Comparison of cephalometric analysis using a non-radiographic sonic digitizer (DigiGraph Workstation) with conventional radiography. (1/153)

Cephalometric analysis conventionally requires radiographic exposure which may not be compatible with the growing concern over radiation hazards. Recently, the Dolphin Workstation Imaging System introduced to the dental profession a non-radiographic system, called the DigiGraph Workstation which may be an alternative to cephalometric radiography. The aims of this study were to compare the validity and reproducibility of cephalometric measurements obtained from the DigiGraph Workstation with conventional cephalometric radiographs. The sample consisted of 30 human dry skulls. Two replicated sets of lateral cephalograms were obtained with steel ball markers placed at the majority of the cephalometric landmarks. Duplicate tracings prepared from each radiograph were digitized to obtain cephalometric measurements using the computer software, Dentofacial Planner. For the DigiGraph Workstation, double sonic digitizations were repeated twice for each skull, on two occasions. Fifteen angular and one linear measurements were obtained from both methods and these findings compared using ANOVA, paired t-tests and F-tests. All, except one, cephalometric measurement showed significant differences between the two methods (P < 0.0001). The DigiGraph Workstation consistently produced higher values in 11 measurements (mean differences +0.5 to +15.7 degrees or mm) and lower values in four measurements (mean differences -0.2 to -3.5 degrees). The standard deviations of the differences between readings of both methods were large (0.4-5.8 degrees or mm). The reproducibility of the DigiGraph Workstation measurements was lower than that of the radiographic measurements. The method error of the DigiGraph Workstation ranged from 7 to 70 per cent, while that of radiographic tracings was less than 2 per cent. It was concluded that measurements obtained with the DigiGraph Workstation should be interpreted with caution.  (+info)

A medico-legal review of some current UK guidelines in orthodontics: a personal view. (2/153)

This article is a critical analysis from a medico-legal perspective of some current authoritative UK clinical guidelines in orthodontics. Two clinical guidelines have been produced by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and four by the British Orthodontic Society. Each guideline is published with the analysis immediately following it. Following recent UK case law (Bolitho v City & Hackney Health Authority, 1997) which allows the courts to choose between two bodies of responsible expert medical opinion where they feel one opinion is not 'logical', it is likely that the UK courts will increasingly turn to authoritative clinical guidelines to assist them in judging whether or not an appropriate standard of care has been achieved in medical negligence cases. It is thus important for clinicians to be aware of the recommendations of such guidelines, and if these are not followed the reasons should be discussed with the patient and recorded in the clinical case notes. This article attempts to highlight aspects of the guidelines that have medico-legal implications.  (+info)

Supernumerary teeth--an overview of classification, diagnosis and management. (3/153)

Most supernumerary teeth are located in the anterior maxillary region. They are classified according to their form and location. Their presence may give rise to a variety of clinical problems. Detection of supernumerary teeth is best achieved by thorough clinical and radiographic examination. Their management should form part of a comprehensive treatment plan. This article presents an overview of the clinical problems associated with supernumerary teeth and includes a discussion of the classification, diagnosis and management of this difficult clinical entity.  (+info)

Lower lip numbness due to peri-radicular dental infection. (4/153)

Lower lip numbness has always been a sinister symptom. Much has been written about it being the sole symptom of pathological lesions and metastatic tumours in the mandible. It may also be a symptom of manifestations of certain systemic disorders. A case of lower lip numbness resulting from the compression of the mental nerve by a peri-radicular abscess is presented because of the unusual nature of this spread of infection.  (+info)

A survey of the delegation of orthodontic tasks and the training of chairside support staff in 22 European countries. (6/153)

This paper reports on a survey which was undertaken to investigate the delegation of orthodontic tasks and the training of chairside support staff in Europe. Two questionnaires were posted to all members of the EURO-QUAL BIOMED II project together with an explanatory letter. The first dealt with the delegation of nine clinical tasks during orthodontic treatment. The second with the types of chairside assistant employed in each country and the training that they are given. Completed questionnaires, which were subsequently validated, were returned by orthodontists from 22 countries. They indicated that there was no delegation of clinical tasks in six of the 22 countries and delegation of all nine tasks in five countries. The most commonly delegated tasks were taking radiographs (in 14 of the 22 countries) and taking impressions (in 13 of the 22 countries). The least commonly delegated tasks were cementing bands (in five of the 22 countries) and trying on bands (in six of the 22 countries). Seven of the 22 countries provided chairside assistants with training in some clinical orthodontic tasks. Eighteen of the 22 countries provided general training for chairside assistants and offered a qualification for chairside assistants. Four of these 18 countries reported that they only employed qualified chairside assistants. Of the four countries which reported that they did not provide a qualification for chairside assistants, two indicated that they employed chairside assistants with no formal training and two that they did not employ chairside assistants. It was concluded that there were wide variations within Europe as far as the training and employment of chairside assistants, with or without formal qualifications, and in the delegation of clinical orthodontic tasks to auxiliaries was concerned.  (+info)

