IMPORTANT CHAPTER IN ORTHODONTICS : ERGONOMICS

ABSTRACT Orthodontists are commonly exposed to a variety of occupational hazards such as musculoskeletal disorders which can limit the quality of work provided by the dental professional towards their patients and ultimately affect the long term health of the orthodontist. The traditional methodology for prevention and management of dental related musculoskeletal pain was to adopt a proper sitting posture, reduce large scale movements and perform periodic stretching. Proper ergonomic design …Read More

GLIDE PATH IN ENDODONTICS: A REVIEW

ABSTRACT A reproducible glide path enhances the efficacy of root canal preparation. New and innovative techniques are being introduced to endodontic practice today directed specifically at preparation of glide path. A range of dedicated glide path instruments from stainless steel hand instruments to high cyclic fatigue resistant NiTi files have been introduced to prepare a reproducible glide path. The steel instruments were responsible for a higher incidence of canal aberrations. …Read More

MAXILLARY SINUS LIFT THROUGH LATERAL WINDOW APPROACH FOR DENTAL IMPLANT PLACEMENT IN ATROPHIC MAXILLA: A CASE REPORT

ABSTRACT One of the most challenging and technically sensitive surgical procedures in conjunction with dental implant rehabilitation is sinus membrane lifting to increase the bone height or volume from the maxillary sinus floor. This important preprosthetic surgical technique has been available for >15 years, making possible the creation of bone volume in the edentulous posterior maxilla for the placement of dental implants in surgically compromised cases. In the present case …Read More
