What are my Orthodontic treatment options?

What are my treatment options?
Modern orthodontic dentistry offers different types of appliances, both fixed and removable. The best option for your will be the one that fits best your needs, based on the recommendation of your orthodontist.

What are my Orthodontic treatment options?

The most commonly used orthodontic methods are:
 Braces — the most common fixed appliances, braces, move the teeth as a result of force and pressure on them. There are traditionally four basic elements that are used: brackets, bonding material, arch wire, and ligature elastic (also called an “O-ring”). The teeth move when the arch wire puts pressure on the brackets and teeth. Sometimes springs or rubber bands are used to put more force in a specific direction.

Braces haveconstant pressure which, over time, move teeth into the desired positions.

Traditional braces vs. Invisalign aligners
Today’s braces offer many style options. Next to the traditional metal appliances, you can chose from clear styles or lingual braces, which are more preferred options by adults.

  Invisalign Aligners —serial aligners are being used by an increasing number of orthodontists and are usually a first choice of adults. Invisalign aligners move teeth in the same way as fixed appliances, only without metal wires and brackets. Aligners are virtually invisible and can be easily removed for dining and cleaning. Although they are a better option from an aesthetical point of view, they might not be appropriate in some, more severe cases.

What does orthodontic treatment involve?

Orthodontic treatment involves three stages:

What does orthodontic treatment involve?

1.  Planning Stage – Your first couple of visits may include the following:

    A medical and dental history evaluation.
    Castings or “molds” of your teeth. 
    Photographs of your face and mouth.
    X-rays of the teeth and jaws.

After careful planning, your orthodontist will design and apply braces or fabricate custom-made appliances for you.

2.  Active Stage – Active treatment involves visiting your orthodontist on a regular basis for adjustments and following specific treatment requirements to ensure successful treatment.

3.  Retention Stage – When treatment is completed, the braces and/or appliances are removed and a new appliance is made.  Usually these retainers are removable and will help to maintain the changes made to your teeth if worn as instructed.

Treatment and retention times vary depending on each individual case.  However, retention is a lifetime process.  Your orthodontist will ensure you have a successful treatment for a beautiful smile that can last a lifetime.

Orthodontics can not only help straighten your teeth, giving you an appealing smile, but can greatly contribute to the health of your jaw, teeth and sometimes your overall health.

Eight tips to choosing an intraoral camera

The intraoral camera for sale is best described as an instrument that helps dental professionals communicate with & educate their patients. Considered one of the best diagnostic tools available today, there are plenty to choose from and selecting the right one for your practice can be difficult.  The T2 Essential 8 Tips will help cut through the clutter and identify the key features most important to you and your practice.

Deciding which to buy should not rely on a rep’s demonstration. Schedule an in-office demo so you can try the camera on patients before making a decision. And trust your auxiliary staff’s input since they’ll be frequent users.
Get Real!
intraoral camera

A trade show can be a great way to shop for an intraoral camera. With some planning, this is a great way to see multiple products under one roof. All too familiar are reps grasping the camera with two hands showing open margins, cracked molars and amalgams. Believe me? Check out the photo left and ask yourself if this is how you would expect the camera be used in your office? I would hope not. Although image clarity and color acuity are important, ease of use is often misunderstood. Sales reps are trained to make their product appear easy of use – even if they may not be. Bottom line, this is not a realistic condition.
Focus on this

Ease of use is best determined by the cameras lens.  A good optical system has a wide depth of field and requires little or no focusing during the exam.  Position yourself as you would during treatment while holding the camera like a dental hand piece. Although a majority of cameras have it, a focus ring is an adjustment for lack of a good optical system and not an added feature. These focus rings and collars are usually placed on the camera hand piece. If constant refocusing is necessary, then the depth of field is inadequate for your purposes. A difficult product is less accepted by your staff and used less frequently.

