This is a procedure completed to replace damaged and lost teeth which result from trauma, malformations, and genetic disorders. It went on to discuss regenerative medicine and the types of cells and methods used for this procedure. The document went on to discuss the how the method of tooth regeneration came into being.

The orthodontics branch of dentistry also includes cosmetic dentistry, where patients aim to improve aspects of their physical appearance. Orthodontic treatment should ideally commence when a child is age 12, when the wisdom teeth are out and developed. In case the child has problems with the teeth, treatment may be delayed to address the issues beforehand. On the other hand, children who suffer from conditions such as cleft lip and palate may require early intervention and treatment.
Root planing and scaling – this procedure involves carefully removing plaque and tartar from the deep pockets that have formed around the teeth. During this procedure, bacterial toxins are removed. Following root planing and scaling, some patients will receive additional therapies. Surgical Procedures Laser treatment – studies reveal that laser treatment for periodontal disease provide similar results to those achieved with scaling and root planing.
If there is a history of psoriasis, the doctor can take the throat culture to determine the presence of streptococcal laryngitis. If the throat culture indicates the presence of streptococci, then the doctor may be out of antibiotics. Nail psoriasis Many patients with psoriasis have nail abnormalities.

Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that corrects teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. Crooked teeth and teeth that do not fit together correctly are harder to keep clean, are at risk of being lost early due to tooth decay and periodontal disease, and cause extra stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, TMJ syndrome and neck, shoulder and back pain. Teeth that are crooked or not in the right place can also detract from one 's appearance. The benefits of orthodontic treatment include a healthier mouth, a more pleasing appearance, and teeth that are more likely to last a lifetime.
Horizontal or vertical, the case should be diagnosed by the dentist. If the root was loosened and is movable or not in close proximity to the maxillary antrum, it can be removed using elevators such as Cryer elevator. If the root cannot be removed using intra-alveolar technique for one of the stated reasons or any other reason, a flap providing adequate access to the root area should be made by the oral surgeon and trans-alveolar removal is necessary. However, if the tooth pulp was vital and is smaller than 5mm in diameter, it can be left in
LITERATURE REVIEW TREATMENT: Bracing, Crutches and Rehabilitation Once an anterior cruciate ligament has been injured, treatment has to be carried out as soon as possible. Due to the location of the ACL (at the level of the knee) it poses significant problems for activities of daily life such as walking, climbing and sitting. Depending on the severity of the injury, an ACL reconstruction surgery may be performed. During this reconstructive operation, the deficient ligament is repaired using a tendon graft.
