Product Description:We brush our teeth every day, but are you really sure your teeth have cleaned? The traditional toothbrush is manual to clean our teeth that may not clean them thoroughly. And this could be a big threat to our oral hygiene. Oclean Air S
With the advent of new adhesive materials and ease of their application, the demand for non-metal dental restorations has grown considerably in class V cavities. The various factors that significantly influence the success rate of class V restoration include tooth location, stressful occlusion, and type of restorative material, marginal adaptation and the age of the patient.Sonic and ultrasonic scaling have become the most widely used methods among dental surgeons, and oral hygienist, due to the decreased time requirement and ease of application in comparison with hand instrumentation. This ex vivo study was conducted to measure the surface roughness on tooth colored class V restorative materials before and after ultrasonic scaling using a surface roughness tester.
Piezoelectric device or piezosurgery device was originally developed for the atraumatic cutting of bone by way of ultrasonic vibrations and as an alternative to the mechanical and electrical instruments that are used in conventional oral surgery. Over the last two decades, an increasing amount of literature has shown that piezoelectric devices are innovative tools and that there is extensive indication for their use in dental implantology and oral and maxillofacial surgery. Recent publications have also shown the benefits of their use in craniofacial surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, head and neck surgery, neurosurgery, ophthalmology, traumatology, and orthopaedics. Key features of piezosurgery include the selective cutting of bone without damaging the adjacent soft tissue (e.g. vessels, nerves or mucosa), providing a clear visibility in the operating field, and cutting with micron sensitivity without the generation of heat. The cutting characteristics of piezosurgery are mainly depending upon the degree of bone mineralisation, the design of the insert being used, the pressure being applied on the handpiece and the speed of movement during usage. Therefore, a novice user
Dental surgical techniques have developed rapidly over the last two decades. In all these, one new surgical technique based on the very novel application of the principle of piezoelectric ultrasonic vibration is introduced with wide range of applications in dentistry and periodontics.Piezosurgery is a relatively new surgical technique for periodontology and implantology that can be used to complement traditional oral surgical procedures, and in some cases, replace traditional procedures
Plaque is the soft, tenacious material found on tooth surfaces which is not readily removed by rinsing with water. Complete removal of bacterial plaque is the most effective method of preventing gingivitis and periodontitis. The conventional methods of controlling periodontal disease involve mechanical and chemical removal of plaque and calculus. Biological plaque control is an interesting new field of periodontology research aimed at the elimination of pathogenic bacteria in dental plaque. Recent advances has been done in both mechanical and chemical plaque control like ultrasonic toothbrush, ionic toothbrushes, ultraviolet sterilized toothbrush system and by using nanotechnology
Traditionally, endodontic surgery was considered a procedure of last resort, filled with negative connotations because of lack of experience and understanding of the merits of the procedure. It is based on past experience with accompanying unsuitable surgical instruments, non-biocompatible materials, inadequate vision, frequent postoperative complications, and failures that often resulted in extraction of the tooth. As a result, the surgical approach to endodontic therapy, or surgical endodontics, was taught with minimum enthusiasm at dental schools and was practiced by very few in private practices. Stated simply, endodontic surgery was not considered to be important within the endodontist's domain. Fortunately, this changed when the microscope, micro-instruments, ultrasonic tips, and more biologically acceptable root-end filling materials were introduced in the last decade. The concurrent development of better techniques has resulted in greater understanding of the apical anatomy, greater treatment success and a more favorable patient response. These developments marked the beginning of the endodontic microsurgery era that began in the 1990s.
Nonsurgical periodontal therapy is directed toward removal of the microbial biofilm from the root surfaces of periodontally diseased teeth. Conceptually, the aim of this treatment approach is to eliminate both living bacteria in the microbial biofilm and calcified biofilm microorganisms, i.e. dental calculus,from the root surface and from the subgingival area without the surgical reflection of the soft tissues surrounding the teeth. From a practical point of view the result of this treatment is a more or less complete removal of the calcified accretions covering the root surfaces, a reduction of the number of biofilm microorganisms, and a disturbance of the ecology of the microbial biofilm. Mechanical nonsurgical periodontal therapy in this review includes all nonsurgical treatment modalities that are performed with the use of hand instruments, sonic or ultrasonic instruments, motordriven instruments, or any combination of these instruments.