Most Wired intraoral cameras today are USB devices – a digital interface that allows direct connectivity to the computer.  What most do not know is that USB has a 15 foot cable length limitation and extending through hubs is never a good idea.  Care must be taken in positioning the computer to allow for this.  The intraoral camera should holster into position much like your high speed hand piece or syringes.  With such a high ROI, the intraoral camera requires easy access – without it, usage suffers.

Risks and complications in orthodontic treatment

Toothache, occasional discomfort or pressure on the teeth
When beginning orthodontic treatment and after the each inspection, you may feel unpleasant pressure on your teeth, toothache, or just discomfort. It depends on the individual and on their pain threshold.

Scratches and bruises
Also, at the beginning of orthodontic treatment, scratches  and bruises may appear on the mucosa, generally caused by a fixed device. In such cases, orthodontic protective wax is employed. Such complaints are temporary and tend to arise over the first 5-7 days after beginning treatment. Later, the mucosa adapts to the braces and the abrasions disappear.

Risks and complications in orthodontic treatment

White spots on the surface of the teeth
This complication is caused by long-term bad oral hygiene. White patches appear around the brackets. The enamel beneath the brackets remains undamaged. A coating built up on the surface of the enamel causes demineralisation. This occurs due to harmful bacteria which break down leftover food around the brackets into acids. The acids eat into the enamel resulting in demineralisation.

This is a stage preceding tooth decay.
If this complication arises and repeated instruction on oral hygiene and visits to a dental hygienist have no effect, the doctor reserves the right to premature termination of treatment. The priority is a healthy set of teeth and only afterwards a straight set.

Gum infection - gingivitis
Insufficient oral hygiene can lead to gum infection. This infection can complicate treatment by meaning slower tooth movement and so treatment is slowed and sometimes leads to irreversible damage to the teeth’s supporting tissues.

Tooth root resorption
Some patients have a tendency to the occurrence of resorption. In practice this means that the teeth’s roots get shorter. This complication however does not shorten the lifespan of teeth.

Relapse of orthodontic defects
Every orthodontic treatment has a tendency to relapse, i.e. the teeth return to their original position. We prevent this by using retention devices and retainers. Retention devices are laboratory products made to fit your teeth exactly.

Retainers are wires which are stuck to the back surface of your teeth to maintain their position. This phase is very important for orthodontic treatment.

Risks in Orthodontic Treatment You Should Know

Orthodontics has the potential to cause significant damage to hard and soft tissues. The most important aspect of orthodontic care is to have an extremely high standard of oral hygiene before and during orthodontic treatment. It is also essential that any carious lesions are dealt with before any active treatment starts. Root resorption is a common complication during orthodontic treatment but there is some evidence that once appliances are removed this resorption stops. Some of the risk pointers for root resorption are summarised. Soft tissue damage includes that caused by archwires but also the more harrowing potential for headgears to cause damage to eyes. It is essential that adequate safety measures are included with this type of treatment.
Key points

Before any active orthodontic treatment is considered it is essential that the oral hygiene is of a high standard and that all carious leions have been dealt with

Arch wires, headgears and brackets themselves may cause significant damage either during an active phase of treatment or during debonding. Much care needs to be taken when instructing patients about their role in orthodontic treatment

The aim of this section is to outline potential risks in orthodontic treatment and to give examples. There are also a number of illustrations to help highlight these points

How do Dental Implants Work?

Because implants fuse to your jawbone, they provide stable support for artificial teeth. Dentures and bridges mounted to implants won't slip or shift in your mouth — an especially important benefit when eating and speaking. This secure fit helps the dentures and bridges — as well as individual crowns placed over implants — feel more natural than conventional bridges or dentures.

How do Dental Implants Work?

For some people, ordinary bridges and dentures are simply not comfortable or even possible, due to sore spots, poor ridges or gagging. In addition, ordinary bridges must be attached to teeth on either side of the space left by the missing tooth. An advantage of implants is that no adjacent teeth need to be prepared or ground down to hold your new replacement tooth/teeth in place.

To receive implants, you need to have healthy gums and adequate bone to support the implant. You must also commit to keeping these structures healthy. Meticulous oral hygiene and regular dental visits are critical to the long-term success of dental implants.

