  • Forensic practitioners and anthropologists will be among those to benefit from new University of Kent research on the dental development of humans. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Etch
  • It was decided, after further research, that this type of composite could be used for most restorations provided the acid etch technique was used and a bonding agent was applied. (wikipedia.org)
  • bone
  • Approximately 65% of the patients with a combination of the 2 most negative bone-related factors (jawbone quality 4 and jaw shape D or E) experienced implant failure. (chalmers.se)
  • People lose a tooth from trauma, failure of dental restoration, or bone loss. (carnazzadental.com)
  • A dental implant (also known as an endosseous implant or fixture) is a surgical component that interfaces with the bone of the jaw or skull to support a dental prosthesis such as a crown, bridge, denture, facial prosthesis or to act as an orthodontic anchor. (wikipedia.org)
  • The integration of implant and bone can support physical loads for decades without failure. (wikipedia.org)
  • The goal of the sinus lift is to graft extra bone into the maxillary sinus, so more bone is available to support a dental implant. (wikipedia.org)
  • When restorations do not take these considerations into account and violate biologic width, three things tend to occur: chronic pain chronic inflammation of the gingiva unpredictable loss of alveolar bone In addition to crown lengthening to establish a proper biologic width, a 2 mm height of tooth structure should be available to allow for a ferrule effect. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the post is 16 mm long, but only extends 4 mm into root structure that is surrounded by solid bone, the restoration will have a poor prognosis. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore
  • Therefore, dental consultations, usually done regularly and by the same person, provide an ideal opportunity for cessation counselling. (biomedcentral.com)
  • If the tooth is to be restored with a full gold crown, the restoration need only be .5 mm in thickness (as gold is very strong), and therefore, a minimum of only .5 mm of space needs to be made for the crown to be placed. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mechanical
  • The risks and complications related to implant therapy divide into those that occur during surgery (such as excessive bleeding or nerve injury), those that occur in the first six months (such as infection and failure to osseointegrate) and those that occur long-term (such as peri-implantitis and mechanical failures). (wikipedia.org)
  • Denture
  • Another situation in which a crown is the restoration of choice is when a tooth is intended as an abutment tooth for a removable partial denture, but is initially unfavorable for such a task. (wikipedia.org)
  • A removable implant supported denture (also an implant supported overdenture) is a type of dental prosthesis which is not permanently fixed in place. (wikipedia.org)
  • When restoring an edentulous space with a fixed partial denture that will crown the teeth adjacent to the space and bridge the gap with a pontic, or "dummy tooth", the restoration is referred to as a bridge. (wikipedia.org)
  • dentists
  • Following the distribution of the post on Primary Failure of Tooth Eruption , a number of dentists inquired whether or not clinical cases, images and radiographs of similar cases could be shared. (cda-adc.ca)
  • We invite individuals and groups of general dentists, dental specialists, physicians and pharmacists, to join our project as authors, reviewers, and content and translation advisors. (cda-adc.ca)
  • Almost as soon as lasers were invented in the 1960s, curious dentists wondered if these powerful forms of light could be used on teeth, though those early lasers were much too crude for any useful dental work. (medicalxpress.com)
  • The data were collected from dentists (n = 73) and dental hygienists (n = 22) in 36 dental clinics in Finland using a web-based survey. (biomedcentral.com)
