Don’t wait until it hurts. Adopting the right working postures

Dr. Masashi Ishida , Dr. Jean-Michel Laffont , Dr. Duygu Ilhan PhD , Mr. Timothy Caruso PT, MBA, MS, Cert. MDT, CEAS

The dark and narrow space in the oral cavity can cause oral health professionals (OHPs) to adopt an unnatural posture during dental treatment, which can lead to serious physical impact and repetitive strain injuries. Ergonomics in dentistry should strike a balance between keeping the dentist healthy and providing efficient treatment.

Clinical concepts and emerging strategies in reconstructive periodontal surgery and periodontal and peri-implant infection control

Prof. Anton Sculean

Reconstructive/regenerative procedures in periodontology aim at rebuilding the periodontal supporting tissues which have been lost following periodontal disease or trauma. Substantial evidence indicates that in carefully selected patients and defects, combined with a strict pre -and postoperative infection control, reconstructive/regenerative periodontal surgery may lead to substantial clinical benefits evidenced by probing depth reduction, clinical attachment level gain, defect fill, thus improving long-term tooth prognosis and survival. Emerging evidence also suggests that the use of certain types of lasers and/or antibacterial photodynamic therapy (a-PDT) may result in reduction of inflammation and improved clinical stability, thus representing potential modalities for maintaining periodontal and peri-implant tissue stability.