Implants are usually more expensive than other methods of tooth replacement, and most insurance carriers typically cover less than 10 percent of the fees.

Long-Term Complications With Dental Implants

1. Failure to keep the area clean and maintained
So you finally have your dental implants and your final teeth are in place and now you’re ready to bite into crisp apples and smile bigger than ever before.

Long-Term Complications With Dental Implants

Now before you go riding off into the sunset with your new pearly white(s), it’s very important you maintain these new teeth and implants. Although I mentioned in previous blogs that implants are not prone to the same problems we see with natural teeth such as fracture decay and in infections they do require maintenance. I have treated patients who lost their teeth due to long term neglect and lack of care…sometimes these same people still seem to forget to brush their teeth now that they have implants!

2. Too much stress and forces on the implants
Once an implant has integrated with the bone it is extremely solid…it feels much like a “nail in concrete”. Unfortunately bone is not concrete. If there is excessive stress on a dental implant physiologically the bone will be lost. This may create a periodontal (gum) pocket which in turn will then allow unhealthy bacteria to grow and colonize….this sets up a cascade of event whereby more bone can be lost, infection  set in and the implant can eventually be lost.

3. Less than ideal placement or treatment planning
In some cases patients have had dental implants placed very successfully and have healed very well, only to find that when the teeth are to be made the implants cannot be used. In some cases it is because the implants are not in the right location or angle or the esthetics of the situation will not allow the implant to be useful.

The Potential Side Effects of Dental Implant Surgery

The Potential Side Effects of Dental Implant Surgery

Though dental implant surgery itself is minimally invasive, there are some side effects that can be expected after surgery. Side effects include:
Pain: Pain is one of the most common side effects of dental implant surgery. Patients may feel pain within the gum tissue around the incision site, jaw pain, or even facial pain around the treated area. Some oral surgeons prescribe pain medication or recommend an over-the-counter option. If taking over-the-counter pain medications, it is important to look for aspirin-free options, like ibuprofen. Aspirin can lead to bleeding problems after dental implant surgery. Pain should decrease as the body heals. If pain does not lessen or becomes worse, this could be a sign of infection or other complication, and should be brought to your dentist's attention immediately

Swelling: Another possible side effect of dental implant surgery is swelling. Swelling is a natural part of the healing process and will likely be seen immediately after surgery. Swelling may occur within the gum tissue around the incision or may also be seen in the facial tissue on the side of the face where a dental implant was placed. Gently placing an ice pack to the area of swelling can help reduce it and ease pain.

The Potential Risks of Dental Implant Surgery
In addition to knowing the side effects of dental implants, it's also important to understand the risks before undergoing this treatment. The potential risks include:

Infection: Infection can occur after dental implant surgery if precautions aren't taken to keep the incision site clean and free of bacteria. Following all post-operative instructions and practicing good oral hygiene can reduce the risk of infection.

Implant failure: Dental implants can fail if the jaw bone doesn't fuse to the implant. Infection and smoking are the leading causes of implant failure.
Temporary or permanent nerve damage: Though rare, nerve damage may occur from dental implant surgery, causing numbness or tingling of the affected tissue.

Why to choose this treatment dental?

Dental restorations generally look, feel and act like natural teeth. It may offer you important advantages compared to other treatment options:

Improves chewing efficiency
Enhanced appearance
To get greater self-confidence and better quality of life

Why to choose this treatment dental?

Possible risk factors before you go for surgery and how to overcome these risks:

Bacteria Build Up:
Bacteria build up can cause receding gums, and it makes the implant screws to be visible and also allows bacteria to cause infection. Healthy dental practices are important post surgery.

Infection and Inflammation:
There may be infection and inflammation in areas which are surrounding the dental implant because of bacteria. Improper dental hygiene will create this. Moreover it occurs frequently in diabetic patients and people who smoke.

