• gums
  • However, the American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA) stated in 1998 that there is no evidence that scaling and polishing only above the gums provides therapeutic value, and cleaning should be done under the gums as well. (wikipedia.org)
  • If plaque is left on a subgingival (under the gum) surface undisturbed, not only is there an increased risk of tooth decay, but it will also go on to irritate the gums and make them appear red and swollen Some bleeding may be noticed during tooth brushing or flossing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Bleeding on probing which is also known as bleeding gums or gingival bleeding is a term used by dentists and dental hygienists when referring to bleeding that is induced by gentle manipulation of the tissue at the depth of the gingival sulcus, or interface between the gingiva and a tooth.

  • When the gingiva are swollen, the epithelial lining of the gingival crevice becomes ulcerated and the gums will bleed more easily with even gentle brushing, and especially when flossing. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because of the proximity of this area to the gum tissue, the bacterial plaque begin to irritate and infect the gums. (wikipedia.org)
  • restorations
  • Polishing temporary restorations in the dental lab gives excellent surface quality but is time consuming and has the risk of cross contamination due to contaminated pumice. (quintessenz.de)
  • Aim of this study was to describe the surface qualities of four different resin materials for fabrication of fixed provisional restorations after chairside polish with four recently developed polishing devices and to compare the results with the surface qualities which can be achieved by polishing in the dental lab. (quintessenz.de)
  • Background: The success and maintenance of indirect dental restorations is closely related to the marginal accuracy, which is affected by many factors like preparation design, using of different fabrication techniques, and the time of taking final impression and pouring it. (jcodental-uobaghdad-edu.org)
  • Plaque is a soft yellow-grayish substance that adheres to the tooth surfaces including removable and fixed restorations. (wikipedia.org)
  • periodontium
  • The comprehensive periodontal exam consists of a visual exam, a series of radiographs, probing of the gingiva, determining the extent of current or past damage to the periodontium and a comprehensive review of the medical and dental histories. (wikipedia.org)
  • efficacy
  • presence or absence of furcation involvement that promotes plaque retention in areas that are very difficult for the owner or dog to clean on a frequent basis), and the efficacy of long-term plaque retardation. (italiangreyhound.org)
  • Hygiene
  • It is important that oral hygiene be carried out on a regular basis to enable prevention of dental disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • Between cleanings by a dental hygienist, good oral hygiene is essential for preventing tartar build-up which causes the problems mentioned above. (wikipedia.org)
  • The periodontal curette is a type of hand-activated instrument used in dentistry and dental hygiene for the purpose of scaling and root planing. (wikipedia.org)
  • suggests
  • A lesion that appears dark brown and shiny suggests dental caries were once present but the demineralization process has stopped, leaving a stain. (wikipedia.org)
  • oral
  • Once this is indexed on an oral technology spread sheet, the rest is quite simple. (veterinarypracticenews.com)
  • Dental radiology is the key diagnostic tool in oral care-all oral diagnostics begin with a dental X-ray. (veterinarypracticenews.com)
  • I have told many practitioners that if you gave me a dental X-ray unit at a feline-only practice I would stay busy for 12 hours each day in diagnostics and oral treatment. (veterinarypracticenews.com)
  • In 2008, making no attempt to address these common problems in general oral conditions, through treatment without dental X-ray diagnostics, could be labeled negligence in care. (veterinarypracticenews.com)
  • Commit yourself to quality dental X-rays, consult clients and have a radiologist or specialist in oral care interpret the films. (veterinarypracticenews.com)
  • Aims: The purpose of this study was to determine the differences in oral self-care levels between one hundred Romanian first year dental and general medical students. (quintessenz.de)
  • The oral cavity is a contaminated area and a dental cleaning is a mildly invasive procedure. (vin.com)
  • procedure
  • Afterwards specimens of each material were polished chairside (testgroup) and in the dental lab in a standardized procedure (controlgroup). (quintessenz.de)
  • rods
  • In the following weeks, plaque increases with the introduction of Gram-negative rods, cocci and filamentous forms. (veterinarypracticenews.com)
  • Early plaque in health consists of a relatively simple bacterial community dominated by Gram-positive cocci and rods. (wikipedia.org)
  • health
  • The World Health Organization estimates that nearly all adults have dental caries at some point in time. (wikipedia.org)
  • differences
  • Differences were statistically tested for significance by Kruskal-Wallace-Test and Man-Whitney-Test (Bonferroni, pResults: There were important differences between the surface qualities of dental lab polish and chairside devices in all acrylic materials. (quintessenz.de)
  • microbiology
  • His first publication as a graduate student, on the adhesion of microorganisms to oil droplets (1980), became the most highly cited publication of FEMS Microbiology Journal and a "Citation Classic" by the Science Citation Index of 1991. (wikipedia.org)
  • After receiving his doctorate in microbiology, Rosenberg held various faculty academic positions at the Sackler Faculty of Medicine and Goldschleger School of Dental Medicine at Tel Aviv University, and has received honorary appointments at the University of Rochester, University of Pennsylvania, University College London (Eastman Dental Hospital) and University of Toronto.
