Dental programs for caries prevention

Minimal intervention is a key phrase in today's dental practice. Minimal intervention dentistry (MID) focuses on the least invasive treatment options possible in order to minimize tissue loss and patient discomfort. Concentrating mainly on prevention and early intervention of caries, MID's first basic principle is the remineralization of early carious lesions, advocating a biological or therapeutic approach rather than traditional surgical approach for early surface lesions. One of the key elements of a biological approach is the usage and application of remineralizing agents to tooth structure (enamel and dentin lesions). These agents are part of a new era of dentistry aimed at controlling the demineralization remineralization cycle, depending upon the microenvironment around the tooth (Rao & Malhotra, 2011). high risk groups compared with out-reaching group programs. Thus, group programs are instrumental in providing effective and efficient caries-preventive measures in children....

Frequency and location of diagnosed secondary caries

1999b Forss and Widstrom E, 2004 Mjor, 1997 Mjor and Jokstadt, 1993 . Some published researches showed that compared to amalgam restorations, resin-based composite restorations represented a higher percentage of replacement because of the diagnosed secondary caries Mjor and Jokstadt, 1993 Bernardo et al., 2007 . On the contrary, others reported that the amalgam was replaced because of the secondary caries more often than composite resin Wilson et al., 1997 Burke et al., 1999a . Compared with those studies, which acclaimed that a large proportion of restorations replaced as a result of diagnosis of secondary caries in general dental practice, one controlled clinical trials showed secondary caries represented in less than 1 percent of the restoration failures Letzel et al., 1989 , inversely, another controlled clinical trials by Bernardo et al. reported that secondary caries accounted for 66.7 percent and 87.6 percent of the failures that occurred in amalgam and composite restorations,...

Conclusions of the diagnostic tests

Modern dental practice needs diagnostic methods to diagnose caries in the early stages of the disease, and research efforts must focus on satisfying this need. The traditional diagnostic techniques offer high specificity, but with the possibility of false-negative results due to dentin caries. Laser fluorescence (LF) shows high sensitivity, and is able to identify hidden dentin caries in situations where visual inspection (VI) and X-rays are unable to detect the lesions. However, because of its lesser specificity and the low current prevalence of caries in the industrialized world, LF should be used as a coadjutant to VI in diagnosing hidden dentin caries. It has been estimated that an additional 30-50 of non-cavitated occlusal caries can be detected in the early stages with LF. Bitewing X-rays represent a complement to VI, but is only able to detect the lesion once it has advanced in the dentinal tissue. As a result, different studies (Anttonen et al., 2003 Ricketts et al., 1997)...

Digital Xrays RxD

The application of digital X-rays (RxD) has gradually increased in dental practice, and the number of professionals who incorporate this technology to their personal practices is on the rise. RxD offer a number of advantages the image is obtained immediately, with no need for development the patient is exposed to a lesser radiation dose and the images are examined using software that moreover allows them to be filed in electronic format, offering different forms of presentation and image measurements (Fig. 5).

Bells palsy

This is a disorder of the seventh cranial nerve (facial nerve) that results in paralysis on one side of the face. The disorder usually comes on suddenly and is commonly caused by inflammation around the facial nerve as it travels from the brain to the exterior. It may be caused by pressure on the nerve due to tumours, injury to the nerve, infection of the meninges or inner ear or dental surgery. Diabetes, pregnancy and hypertension are other causes.
