  • Forensic Examination Of Forensic Dentistry

    1023 Words  | 5 Pages

    INTRODUCTION Forensic dentistry, more commonly acknowledged as forensic odontology is defined as that branch of forensic medicine which in the interest of justice deals with the proper handling and examination of dental evidence and with the proper evaluation and presentation of the dental findings (Keiser-Neilson, 1970). The main aspects of forensic dentistry are identification; age, sex and race of an individual in various civil and criminal cases like mass disasters, domestic violence, abuse and

  • Silver Fluoride

    814 Words  | 4 Pages

    I first heard about silver diamine fluoride (SDF) about a year ago from a parent of a patient who had just moved to the area and joined our practice. Their youngest daughter who was 18 months of age was diagnosed with decay on the interproximal areas of the maxillary incisors. The decay was large enough that the doctor was recommending for the to be treated. Due to the patients, young age and uncooperative behavior the doctor recommended general anesthesia to have the treatment completed. They were

  • Effectiveness Of A Patient Applied 10 % Potassium Nitrate

    1890 Words  | 8 Pages

    Reinhart, T. C., Killoy, W. J., Love, J., Overman, P. R., & Sakumura, J. S. (1990) This study aimed to evaluate the effectiveness of a patient-applied 10% potassium nitrate glycerine-based gel in decreasing dentinal sensitivity on teeth with exposed dentin apical to the cementoenamel junction. The patients were divided into 3 treatment groups: group 1 was treated with a glycerine-based-10% potassium nitrate gel; group 2 was treated with a glycerine gel without potassium nitrate; and group 3 received

  • An Ideal Desensitizing Agent As A Agent

    2270 Words  | 10 Pages

    Gluma desensitizer : In 1935, Grossman addressed the requirements for an ideal desensitizing agent as: rapidly acting with long-term effects, non-irritating to the pulp, painless and easy to apply without staining the tooth surface. There are many dentin sensitising agents available which includes oxalates products, calcium phosphate desensitizers; 5% NaF varnish; Glutaraldehyde-HEMA; Gluma,HEMA + other products, NaF; SnF2; light-cured adhesives; glass-ionomer cements; desensitizing dentifrices; potassium

  • Essay about Root Surface Caries

    1290 Words  | 6 Pages

    at risk for root surface caries. Dentists use several methods of treatment. Root surface caries are also called cemental caries, cervical caries, or radicular caries. (Wilkins) Root surface caries only involves the roots of teeth. The cementum and dentin located just below the crown of the tooth is involved. No involvement of enamel is seen with root surface caries.

  • Discussion Of Biodentine And The Aspects Of Dentinal Pressures

    759 Words  | 4 Pages

    Discussion: When materials’ influences are to be evaluated in terms of pulpal response during vital procedures, in vivo study designs are helpful. Among these,animal and human teeth are generally preferred to demonstrate the effects of pulp capping agents. These should further be supported by clinical trials toestablish a clear picture regarding the general characteristics of the materials. MTA, which is generally considered a gold standard, has been investigated in various animal and human experimental

  • Demineralization Of Dentin Dentistry

    945 Words  | 4 Pages

    researched was Ana Bedran-Russo. Mrs. Russo conducted a study which focused on the application of restorative materials in damaged teeth. Demineralization of dentin during dental caries is of considerable clinical interest which was what this research could help determine. In the study, they tested if peptides derived from DMP1 can be used for dentin demineralization. Peptide pA (pA, MW = 1.726 kDa) and peptide pB (pB, MW = 2.185), containing common collagen-binding domains and unique calcium-binding

  • Advantages And Consequences Of Complate Consites

    935 Words  | 4 Pages

    neglected to mention the possibility of treating these diagnosable injuries, Saito et al used demineralization at 0.1 M EDTA pH 7.4 at 4 °C to suggest Collagen/DPP composites as a therapy method which reverses the process of erosion by inducing natural dentin regeneration. In particular, Saito et al developed this suggestion through first preparing DPP cross-linked to type I Atelocollagen Fibrils by extracting DPP through calcium precipitation and anion exchange chromatography purification in solutions

  • Dentinogenesis Imperfecta Research Paper

    1985 Words  | 8 Pages

    Nathan Gillespie Dr. Craig BIO - 310 Genetics Fall 16’ Dentinogenesis Imperfecta Dentin is the bone-like connective tissue of the middle layer of a tooth that is found to play an important role in the structure and integrity of teeth. Dentinogenesis is the process of forming dentin during tooth development. The cells responsible for this process are called odontoblast. These odontoblast cells are differentiated ectomesenchymal cells at the basal membrane of the inner enamel epithelium. These

    cap that is over the tooth. Then there is the dentin and that “makes up the majority of the inner surface of the tooth.” (Overman, Vickie) The pulp is the place that holds the nerves and blood vessels to the inside of the tooth. Lastly, the cementum makes most of the outer surface of the root, but this is softer than the enamel. The bulk of the tooth consists of dentin. Dentin is a substance that is kind of like bone but it is harder. Covering the dentin is a tough durable layer named the enamel. “Enamel
