Restorative dentistry (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Restorative dental problems, although not as involved as those in human dentistry, can be very technique-sensitive and difficult to resolve. The resolution of particular problems is usually dependent upon the choice and imagination or inventiveness of the operator.

Ethical orthodontics (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Although human orthodontics can be traced back to 1000 B.C., veterinary orthodontics has just recently evolved. Attempts to correct malaligned teeth in animals have been attempted principally by owners and breeders of animals since the 19th century and possibly before.

Periodontal treatment: prophylaxis to surgery (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Periodontal disease begins as an infiltrate subjacent to the epithelium of the gingival margin and rapidly extends throughout the marginal gingiva to affect the connective tissue underlying both the oral and the sulcular epithelium.

Conventional root canal therapy for non-vital teeth (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Pulpal functions are 1) formative, 2) nutritive, 3) sensory, and 4) defensive.

Surgical endodontics (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Surgical endodontics is the treatment of choice where there is a history of recurrent facial swelling, the existence of anatomical or morphological problems, unresolved granulomatous tissue or sequelae remains after conventional endodontic therapy, or problems encountered during conventional endodontic therapy, such as fractured endodontic files or incomplete endodontic fill.

Dental extractions: diagnosis and simplified therapy (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Teeth are extracted for a number of reasons. These include periodontal disease, caries, advanced feline dental resorptive lesions apical abscesses, traumatic malocclusion, tooth root fracture, tooth crown fracture, retained deciduous, teeth, root tips, supernumerary teeth and client preference.

Radiographic dental anatomy and pathology (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Radiographs produced without distortion are of great use in dentistry and are far easier to interpret than those with superimposed, foreshortened, or elongated images. Whole books have been devoted to this very involved subject, but only the most pertinent points will be broached here.

Obtaining diagnostic intraoral radiographs (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

The bisecting angle technique has been the technique of choice for most intraoral radiographic techniques. This is especially true for maxillary exposures. The limited intra oral confines of the maxilla, lower incisors and canine teeth have made this technique the method of choice.

Performing vital pulpotomies: why and how (Proceedings)

May 1, 2011

Dentinal pulp occupies the interior cavity of the tooth. It consists of loose connective tissue intercellular substance, vessels, nerves, and fibers.
