AAA After Appointment Action by: Ehab Heikal
A very typical frustration for many dentists is to have cancelled appointments. And I have discussed in another section of the book, that such cases should be punished in case of no show.
Bio-Minimalism: Trends and Transitions in Endodontics By: Martin Trope, Kenneth S. Serota
Preservation of natural tooth structure during an endodontic procedure is paramount in order to ensure predictable clinical success. In the past, access cavity preparation, instrument design and taper as well as spatial accommodation for obturation techniques has inadvertently induced iatrogenic potential to the results achieved and over time, functional stresses have caused the tooth to fail both biologically and structurally. The winds of change in endodontics are negating these unfortunately sequelae as a result of bio-minimalistic considerations in access, metallurgical and engineering redesign of files systems and the introduction of new obturation materials.
Can Flap Design Affects Patient Morbidity Following Mandibular Third Molar Surgery? By: Abdurrahman A. Al-Samman
Purpose: Surgical removal of impacted mandibular third molars is associated with various postoperative complications that influence the patients’ quality of life in the week following surgery. The purpose of this study is to review the effect of flap design on postoperative pain, swelling and trismus.
Materials: The PubMed database was searched for the related. Only randomized prospective clinical trials, that measure part or all of the secondary outcomes, were included.
Conclusions: Several different flap designs have been attempted to minimize these complications. Some of these designs may be advantageous in reducing postoperative pain and swelling. However, Flap design does not seem to have an effect on maximum mouth opening.
