Excerpt from Mouth Hygiene: A d104-Book for Dental Hygienists F ive years have passed since the publication of the first edition of Mouth Hygiene, and during that period a number of schools have been organized for the education and training of the dental hygienist. The experience of these schools has shown that several of the funda mental subjects, such as anatomy, physiology, bacteriology, hygiene etc., require more extensive text than could be adequately covered in any one book. It is, therefore, recommended that standard text-books be utilized for such subjects. The second edition of Mouth Hygiene endeavors to meet the need of the dental hygienist for those subjects which pertain directly to dentistry and which are essential to her education.

Excerpt from Teeth, Their Natural History: With the Physiology of the Human Mouth No part of the human machine, comes so home to the regard and attention of all, as does the condition of the teeth. Our comfort, our health depend mainly, upon their correct and sound state. The loss or decay of teeth implies loss of health, consequent loss of appetite and good digestion. Indigestion must accompany any deterioration of their function. The performance of this function of diges tion properly can only be effected, and is a secondary process to a sufficient division of the particles of food, by effective trituration, and mastication in the mouth. Thus the food having already become reduced to a pulpy condition by admixture With the saliva during the process of mastication, is received into the stomach fit for digestion. The food in this state of division, is in a condition to be acted upon by the juices secreted in the stomach, becoming forthwith converted into What is called chyme, the first state arrived at in the process of digestion. This process commences the series of functions of assimilation, and nutrition; Without a correct performance of which, severe and painful ail ments supervene.

Teeth Tell Tales

Dental Wear As Evidence for Cultural Practices at Anse a La Gourde and Tutu (Caribbean)

Similar to the osteological study of prehistoric human remains, the study of human dental wear has been proven to afford a wealth of information on human cultural practices. This study is aimed at recording and understanding the dental wear patterns in human dentitions from the Caribbean archaeological sites of Anse a la Gourde, located on the most eastern point of Guadeloupe, and Tutu located on the small island of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands. The premise of this research is the assumption that dental wear patterns are informative of a great many aspects of human health and lifestyle. The use of the mouth and teeth in both masticatory and non-masticatory activities is assumed to leave traces which can be studied post mortem to infer the lifestyle linked to such activities. In order to build a complete picture of these activities and the lifestyle linked to the dental wear patterns, other lines of evidence are also followed here, such as ethnohistoric and ethnographical accounts, and evidence from modern dentistry Using the combined effort of different lines of evidence, it has been possible to characterize the diet and a range of cultural practices of the inhabitants at each site. The individuals selected in this sample very actively engaged their teeth in many non-masticatory, culturally defined activities, which put their dentitions under a great deal of stress. It seems these people's use of their mouths and teeth in this way was a very conscious decision, characterized by their cultural background.

This new book focuses on dental implants used in conjunction with other prosthetic devices in the general dentist's office, designed to help the partially or completely edentulous patient recover normal function, esthetics, comfort, and speech. Step-by-step procedures guide practitioners through challenging clinical situations and assist them in refining their technique. The information in this practical, highly illustrated book reflects the latest in continued research, diagnostic tools, treatment planning, implant designs, materials, and techniques. Prosthetic devices covered in this include complete dentures, bridges, overdentures, and various dental implant systems. A comprehensive chapter covering immediate load implants teaches dentists how to provide an edentulous patient with implants the same day surgery is performed. A thorough discussion of preimplant prosthodontic considerations takes the practitioner through the vital assessment steps necessary to plan treatment. Considerations for assessing the restorability of teeth adjacent to potential implant sites include abutment size, crown-root ratio, endodontic status, root configuration, tooth position, parallelism, root surface area, caries, and periodontal status. Fixed treatment planning options for the completely edentulous mandibular arches expands treatment options available to dentists, helping them to treat more patients. Material thoroughly explores the three dimensional concept of available bone and the implant treatment options for each type of bone anatomy, which enables practitioners to treat patients at any stage of edentulism. Comparisons of the periodontal indices for a natural tooth and an osteointegrated implant alert clinicians to fundamental differences in the support system. Basic biomechanics are discussed, demonstrating how these principles also relate to the scientific rationale for contemporary and future dental implant designs. A comprehensive discussion of bone density in an edentulous site explains this determining factor in treatment planning, implant design, surgical approach, healing time, and initial progressive bone loading during prosthetic reconstruction.
