As opposed to the endodontic triad approach (consisting of biomechanical preparation, microbial control and complete obturation) , shaping to facilitate cleaning and filling might be a more appropriate concept considering that a major goal of root canal treatment is removal of microorganisms from the complex root canal system. Of course, while these objectives are being achieved, conservation of tooth structure and canal m... ... middle of paper ... ...cal blockage, canal deviation and alteration of working length have also been often reported with the step back technique. In addition, apical extrusion of debris during root canal instrumentation has been associated with postoperative pain or discomfort. Thus this method has been effectively superseded by crown down techniques. 4) Due to the differences in techniques, crown down has several advantages over step back, the most important ones being • The ability to open orifices for proper access to coronal one third • Better access • Easier irrigation • More ease in measuring the working length • Minimizing pushing debris and bacteria apically • Decrease in canal blockages in the apical areas.
The dentist is able to see how far the blockage of the RCT reaches, allows the dentist to identify RCs orifice and to get an idea on how to negotiate the root canals15. An example of RC blockage is the appearance of calcification in the RC. Only in rare cases blockages are not identifiable. This location and region of RC blockage allows the dentist to choose the most effective method to remove whatever is blocking the RC so that the RCT can begin, e.g. in order to be able to treat a RC in a maxilla premolar, the access for coronal penetration starts off at the centre of occlusal surface and by following the long axis of tooth.
Stillman’s Brushing Technique: Similar to Bass technique with a slight modification to remove debris more effectively from the embrasures. Bristles are directed apically and angles same as bass, Bristles are placed partly over cervical part of tooth and partly on adjacent gingiva. • Method/ Technique: This technique is similar to Bass technique with just the slight modification of Occlusal movement along with short horizontal strokes. (Short back and forth strokes are used and brush head is moved occlusally with light pressure) • Indications: In case of Gingival Recession, for Gingival stimulation, to clean from large embrasures, remove plaque and biofilm from cervical
After a few more cuts into tissue that would make the lymph node easier to get at, it is removed. Blood vessel should be acknowledged to assist with the cut into the tissues. The bovie also helps by cauterizing these so there is insignificant blood loss. The hepatic artery and gastric artery will be cut free from fastening tissues and ligated*.
Some people tend to believe that a dentist is all about pulling teeth, filling gaps, and drilling holes in a mouth. That may be true, but this is more about the person that treats a patient prior to a dentist drilling into a mouth. Dental Hygienists provide more than just the basic examination. They also give advice on how to properly brush and floss, the types of foods to avoid, and give examples of what teeth could look like if not taken care of correctly. A dental hygienist provides preventive, therapeutic, restorative and educational interventions to promote optimal oral health.
The term hemisection refers to the sectioning of a molar tooth, with the removal of a decaying root which may be affected by cracked roots or caries and periodontal involvement at furcation It is a conservative procedure to save the original tooth structure, which can act as the natural implant. The results of this procedure are predictable and success rates are high. In this case report, hemisection was done because the distal half of the tooth was grossly carious along with furcation involvement. Distal half of the tooth with root was extracted and the remaining mesial half of the tooth was used as an abutment for the fixed partial denture. This treatment represents a form of conservative approach, aiming to retain natural tooth structure
ASSIGNMENT Najla Manis Al-shahrani 432802924 Periodontal versus pulpal abscess The relationship between periodontal disease and pulpal infection occurs primarily by the intimate anatomic and vascular interactions between the pulp and the periodontium. As such, when we as dentists see these periapical lesions affecting the periodontium and the apical tissue, proper diagnosis and treatment is of utmost importance if we are to give the affected tooth a hopeful prognosis. Abscess Definition An abscess is an enclosed collection of liquefied tissue, known as pus, somewhere in the body. It is the result of thebody's defensive reaction to foreign material. Overview A periodontal abscess is a localized collection of pus within the gum, formed by
A knowledgeable dental hygienist will perform a teeth cleaning procedure to remove sticky plaque that develops between teeth and along the gumline. This substance contains dangerous bacteria that causes bad breath and leads to tooth decay or gum disease. Removing hardened tartar with specialized dental equipment improves the appearance of teeth while protecting enamel from additional damage. Stain Free Teeth Using the Kor Whitening System One of the easiest and fastest cosmetic procedures to make teeth look better is a tooth whitening or bleaching process.

Clove oil diluted in a base oil is often rubbed on the area of a toothache to dull the pain, especially in the case of the condition called dry socket (Balch, 2002, p. 411). Dry socket occurs after the extraction of a tooth. The blood clot that prevents the exposure of the bone is lost, causing great sensitivity to the patient. The use of clove oil in this instance can be equally or more effective than traditional pain medications. Clove oil has also made its way into a vast number of current dental products in the form of Eugenol.
(Hill Sampson, 2013.) Using toothpaste is also very important in the brushing process. According to the American Dental Association ADA, brushing with toothpaste is important for several reasons. First and foremost, a toothpaste and a correct brushing action work to remove plaque, which is a sticky harmful film of bacteria that grows on our teeth that causes cavities, gum disease and eventual tooth loss if not controlled. Additionally toothpaste contains fluoride, which makes the entire tooth structure more resistant to decay and promotes remineralization, which aids in repairing early decay before the damage can even be seen.