Implant may be rejected by our immune system. People who smoke are at higher risk of this problem. So the best way to succeeded is to quit smoking as per dentist's recommendation after the surgery. Also people who grind their teeth must undergo the treatment of teeth grinding.

Trapping nerves:
Damage to the nerves while placing the tooth will lead to many complications like pain while talking, eating and when shaving. It is challenging to accurately place the implant in the supporting bone. Our dentists have successfully completed the surgeries in many of our patients. Dr. McKaskle Cinco Ranch Family Dentist located in Katy, We care for the smile of patients. Our goal is to provide superior quality dental care. We consider both aesthetics and dental health factors when performing the treatment which enables us in coming out with wonderful smiles for our patients.

The handpiece is one of the most commonly used dental instrument in practice today. With many applications in endodontics, general dentistry, and implantology, having a comfortable handpiece that works well is essential. In many countries the high speed, air-driven turbine is the most popular option, because the system is much cheaper than an electric handpiece and it is easy to service. However, the electrical handpiece is rapidly gaining popularity and is used beside a turbine more frequently in Europe and Asia.

  • Supreme oyodental motor with 35,000rpm high torque built in safety device with foot control.
  • Dental engine for clinical and phantom lab work, introducing dental micro motor for sale with high performance economical and compact.
  • Electronic control which has smooth start and attains high stop quickly without any jerk.
  • This facilitate motor to start at any speed stop at any speed.
  • Micro motor can be operated either hand or foot control fine tuning or speed by hand only.
  • Reverse and forward rotation, by hand switch, ON/OFF control by foot switch.
  • ISO E-type coupling for all dental micro motor handpiece that is used in the dental units.
  • Clinical and lab with NSK heavy duty Handpiece.

Air driven motors
While not all states require heat sterilization of dental handpieces, dental handpieces should be autoclaved between patients. It’s a given. Every part of a handpiece, from the outside to the inside, from the nosecone to the motor and prophy angles, can be a source of cross contamination if not properly cleaned, disinfected, and heat sterilized. It is just not possible to guarantee sterility and lack of contaminated bioburden if only barrier protection and disinfection wipes are employed. This kind of high speed handpieces tend to have a higher speed, but a lower torque, especially as compared to an electrical piece. However, when a bur comes into contact with the tooth, resistance builds up and slows down the bur to 150.000 – 300.000 rpm. The harder the load of the bur is, the slower the bur spins. In the last 10 years, the power of the turbines increased significantly so that the standard turbines have nowadays a power of over 20 Watt, where a load of 3 N to the tooth will be no problem. Under the recommended standard load of max. 2 N the turbine has a higher milling efficiency, due to the higher speed. Only at a very high load, e.g. when preparing crowns, the milling efficiency of the motor driven high speed is higher.

How does the dental x-ray technology affect nowadays life

Not all dentist offices are created equal. In fact, there can be a wide discrepancy in the quality of treatment patients receive, particularly if a dental office doesn’t invest in the latest technology. Because providing exceptional patient care is our primary concern at oyodental, we aim to offer the latest technological advances in the field of dentistry. To that end, we’re pleased to use 3D dental x-ray technology on our patients. The digital dental x-ray will offer a long list of advantages over the conventional x-ray no wonder more and more dentists are choosing a portable dental x ray unit. By going digital the doctors can offer their patients with expert, top-notch treatments as well as augment the efficiency of their office thereby saving money and time. It will help in facilitating communication with patients and other practitioners. In the case of digital images, they will be available right away to view. Since it uses current technology this becomes easy to improve, enlarge and refine the images of the x-ray.

The best part is the contrast, color and brightness of the x-ray can be adjusted nicely devoid of the need to re-expose the patient again for another film. Now patients are capable of viewing the x-rays right away on the screens of the  placed in each operatory. Besides the digital images can be sent to other physicians within a few minutes. Selection of a dental delivery system is critical in achieving optimal operatory functionality. Among the configurations available are chair-mounted, base-mounted and portable, with chair and base-mounted units available as rear, side, over-the-patient, or over-the-head systems. Rear-delivery systems keep equipment out of patients’ view, are the least expensive way to connect to utilities, and tend to be more ergonomic for 4- versus 2-handed dentistry. The control panels used in the dental chair have undergone various amendments by different brands of manufacturers. The most commonly included control parameters include chair position, operating light intensity adjustment, water spray control and speed control for the pneumatic or electric motor.