Diagnosis of occlusal caries: Part I. Conventional methods. (7/153)

Accurate diagnosis of the presence or absence of disease is a fundamental requirement in health care. The diagnosis of non-overt occlusal decay is challenging and can be highly subjective, and its inherent uncertainties can lead to widely differing treatment decisions. The development of more sensitive, specific and reproducible diagnostic tools for occlusal surfaces would contribute greatly to more precise planning of preventive and operative therapy. The purpose of this 2-part paper is to review current knowledge concerning conventional and new diagnostic methods for occlusal caries. Part I looks at established diagnostic methods for occlusal surfaces. Conventional visual, tactile and radiographic examinations provide less-than-ideal diagnostic sensitivity. Neither fissure discolouration (black or brown) nor the use of an explorer has been shown to improve diagnostic accuracy. However, the combination of careful visual examination with optimal radiographic examination affords better diagnostic performance. The best visual indicators involve precise features associated with the presence of disease, such as opaque fissure demineralization and the presence and extent of localized breakdown of the enamel. For best results, teeth should be clean, thoroughly dry and well illuminated. Part II will examine new and emerging technologies, including the DIAGNOdent laser fluorescence device, which are being developed for the diagnosis of occlusal decay.  (+info)

Potential risk for lead exposure in dental offices. (8/153)

In December 2000, the Washington State Health Department discovered white powder that was found to be lead oxide in boxes used to store dental intraoral radiograph film. The Washington State Health Department alerted state health departments throughout the United States. Subsequently, the Wisconsin Division of Public Health (WDPH) conducted an investigation of dental offices in the state. This report summarizes the investigation, which indicated that similar storage boxes are used in Wisconsin. The findings indicate that patients are at risk for exposure to a substantial amount of lead during a dental radiograph procedure if the office stores dental film in these boxes.  (+info)

July 9, 2012 -- There may be some association between dental x-rays and certain types of cancer, according to a review by the Canadian Agency for Drugs and Technologies in Health (CADTH; Journal of the Canadian Dental Association, 2012; 78:c79).. Based on data from eight case-control studies that assessed the association between exposure frequency to dental x-rays and brain tumors (five reports), thyroid cancer (one report), breast cancer (one report), or pediatric cancer of connective tissues (one report), the CADTH review presents some evidence that dental x-rays may increase the risk for cancer, the agency noted.. There is some evidence of an association between exposure to dental x-rays and meningioma, and thyroid cancer or breast cancer, when shielding with a lead apron is not used, the CADTH wrote. An association between pediatric rhabdomyosarcoma and maternal exposure to x-rays was also detected. No association between gliomas or acoustic neuromas and dental x-rays were ...
Dr. Dale A. Miles, adjunct professor at the University of Texas, and professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Radiology at the Arizona School of Dentistry, addressed the issue of dental X-rays.. Dr. Miles asked the questions, are dental X-rays safe? Dr. Miles has determined after many years of research and study, the individualized radiographic exposure of radiation that we are exposed to from dental X-rays is very small compared to our daily exposure from things like, cosmic radiation and naturally-occurring radioactive elements (for example, those producing radon).. The table below compares our estimated exposure to radiation from dental X-ray with other various sources. As indicated below, a millisievert (µSv) is a unit of measure that allows for some comparison between radiation sources that expose the entire body (such as natural background radiation) and those that only expose a portion of the body (such as X-rays).. Annual estimated average effective dose of equivalent received by a member of ...

