Detection of vertical root fracture using cone beam computed tomography: report of two cases - Life Sciences Social Network

Vertical root fractures (VRFs) often occur in endodontically treated teeth and in patients older than 40 years of age. However, VRFs in teeth without endodontic treatment are relatively uncommon. VRFs are difficult to diagnose as the symptoms are non-specific or often delayed.

Dental Malpractice – A Dental Implant Nightmare | malpractice

Dental Malpractice – A Dental Implant Nightmare | malpractice | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
The oral surgeon in New York promised to give a patient a set of perfect teeth. All he needed to do was get 10 dental implants on his upper jaw, and 10 dental implants on his lower jaw. The patient, who never had implants before, agreed. He wanted a beautiful set of teeth. It had been many years since he had good healthy natural teeth, and when he arrived in the oral surgeon’s office for that first consultation, he had only seven decaying teeth remaining in his mouth.

Cone Beam Computed Tomography is Evolving

Cone Beam Computed Tomography is Evolving | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
As technology continues to expand patients’ options for dental care, Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) is evolving as an important aspect of imaging for many dental procedures. 3D Cone Beam imaging offers increased information and, doctors tell us, increased successful results in implant placement, endodontic treatment, orthodontic planning, surgical procedures, and airway and TMD analysis by providing a diagnostic dimension of precision from any and all points of view.

Penetration of the Inferior Alveolar Nerve: Thoughts on Protocols? | OsseoNews Discussions on Dental Implants

Penetration of the Inferior Alveolar Nerve: Thoughts on Protocols? | OsseoNews Discussions on Dental Implants | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
Welcome to an interesting discussion among dentists about nerve damage due to implant drilling. Note the strong recommendations for X-ray evidence to avoid injuries. However, also note resistance by some dentists.

Here's the confession that kicked off the conversation: "Out of hundreds of implants placed, I have had a few instances (three or four) where the drill penetrated the inferior alveolar nerve..."

Does your dentist insist on CBCT for treatment planning?

History and Technolog of Cone Beam CT for Dentistry

History and Technolog of Cone Beam CT for Dentistry | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
Available in Europe in 1999, and introduced in the United States in 2001, Cone-Beam 3D volumetric imaging (CBVI) is a new imaging technology that generates a 3D volume of image data. Using a cone-shaped x-ray beam rather than the linearly fan beam of conventional CT's, a CBVI scanner takes just one revolution around the patient to capture these multi-planar views.

CBCT Artifacts & How to Correct Them | CBCT For Everyone | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
With the advent of more affordable cone-beam CT systems (CBCT), a growing number of dental practitioners are investing in this equipment. But the increasing adoption of CBCT begs a parallel demand for users to correctly analyze and diagnose the resulting 3D volume datasets. One inherent aspect that makes this challenging is the presence of artifacts, such as noise, scatter, motion missing values, beam hardening, and rings.

Medicaid Payment Levels to Dentists and Access to Dental Care Among Children and Adolescents, July 13, 2011, Decker 306 (2): 187 — JAMA

Medicaid Payment Levels to Dentists and Access to Dental Care Among Children and Adolescents, July 13, 2011, Decker 306 (2): 187 — JAMA | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
Although Medicaid removes most financial barriers to receipt of dental care among children and adolescents, Medicaid recipients may not be able to access dental care if dentists decline to participate in Medicaid because of low payment levels or other reasons. Missing tooth solutions like implants occurs earlier for adults who did not receive good dental care as children.

Genetics can be a risk factor for dental implants

Journal of Oral Implantology — The health of the surrounding tissue affects the success of a dental implant. Identifying and reducing risk factors is therefore a key step in the implant process. Now a combination of genes has been identified as a possible indicator of greater tissue destruction, leading to negative outcomes for implants.

The authors of an article in the current issue of the Journal of Oral Implantology report on a study of individuals with the combination of interleukin (IL)-1 allele 2 at IL-1A-889 and IL-1B+3954. These people are “genotype positive” and are susceptible to increased periodontal tissue destruction.

Factors That Can Increase Risk Of Dental Implant Problems | Dental schools online

Factors That Can Increase Risk Of Dental Implant Problems | Dental schools online | Dental Implants | Scoop.it
Over time, the titanium in a dental implant fuses with the bone (a process called “osseointegration”), thereby holding the implant in place. This fusion also prevents the type of bone damage that is sometimes seen with dentures or bridges. And, because they are mostly metallic, they don’t decay like natural teeth sometimes do. Implants are better and more durable than other options for restoring lost teeth, including bridges and dentures. They are stable within the mouth, comfortable, convenient and aesthetically pleasing.

A DENTIST who was ordered to pay more than $1.3 million for damage he caused to a patient's mouth is continuing to practise in NSW, despite his own lawyers calling him negligent and incompetent.

Dr Mark Phung removed the nerves from every one of his patient's teeth, despite only three of them requiring surgery. Over 18 months and 53 consultations he installed 28 crowns, all of which need to be replaced.