The device is manufactured by oyodental. Emergency testing of the product by the Health Protection Agency and scientists at King's College Hospital in London revealed that it has insufficient lead shielding inside it to protect dentists and patients from excessive radiation. The portable dental X ray considered a new dental item that has been introduced recently to the dental market. From that critical point, our oyodental team has the leading research experts that is inspecting each internal part of the portable x ray and make sure that the amount of lead wrapping is following the international standard to prevent any amount of radiation leakage. Dental x-rays are safe. Any kind of x-ray requires radiation, but with dental x-rays, the amount of radiation is very small.

Ways to Straighten Your Teeth

Partial dentures could not be really as aesthetically appealing as a long lasting bridge simply because the clasping wires usually applied to protected them could not be totally concealed. Due to getting detachable, they are not as secure as bridges. They can also impair gum wellness if worn for extended periods, creating great oral hygiene necessary. Their irregular forms also make them somewhat brittle and feeding on involves treatment or even removal to stop breakage. These dental delivery units are significantly less pricey than fixed dental bridges, implants and other sorts of dental kitchen appliances. In simple fact, they are the minimum expensive way to substitute a missing tooth. The variance in their value implies that dental flippers present a distinctive gain to people with tight budgets. The laboratory's technician selects the correct form and range of acrylic teeth in a shade that most carefully matches the specs in the dental flipper prescription.

An acrylic plate is then very carefully molded to in shape the patient's palate (for an upper flipper) or to in shape just inside of the tongue aspect of the patient's teeth (for a decrease flipper). As mentioned previously, dental flippers are relatively low-cost dental kitchen appliances employed to change 1 or far more lacking teeth. Generally, they are utilised on a momentary basis though the patient waits for an a lot more long lasting dental crown or bridge to be fabricated. They can also be applied to guide the healing method following dental implants have been set into place. 

Having a health-related insurance to cover dentures either partly or completely might be of great assistance, so you have to assess what your insurance company might cover. Some may just have incomplete coverage, while others might even answer for everything. For some, they offer compensation from 15% to half the entire dental procedure cost, or actually offer discounts and re-payment schemes, so ensure that you understand what is being protected or not. If the price still be deemed too much, you may need to have your dentures done in other countries.

Several Ways for You to Cope With Teeth

Lately, getting through the night has been pretty rough. My son, Michael, is going to bed as well as could be expected on a 1-year-old, but he has been waking up hours before dawn. Sleep deprivation can bring a lack of observation. I failed to notice the telltale signs – runny nose, irritability, appetite loss, chewing on everything including his own fingers. Finally it occurred to me that he’s been trying to send a message the whole time: new teeth! Unfortunately, there is no easy baby sign language for them to explain this phenomena.

Teething Tip 1: Know the signs! Runny nose, irritability, chewing, appetite loss, bad sleep schedule

My daughter’s teeth all seemed to come in at once and early. I remember losing teeth as a child and then a new tooth showing up in its place over the next couple of weeks. The worst part was the losing of the loose tooth. For a baby, it is the opposite -a baby does not yet have the gum path forged. In many cases, parents can discover the little white peak and call the grandparents over to see. By the next day, about the time that the out-of-town grandparents arrive, the tooth has disappeared! The gum actually envelops the tooth once again forcing your child’s teething to begin anew. This can happen several times before the gums give up and the tooth is allowed to protrude from their swollen plain.

Teething Tip 2: Take a picture before the grandparents arrive or they will doubt you. Gums work faster than they drive.