Activist Post. How often does your dentist insist on you giving you a dental X-ray just to make sure all is well? While a dental x-ray may be justifiable if there is some serious risk, research is pointing out that too many of these X-rays may result in a twofold risk increase in a brain cancer known as meningioma.. For the research, Elizabeth B. Claus, MD, PhD, of Yale University, and colleagues examined the records of 1,433 patients who were diagnosed with meningioma between May 2006 and April 2011. The researchers made a control group matched for sex, age, and geography.. Researchers found that bitewing X-rays (showing upper and lower back teeth) performed less than once per year was associated with patients being 1.1 to 1.6 times more likely to experience meningioma across age groups.. They also found that annual or more frequent panorex dental X-ray (an X-ray showing all teeth and surrounding bones) exposure increased odds by 2.7 to 3.0 in 3 of the oldest age groups, while x-rays performed ...
Frequent dental X-rays may significantly increase the risk of non-malignant brain tumours, a new study suggests.. Over a lifetime, having dental X-rays can double or triple the chances of developing meningioma tumours.. However, the likelihood of developing a brain tumour at all is very small.. Meningiomas, which account for about one in five primary brain tumours, affect two or three in every 100,000 people in the UK each year.. The tumours are slow growing, often causing no symptoms, and usually benign.. Researchers found that patients in their study who had meningioma, the brain tumour most commonly diagnosed in the United States, reported having more frequent dental X-rays compared to those in a control group who had never been diagnosed with the disease.. The scientists analysed data from 1,433 patients with meningioma, who were between 20 and 70 years of age and lived in Connecticut, Massachusetts, North Carolina, the San Francisco Bay area and in eight Houston counties.. Data from these ...
By Andrew M. SeamanNEW YORK (Reuters Health) - A new study suggests people who had certain kinds of dental X-rays in the past may be at an increased risk for meningioma, the most commonly diagnosed brain tumor in the U.S.The findings cannot prove that radiation from the imaging caused the tumors, and the results are based on people who were likely exposed to higher levels of radiation during dental X-rays than most are today.Its likely that the exposure association were seeing here is past exposure, and past exposure levels were much higher, said Dr. Elizabeth Claus, the studys lead author and a professor at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, Connecticut.Claus and her colleagues write in the journal Cancer that dental X-rays are the most common source of exposure to ionizing radiation -- which has been linked to meningiomas in the past -- but most research on the connection is based on people who were exposed to atomic bombs or received radiation therapy.There have been some studies that
What is a Dental X-Ray? The term x-ray is actually referring to the radiation that is used to make the image on the film. The radiograph or picture on the film is the resultant picture that we see. A radiograph is an extremely important diagnostic tool. These pictures show us many things that are not visible…

If you search on the Internet for health risks as a result of radiation of X-rays, particularly dental X-rays since thats the most common source of X-rays were exposed to, youll find hundreds of articles. The most trustworthy ones are from well-respected web sites, such as Annual X-rays May Expose Patients to Unnecessary Risk on WebMD, New Dental X-ray Guidelines Spell Out Radiation Reduction on Medscape. Many articles including these two mention the 2012 study Dental x-rays and risk of meningioma that links brain tumor to frequent dental X-rays. On the other hand, dentists and some articles argue that dental radiation is insignificant compared to background radiation. According to Wikipedia, A dental x-ray delivers a dose of 5 to 10 µSv (or 0.005 to 0.01 mSv). The average American receives about 3 mSv of diagnostic medical dose per year (including chest, dental and other types of medical X-rays), while Average annual human exposure to ionizing radiation for an American is 3.10 mSv, ...
How x-rays are used. X-ray images, also called dental radiographs, are among the most valuable tools a dentist has for keeping your mouth and teeth healthy. The digital x-ray uses an electronic sensor (not x-ray film) that captures and stores the digital image of the teeth on a computer. The image can be instantly viewed and enlarged thus helping the dentist and dental hygienist detect problems or issues quicker and easier than on x-ray film. Digital x-rays also reduce radiation 80-90% compared to the already low exposure of traditional dental x-rays.. How often should dental x-rays be taken?. The need for dental x-rays depends on each patients dental health needs. Dr.McChristian will recommend necessary x-rays based on the review of your medical and dental history, dental exam, signs and symptoms, age consideration, and risk for disease.. A full mouth series of dental x-rays is recommended for new patients and is usually good for three to five years. Bite-wing x-rays (x-rays of top and bottom ...

X-Rays help prevent hidden problems or complications from getting worse by treating them as early as possible.. ...
Our everyday environment exposes us to natural radiation all the time. Dental x-rays from a full- mouth series emits the same level of radiation that a person receives on a daily basis from natural sources. The low-level of radiation emitted by dental x-rays is considered safe, but we still take precautions to minimize how much exposure our patients receive. Using lead apron shields to cover the patients bodies enable us to keep our patients radiation exposure at the lowest level possible. In addition, our state-of-the-art digital x-rays reduce exposure by up to 90 percent when compared to traditional film methods. How often should de. How often should dental x-rays be taken?. Based on your medical and dental history, as well as your age, risk for disease and current signs/symptoms, your dentist and hygienist will be able to recommend the best time frame for dental x-rays.

