coronal
In the event that they do get damaged, you must never attempt to repair them yourself, as you might do further damage. Another disadvantage of dental bridges is that they cannot be easily removed when they start giving you pain and discomfort. Pain is usually caused by food caught between the bridge and natural teeth, tooth decay under the crown, gum disease and other related problems. If you are meticulous about caring for your dentures, then you need not worry about decay and pain. You must follow the dentist's tips regarding flossing and cleaning your bridges to make sy=ure thayt food particles do not get In order to avoid decay and pain, you are required to put in extra effort to make sure that your dental bridges remain clean and strong.
_It does not harm other teeth as it is applied alone without getting a support from a tooth, hence it does not damage the other tooth. _Prevents bone loss: A tooth extraction or loss of tooth causes a physiological loss in the bone tissue around the extraction or loss. If a dental implant is applied to the recent extraction site, the bone loss does not occur. Hence, the implant treatment is the best choice to maintain the bone on the extraction site. It does not cause any deterioration in the mouth and tooth structure of the person because it looks like a natural tooth.
