A pilot study in the recovery and recognition of non-osseointegrated dental implants following cremation. (2/2)

Minimal dimensional changes in free standing dental implants when incinerated in a kiln to a temperature of 1125 degrees C have been reported previously. However, in the same study colour changes were observed between commercially pure titanium and titanium alloy type of implants, with speculation that this change may be a useful distinguishing tool in cases requiring forensic identification. The present study was instigated to determine what changes occur following cremation to bone-supported dental implants placed within mandibles of sheep. A selection of dental implants was photographed and radiographed. They were then surgically placed in sheep mandibles and the entire sheep heads cremated in a commercial cremator. There was detachment of the dental implants from the mandible, which could have implications for scene recovery. Following retrieval and re-irradiating of the implants, image subtraction evaluation of the radiographs was recorded using Adobe((R)) Photoshop.((R)) As with the previous study there was slight oxidation of the implant surfaces leading to minor alteration of the images. There was, however, no gold crust colour change in the commercially pure titanium. Photography within the retrieved implants revealed the batch number within the Straumann implant was still visible, which could significantly add weight to the identification of deceased persons.  (+info)

Cremation is a method of disposing of a deceased person's remains by incinerating the body at high temperatures, typically in a specially designed furnace called a crematorium. The process reduces the body to its basic components, which are then pulverized into a fine, grayish-white powder known as cremated remains or cremains.

Cremation is an alternative to traditional burial and is chosen for various reasons, including cultural or religious beliefs, personal preferences, environmental concerns, or cost considerations. It's important to note that cremation does not replace the need for a funeral or memorial service, which can still be held to honor the deceased person's life and memory.

It's also worth noting that there are regulations around cremation, such as identifying the body before cremation, obtaining consent from the next of kin, and ensuring that the cremated remains are returned to the appropriate party after the process is complete.

Mortuary practice, also known as mortuary science or funeral service, is a field that deals with the handling, preparation, and disposal of dead human bodies. This can include tasks such as:

1. The removal and transportation of the body from the place of death to the mortuary.
2. The cleaning and sanitization of the body.
3. The reconstruction of the body, if necessary, to make it presentable for viewing.
4. The application of cosmetics to restore a natural appearance to the deceased.
5. The dressing and casketing of the body.
6. The coordination of funeral services, such as memorial services or viewings.
7. The completion of necessary paperwork, such as death certificates and burial permits.

Mortuary practitioners may work in a variety of settings, including hospitals, funeral homes, and coroner's offices. They must have a strong understanding of anatomy, physiology, and infection control, as well as excellent communication and interpersonal skills to provide support and guidance to grieving families.

It is important to note that mortuary practices can vary depending on cultural, religious, and personal beliefs, so practitioners must be respectful and sensitive to the needs and wishes of each family they serve.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "Funeral Rites" is not a term that has a specific medical definition. Funeral rites generally refer to the customs, practices, and rituals associated with paying respects to the dead and disposing of their remains in a culturally or religiously significant manner. These practices can vary widely between different cultures, societies, and religious groups. If you have any questions related to medical terminology or health-related topics, I'd be happy to try to help answer those for you!