Preventative Dentistry is the ultimate goal that we set for each of our patients. Proper oral hygiene is done daily at home. We educate our patients with proper nutrition, dietary counseling, and proper techniques while brushing and flossing. This education, coupled with our periodic checkups and professional cleanings, gives each patient a good, overall bill of dental health. In order for patients to receive this education, we will provide a dental exam. During the dental exam, our hygienist will complete your cleaning and dental x-rays. The dental x-rays will help in the complete diagnosis of your mouth and provide us a plan to help reach your dental needs. If bone loss and hardened plaque are seen on the x-ray underneath the gum, a more thorough cleaning is often needed. This type of cleaning is called scaling and root planing, which detoxifies the tooth surfaces below the gum line and flushes the bacteria out of the area. This entire process from start to finish gives each patient the ...

Ahwatukee Animal Care Hospital 10855 South 48th Street Phoenix AZ 85044 Your cat should be visiting your veterinarian once a year, at minimum, for a wellness examination, dental examination, as well as teeth cleaning and polishing to remove tartar and invisible plaque from all tooth surfaces. For proper dental care, your cat must be placed under general anesthesia. Your veterinarian will examine your pet for underlying health conditions and perform pre-anesthetic blood tests prior to your cats professional dental cleaning in order to ensure that your cats kidney and liver functions are satisfactory for anesthesia. Sometimes, antibiotic treatment is prescribed in advance. Once your cat is closely monitored under general anesthesia, your veterinarian and veterinary technicians will more thoroughly examine the mouth, noting abnormalities in the medical record. Dental x-rays will be examined and a dental probe will be used to evaluate gum bleeding and periodontal pockets, where food can accumulate. Next

X-rays are an important diagnostic tool in dentistry because of their ability to penetrate and pass through body tissues. Because they penetrate at different speeds depending on tissue density (shorter and thus darker on exposed film for soft tissues, longer and lighter for hard tissues like bone or teeth), were able to detect decay which appear as dark areas on x-ray film.. Without x-rays, the early detection and diagnosis of dental problems would be quite difficult. But despite its obvious benefits, its still a form of released energy that exposes patients to a certain amount of radiation. Since the potential health risk from radiation depends on the amount released (the dosage) and for how long and often a person is exposed, we must determine if the dosage and frequency from dental x-rays is a cause for concern.. Its a common misconception to view any radiation exposure as dangerous. The truth is, however, were all exposed daily to radiation from the natural environment - about 2 to 4.5 ...

Note the group of workers studied was a while ago (1970s I believe) and it looked at the overall health after the exposure for long term effects. They have received much more than normal amounts (back in those days you could get a lot more than 5 rem per year) of radiation as their badges would indicate so missing dental x-rays would not be an issue as they would not contribute much at all. According to the study, they were just normal dock workers without additional education. The only distinguishing feature found in the study was the handling of waste ...

1. Breastfeeding mothers cannot breastfeed if they have had X-rays. Not true! Regular X-rays such as a chest X-ray or dental X-rays do not affect the milk or the baby and the mother may breastfeed without concern.Mammograms are harder to read when the mother is lactating, but can be done and the mother should not stop breastfeeding just to get this done. Furthermore, there are other ways of investigating a breast lump. Newer imaging methods such as CT scan and MRI scans are of no concern, even if contrast is used. And special X-rays using contrast media? As long as no radioactive isotope is used there is no concern and the mother should not stop even for one feed. Herein are included studies such as intravenous pyelogram, lymphangiogram, venogram, arteriogram, myelogram, etc. What about studies using radioactive nucleotides (bone scans, lung scans, etc.)? The baby will get a little radioactive nucleotide. However, as we often do these very same tests on children, even small babies, and the ...

Root resorptions are assessed and diagnosed using different radiographical techniques. A comparison of the ability to assess resorptions on two-dimensional (2D) and three-dimensional (3D) radiographs is, hitherto, lacking. The aims of this study were to evaluate the accuracy of 2D (periapical radiographs, PA and panoramic radiograph, PAN) and 3D (cone beam computed tomography, CBCT) radiographic techniques in measuring slanted root resorptions compared to the true resorptions, a histological gold standard, in addition to a comparison of all the radiographic techniques to each other. Radiographs (CBCT, PA, and PAN), in addition to histological sections, of extracted deciduous canines from thirty-four patients were analyzed. Linear measurements of the most and least resorbed side of the root, i.e.,

Dental cone beam CT emits less radiation and provides a more complete picture than CT and CAT scans. Hospital CTs work by taking a series of parallel X-ray images of the head, from top to bottom. That leaves gaps between each image, which have to be filled by the computers educated guesses, and that many X-rays come with a lot of radiation.. A cone beam CT circles the head, which overlaps each image or slice, leaving no gaps. The radiation is also much weaker. The most radiation hits the the area of interest, which is where the images overlap to construct the 3D model. This is how CBCT is able to provide a more complete image with less radiation exposure. ...