Not all children have teeth emerge after a few months. One of my coworkers was worried all the way up until his daughter’s second birthday because she had no teeth. She found ways to gum through softer foods like bananas and mashed potatoes just fine. Her dentist assured my coworker that by age 5, all kids end up with about the same number of teeth – as long as she wasn’t malnourished, he was fine. And sometimes, you can put him or her on a folding portable dental chair which will make her comfortable and relaxed.
GM-C006 Portable Dental Folding Chair
Teething Tip 3: Get a good picture of “uppers” by flipping the kid upside-down while someone takes a quick picture with a camera that has a quick focus and flash

The American Dental Association recommends using a clean finger to soothe your child’s gums as they are teething. Any experienced parent or person thinking clearly will tell you that sticking your finger in your child’s mouth when they are gumming is not a good idea. While their bodies are quite small and fragile, their jaw reflex is incredibly powerful and they will chew right into your finger – tooth or not. I need my hands to work and came up with an alternative teething device. While I sometimes have a non-traditional approach to parenting, teeth whitening lamp for sale has not been an exception. Sanding down an inch-thick wooden dowel may not have gotten me many points from the mothers walking with bags from baby boutiques, but it got me results. Gnawing on these dowels kept my daughter happy through her teething and cost very little. Also, like I mentioned in a previous article, hardware stores are open earlier to accommodate contractors and tired fathers!
Magenta® Teeth Whitening Light/Lamp MD669 + VITA® Toothguide 29 Color Shades
Teething Tip 4: Once your child grows out of teethers and becomes a toddler, save and freeze the rings to be used to comfort their various bruises and cuts as they run and trip and bump into the house you once believed was childproof.

If traditional and non-traditional teathers are still not doing the trick, it may be time for the big guns. I am often asked why I don’t “write an article about rubbing rum, whiskey or brandy on the baby’s gums to numb them – that’s what my parents did and I turned out fine.” Of course, this is usually mentioned to me in a semi-drunken slur by non-parents. While I do propose that using rum as a teather will lead to future alcoholism, I have also never seen any reports to the contrary. Our family doctor recommended basic teething dentist equipment for sale gel and baby Tylenol used only occasionally as directed on the package – it has done us well thus far.

Finally, with the loss in appetite, frustration can ensue. A tired parent can be less creative and less understanding when their child stops eating the same foods that have made them happy since nursing. If you think that your child may be teething, try out frozen peas, corn, blueberries or soybeans. Depending on the child’s age and the size of the food, blueberries or soybeans may be too large. At feeding or snack time, present them with a small bowl of frozen peas and watch them gobble them up. My kids both know where to point in the freezer (even when it is closed) to get to the peas. Aside from good nutrition during teething, I may have discovered the sign language sign for teething after all !

How Much You Know About The Micro Motor Handpiece?

Electric micromotor dental units are available alone, as slow speed handpieces for polishing and drilling, or combined with an ultrasonic scaler.
How It Works
The dental portable unit can polish or cut. The handpiece is driven by an electric motor in the handle. The polishing cup, or bur, can variably rotate from 0 to 30,000 rpm and go forward or reverse. It provides a very high torque. A diamond wheel is extremely hard and may last 2 to 5 years depending on use. When choosing a dental model trimmer, be sure to choose a vendor that stands behind their product. This will be a well-used piece of equipment and buying it from a vendor offering a 5 or 10-year warranty can provide substantial piece of mind. The handpiece can take a prophy angle, with polishing cups, or a contra-angle, with various attachments, including RA burs and polishing cups. Only a few units have a water-cooling facility.
Long HP burs can also be used in the nose cone (when the prophy angle is removed). They are used principally for trimming small herbivore cheek teeth.
Relatively inexpensive, compared with an air driven unit.
Generally small, compact and mobile.
High-speed Hand Piece
The high-speed hand piece is capable of up to 400,000 rpm. It takes friction grip burs (FG) and has a water cooling facility for the bur. The water flow supplied to the hand piece can be varied or switched off completely.Features include a swing-open front housing for ease of cleaning and wheel changing, internal gutter to facilitate water runoff, full wheel radius water spray for efficient wheel cleaning, drain trough which completely surrounds the model tray to prevent water leakage, large 1" [2.5cm] diameter water exhaust, motor cover with removable top plastic utility tray. Lower torque feature for those who perform fewer model trimming operations. Shipped complete, ready for use with minor set-up. Finished with a durable, baked coating.
The micro motor handpiece provides low torque, which causes the bur to stall if pressed too hard onto the tooth (over 1-2 ounces of pressure).
The requirements laid down in national and international standards and draft standards provide helpful guidelines for optimum illumination. General room illumination with 500 lx and illumination of the working area with 1000 lx are best achieved with a larger number of fluorescent lamps on the ceiling above and in front of the dental chair. Daylight white lamps with good color rendering are a good combination with changing daylight and the color of light of the operating light. The color of external skin, mucous membrane and teeth appears natural. The eight surgical lights examined differ in quality.
It is used for the drilling of access points into teeth, for high speed sectioning of teeth during extraction and cutting or re-modelling of bone.

How Does the Dental Implant Motor Make Help To Teeth

What is a dental implant?
A dental implant is one kind of dental equipment for sale and an artificial tooth root that is surgically anchored into your jaw to hold a replacement tooth or bridge in place. The benefit of using implants is that they don't rely on neighboring teeth for support and they are permanent and stable. Implants are a good solution to tooth loss because they look and feel like natural teeth.
Can anyone receive dental implants?
Talk with your dentist about whether you are an implant candidate. You must be in good health and have the proper bone structure and healthy gums for the implant to stay in place. People who are unable to wear dentures may also be good candidates. If you suffer from chronic problems, such as clenching or bruxism, or systemic diseases, such as diabetes, the success rate for implants decreases dramatically. Additionally, people who smoke or drink alcohol may not be good candidates.
And among the dental equipment, the dental implant motor is one important part that is made from different types of metallic and bone-like ceramic materials that are compatible with body tissue. There are different types of dental implants: the first is placed directly into the jaw bone, like natural tooth roots; the second is used when the jaw structure is limited, therefore, a custom-made metal framework fits directly on the existing bone.

How do they work?
Strategically placed, implants can now be used to support permanently cemented bridges, eliminating the need for a denture. The cost tends to be greater, but the implants and bridges more closely resemble real teeth. The dentist must perform surgery to anchor the "artificial root" into or on your jaw bone. The procedure is done in the dental office with local anesthesia. The gum is then secured over the implant, which will remain covered until it fuses with the bone. The dentist then uncovers the implant and attaches an extension, or post, to the implant. With some implants, the implant and post are a single unit placed in the mouth during the initial surgery. Finally, the dentist makes an artificial tooth, or crown, that is attached to the implant post.

The Information about Dental Air Cleaning

The air in dental surgeries has a variety of microbiological particulates and aerosols generated from ultrasonic scaler and high-speed drills. They vary in size from 0.5 to 5 microns in diameter and can remain airborne for many hours.
Dentists and their staff can easily inhale the viruses and bacteria contained within the aerosols, with facemasks offering no protection against this fine particulate pollution. Capturing these microorganisms reduces the risk of cross-infection - for the patient, the dentist and the team.
Dental Surgeries use chemical disinfectants to decontaminate hands, surfaces and instruments. While eliminating viruses, germs and fungal spores, disinfectants often contain toxic agents such as aldehydes (formaldehyde and glutaraldehyde) or phenol. Continuous low-level exposure to aldehydes can have negative health effects, such as breathing difficulties, memory impairment, eye and skin irritation and irregular heartbeat. Toxic compounds such as isopropanol, ethanol and n-propanol can also cause irritation of the respiratory tract and the mucous membranes.
Mercury Vapours
Recent research studies have found that both dentists and their staff have a higher than average level of mercury in their body. Mercury is used in the amalgam for routine dental fillings. Mercury transforms from a solid to a gas at room temperature. The gas (which is the most easily absorbed type of mercury) can be inhaled when amalgam is placed in the mouth or removed. Mercury is highly toxic and humans should not be exposed to it.
With this news and patients becoming more health conscious, requests for amalgam removals by dental amalgamator are rising steadily. It is therefore now more important than ever, for dentists to protect themselves and their team from this harmful substance.
Dental Air Conditioning
It is now commonplace for dentists to have air-conditioning systems installed. These installation systems are, however, often a source of contamination themselves, either because they are equipped with less then adequate filtration or because they are drawing in polluted air from outside without filtering it sufficiently. Indoor air contamination can be many times greater than external conditions, and dental air cleaning is required.
Prompted by an ever growing number of dentist offices as customers, Commercial Air Filtration specifies the IQAir Dental Series which has been developed to provide a flexible, cost effective, silent and low maintenance air cleaning solution for dental practices.

How Does The Denture Injection System Works

As a lab owner, I am constantly looking at ways to improve the quality and service we give to the profession
When it comes to processing the dentures we as with most dental laboratories across the world use the conventional way of processing, namely, Flask and Pack and Press. Due to the growing private market, coupled with higher patient expectations, as a laboratory owner I was aware that although this time age system does work perfectly well in most instances, there were issues, i.e.: the risk of an open bite through over packing or not closing the flask adequately being one. I felt it was an issue we needed to address, to ensure the predictable results required.
Below I have listed a shortened version without all the small details of the process using the denture injection system.
The flasks have a cutaway shape into which a ‘plastic space maintainer’ is fitted, this will later be replaced with an ‘injection socket’. The base of the flask into which the waxed up denture is set, has a small hole that requires covering with wet tissue, this aids the deflasking process. Other than that the investing process for the denture is quit conventional. During investing, a wax sprue is attached that must not be more than 7mm in diameter, one to the posterior edge for upper dentures and one to each posterior border of lower dentures in a ‘Y’ shape. After applying a separator I use a silicon insulating material such as Flexistone Plus by Detax, to coverthe buccal surface of the denture up to the occlusal or incisal surface this produces a very clean and smooth surface which requires minimum finishing.

I was already aware that there were several advantages to be gained by using an injection system.
Greater accuracy of the fit surface.
Assured vertical dimension, due to the closed flask employed in the process.
Increase in the density of the dentist equipment for sale; this increase should also enhance them of the denture base. It was sometimes difficult to acquire all the technical information I needed to make the right decisions. Obviously all the manufacturers want to sell their system so they may not have been always open about all the Pro’s and the Con’s of their particular systems. All of the systems on the market that I looked at required the use of special flasks for investing stage, however most were quite straight forward using plaster in the convention way to create a two part mould. I slowly narrowed down my list of available systems and at this stage approached the one manufacturer whose system I thought looked most promising.

How To Choose A Good Dental Intraoral Camera

Intraoral cameras have incredible technological features.

With LED lighting, a head that rotates from 0 to 90 degrees, and powerful magnifying capabilities (some cameras can zoom in up to 100x), your dentist can examine your mouth in extreme detail. This means he or she can make diagnoses more accurately. The office can attach these photos to your health record to make tracking any changes simple.

Additionally, because the visuals from the intraoral camera appear on the monitor as they’re taken, your dentist can discuss your oral health with you while you both see the images or footage.

How To  Choose A Good Dental Intraoral Camera

Each feature that benefits the dentist also benefits the patient—maybe even more. Your dentist understands symptoms and conditions thoroughly, but it’s often difficult to explain precisely what is happening in a patient’s mouth using just a mouth mirror, which is small and hard to see, or an x-ray image, which takes time to print and doesn’t display images clearly.

When your dentist uses an intraoral camera during your examination, however, you’re seeing exactly what he or she sees right then. Dentists can display clear, colorful images, allowing them to point out any issues and discuss them with you immediately. You’ll certainly learn a lot about your mouth! And the later you will see and understand, it can be used with the dental handpiece,too.

Many offices will print or email images for their patients so you can refer to them at home look for changes yourself. Because these images are processed immediately, it saves you time.the more confident you can be when making treatment decisions.
